JAMMU, May 24: Panun Kashmir expressed its deep concern over the issues pertaining to the genocide and ethnic cleansing of the Kashmiri Pandit community in Kashmir, which remained unanswered till date.
Addressing a press conference, Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo, President, Panun Kashmir said that most of the nations of the globe constituted crime tribunals and special courts to try those responsible for terror and genocidal crimes, but the Governments in India took a soft approach and allowed derailment of the due process of law.
He demanded constitution of a full fledged Crimes Tribunal in Jammu and Kashmir to go into the excesses committed against the KP community during the last three decades.
The NHRC decision and the observations made by the courts and the other accredited human rights bodies in context of the Pandit mass exodus in Kashmir should form the basis of the judicial review of the crimes committed against the humanity. All hate crimes, acts of genocide and ethnic cleansing should also be duly brought before the Crimes Tribunal. Panun Kashmir should be made a party to the official complaint to the Crimes Tribunal and a senior Supreme Court judge be appointed the Chairman of the Tribunal. All those responsible for the heinous crimes against the Pandits and other minority community members should be brought to justice under the purview of the Crimes Tribunal”, Chrungoo demanded.
Prof ML Raina, Chairman, Political Affairs Committee expressed the view that the payments received by the separatist elements in Kashmir from illegal sources are an old affair. They have been doing so always and that is why that a large number of sections of the society in Kashmir wield a big economic clout despite thirty years of terrorism and mayhem in Kashmir, he added.
Virender Raina, National Spokesperson, PK said that it is alarming to note that a young Kashmiri Pandit boy working in the security apparatus in Kashmir is missing for the last ten days. He appealed to the Chief Minister who also happens to be the Home Minister of the State to take personal interest in this issue and get to the bottom of the mystery behind this episode so that the official of the State is traced.
