Hindu European Kashmir Forum (UK)

IEKF Press Release on the Statement of Syed Ali Shah Geelani's Addresson 2 July,2012 in Srinagar.

5th July 2012 [UK]

The Indo-European Kashmir Forum (IEKF) is shocked and appalled aboutthe recent statement made by the Chairman of the HurriyatConference,Syed Ali Shah Geelani,in Srinagar on 2 July,2012 .In hisaddress Geelani threatened mass agitation in the Kashmir Valley ifthe Government of India does not drop its plan of rehabilitating theKashmiri Pandits in the safe zones.

Since 1989 Kashmiri Pandits have been the victims of terrorism in theState of Jammu and Kashmir. Over 3000 ,00 KPs, the original,indigenouspeople of the Kashmir Valley have been forcibly driven out of theirhomes and now Geelani tells them where they can live and where theycan not live in their own homeland 5000-year old.

Kashmiri Pandits will not allow anyone to decide their fate or setconditions for their return to their homeland.They will return tolead a life of security,dignity and honour and settle in their homeland on their own terms.

The Indo-European Kashmir Forum remains concerned over Syed Ali ShahGeelani's statement as it promotes sectarianism and communal hatred.It strongly urges the Central and the State Governments to take aserious note of it and act now to reprimand appropriately leaderslike Geelani.

It further urges the Indian authorities to create a secure andconducive environment for the return of the KPs to their homeland.Itis the responsibility of the Prime Minister of India and the ChiefMinister of Jammu and Kashmir to protect and safeguard the homes,theland and the places of worship of the KPs. The Kashmiri Panditsshould be recognised as the most important stakeholders in anynegotiations regarding their resettlement in the Valley and should begiven adequate representation in the political and other institutionsof the Jammu and Kashmir State.

Editors Notes:- The Indo-European Kashmir Forum is the voice of thedisplaced Kashmiri Hindus in India and in the Valley.The Organizationwas founded in the late eighties with the support of the wider Indiancommunities.It continues to highlight the plight of the KashmiriHindus who have become of the victims of terrorism.The Forum alsoinvestigates violations of the human rights of the Kashmiri Hindus atthe hands of terrorist organizations.

On behalf of the Executive Members of the Indo-European Kashmir Forum.

History

 

A seed is sown

Hindu Youth UK (HYUK) was the bold shoot that emerged from an ideological seed, sown at a lecture hosted by the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies (OCHS). There was strong appreciation, by students, for the rich religious and cultural heritage of Hinduism, that this prestigious centre offered them. Exposed to the student’s experiences, community elders were moved and inspired. There was an overwhelming desire to create a forum that would allow this spirit of appreciation in Hindu heritage to be preserved, shared and grown.

 

The roots emerge …

Hindu Youth Festival 2001

Following the milestone OCHS forum, youth from across the UK were inspired into dynamic action, by the vision of the first event of its kind, dedicated to the celebration of Hinduism, by the youth. Under the guidance of inspired religious and community leaders, the youth went on to hold a nine day event, on a scale never previously undertaken. In the Summer of 2001, the first ever Hindu Youth Festival was hosted in London. The format was an unforgettable evening of activities staged to celebrate and appreciate the diversity and richness of the Hindu culture. This, coupled with daytime activities of a Mahavishnu Yagna and recital of the Bhagavat Katha by Bhaishri Rameshbhai Oza, injected into the youth, new found confidence and pride in the vision of Hindu Heritage.
The shoots emerge…

The success of the festival inspired the youth into action and full realisation of the critical importance of unity in action. Youth from various spiritual, cultural, educational and social backgrounds, united in the view that it was important for them to collaborate their experiences, creativity and resources. Thus the shoots of the seed emerged, in the formation of Hindu Youth UK.

 

The first stems…

Get Connected

The Hindu Youth Festival generated much interest across the UK. On the confidence of this success, HYUK went onto organise “Get Connected” events in 2002. “Get Connected” celebrated the Hindu faith by incorporating a unique combination of spirituality, culture and lifestyle all under one roof. The events took place across the country, with the first being hosted in Preston, then at the prestigious Alexandra Palace in London and the last at the Centenary Square in Birmingham. This was followed by a “Get Connected” festival, in Leicester, in 2004.

 

Forming of an official Organisation

Get Connected highlighted a need expressed by many individuals and organisations. It was strongly felt that HYUK should be an established and recognised entity, with which they can interact with more effectively. In recognition of this need, HYUK became an official organisation. We currently plan to soon to gain a not-for-profit charity status, for the organisation.
