has been working from past three years in and around Purkhoo
Camp in Jammu. The terrorism and the ongoing military in Kashmir
valley has uprooted the entire minority i.e. Kashmir Hindus
from the valley. As a result of this the entire Hindu Community
had to migrate leaving behind their homes and hearths in Kashmir.
The well to do Sections managed their Survival elsewhere in
the country but a large portion of the community who were
Orchardist, Small land owners, Small businessman in the valley
were thrown on the roads. They lost their shelter, means of
production i.e. the land holdings, business establishments
and all other assets.
About 17km away from Jammu city, Purkhoo Camp is the largest
Camp inhabited by displaced Kashmiri people who are the victims
of Terrorism in Kashmir. There are 1600 families in Purkhoo
Camp with a total population of about 10,000. Another Camp
of Kashmiri migrant, namely Mishriwala Camp is only one and
a half Km away from the Purkhoo on the same road. There are
200 families comprising of about 5000 people. The people in
these Camps live in one room hutments which are poorly ventilated,
without sanitation and other civic amenities.
In the Surrounding villages of Purkhoo Camp a large number
of displaced Kashmiri people are living after their migration
from the valley. These include Patoli Brahamana, Domana, Nagbani,
Bernai, Bantalab, Akalpora, Mutti and other smaller villagers.
Besides, Multi Camp which is yet another Camp of Kashmiri
migrants also in the same area. Thus there is a large segment
of displaced Kashmiri people living in the project after they
were hit by the terrorist Golence in Kashmir valley.
