The GB Bhavans aim to foster community cohesion and support, ensuring that the Gujjar Bakkarwal people have access to vital services and a hub for cultural activities.

Land Allotment: Securing Permanent Settlements

Highlighting the importance of land security, Moosa urged for the allocation of land parcels to GB community members. “Securing land for our community is essential for establishing permanent settlements and ensuring the security of tenure,” he stated. This initiative will enable the community to build homes, cultivate lands, and create sustainable livelihoods for future generations.

Promoting Entrepreneurship and Startups

Moosa also highlighted the importance of fostering entrepreneurship and supporting startups within the GB community. By encouraging innovation and business development, the community can create new economic opportunities and drive self-sufficiency. This approach aims to harness the entrepreneurial spirit of the GB people, providing them with the tools and resources needed to succeed in various industries.

A Call for Unity and Advocacy

Concluding his address, Syed Basharat Moosa called for unity and collective effort in advocating for these initiatives. “By championing these projects, we can pave the way for a brighter and more prosperous future for the GB community in Jammu and Kashmir,” he asserted.
