Ref : - Loksabha Discussion on Kashmir Pandits yesterday.
Respected family members of this great holy Nation.
1. P. V. Narasimha Rao was the Prime minister and Congress was the ruling party.( when Kashmiri pandits were driven out of Kashmir by Kashmiri muslims )
2. Congress was the ruling party since 1947 to 1977. ( 30 years continuously ), 1980 to 1989.- ( 9 years ), 1991 to 1996. ( 5 years ) and 2004 to 2014.( 10 years ) - total 54 years.
3. The congress rule resulted in the sad story of Hindus in Kashmir
4. Brief history of the Events :
Ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri Hindus :
Induction of fear :
1. In July 1988, the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front began a separatist insurgency for independence of Kashmir from India.
2. The group targeted a Kashmiri Hindu for the first time on September 14, 1989, when they killed Pandit Tika Lal Taploo, an advocate and a prominent leader of BJP in Jammu & Kashmir in front of several eyewitnesses.
3. This instilled fear in the Kashmiri Pandit community especially as Taploo's killers were never caught.
4. The Pandits realised they weren't safe in the valley and could be targeted any time.
5. The JKLF and other Islamists went on to kill many other Kashmiri Hindus including many prominent ones.
6. On January 4, 1990, a local Urdu newspaper, Aftab, published a press release issued by Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, asking all Pandits to leave the Valley immediately.
7. Another local paper, Al Safa, repeats this expulsion order.
8. Explosive and inflammatory speeches being broadcast from the public address systems of the mosques became frequent.
Slogans threatening Kashmiri Hindus :
1. Several slogans on the road crowd and also from the public broadcasting system of Mosques were used for threatening.
(a). “Yahan kya chalega, Nizam-e- Mustafa”
(We want to be ruled under Shari’ah)
(b). “People’s League ka kya paigam, Fateh, Azadi aur Islam”
(“What is the message of People’s League? Victory, Freedom and Islam.”)
1. In order to undermine his political rival, the then Chief Minister of Jammu & Kashmir, Farooq Abdullah, Minister of Home Affairs Mufti Mohammad Sayeed convinced Prime Minister V.P. Singh to appoint Jagmohan as the governor of the state.
2. Abdullah resented Jagmohan who had been appointed as the governor earlier in April 1984 as well and had recommended Abdullah's dismissal to Rajiv Gandhi in July 1984.
3. Mufti was convinced that such a move will irritate Abdullah and make him quit.
4. Abdullah had earlier declared that he would resign if Jagmohan was made the Governor.
5. However, the Central government went ahead and appointed him as Governor on January 19, 1990.
6. In response, Abdullah resigned on the same day.
7. This led to utter chaos and Jagmohan could not reach Sri Nagar due to bad weather and had to stay at Jammu.
8. Lawlessness took over the valley and the crowd with slogans and guns started roaming around the streets.
1. News kept coming of violent incidents and those Hindus who survived the night saved their lives by traveling out of the valley and to other parts of the country.
2. Most of the Kashmiri Hindus left Kashmir and moved to other parts of the country.
1. The militancy in Kashmir had increased after the exodus.
2. The militants had targeted the properties of Kashmiri Pandits after their exodus.
1. Kashmiri Hindus continue to fight for their return to the valley and many of them live as refugees.
2. The exiled community had hoped to return after the situation improved.
3. They have not done so because the situation in the Valley remains unstable and they fear a risk to their lives. Most of them lost their properties after the exodus and many anre unable to go back and sell them.
4. In 2010, the Government of Jammu and Kashmir noted that 808 Pandit families, comprising 3,445 people, were still living in the Valley and that financial and other incentives put in place to encourage others to return there had been unsuccessful.
5. According to a J&K government report, 219 members of the community had been killed in the region between 1989 and 2004 but none thereafter.
6. The local organisation of pandits in Kashmir, Kashmir Pandit Sangharsh Samiti after carrying out a survey in 2008 and 2009, said that 399 Kashmiri Pandits were killed by insurgents from 1990 to 2011 with 75% of them being killed during the first year of the Kashmiri insurgency.
Recent Development :
1. Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi has promised to remove controversial Article 370 from constitution to remove special status to Kashmir and ensure all citizen of India have equal rights to go and settle in Kashmir.
2. But till December 2015 he had not mentioned any law amendment.
3. Article 370 has been considered a roadblock in the resettlement of Kashmiri Pandits as the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir does not allow those living in India outside Jammu and Kashmir to freely settle in the state and become it's citizens.
******Some experts do feel that Article 370 is different than the ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri Hindus and both should be dealt with separately. ????????
1. Where is the Secularism in Kashmir?
2. Where is the tolerance in Muslims towards other religions especially towards Hindus in Kashmir
3. Where was the Congress Government and its Secularism?
My view points :
1. Where there the muslims in Majority they want islamic rule, and have no tolerance with other communities ( as in Kashmir, part of India ).
2. Where the muslims in minority status, and others are tolerant and cooperating, the muslims start all sorts of demands and put pressure everywhere ( as in other parts of India) .
3. Where the muslims in minority, and others are strong, then they adjust with the main stream, and live silently. ( as in other parts of Democratic Nations in the world )
