Voting and ‘ghar wapsi’ must for Kashmiri Pandits: Shiv Sena

The Shiv Sena has demanded the voting rights and an honorable ‘ghar wapsi’ of the displaced Kashmiri Pandits of Jammu and Kashmir

Shiv Sena in its mouth piece, Sammana said, “Jammu and Kashmir now has a stable government of the BJP and the PDP, and a strong administration led by Narendra Modi at the centre. Since Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s government has been formed with the BJP support, he must take a decision on ‘ghar wapsi’ of displaced Kashmiri Pundits”.

Shiv Sena in the article raised doubts over what will be Sayeed’s proposal for the displaced Kashmiri Pandits after his government released the extremists and also spoke about their rehabilitation.

“Sayeed has said developing separate areas for Kashmiri Pandits…does this mean creating a slum or slum development project for the ‘sons of the soil’? Even this proposal has been opposed by the separatists,” the party pointed out.

Referring to the voting controversy where Shiva Sena had declared they would take away the voting rights of the Muslim community, it questioned how many Pandits had voted in the last election that was held in the state.

“Many people are crying themselves hoarse over the voting rights of the Muslims, but no ‘Owaisi’ (Asaduddin Owaisi) or other secularists ever raised the same question (of voting rights) for Kashmiri Pandits. To ensure the victory of candidates on religious lines or Pakistan supporters in Jammu and Kashmir, the voting rights of Kashmiri Pandits have been crushed,” the party alleged.

The fact that not a single Hindu legislator was elected in the last election is an ominous sign in this direction, as Kashmiri Pandits have been uprooted from their own homes and outsiders have usurped them, it added.
