The situation is worse than in 1990 – Kashmiri Pandit Organization
Let us tell you, after the continuous target killing on Kashmir by the terrorists, questions are being raised about the security in the valley. Amid deteriorating security arrangements in the Valley, several Kashmiri Pandit organizations have decided to postpone this year’s visit to Mata Kheer Bhavani. Kashmiri Pandits living in Son Kashmir and Jagti, the largest colony of displaced Kashmiri Pandits in Jammu, have decided not to undertake this yatra this year.
According to Shadi Lal Pandita, president of Son Kashmir and Jagti Tentations Committee, the situation in Kashmir at the moment is worse than in 1990. He said that in 1994, his organization had gone on a pilgrimage to Kheer Bhavani with some sages and saints, since then this yatra has been going on continuously and for the last 2 years this yatra could not be done due to the crowd.
However, this time the kind of situation that is being created in Kashmir and the way Kashmiri Pandits and Hindus are being targeted, it is not appropriate to undertake this yatra. He said that in this regard, his organization has instructed about 50,000 such Kashmiri Pandits not to travel this year, who had expressed their desire to go on this yatra this year.
