[From India's The Tribune] Srinagar: Demanding a CBI probe into the “illegal sale” of the historic Vaital Bhairav temple, the All Parties Migrants’ Coordination Committee (APMCC) organised a protest against Dharmarth Trust at Rainawari in Srinagar today.

 

Members of the APMCC and some local Muslims gathered near the Vaital Bhairav temple at Motiyar in Rainawari and raised slogans against Dharmarth Trust.

Chairman, APMCC, Vinod Pandit alleged that Dharmarth Trust was selling the Vaital Bhairav temple land in connivance with land mafia that would damage the “Kashmiriyat” and the heritage of the Kashmiri Pandits in the Valley.

He also appealed to the civil society to support their cause. “Even during the Pathan rule, the Vaital Bhairav temple was safe, but it is ironical that under the Omar-led regime, Dharmarth Trust has indulged in open loot of temples in the state,” Vinod Pandit added.

APMCC leader Ashiq Hussain Dar demanded a CBI probe into the whole affair and accused the government of only raising “hollow slogans” in the name of rehabilitation of the Kashmiri Pandits.

Vinod said they would hold a massive demonstration at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on April 8 to protest the sale of the Vaital Bhairav temple.
