Reacting to the news item carried by National Media about the threat to the Kashmiri Pandits living in Kashmir Valley, Sanjay Tickoo head of the Kashmiri Pandit Sangarash Samiti on Monday said that news item telecasted by National Media is aimed to increase the trust deficit among the population living in the Valley.Tickoo in a statement said that KPSS strongly believe that the religious minuscule minority (Kashmiri Pandit) who so ever is living in Kashmir Valley is living of his own and the kind of relationship maintained within their respective neighborhood. It seems that the news item about life threat to the religious minuscule minority (Kashmiri Pandit) in Kashmir Valley is a hoax pre-planned conspiracy and is aimed to sacrifice the Kashmiri Pandits in Kashmir Valley to gain some vested interest political mileage and to distract people’s attention from the issues related to Article 35-A and Article 370.
Tickoo said that the news items was flashed in the National Media, at some places in Kashmir Valley, some unscrupulous elements who belongs to the local Majority Community are creating communal tension and are causing harassment and threat to the local Kashmiri Pandit population while these elements openly telling the people that if these Kashmiri Pandits would not have continued to live in the Valley, the Security Forces would not have come during the night hours to disturb the Majority Community living in the area. Now, the onus also lies on the local Majority Community who always claim tall to say that the Kashmiri Pandits should return to their native places but on the contrary are unable to stop these unscrupulous elements with vested interests who want to permanently damage and dislodge the Kashmiri Pandits living in the Valley.The Samiti also impressed upon all the Kashmiri Pandit residents living in Kashmir Valley to remain cautious and if they see or feel anything untoward in their respective areas of residence, they should beat their rooftops to inform their immediate neighborhood about the security issue. The Samiti also requested the majority Community to attend the call of distress after hearing the noise created by beating of rooftops by their immediate Kashmiri Pandit neighbor.
