Fresh incidents in IIOJK outcome of Article 370 abrogation: Pandit leader

Srinagar, October 10, 2021 (PPI-OT):In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, in rejection of Modi regime’s claim of normalcy, head of Kashmiri Pandit reprehensive body, Kashmiri Pandit Sangarash Samiti, Sanjay K Tickoo has said, it seems like 1990’s situation has returned to the territory.

In the wake of recent spate of killings in IIOJK, Sanjay K Tickoo in a media interview in Srinagar said that the fresh incidents of killing are an outcome and backlash of abrogation of Article 370, suppression of local people and subsequent celebrations made by the members of Pandit community living outside Kashmir. These Pandit community members, he added, danced and said that they had defeated Kashmiri Muslims.

Sanjay K Tickoo said that Article 370 was their identity and should not have been removed. In response to a question, he said that he was, for the first time afraid after abrogation of Article 370 on August 5, 2019, and he had to keep all necessary documents in the custody of a Muslim neighbour for safety. At present, 808 Pandit families are residing in the Kashmir valley, he said. Sanjay K Tickoo criticized the occupation administration saying that it has “miserably failed” to respond and protect the community.
