It is disappointing to note that Pakistani secret agencies have resorted to their old tactics and have started harassing those Kashmiris who attended a Kashmir conference in New Delhi. These people were allowed to proceed to New Delhi and allowed back after taking part in this peaceful conference, and many of us thought that Pakistani agencies have changed their heart and attitude, said Dr Shabir Choudhry, Spokesman of International Kashmir Alliance.

Actor Aamir Khan lends support to KPs thanks to influence from Anupam Kher, Ashok Pandit, and Mahesh Bhatt.

There is no stopping Aamir Khan. After lending his voice to the Narmada dam controversy, the actor is now ready to take up the plight of the Kashmiri pandits.

Aamir will visit refugee camps in Kashmir, meet displaced pandits and talk to the state and central governments for their rehabilitation.

Confirming his stand, Aamir said, "This educated community has suddenly found itself on the streets. I will appeal to the people of Kashmir to support me in this cause and give back the pandits their homes."

Aamir will lead a delegation comprising celebrities such as Anupam Kher, Mahesh Bhatt and Ashok Pandit to Kashmir. Aamir, set to go on a weeklong holiday with his family, said, "I have not fixed a date for visiting refugee camps, but I will do it soon."

The actor decided to support the pandits' cause after Ashoke appealed to him on TV. Said Ashok, "Aamir promised to accompany us to Kashmir and hold talks with the state."

Kher lamented the pandits didn't have a role in the Kashmir talks. He said, "The government is open to dialogue with Hurriyat, but we Kashmiri pandits have no representation. Aamir's assistance is required to put our concerns across."

Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt said. "It feels great that Aamir, a Muslim, is concerned about Hindu Kashmiri pandits.

In the 1990s, nearly four lakh pandits were driven out of the Valley by terrorists. The ultras set their houses on fire, raped women, hanged children and seized their property.
