‘ Pi­geons for cats’

DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
