Hindu Mahasabha of America Deplores the Violence in Kashmir Valley
Hindu Mahasabha of America (HMSA) deplores the violence in the valley of Kashmir. The Government of India is compounding the problem by its weak-kneed response to the problem. Instead of working to isolate the instigators of the violence like Syed Geelani and booking him for sedition he is being looked as an overlord over the valley of Kashmir. In this conflict, there is another party, the Kashmiri Hindus who have been ethnically cleansed from the valley. By according instigators like Geelani a seat at the negotiating table, the Government of India has endorsed the ethnic cleansing that occurred. To compound their pusillanimity, the Government of India did not even sit down with Kashmiri Hindu’s nor with other ethnic minorities of the state of Jammu and Kashmir such as the Dogras and th e Gujjars and the Ladakhis etc. to ascertain their views.
HMSA strongly condemn the Government of India’s approach to this problem.
HMSA demands full protection to Hindus to resettle in the Kashmir valley and restoration of their property rights and right to livelihood there. HMSA also demands that persons advocating secession be dealt with according to the rule of law as outlined in the Indian Constitution.
