APMCC pays tributes to Nadimarg martyrs
All Parties Migrants Coordination Committee (APMCC) today paid rich tributes to the martyrs of March 23, 2003 infamous Nadimarg massacre in which Pakistani sponsored terrorists killed 24 innocent Kashmiri Pandits including 11 men, 11 women and 2 infants.
APMCC, which recently created history by visiting the original spot of massacre on Januray 19, 2016 to observe the holocasut day has announced to built a martyrs memorial at the village by April end this year.

According to a release issued by King Bharati, a senior journalist and national spokesperson APMCC, the organization held a memorial meeting in Jammu today where the sacrifices of Kashmiri Pandits were discussed and rich tributes paid to the Nadimarg massacre victims who were martyred by armed terrorists on this day in 2003.

The meeting was held under the chairmanship of Vinod Pandit, Chairman APMCC where a two minute silence was observed for the peace to the departed souls.

Speaking on the occasion Vinod Pandit said that APMCC was all set to fulfill its promise of building a martyrs memorial at Nadimarg, which would be completed by April end this year.

King Bharati while speaking on the occasion asked the community to remember the martyrs of the community who sacrificed their lives for the nation but never compromised on nationalism despite hard times.

Bharati said that the day had a special relevance in these days where pseudo secularists have started a campaign of selective condemnation of incidents of violence conveniently forgetting the ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri Pandits in Valley.

He blamed the weak policies of the successive central governments for the miseries of Kashmiri Pandits saying Kashmiri Pandits would have to come forward and fight their own battle instead of waiting for the government to do the job.

Speaking on the occasion advocate Arun Kandroo, General Secretary APMCC said that Pak sponsored militancy was responsible for forced exodus of the community as massacres like that of Wandhama in 1998 where 26 Kashmiri Pandits were killed, Nadimarg where 24 Kashmiri Pandits were killed on March 23, 2003, Prankot area of Udhampur District where 26 Hindus were killed in April 2003, Chattisinghpora in 2000 where 36 people were killed and Kaluchak attack in which 31 people including 19 family members of army personnel were killed was a conspiracy of ethnic cleansing of Hindus, adding such a memorial by APMCC would be a befitting tribute for their sacrifice.

APMCC leaders who participated in the memorial meeting include Yoginder Singh Jamwal,Ravinder Kaul, Vinod Tickoo, Rakesh Pandita, Ravinder Kumar Kaul, Arun Ji Ambardar, Virender Pandita, Sunil Kaul, Sanjive Kaul, Rakesh Pandit, Sanjay Dhar, Amit Raina, Akhil Koul, Amit Raina besides representatives from all walks of life.

It may be recalled that Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave Kashmir Valley during the intervening night of January 19-20, 1990, when the Pakistani sponsored terrorists started a killing spree of Kashmir Pandits besides threatening the community to leave or face bullets through loud speakers and newspaper advertisements.
