Jammu: Accusing the BJP of making Kashmiri Pandits “scapegoats” in the ongoing unrest to “realise” its Kashmir dream, a Kashmiri Pandit organisation on Tuesday said the party was “punishing” the community for its lineage to Jawaharlal Nehru.
“BJP is punishing Kashmiri Pandits for their lineage to Jawaharlal Nehru and using them as baits, scapegoats to realise the so-called Kashmir dream without understanding the ground realities of Kashmir,” said President of Citizens for Peace and Harmony (CFPH), King Bharati.
He said the attitude of the BJP towards Kashmiri Pandits indicates that the party “wants to punish innocent Kashmiri Pandits” for the “blunders” committed by Nehru simply because he was a Kashmiri Pandit.
“Had it not been so the BJP would have come to the rescue of the agitating Kashmiri Pandit employees who were attacked in Kashmir,” Bharati said.
He said that it seems that BJP leadership was “hell-bent” upon “sacrificing” Kashmiri Pandits in Kashmir as they feel Nehru had “ditched” India at a crucial moment and “punishing” Kashmiri Pandits at this time would be “satisfying” for the party.
“Kashmiri Pandits are threatened on daily basis by posters and threat letters,” he claimed.
