After journalists, Kashmiri Pandits receive threat from terror outfit

After the threats against journalists, it is Kashmiri Pandits who are now receiving threats.

The Resistance Front (TRF), said to be a shadow organisation of the proscribed Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT),  have threatened the Valley’s Hindus to leave the region.

The TRF has released a list of Kashmiri Hindus saying that non-locals and Kashmiri Hindus were taking away jobs and land in Kashmir.

In fact, the list of Kashmiri Hindus TRF plans to target is the same one that the government had decided to employ under a prime minister’s scheme.

This has been a source of concern for security agencies. The disclosure of names is being seen as a big breach of security as questions are being raised as to how TRF got access to this confidential document.

Twenty four people have been killed in Kashmir over the last year, the victims include Kashmiri Pandits and migrant labourers.

The Jammu and Kashmir police has taken cognizance of the threat and begun an investigation.
