The Sheikh Community in Baramulla is being discriminated on the basis of Caste/occupation. They have being deprived by the Government of their basic needs. This poor community has been residing in the localities of Noorbagh and Khojabagh of Baramulla since more than one century, according to the locals. The inhabitants of Sheikh Mohalla have been putting up on the state-owned land in shanty slums. This community has no resources to construct houses on their own because of the weak economic situation. Abid Salaam reports
