Why Homeland?

Rise of Armed terrorism

Armed militancy and terrorism has surfaced in the valley from the year 1988-89 on a large scale with the connivance and support of Pakistan. Muslim youth of the valley have been crossing the border in large numbers since 1984 and returning with sophisticated arms and ammunition after receiving training in sabotage and warfare. Their design has been to subvert democracy and secularism, establish an Islamic theocratic State and to secede from India. As a first step the minority Hindus of the valley became the first victims of this operation and they were gunned down indiscriminately, hanged or murdered by other brutal means. Torture, molestation and rape, threatening letters and telephone calls, posters and quit-notices pasted on doors and warnings through newspapers for the whole community to leave the valley within short and specified time, became the order of the day leading to a mass exodus of this community. More than a thousand members of this community have been done to death, and nearly three hundred thousand forced into exile.

While the exodus of the minority Hindu community on all occassions prior to 1947 were at the behest of and because of the tyrannics of despotic rulers swayed by fits of communal frenzy, the present exodus of 1989-90 is unparalleled in the history of world democracies. This time a large segment of a community has taken up arms with the aim of subverting secularism, mortgaging religious pluralism, decimating a Hindu minority and forcing its exodus in order to establish an Islamic State with the final aim of seceding from its parent country. This has happened in the largest democracy, that is India, and the minority Hindu community has been the helpless victim of a terrorism sponsored by the majority community of the valley with the connivance and support of the State administration and overlooked by successive Central governments.
