Jammu: All Parties Migrants Coordination Committee (APMCC) on Wednesday claimed that the "forced detention" of two of its leaders in Ramban district smacked of a conspiracy by the state government to create a wedge between communities.
"The forced detention of the two activists at Ramsoo, in Ramban district, smacked of deeper conspiracy by the state government to create a wedge between the communities," in-charge Kashmir APMCC, Sandeep Bhat, said here today.
APMCC chairman, Vinod Pandit, along with spokesperson, King C Bharti, was detained after they were reportedly trying to visit the newly discovered cave shrine at Krawa village in Banihal, in Ramban.
Bhat, though, said that the two leaders had no intention to visit the recently discovered holy cave of lord Shiva and were on their way to Kashmir.
He termed the detention as "ill conceived" and "illegal" and insisted that it was in violation of fundamental right to move freely.
Bhat added that Pandit along with Bharti was on his way to Kashmir to finalise the forthcoming religious events in various temples when they were stopped at Ramsoo and detained for more than eight hours without any valid reason and were later slapped with charges under different sections.
"The whole episode was a well planned conspiracy of the state government to deny Kashmiri Hindus their fundamental right of freedom of movement and performing their religious activities," Bhat alleged.
