Srinagar, May 13 (UNI) Demanding immediate ban on anti-Gujjar posters and other printed materials being distributed in Jammu and Kashmir, the Tribal Research and Cultural Foundation (TRCF) said it was provocative.
The national secretary of the TRCF, an organisation working on various aspects of tribals of India with special focus on Gujjars, Dr Javid Rahi today said government should ban such material, which is not only politically motivated but provocative.
He alleged that Pahari Cultural and Welfare Forum (PCWF) had released the anti-Gujjar material yesterday.
''We make the appeal to ban the material to avoid any confrontation between Gujjars and Pahari speaking people of the state,'' Dr Rahi said and demanded criminal proceedings against PCWF.
It was politically motivated having selfish ends, he said.
Dr Rahi questioning the PCWF survey on Gujjars, said the banners and posters carry provocative and discriminatory remarks against the community.
