    This is what Singh meant by exceprt.

    On Jan, 04, 1990, a local Urdu newspaper, Aftab, published a press release issued by Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, asking all Pandits to leave the Valley immediately. Al Safa, another local daily repeated the warning.These warnings were followed by Kalashnikov-wielding masked Jehadis carrying out military-type marches openly. Reports of killing of Kashmiri Pandits continued to pour in. Bomb explosions and sporadic firing by militants became a daily occurrence.

    The letter said, ‘We order you to leave Kashmir immediately, otherwise your children will be harmed- we are not scaring you but this land is only for Muslims, and is the land of Allah. Sikhs and Hindus cannot stay here’. The threatening note ended with a warning, ‘If you do not obey, we will start with your children. Kashmir Liberation, Zindabad.”1

    On Jan, 04, 1990, a local Urdu newspaper, Aftab, published a press release issued by Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, asking all Pandits to leave the Valley immediately. Al Safa, anotherlocal daily repeated the warning.These warnings were followed by Kalashnikov-wielding masked Jehadis carrying outmilitary-type marches openly. Reports of killing of Kashmiri Pandits continued to pour in. Bomb explosions and sporadic firing by militants became a daily occurrence.
    Explosive and inflammatory speeches being broadcast from the public address systems of the mosques became frequent. Thousands of audio cassettes, carrying similar propaganda, were played atnumerous places in the Valley, in order to instill fear into the already terrified Kashmiri Pandit community. Recalling these events, the former Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police, Shri M M Khajooria says, “The mischief of the summer of 1989 started with serving notice to the prominent members of the minority community to quit Kashmir.
    The letter said, ‘We order you to leave Kashmir immediately, otherwise your children will be harmed- we are not scaring you but this land is only for Muslims, andis the land of Allah. Sikhs and Hindus cannot stay here’. The threatening note ended with a warning, ‘If you do not obey, we will start with your children. Kashmir Liberation, Zindabad.”

    They signaled the implementation of their intentions quite blatantly. M. L. Bhan of Khonmoh, Srinagar, a government employee, was killed on Jan 15, 1990. Baldev Raj Dutta, an operator in Lal chowk, Srinagar, was kidnapped on the same day. His dead bodywas found four days later, on Jan 19, 1990, at Nai Sarak, Srinagar.The body bore tell-tale marks of brutal torture.
    Night of Jan, 19, 1990
    The night witnessed macabre happenings, the like of which had not been witnessed by Kashmiri Pandits after the Afghan rule.Those that experiencedthe fear of that night are unlikely to forget it in their life time. For future generations, it will be a constant reminder of the brutality of Islamic radicals, who had chosen the timing very carefully. “Farooq Abdullah, whose governmenthad all but seized to exist, resigned. Jagmohan arrived during the day to take charge as the Governor of the State.”2 He took over the charge of the Governor just the previous night at Jammu.He had made efforts to reach Srinagar during theprevious day, but the plane had to return to Jammu fromPir Panjal Pass, due to extremely bad weather. Though curfew was imposedto restore some semblance of order, it had little effect. The mosque pulpits continued to be used to exhort people to defy curfew and join Jehad against the Pandits, while armed cadres of JKLF marched through the streetsof the Valley, terrorizing them no end.
    As the night fell, the microscopic community became panic-stricken whenthe Valley began reverberating with the war-cries of Islamists, who had stage-managed the whole event with great care;choosing its timing and the slogans to be used. A host of highly provocative, communal and threatening slogans, interspersed with martial songs, incited the Muslims to come out on the streets and break the chains of ‘slavery’. These exhortations urged the faithful to give a final push to the Kafir in order to ring in the true Islamic order. These slogans were mixed with precise and unambiguous threats to Pandits.They were presented with three choices — Ralive, Tsaliv ya Galive (convert to Islam, leave the place or prish). Tens of thousands of Kashmiri Muslims poured intothe streets of the Valley, shouting ‘death to India’ and death to Kafirs.
    These slogans, broadcast from the loud speakers of every mosque, numbering roughly 1100, exhorted the hysterical mobs to embark on Jehad. All male Muslims, including their children and the aged, wanted to be seento be participating in this Jehad.Those who had organized such a show of force in the middle of a cold winter night, had only one objective; to put the fear of death into the hearts of the already frightened Pandits. In this moment of collective hysteria, gone was the facade of secular, tolerant, cultured, peaceful and educated outlook of KashmiriMuslims, which the Indian intelligentsia and the liberal media had made them to wear for their own reasons.
    ~
    Most of the Kashmiri Muslimsbehaved as if they did not know who the Pandits were. This frenzied mass hysteriawent on till Kashmiri Pandits’despondency turned into desperation, as the night wore itself out.
    ~
    For the first time after independence of India from the British rule, Kashmiri Pandits found themselves abandoned to their fate, stranded in their own homes, encircled by rampaging mobs.Through the frenzied shouts and blood-curdling sloganeering of the assembled mobs, Pandits saw the true face ofin-tolerant and radical Islam.It represented the complete antithesis of the over-ratedethos of Kashmiriyat that was supposed to define Kashmiri ethos.

    The pusillanimous Central Government was caught napping and its agencies in the State, particularly the army and other para militaryforces, did not consider it necessary to intervene, in the absence of any orders. The State Government had been so extensively subverted that the skeletonstaff of the administration at Srinagar (the winter capital of the State had shifted to Jammu in November 1989) decided not to confront the huge mobs. Delhi was too faraway, anyway.
    ~
    Hundreds of Kashmiri Pandits phoned everyone in authority at Jammu, Srinagar and Delhi, to save them from the sure catastrophe that awaited them. The pleadings for help were incessant. But not a soldier came to their rescue. Therefore, Kashmiri Pandits found best protection in huddling together indoors, frozen with fear, praying for the night to pass. The foreboding of the impending doom was too over-powering to let them have even a wink of sleep.
    ~
    The Pandits could see the writing on the wall. If they were lucky enough to see the night through, they would have to vacate the place before they met the same fate as Tikka Lal Taploo and many others. The Seventh Exodus was surely staring them in the face. By morning, it became apparent to Pandits that Kashmiri Muslims had decided to throw them out from the Valley. Broadcasting vicious Jehadi sermons and revolutionary songs, interspersed with blood curdling shouts and shrieks, threatening Kshmiri Pandis with dire consequences, became a routine ‘Mantra’ of the Muslims of the Valley, to force them to flee from Kashmir. Some of the slogans used were:
    ~
    “Zalimo, O Kafiro, Kashmir harmara chod do”.
    ~
    (O! Merciless, O! Kafirs leave our Kashmir)
    ~
    “Kashmir mein agar rehna hai, Allah-ho-Akbar kahna hoga”
    ~
    (Any one wanting to live in Kashmir will have to convertto Islam)
    ~
    La Sharqia la gharbia, Islamia! Islamia!
    ~
    From East to West, there will be only Islam
    ~
    “Musalmano jago, Kafiro bhago”,
    ~
    (O! Muslims, Arise, O! Kafirs,scoot)
    ~
    “Islam hamara maqsad hai, Quran hamara dastur hai, jehad hamara Rasta hai”
    ~
    (Islam is our objective, Q’uran is our constitution, Jehad is our way of our life)
    ~
    “Kashmir banega Pakistan”
    ~
    (Kashmir will become Pakistan)
    ~
    “Kashir banawon Pakistan, Bataw varaie, Batneiw saan”
    ~
    (We will turn Kashmir into Pakistan along with Kashmiri Pandit women, but without their men folk)
    ~
    “Pakistan se kya Rishta? LaIlah-e- Illalah”
    ~
    (Islam defines our relationship with Pakistan)
    ~
    Dil mein rakho Allah ka khauf; Hath mein rakho Kalashnikov.
    ~
    (With fear of Allah ruling your hearts, wield a Kalashnikov)
    ~
    “Yahan kya chalega, Nizam-e- Mustafa”
    ~
    (We want to be ruled under Shari’ah)
    ~
    “People’s League ka kya paigam, Fateh, Azadi aur Islam”
    ~
    (“What is the message of People’s League? Victory, Freedom and Islam.”)
    ~
    Wall posters in fairly large letters, proclaiming Kashmir as ‘Islamic Republic of Kashmir’, became a com-monsight in the entir Valley. So were the big and prominent advertisements in local dailies, proclaiming their intent:
    ~
    ‘Aim of the present struggle is the supremacy of Islam in Kashmir, in all walks of life and nothing else. Any one who puts a hurdle in our way will be annihilated’.
    ~
    Press release of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM) published in the morning edition of Urdu Daily ‘Aftab’ of April, 01, 1990.
    ~
    ‘Kashmiri Pandits responsible for duress against Muslims should leave the Valley within two days’.
    Head lines of Urdu Daily, Al Safa, of April, 14, 1990.
    ‘With Kalashnikov in one hand and Quran in the other the Mujahids would openly roam the streets singing theTarana-e- Kashmir.’

    I think barking dogs seldom bite but barking dogs must not cross the barking "limit".

    The Hurriayat chaps are daft.

    And anyway they are paid agents of the ISI.

    They have been caught with hawala funds.

    They congregate in the Pak Embassy and take instructions.

    They visit Pakistan and even have parroted Pakistan.

    They have visited terrorist camps in Pakistan.

    Actually, they are credible for the Indian Govt.

    They have no credibility with either the Indians or even the Kashmiris.

    I feel sad for KP's. Same thing might have happened in Afghanistan centuries ago.I just feel the problem will increase in near future.Only a lame man can ignore these signs.I don't know what is the govt. doing to tame these mind-sets of people.India is very different from West. Emulating the concept of west of Human Rights in Kashmir on 100% basis is not safe.There is no chance left for KP's in Kashmir. They will either die in or will meet the fate of forced conversion in Kashmir.The biggest thing is that these fundoo's have no remorse or conscious of what so ever left.
