Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 19: In commemoration of Holocaust day the day when Kashmiri Pandits were hounded out of their homes and hearths by terrorists and Islamic Jehadis on January 19th 1990, All State Kashmiri Pandit Conference (ASKPC) along with other sociopolitical organization of the community held a demonstration outside Raj Bhawan.
Advocate Ravinder Raina President said that community has entered into 31st year of exile and living as refugees in their own country have been cheated by hollow promises of return and rehabilitation by all successive Governments. Government after taking into confidence the community leaders , should come out with a blue print for resettlement of community at One Place in Kashmir with political empowerment and economic rehabilitation, till then community be declared as internally displaced. He added that temples and shrines which are our religious heritages have been vandalized, destroyed and encroached upon by fascist and antinational elements, though requested number of times for passage of temple and Shrine bill demands for issuance of ordinance for management board to safeguard these religious heritage of our community.
Dr Tej Krishen Bhat General Secretary ASKPC in his address said that community has faced ethnic cleansing and genocide by Pan Islamic fundamentalists shall be probed by SIT headed by Supreme Court or High court Judge to fix the responsibility and bring the culprits in public domain and punish them. He said it is strange that in PM employment Package 6000 posts were sanctioned in 2008 but Alas! Only 3500 posts stand filled in 12 years time. This making most of the educated youths as over aged and demand that reservation upto 5% may be provided in central Government departments to these community unemployed educated youths and one time incentives for permanent settlement to over aged educated youth. He further said community appreciates the bold decision taken by Modi Government in abrogating the article 370 and 35A and reorganization of JK state which the successive government did not dare to touch or smash down the temporary wall of 370 and 35 A but regretted that seven months have passed the Government did not uttered a word for resettlement or welfare of the community though being the worst victims of turmoil and of Article 370 and 35 A.
Dr R L Pandita President PNBMT spoke on the occasion and said it is utterly shocking, nevertheless that generally in such large scale displacements; religious and ethnic angles are generally quite prominent. It seems required checks and balances have totally collapsed and rouge senses, instead, have taken over the fragile system order He urged that Government should give passage of the Temples and Shrines Act through an ordinance to protect the religious heritage of the community.
The prominent persons were Sundri Lal, M K yogi NCMC, T N Koul President, Ravinder Razdan, Kuldeep Raina Chairman, Desh Rattan Chairman AIMCC, Ashok Kangan JK VM, Sharda Nandan Bhat, B L Bhat President Nagdandi, M K Bambroo, P L Pandita(Shangroo) Social activist, Kuldeep Kashmiri President overaged youth, Sunil Pandita social activist Jagti , Ashok Koul TRT Nagrota and many more.
