Kashmir: A Tale of Two Communities, Cloven

Anuradha Bhasin Jamwal's review ("A Moon of Many Shades", 27 April 2013) of Rahul Pandita's book, Our Moon Has Blood Clots, led to responses from Pandita ("Selective Memory, Collective Amnesia", 1 June 2013) and Sualeh Keen ("Inconvenient People", 8 June 2013). Two more articles engage with the contentious issue of the migration/exile of Kashmiri Pandits in early 1990 and the responsibility for the same, which this discussion has opened up.

This is in continuation of the discussion which has taken place in the EPW over the flight of the Kashmiri Pandits in 1990.

What happened in the Kashmir Valley in the late 1980s and early 1990s took not only the Pandits by surprise, but also the majority Muslims. The only difference was that the latter immediately identified with the new developments and the ensuing armed struggle, for there were reasons to do so, many of them not exclusively religious.
