Even as the Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party are embroiled in a tussle over the movie ‘The Kashmir Files’, the Congress has accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP of “politicizing Kashmiri scholars” and “dividing the valley”. .
He has raised a private member’s bill to rehabilitate Kashmiri scholars.
Called the Kashmiri Pandits (Asylum, Rehabilitation, Rehabilitation and Rehabilitation) Bill, it seeks to create social, political and economic conditions that are conducive to an environment of security and dignity for all resident Kashmiri Pandits living in the camps or willing to return and rehabilitate. .
The Bill proposes that the Government shall, within two months from the date of enactment of this Act, take appropriate measures which may include granting minority status to Kashmiri Pandits under the provisions of Section 2 20 (c) of the National Minorities Commission, 1992 and social, political and To provide them with all positive assurances to ensure economic rehabilitation.
It recommended that Kashmiri scholars be declared “victims of genocide” and that their official naming be changed to “internally displaced persons”.
The bill, a copy of which is available to news18.com, has been transferred to his personal powers and it is up to the chairman of the House to allow it to be negotiated.
Interestingly, the bill made a point that the BJP made – “Congress governments have done nothing to make scholars feel safe in the state”.
“Since the 1990s, our family has been saddened by what has happened to Kashmiri scholars in the Valley. In fact, the MP was the second state after Maharashtra to reserve seats in medical, engineering and other faculties for Kashmiri scholars. 32 years later, there are signs of justice. The bill seeks to address issues affecting scholars. “
Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, in his assembly address, attacked the Prime Minister and the BJP for spending too much time promoting the film and asked them to use the money to rehabilitate the pundits instead.
The Center is watching the elections in Jammu and Kashmir, the restrictions are in full swing. The BJP wants to enter the region proud of its huge Muslim population by reaching out to its traditional Hindu vote bank.
Meanwhile, the Congress has fallen into waterlogging. While it does not want to abandon its position on the “politicization of film”, it does not have the capacity to publicly oppose or oppose his bill for fear of misleading the debate.
For now, silence seems to be the safest option.
