Threatening to Pandits: Conflict within

By K.N. Pandita – It is somewhat bizarre that a powerful militant organization equipped with highly lethal weapons and committed suicidal cadres of mujahideen should have felt insecure by an impending visit of a few dozen of Kashmiri Pandits to Kashmir with the intention of performing befitting death rites of their martyrs.

The contemplated Pandit Mahashraadha ceremony of 6th August 2006 at Martand (Matan) was thwarted by the Harakatu’l-Jihad- Islami militating organization, which issued a letter of threatening only days before the ceremony would take place. Since none of the above mentioned militant organizations repudiated the contents of the letter, one is led to believe that it is a real and not a fake one. Even the Hurriyat and separatist political parties did not repudiate the threat.

Here is the text of the letter in question:

Harakatu’l-Jihad-e Islami

Kashmiri Pandits, who abandoned their native land in order to fully facilitate the traitors of the war for freedom in the Valley of Kashmir and the genocidal intentions of Jagmohan against the Muslims, are sternly advised to desist from any action that would make them informers against the freedom fighters.

Our organization endorses the joint statement of al-Arifeen, al-Nasireen, Farzandan-I Millat and New Kashmir Movement, issued by them on 22 July 2006 to the anti-national (meaning anti-Muslim) Kashmiri Pandits in which conditions were laid down that they should confess their intentions of Muslim killings, their sins (against the Muslims), their serious crimes, tender apology to the Muslims and join the war of freedom.

In a recent session, our organization, pronounced the impious resolution of the Kashmiri Pandits as utterly misleading. In it they (Pandits) had made no secret of their resolve to project some Kashmiri Pandits as “martyrs” who had been liquidated by setting afoot performance of religious rites in the region of Mattan in Islamabad.

Our organization warns the Pandits that if they hazard coming to Kashmir they will have to bear the consequences immediately after they show up in the valley. (In such an eventuality) neither the Prime Minister of Bharat nor its puppet Chief Minister (of J&K) nor the army can protect them.

The absconding Pandits would do well to confess their crimes and with folded hands beg apology from the Muslims. As long as they do not accept the conditions set forth by the organization, their path (to Kashmir) remains closed on them.
