Jammu, March 14, 2017 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, in the wake of repeated attempts by Hindu communalists to flare communal tension in Jammu, Muslim youth have formed defense committees in their respective areas in self defense.
The youth are patrolling the streets and lanes during the night, media reports said and added that about 30 Muslim youth conducted night patrolling. They have been tasked to remain alert to detect any suspicious activity taking place around the Muslim areas.
About a hundred fanatic youth riding motorbikes came to Talab Khitikan area, yesterday, and shouted provocative slogans. A group of Muslim youth outside Jama Masjid in Talab Khatikan told media that they have taken yesterday’s incident very seriously. “It was a serious threat to our security.”
Expressing no trust on the authorities and police, the youth said, “Yesterday, the miscreants in large numbers came inside Talab Khatikan and tried to fuel the communal tension. Police have not filed any case against the miscreants”.
“The policemen were present there. They know who the miscreants were but none has been arrested. We don’t trust administration or police, who work as per the wishes of saffron groups. We have decided to defend our localities on our own,” the youth added.
