I knew that a massacre took place during 1947. But when I started to read up on the subject, it shocked me to see just how unaware we are about the "Nakba" that took place & the tales of horror it caused & most of all how the narrative got distorted by the perpetrator.

Because how can this crime, nothing less than a genocide, be so ignored outside of the area? How can massacres, several hundred thousands killed & a million forced to flee, not even render a whisper in our history books?

It is time to lift this historical injustice to the surface & give the victims the right to own their stories.
I have collected some articles dealing with the forgotten massacres & expulsion of the Kashmiri people. Each article has a short intro or quotes from content.

First and foremost; The Kashmiri history is best told by Kashmiris. Please visit Lost Kashmiri History to get updates on historical events as well as sentiments from the ground and articles that reflects the ongoing conflict.

#Kashmir #History
In October, 1947 India deployed troops to disputed #Kashmir. Since then pro-independence groups and rebel factions have been observing October 27 as the ‘Black Day’. Here is how the conflict over the tiny Himalayan region started.
In late November 1947, after Indian Forces entered #Kashmir, over 200,000 Muslims in Jammu were killed, and rapes and looting were widespread.

The forgotten pogrom.

Achingly beautiful reminiscence of a day that is etched in every Kashmiri's memory bank.
BlackDay - #Kashmir Oct 27 1947: The story of Indian invasion I heard from my grandmother ~ Written By Arshad Hussain…
"More than 100 lories, loaded with women, children & old men were taken into the wilderness of Kuthua. Hindu extremists & armed gangs were let loose on these innocent people & an unparallel butchery was perpetrated, killing thousands of them"

#Kashmir 1947
"Women were raped, molested and their valuables looted. All these bloodsheds were taking place in full view of the Indian army"
"In another act of butchery, a large gathering of 25000 Muslims were machine-gunned"
~ Bloodied rivers of #Kashmir 1947
"The victims of the #Jammu carnages still wait, some in body and the rest in soul, for justice which has alluded them all these decades”
A tragedy that should be one of these we all remember.
The Jammu Massacre 1947 #Kashmir…
"There is no evidence recorded by any historian or writer that a simple FIR was ever lodged against those responsible for this carnage"
Official numbers say 237000. India brags about 500000 murdered Muslims.

👉 No FIR. 👈

Another account of the Forgotten Genocide in #Jammu
"The killing fields of Jammu: How Muslims become a minority in the region.
Official records have tried their utmost to suppress the details of a Muslim massacre"
~S. Naqvi

#Kashmir #History…
The last letter. #Kashmir 1947
"Jammu is burning, so are its adjoining areas. Muslims are being dragged out of their homes & butchered on roads. This is an organised pogrom against Muslims"

#Jammu witnessed a mass genocide at the hands of Dogra rulers, the number of the killed being about 200,000 (237.000 according to most sources)

Some rare pictures from a forgotten genocide:…
"70 years on "The organised & officially patronised #Jammu massacre, almost nothing has been written by India’s mainstream media, keeping alive the tradition of sweeping this enormous human tragedy under the carpet"
By Gowhar Geelani #Kashmir…
"In an interview on October 26, 1947 the former editor of #Kashmir Times, GK Reddy, calls the “mad orgy of Dogra violence against unarmed Muslims as an episode (that) should put any self-respecting human being to shame”

"For the last 70 years, the Indian armed forces & #Jammu and #Kashmir Police irrespective of the laws have enjoyed absolute impunity. Nobody was punished for the massacre of Muslims in Jammu region in 1947"
"The most gruesome of massacres of 1947 involving killing of tens of thousands of Muslims with official connivance has remained the least talked about occurrence in the sub-continental narratives"

#Kashmir #History…
"#Jammu massacre of 1947 that was shrouded in #Kashmir-happenings of that time"

Important read with literature tips on #JammuMartyrs #JammuMassacre!

"The massacre in #Jammu seventy one years ago changed the demography of the region by a ruthless state sponsored slaughter of over 2.3 lakh Muslims"
