Jammu: Panun Kashmir, a Kashmiri Pandit body, on Tuesday renewed its demand for carving out a ‘separate homeland’ for the community with union territory status within Kashmir, PTI reported.

The report quoting the outfit’s chairman Ajay Chrungoo said the organization observed the 30th ‘homeland day’ in Jammu to mark the adoption of Margdarshan resolution in 1991.

Charungoo said that the effect of ‘ignoring the killings in Kashmir which forced the KP community to flee can be seen in other states’.

Meanwhile, lawyer Tito Ganju said that paper genocide has been rampant in JK right since the first census and the consequent delimitation that took place after independence, the report said.

The report quotes Ganju further as he said that the current crisis is a direct fall out of the ‘fudged census’ which gave a ‘hegemonic clout’ to Kashmir valley.
