There is a strong protest in Jammu and Kashmir now days and Amarnath land issue has now turned into a religious fight between the Hindus and Muslims of J&K. There is regular bandh and protest on the roads for the revocation of Amarnath Land and other demands.
The Government should take care of the current demand and the need of hour to control the situation. It would be very difficult if the situation is not controlled in near future. Jammu is already doing protest since last four months and the flames are visibile in karhmir too now. Government should intellegently handle the situation for peace and social interest.
The situation was out of control when protest were going on in Jammu. It became worst with the death of top Kashmir Hurriyat leader Shiekh Abdul Aziz and protestors. Jammu Kashmir Government tried to solve the matter with an all-party meets in Srinagar and Jammu, with the top leaders of the region, but in vain. It is visible that there is feeling for pakistan on saturday August 16th, when the Kashmiri people crossed all the extent as they wave Pakistan flags at condolence meeting of Aziz, which was organised at Pampore town of the Valley.
A small piece of land, barely 40 acres in area, which was allocated for Amarnath pilgrims, caused the unpleasant circumstances in Jammu and Kashmir. Several people have lost their life and hundred others severly injured in the violence protest in Jamu Kashmir . It is quite understandable that many of Kashmiri people have developed different indset, which can be dangerous in coming time. Nobody could have imagined that a small piece of forested land would create so much hue and cry in the state.
