Jammu (J&K) – The Kashmiri Pandit Sangharsh Samiti (KPSS), an organisation of Kashmiri Hindus, has filed a petition in the J&K and Ladakh High Court. Religious minorities in the Kashmir Valley are under terrorist threat. Therefore, they have demanded to be relocated to safer places. The hearing of the petition is on 4th July. The KPSS are a group of 808 Hindu families who are living in 272 villages across Kashmir. They did not flee the Kashmir Valley, even after the jihadi terrorist attacks of 1990. Sanjay Tikku is the Chairman of this committee.

Central Government failed to protect the lives of religious minorities
The petition, filed by the KPSS, further said that despite increased terrorist attacks, the Government would not permit us to evacuate from the Kashmir Valley. This is the insensitivity of the Government. Terrorists have threatened to kill Hindus in Kashmir by distributing posters and letters. The Central Government and the State administration have failed to protect the lives of religious minorities.

Why does such a demand have to be made ? Why doesn’t the Government understand this on its own ?
