Terrible message from Kashmir

By J.G. Arora


As per Frederick Douglass, "The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." India's consistent policy of appeasement and of surrendering before its tormentors has resulted in genocide and eviction of Hindus from Kashmir.

It is tragic that Kashmir, the land of Maharishi Kashyap, Lalitaditya, Kota Rani, Abhinavagupta and Kalhan; the cradle of Vedic heritage; and which was Hindu land with no Muslim presence, and which defeated Muslim invaders heroically for many centuries has been made a Hinduless region.

And to compound Hindu humiliation and disgrace, allotment of 40 hectares of forest land in May 2008 to Shri Amarnath Shrine Board to provide temporary shelter for pilgrims visiting Amarnath shrine in Kashmir has been cancelled by the government on July 1, 2008 due to violent protests from Kashmiri Muslims who celebrated the cancellation as a "great victory".

Kashmiri Muslim leaders have opposed the allotment of land to Amarnath Shrine Board on the absurd ground that it is a conspiracy to reduce the Muslims to a minority in Kashmir. Stiff opposition to the said land allotment by Muslim majority Kashmir sends the perverse message that in secular India, Hindu majority areas belong to everyone but Muslim majority areas belong to Muslims only.

Amarnath cave, the abode of Lord Shiva, is one of the oldest and most important Hindu pilgrimage centres. It is situated at an altitude of about 4000 metres in Kashmir. It is mentioned in ancient texts; and dates back to thousands of years.

Sinister and self-defeating
Article 370 of Indian Constitution negates the very concept of one united India. This Article is responsible for genocide and eviction of Hindus from Kashmir, as also for Muslim separatism.

During 1980s and 1990s, Pakistan-sponsored terrorists killed thousands of Hindus in Kashmir, and drove out several lakhs of terrorised Hindus from Kashmir; and made Kashmir a Hinduless region. Successive governments have done nothing to rehabilitate Hindus in Kashmir; and to punish their tormentors.
