Grave injustice done to Kashmiri Community Living in Poonch : Dilshad Qadri


Mendhar: Social Activist Dilshad Qadri in a statement said that people of Kashmiri community living in District Poonch denied the benefit of PSP reservation they are residing in District Poonch from centuries and only speak pahari.

He Said “Making an amendment to the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation Rules, a notification has been issued by the Social Welfare department which grants 4 per cent reservation to Pahari-speaking people. It is significant to note that the circular has added to Rule 21 subsection (ix) clause (a) and (b) which read,

(a) “A person claiming the benefit under the Pahari Speaking People Category must be a member of the Pahari Clan, Community or Tribe having Distinct Cultural, Ethnic and Linguistic identity.

(b) He/She must be speaking Pahari language and his/her mother tongue must be Pahari.”

He Further Said” Kashmiris of Poonch and Rajouri are part and par­cel of the Pa­hari com­mu­nity and Pa­hari is their mother tongue.”

The J & K gov­ern­ment of the Union Ter­ri­tory of Kash­mir must con­sti­tute a com­mit­tee to look into the whole range of is­sues re­lat­ing to the Pa­hari lan­guage and the peo­ple who ad­here to it. Pa­hari is spo­ken by Mus­lims (including Kashmiri), Sikhs, Hin­dus and Chris­tians liv­ing in Jammu and Kash­mir and it is grossly un­fair to leave out any sec­tion. he added
