RBD protests against Rohingya, Bangladeshi immigrants in Jammu
Jammu, Jan 13 : Activists of right-wing group, Rashtriya Bajrang Dal (RBD), on Sunday staged a demonstration here against Rohingya and Bangladeshi immigrants and gave Governor Satya Pal Malik a week's ultimatum to deport them.
The protesters, some of whom wielded tridents, placards and the national flag, assembled outside a mall along Narwal bypass, not far from where a settlement of Rohingya Muslims is located.
They raised slogans in support of their demand for eviction of the illegal immigrants and later dispersed peacefully.
The RBD has given the Governor a week's time to take measures for the early deportation of the Rohingyas and Bangladeshi nationals. If the government fails to fulfill the demand, there will be a bigger agitation involving local residents, the protestors warned.
They claimed these illegal immigrants were involved in criminal activities like drug peddling and posed a threat to the region's culture.
