JAMMU: Jammu and Kashmir government today admitted in the State Assembly that 170 temples had been damaged in the militancy-related incidents in Kashmir valley in past 20 years.

Replying to a question from Jugal Kishore of BJP, Minister for Revenue, Relief and Rehabilitation Raman Bhalla said in written reply that as many as 170 temples had been damaged during past two decades of militancy in Kashmir valley.

He further said there were 430 temples in the valley before the migration of Kashmiri pandits (KPs) in wake of eruption of terrorism in 1989.

Bhalla said 90 temples have also been renovated in the valley for which Rs 33 lakh have been spent.

The ex-gratia relief is provided for renovation of temples which suffered damage as result of militancy related incidents, he said.

The district administration and police authorities ensure that religious places and temples are protected, the minister said.

“The Government has exposed to protect temples as it has admitted that 170 temples have been damaged. The temples were subjected to attacks, bomb blasts etc during militancy,” Kishore said.

On the issue, All Party Migrant Coordination Committee President Vinod Pandit said, “Cultural and religious identity of KPs has been vandalised in valley. The government should issue a white paper on damage of temples, shrines of KPs and land encroachments.

    Non-else than a counter strategy will stop this jihad. Time for action. That is why I fore-warn of the WW III in very near future. Interestingly, this war will be fought on a very unique agenda than the earlier ones. A Religion which is supposed to unite the people, will be the cause of the destruction this time.
