Srinagar, February 29: Senior leader of the moderate faction of the Hurriyat Conference, Nayeem Ahmad Khan, today appealed to all Kashmiri migrants, particularly Pandits, who had left the valley since 1947, to return to Kashmir.

Khan, who, along with another key leader of the conglomerate Syed Saleem Geelani and others, was interacting with Kashmiri Pandit delegations, including the Jammu Kashmir Migrant Forum, J and K Hindu Muslim Sikh Ittehad, and All Migrant Camps Coordination Committee, at Jammu, said that from the outset the Hurriyat had been yearning that all those, be they Muslim or non-Muslim, who had left the valley from 1947, should return and live along with Kashmiri residents, Kashmir Observer reported today.

The Hurriyat delegation assured people in the Jammu region that the alliance did not believe in communal politics, and apprised them about the programme of the conglomerate, stressing on the need of the Pandits to return.

“This struggle is not for any community but for the freedom of all,” Khan said.

He said that minorities, including the Kashmiri Pandits, were a part of Kashmiri society, and that Kashmiris had always shown a brotherhood of all communities.

“We want to take the other community into confidence. Kashmir is like a garden in which every flower has the right to blossom,” he said.
