Ramnathi (Goa) : Nearly 3 decades have passed after the exile of lakhs of Kashmiri Hindus. In view of this, in support of the Kashmiri Hindu community in particular and across the country in general, the three non-negotiable demands should be implemented for the return and rehabilitation of the Kashmiri Hindus and save the Civilizational conflict country across the country in fast pace –

1. Acceptance of the problem as Religious Cleansing and Genocide !

The issue of return and rehabilitation of Kashmiri Hindus, who were exiled in the decade 1990, to Kashmir valley cannot be addressed without recognizing the fact that they were subjected to Religious cleansing and Genocide which eventually lead to their displacement. Addressing the issue of return and rehabilitation of Kashmiri Hindus in any other concocted context only compounds the problem and is tantamount to the denial of Genocide, which will replicate across the country on the similar pattern as in Valley.

2. Forming a Tribunal of Justice !

The Government of India should recognize the problem of uprooting of Kashmiri Hindus as Genocide and invoke the covenants of prevention of genocide. It was further resolved the government of India should create a tribunal to bring the perpetrators of Genocide of Kashmiri Hindus to justice.

3. Centrally Administrative Place, A Union Territory !

The Kashmiri Hindus be rehabilitated at one centrally administered territory by the name ‘Panun Kashmir’ (Our Kashmir) in Kashmir valley with free flow of Indian Constitution. A sustainable and permanent return of Kashmiri Hindus will be possible only in such a dispensation.

The above statement was made by Shri. Rahul Kaul, National Coordinator of ‘Youth for Panun Kashmir’ while speaking at a press conference organised on the side of the 8th All India Convention for the ‘Hindu Rashtra’ being held at Vidyadhiraj Meeting Hall in Ramnathi. Shri. Rohit Bhat, National Vice President of ‘Youth for Panun Kashmir’, Shri. T.R. Ramesh, President of ‘Temple Worshippers Society’ from Chennai and Shri. Ramesh Shinde, National Spokesperson of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti were present at the press conference.

‘The situation of Bengal now is similar to the situation of Kashmir 20 years back. And hence, Hindus should do something on time else their existence itself will be in danger’, said Shri. Rohit Bhat.

‘Twenty-nine long years have passed since the exile of Kashmiri Hindus. The newly elected Government should at least now take steps for their rehabilitation. We will keep supporting Kashmiri Hindus invariably till ‘Panun Kashmir’ is formed, said Shri. Ramesh Shinde, national spokesperson of HJS.

Unconstitutional take-over of temples by the Government should be withdrawn ! – T. R. Ramesh

Shri. T.R. Ramesh, President of ‘Temple Worshippers Society’ of Chennai said, “The Fundamental Religious Rights given under Article 25 of the Indian Constitution is available to all citizens including Hindus. Similarly, there is no religious bias or restriction that can be imposed on the Fundamental Religious and Administrative Rights that are available to Religious Denominations or sections thereof or to the Fundamental Cultural Rights available under Article 29(1). It is a fallacy to believe that these rights are available only to the members of the minority religions.

While so, the chronic policy of various State Governments to take over the control and administration of only Hindu Religious Institutions and Charities, for a never-ending period, is a lamentable deprivation of Fundamental Rights of Hindu Citizens. We demand that the various Governments should immediately hand over the administration of Hindu Institutions, in their States, back to the communities and the sampradayas (Sects) to which such Institutions belong. The Governments should modify the Religious Endowments Laws in their States to ensure that Religious Institutions and Charities of all Religions are only regulated by Law for the purposes of better management and are never controlled or taken over in violation of the Articles of the Indian Constitution”.

In the name of Secularism, Hindus are being deprived of Dharma Shikshan. The Vedpathshalas do not get any privileges from Government. But the temples in states like Kerala are taken over by Government run by communists, who in turn think Dharma as opium. All pro-Hindu organisations from various parts of India are coming together to fight this unconstitutional take over of temples’, said Mr. Ramesh Shinde.
