Coinciding with Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf's visit to India, an organisation of Kashmiri Pandits in an open letter to the visiting dignitary has stressed on the need to control jihadi elements and protect the values of 'Kasmiriyat.'
"We, the victims of genocide, seek your cooperation in establishing a humane society in Kashmir by controlling the jihadi elements who recently even opposed the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service," the All India Kashmir Samaj said in the letter.

This, it said, was important to "reinstall the cherished values of Kashmiriyat so that all faiths, castes and creeds can live and co-exist as honourable citizens of this great country."
"That now the process of uniting the divided people has been set in motion, it is surprising that the fate of Kashmiri Pandits, the worst victims of genocide, has never caught your attention," the Kashmiri organisation said, adding that a
secular Kashmir was important for having communal amity in the sub-continent.
