‘Stop’ destruction, desecration of Dogra Heritage Mubarak Mandi: JKNPP


Jammu, 30-07-2021: J&K National Panthers Party (JKNPP) Secretariat urged Lt., Governor Manoj Sinha, to stop conversion of the historic Mubarak Mandi Complex, Jammu signifying the rich and varied culture of Dogra History into a commercial-shopping centre in the name of entertainment, Tourism promotion, Hotel and Restaurants.

This is an insult to Dogra Cultural Heritage, a message of Panthers Party leadership.

In an emergent virtual meeting held today under the Chairmanship of Prof.Bhim Singh, President-JKNPP the senior leadership vehemently criticized the successive govts at the centre and state for planning to annihilate every symbol of Dogra Culture, Architecture, Palaces, Forts, Water Bodies. The cultural desperadoes did not stop destroying rich monasteries, old caves, Forests and Palatial Royal Houses in Kashmir and Ladakh regions.

Even Cultural Heritage was protected in Russia and China after a great proletariat revolution in 1917 and 1949 respectively. JKNPP declared that no one shall be allowed to demolish the great Dogra Culture under any circumstances.

In an urgent appeal to the President of India, Shri Ramnath Kovind for his urgent intervention, Prof.Bhim Singh stressed to stop cultural invasion over Dogra cultural history.

Amongst others who participated in the meeting included M/s. P.K Ganju (Sr. Vice President), Masood Andrabi (Vice President), Anita Thakur & Yashpaul Kundal (General Secretaries), Paramjit Singh Marshal (President-PTU), Neeraj Dewan (General Secretary-PTU) and Chetan Sharma (Member, Working Committee).
