The Panun Kashmir, an organisation of displaced Kashmiri Pandits, on Friday submitted a memorandum to interlocutor Dineshwar Sharma urging the Government of India to take immediate steps to liberate the Pakistan occupied parts of Jammu & Kashmir in consonance with the unanimous resolution passed by the Parliament in 1994.
The delegation led by Ashwani Churangoo pointed out that the displaced Kashmiri Pandit community continues to live as refugees in its own country.
The delegation demanded that the Articles 370 and 35A have become an unnecessary baggage, as there is a ‘national consensus’ to review these absurd laws that are in contravention of the fundamental rights guaranteed under the Indian Constitution to the citizens of India.
A serious dialogue process should be initiated for the establishment of a separate homeland in Kashmir valley as explicitly demanded in the Margdarshan Resolution of 1991.
They said that there is an imperative need to restore peace in the Kashmir valley.
The Pandit community has all along supported the initiatives that have the potential to restore law and order. Being the victims of terrorism, the Pandits want complete elimination of terror from the valley.
