Jammu, November 19: Several “communal enclaves” coming up in the city and its periphery and the builders are making allotments on religious basis which can be a threat to the social fabric.
The advertisement for these enclaves are being issued by developers on regular basis, but the state government seems to have turned Nelson’s eye towards this big threat to communal harmony emerging in the relatively peaceful region.
As has been widely reported, there are around 10 enclaves which have either already come up or are being set up in the vicinity of the Jammu Province that are based on communal lines. The developers of these enclaves who belong to a particular community are promising the people of same religion to get their plot registered within 15 days which indicates the existence of a network with government and revenue officials.
According to a developer named Yasir Malik, “We had around 400 plots in the Sunjwan area. Most have already been sold and only 15 plots are left. Barring 5 percent plots, all have been allotted to members of the Muslim community. We have taken special care of the religious sentiments of allottees.”
