January 19th., 1990 that announcement was made across all mosques in Kashmir through loudspeakers ,asking Kashmiri Pandits to leave the valley. They shouted “Asyi Gassyi Pakistan .. Batav Roch te Batnyav Saan” [ We want Pakistan ..Without Hindus but with their womenfolk ]. “Yahan Kya Chalega – Nizam E-Mustafa” [ Islamic rule would prevail ] , etc etc
Thousands of Kashmiri Pandits were subsequently killed and almost the entire Kashmiri Pandit population of 7,00,000 fled from valley,almost overnight.
A genocide followed by exodus of one of the most patriotic community happened.
January 19th., 2010 marked the 20th anniversary of that event. Kashmiri Pandits are living as refugees in their own country ,where they stand ignored and neglected. Read the article at REDIFF, click HERE
On this 20th anniversary of exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from Kashmir , the Indian media completely ignored them as well. Indian media is well known for their Psuedo secular policies as most of the people in media are known leftist supporters . For them it has been a fashion to speak about Gujarat and problems to Kashmiri muslims , however give prompt them to speak about Kashmiri Pandits and they would fume.
They have a dead conscience.
Here I take an opportunity to show what all they preferred to discuss on that particular day , and at the same time not even a word was discussed about Kashmiri Pandits.
What else to prove of how biased the Indian media is against Kashmiri Hindus . These screen shots have been taken from the twitter account of respective media channels and the celebrity journalists whom you see everyday on your idiot box.
Times Now had “much important” thing to discuss . They cried for Ustad Amjad Ali Khans ‘Sarod’. Not a word for Kashmiri Pandits.
IBN live discussed eveything from Chinese hackers to Pakistani cricketers. Not a word for Kashmiri Pandits
Zee News thought predicting other people future was more important than telling the world how the community lived as refugees since last 20 years.
NDTV cried for Pakistani cricketers ‘ignored’ during IPL auction. However they had no words for how a community of 7,00,000 humans in 1990 are on verge of extinction.
India Today was interested and digging marital status of Salman Khan and how aliens would make porn. They had no words for Kashmiri pandit community and how not even single conviction has happened against killers of thousands of Kashmiri Hindus.
Prabhu Chawla, the veteran journalist seem to have a failing memory. He talked about taxes but did not prefer to talk about a Kashmiri Hindu who gets about Rs 1000 only to survive for and living in refugee camps.
Barkha Dutt, who doesnt know her. She felt Pakistani Players were being insulted in IPL auction. Would have loved if for a change she would have discussed 20th year in exile of Pandits.
Mrityunjoy , was concerned for ‘Aman Ki Asha” . He did not have a word for a Kashmiri Pandit community who have no “Aasha” left from this country.
Sagarika Ghosh was fuming at Preity Zinta for not buying a Pakistani Player. Did Sagrika forget that hundred of thousands of Kashmiri Pandits who are homeless today had a 5000 year history in Kashmir.
Nidhi Razdan of NDTV was again more concerned about Pakistani players not being owned in IPL . It sounded her ‘politics’. Wonder why Nidhi chose to ignore Kashmiri Pandits who do NOT form political vote banks. Ironically Nidhi was born into a Kashmiri Pandit family . Maybe a NDTV influence is much stronger.
Vir Sanghvi, I love his columns in Hindustan Times”. Even he ignored us .Maybe Kashmiri pandits do not deserve an attention . A movie does.
Vikram Chandra was the only exception . He wrote a line about Kashmiri Pandits
However Vikram immediately had to balance his quote , which though did make sense. Did he feel that by talking about a Hindu pain classify him to be a rightist ?
It seems that due to huge pressure from viewers and readers , NDTV may be doing a program on Kashmiri Pandits. However in the same program problems of Kashmiri Muslims would be highlighted. Even that may not a an exclusive one.
How many times have these media houses tried to balance while discussing Gujarat ?
We do not have any hope from these media channels and these pseudo secular journalist who are intellectually and morally bankrupt.
Thank you , we dont need you . There are still few Indian’s like Shrey Vats and others . People dont know them …but they make an attempt to reach out to our feelings ….by just writing about us.
