Supreme Court lists plea for probe into genocide of Hindus in Jammu & Kashmir for tomorrow

The Supreme Court has listed the plea seeking an SIT probe into the genocide of Hindus in Jammu & Kashmir filed by NGO ‘We the Citizens’, which sought directions for the declaration of all properties sold post-exodus in January 1990 as null and void, for tomorrow.

The plea was filed in the Apex Court, which calls for the constitution of the Special Investigation Team which should identify the perpetrators involved in the alleged genocide of Hindus and Sikhs in Jammu who were living in Kashmir during 1989-2003.

The petition, had been filed by a NGO We the Citizens, has also asked directions to conduct census for both Hindus and Sikhs, who have been victims or survivors of “genocide” in Jammu and Kashmir. It talks also about the Hindus and Sikhs who fled the valley then, and are now residing in different parts of India. The NGO also has sought their rehabilitation.

The petitioner has worked hard and researched several books, articles, and memoirs of migrants from Kashmir, including talking and knowing the first hand account of ghastly genocide and exodus of Kashmiri Sikhs and Hindus in the year 1990.

The prominent books which the petitioner has examined include My Frozen Turbulence in Kashmir authored by Jagmohan and Our Moon Has Blood Clots by Rahul Pandita.

The petitioner talks about the failure on part of the then government and police administration, which led to the complete breakdown of constitutional machinery.

The plea clearly talks of then government and state machinery which did not protect the life and limb of Hindus and Sikhs. It is alleged that the anti-nationals and terrorists were made to take control of whole of Kashmir.

The plea, filed through advocate Barun Kumar Sinha, said this led to Hindu and Sikhs citizens losing faith in the government and were forced to migrate to other parts of India.

The PIL has asked for declaring all sale of properties post exodus in the year January 1990 whether








be declared as null and void.
