Shrines Temples Bill

PNBMT’s appeal to legislators on passage of Shrines, Temples Bill

Pt Prem Nath Bhat Memorial Trust (PNBMT) in a meeting here today appealed the legislators of all the parties to support their demand and move the Kashmiri Hindu Shrines and Religious Places Protection and Management Bill and get it passed in the current session of State Legislature.

It has also appealed to the Government to bring an official bill in the budget session and also pass the same, since leaders of all the parties have assured the community of their support to the bill.

The KP community has been demanding since long time the constitution of statutory body to protect, maintain and manage their religious places in Kashmir, on the pattern of Auqaf Board for the Muslim religious property and Gurduwara Prabandak Board and Committees for the protection and management of Sikh Gurdawaras. The passage of the bill will be a biggest confidence building measure for the migrated KP community to return to the valley and settle there, with a sense of security and dignity, it was observed in the meeting.

The Trust which has been assigned the responsibility by all the KP organizations as a nodal agency for spearheading the movement for introduction and passage of the bill in the State legislature, has with the consultation of all other organizations of the community, chalked out the program to hold mass dharna on Monday March 12, outside Jammu Press Club, to highlight their concern for the protection of their religious places in Kashmir.

The religious places of Kashmiri Hindus in Kashmir are being vandalized, encroached uponand sold by some unscrupulous elements, after the forced mass exodus ofthe community from Kashmir 22 years back.
