Srinagar, January 20 (KMS): Senior Congress leader and former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Digvijay Singh, has revealed that the then Governor of occupied Kashmir, Jagmohan Malhotra, had forced the Kashmiri Pandits to leave the Kashmir Valley in 1990.

“Kashmiri Pandits were unnecessarily forced to leave the Valley by Jagmohan. Hindus and Muslims lived together for Centuries in Kashmir,” Singh wrote on microblogging site Twitter. He further said that it was sad they (Kashmiri Pandits) had not been settled by successive governments.

It is not the first time that a senior congress leader has held Jagmohan responsible for the migration of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley.


Senior Congress leader, Mani Shankar Aiyar, in his book titled, ‘Confessions of a Secular Fundamentalist’ has written in details how Jagmohan gave a safe passage to the Kashmiri Pandits to Jammu before unleashing terror in the Valley.

A day after Kashmiri Pandits migrated to Jammu, the troops of Indian Centra Reserve Police Force fired upon peaceful protesters in Gaw Kadal area of Srinagar on January 21, 1990. Though official figures put the number of fatalities at 21, human rights groups say 51 persons were killed in the massacre.

In April last year, former puppet Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, also blamed Jagmohan for exodus of Pandits from the Valley. He had stated that the exodus of Pandits from Kashmir took place under Jagmohan, who was appointed Governor by the Indian government, which was supported by BJP.
