Jammu and Kashmir Government passed the resolution for the return of the Kashmiri Pundits and open the way for their rehabilitation. But the action of Government is looking politically motivated rather the sincere efforts for the rehabilitation of the Pundits.
I am suspicion on the action of BJP Government and I am questioning with the Government on the timing of the resolution, especially when election is due in several States of India. BJP is the political party it will try to get the political benefit of the resolution. But mere passing resolution is not enough important is the safety of minorities in war turn state. Whether Kashmiri Pundits feel comfortable in the environment with full of Army, and would like to return in such environment.
Resolution passed by the BJP Government is just like the announcement of demonization made by the King Modi without taking proper care, arrangement and provide the infrastructure to the public.
Here I would certainly point out the violence spreading across valley after May 2014. Do Kashmiri Pundits feel themselves safe or would they return on the shadow of Guns of Army for their safety all the time.
BJP Government has done nothing to restore peace in the valley rather violence increased drastically after BJP regains power. In such circumstances mere passing resolution or announcement to providing homes to the displaced minority community or Kashmiri Pundits is not enough . But it is important to ensure them safety and provide them the violence free environment. Environment where they can move freely even without Army escort.
Indian Army is killing Kashmiri civilian in the name of Terrorism, every single day one or two civilians are killing. Would it possible for the displaced Pundits return back in such an environment?
Rehabilitation of displaced Kashmiri Hindus and the recent passage of resolution by the Legislative Assembly for their return to the Valley has evoked little enthusiasm among Pandits, but it is not enough without safety and until peace restore in the valley. Thinking about the return of Kashmir Pundits in valley is like the demonetisation without peace is like difficulties faced by the public afterwards.
