Efforts on to change JK’s demography: Geelani

Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani Thursday said the “communalists responsible for Jammu massacre in 1947 were hell bent to change the demography of Jammu Kashmir.”
Paying tributes to the Jammu martyrs on their 67th anniversary, Geelani, in a statement today, said, “The massacre was perpetrated by communalists. On that fateful day, over two lakh Muslims were butchered in a ruthless manner in Jammu, Rajouri, Poonch, Udhampur and adjacent areas. A day before this gruesome event, the people desirous to migrate to Pakistan were asked to assemble in a ground and assured that they would be sent to Pakistan. People with their belongings and families assembled in the ground. They were flocked in trucks and at Samba, after segregating their daughters and young female members, the volleys of bullets were pumped into their bodies. In Miran Sahib, Domel, Kathua, Jivan Shah, Reasi, Akhnoor and Jammu, the brutal massacre of innocent Muslims was repeated which lasted for two months. It is a stigma for on the face of country like India. Its claims of being a big democracy are nothing but hoax.”
“We can never ignore this chapter of history and the memories of those who offered supreme sacrifices are still fresh and alive,” Geelani said, terming the event (massacre of Jammu Muslims in 1947) as “our national tragedy”.
He termed the verdict of tribunal in Bangladesh as sheer political reprisal, saying the death sentence awarded to Matie-ur-Rehman by Bangladesh court was shocking
