Kashmiri Pandits, the original inhabitants of Kashmir, have time and again been persecuted by the Muslim majority population of the region. Of the 1,60,000 – 1,70,000 Kashmiri Pandits living in the valley, most were forced to flee the region in in 1989-92 as a result of attacks carried out by violent Islamists.
Now it seems that the remaining Kashmiri Pandits too are having a harrowing time. As per a video put out by journalist Aditya Raj Kaul, a Kashmiri Pandit family living in Kulgam, Kashmir was attacked simply for lighting the customary lamps during Diwali.
In Kulgam District of Kashmir this Hindu Family lit up Diyas, lamps, and decorated their home with lights. But Kashmiri Muslims are still filled with all the hate for Hindus. A mob of Kashmiri Muslims came and started pelting stones on the house.
When the family asked what happened the Muslims said, “You can’t celebrate Hindu festivals here in Kashmir and if you want to celebrate leave Kashmir and stay in Jammu.
The family then called the security forces which wasted no time and gave all the necessary protection to the family but this should open the eyes of all the libtards who claim Kashmiri Muslims are not against Hindus and the fight in Kashmir is not religious. They should understand Kashmir was the first step towards Ghazwa-E-Hind.
The brutality of their ethnic cleansing can also be gauged by instances like the Nadimarg massacre where masked terrorists had massacred 24 Kashmiri Pandits including women and children. The cleansing was so thorough and ruthless that in 2016 there were just about 2,764 Kashmiri Hindus left in the valley.
the video circulated by a local news channel showed former district agriculture officer Avtar Krishan and his wife sitting on the main road and blocking the passage of vehicles by a wooden log. They accused three brothers living in their neighbourhood of pelting stones on the house to force them out of the village.
Pandit alleged that his house was attacked after he lit candles to celebrate Diwali on Thursday. “I have not migrated. I have stayed back in the valley and I’m living with dignity” he said, demanding protection from the state government.
The video also featured an elderly Kashmiri Pandit woman who accused the neighbours of harassment and causing damage to the boundary wall of her house.
