AIKS & others pay rich tributes to Sh. Jagmohan

Jammu, May 04 (Scoop News)- AIKS has learnt with deep regret the passing away of Sh. Jagmohan ji in the early hours of May 4, 2021.
Sh. Jagmohan, despite having tendered many important assignments in his eventful life, is synonymous with Kashmir.
He was appointed Governor of erstwhile J & K state on April 2, 1984, when the internecine strife in the ruling National Conference, post Sheikh Abdullah’s death, had impacted the state very adversely. During the President’s rule in the State, which was imposed on March 7, 1986, Jagmohan worked tirelessly to tone up the State’s administration which earned him great accolades from the local population.
Later, he was again appointed the Governor of the State on January 18, 1990, when Farooq Abdullah’s administration had all but disappeared and he had resigned. Despite arriving very late on the scene, Jagmohan wasted no time to stem the rot create by subverted administration, breakdown of law and order and Pakistan-sponsored JKLF literally calling the shots in the whole Valley. However, his tough handling of the situation did not go down well with the power elite in Delhi. Jagmohan has described in detail his struggle against such forces in Delhi who constantly stymied his efforts in Kashmir, in his magnum opus, My Frozen Turbulence in Kashmir. Taking a cue from Pakistan and working under the influence of anti-national elements who exercised great deal of influence on the V P Sigh government, Jagmohan was removed from his post.
Kashmiri Pandits, the biggest sufferers of the Jihadi violence let loose by Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) on them, have always felt that had Jagmohan been persisted with in the State, the situation, perhaps, would not have reached the proportions that it did in the coming two decades.
Later, to justify violence, let loose against non-Muslims of the State, many myths were floated by the separatists in Kashmir, ISI in Pakistan and jihadi supporters in Delhi with the sole purpose of turning Jagmohan into fall-guy. Many gullible Indians too fell for this propaganda.
It may be mentioned that Jagmohan had been appointed as the Lt Governor of Delhi by Congress Government, Governor of J&K by Rajiv Gandhi, and V P Singh Governments respectively, and a cabinet minister by NDA Government, not because of his political connections but because of his abilities, integrity, and high sense of duty towards his country.
Jagmohan was among the ablest administrators of post-independent India, a man of exceptional commitment to national cause and a far-sighted patriot, whose work has not yet been evaluated, leave alone appreciated.
All India Kashmiri Samaj expresses its heartfelt condolences on his demise and prays to the almighty to grant Sadagati to the departed soul. We salute this outstanding son of India.

Panun Kashmir organised a webinar today to condole the passing away of Shri Jagmohan, the former Governor of the erstwhile state of Jammu & Kashmir. While paying glowing tributes to the former Governor Virender Raina said that Shri Jagmohan was the saviour of Kashmiri Pandits who saved them from near total annihilation in 1990.He added that Shri Jagmohan was a true nationalist who reversed the onslaught of the secessionist forces and saved Kashmir from the clutches of Pakistan. Shri Jagmohan's role was most crucial and critical in establishing the writ of the state at a time when anarchy and lawlessness was the order of the day. The selective killings of the Kashmiri Pandits had created a fear psychosis and they were forced to leave in a state of panic. Under these circumstances the role of Shri Jagmohan in furthering the interests of the nation and suppressing the terrorist forces would be remembered always with great respect by all the nationalist forces and Kashmiri Pandits in particular.

Virender Raina while addressing the webinar appealed to the government to establish a full-fledged Covid treatment centre in Jagti township hospital with adequate supply of high flow oxygen and ventilators to meet any eventuality. Virender Raina said that Jagti is a large township with nearly 4500 families living there and it is absolutely essential to provide them the medical facilities at the doorstep because of the distance between Jammu and Jagti. We also appeal to the health department to ensure adequate supply of all those medicines required for the treatment of Covid -19.

Upinder Koul, General Secretary said in the webinar that Shri Jagmohan Ji was not allowed to continue for long as the Governor of the state in his second term as his stint was cut short, otherwise the mayhem and terrorism in Kashmir would have ended long back. The manner in which he has written about that dark period of our history, we can call him the modern age Kalhana.

The prominent who addressed the webinar included Kamal Bagati, General Secretary (Org), Sameer Bhat, Convenor PK Youth, Ashok Chrungoo, P.K. Bhan and Kewal Krishen Koul.

J&K National Panthers Party held a condolence meeting on the sad demise of Shri Jagmohan who expired yesterday. The Panthers Party described Shri Jagmohan as one of the unique administrators with democratic and secular approach in dealing with the disturbed situation whether it was in Goa or in Delhi and left a memorable page in the political history of J&K when J&K and Ladakh was a state which was founded by Maharaja Gulab Singh in 1846. It was Shri Jagmohan during his two times Governorship in J&K (1984–89 and 1990 for a short period). Prof.Bhim Singh, President, J&K National Panthers Party & Sr. Advocate in his condolence message expressed deep shock on the demise of Shri Jagmohan who, Bhim Singh said was one of his political teachers from whom he had learnt how to treat and behave with the political rivals in the field.
NPP President in his condolence message to the family of Shri Jagmohan and all the admirers and associates of Shri Jagmohan in the India International Centre, New Delhi where Shri Jagmohan spent hours every day in the Library. His books namely, ‘Rebuilding Shahjahanabad, the Walled City of Delhi’, ‘Island of Truth’, ‘My frozen turbulence in Kashmir’, ‘The Challenge of Our Cities’, ‘Soul and Structure of Governance in India’, ‘Reforming Vaishno Devi and a Case for Reformed, Reawakened and Enlightened Hinduism’ & ‘Triumphs and Tragedies of Ninth Delhi’. His book relating to the political situation in J&K, ‘My frozen turbulence in Kashmir’ is worth reading to understand the political turmoil in J&K. Shri Jagmohan had diagnosed the political situation in J&K and Bhim Singh hoped that all those who are claiming to deal with J&K must read at least this book, ‘My frozen turbulence in Kashmir’. Had the rulers in New Delhi studied Jagmohan’s books on J&K, they would not have committed blunder by converting the State of J&K into two Union Territories. In a condolence resolution by the Panthers Party which was resolved, the Panthers Party conveyed condolences on the sad demise of one of the greatest administrators, thinkers, writers whose message of great contribution shall prove a treasure for the students of political science and history all over India.
Prof.Bhim Singh had an opportunity to represent the Assembly as MLA when Shri Jagmohan came to J&K as Governor for the first time as well as second time.

Shri Ram Sena, State President Rajiv Mahajan condoled the demise of former Jammu and Kashmir Governor Jagmohan Malhotra who breathed his last in New Delhi on Tuesday. “My deepest condolences to his family.
May Almighty grant eternal peace to the departed soul”.
“Saddened to hear about the demise of Jagmohan Ji, Former Governor of J&K. He was a
great visionary, dynamic and effective administrator. Jagmohan Ji will be remembered for his
great contributions, reforms in J&K and untiring efforts to serve the society”,.
