    Farooq Abdullah demands probe into Kashmiri Pandits' exodus; blames then-Guv Jagmohan

    In a massive statement, former Jammu-Kashmir CM Farooq Abdullah, on Sunday, demanded a probe by retired Supreme Court judges into the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley in early 1990s. Addressing a webinar hosted by Jammu-based Epilogue News Network, Abdullah said that 'it was not Kashmiri Muslims who threw them out', blaming former Governor Jagmohan for the exodus - alleging that he "took them away" on the false promise of ensuring their return within three months. He maintained that 'Kashmir would never be complete till Hindu brethren come back and live there'.

    He added, " We (National Conference) always believe that Kashmir is never going to be complete unless the Hindu brethren come back and live in peace with all of us". When asked if he would support a genocide bill demanding a separate homeland for the migrants, he said he would have to go into the details of the bill first.

    The bill floated by Kashmiri Pandit organisation - Panun Kashmir, demands including permanent rehabilitation based on principles of non-refoulment. Among other things, the bill recommends the creation of a Board and a Commission to look into the aspects of cultural genocide and all the criminal aspects which include investigation, the procedure of trial, fixing of responsibility for the crime of genocide, punishment to the perpetrators and compensation to the victims.

    What was the 1990 Kashmiri Pandits' exodus?

    On 19 January 1990, Kashmiri Pandits were driven out of the Valley when a message was issued by terrorists over loudspeakers from mosques and on the streets - 'Convert to Islam, leave the land or die'. Amid massive panic, over 350,000 Pandits have escaped from the Valley in the next few months - March and April, while hundreds of Pandits were tortured, killed and raped. According to several Kashmiri scholars, the wave of exodus continued till 2000, leaving several Kashmiri Pandits languishing in refugee settlements, unable to return to their ancestral land.

    Incidentally, Governor Jagmohan had arrived in Srinagar on January 19, 1990, to take charge. Several Kashmiri Muslims believe that he encouraged the Pandits to leave the Valley, while Hindus contest this view. While the Kashmiri Pandits rejoiced the revocation of Article 370 and Article 35 A done by the Centre, they are yet to return back. Currently, Kashmir is under COVID lockdown, with 4G internet services snapped and several politicians in house arrest.

    Kashmiri pundits have as much right to justice as anybody else. Delhi is incapable and/ or unwilling to dispense justice to any kashmiri, Hindu or Muslim. Rule of Kashmir from Islamabad, or a decentralised government under the protection of Islamabad, or complete independence remain the only viable solutions for the kashmiri people that will deliver justice to them and their cause.

    Islamabad has delivered peace and prosperity to the Kashmir under its jurisdiction for 73 years. Delhi has not done this for the regions under its control - both during federal rule and during direct control.

    Delhi's attempts at ethnic, religious or ethnoreligious demographic manipulation began in 1947 with the Dogra-led attacks on Muslims in Jammu. In the late 20th century, Delhi manipulated the kashmiri pundits as part of this ongoing strategy when it suited them. Genuine resistance forces attacked both nominal Muslims and nominal Hindus who colluded with Delhi because of their collusion (proven or perceived), not because of their faith.

    Delhi now needs to enforce an information blackout, a military blockade, and a soldier:civ ratio of around 1:7 simply to maintain "peace" in occupied Kashmir.

    The ethnoreligious manipulation continues with: dissolution of all viable forms of representative government by and for kashmiris, arbitrary detention of elected officials and civil societal figures/leadership, abrogation of 370 last year, and ordinances this year permitting non-natives the rights to settle on land in Kashmir, whether that land is sold legitimately, confiscated under legally debatable circumstances, or otherwise acquired. Jobs and land that were once protected will no longer be so. It remains to be seen whether these ordinances will be implemented to disenfranchise all kashmiris or just kashmiri Muslims. Either way, it constitutes and amounts to ethnoreligious discrimination and demographic manipulation or "cleansing". Either the kashmiri Muslims will lose out on their enshrined autonomy vis-a-vis constitutional rights since the moment of accession to Hindustan, or both kashmiri Muslims and kashmiri Hindus will lose out on the same.

    By all reasonable and measurable accounts, Delhi has failed Kashmir and Kashmiris.

    This is all there is to it.

    Delhi needs to move on and busy itself elsewhere. The dream is over. Kashmir is already lost, except in the cabbaged brains of some miserable Gujarati bhakts who believe in some fantasised and fetishised version of "akhand Bharat".

    Farooq Abdullah calls for probe into exodus of Kashmiri Pandits

    Replying to questions during a webinar, Abdullah said he was of the firm belief that Kashmir is incomplete without Kashmiri Pandits and that he would support any mechanism to bring them back honourably.

    Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah on Sunday demanded a probe by retired Supreme Court judges into the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley in early 1990s.

    Replying to questions during a webinar, Abdullah said he was of the firm belief that Kashmir is incomplete without Kashmiri Pandits and that he would support any mechanism to bring them back honourably.

    Nearly 60,000 Kashmiri Pandit families are registered as migrants after the onset of militancy in the Kashmir Valley in early 1990s.

    Abdullah, a member of Lok Sabha and president of the National Conference, chose to blame then former Governor Jagmohan for the exodus and said that he “took them away” on the false promise of ensuring their return within three months.

    During the webinar hosted by Jammu-based Epilogue News Network on the theme, “Discerning old order delineating new order-a year after neutralization of Article 370 and abrogation of Article 35 A”, Abdullah was asked whether he would support a genocide bill being floated by the Panun Kashmir, a Kashmiri Pandit organisation demanding a separate homeland for the migrants. He said he would have to go into the details of the bill first.

    Abdullah, a three-time chief minister, said, “A sincere and honest judge of Supreme Court, retired judge of Supreme Court, a team of judges…let them investigate and come out with their report. It will clear many minds around the globe, among the younger Kashmiri Pandits, that it was not Kashmiri Muslims who threw them out. There are still many Kashmiri Pandits who never left and they are living here.”

    The National Conference leader narrated many instances where Muslims had stood by the Pandit community since 1947 and said “do you think we were happy when they (Kashmiri Pandits) were taken away,” he said, adding “we always believe that Kashmir is never going to be complete unless the Hindu brethren come back and live in peace with all of us”.

    Abdullah said he would continue to uphold his party’s ideology of treating all the people, irrespective of their religious belief, equally.

    “My father never believed in two-nation theory. He never believed that Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, Buddhists and all other religions are different. We believe all are the children of Adam and Eve. Everybody’s needs are the same and so he worked hard for unity. We will continue to stand on the same path and to my last breath, I will work for the unity of all,” he said.

    In December last year, the Panun Kashmir adopted the Panun Kashmir Prevention of Genocide and Atrocities Bill, highlighting its various demands including permanent rehabilitation based on principles of non-refoulement.

    Among other things, the bill recommends creation of a Board and a Commission to look into the aspects of cultural genocide and all the criminal aspects which include investigation, procedure of trial, fixing of responsibility for the crime of genocide, punishment to the perpetrators and compensation to the victims.

    How cleverly they twist the narrative and even trap these pathetic so called kahsmiri leadership into their trap.
    Few thousand hindu settlers, migrants feom bihar and u.p settled in kashmir to do low level works such as gutter cleaning, garbage picking, or servants etc.
    Who left or not. Which is history.
    Now you can kill thousands of kashmiris.
    And then the course of discussion is kahsmjr pandits who are non native hindus who might have returned or not etc.
    Kashmir always has 98 percent muslim population so does kpk, balochistan, gilgit baltistan. Punjab prepartiton has 85 percent muslim Population but instead of division according to percentage it was divided half and half. It should nt be. Partiton would not be blooddy if whole punjab was given to pakistan.
    And sindh has 93 percebt muslim population. And due to non partiton of the state the minorities thrive thrive there and still are 7 to 9 percent.
    This is totally baseless lie.
    This bastard should be questioning the degradation of kahsmiris or issuance of domicilies. But they do nit even issued a word. Cowards. They would be the ones to loose.
    Even that mahbooba stick and yet not bowed down to modi.
    But this father and son duo did with no campaign or anything

    What do you get by saying exactly the opposite of what's happening? Peace of mind? Way of coping with reality?

    Not sorry that my post bothers you.

    If you wish to test my words, ask Kashmiris in IoK and in AZK if they agree or disagree.

    It's quite simple - either Delhi has won the hearts and minds of kashmiris, or it hasn't. This much should be obvious, even to confused individuals such as your good self.

    My dear friend.
    My ancesstors may be hindu or buddhist 2000 years ago. They were something else before that.
    All muslims in subcontinent are local muslims. Except for partition no migration ever took place. Their ancesstors may be buddhist, hindus, stone worshippers, fire worshippers, sun worshippers etc.
    What is the point. I mean a white person who adopts and follow hinduism must not because his dna is not from indian subcontinent??

    Please tell me which study links Dna with religion? That people of certain dna can have certain religion.
    If i have similar dna that proves another one of your theory wrong that i am an invader.

    You say that muslims are invaders.
    Then you say muslims have same dna.
    I mean wtf. How can an invader has a similar dna as you.
    Whats the logic behind this.
    In islam, someone who reverts back to islam is more special then a muslim born into islamic family because he found his faith instead of being born into it.
    Didnt understand this bhakt knowledge.

    So if everyone must revert back to 2000 or 3000 year old ancesstors dna then???
    Why not revert back to the very first man on the earth then? What is the limit which century to we stop??
    Besides india has never been a entity as it is today. Usually people dont marry inter states and pakistan states except punjab dont share culture, toungue, cloths in short anything with you.
    Did you see any one of dravidian south indians race in pakistan???
