JAMMU: A Kashmiri Pandit organisation today said actor Anupam Kher is an ambassador of the community and has been actively highlighting their pain following their exodus triggered by terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.

Condemning reports that Kher has "not done anything" for the community, Roots in Kashmir (RIK) said the actor had also exposed the separatists of Kashmir at the national and international forum.

"Kher, who is an ambassador of the community, has brought to fore the pain of the community due to exodus trigger by terrorism in Kashmir, and exposed the separatists of Kashmir at the national and international level," RIK said in a release.

President of Kashmiri Pandit Sangharsh Samiti was quoted as saying in a report that Kher does not deserve it (Rajya Sabha seat) at all. "What has he done for the community? There are several other stalwarts who have worked hard for the cause of Kashmiri Pandit community".

Terming the news report as "malicious", RIK said "the very fact that no prominent Kashmiri Pandit leader or organisation was contacted but a few fringe elements who have absolutely no say or have done no work for the community have been quoted in the news report proves that it was a fake news report".
