[The story of Kashmiri Pandits, an ethnic group who have become refuges in their own land, is not-only one of the tear-jerking ones in independent India but also a mistreated one by the so-called secular government of the country].

I think, most of the Indians don’t know they have a holocaust day to celebrate. For those who don’t know, January 19 is the holocaust day of Indians.
23 years back, it was on that day your brothers, lakhs of Kashmiri Pandits were evacuated from their home land, Kashmir Valley, by the Pakistan sponsored terrorists.
Now, Kashmiri Pandits have completed the 23rd year of their forced exile. The story of Kashmiri Pandits, an ethnic group who have become refuges in their own land, is not-only one of the tear-jerking ones in independent India but also a mistreated one by the so-called secular government of the country.
We have heard about human rights violations confronted the Jews from Adolf Hitler, human rights violations in Palestine, human rights violations by the Lord Resistance Army of Uganda, violations in many countries such as Sri Lanka, Iran, Brazil, China…
When a communal riot broke out in Gujarat (India) in 2002 as an upshot of the killing of 59 Hindu Saints in Sabarmati Express (Godhra train carnage), then all human rights organizations across the globe made use of this incident to affront India in front of the world.
But they never speak on the genocide, the ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri Pandits from the Kashmir valley; they have a culpable silence on the human rights violations executing by the terrorists tutored by Pakistan.
After the end of 1989, over four lakh Kashmiri Pandits, living in Muslim best part area of the Kashmir, were ungenerously hollowed out of the valley by the Islamic terrorists.
They have been forced to live the life of exiles in their own country, outside their homeland, by unleashing an organized campaign of terror, murder, loot and arson.
Genocide of Kashmiri Pandits has reached at its zenith with Pak terrorism succeeding in cleansing the valley of this ancient ethno-religious Kashmiri Pandits community.
With the completion of 23rd year of their forced exile, this peace loving, culturally affluent community with a history of more than 5000 years is fighting a harsh battle to save itself from becoming extinct as a distinct race and culture in the midst of pseudo-secular politicians.
