After abrogation of Article 370 and 35-A Pandits would find new atmosphere in Valley
9/23/2019 10:39:20 PM
After the revocation of Article 370 and 53-A Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has promised delegations of Pandits settled in Houston that the Government of India was committed to build a new Kashmir where Pandits too will have to stay because right from 1990 these pandits, over 3.50 lakhs, plus those who had earlier left the valley comes to seven lakh souls. And these Pandits are supportive of the Government for abrogating Article 370 particularly 53-A which could allow free space for the Pandits migrants. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had a "special interaction" with a 17-member delegation of Kashmiri Pandits in Houston and assured them of "building a new Kashmir" which would be for everyone.
The delegation, which included Kashmiri Pandits from across the US, met Prime Minister Modi on his arrival in Houston as part as part of his week-long visit to the US.
"Kashmir mein naee hava bah rahee hai (New winds are blowing in Kashmir) and we will all build a new Kashmir together that will be for everyone," he told the delegation. The Indian government on August 5 revoked the special status given to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated it into two union territories. Modi also thanked the community for their patience for over 30 years. "I had a special interaction with Kashmiri Pandits in Houston," Prime Minister Modi later tweeted. He hoped that under the changing situation Kashmiri Pandits will be part of the family in Kashmir without being insulted by Muslims.
When the state of Jammu and Kashmir was given the special status and the state had separate citizenship laws poor Kashmiri Pandits had no other alternative but to bank on Government jobs. But with the lifting of 53-A new industrial revolution may greet the valley and other parts of the state. Pandits have some misgivings about the current security scenario that too when Pakistan has been resorting to ceasefire violations. And in Rajouri sector 50 domestic animals were killed and scores of houses of civilians were hit by mortar shells and other bullets. However, the Indian troops did not retaliate because they had the potential of war on the borders. And earlier when the Indian troops retaliated sufficient damage was caused in Pakistan. But this time Pakistan has shown the supremacy of resorting to ceasefire violations to push groups of militants into the state of Jammu and Kashmir for the purpose of escalating violence.
