The Panun Kashmir organization of displaced pandits has condemned the order of the Education Department to transfer women teachers belonging to the community to Kashmir on their promotion. The organization lashed out at the state government for issuing the order to transfer women teachers to the Valley knowing that conditions are not favourable and most of them have no place to live there. The decision, hence, is being termed discriminatory.
The organization said that the government is barely considering the safety and security of Pandits and the Education Department has adopted an averse attitude towards the employees, said Panun Kashmir chairman Ajay Chrungoo.
Convenor Panun Kashmir, Agnishekhar said that the transfer order was a very calculated move to break the Pandit families who are still deprived of justice. The state government is just trying to coerce the community into moving back to Kashmir by subjecting our teachers to join services in such a hostile and communally fragile environment.
