Srinagar: Hurriyat (G) Chairman, Syed Ali Geelani Friday said that they will welcome return of migrant Pandits to Valley; however any separate colony for their settlement was unacceptable.
While reacting to the resolution adopted in state assembly, for their rehabilitation, Geelani said it was political gimmick adding, We wont allow such colonies and will oppose as already stated by Hurriyat.
Geelani said that resolution passed by administration today is incomplete until and unless 15 Lakh Kashmiris who were forced to migrate from valley in the year 1947, 1965 and 1971, are called back to Kashmir.
They are part of our society, while referring to Pundits, said Geelani Sahab and we have always asked them to return and we will welcome if they are willing to settle within us and in our society, however we will resent and decision about separate colonies will be opposed by one & all. (PTK)
