Srinagar, May 16 (from PTI News) For the first time in 20 years, a ‘Hawan’ was organised at the historical Vicharnag Temple near here by a group of Kashmiri Pandits who sought to revive their 5000-year old culture by restoring ancient temples in the valley.
Hundreds of devotees from various parts of the country participated in the ‘havan’ which was solemnised by M L Dhar from New Delhi along with other priests, Chairman of All Parties Migrant Coordination Committee (APMCC) Vinod Pandit told reporters.
Vicharnag is considered to be an important place for religious activities and today’s havan is considered to be a step towards its revival as a meeting place for the community in future”, Pandit said.
Rise of militancy in the valley triggered a mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley in the 1990s.

For this news some others outside Kashmir begin to think it as a beginning of a new era.
Through internet one of my respected friend Ramakrishna Chitrapu (email@example.com) commented : ” It is good beginning..I am sure it would be the starting point of the revival. The country’s culture and samskruthi are being systematically destroyed by the pseudo secularists and people in the payt roll of the Vatican. If it was pakistan that is the responsible for the present situation in Kashmir.. unfortunately it is the secular government which is responsible for what is happening in AP. The sanctum sanctorum of Hindu Culture and religion is being abused for all activities and many of them anti-Hindu.”……
But actually, it is not a good beginning. It is a new starting of the double-standard-ness of Abdullah Family.
By giving money to the press and media, these culprits want to highlight the matter of rehabilitation and re-honor of uprooted Kashmiri Hindu People.
But the real situation is quite contradictory.
One havan in a temple within the high security does not mean the freedom of Hindus in Kashmir.
The Hindus of Kashmir are being offered into the fire of Islamic arson.
Two months ago, a report came into the headlines that the Muslim neighbours trying hard to recover a Hindu cremation ground from the grip of a Muslim market builders in a Kashmir village. The situation there have not been changed for an inch till date. That illegally snatched Hindu Cremation ground is still not recovered. But media highlighted the so-called good wishes of Kashmiri Muslim. Kashmiri Muslims are wicked to the back-bone. They are now protesting the 8% reservation for SC/ST Hindus in Kashmir. But they want 15% reservation of Muslims all over India. What a satanic strategy !!
The present Govt. of J&K headed by notorious Abdullah family member is now imposing Rs. 25000/- from the Hindu Yatri Langar Sevaks for the ensuing Amarnath Yatra as Jijiah Tax.
The Govt. sponsored Havan in historical Vicharnag Temple is nothing but a hypocrisy of (Ommar) Abdullah Government.
The imposition of Jijiah Tax of Rs.25000/- from each unit/member of Amarnath Tirtha Yatra Langar Seva Samity is the real Islamic face of present rulers in Kashmir. These Yatra Langar Seva Samity Committees give fooding, lodging, medical and essential amenities facilities to the Amarnath Yatris (pilgrimages) free of cost.
We should critically analyze the situation of Kashmir and Bharatvarsha.
- In India Hindus are compelled to give Tritha Kar (Pilgrimage Jijiah Tax) in several places.
- In Gangasagar Hindus are forced to pay thirtha kar.
- This year in Haridwar Kumbha Mela 2010, the Railway Department took extra mela fare from Hindus.
- The pro-Pakistan Kashmir Govt. is now contemplating the Jijiah Tax of Rs.25000/- each from Amarnath Tirtha Yatra Langar Seva Samitys.
- PROTEST VEHEMENTLY TO THE PRESIDENT, PRIME MINISTER, HOME MINISTER OF INDIA AND CHIEF MINISTER, HOME MINISTER OF KASHMIR IN WRITTEN, BY MAIL OR OVER PHONE.
