Kashmiri Pandits Hold Candlelight March Protest in Delhi Against Targeted Killings of Hindus and Sikhs in Kashmir

NEW DELHI: Kashmir Pandits, on Saturday held a candlelight protest march at the Jantar Mantar and Connaught Place in Delhi, protesting against the recent targeting killings of Hindus and Sikhs in Kashmir. The protesters had gathered at Jantar Mantar where they began the agitation and later ended with a candle march across the inner circle of the Connaught Place in the national capital.

The protesters said that the fresh wave of terror attacks are targeted and meant to create a wedge between communities in Kashmir. They said that the terrorists want to convey a message to the Kashmiri Hindus that they will not be welcomed back in the valley.

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal also protested against the same and burnt effigies to register their anguish over the concerted campaign of murder in Kashmir. Demonstrations were held across 3000 sites and it was vowed that Islamic Terrorism will be buried in India.

There has been a spate of targeted attacks on the Kashmiri non-Muslim civilians in the valley recently. On October 7, two teachers, a Hindu and a Sikh, were sorted out on basis of their religions in a school and then shot by the Islamic terrorists while the Muslim teachers were allowed to go.
