The terrorists created an orgy
The night of January 19, 1990, was a nightmare. Almost the entire Muslim population of Srinagar turned against India. Millions of people had gathered on the streets and squares. The valley resounded with anti-India and anti-Hindu slogans. Firebrand leaders of Jamaat-e-Islami were setting fire against Hindus through loudspeakers. Kashmiri Pandits were terrified. The administration raised its hand. The police had disappeared from the city. Not a single soldier came out of the Badami Bagh cantonment to protect the civilians. How could he leave? The then Home Minister Mufti Saeed had taken a neutral stand. The valley was deliberately left open in the hands of terrorists for dancing.
The next morning was even more terrifying. Kashmiri Pandits saw that all the local Urdu newspapers had become enemies of India and its people. He was speaking as an Urdu spokesman for the jihadists. Al-Safa had warned Kashmiri Pandits to leave the valley without their wives. They had no choice but to leave their ancestral home.
The walls were painted with the name “Islamic Republic of Kashmir”.
Dr Farooq Abdullah had resigned from the post of Chief Minister of the coalition government and fled to London. The former minister visited government bungalows in Jammu overnight. He had deployed local police to protect his family. Kashmiri Pandits were left to hunt wild wolves roaming the streets of Srinagar.
The words “Islamic Republic of Kashmir” were written in large letters on the walls of Kashmir. Even in the news bulletin of Radio Kashmir, the names of those Kashmiri Pandits were announced daily by the terrorists. However, Al Safa and Aftab later took a U-turn. Has issued an explanation. In it, he denied responsibility for the terrorists’ statements.
