Even though the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government is soon completing one year, Kashmiri Pandits are still waiting for homecoming, said Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) chief Praveen Togadia.

Addressing the gathering at a VHP function here on Sunday, Togadia said central and state government should prepare an action plan to rehabilitate the Kashmiri Pandits. "However, government should only plan, and leave the decision on where to reside to Kashmiri Pandits," he said.

Terming the separatists as Pakistan's agents, he also sought a white paper from the Centre on the atrocities on Kashmiri Pandits in 1990. He added that the VHP would celebrate its golden jubilee only after a grand Ram temple is constructed in Ayodhya.

Further claiming that majority of the Hindu population was not safe, Togadia said 'Ghar Wapsi' programme was still on and aimed at re-converting members of other religious groups into Hinduism.

Emphasising on the importance of social media, Togadia gave a clarion call to the gathering to share his views on Twitter and Facebook if they agreed with his thoughts. He also asked people to share the Hindu Helpline number on social networking sites.
