KPSS to Kashmiri Pandits: Terrorists on Tuesday attacked two Kashmiri Pandit brothers in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir, in which one brother was killed. Whereas, the other got injured. Let us inform that in the last one week, terrorists have increased attacks in the Kashmir Valley. Leaders of various political parties, including Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, have condemned the killing in Shopian district. Amidst all this, the Kashmiri Pandit Sangharsh Samiti (KPSS) on Tuesday appealed to the people of the community to leave the Valley in the wake of the killing of Kashmiri Pandit community by terrorists. KPSS said that Kashmiri Pandits should leave the Kashmir Valley, or else all will be killed by fanatical minds.

Terrorists will kill all Kashmiri Pandits: KPSS

KPSS chief Sanjay Tikku said that through yet another attack by terrorists on Kashmiri Pandit in Kashmir Valley, terrorists have made it clear that they will kill all Kashmiri Pandits in Kashmir Valley. Sanjay Tikku said that he has appealed to all Kashmiri Pandits to leave the Valley and go to safer places like Jammu, Delhi.

For how long will Kashmiri Pandits continue to die like this?

Sanjay Tikku told news agency PTI-Bhasha that this is what we have seen for the last 32 years. He said that the government has failed to provide security to minorities, especially Kashmiri Pandits. How long will we keep dying like this? It's enough. The KPSS chief said there was intelligence that terrorists may target more members of the community, following which those targeted in Tuesday's attack had requested senior administration officials to shift them to safer places. He said that it was unfortunate that the officials told him that he had to stay in their villages. What is this matter? They had information about the possibility of an attack and even after that they did not give us security.

Know who is Sanjay Tikku

Sanjay Tikku, the head of Kashmiri Pandit Sangharsh Samiti, is one of those Kashmiri Pandits who still live in Kashmir. Now he represents non-displaced Kashmiri Pandits. Sanjay Tikku, who lives in Berber Shah Mohalla in the Habba Kadal area of ​​downtown, says that different governments cared a lot about the Kashmiri Pandits who left here, but no one thinks about those who are living here. Sanjay Tikku says that when Manmohan Singh announced relief and rehabilitation of displaced Kashmiri Pandits, the Kashmiri Pandit Sangharsh Samiti had demanded a share for non-displaced Pandits as well. According to Sanjay Tikku, even after the migration in 1990, about 800 families remained in Kashmir. Between 1996 and 2021, 581 minorities were killed.
