JAMMU: BJP under the well knit policy is spoiling the case of PoK Displaced Persons (DPs) by recommending the case of Kashmiri Pandits to the Central Government to visit Sharda Peeth in PoK.
This was stated by Rajiv Chuni Chairman, SOS International while addressing a rally here at Maheshpura on Sunday.
During the rally, Chuni said that it is very unfortunate on part of BJP that it is totally spoiling the case of PoK DPs and distorting the history of J&K State by recommending the case of KPs to visit PoK, ignoring the facts that it were the PoK DPs only who were thrown out of the areas of erstwhile J&K State which is under illegal occupation of Pakistan and known as PoK.
“KPs have nothing to do with this PoK territory; they only want to associate themselves with the issue of PoK. Let me remind some historical facts to the BJP that it is only PoK DPs who were subjected to genocide in 1947 from the erstwhile areas of J&K State and not the KPs. For all these years no one from BJP ever recommended for our visit to our ancestral and religious places in PoK i.e, Ali Begh Gurudwara in Bhimber, Mangla Temple in Mirpur, Khoiratta in Kotli and Sharda Temple in Muzaffarabad. By recommending the case of KPs to visit Muzaffarabad is an attempt of BJP to spoil the case of PoK DPs. Here we want to know from BJP that why KPs were not demanding to visit PoK before their self imposed exile? BJP must distant themselves from this dirty politics of loving Valley migrants and hating PoK DPs,” Chuni asserted.
“We have been facing the brunt of various successive governments and the practice is still going on. I warn BJP that it must shun its practice of testing the tolerance of the community”‘ he added.
V.K Datta conducted the stage proceedings. Others who spoke were Prof J.S Mangal, Prof. N.N Sharma, Ved Raj Bali, Gurmit Singh Isher, Tilak Raj Sethi, Sharda Devi, Parmod Ghai, Sanjeev Kumar and Vijay Gupta.
