Bhopal, April 27: Dr. John Dayal, National President, All India Catholic Union, in a letter to Ghulam Nabi Azad, the Chief minister of the State of Jammu and Kashmir, has urged him to ensure relief for Kashmiri converts to Christianity who are refugees of violence and terrorism in the State. Dr. Dayal, who released the letter through a Press release and distributed it to scribes via e-mail, has written the letter on the eve of the multi-group talks in New Delhi on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir. The letter says: "I write to bring to your attention the terrible plight of a small group of citizens of the State of Jammu and Kashmir whose suffering for the past many years has been ignored by local officials and political authorities as well as by the State government". He pointed out that there are six families of Catholics who had converted from Pandit or Muslim families. They have faced a triple crisis - persecution from Hindus, persecution from Muslims and Persecution from the State. The letter further said: "I understand that every Kashmiri Pandit Private employee is entitled to the receipt of cash relief now raised to Rs. 4000/- per month. It even includes top ranking lawyers and businessmen but it has been denied to the Christian refugees. Dr. Dayal has appealed Azad to urgently look into matter and ensure that these families get the relief and resettlement support from the government as given to others who are deemed victims of the violent developments in the valley over the years.
