to Plight of Kashmiri Hindu Pandits
|by Dr. Subhash Kapila|
Never in global history there is another instance where people in their own country were forced out by religious and ethnic cleansing inflicted by a minority. This is the true history of over 400,000 Kashmiri Hindu Pandits who during the period 1989-1991 were forced out from their ancestral homes in the Kashmir Valley Islamic fundamentalists using terror and persecution as a brutalising weapon.
The major aim of this this religious cleansing by Kashmiri Muslims, basically those spearheading Pakistan’s separatist agenda in Kashmir Valley was to alter the demographic ratios in the Kashmir Valley.
The Indian nation-state was and is a mute spectator to this exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Kashmir Valley. The Indian nation-state had a vast and extensive security presence and apparatus in the whole of J &K State and also in the Kashmir Valley to stop the exodus of persecuted Kashmiri Hindu Pandits. Why was the helplessness so acute? What were the political reasons that held back the Indian Government’s hand? This has never been satisfactorily explained.
