Member Legislative Assembly Langate, Sheikh Abdul Rashid has accused Kashmiri Pandits of defaming majority community and playing in hands of New Delhi to work against interests of their own state.
"Time has come to tell Kashmiri Pandits louder and clear that their anti-Kashmir activities are unacceptable and they will be seen as enemies of Kashmir if they don't give up their shameful campaign against Muslims," he said adding that by observing 19th January as "Holocaust day" and calling their self-styled migration as genocide and ethnic cleansing "these deserters" have proved that their one point agenda is to defame the "resistance movement" and prove Kashmiri Muslims communal.
"The protests they held yesterday, were arranged and patronaged by strong lobbies within state and central governments and unfortunately a section of biased national media left no stone unturned to prove them right,"
Rashid said adding that Kashmiri Pandits enjoying in Bollywood, universities and other prestigious places besides political renegades were all united yesterday to abuse Kashmiri Muslims. "Let world community know that Kashmiri Pandits were not the only ones who left the Valley but security agencies a section of Kashmiris belonging to religious and political organizations to migrate from their ancestral places and bulldozed their houses, orchards and other properties in broad day lights."
He said why do Kashmiri Pandits feel shy in confessing that they were told to leave Kashmir in 90s so that Kashmiris are butchered once for all and then Kashmiri Pandits would return as the lone owners of Kashmir? "Without counting deaths let Kashmiri Pandits understand, if death of 209 Pandits is genocide, what name should be given to the brutal murder of one lakh Muslims in 25 years, as if they have gone to a picnic and will return soon," he said.
