Kashmiri Pandits come in Kangana Ranaut’s support
The Reconciliation, Relief and Rehabilitation of Migrant Kashmiri Pandits condemn the BMC action against Bollywood actress Ms Kangana Ranaut. We extend our support to her in this hour of concern when her house in Mumbai has been bulldozed in her absence.
It is disheartening that the administration in the Maharashtra government acted in such haste. This action, no doubt stems from political vendetta and highhandedness given the fact that every year so many houses/buildings collapse and people die in Mumbai alone and the government is caught sleeping. Bulldozing her house when she was away and without adequate notice period is unbecoming of a government. The action is a demonstration of political might and harassment.
Since the Maharashtra government has ill-treated her, we the Kashmiri Pandits request her to live with our community as our daughter.
Ms Kangana Ranaut has said that she can empathise with the Kashmiri Pandit refugees who also lost their homes and hearth in Kashmir 30 years ago. She has said she can understand the pain of being uprooted.
Ms Ranaut is the first Bollywood actor who has spoken about our plight for the first time in 30 years. We are thankful to her for feeling and speaking about the plight of Kashmiri Pandits, who have been suffering for the past three decades.
