Open Lies About Peaceful Amarnath Yatra...

Over last several weeks, Kashmiri leaders of all hues - Sajjad Lone, Yasin Malik, Mehbooba Mufti, Omar and Shabbir Shah or Umar Farooq, have been daily lying to the people on every channels - CNN-IBN, NDTV, Times Now... so brazenly claiming that not a single Yatri has been touched. They want us to believe that the Kashmiri agitation is secular and they have no objection to the yatra.

But unfortunately, the Barka's and Rajdeep's don't ever intend to talk the facts either. After all you don't get to claim your TRPs - asking uncomfortable questions to separatists or Muslim leaders...

What is most frustrating however is the blind trust these media gurus place in the word of any terrorists or separatist leader from the valley. On one such show on CNN-IBN this week, when Dr Jitendra Singh of SAYSS (Jammu) tried to mention these about these attacks on yatris - Rajdeep turned to another panelist - Muzaffar Baig to validate the facts "Baig Saab - Is this true?" - who obviously used his expertize in doublespeak to deny any such incident...

Of course, Rajdeep couldn't trust a common citizen of Jammu - because afterall he is a Hindu. A separatist leader from valley however can not be speaking a lie...
Wah... this is the strong fourth pillar of Indian democracy...

But for the ordinary reader,... if you want to know the truth, here are just some snippets...

July 24, 2008

...Five persons including four children and a woman were killed, while 25 others, mostly non local workers and Amarnath Cave Shrine returnee pilgrims were wounded...

At least 35 persons including four paramilitary central reserve police force (CRPF) troopers and two cops, were wounded in a powerful hand-grenade explosion in the main bus stand at Banihal town situated on the Jammu Srinagar highway...marnath Cave Shrine-bound pilgrims use the same highway to reach the base camps at Pahalgam and at Baltel.

July 20, 2008

One tourist was killed and five other persons wounded in a grenade explosion in the north Kashmir's Gulmarg mountain resort on Sunday afternoon.

Fifteeen Amarnath piligrims were injured in a grenade explosion at Pahalgam, the base camp of the Amarnath Yatra, on Saturday afternoon, officials said.

station Pahalgam where a ¡langar¢ was organized.

30 July, 2002

..............two people have been killed and another three wounded in a suspected militant attack on Hindu pilgrims.The incident happened when a grenade was thrown at a taxi south of Srinagar on its way to the Amarnath cave shrine.


August 1, 2000

There have been several much bigger attacks in past... A simple google search - which is free to use - would have helped Rajdeep or Barkha's to learn about many other such attacks in the past.

Terrorists massacre Yatris in 2000

Terrorists prevent Yatris from registering for Yatra

Unfortunately, the internet didn't have a better presence in the earlier 1990's...

And those... who still dont believe this face of the so-called Kashmi..Well there's more...Mosque's are being rapidly constructed at the sites otherwise meant to be used for use by Yatris... read more...
