Srinagar: Former Minister and Member All India Congress Committee Abdul Gani Vakil today expressed his serious concern over the Home Ministers statement in parliament in which he said Jammu and Kashmir Government has a proposal of earmarking 400 kanals of land for rehabilitating displaced Kashmiri Pandits.
According to a statement, he said the whole Kashmir valley belongs to Kashmiri people and religion has no relevance in the matter.
He said that it is disastrous plan because the proposed move will not only widen the gulf amongst centuries old communities here but will also make them vulnerable to nefarious designs of anti national elements.
Vakil said it will be unwise to set the precedent of establishing separate colonies on religious ground because in future more demands of this nature can arise from other quarters also and this state will face a dangerous partition and consequently its existence will be at stake.
