Pandit body Panun Kashmir renewed its demand for carving out a separate ‘homeland’ for the community with union territory status within Kashmir, Press Trust of India reported.
The outfit observed the 30th ‘homeland day in Jammu to mark the adoption of Margdarshan resolution in 1991, Panun Kashmir Chairman Ajay Chrungoo said.
Charungoo said that the effect of ‘ignoring the genocide in Kashmir which forced the KP community to flee can be seen in other states.’
Eminent lawyer Tito Ganju claimed that “paper genocide” has been rampant in J-K right since the first census and the consequent delimitation that took place after independence.
He alleged that the current crisis is a direct fall out of “fudged census” which gave a “hegemonic clout” to Kashmir valley
