Panun Kashmir

Panun Kashmir (meaning "Our Own Kashmir") is the name for the demanded state in the Valley of Kashmir for the Kashmiri Pandits (Hindus). Evicted from their traditional homeland and considering themselves the "native" inhabitants, they are afraid of the eventuality of Kashmir breaking free from the Indian control and want to secure Panun Kashmir as their homeland within the confines of India. That "homeland" envisions the territory inhabited presently by the huge Muslim majority (95%), so they are very careful not to call it a "Hindu Homeland" and promise to have it as the multicultural entity, which is rather hard to believe.

The links provided by Wikipedia can shine more light on the controversial subject for those interested:
