IN J&K, the percentage of muslims and kashmiris has risen from 1947 with the forced exodus of the kashmiri pandits. This fact is well known I hope to most of you. However, another demographical shift is slowly but surely taking place in Jammu city, which has traditionally been the abode of hindu Dogras. Because of article 370, there is lack of industry in the state and hence, most of the dogra youth is emigrating outside the state for job oppurtunities in private companies. THe state jobs are given preferentially to muslim kashmiris and muslim paharis. Also, kashmiris and paharis are moving en masse in to Jammu city. There are whole neighbourhoods, where these communities are found in majority, however, the reverse cannot happen as Kashmir is still (rightly) regarded as unsafe for hindu dogras. What will happen once, Jammu becomes majority muslim? Only time will tell however, traditionally dogras have been very patriotic. The same cannot be said about kashmiris. Can this situation be remedied?
