Kashmir Pandits continue protests, demand relocation

SRINAGAR — Kashmiri Pandits on Saturday hit the streets again in Rajbagh area of Srinagar in central Kashmir to register their protest against the killing of Rahul Bhat at Chadoora, Budgam.

Witnesses told the news agency Kashmir News Observer (KNO) that the protesters were holding banners that read, “Our only demand relocation/Deputation of all valley posted migrant employees to any other place in India to stop our bloodshed.”

“We make it clear that without relocation, we will not accept any decision of the government regarding our safety and security,” the protesters said.

Chanting slogans, they demanded an end to the targeted killings of the members of the Pandit community. The protesters said that their only demand is to relocate them from Kashmir as they don’t feel safe here.

“We are not getting any attention from the government so far, that is why we have been protesting for the last 10 days. Send us out of Kashmir because we are not here to die,” a female protester said.

“I do not understand why the government is not awake yet. No concrete decision has yet been taken by the government for our safety,” Vinod, another protester said.
