The displaced Kashmiri Pandit community has asked Hurriyat Conference moderate faction chairman Mirwaiz Umer Farooq to help restore the land, temples and properties taken from them when they were driven out of the Kashmir Valley.

The gesture would also help "rebuild the bonds of trust and faith between two communities", All Camps Coordination Committee leader Desh Rattan Pandit told reporters in Jammu on Wednesday.

The Hurriyat leader has initiated some steps for return of displaced Kashmiri Pandits to the Valley and held talks with their representatives in this regard.

Pandit said, "We have urged the Mirwaiz to help our community to remove the encroachments of houses, lands and temples in the Valley."

The Hurriyat chief should "give a call to the people of the Valley to move out of the properties of the Kashmiri Pandits and help in reconstructions of damaged temples", he said.

Pandit said he recently led a delegation to meet the Mirwaiz, who had promised helping them in this connection.
