Kargil ignored in first Ladakh tableau: chief of Hill Council

Share with

Old faultlines between Buddhist Ladakh and Muslim Kargil have emerged in the Republic Day tableau of the new Union Territory of Ladakh.

The first tableau of Ladakh will depict the Thiksey Monastery in Leh and the Indian Astronomical Observatory in Hanle, and Kargil feels ignored.

Feroz Ahmad Khan, Chairman of the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC) Kargil, has written to Lt Governor R K Mathur protesting that โ€œcultural and religious symbolsโ€ of Kargil have been ignored.

โ€œIt is unfortunate to note that a singular aspect of Ladakh has been incorporated for display on the UT Ladakh tableau during Republic Day, thereby failing to showcase the rich and diverse religio-cultural fabric of Ladakh,โ€ Khan has written. โ€œIt is felt that (the) partial visual representation of the UT at an event as prominent as the National Republic Day celebrations alienates the people of Kargil district.โ€

Khan has asked that the tableau be modified: โ€œLAHDC Kargil wishes to request you to kindly pass necessary directions to the concerned for incorporation of religious/heritage sites and cultural ethos of Kargil district in the UT Ladakh tabeau.โ€

Khan told The Indian Express that the administration did not consult the people of Kargil before finalising the tableau. โ€œLadakh is not only Leh, it also includes Kargil, and there are other distinctions within Leh and Kargil,โ€ he said. โ€œWe feel sad at being ignored. There were many important religious and cultural sites in Kargil which could have been displayed, but they didnโ€™t consult anyone โ€“ not even the elected representatives like us.โ€

Sajad Hussain, a prominent social and political activist of Kargil, said the tableau reflects the way the BJP thinks about Ladakh.
