"Native Refugees" - Unknown to HT...

Hindustan Times brought out this article on the "World Refugee Day"

Native is foreign to them- Hindustan Times
Like all Indians and rest of Indian Media, they are concerned with refugees of all over the world and sub-continent - but easily forgot about over half-million refugees - who unfortunately happen to be Indians.
Over 500,000 Kashmiri Pandits have been living in exile - away from their homes in Kashmir - thanks to the over-zealous Jihad going on in Kashmir - and also thanks to the total apathy of Indian media and govt.
No one looses a minute to moan and lament about refugees from Afghanistan or those during Gujrat riots. But when it comes to Kashmiri Pandits - secularism is at threat - for talking about the plight of a Hindu lot isn't the right thing to be seen doing in India.
