Why Homeland?

 
   
Survival

The Hindu has become a refugee in his own country where he gets a shabby treatment worse than what India has given to the refugees from Tibet, Burma, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan etc. He is being discriminated even vis- a- vis the handful of Muslim refugees from the valley - mostly political bigwigs of discredited parties who have been housed in spatial and furnished lodgings; who are neither to get registered as refugees nor to stand in queues for relief or rations in burning Sun, nor to run from pillar to post to prove tbeir bonafides as displaced, nor to wait for release of the ameneties. On the contrary cash relief and other facilities are given to them in advance for months together. 

It is a savage battle that the community is fighting for shelter, livelihood, education, health care, employment and above all for its survival. It is heading towards unmitigated disaster as the deprivation, sun and humiliation have wreaked havoc on the physical, psychological and mental well-being-of the community and taken a huge toll of its members. The community continues to perish while the nation looks on unconcerned. More lives have been lost due to starvation, malnutrition, disease and accidents than due to terrorists' bullets. The community is facing dispersal and extinction. And before it is too late it may be forgotten that Kashmir valley belonged to the Kashmiri Hindus. The displaced yearn to return to their homes and hearths, to till their own land, pursue their own professional calling and visit their gods and temples; but all doors are closed to them. The jobs have been usurped, the houses burnt down or looted, the lands mutilated and encroached upon or annexed, the temples desecrated. And the erstwhile Muslim friends have already thrown them out of the valley and do not want them back. The community is at a loss to pick the loose ends of the tangle and to free itself from tbe web in which it finds itself enmeshed. It is hard pressed to preserve its religious and ethnic identity and maintain its glorious cultural traditions. It is at pains to uphold the principles of secularism, social justice, freedom of faith, democratic pluralism and nationalism-the very principles at the altar of which it was sacrificed in the valley and driven into exile.
