JAMMU: A senior minister in the Mehbooba Mufti government said, Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave their homes and belongings in the valley due to an environment of fear.
Minister for Disaster Management, Relief, Rehabilitation and Reconstruction, Javed Mustafa Mir told the Legislative Council,”I want to say from the core of my heart and put it on the record in the house that they (Kashmiri Hindus) were forced to leave due to a situation (of fear and insecurity).”



He added even Muslims were targetted in an environment of fear and insecurity witnessed by the state that time.
He said their (KPs) rehabilitation process needs a different look, and if we can not approach them with humanity, the policy of rehabilitation will be a failure.
