Somewhere in Jammu-Kashmir....

Twenty seven years after most of the Kashmiri Pandits left the Valley, the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly passed a resolution to ensure the return of migrants to their homeland. Former J-K chief minister and opposition leader Omar Abdullah tabled the resolution and the PDP-BJP government supported it. The resolution was passed unanimously. “Today, it has been 27 years since they left the Valley,“ said Abdullah referring to January 19, 1990, when most of the Kashmiri Pandits left the Valley after militancy broke out.

The National Conference leader appealed to all legislators to rise above political beliefs and join hands in passing the resolution so that Kashmiri Pandits, Sikhs and Muslims who left Kashmir due to the turmoil can come back to their home and be resettled.
