Kashmiri Pandits voice against allotment of state land to Non-Kashmiris and demands restoration of Article 370

Monitoring Desk: Raising voice against allotments of state Kashmiri lands in Indian Occupied Kashmir to non-Kashmiri Hindus, the organization protecting rights of Kashmiri Pandit has objected settlement of non-Kashmiri Hindus and demanded the restoration of Article 370 for Jammu and Kashmir.

According to India Today, the RRR has written a letter to Prime Minister Modi and demanded him to restore the statehood and special status for Jammu and Kashmir.

It may be mentioned that New Delhi is allocating State Kashmiri land to Non-Kashmiri workers of BJP and RSS in Jammu and Kashmir and over half a million non-Kashmiri Hindus have already given land in IoK after the abrogation of Article 370 for Jammu and Kashmir.

Rejecting the abrogation of Article 370 of Constitution (Indian Constitution) the organization demanded immediate restoration of statehood and special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

“The Indian Constitution ensures the right to equality that extends to individuals, communities, religions, regions, and all social and political institutions. The right to equality ensures non-discrimination on the basis of religion, caste, region, or any other social and political sub-categories. Never before a state has been downgraded. This is not done in a democracy. One can’t have a military solution to a political situation and can’t go to war with their own people,” said Satish Mahaldar, Chairman of migrant Kashmiri Pandits’ organization Reconciliation, Relief, and Rehabilitation in a statement on Monday.

The statement added that the special provisions should be made to safeguard the interest and aspirations of the backward regions, to protect the cultural and economic interests of the people, safeguard the minorities and deal with the disturbed law and order in some parts of the state. The group has also pointed out that J&K wasn’t the only state with special status with other states to enjoying special category status.
