Hindus in Kashmir ask to be relocated to safer places

  • Petition of Kashmiri Pandit Sangarash Samiti in J&K and Ladakh High Court
  • Alleged that Central Government and State administration failed to protect Kashmiri Hindus

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.

Kashmiri Pandit Sangharsh Samiti’s tweet –

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.

Editorial Viewpoint

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