Srinagar:Commenting on the debate over the return of Kashmiri Pandiths, All Parties Hurriyat Conference (G) Led by Syed Ali Shah Geelani said that we always welcome their home coming and encourage every move which helps their return. Let them come back, live as they previously used to, along with their Muslim brothers.

In a Statement to Wilayat Times, Hurriyat(G) said that we wholeheartedly and sincerely want them to come back, but will oppose any move to settle them in separate colonies as it negates the very fabric of our social, cultural and mutual bonds.

Commenting on the governor’s statement that separate settlement for Pandiths is a compulsion and not a choice, Hurriyat(G) said that if decisions sub-servant to compulsions, then there is every possibility of fading away the realities under the veil and dust of so-called compulsions which everybody can narrate according to his own choice.

Hurriyat Conference(G) said that Pandiths have been made show pieces by fascist forces to malign and communalize the ongoing movement. Some self-centered and political opportunists exploit their “victimhood” for their own dividends.

Hurriyat(G) welcomes with open arms every displaced citizen of this state including those who suffered similarly in 1947, 1965, 1990 should also be amongst the beneficiaries.
