A Delhi-based lawyer has written to the Chief Justice of India NV Ramana to find out about the “targeted killings” of minorities in Kashmir and to instruct the center to take steps to ensure their safety.
In his letter on Saturday, attorney Vineet Jindal pointed out that seven civilians, including members of the Sikh and Hindu communities, were killed in Kashmir within five days. “The targeted killings of pharmacist Makhan Lal Bindroo, Supinder Kaur, Sikh Principal of Government Boys Higher Secondary School in Sangam Eidgah, Srinagar District, and Deepak Chand, a Hindu teacher from the same school, leave a feeling of agony, fear and insecurity among them the Hindu and Sikh minorities living in Kashmir, ”it said.
Quoted from a news article, the letter said: “A scared teacher didn’t go to work. He says his school told him to stay away for a week because of the recent attacks on minorities, Sikhs and Hindus. “
Jindal’s letter also alleged that many government employees who had found work at J&K under the Prime Minister’s Special Employment Program for Kashmiri migrants had returned for fear of their lives.
Jindal asked the court to treat his communication as a PIL letter and asked the center for instructions “to provide adequate security to the Hindu and Sikh minorities in Kashmir, to set up a special delegated unit to structure and administer a system to ensure security for minority groups ”. to investigate in Kashmir the recent murder of Hindu and Sikh minorities by the National Security Agency ”and“ Rs 1 crore in compensation for the families of Hindu and Sikh victims and granting a family member a government job ”.
