Following the death of a 45-year-old in Pulwama, the KPSS has called for the replacement of the Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor.

SRINAGAR: On Sunday, a 45-year-old man was killed in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district. On Monday, an organisation of Kashmiri Pandits living in the Valley called the Kashmiri Pandit Sangharsh Samiti (KPSS) asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to do something to protect the Pandits.

The group also asked the Centre to remove lieutenant governor Manoj Sinha. It also asked the Centre to “start a brutal operation against the militants and their helpers to protect the lives of innocent Kashmiri Pandits and other religious minorities who live in Kashmir Valley.”

The organisation released the harsh statement after terrorists killed Sanjay Sharma on Sunday while he was walking to a local market in Pulwama. In a statement he made right after the targeted killing, LG Manoj Sinha called it a “heinous terrorist attack” and said that the government “has given the security forces free rein to deal with the terrorists.”

“KPSS most humbly, with folded hands, request the Hon’ble Prime Minister and Hon’ble Home Minister to rest their agendas and self-conceit and take the issue seriously and replace the current Lt. Governor immediately for letting the Kashmiri Pandits be killed by the militants for some vested agenda and vendetta to malign the ruling political party at the national and international level,” KPSS said in a statement.

In its statement, the KPSS also asked the central government to stop experimenting “with the situation in Kashmir and putting the lives of Kashmiri Pandits and other religious minorities living in Kashmir Valley at risk.” It also said that the Kashmir situation had worsened for Kashmiri Pandits and Hindus living in Kashmir Valley after Article 370 was taken away in August 2019.
