DISCRIMINATION WITH MUSLIMS OF JAMMU REGION
Jammu Regional Muslims are neglected in each and every field; The Muslim dominated areas of Jammu Region are most backward. Jammu Muslims are Economically, Educationally, Politically and in respect of development are backward, Kashmiri Ruling parties emotionally blackmail us on the ground of religion for vote bank politics, We the Muslims of Jammu Region shall find out the root causes of our backwardness and will make effo
rt to eradicate same. So we welcome suggestions/ advice in this regard as well we need your volunteer support for the uplift of Muslims of Jammu Muslims. Despite we are 40% of total population in Jammu Region our condition is still miserable. Let us think over it and do something for the future of our next generation.From Dogra Rule to till date the sufferings and neglect of the people of Jammu & Kashmir in general and Jammu province in particular. People of J&K have suffered more socially, psychologically and emotionally. People of Jammu province have additionally suffered more of neglect as regards the developmental activities. Worst sufferers have been the erstwhile districts of Doda ( Kishtwar/ Ramban), Udhampur ( Reasi ), Rajouri Poonch and Kathua & Jammu Distt. The areas of Doda, Kishtwar, Mendar,Poonch, Rajouri, Gool Gulabgarh, Doodu Basantgarh, Bani, Bhaderwah, Plesa, Marwah , Pogal Paristan and like were the poorest of the poor before 1947 and they remained neglected even after 1947. These areas had and have lot many pleasant spots, meadows, lakes, rivers, forests, valleys, cascades, and local crafts that could attract the tourist / visitors during the summers and winters for planned stays. The Muslim Pockets of Jammu Region were neglected under a game plan resulting into Economically, Educationally, Politically remained backward despite fact that Jammu Muslims are 40% of the Jammu regional Population.

Jammu Muslims are never been President of Jammu Chamber of Commerce.
Jammu Muslims are never been president of Jammu Bar Council.
Jammu Muslims are never given High Political Post in the state.
Jammu Muslims are never selected for Govt. Jobs not as per the ratio of 40%. The Politicians did nothing about the welfare and development of the Muslims of Jammu in their election manifestos.

None of the political parties either is national or regional has mentioned anything To add to the misfortunes of the people of J&K the approach of the national and international media too had been partisan in the sense that it looked only on the other side of the heights of Pir Panjal . It has been only at the times of elections to legislature / parliament that to regional and national political parties the people of poor, backward and distantly placed areas of Udhampur, Doda, Kathua , Rajouri , Poonch appear to be more dear.
