Pandits imposed migration on themselves so Muslims can be killed: Rashid

Pandits imposed migration on themselves so Muslims can be killed: Rashid
  • 2

SRINAGAR: Pro-India politician and independent legislator Abdul Rashid on Wednesday termed the 25 years of ‘self imposed’ migration of Pandits as a ‘period of picnic’ for the community during which it has been ‘availing economic benefits and packages from the Indian and state government’.

‘Real migration made thrice by Muslims of the Valley; there has been no discussion on it’

Talking to reporters at a press conference, Rashid said the Pandits had ‘forced the migration on themselves’. “The world knows that Pandits themselves left, and their migration was a well-planned strategy to exterminate Muslims from the Valley. The plan was to keep Muslims alone, bulldoze them freely and return back to capture their properties (sic),” Rashid said, adding that instead of staying with Muslims, they (Pandits) left them to be killed.
Rashid also said that the ‘real migration’ was made three times by Muslims of the Valley and there has been no discussion on it. “Security agencies made Jamat-e-Islami workers migrate from their ancestral places and move to other parts of the state for survival. Similarly, thousands of families in border districts of Poonch, Baramulla and Kupwara were also forced by security agencies to migrate to Pakistan, but nobody speaks for them. If Kashmiri Pandits are entitled to huge packages, jobs and other facilities why should not internally displaced Muslims and those forced to migrate to PaK be given the same?” he asked.
Rashid, who accused the Pandits of defaming Muslims, said they have been working as stooges of New Delhi in Kashmir for defaming Muslims and diverting efforts to resolve the Kashmir issue. “Of the Pandits, who call their self-imposed migration of a few people as ‘holocaust’, I ask what name they will give to one lakh Muslim martyrs killed by security forces? Instead of showing some respect, they work on an anti-Muslim agenda.”
“Pandits call Kashmir ‘matrbhoomi’ (mother land), but they left it so that Muslims can be killed. If Pandits have to return, they must behave and shun their anti-Muslim policy,” he added.

    whatever the provocation, pandit migration is a historical wrong which is to be corrected for the peace and glory of kashmir, we all acknowledge it. how over, it doesn’t suit the progressive and cultured kashmiri migrants to sing in tune with the proponanats of the brutal occupation in kashmir. operation tiger, catch and kill, ikhwamis, task force , papa 1, papa 2,and impunity to forces involved in these crimes against humanity; every well meaning indian will hang head in shame with this modus operandi…. Its high time migrated pandits are seen moving away from the state policy of exterminating the next generation of kashmiris…
    long live an inclusive forward looking progresive moeg masher.. good day

    I doubt about these politicians who use their tounge so smartly that simple common people start abusing each other. Previously same was performed by now Cm and today this person is every day coming with such statements which are meaningless. Kashmir belongs to all those who believe in humanity. There is no doubt that we have been deceived but this is also important to understand that we all have to come together for the Solution of the problem. Those who write nonsense neither make almighty happy nor to the people. Let me know what is our contribution towards humanity at large and innocent kashmiri(whether Muslim or pandith) in particular. Brothers unite for the sake of humanity. Don’t be high in hype and low in type. We can agree to disagree. If we spit on each other here being so called literate. Then sorry I want to be illiterate like my ancestors who are still known for simplicity and harmony. Hating someone is not difficult but to accept them is actual challenge. Better to streamline energy and come with solution no with rhetoric like this engineer Rashid

    Rashid is a bold leader & commonly speaks what is reality but his only sin is he is not joining Hurriyat.

    Kashmiri people please come to real world although cruel but reality is Kashmir was a Hindu territory for 5000 year before powerful afghan/arabs invaded it & converted to Muslim many by force or otherwise. Now India has power & although secular its still Hindu majority nation so you are on receiving end then why you are crying.. suck it up… try to fight they day you will strong than India you will be free….
    So please keep fighting… at least its keeping indian army in fighting fitness & rest of the india united.. one more thing as long as you have Pakistan as supporter & JeM & Let as fighters civilised world will keep us supporting…

    Pro-India politician and independent legislator Abdul Rashid :
    Read about the seven migrations Kashmiri Pandits were forced to undertake all at the instance of Muslims.

  11. Sunil   October 7, 2016 at 1:49 pm

    Dymnesia is a cruel disease which captures those heads which become empty. So one who is barking (Rashid Khour) and those who are endorsing his view and enjoying spreading another lie, are all sick and we need to sympathisise with them.
    Also an argument with a person who pretends is futile.


    These people are pretending to sleep….. how can one wake them up…..

  12. Just another Kashmiri.   September 28, 2016 at 2:27 pm

    Every now and then you see a “patriot” proposing to use bullets instead of pellets. They insist that the police and army should start killing the people until we start chanting Vande Matram. And then they blame us for being radical. Hypocrisy and irony.

  13. zubair   September 26, 2016 at 9:37 am

    People who think that just pandits where killed are ignorants Indians who have been brain washed by their so called dirty media and if youu are so much worried by the killings of 400-500 pandits then also accept the fact that around 40k kashmiri’s have been also killed since 1990’s and 30000-40000 are missing and many have been disabled. I pity on your psychology….. shame on you and you being a human…………shame on you

  14. Navsheena   September 10, 2016 at 10:48 pm

    Charismatic personality

    what about thousands of pandits who have been living in the valley and never left. No one of them was killed. what about sikhs and christians who never left ????

    Muslim are facing all the conspiracies all over the world and every terrorist happening from 9/11 to 26/11 or the daily bomb blasts in the name of fundamentalist ISLAM are all false . MUSLIMS all saints and the stupid public rubs their necks on their swords or come nearer to them when they want to blow crackers to start their journey to HEAVEN for tasting the 72 vervains and get killed in the process ? Allah bless your followers with some brain

    He is not a lunatic only but worse than a dog and a shame for the mankind. He deserves to be incarcerated and not allowed to move outside the valley or shot dead by the Army.

  19. Sunil   August 22, 2016 at 2:19 pm

    Naikoo….you are reaping the fruit of what you had sown for all those years since 1947 when u used to call Pandits Dal Batta…you used to tease them with Pakistan obsession that you had and disrespect them and misbehave with them. In 1990 you people went mad with your religious jingoism and that made you people exposed infront of the entire world as you took pride in hunting out the peaceful pandits who gave you people their land and who educated you. Lanat hai tum logon par and today you say pandits are doing a propaganda. I pray to almighty that you go through the same pain and disaster which you unleashed upon us… If you are sincere and truthful then this prayer of mine may not work, but if you have done what I said above, then may God deal with you and make you homeless…. Jagmohan did not ask us to leave, but he failed to keep us there. It was your Masjids from where your mullahas dictated .. you forgot Alsafa news paper advertisement by coward militants who were your bosses and still are……It is use less to talk to liars and cowards…… You eat Indian but u spit on India … that is your character…..

  20. Sunil   August 22, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    Rashid Khour was recently seen eating the Indian Armys leftover at a function in Srinagar. Who knows he might be an agent of RAW or indian Army….. So it is for Muslims who support him to take cognizance of the matter declare a fatwa against him.

  21. Murtza al HindI   August 22, 2016 at 2:26 am

    As I read all the above comments, I can make out that Rashid’s point of view is illogical. No community will stage a drama for such a long time.

    I also mourn every casualty in the Kashmir and elsewhere. But why are their clashes in Kashmir. I was watching some Indian channel where they said 2000 men with 10000 stones attach a police post with 10 to 20 policemen. Army and police fires some thing called pellets in self defense. These pellets cause harm to the attacking mob.
    Another TV channel suggested that extrimists hide themselves in these mob and they bring children and civilians to cover them where these children get hurt and all this is then used to project atrocities of Indian forces!

  22. Asha   August 21, 2016 at 12:44 pm

    He this rashid enguneer is a lunatic. Sadly i ve come to this conclusion after observing him for some He provokes by beef party then denying kashmir is an integral part of india nd now making kps a violent lot wishing d death of their rnejghbors with who they ve lived peacefully for generations.
    All lies lies nd lies. He is an isi agent d has to fulfill his agenda else wont get funds
    Ignore him.

    India is a cunning nation. Simply put, it is a SHAME TO BE AN INDIAN. Let me remind one and all, Dogs and Indians are not allowed in Kashmir.

    let us assume Kashmir is independent today. can you tell me what is the different or out of box constitution you will get in kashmir which is not there in the present constitution. Just want to know what is going to be different

  25. Indian   August 19, 2016 at 1:52 pm


    So by your story one day the Pandits got up killed their own people and then went to camps
    to live a difficult life. All for the love they got from Muslims. Check you facts again & read how many Sikhs were killed in Kashmir. Chittisinghpura massacre will give you an Idea of what radicals have done. The sad part is when radicalization sets in the worst hit are women. It feel sad to see women talking in support of radicals. be careful with people who have tasted the blood through bullets. For them life has no value to prove their point they will use bullet to anyone and on anything

  26. khalsa   August 10, 2016 at 9:37 am

    We sikhs are still living with our kashmiri bros…these are the rumors which are spreading by indian media that pandits are not safe in kahmir….most of the pandits leave d valley to attain the benifits provided by state and central govt in jammu nd rest prt of india….,..

  27. Vijay   July 23, 2016 at 6:12 am

    What a conspiracy theorist! these were the ones who say 9/11 attack on america is a inside handiwork. Are there any pundit who wish to second this theory? If I were forced to leave my homeland and years later when there is a chance to get back, would’nt hesitate to return. However despite repeated assurances from Kashmir Muslims, there is not much happening with their return. Finally Govt had to organise separate colonies! Who will trust a wolf.

    I had been working outside Kashmir since 1995, I learnt that every Kashmiri Hindu who has migrated from Kashmir in 1990-91, are making propaganda and defaming Kashmiri Muslims in every corner of the world. They should understand the background of the Kashmir conflict.Ofcourse they were most affected financially after their migration, but it was the mistake of Jug Mohan then governor of J&K who directed them to migrate from the valley without his proper planning for their settlements outside Kashmir. Most of the Kashmiri Pandits became financially weak most of them who were from rural areas and those who have not much exposure to the outside world. But the way they defame kashmiri Muslims is not fear.

  32. Muhammad Amin Khan   June 21, 2016 at 9:30 am

    The Hindu migration was done by Governer Jag Mohan.
    So that Muslims will killed.

  34. Nitin   June 10, 2016 at 6:47 pm

    Where were Kashmiri Muslims 5000 years ago.Even Islam was introduced in the world some 2000-3000 years ago so it is clearly evident that Kashmir was inhibited by Hindu only. No Muslims was there in Indus civilization time so the claim of Muslim Kashmir is totally wrong.

  35. manas   June 7, 2016 at 12:14 pm

    had the pandits of Sangram pora wandhhama Nadi marg, telvani, the families of Nai sark and Habba kadal imposed this migration of themselves , it would have been much better than to live here for them

  36. Amit Dogra   May 17, 2016 at 9:48 am

    There was genocide of Hindus & Sikhs starting from Muzzafarabad starting on 22/10/1947 then at Rajouri & Poonch on Nov 5, 1947, then at Mirpur on Nov 24, 1947 followed at Gilgit, kotli bhimber Rawalakot etc etc …. They started it on 22/10/1947……. Poonch & Rajouri was under the occupation of Pakistan for one year & was liberated in Nov 1947.

    At present there is not a single soul of Non-Muslims in POK, what happened to them?

  37. Sandeep   May 17, 2016 at 9:33 am

    Poor analysis by Mr Rashid.

    When it comes to Kashmiri Muslims the narrative is Kashmir conflict. When it comes to Pandits the narrative is re-designed.

    If narrative is Kashmir conflict then narrative is minority stranded in a conflict zone. History will tell you from Bosnia to Syria what happens to them in a conflict zone. Kashmir will also tell you with remnants of pandits there was Wandhama, Nandi Marg & Sangrampura like in Bosnia & Syria.

    By same narrative Muslims who fled Syria was due to conflict not for picnic…

  38. Vivek Kaul   April 24, 2016 at 9:29 pm

    Simple…..Stop this movement to install Nizam-e-mustafa in Kashmir & things will be alright overnight.

  39. Parshu Narayanan   April 14, 2016 at 11:17 pm

    I have Kashmiri Pandit relatives through marriage – they have lost their homeland through their migration – the handlers in Pakistan and a number of local separatists drove them away – Rashid’s statement is a cruel joke – and further makes any political concessions on independence or autonomy impossible to sell to the Indian public – but of course I broadly agree India should jettison the valley and not keep anyone Indian at gunpoint – maybe carving a viable economic zone from it for the Pandits that can remain safe within India

  40. Abhai Singh   April 12, 2016 at 9:44 pm

    It is true muslims of Kashmir valley never asked Kashmiri Pandits to leave but some gun holding people did kill them and threatened. It is violence and fear of death which forced the people to leave their houses. Among them were also mulims who feared violence and left their houses to some other places. Actually violence is vary bad thing. Gun is very bad. Let us condemn violence and make every part of the world including Kashmir worth leaving. Only solution is that Kashmiri of all religons unit and struggle for peace and better relations between Pakistan and India to allow people to go free from one country to an other.

  41. Rahul Kaul   April 10, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    Any death is condemnable but deaths those happen for carrying anti national activities are not condemned at all. If we go as per the logic of Dimwit Rashid, does he know what it takes to stay in camps and living on relief. 26 yrs and country development has reached to new heights but our state looks like a distraught Afghan city clustered and wrecked by stupid wahabis. Our state needs development and if 370 gave special previlige to Muslims of valley then why there is big zero in the name of development. No investor is interested to invest there so long as this false myth of 370 special previlige remains there .Majority in valley want to change their lifestyle and not live like nomads.It’s because some shops of jihad will be shut permanently, the sentiments of Muslims are being played with.People of valley hv understood that it makes no sense to promote wahabi cult as it has no taker in places like Saudi Arabia itself and the so called jihad is a sales pitch of few morons to keep their personal shops running whereas their kits and kind are enjoying their lives out of valley. So much of an hypocrisy is prevalent in the minds that they r unable to differentiate between what is good for them and all. Kashmiri Hindus will reclaim what they have lost including their Homeland and everyone will watch and see.

  42. skumar   April 10, 2016 at 11:53 am

    Rashid is the pro militancy in fact a militant. Doesnt he know that the kashmir belonged to kashmir pundits who are the orginal residents of the valley. I have been hearing this shameless man many times on TV talk shows were he couldn’t stand the straight questions from the TV anchor. And has thrown the color mikes. And this idiot has the audicity to call kashmir pundits as bagodas. These people have come from Iran and central Asia in this pundit land Reshivaer. And inspite of being thankful to kashmiri pundits who accommodated them in our land have been thankless and ahsaan faramoosh. People like Rashid and other hurryat leaders who have been living on the alms of both Pakistan and Muslim countries have no love lost for the ordinary kashmiri Muslims. Because their children don’t die nor miss education or remain jobless. Because their children study in bestof indiaIndian schools or in Europe. These people enjoy the full state security and privacy. Ordinary people are forced to die either through security forces or by militants or by sucide bombs. I wish some sane Muslims should rise to the occasion and mobilise the ordinary Muslims of kashmir and tell them that they are beeing cheated and hoodwinked by these so called religious leaders. This life is once live it happily there are no hoors and no virgins waiting for you. Use your brain and start questioning these selfish leaders of yours. Had this so called cause been just and achievable then why haven’t they inducted their children in the care . There children are enjoying hoors and virgins in this life itself being in Europe and other places and you have been left to die.

    Engineer Abdul rashid has no logic no brain. His brain is as thick as the buffalo.
    Kashmirs solutions lies in removing articles 370. Once it is removed then the general kashmiri Muslim population will be brought into the main steam and these hurriyat and other militant organisations will have no followings nor the fooder for their militant cause.
    God bless kashmiri pundits were ever they are. One day we are going to be back to our mother land and reclaim our land and property.

    Life has suffered a lot since 1989. But the pandits have always gained the sympathy from the state and Central government. On the other side Muslim are getting killed now and then since 2 and half decades. But no one bothers about them. In the recent five years Indian security have killed thousands of innocent teens even in school uniform, play grounds and on. No kashmiri Muslim is safe at this point.

    He is right because all Muslims in Kashmir have Hindu background. Please check your ancestry. The moguls forced Hindus in Kashmir to convert into Muslims and now they are brainwashed and forgot who they really were, it’s sad for them as they lost their identity.

  46. Imran wagay   March 4, 2016 at 10:23 am

    Pandit migration and muslim genocide both in Jammu(1947) and Kashmir(1989 to present) are never ending discussions. But at least for sure Chattisinghpora massacre of sikhs was done by Indian army to Defame the insurgency during visit of us pres . Even US president Clinton admitted it

    When you believe that peace (aman) is possible only when you are surrounded by people exactly like yourself, it is inevitable that you never find peace. Today Pandits are to blame for Kashmir’s plight, tomorrow it will be Sufis, then Shia, then somebody else, till there is no one left but you and your conscience. At that point, your finger will point to your soul. Is se pehle sudhar jao, join the ranks of the civilized world.

  51. surinder   February 12, 2016 at 10:19 am

    dont talk of sikh brothers living in peace. You have forced many of them like us to migrate out of kashmir. Perhaps you are forgetting the sikh massacres conducted by your agents and brothers from across the border. Your agents had stuck posters everywhere asking minorities to leave the place. So get your facts right before basing opinions based on what you read on facebook!

  52. Human   February 9, 2016 at 12:18 am

    Wow! How can somebody stoop to such lows. Is there anything called soul in these religious but head politicians anymore? After killing so many Pandits, how do they even have the audacity to spread such lies. What a pathetic creature. Real shame on Kashmiris who encourage such nuisance.

    One simple logic, nobody wants to leave his motherland unless his life is at stake or the women of the community are under fear. “Pandits themselves left, and their migration was a well-planned strategy to exterminate Muslims from the Valley” no rational thinking person will buy this argument.

  57. Rex   February 3, 2016 at 3:54 am

    Maybe this idiot was sleeping when the militant groups were shouting slogans against pandits at midnight from their mosques and telling them to run away or they will be killed. What about lakhs of pandits leaving their houses and lands to save their children and women when they were threatened by gun wielding jihadi at point blank. This is another moron who knows nothing about ethnic cleansing pandits have witnesses time and again in Kashmir. Who can trust these snakes when that kill their own kind !

  58. Sajad   January 31, 2016 at 3:46 pm

    If Pandits are stooges of New Dehli (which they indeed, are), then what is Engr Rashid for God sake? If Engr Rashid knows well, that Kashmiris have never accepted Indian constitution and its illegal occupation, than why is Engr Rashid belonging to same polity, that is working day in and day out to strengthen its illegal hold on a people (Kashmiris) who refuse it (Indian occupation)?
