The Kashmiri Pandits workers of the Jammu and Kashmir government should be temporarily relocated to Jammu till the situation in Kashmir improves, according to Democratic Azad Party leader and former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Ghulam Nabi Azad.

He expressed concern for the Kashmiri Pandits’ safety and suggested that the government relocate them to Jammu since life is more important than work. According to Azad, “The Government should relocate Kashmiri Pandit personnel to Jammu and only relocate them back when the situation improves.”

He declared, “If our administration wins, we would relocate the Kashmiri Pandits to Jammu till the situation improves.

Last week, Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha stated that Kashmiri Pandits working in the Valley would not receive their salary if they were not present for work.

Pandits from Kashmir who have left their homeland have been opposing the government’s decision, saying they fear for their safety from militants and are unable to return to their jobs.

“The most recent death threat we’ve received was on Wednesday night. We were informed that there would be a policeman stationed outside the location of our posting. However, we do not have faith in the administration’s security strategy “a Kashmiri Pandit stated.

“The predominant cause of the demonstrations is Kashmir’s unstable situation. Since the first targeted killing against the minority population in the Valley occurred, we have been protesting. We want that the government station us in locations that are secure and safe “Rohit, a Kashmiri Pandit who is taking part in the demonstrations, stated.

Since October of last year, a number of targeted killings have occurred in Kashmir.

According to an earlier NIA charge sheet, targeted killings in the Kashmir Valley were a component of a larger plot by Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists and other terrorist organisations that have been designated as being proscribed to disturb the peace and democratic process established by the Panchayati Raj System in the valley as well as to sow terror among the politically elected representatives.

The information was made public when the National Investigation Agency (NIA) charged six people in the deliberate assassination of the Sarpanch of the Adoora hamlet in Kulgam, Jammu & Kashmir.

The anti-terror organisation submitted the chargesheet in the matter of the targeted murder of Sarpanch Shabir Ahmad Mir by the terrorists of the outlawed terrorist group Hizbul Mujahideen before a special NIA court in Jammu.

The case was re-registered by the NIA on April 8 after being first lodged on March 11 at the Kulgam police station in Jammu & Kashmir.

According to the NIA, investigations have shown that the handlers of the outlawed terrorist group Hizbul Mujahideen, who are based in Pakistan, planned the targeted murder of Sarpanch Shabir Ahmad Mir in cooperation with other terrorists, Over Ground Workers, and Hizbul Mujahideen terrorists active in the Kashmir Valley.
