Srinagar: Rejecting the reports on some national media channels about the threat to Pandits living in Kashmir valley as a hoax the Kashmiri Pandit Sangarash Samiti (KPSS) said it was pre-planned conspiracy to divert the issue from Article 35 and 370.
Right now the Jammu and Kashmir is facing political instability and amid this political chaos the news item telecasted by National Media about the so-called threat to the Kashmiri Pandits living in Kashmir Valley is aimed to increase the trust deficit among the population living in the Valley, KPSS president Sanjay K Tickoo said in a statement here on Monday afternoon.
He said KPSS strongly believe that the religious minuscule minority (Kashmiri Pandit) who so ever is living in Kashmir Valley is living of his or her own and the kind of relationship maintained within their respective neighbourhood.
He alleged that it seems that the news item about life threat to Pandit in Kashmir Valley is a hoax pre-planned conspiracy and is aimed to sacrifice them to gain some vested interest political mileage and to distract people's attention from the issues related to Article 35-A and Article 370.
It also seems that by sacrificing the Pandit in Kashmir Valley, the vested interest agencies who are planning to do this heinous crime, want to justify the removal of Constitutional Articles, which give special status to the State of Jammu and Kashmir, before the world bodies, Mr Tickoo alleged.
Since the news items was flashed in the National Media, at some places in Kashmir Valley, some unscrupulous elements who belongs to the local Pandit community are creating communal tension and are causing harassment and threat to the local them while these elements openly telling the people that if these Kashmiri Pandits would not have continued to live in the Valley, the Security Forces would not have come during the night hours to disturb the Majority Community (Muslims) living in the area.
Now, the onus also lie on the local Majority Community who always claim tall to say that the Pandits should return to their native places but on the contrary are unable to stop these unscrupulous elements with vested interests who want to permanently damage and dislodge the Pandits living in the Valley.
He said Pandits have full faith in the masses and more particularly on their respective neighbourhood, who always stands at the hour of need and will not allow past mistakes to happen again which can permanently damage the social fabric of Kashmir Valley. We believe in unity against those trying to destroy our existence in Kashmir Valley, the statement said.(UNI)
