Without Pandits, Kashmir is incomplete: Omar Abdullah
J&K govt is making constant efforts to bring back Kashmiri Pandits to the Valley as without them, Kashmir is incomplete, CM Omar Abdullah said.
New Delhi: The Jammu and Kashmir government
is making constant efforts to bring back Kashmiri Pandits to
the Valley as without them, Kashmir is incomplete, Chief
Minister Omar Abdullah said on Wednesday.
"It is our constant endeavour to bring back Kashmiri
Pandits, who had left the Valley due to loss of sense of
security. We want them to come back to a good atmosphere
where they can feel secure. Without their return, Kashmir is
incomplete," he told reporters.
Omar`s remarks came when it was pointed out to him that
on this day 21 years ago Kashmiri Pandits had started
leaving the Valley due to militancy.
"It was a very sad day. Whatever we say it would be not
enough. Many attempts are being made so that they can
gradually come back to the Valley," he said.
The Chief Minister said his government was implementing a
programme for the rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits by
offering them employment avenues, transit and accommodation
"But this is a very small step. Until and unless the
sense of security that was snatched away from Kashmiri Pandits
is given back, probably they won`t come back home. We have to
give them that sense of security," he said.
