Islamic Jihadi terrorists have on Thursday, brutally murdered a 70-year-old Hindu jeweller for punishing him to obtain domicile certificate, buying a shop and a house in Kashmir. Notably, the 70-year-old Satpal Nischal hails from Amritsar, Punjab and has been living in Srinagar for the past 40 years.

A nascent jihadi terror outfit, TRF backed by Pakistan has claimed to have committed the despicable murder of the septuagenarian Hindu to terrorise Hindus from settling down in Kashmir using the new domicile laws. TRF is an amalgamation of the banned Jaish-e-Mohammad, Lashkar-e-Taiba and Hizbul Mujahideen. The TRF claimed that everyone other than Kashmiris, read Muslims- as the terror outfit itself consists of Pakistani Muslims, would be treated as “occupiers” and eliminated. The elderly Nischal’s body was ridden with bullets in Srinagar’s congested Saria Bala area.

Nischal had bought a shop at Hanuman Mandir in the heart of Srinagar and a house at Indira Nagar near the Army headquarters in Badami Bagh Area. A new outfit of J&K called the United Liberation Front of J&K extolled TRF for eliminating the 70-year-old Hindu and called for further such “hard” treatment to “occupiers and stooges”.

Notably, the erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state subject laws along with Article 35-A of the Constitution did not allow any Indian citizen from outside J&K territory to own property or become its state subject, it slyly allowed Muslims from Pakistan to become J&K state subject; these and many more anti-women, anti-Dalit discriminatory J&K special laws were repealed by the neutralization of the notorious Art. 370 of the Constitution.

The BJP government led by PM Narendra Modi after neutering Art. 370, enacted new domicile law for Jammu and Kashmir through the Prsident’s Rule to pave way for according the Indian citizens in J&K hailing from other states of India, the right to reside and hold property in J&K. The Gupkar gang (People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration), consisting of all the pro-jihadi Muslim parties of J&K along with national anti-Hindu parties like INC and the Left, openly made provocative statements inciting jihadi terrorism in J&K for restoration of the divisive Art. 370 and erstwhile discriminatory domicile laws.

 Farooq Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti even sought intervention of Chinese and Pakistanis brazenly for restoring their exclusive Islamic state status of J&K. Both the Abdullahs and Muftis along with other jihadi secessionists claimed the neutering of Art.370 and repeal of Art. 35-A along with the new domicile laws are aimed at changing the demography of J&K. The reality is both the NC & PDP openly supported the jihadi terrorists in 1989-90 to commit genocide of the miniscule minority indigenous Hindus of Kashmir to turn Kashmir into an Islamic state sans any minorities to aide secession of J&K from India.

While the Muftis and Abdullahs converted Kashmir as theocratic Muslim entity, they systematically started settling Muslim Gujjars, Backerwals, even illegal Bangladeshi Muslims and Rohingya Muslims from Burma illegally in Jammu including areas next to army stations in Jammu. They also enacted the illegal Roshni Act to regularise these illegal settlements in Jammu to change the demography of Jammu and encircle Hindu majority areas of Jammu with these jihadi Muslim settlements to aide future 1989-90 like genocide of Hindus in Jammu. Already in many areas of Jammu, Hindus are either in minority or 50-50% providing a conducive environment for jihadi terrorism in Jammu.

In this light, the new domicile laws were aimed to help Hindus and Sikhs to settle in J&K to correct the hegemony of Islamic jihad in J&K and try to stem Islamic terrorism. It is noteworthy that many of the nationalist Muslims of Kashmir who joined the BJP as an alternative politics for the terror ridden state have been systematically targeted by the jihadi terrorists and some of them even lost their lives to the attacks by the jihadi elements.

The role of the Mehboobas and Muftis in justifying and inciting murder of Hindus and Sikhs in J&K who obtain domicile certificate under the new laws cannot be denied. The complete silence and tacit acquiescence in the murder of the septuagenarian Hindu in Kashmir is very palpable by the solidarity shown to the jihadi terrorists by the so-called secular media personalities like Barkha Dutt, Rajdeep Sardesai, Sagarika Ghose, Saba Naqvi, Karan Thapar etc. when they justify murder of Hindus, Sikhs and the few nationalist Muslims of J&K.

The Government of India should either provide adequate security to Hindus and Sikhs of J&K or facilitate them to arm and train themselves in self-defence if the government is not able to provide security for all. Given the all pervading wahabi-jihadi ideology in Kashmir which nourishes Islamic terror to exclude all other communities other than Muslims who support secessionism of Jammu and Kashmir from India, it only makes sense for the Government of India to separate the Kashmir valley from Jammu as a separate Union Territory. Kashmir should be further divided to have well protected areas housing retired army personnel along with Kashmiri Hindus trained in the art of warfare having their own Village or Area Defence Systems.

India will have to take further tough measures along with the welcome step of neutering Art 370 and enacting new domicile laws to ensure that Jammu and Kashmir does not end up becoming Greater Kashmir as desired commonly by the jihadi terrorists and Muslim parties of Kashmir.
