Jammu, December 09
It is time that Jammu region looks itself into mirror and discover what has gone wrong and how the outsiders are exploiting its artificially created weaknesses but lay a real claim on its natural resources. Jammu is denied everything.
Jammu’s instincts reacting angrily to anything and everything constitute a bad strategy . It is the job of strategists and government to check terrorism and its spread in the name of religion , Jammuites have better things to do keeping their future in view .
Let the facts speak for themselves- the definition of Jammu region has been cleverly and mischievously undermined . it has been reduced to plains of Jammu. That is bad for the region and its prospects to progress . The demography and geography has been reduced further with the builders and settlers from across the state, have made their religious and ethnic presence felt in a big way.
The region has to blame itself for what has befallen on the people here . It may hurt badly. The glaring fact is that the whole of Jammu region refuses to be seen ax an integral part of India . This is because the hills have been instigated against plains and vice-versa on communal and ethnic lines .
It inflicts divisions within the psyche of the people of the region . Hills dominated by Muslims have started looking to the Valley and empathizing with its religious oriented cause. There is no political issue involved. Kashmir is a religious problem of a particular sect and others have been rallied behind the so-called political cause because of the attitude of the Indian security forces who view all Kashmiri Muslims with suspicion and hostility.
In the “ Kanak Mandi” mindset there exists no region besides the agenda and map drawn by the trading community traditionally affiliated to Jan Sangh mentality , no mater it has acquired a new name of Bhartiya Janta Party. The philosophy and ideology is as toxic as it used to be during the days of Partition . The hills react in equal measure .
The hills should have been coopted with equal development and opportunities for one and all . The plains sought to do with the hills what it complained o Kashmir Valley doing to it – discrimination .
The charge of discrimination was inadvertently assumed communal overtones that too emanating from the plains . The hills were remote , unconnected and lacking development and the so-called mainstream of Jammu politicians whether from Congress or BJP , promoted the hills versus plains because it suited their polarisation agenda. They did not bother even for a minute that they were losing the trust of the people of hills and when the Muslims in erstwhile Doda and Rajouri and Poonch started writing graffiti of picking up guns on the pattern of the Valley youth , plains were quick to club them with militancy . The rifts grew and continued to grow to the point that the region as it exists on the map in south of Pir Panchal range of Himalayas is facing almost an inevitable threat of fundamentalism and subsequent and disintegration.
