If you still don’t know the truth – urge you to spare just 18 minutes to watch “…And the world remained Silent”.
For years, the world media has continued to make leaders out of terrorists – giving them mileage and sound bytes. The terrorists turned leaders of Kashmiri muslims – all the people of Hurriyat, whether Mirwaiz Moulvi Farooq, Shabir Shah, Prof Abdul Gani , Yassin Malik or Lone, or those in power have made ‘news byte’ worthy claims that they are keen on seeing Kashmiri Pandits return to their homeland – that they Muslims of the valley feel there is something amiss in the vale. The media always lapped it up – making leaders out of crooks.
The Kashmiri Pandits – the aboriginals of the valley just wanted to visit the holy site of Martand temple, Mattan in the Kashmir valley on August 6th 2006 (Shakula Dwadishi of month of Shravan) to perform a maha-shraadh for more than 50,000 Kashmiri Pandits who died since 1990 in exile. The community simply wished to perform a pilgrimage to the holy temple and perform a communion last rites for the departed. A pilgrimage with ashes, flowers and tears in eyes – not with guns or grenades in back-packs.
However, the real picture of what’s on the mind of all those in the valley came out. Harkat-ul-Jehadi-al-Islami (HUJI), an Islamist outfit active in Kashmir valley (and headquartered in Pakistan) openly issued a warning to the Kashmiri Pandits – forbidding them from setting even a foot back in the valley, threatening with dire consequences. (See letter below)
And one would think – the Kashmiriyat of those leaders would have come to life – and they would have come out protesting The government, the majority community and even these so-caller leaders of Kashmiriyat didn’t even speak a word against it – giving a silent approval to the continued ethnic cleansing of Hindu’s from the valley.
Next time, one of the Kashmiri Muslims tells me that the war in the valley is not about religion, I may feel like puking…

The traitors of "Jang-e-Aazadi" i.e, Kashmiri Pandits who have been part and parcel of "Muslim
Our organization stands by the joint pronouncement dated 22.7.2005 of Al-farin, Al-Nasreen, Farzandani Millat and Save Kashmir Movement, which made compulsory for the Pandits to seek pardon, for all the omissions and commissions against the Kashmiri Muslims and also to beg pardon for the heinous crimes they have committed, which also directed Pandits to participate actively in Jehad failing which they will not be allowed to come back.
Our organization in its congregation has decided to defeat the sinister designs of the migrant Pandits, who are going to perform a Maha Shraadh at Mattan near
Migrant Pandits are being warned that their welfare rests in begging for pardons, accept their heinous crimes and terms and conditions of our organizations, till they do it the doors to the valley are shut for them.
And of course, as usual - Indian national media missed this happening.
After all it’s not important to the nation to know… It’s more important to know what Shah Rukh Khan’s next role is...
