Conclusion of a fact-finding report ‘Unabated Genocide of Kashmiri Pandits’
New Delhi – The conclusion of a fact-finding report ‘Unabated Genocide of Kashmiri Pandits’ stated that ‘the former Governments of India were in complete denial of the genocide of Kashmiri Pandits in Jammu and Kashmir, and the Kashmiri Pandit community continues to be sacrificial lambs on the altar of Kashmiryat and secularism.’ The report is based on the life of the Hindu minority in Kashmir post-abrogation of Article 370 and after targeted killings since the start of 2020. A three-member fact-finding committee of Rahul Kaul, Amit Raina and Vitthal Chaudhary was formed by a few leading Kashmiri Hindu organisations.
1. “Political parties, including the leaders responsible for ‘Ghazwa-e-Hind’ being enacted in the Valley continue to enjoy patronage of the State. The prime example being the facilities and security being provided to political leaders like Mehbooba Mufti, Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah, Sajad Lone, Altaf Bukhari, among many others,” it said.
2. The report also states that almost zero conviction and the reluctance of the judiciary and executive to punish the perpetrators of these horrendous crimes further emboldens the jihadi elements in the Valley.
3. The denial of the genocide of Hindus in Kashmir has not only been destructive to Hindus of Kashmir but has also led to spillover of jihad into the rest of India. The expansion of Islamist ideologies is taking place along the length and breadth of India. Demographic assaults are happening in numerous places across India, the report added.
