Why Satyagraha in JK?

via www.bjp.org published on June 10, 2006

The BJP is of the considered view that any ambivalence on the part of the authorities would only help the terrorists spread their tentacles to other areas of Jammu province and that it would be suicidal not only for the minority Hindus but for the entire nation. What the BJP immediately wants is:



(a) Creation of adequate number of village defence committees around all the Hindu-dominated hamlets in Doda, Udhampur and Rajouri districts;


(b) Creation of similar village defence committees in the upper reaches of Kathua district;


(c) Supply of sophisticated arms, including Ak-47s and Ak-56s to the members of these committees;


(d) Attachment of members of Special Task Force with the members of village defence committees;


(e) Establishment of Army camps and deployment of paramilitary forces around all the Hindu-dominated hamlets and villages in these four districts;


(f) Construction of all weather roads in these areas;


(g) Installation of a modern and round-the-clock workable sophisticated communication network in all these areas;


(h) Search operations in all these areas on an extensive scale and elimination of terrorists wherever they are found;


(i) Enhancement in emoluments. Rs. 1,500 per month is too meager a salary. The minimum salary must be to the tune of Rs. 5,000 per month;


(j) Enactment of anti-terrorist laws and revival of POTA;


(k) Employment to members of the bereaved families;


(l) Destruction of the entire terrorist-related infrastructure in Pakistan and Pakistan-occupied-Jammu and Kashmir;


(m) Outright rejection of such divisive and unsettling formulations as self-rule, greater autonomy, united States of Kashmir, division of the state into seven communal zones, eradication of physical borders, soft borders, demilitarization, joint management, joint control, shared sovereignty et al; and


(n) Isolation of the so-called moderate Hurriyat leaders and others of their ilk, who are masquerading as the “true and genuine representatives” of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.


(0) Reversal of the militant-friendly “healing touch” policy and initiation of criminal proceedings against those released under this policy.
