The genocide of Kashmiri Pandits continues unabated even after 33 years since they were driven out of their homeland, Panun Kashmir, the biggest political organisation of displaced Kashmiri Pandits said on Thursday while observing their 33rd holocaust day.

“Today, we gather here to attest that the genocidal campaign unleashed on Hindus of Kashmir in 1989-90 is still far away from having abated. It’s still going on,” said Dr. Ajay Chrungoo, Chairman of Panun Kashmir.

He was addressing a public gathering in Jammu’s Buta Nagar migrant camp on the occasion of Kashmiri Hindus’ Holocaust Day observed on Jan 19, in commemoration of the tragic exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley.

Dr. Chrungoo also criticized the BJP-ruled govt. for dicey and experimental policy towards resettling Kashmiri Hindus in the valley. He said, “ The fact that Kashmiri Hindus are held hostage to an Islamist Order ruling the roost in Kashmir is proven in the way the Government of India has treated the issue of recent cycles of selective genocidal Hindu killings in the valley. One more religious cleansing has been unleashed under the very nose of PM Modi’s Government and the Hindus are being forced to return to the Genocidal environment to use them as a smoke screen to hide the ongoing Jihadi war in Kashmir.”

He also urged the people to organize themselves and resist ill-executed government policy directed at the rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits. “It’s time for all the Hindus of Kashmir to mobilize and resist with all might, the murderous experimentation unleashed by the Government of India on Hindus of Kashmir,” he added.

They protested against the continuing genocide of Kashmiri Hindus and the centre’s ‘Policy of Denial’. The protest was led by Dr. Ajay Chrungoo, Chairman of Panun Kashmir, Advocate Ankur Sharma, Chairman of Ikk Jatt Jammu Party, and Sh. Tsering Samphel, former MLA and President of the Ladakh Buddhist Association.

The protestors demanded that the Government of India should recognize the persecution of Kashmiri Hindus as Genocide, enact a law to prevent such events and punish the criminal and create the Union Territory of Panun Kashmir to the East and North of River Jehlum for settling back Kashmiri Pandits.

A group of  Kashmiri Pandit community today, also paid obeisance at Gurudwara Sis Ganj, the same place where Guru Teg Bahadur was martyred while defending the right of Kashmiri Pandits to live in Kashmir and follow their religion with dignity.

The  recent rise in killings of Hindus and Sikhs in Kashmir has evoked concern for displaced Kashmiri migrants and their rehabilitation. A large number of Kashmiri Hindus came together to seek blessings to reverse the continuing persecuting and killings perpertrated by Jhadis in Kashmir. Neal Pandita, coordinator of Roots in Kashmir said that Hindus can survive only if they’re settled in a separate area, otherwise they’ll be like sitting ducks for the jihadis.
