Panun Kashmir firm on its homeland demandDecember 29th, 2007 - 8:36 pm ICT by admin
New Delhi, Dec.29 (ANI): On the occasion of its national convention day in the capital on Saturday, the Panun Kashmir, a leading organisation of Kashmiri Pandits, resolved to relentlessly pursue the demand for a homeland within the constitutional framework of India.
The convention demanded that in any future dialogue process, the atrocities suffered by the Kashmiri Hindus must be taken into consideration.
Speaking on this occasion, Dr. Ajay Chrungoo, the Chairman of Panun Kashmir, said: Our vision of Panun Kashmir is a vision of renaissance of Kashmiri Pandits. Nurturing of a political consciousness, based not on narrow sectarian considerations but on civilisational perception, has been our thrust. It has led to shedding of despondency and defeatism and ushered in a new era of hope and dynamism.
To sustain this dynamism and impart sufficient kinetics to our movement, a simultaneous rejuvenation of cultural consciousness was imperative,” he added.
Panun Kashmir demanded the immediate announcement of an employment package for 25,000 Kashmiri Pandit youth.
He also wanted the setting up of a special tribunal to address the issues concerning forcible occupation, fraudulent usurpation of Kashmiri Pandits properties and shrines along with the updating of electoral rolls.
