Sikhs Body Demands Reservation Of Seats For The Community In JK Assembly

SRINAGAR: All Gurudwara Prabandhak Sikh committees of Kashmir on Friday demanded for the reservation of two seats for the community in the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly.

Addressing a press conference, United Kashmiri Sikh Progressive Forum, said that the community welcomes the move to reserve two seats for Kashmiri Pandits but the minority Sikh community of Jammu and Kashmir should not be discriminated. “We have been left out in the process which is an injustice to the community.”

“We have met the Home Minister four times and he gave us assurances, but now we have been ignored,” the forum said. “Kashmiri Sikh community has always been at the forefront in extending all kinds of help and assistance, but we fail to understand why we are not being recognised.”

“The government should think about Kashmiri non-migrant Sikhs and should give us a reservation,” the UKSPF said, adding, “We demand two seats for Sikh community in the J&K Assembly.”kno
