"If the government does not act on its promises made to us and start a final and fruitful dialogue on six-point charter of demands, we will be forced to go for fast-unto-death," APMCC and KPSS said in a joint statement after the protest. The charter of demands include re-drafting and passing of the pending Kashmir Temples and Shrines Bill in the state assembly and a probe into the alleged temple and shrines land encroachment in Kashmir.
They also demanded the government to initiate a dialogue with Pakistan for facilitating visits to Shardha Peeth Temple in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, establishment of Shardha Peeth University in the state, one-time compensation for over-age Kashmiri Hindu youth living outside the Valley and special employment package for Hindus living in the Valley. The protestors demanded minority status for the community and removal of nomenclature like migrants or non-migrants from official communication.
All Parties Migrants Co-ordination Committee (APMCC) chairman Vinod Pandit regretted that the government was only making “false promises” and warned of intensifying protests in case it continued to “cold shoulder its charter of demands”. The APMCC has been asking for passage of the pending Kashmir Temples and Shrines Bill, probe into cases of encroachments of temples/shrines in the Valley, dialogue with Pakistan for facilitating visit to Shardha Peeth in Pakistan occupied Kashmir, establishment of Sharda Peeth University in the state, one-time compensation for over-aged migrant Kashmiri Hindu youth and special employment package for non-migrant Hindus of the Valley. Pandit, who had earlier twice sat on hunger strike in support of these demands, said the next fast unto death would begin on August 17. http://www.tribuneindia.com/2014/20140605/j&k.htm#6
