Addressing the convocation ,Dr.Ajay Chrungoo,Chairman,Panun Kashmir delved at length with the state of intimidation and challenges faced by the Kashmiri Pandit community in exile and castigated the policy makers for creating an atmosphere of second destablisation for the community after 1990 without addressing the forced exile and genocide of the community.He said,”All the frameworks on the return and rehabilitation of the internally displaced Kashmiri Hindus presented by the government so far have remained non starters .The return processes initiated by the government do not address the causes of forced exodus.Theoutlook underlying the return processes has so far failed to take into account structures and the forces which facilitated the destablisation of the kashmiri Hindus in the only Muslim majority state of India before and after 1990.the return processes of the government are bound to fail because they are based on the denial of genocide of the kashmiri hindus.He reaffirmed that the only model that can reverse the religious cleansing and genocide of the community is the establishment of the homeland for KPs in Kashmir with the free flow of the Indian constitution.”
While speaking on the occasion eminent thinker and writer Prof.Hari Om said,”the only solution to end the discrimination with the nationalist forces is the political reorganization of the Jammu and Kashmir state .Jammu state,Union territory of Panun Kashmir,Union territory of ladakh and the one time settlement of the 1947 refugees is the only way out to uphold the Indian nation in the state and defeat the anti national forces and separatists.’
Veteran freedom and member advisory Panun Kashmir,Pt.Omkar Nath Trisal,said,”In the struggle the vision is paramount and those who dilute the ideology are the enemies of the community and the struggle for resurgence for the creation of Homeland for the persecuted communities is the only way for the comprehensive resurgence of the KP community.”
Eminent scholar,Dr.Shashi Shekher Toshkhani while explaining the importance of the cultural moorings and significance of the rituals of the KPs said,”In exile while we have had the prime task of preventing the social disintegration and cultural disintegration .We have done fairly well in many areas concerning our survival in exile with dignity and honour.While doing all this we have to guard against disintegration of our ritual and folk traditions.The ritual traditions are enriching if they remain simple and aesthetically rich. Our community functions like marriages and yagnopavit will henceforth have to be simple and economical.”
Community leader and social activist from TRT Muthi,.P.L.Raina said,”The state of the camp dwellers and camp inmates is worst.The so called townships are akin to concentration camps meant to abet the continuous genocide of the KPs by subjecting the community to the state of desperation and intimidation as has been well established by the lack of water and electricity supply.”
While speaking on the occasion,Mahesh Kaul,research scholar said,”The need is to understand the nuances of the Indian state which has co opted the instruments that are hell bent to balkanize the Indian nation.Jammu and Kashmir in the Himalayas is in the cusp of the three forces that are working overtime to dismantle the Northern Frontiers.These include Islamic jihad,Chinese Imperialism and evangelical forces. The American exit in 2014 and US parleys with Taliban and Pakistan will have a direct bearing on the Kashmir issue.In such a state of affairs the KPs and other nationalist forces have the immense responsibility to safeguard the Indian nation in the Himalayas and in such a grim situation only Homeland can guarantee the reversal of KP genocide and religious cleansing.”
