JAMMU: Making a mockery of the Migrant Immovable Property Act, 1997, the state government has encroached on land belonging to displaced Kashmiri Pandits in the Valley in the past two decades of insurgency.

Date :- 2020


Section 5 of the earlier Act which was passed during Dr Farooq Abdullah Government says that if any unauthorized occupant of any migrant property refuses or fails to surrender possession, the Competent Authority may use force for taking possession and evict the such occupant from the property.
However, after formation of the Act by the then J&K Government the distress sale and encroachment continued unabated as the earlier law had certain lacunas. Though the concerned District Development Commissioners were made custodians of migrants’ immovable property in Valley under the earlier Act but they failed to take action and restore the migrants land occupied forcibly or sold under distress.
However, now the competent authorities under the amended law can take suo moto action, prepare the details of migrants’ immovable property in a prescribed format and evict the unauthorized occupant of such property.
It may be recalled that various migrant organizations from time to time after enactment of Distress Sale Act in 1997 had made many representations before the State as well as Central Governments that the sale and illegal occupation of migrants immovable property goes unabated in Valley and the concerned authorities have failed to implement the Act in letter and spirit to protect the property of displaced people from Valley. Even there was a forceful demand from migrants to declare all distress sale by migrants over the years null and void as the Act in force had failed to protect the same.
Recently during their meeting with Union Home Minister, Amit Shah in Delhi a group of Kashmiri Pandit leaders had also put the demand before him stating that the migrants land and other immovable property has been either forcibly occupied in the Valley during the turmoil period or has been sold by some people under distress.
The delegation had also alleged that the successive Governments since 1990 failed to restore the land and other immovable property of migrants which could have been one of the reasons for the MHA to amend the Act to give it more teeth and ensure the protection of left over immovable property of Kashmiri migrants in Valley.

"After inputs about Pakistan trying to unite the scattered factions of the separatist Hurriyat Conference, the Jammu and Kashmir Police swung into action and arrested senior leader Ashraf Sehrai this Sunday morning. Sehrai is the chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat. "

"His arrest comes a day before July 13 which is Kashmir Martyrs' Day (Shuhada-e-Kashmir). Sehrai's son younger Junaid Sehrai alias Zaffar-ul-Islam, Deputy Chief of proscribed terror organisation Hizbul Mujahideen was recently gunned down by Security Forces last month.

Sources said that a day before Sehrai's arrest, acting chairman of Muslim League Farooq Towheedi was also booked under PSA."

Unbelievable.
Both Chairman and Secretary of J&K Board Of School Education are Hindus.

It happened for the first time after 1947.

No wonder then that.....are beating their chests and saying that their time is over.

Wasn't this mofo going to fly to Canada, claim asylum, and become a perennial anti-India voice? Why the eagerness to restart the political process of J&K? How many more concessions will Delhi make before the post-370 J&K looks no different from the 370-wallah J&K?
