Twelve Years and Counting....
Editorial Team

The coming 14th of September will mark the 12th death anniversary of Pt. Tika Lal Taploo. It was on this day in 1989 when Islamic Terrorists in Kashmir gunned down Pt. Tika Lal Taploo and conveyed their first explicit threat to the existence of Kashmiri Pandits. That was the first gruesome sign of things to come for Kashmiri Pandits in the Valley of Kashmir. That was Islamic Terrorism's first explicit threat to the Kashmiri Pandit's life, dignity and honor. And that was not the last.

It has been twelve years since Kashmiri Pandits were hounded out of their homes and hearths and forced to live as  refugees in their own country. And during these twelve years, not much has been done to alleviate the sufferings of Kashmiri Pandits. All the successive central and state governments have completely neglected this forsaken and endangered community. And not much has been done by organizations like Amnesty International and Human Rights Commissions either. None of these so-called Human Rights organizations have bothered to talk about the violation of human rights of this community.

There has been an escalation of ghastly violence against Hindus by Pakistan-sponsored terrorists in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. The most recent series of incidents in the Jammu region has included massacres of scores of Hindus and beheading of priests. This follows the pattern in Kashmir valley, where over 350,000 Hindus were hounded out by Pakistan-sponsored terrorists in 1990.

Post-cold war America has become along with militarized Pan-Islamism as the new source of destabilization for the countries of the third world. It sells the balkanising proposals as being the victim country’s national interest. US has already soiled its hands in the Balkans, Central Asia and South-West Asia. Its new strategy is to manipulate the victim country’s civil society and make its dangerous proposals acceptable to the people there.
