Kashmiri pundit-who cares!!!
India is the largest democratic country in the world with population of over 1 billion.
It is believed that in a democratic set up Representatives are chosen by the people and for the people. That also means larger the population of any community whether Marathis,Punjabis,Gujratis,Tamils or Bengalis larger is the corresponding number of MLA’s and M.P’s.But lately It has been caste based politics in India where the leaders try to convince the public in the name of religion or caste or even sub-castes like Hindu-Muslim and Yadavs,Jats,dalits etc. This is only creating rift among the different castes in Hindus. Everyday people are killed in the name of religion and casteism in India. If this is democracy then Democracy is not good for India. Democracy is disintegrating India. In the recent past Naxalites, Maoists have killed thousands and it is only growing day by day.
India is already facing problems in the north east and Kashmir. In north east and Kashmir It is the different religions which are creating problems and in Assam It is the mixture of ethnic communism which is creating problem. India has not been able to solve the problem of north east and Kashmir because of loopholes in Indian democracy.
There was no need to impose article 370 in Kashmir and If India really wants to solve the problem of Kashmir It should withdraw article 370.Minority vote politics is the biggest hurdle in abolishing article 370.I am writing this because I am victim of both Indian democracy and article 370.
Kashmiri pundit was the only voice which was in favor of India when we were there in Kashmir before 1990.We laid down our lives for India and we got shame and humiliation in return from both state governments and govt. of India. Population of 4lakh Kashmir pundits does not have a voice which can be heard in lok sabha or rajya sabha. No body bothers about us because we don’t form vote bank of any political party. Democratic system has given one lesson to us- “kashmiri pundits are not wanted in India”.
Don’t think Pro-hindutwa political parties especially BJP has done anything for us.
Our names though frequently used to attract more Hindu votes, but practically only Lip service.
Before 1990 things were different. We were in Kashmir and we had faith that govt. of India cares for us, but that proved to be illusion. Respective state governments whether it was National conference or congress or Pdp no one really wants us in J&k.This can be proved by the number of jobs given to kashmiri pundits after 1990.Kashmiri pundits form 25% of educated class in J&k but the number of jobs given to kashmiri pundits
Is not even 1%.Which clearly indicates that state govt. does not want us to be there!
Govt. at center is not bothered about us and state govt. does not want us to be there. We have been uprooted from our homes and although we have managed to survive so far but the big question remains “We laid our lives for India and we got nothing but humiliation from those who are at the helm of managing India”..why!!!!
We are not even acknowledged as Refugees in our own country.why????? We lost our people to the bullets of Terrorists as we choose to be Indians.
Uprooted from our motherland, Humiliated, physically, emotionally and psychologically bruised, Still we managed to held our heads high for India,but why??????
who cares for us…..as we are Kashmiri Pandits….The lost identity of Glorious past of Kashmir but, who do not fit any vote bank..The non-voilent indigenous people of Satisar, who had a Known history of 5000 years, but today at the door of extinct Race…Thanks to the policies of my country.
Kashmiri pandits, despite all the hardships, have learnt the art of survival..
Though engulfed in the dark, created by the enemies of Humanity,
have chosen to wait and see that light of truth which will disperse the darkness of lies,
with this belief, and their good Karma,we shall rise again…..
