Kashmiri Pandit organizations called for Holocaust Day on Thursday for commemorating their exodus from the valley and demand to make separate homeland there as envisaged in their “margdarshan resolution in 1991”. They asked for the honorable return of Kashmiri migrants to their native places in the valley.
The former chief minister of Jammu & Kashmir and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said in the assembly that,
“Mein ek baat kehna chahta hoon ki Kashmiri Panditon ko 27 saal ho gaye wahan se aye huey”
He also added that Muslims and Sikhs also migrated from there later on. He said everybody needs to rise above respective political lines and discussed how to take migrants back to their native places.
The other leaders present at the assembly are BJP member Ravinder Sharma, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Abdul Rehman Veeri and Kavinder Gupta, they all supported Omar’s suggestion. However, MLA Engineer Abdul Rasheed opposed it and said,
“no one in Kashmir is against the return of migrants, the government should also focus on the return of migrants across the Line of Control from Keran, Karnah, Uri, Poonch, Gurez and other parts who are migrated because of “atrocities by security forces.”
He accused the government, for lacking focus in seriousness and commitment to serious issues, and also added its on Kashmiris Pandits as to when they wish to settle permanently at their ancestral places in the Valley which they visit often.
