'Give us homeland, we will forgive': Panun Kashmir to Dr Farooq
Jammu, Jan 8: Reacting to the statement of National Conference, Patron Farooq Abdullah asking for 'forgiveness' on what he termed ethnic cleansing of Pandits in Kashmir, Panun Kashmir on Saturday said that the community can 'forgive', if their demand for a 'separate homeland' is fulfilled.
"Kashmiri Pandits cannot forget the facts of history but can think in terms of forgiveness once their demand of Homeland is fulfilled," Panun Kashmir, President resident Ashwani Chrungoo said in a statement.
“Abdullah's statement on the mass migration of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley has only opened wounded raw wounds and the merely asking for forgiveness will not resolve the plight of the community,” he added.
"It has only opened up the raw wounds of the Kashmiri Pandits. The issue of resettlement of Kashmiri Pandits in Kashmir cannot be resolved by merely asking for forgiveness or the so-called economic packages of the government," he said.
"The establishment of Homeland in Kashmir for Kashmiri Pandits is the only way out for a permanent resettlement of the community in Kashmir which leaves no scope for further bouts of exodus." he said.
