Sangrash Samiti alleged in a statement that the Government in
Statement said that, “we demand that the facts be brought to light by the Government through the probe, that what were the factors which turned this peaceful heaven into hell overnight in the year 1988-89. The probe should fix responsibility on the people who contributed to drive the common Kashmiri youth to seek obeisance in violence and fell into the lap of an enemy country. The Commission should also probe the angle of conspiracy between the individual officials of Government security Agencies from centre and the State facilitating the smooth LOC crossings by thousands of Kashmiri youth for arms trainings across and returning with heavy weaponry. As per records available with different Government Agencies 29.9.92 AK47/56 rifles, 10895 pistols/revolvers, 1021 UMG’s, 2096 RPG’s 385 sniper rifles, 69 GPMG’s have so far been seized by the security Agencies in last 20 years. It is also a recorded fact that the security Agencies have caught 28025 trained militants and killed 16774. How is this possible that such a big number of local youth did cross the LOC and return with huge weapon to create havoc in the State without the active support of tools of Government machinery. We demand that all these aspects should be investigated in detail to fix the responsibility on the erring officials”.
Besides, as is known to the State and Central Governments that we the members of Kashmiri Pandit Sangarsh Samiti braved all risks and dangers to stay back in our homes and hearths in the worst kind of situation. We throughout these years of turbulence have been observing another dirty nexus between the politicians local & National political parties. The politicians in Kashmir in convenience with a section of political bigwigs in different National parties have been misleading the Nation on the ground situations to grab more and more financial packages from centre out of which measure portion is pocketed by these politicians, thus playing havoc with the State, the involvement of politicians is also to be probed so that nobody in future could camouflage to mislead the nation. The Commission must also probe factors which led the different Agencies to create havoc by forcible disappearances, questionable encounters and human rights abuses which instead of bringing peace to the State worsened the situation and alienated some segments of the population and led to cross-border terrorism and further violence in the valley.
The Commission must probe factors which led the different security Agencies to create havoc by encouraging forcible disappearances, custodial killings and inhuman tortures which instead of bringing peace to the State worsened the situation and alienating more & more youth from mainstream to join gun totaling youth to fight against Indian writ in the State. The Commission should also probe. The factors about the role of the officials of the State police and civil administration, who worked at the dictates of the militants and other subversive elements and carried forward their agenda.
The Commission after in-depth enquiries and investigations into the above facts must draft a policy document for the Government to be adopted and implemented for the permanent peace in the State to avoid innocent killings of common Kashmiries, distress among the youth and should also find out the ways for the return of Kashmiri migrants from Jammu and other parts of the country.
