Raina in a statement said that APSCC discussed all the important issues with the Committee members and urged upon them to extend minority status to Sikh of Jammu and Kashmir.

He said that the Committee gave patient hearing to the delegation and assured that all these issues would be taken up with the Home Ministry of India.

APSCC told Committee that it is the job of Home Ministry to grant minority status to the Sikhs of Kashmir. “Despite all odds the Sikhs did not migrate. We were threatened to leave the Kashmir and yet we stayed here. Our brethren were killed in cold blood in Mehjoor Nagar and Chattisingpora but no action was taken against the killers who roam freely till this day,” Raina told Committee members.

APSCC demanded that Punjabi should be added to the curriculum in Central University of Kashmir.

The DRP Standing Committee is in Jammu and Kashmir to know about the welfare of migrants and minorities of the State.

The Committee visited Jammu on Tuesday.
