Commenting on the debate over the return of Kashmiri Pandits, Hurriyat (g) Conference said that we always welcome their homecoming and encourage every move which helps their return. Let them come back, live as they previously used to, along with their Muslim brothers.
Hurriyat in a statement said that they have wholeheartedly and sincerely wanted them to come back, but will oppose any move to settle them in separate colonies as it negates the very fabric of our social, cultural and mutual bonds.
Commenting on the governor’s statement that separate settlement for Pandiths is a compulsion and not a choice, Hurriyat said that if decisions sub-servant to compulsions, then there is every possibility of fading away from the realities under the veil and dust of compulsions which everybody can narrate according to his own choice.
Hurriyat Conference said that Pandits have been made show pieces to malign and communalize the ongoing movement. Some self-centred and political opportunists exploit their “victimhood” for their own dividends.
Hurriyat welcomes with open arms every displaced citizen of this state including those who suffered similarly in 1947, 1965, 1990 should also be amongst the beneficiaries, the spokesman said.
