He has sprinkled salt on our wounds: Kashmiri Pandits slam Ghulam Nabi Azad for exonerating Jihadis for the exodus

Jagmohan had taken charge as governor of the state on 18 January 1990, but the warning to Hindus to leave the state was already issued and a large number of Pandits were already killed by Jihadis before that

All India Kashmiri Samaj has condemned the statement of Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad who had tried to exonerate the Jihadis for the exodus of Kashmir Pandits by blaming the then governor Jagmohan for the same.


Yesterday, the Congress leader had said that prime minister VP Singh was coerced by the BJP to send Jagmohan as the Governor of the state to facilitate the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley. He appeared to give a free pass to the Islamic jihadis who intimidated and killed scores of Kashmiri Pandits in the valley, forcing them to leave their homeland and become refugees in their own country.

All India Kashmiri Samaj, an organisation of the Kashmiri Pandits living outside Kashmir, has condemned Ghulam Nabi Azad’s statement in a strongly-worded statement. The organisation says that the theory of holding Jagmohan responsible for the exodus was propounded by separatists and Jihadists and their sponsors, as part of a well-though disinformation campaign.


AIKS says that the objective of this campaign is bail out Kashmiri Jihadis and their supporters who actually threw the Pandits out, to shift the blame from Farooq Abdullah government in Jammu & Kashmir and the central government at that time, and also to get support of left / liberal / secular / Congress to give legitimacy to the campaign of Kashmiri Jihadis.

The statement says that Jagmohan was targeted because of his action to clean up the area around Turkman gate of Delhi, which was predominantly habituated by Muslims. Jagmohan was the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi at that time. Blaming him served the purpose of the Congress party, as it helped them to protect their vote bank. And the media bought this theory without questioning, as media is dominated left-liberal elements, AIKS says.

The statement also highlights the fact that Jagmohan had taken charge as governor of the state on 18 January 1990, and he could reach Srinagar on 19th due to poor weather, but the warning to Hindus to leave the state was already issued and a large number of Pandits were already killed by Jihadis before that. When Jagmohan had taken charge of the state after the resignation of Abdullah government, the exodus of the Pandits had already started.

AIKS had said that Azad’s statement has served the purpose of sprinkling salt on their wounds. They have added that no matter how many lies he speaks to serve his narrow political interests, the truth will always prevail.
