KPs demand separate homeland in Kashmir Valley
Jammu: Kashmiri Pandits today took out a
car-bike rally to mark the 20th anniversary of `Margdarshan`,
a resolution adopted by the community members resolving to
fight for the creation of a separate homeland in the Valley
The `margdarshan`, adopted on December 29, 1991 in Jammu,
advocated a separate homeland having union territory status
for seven lakh displaced Kashmiri Pandits on the North and
East of the Jhelum river.
"We reiterate our demand for a separate homeland," Panun
Kashmir chief Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo told reporters here.
A separate homeland alone would meet the aspirations of
the Kashmiri Pandit community, he said.
