‘ Pigeons for cats’
Separatists too have jumped onto the bandwagon to hit out at Mehbooba for what they said ‘ defaming’ Kashmiris to “please her masters”.
“We reject and condemn her statement. She is defaming Kashmiris and trying to please her masters in Delhi and RSS. We have always said there is no threat to Kashmiri Pandits from Kashmiris. If they have any threat, it is from the 10 lakh security force personnel deployed here... like the killings of Sikhs in Chattisinghpora village ( in March 2000),” said Ayaz Akbar, spokesman of hardline Hurriyat Conference.
Migrant Kashmiri Pandits asked the CM to spell out who are the cats and who are the pigeons. “She should spell out who is the cat and who is the pigeon? Am I a pigeon? If she is saying separate colonies will be made for Kashmiri Pandits, does that infer that I am a pigeon. Is she addressing Pandits after 26 years as pigeons?” asked Vinod Pandit, chairman, All Parties Migrants Coordination Committee, an apex body of migrant Kashmiri Pandits.
