Subject:
Intentional and intended harassment of Non-Migrant
Kashmiri Pandits – Kashmiri Hindus through biased, morally
corrupt and unruly Officers / Officials of DMRR&R
Department, by manipulating facts under deep-rooted
criminal conspiracy, for the reasons unknown to sabotage
the extension of PM’s Job package to left out Kashmiri
Pandits – Kashmiri Hindus living in Kashmir Valley.
Hon’ble / Esteemed Sir,
Before taking the extreme step of “Fast-Unto Death” for not
addressing the long pending genuine and legitimate demands mentioned in
this “Memorandum”, Kashmiri Pandit Sangarash Samiti, an organization of
Non-Migrant Kashmiri Pandits / Kashmiri Hindus living in Kashmir Valley,
through its representative body, submits as under:-
1. Extension of PM’s Job Package and apportionment of 500
posts / one job per family (preferably) criteria for 808 Non-
Migrant Kashmiri Pandit / Kashmiri Hindu Families.

a)
That implementation of the recommendation issued by the Ministry
of Home Affairs vide communication no. 12013/6/2014.KV dated
04.12.2015 read with recommendation no. 16030/05/2020-JK
dated 23.06.2020 supported vide Two Parliamentary Standing
Committees dated 13.02.2009 and 19.02.2014 and Hon’ble High
Court directions dated 31.05.2016 passed in OWP 1986/2013 titled
Kashmiri Pandit Sangarash Samiti and others Vs. Union of India
and others read with Judgment dated 14.02.2019 passed in OWP
2048/2017 titled Kashmiri Sikh Community and ors Vs. State of JK
and ors read with Hon’ble High Court Judgment dated 02.07.2019
passed in WP(C) 2266/2019 tiled Kashmiri Pandit Sangarash
Samiti and others Vs. State of J&K and others for apportionment of
500 posts done vides GDC-205/CM/2017 dated 03.10.2017 for
Non-Migrant Kashmiri Pandit / Kashmiri Hindu Community living in
Kashmir Valley and forward the same to the recruiting agency
under the Recruitment Rules 2009 (Jammu & Kashmir Kashmiri
Migrants (special Drive) Recruitment Rules, 2009) on the already
sorted out mode, as per qualification and residence with the then
Commissioner Secretary, DMRR&R described in the table mentioned
herein below :





That the issue stands already agitated number of times before the
Competent Authority but unfortunately cruel, unruly and morally
corrupt staff of Disaster Management for Relief, Rehabilitation and
Reconstruction is sitting on the issue for the reasons are best known
to them only.
b)
That process of recruitment be initiated by the concerned
department on priority basis because already almost three (04)
years are wasted after the Hon’ble High Court passed necessary
directions on 31.05.2016 with a request that the higher age be
relaxed in favour of those candidates who were eligible on the said
date i.e. 31.05.2016 for the posts so apportioned for Non-Migrant
Kashmiri Pandits / Kashmiri Hindus living in Kashmir Valley. That
the issue stands already agitated number of times before the
Competent Authority but unfortunately cruel, unruly and the morally
corrupt staff of Disaster Management for Relief, Rehabilitation and
Reconstruction is sitting on the issue for the reasons best known to
them only.
c)
That 500 posts so apportioned is requested should be as district
wise and qualification wise so that justice is to be done with the
persons who are well qualified as such the tentative description of
the district-wise and qualification-wise data as mentioned
hereinabove. That the issue stands already agitated number of
times before the Competent Authority but unfortunately cruel, unruly
and morally corrupt staff of Disaster Management for Relief,
Rehabilitation and Reconstruction is sitting on the issue for the
reasons are best known to them only.
d)
That it has come to fore that the some officers from local
administration is causing harassment and un-necessary
discrimination between the words Kashmiri Pandit and Kashmiri
Hindu. It is apt to mention here that every State Subject Hindu
permanently living in Kashmir Valley is a Kashmiri Pandit in
general and by virtue of “Gotra (Clan)” he or she is a Kashmiri
Brahmin or Khatri or Rajputs etc. As such, Divisional Commissioner,
Kashmir and Deputy Commissioner Concerned of Kashmir Valley be
directed to provide “Bonafide Certificate” which is mandatory under
SRO 425 dated 10.10.2017 whosoever applies for the same from
the Kashmiri Pandit / Kashmiri Hindu Community. That the issue
stands already agitated number of times before the Competent
Authority but the unfortunately cruel, unruly and morally corrupt
staff of Disaster Management for Relief, Rehabilitation and
Reconstruction is sitting on the issue for the reasons best known to
them only.
2. Providing of Accommodation to all deserving Non-Migrant
families
a)
That accommodation be provided to all the deserving families,
including the one who are facing social and religious isolations at
their native places, at the transit camps constructed at all the
district headquarters on priority basis to mitigate long pending
genuine grievance of the left out Community and also take stern
action against the erring officers/officials of the DMRR&R
Department to cause deliberate and intentional harassment and
mental agony to the Non-Migrant Kashmiri Pandits - Kashmiri
Hindus living in Kashmir Valley. That the Ministry of Home Affairs
intimated the applicant organization through communication bearing
no. 16030/3/2016-K-V dated 26.10.2016 under subject
“Extension of PM's Return and Rehabilitation Package for the
Kashmiri Pandits families who stayed back in Kashmir
valley-reg” that “Kashmiri Pandit families who stayed back in
Kashmir valley during militancy period are already being
provided various assistance by the State Govt. of J&K under
PM's Package-2008. These families are also eligible for the
benefits of the recently announced PM'S Package-2015 under
which 3000 additional jobs are to be provided to the
Kashmiri migrants in the State Govt. of J&K and 6000
transit accommodations are being constructed in the
Kashmir valley”. While as whenever a Non-Migrant Kashmiri
Pandit-Kashmiri Hindu family residing in Kashmir Valley, who
doesn’t have any sort of accommodation in Kashmir or he had to
leave his ancestral place due to militancy threats and is residing in
some other place in Kashmir Valley submits his / her application for
accommodation before DMRR&R, the application is rejected on the
ground that “the issue regarding providing of transit
accommodation to the families of non-migrant Kashmiri
Pandits living in Kashmir does not fall under the ambit of
this organization, because these families did not choose to
leave Kashmir Valley and also there are no instructions from
the Central Government to provide accommodation to the
Non-Migrant Kashmiri Pandits living in Kashmir Valley”.
That the issue stands already agitated number of times before the
Competent Authority but unfortunately cruel, unruly and morally
corrupt staff of Disaster Management for Relief, Rehabilitation and
Reconstruction is sitting on the issue for the reasons best known to
them only.
3.
Extension / providing of necessary financial assistance to the
808 Non-Migrant Kashmiri Pandit / Kashmiri Hindu families
living in Kashmir Valley
a)
That entire nation is facing, due to the spread of COVID-19 and to
provide respite from the situation Government of India has already
sanctioned a number of provisions and schemes to tackle the
situation and also to provide necessary financial assistance to the
deserving families, but Non-Migrant Kashmiri Pandits/Kashmiri
Hindu’s who are not part of any Government / Semi-Government
institutions are also facing the crunch caused due to the lockdown.
b)
That it is a known fact that entire Kashmiri Pandit / Kashmiri Hindu
Community who chose of leave Kashmir in 1990 are in one way or
another facilitated monthly based financial assistance, leaving
behind only 808 families, who chose to stay back in Kashmir Valley,
to live a starved and miserable life. This facts also stands
validated by the Two Parliamentary Standing Committees
reports dated 13.02.2009 and 19.02.2014.

c)
That the issue stands already submitted for redressal and
necessary action but till date nothing has been done in this regard
for the reasons better known to the administration only. The step-
motherly treatment towards aboriginal religiously minuscule
minority of Kashmir Valley is heartbreaking and non-consideration
of the genuine demands put a question mark on the intentions of the
persons who are at the helm of affairs. Extension of monthly
financial help to the 808 Non-Migrant Kashmiri Pandit / Kashmiri
Hindu families living in Kashmir Valley is need of the hour and
requires immediate action from your good offices.
4.
Protection, Preservation and Restoration of Temples and other
religious institutions belonging to the religious minority in Kashmir
Valley.
a)
That encroachments and illegal sale and purchase of the temple
properties in Kashmir Valley is at galore, though the Hon’ble High
Court has passed a number of directions in petition(s) OWP
610/2007 titled Sanjay K. Tickoo and others Vs. Union of India and
others, OWP 785/2008 Ghulam Nabi Khan and Another Vs. State of
J&K and others, CPOWP 572/2014 Sanjay K. Tickoo and others Vs.
Rajeev Mehrishi and others, CPOWP 217/2017 Sanjay K. Tickoo
and others Vs. Shri. Baseer Ahmad and others upheld by Hon’ble
Division Bench in LPAOW 180/2010 and LPAOW 36/2011 on the
issue, but the field officers / officials of the implementing agency(ies)
are not adhering to the same causing irreparable loss to the temple
endowment properties. In violation of the Hon’ble High Court
directions, Endowment Properties are still transferred by different
means using Subordinate Judiciary, Revenue Department and
Municipal Corporations. Even in broad daylight commercial
complexes and residential houses are being raised on the temple
endowment properties, it seems that the concerned authorities show
disregard to the Hon’ble High Court directions by putting them in the
dust bin and allowing the mafia to loot and rob our religious
identities for the reasons best known to them only, as such a direction be passed on the issue and a full-fledged inquiry be
initiated in the matter to book the guilty and restore back the temple
properties with protection and preservation. It may be apt to
mention here that previously communication no. 16017/6/2014-K.V
dated 17.03.2015 and 04.06.2015 Ministry of Home Affairs has
also extended cooperation to the local Government to implement the
directions but all in vain. Apart from that Hon’ble the Chief Justice,
High Court of Jammu and Kashmir vide order no. 230 dated
30.05.2019 have also intervened on the issue but the local
administration hand in glove with mafia are using all the means
and tactics to destroy the endowment properties belong to the
Kashmiri Pandits – Kashmiri Hindus in Kashmir Valley. A detailed
memorandum along with a list of temples located in District
Srinagar was also submitted before Worthy Chief Secretary on
24.09.2018 in Deputy Commissioner, Srinagar Office but till date no
actions stands taken in that also.
KPSS has a number of times already submitted above mentioned
requests for early disposal but we were made to go from pillar to post
and we were tossed liked a badminton shuttle from one table to another.
As such, if our grievances are not resolved within a stipulated time of 10
days, from the date of receiving this memorandum, then we will be forced
to go for “Fast-Unto Death” and also forced to “represent before United
Nations Office with a request for asylum in any other part of the world
where we will be also treated at par with humans”.


With regards.
Yours faithfully
(Sanjay K. Tickoo)
President, KPSS
