Kashmir Isn’t Political, But Religious Problem
There are many painful incidents that are often twisted and ignored to the extent of totally absolving the actual perpetrators of any wrongdoing.
One such incident, which has been twisted and ignored by powerful politicians and left-liberal intelligentsia, is the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits.
This story of exodus is one of the most brutal stories of hatred, mass violence, directed against a minority community in modern India.
Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad had blamed the then Governor Jagmohan for the exodus of thousands of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley.
He had said Prime Minister VP Singh was coerced by BJP to send Jagmohan as the Governor of the state to facilitate the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley.
By blaming Jagmohan, Azad tried to bail out Kashmiri Jihadis and their supporters, who were the reason for Kashmiri Pandits exodus from the valley.
He also tried to shift the blame on BJP, instead of Farooq Abdullah government in Jammu & Kashmir and the then central government, which helped Congress to protect their vote bank.
The fact of the matter is, Jaganmohan was not in Srinagar at the night of the mass exodus but was in Jammu.
Even if the left-liberal cabal blaming Jagmohan is accepted, why were the killings of Pandits continued after 1990 too? In 2003 as well, 23 Pandits were massacred in Nandimarg.
Human Rights’ Silence
The Human Rights activists, who accuse the Indian Army at a drop of a hat for carrying out brutality against Kashmiri Muslims, remained silent over the killings of Kashmiri Pandits.
Probably, the way BK Ganjoo was murdered at the hands of Islamic terrorists in Kashmir, does not fall into the Human Rights category of barbaric killing. Ganjoo, an engineer, was shot through the rice container, in which he was hiding, and his wife was made to eat the blood-soaked rice.
In yet another gruesome murder. Girija Tikoo was split in half with a mechanical saw after she was abducted and gang-raped, just because she was a Hindu.
Human Rights also painted Kashmir as a bastion of secularism, but in reality, it is a place where other religions are unacceptable and intolerant towards people with diverse views. Every attempt is made to eradicate Hinduism and other faiths from there.
The local newspapers too refused to carry statements of the Hindus against the killings.
It’s Not Political Problem, But Religious
The Congress, to efface the stigma of Jihadi Muslims, painted the Kashmiri Pandits exodus as a political problem, but it is religious in nature. They did it to cover the haivaniyat of the Jihadis who killed Hindus.
The same brand of politics is being played even today, which is witnessed in protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act. These ideologies do not wish minorities from the Islamic States of Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan to be granted citizenship in India.
It is in the nature of Radical Islam to not only oppress people of other religions but also deny them their due rights and privileges.
Despite these sufferings, the burden of upholding secularism is laid on the shoulders of Hindus. They are labeled fascists and Nazis when they retaliate against the killings by voting for a political party, which is making sincere efforts to bring normalcy in the valley.
On the contrary, the left-liberal eco-system never asks Muslims to adhere to secular values, even after their chanting of ‘Hinduon se Azadi’ and ‘La ilaha illallah’ slogans during anti-CAA protests. They accuse Hindus of bigotry if they object to such sloganeering.
It is surprising that the cult that the left-liberal cabal so vehemently defends and gives cover, is the same that sees them as kafirs. They hardly realise that what was Kashmiri Pandits’ past, could very well be their future.
