Evacuate us from Kashmir: Kashmiri Pandit govt employees SOS

New Delhi : Amid shock over the killing of Kashmiri Pandit Rahul Bhat, the Kashmiri Pandit PM Package employees on Saturday urged Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha to evacuate them safely from Kashmir in order to save their lives. “It is to apprise regretfully that we the PM Package employees under threat compulsion have finally decided that Kashmir is not safe for we people. It’s really unfortunate that being Indian, being Hindu we are being targeted again and again, day in day out we are being assassinated selectively,” the All PM Package Employees Forum wrote. “This package was given as confidence building initiative for we people but forget about confidence, we are not able to live here,” the Forum leaders added. Employees said that administration on daily basis take responsibility of their lives but they are being killed here on daily basis. They said they are being targeted in Kashmir for being Hindu and can’t stay in Kashmir due to Jihadist Terrorism. “Kashmiri Pandit is ready to serve anywhere in world but not in Kashmir due to Jihadist Terrorism. We the PM Package Employees and Non-PM Package Employees request your good self to please evacuate us safely from Kashmir province and save us,” the letter reads. Further, the Forum also threatened to give en masse resignation. “Sir, in case your good self is not able to do anything we are ready to give en masse resignation,” the letter read. Over 350 Kashmiri Pandit government employees submitted their resignation letters to Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Friday after their colleague Rahul Bhat, was murdered by terrorists. The recent episode has come as a setback for the government as it plans to return and rehabilitate Kashmiri Pandits in the Valley. About a dozen Kashmiri Pandits have been killed by terrorists since the Modi government abrogated Article 370 in August 2019 and bifurcated Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories.
