NEW DELHI, 28 July, 2020 - he All India Minority Front (AIMF) has demanded the government to ensure early rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits amid adequate security in the Valley, from where they were forced to flee by Islamist terrorists in late 1989 and early 1990.
In a press statement issued on Tuesday, the party chief Mr SM Asif has raised the demand for the return of all Hindus displaced in the valley.
In the statement Mr Asif has praised the central government’s decision to abrogate Article 370 and 35A whose pernicious impact has destroyed the Kashmiri society, culture, civilization, economic progress and the ability to lead a peaceful life in the Valley.
The AIMF chief stated, “The AIMF hopes that the expectations of the displaced and refugees will also be met soon. The process of safe and dignified rehabilitation of the displaced Hindus of the Kashmir Valley should be started at the earliest.”
In the statement, Mr Asif has suggested a single concentrated rehabilitation plan, including employment and other rights, enshrined in the Constitution as well as restoration and rebuilding of temples, shrines and community assets, including crematoriums.
The AIMF also demanded a massive drive to generate employment and to ensure heavy investment in various sectors of the new union territory’s economy.
