Srinagar: Commemorating 25 years of their migration, a group of Kashmiri Pandits staged a symbolic protest here Monday, urging the central and state governments to issue a white paper roadmapping their return to the Kashmir valley.

"We are holding a bigger protest at Jantar Mantar in Delhi to highlight our problems. Since we belong to Kashmir which is our homeland, we decided to hold a symbolic protest here also," Vinod Pandit said.

The chairman of the all parties migrant coordination committee (APMCC), told reporters: "It was on this day in 1990 that a forced exodus of Kashmiri Pandits began."

Pandit was accompanied by a dozen activists in the protest.

Monday's protest was held to commemorate 25 years of Pandits' mass migration from Kashmir valley in 1990 when separatist violence forced thousands of these people to abandon their homes.
