Jammu,  January 19

Jammu and Kashmir legislative Assembly  on Thursday passed a resolution  seeking a dignified return of Kashmiri Pandits and other migrants to their homes in the Valley.

The idea of the resolution was mooted by National Conference’s working president Omar Abdullah on Thursday– the day that also marked the 27th anniversary of  the exodus of  a majority  of the Kashmiri Pandits harassed and persecuted by   militants  in 1990 .

January 19 has also been listed as “ holocaust” day in the calendar by some of the Kashmiri Pandit  organisations as that is seen as the beginning of their  exodus  after a series of select killings in the Valley.

The resolution said that all the migrants, Kashmiri Pandits, Muslims and Sikhs should be restored to their  homes with dignity and honour  in the Valley, and steps should be initiated in this direction.

It is for the first time in the trouble-torn history of Jammu and Kashmir when  such a resolution was adopted by the Assembly . The militancy had erupted in late 1989 and the migration had started the same year, but it picked up in early 1990 when the militants and Islamic extremists  waged a war against all thoe who stood for India.
