So many years since 19th January 1990 but that black night still haunts us all. It is matter collective shame to us all Indian Hindus that fellow Hindus are forcibly evicted from their homes only due to their religion without any fault and we just stayed silent.
We Didn't outrage, didn't take out enough morcha and forced govt at centre to take action against the Muslim radicals who raped our threatened kashmiri Hindus to leave back their properties, businesses and women and leave the valley permanently.
They were humiliated by govt officials in their makeshift camps and remained without food, proper shelter in those bitter cold days.
But they never gave up. Picked up their lives from the pieces and rebuilt their lives from scratch.

As a Kashmiri Hindu American, January 19 marks a terrifying, painful, & tragic day. It was the day 31 years ago that Kashmiri Hindus were given three choices by Kashmiri Muslims & Islamic terrorists from Pakistan: either (1) convert to Islam, or (2) flee Kashmir and
leave everything you know behind, or (3) get murdered. The trauma and pain of that fateful day is within all Kashmiri Hindus no matter where in the world we now live. Today we solemnly commemorate the brave Kashmiri Hindu women and men who were murdered, raped, and maimed due to
religious bigotry, intolerance, & hate. We hope something this horrible never happens to any community again & we hope that someday we can return to our beautiful ancestral homeland of Kashmir without fear & apprehension. #Kashmir #KashmiriHinduExodus #KashmiriPanditGenocide

19 Jan 1990 - "Exodus day". More than 3 lakh Kashmiri Pandits who resided in #Kashmir from time immemorial became refugees overnight in their own country. A #thread #KashmiriPandits
@AnupamPKher
The anti #Pandits pogroms & attacks started in 1989 with insurgency. On loud speakers open threats were being issued to #KashmiriPandits, the message was clear - "either leave the valley or die a painful death".
#KashmiriPanditGenocide
Posters were pasted outside their houses declaring them as targets for the Jihadist.
Instances of assassinations, tortures & murder were becoming common.

31 years later, the conspiracy continues

As the world marks the #KashmiriPanditGenocide of 1990 today, the so-called champions of Kashmir remain silent

Not a tweet from Omar Abdullah, whose father fled to London as Kashmiri's were being massacred, or PDP's Mehbooba Mufti

Few realize why Kashmiri Hindus mark 19th Jan, 1990 as their Day of Eternal Sorrow

Over 300 Hindus had ALREADY been massacred PRIOR to Jagmohan's arrival in Srinagar as J&K Governor that fateful day

JKLF & Hizb terrorists used mosque loudspeakers to urge people to rebels

(2/3)
All day loudspeakers blared and masked gunmen with AK-47s marched through the city urging people to defy curfew and prepare for Nizam-e-Mustafa

After the evening prayers, groups of local youth exited the mosques and marched around shouting anti-India AND communal slogans

SC says it has other 'priorities' rather than decide on decades-old #AyodhyaRamMandir case
And here are the priorities Indian Courts are busy with!
