Separate colonies for Pandits in IOK unacceptable: Shabbir

Srinagar, May 05, 2016 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, the General Secretary of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, has said that the separate colonies for Kashmiri Pandits in the territory are unacceptable to the people and they will resist the move tooth and nail.

Shabbir Ahmed Shah in a statement issued in Srinagar termed the move as conspiracy to erode the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and to change the demography of the territory by settling non-Kashmiris in these colonies in the garb of Pandits.

“It is deep rooted conspiracy of RSS and BJP to settle the non-resident Kashmiris in Jammu and Kashmir under the garb of these separate colonies for Pandits. Such Israeli type settlements in Kashmir won’t be tolerated,” he said.

The APHC General Secretary said, the Kashmiri people are not against the return of Pandits as they are the indigenous residents of this land but they should return to their respective places in the Valley where they used to live in the past. He said that the Kashmiris would not let any conspiracy against the integrity and security of the territory succeed at any cost.

Shabbir Shah appealed to the Kashmiri Pandits not to fall prey to the nefarious designs of the elements who wanted to exploit them and were bent to create communal disturbance in Kashmir. “Kashmiri history is witness that this place is an abode of communal harmony. There are some mischievous elements who want to harm this mutual brotherhood,” he said. The APHC General Secretary said that PDP-led puppet regime would be wholly responsible if it let its BJP-RSS masters impose their communal agenda in occupied Kashmir.
