Smt Sarala Taploo, wife of the veteran RSS worker in Kashmir Late Shri Tika Lal Taploo, who was murdered by Jihadis, also graced the function.
Shri Tarun Vijay demanded rejection of the second flag for Kashmir , discontinuing the practice of its display along with the national flag Tricolour. He also demanded the formation of a Hindu Shrine Board in the valley to protect the remaining Hindu temples and reconstruct/repair the destroyed temples, which number more than seven hundred. He said that recently Kashmiri pandits under the leadership of Shri Vinod Pandita had sat on hunger strike in Jammu to demand a shrine board for temples. Thousands of acre land belonging to Hindu temples has been encroached upon by dubious people but the state government has not taken any action against the encroachers. Shri K.N. Sahani gave vivid details of the accession and the traumatic incidents following the Pakistani atatck in 1947. Shri OP Kohli raised the questions whether the so called Hindu Muslim unity in the state has been a reality ever and why there were no voices in support of the Hindus by valley Muslims. Shri Mahendra Pande also expressed the anguish of the persecuted minority of the state. Shri TK Razdan praised the grit and principled stand of Maharaja Hari Singh and lamented that history has not done justice to his memory. Maharaja was exiled from the state by Pt Nehru govt. to Bombay, from where he never returned to Kashmir, for the 'crime' of merging J&K with India , he said. He accused Pt Nehru to have played in the hands of Sheikh Abdullah and Lord Mountbatten and thus jeopardizing the J&K state's complete merger with rest of india. Here are some pictures of the occasion.
