After over three decades of exodus fate of KPs still hangs in balance
Kashmiri Pandits observe 31st Holocaust Day
1/19/2021 10:50:08 PM

JAMMU, Jan 19: To get some respite from the mental agony and pain of leaving their motherland behind against their wish, Kashmiri Pandits have been waiting endlessly to see the dawn of rehabilitation in their native places in the valley which they were forced to leave followed by an undeclared war by armed insurgents against them at the behest of our neighbouring country way back in 1989-90.
The day of January 19, 1990 still haunts lakhs of Kashmiri Pandits living in exile as it was on this fateful day that they were forced to take the route of migration from valley to Jammu and other parts of the country. The day is being remembered as the black day in the secular history of Jammu and Kashmir and also observed as Holocaust Day by the Kashmiri Pandits when they were forced to leave their homes and hearths for being labeled as Indians and had no place to live in the valley by the inimical forces and anti-nationals who desired to separate erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir now Union Territory from India at the behest of Pakistan sponsored terrorists. However, the microscopic community of Kashmiri Pandits faced the brunt of terrorism at the core of their heart and lost several precious lives to the bullets of militants and those others who could save themselves have had to leave their homes and hearths and became migrants in their own state since then they have been living in exile in Jammu and other parts of the country.
Much water has been since then flown out of the Jhelum but the condition of exiled community could not be changed by the coming and going governments at centre as well as state despite their agenda of rehabilitation has been making rounds at the corridors of power time and time again according to the convenience of national and regional political parties said a social activist Sunil Pandita while talking to EarlyTimes here today, adding even our pity demands did not get any response from the government and what to talk about our burning issues,he added.
Various organizations of Kashmiri Pandit migrants including Jagti Tenement Committee led by its president Shadi Lal Pandita, All India Migrant Camp Coordination Committee led by its chairman Desh Rattan and others like Panun Kashmir and so on have been observing January 19 as Holocaust Day of Kashmiri Pandits in Jammu and other parts of the country chanting the same rant but nothing has changed so far because no government is paying any heed to their pleas. This type of attitude has not gone well with the community and today each and every Kashmiri Pandit feels devastated, ruined and neglected. Before the community goes into complete extinction the government and other relevant forums must take a review of their mental agony and pain which they have been facing for more than three decades now.
