Jammu: Panun Kashmir (PK), an organisation of displaced Kashmiri pandits, today rejected the Sagir Ahmed report on the "Centre-State relations", and protested against it saying recommendations in the report do not address the cause of Kashmiri pandits.

Over 300-400 activists of the organisation held demonstrations here against the report submitted to the Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on December 23.

The activists alleged the recommendations do not address the issues of Kashmiri pandits who have been forced out from the valley by the Islamic fundamentalists.

"The report of the Prime Minister's working group on Centre-State relations headed by former Chief Justice of Jammu and Kashmir High Court Justice Sagir Ahmed is manipulated and is against the wishes of nationalist people of Jammu Dogras, Ladakhi Buddhist, Gujjars and Kashmiri pandits," PK president Ashwani Chrungoo told reporters.

"The report is illogical, unrealistic, biased and anti-Kashmiri pandits," he said during the demonstration where the activists shouted slogans against the recommendations in the report.
