Here is a sad story of a theosophist who was murdered in Kashmir. Without
going into the politics of the situation, here is a man who is also a
theosophist who tried to put into practice the objects of TS and Theosophy.
May his soul rest in peace. I picked this from Altavista when I searched for


Unravelling the Mystique
By Prof. Mohan Lal Koul


Muslim Fundamentalism

The Muslim terrorists of all hues hold aloft the banner of Muslim
fundamentalism to rally the Muslim masses for establishment of
Islamic state cleansed of other ethnic groups called kafirs (infidels)
in their parlance. Brain washed in POK camps, they let loose a reign
of terror to frighten away the Hindus, who as per formulations in
Zia-plan, represented India and its value system in Kashmir. The
unholy and vicious combine of Islam and Klashnikov led to the
near-total weeding out of all vestiges of humanistic culture of Kashmir
with its roots deeply embedded in the hoary past of Kashmir. The
forces of religious bigotry enjoy absolute sway over Kashmir marking
a water-shed in the history of Muslims having chosen to bid adieu
to indigenous values of humanism for tribalism, barbarity and
medieval thought nuances.

The Jamaat-i-Islami upholding the medieval thought structure as
its guiding-star seeped the virus of Muslim comrnunalism and worst
brand of bigotry inlo the otherwise healthy social and cultural pattern
of Kashmir standing for tolerance, non-violence, mutual
accommodation and good-will. The organisation directly linked with
the Jamaat-i-Islami of Pakistan consistently worked for realisation of
Pak-objectives in Kashmir, both political and religious. With Muslims
as the predominant section of the populace, it made inroads into the
entire polity of Kashmir with a design to realise secession of Kashmir
from the Indian Union by whipping up religious frenzy for jehad. In
the process, the organisation earned patronage from the Muslim first
generation learners, limited in vision and devoid of depth, for
establishment of Prophet's governance. The base of the organisation
found entrenchment and consolidation with the active participation
of the rulers that be.

The establishment of massive plethora of primary and
middle-level schools in areas where education and schooling, prior
to 1947, were the rarest commodity led to the creation of a mass of
school teachers, mostly low level matriculates and middle passes,
nearly semi-literates, falling into the trap of Jamaatist propaganda,
vicious and poisonous in approach and content. Highly motivated
and viciously biased, they poisoned the growing mind-set of the
blooming buds at an early age. Utterly incompetent and worthless in
matters of initiating them in educative processes, they as per their
orientation doled out misconceived ideas about religion and its role
for islamization pogrom. The college and higher secondary school
teachers working under the impact of Jamaat-i- Islami found
encouragement at the level of Muslim bureaucracy committed to the
same myopic ideals. Mohammad Shafi, a Minister in Sheikh's and
Farooq's cabinets, with a track record of turn-coat politics and
deep-set commitments to Jamaat-i-Islami, finally took comfort in the
lap of Muslim fundamentalism only to nourish it from a seedling to
a full branched-out tree. He in his capacity as a minister of education
not only planted Jamaat workers in educational institutions of all
levels but provided them with political shield and patronage. He was
the person, who confronted the Shiekh, when government orders vere
issued to ban all Jamaat-run madarsas in the valley of Kashmir.

The Jamaat-i-Islami as an organisation spearheading Muslim
bigotry and parochialism established its own network of Madarsas
(schools) and study circles running into thousands. Its aims were
political and instruments to realise them were jehad, anti-Hindu
persuasions and myopic conceptual frame. The thought structure as
upheld and propagated by it was in direct opposition to the indigenised
Islam, which had firmer roots in the conceptual ambience of the risis
and non-sectarian Sufis. That is why average Muslims assumed
hostility unto the organisation including its interpretations of the Holy
Text. Operating with single pointedness and with no forces to counter
them, the motivated cadres of the organisation corrupted the mind-set
of the semi-literates working in educational institutions and newly
sprung up professional colleges. The ordinary employees with least
educated mind finding slots in higher echelons of power structure
with the aid of two seniority lists and other communal criteria growing
ambitious of a religious role took refuge under the shield of highly
virile and aggressive expressions of Islamic resurgence and
blind-folded ideological frame of Jamaat-i-Islami. What was worst
for the Muslims as a community that the newly born educated elite
of doctors, engineers, professors and affluent businessmen with links
abroad got rivetted to the medieval thoughtstructure ignoring the
scientific orientation that they were expected to develop by getting
a brush with the broad spectrum of scientific knowledge and
technological developments as a result of greater chances of their
exposure to such developments with their major impact on developing

The Muslim lawyers rooted in absolute Muslim bigotry pandered
the dictates of the Jamaat-i-lslami to establish the Shariat courts. The
Muslims in general were issued a fiat to take their law suits to the
Shariat courts for decisions. With its absolute abhorrence for anything
liberal and modern, the Molvis of the Jamaat held Shariat courts to
settle disputes ranging from talaq to legal suits. What is astounding
that the Muslim lawyers succumbed to the blind forces of Jamaaat
bidding farewell to and parting ways with modern interpretations of
law from non-sectarian and liberal perspectives. Most of the Shariat
courts are said to be bossed over by the Muslim terrorists, who are
by and large semi-literates and the Muslims in general submit to the
decisions of such courts speaking volumes for the Muslim mind.

The Shariat courts are presided over by one Abdul Rahman War,
who flourished under the direct patronage of Mohammad Shafi, a
minister in Sheikh's and Farooq Abdullah's cabinets. Harbouring
hate-love relations with the Minister, he most of the time worked as
his hireling executing his disruptive designs and sometimes deflected
away from him only to find refuge in various political formations
suiting his personal gains and ambitions. Rahman War fought elections
on the ticket of the Muslim United Front, but failed to make it to
the Assembly. Having forged firm links with the Muslim terrorists
and other ISI sponsored subversives, Rahman War was installed as
the Chief custodian of the Muslim religious conscience. He led to
the establishment of a massive network of Shariat courts littered
over the valley of Kashmir.

One branch of such Shariat courts functioning at Soyibugh on
the fringes of the city of Srinagar was presided over by Rahman
War to hear a plaint filed by the locals against a terrorist who had
sex with a cow - a beastly act, to say the least. The case was heard
and the Shariat court held the terrorist guilty and was punished. But
the punishment could not be executed against the gun-totting terrorist
(a Mujahid to Muslims), for obvious reasons. The cow having suffered
the lechery of a brute was declared as polluted and hence to be killed
with specific orders to the Muslims not to eat her flesh. Under a fiat
of the Shaliat court, the polluted cow was pushed down a ditch
killing her instantaneously. The owner of the cow recovered the
carcass, hacked it into pieces and sold it to the Muslims.

These are their "great" Shariat courts !

The doctors with patients littered round them, groaning in pain
and agony, needing their utmost care and attention, said namaz in
the wards of government run hospitals and institute of Medical
Sciences and devoted their vigour and energies to the construction
of mosques in hospitals and that too with maney from public
exchequer, least bothering about their professional ethics. Fleecing
patients at their privately run clinics, they as a device of fraud and
deceit exhibited unprecedented zest for Islam and its ascendancy and
as patients of religious paronnoia raised a bogey of Islam in danger
spearheading religious bigotry and narrowmindedness as a remedy to
the socio-political problems.

The university and college teachers mostly hailing from the homes
of first generation learners, obviously limited in eye range and lacking
in mellowed perspective, fell a prey to the Jamaatist pogrom of the
genocide of Hindus and their conversion as an alternative to genocide
and also secession from India, despite socio-politico-economic
resurgence as a boon of accession to the democratic polity of India.
Despite a university, there is hardly a Muslim deserving the
appellation of an intellectual as academic excellence and depth are
no priorities. One Qayum Rafique, Head of the Department of History,
University of Kashmir, has been withdrawing his published thesis
Sufism in Kashmir from the market under Islamic onslaught as the
book thoroughly exposes some vital facets of Medieval Islam in
Kashmir. The university and college teachers have been responsible
to a larger extent for the spread of Jamaat tentacles deep into the
Muslim fabric by providing leadership role to the organisation rooted
in absolute religious bigotry and obscurantism.

The Muslim engineers living in posh colonies displaying glitz
and glamour of ill gotten wealth and riches have bred corruption,
disseminated corruption and established corruption as the foundation
stone of the Kashmirian society. Most of them being the products of
post-1960 era with a short history of education failed to rise above
the moribund ideological frame and continued to owe allegiance to
any trend of thought manifesting Khomeini brand of adventurism and
religious resurgence with little persuasions for rationalist approach to
the analysis of world developments especially in the domain of
science, technology and positive thought. The band of engineers
patronised Jamaat and its parochial ideology by way of augmenting
its finances from the loot they had made of development funds. The
state government has no hold on the disbursement of moneys tor
execution of development projects and sufficient amounts of it go to
the Muslim engineers, who feed the insurgency in Kashmir.

Suffice it to say that the so called Muslim educated elite
essenlially rooted in medievalism and archaic ideologies with no
proclivities for rationalism and scientific temper wrought havoc with
the Kashmirian fabric. They could have served as beacon lights for
the onward march of society at large, but they got stuck up in the
pools and puddles of Muslim backwardness, parochial thought ways
and obscurantist models for socio-economic regeneration. As patrons
of Muslim extremism and Muslim insulation, they threw a spanner
to the pace of development bringing about a sea-change in the Muslim
society as a whole in terms of socio-economic dynamics fearing the
end of their supremacy over the Muslim social set-up having acquired
new structured hierarchy. That they shied away from contemporary
techna-cultural interface for the achievement of healthy perspectives
in tune with the socio-political demands speaks for the regressive
Muslinn mind keen to get shrunk back into the cocoon of stinking
backwardness and myopia.

The agenda of Muslim insurgency was opened up with archaic
fundamentalist slogans sending deep shivers down the spine of the
Hindu minorities. It marked genocide of Hindus and hounding them
out of Iheir home-land. The main butts of attack were manifestastions
of civilisational growth and development. All liquor shops excepting
those belonging to the Muslims were raided and bottles looted only
to be enjoyed in the privacy of dens. All video-parlours were fiated
to be closed. Anybody daring flout the fiat was to be sprayed over
with bullets. Cinema halls were padlocked. The Muslim women were
fiated to be clad in black veils. Those defying the dress codes were
subjected to brutal atrocities. Their tresses of hair were 'raped' and
what was worst that acid was sprinkled over girls moving about
without veils. Tailors were ordered to sew such clothes as would be
in conformity with their fiats. Cigarette smoking was decreed to be
stopped. Cosmetic shops were closed. The cassettes of film songs
ever on in buses were totally banned and replaced by cassettes
replete with venomous contents of Muslim bigotry and jehad. The
entire Valley was flooded with mini-sized or big-sized wooden boards
with the Quaranic injunctions exhorting to wage a jehad against
infidels, God recompensing the Chazis with abundant fruits on the-
earth and those dying in the process becoming martyrs. Any Muslin-
saluting a Hindu by uttering 'namaskar' was threatened with death.
At the commencement of terrorism dress codes were issued even for
Hindu girls, who disobeyed and openly flouted them. The Hindus
declined to accept any fiat from any ignoramus posing himself as a
self-styled law-giver. Be it said that the Hindus essentially a
community of micro-numbers with no guns to wield expressed their
high pitched hatred and comprehensive contempt for the terrorist fiats
issued by semi-literates with low and murky records of morals, (and
muslims have already had a taste of it), but majority of Muslims
obeyed the. fiats in letter and spirit sensing in them resurgence and
glory of Islam and Islamic law but actually sinking them in the
quagmire of tribalism, fascism and irrationality.

The fundamentalist onslaught touched a new apogee when war
was waged on books as repositories of knowledge and learning.
Libraries throughout the Valley were ransacked only to denude them
of volumes not conforming to the brand of knowledge upheld by the
Jamaat-i-Islami fanatics.l Darwin as an exponent of evolution was
exorcised as Islamic concept of creation is in sharp opposition to
evolutionary perspective.2 All volumes dealing with Darwin's Theory
of Evolution were removed from library shelves only to be destroyed.
Jamaat-oriented teachers organised a protest against the continuation
of Darwin and his Theory on curricula of under-graduate and
post-gradate courses of study thereby underpinning their absolute
contempt for rational expressions to explain the evolotionary growth
and development of man.

In sheer Nazi fashion, two thousand books from the library of
the University of Kashmir were withdrawn,3 thus pruning and
denuding it of most of the books of Shakespeare, Kant, Shopenhaeur,
John Milton, H. G. Wells and George Bernard Shaw. The tomes on
the Indian philosophy as contribution to the realms of global
philosophies were special butts of target and were withdrawn and
mercilessly destroyed.4 The Jamaat-i-Islami launched a barbaric
onslaught on N.C.E.R.T. books with their main accent on rationalism
and cultivation of scientific temper. A library located in Batamallao,
a den of Muslim terrorists, was looted and books destroyed. Some
foot-path sitters selling books on Marx, Angels and volumes on
progressive literature were manhandled and books looted. The library
of the Information Centre run by Government of India was looted
and then put to flames and leaping fires fed by the looted books
after the fashion of Halaku Khan.

Tej Bhan a prominent Hindu writer with a number of publications
to his credit was brutally attacked by the Jamat-i-lslami hoodlums
for his views supporting the evolutionary and sociological
developments of man as unit of social fabric. His publication, Pahchan
was torn to pages in the streets of Baramulla, Kashmir and what was
worst that the police instead of providing him protection pounced
on him and put him in lock-up for three months. The inhuman
treatment meted out to a thinking being attracted the attention of
the Indian Parliament, which thoroughly debated the issue of Tej
Bhan, his publication and his unwarranted detention and stating it as
as a gruesome attack on freedom of expression in a liberal democracy
was unanimous in his unconditional release.5 This was how the
Jamaat-i-Islami cadres, highly biased and narrow-minded, set an
agenda for the worst brand of regimentation to the destruction of all
rational views and expressions.

The Jamaat hoodlums forcibly captured the canteen hall of the
University of Kashmir with a view to converting it into a mosque.
The Department of Central Asian Studies as a seminary of Muslim
fundamentalism conducted myopic and lopsided researches from
Islamic perspectives to the detriment of broad historical and cultural
vision forming the plinth for resurgence of super-structural values
leading to social and religious cohesiveness and harmony. The Iqbal
Institute functioning under the aegis of the University of Kashmir
has set pace for all myopic, narrow-minded and non-secular activities
aiming at secession, social disharmony and religious hatred.

Indiscriminate Killings of the Minority

The terrorists operating under the umbrella of the Jammu and
Kashmir Liberation Front were the first to resort to the dastardly
killings of the Kashmirian Hindus. They in actual praxis are the same
myopic fundamentalist and indoctrinated as the droves of
others affiliated to Hizbul Mujahideen, Allah Tigers.
Ikhwan-UI-Muslimeen, Janbaz Force, et al. Rooted in the
hate Hindu syndrome, the Muslim terrorists as per Zia-plan
postulations started on a virile campaign of harassing, intimidating
and terrorising the Hindus making it amply clear that the Republic
they nursed in their mind had no place for Hindus and others not
subscribing to the faith of Islam. The agenda upheld by the JKLK
terrorists might be the establishment of an Independent Kashmir,
which for all practical purposes is synonymous with annexation to
Pakistan. The Hindus as an ancient community of Kashmir were
denied any station and role-model in the Republic establishing that
it had to come up as an Islamic State. Subscribing to 'ethnic
cleansing', the JKLF terrorists equipped with the highly sophisticated
weaponry took to the wanton killing and butchering of the Hindus
the same way as fish take to water.

The brute gaining supremacy in the Muslim terrorists owing
allegiance to Pakistan-sponsored outfits of all shades was hailed with
loud applause and appreciation by the Muslims, especially their so
called educated elite as a remarkable departure from the Hindu
dominated Kashmirian ethos thereby establishing the crucifixation of
reason and rationality as guides to a balanced, well-meaning and
rational demeanour for purposes of living a corporate social life. The
killings at first appeared selective, but in time gained the fury and
frequency of a hurricane leading to the mass exodus of the hapless

The Muslim terrorists operating from mosques and concrete hide-
outs said to be built with government moneys in Muslim localities
put not fewer than fifteen hundred Hindus to bullets and torture
killings. Some were brutally strangulated with steel wires while many
others were hanged from trees till they were dead. Some were burnt
alive while many were cruelly lynched and fleeced. In most cases,
eyes of the victims were barbarically gouged out repeating the
medieval tortures inflicted on the Hindus by their Muslim captors.
The kidnapped Hindus pushed into the terrorist established
underground hospitals manned by government employed doctors
operating under an overall command of Dr. A. A. Guru, now slain,
were subjected to the atrocity of blood-draining and cast off only to
await death. The Hindu victims of the Muslim brutality were
slaughtered, and their body-limbs broken or dis-membered. The
Hindus, who were captured, were beaten black and blue and then
thrown off as dead into the flowing rivers to meet their watery graves.
Many Hindus were straightaway thrown alive into rivers to get
drowned and killed. Many were tortured by branding with red-hot
iron bars. Tongues of many victims were cruelly chopped off, hands
and feet cut off and bosoms, foreheads and skulls battered and broken
with axes and blunt weapons.

Mr. Tika Lal Taploo, a prominent leader of Bhartiya Janata Par.,
was sprayed over with bullets in a lane nearby his house causing
terror in the entire Hindu dominated locality. His popularity with the
Muslims of the area got established when they in considerable
numbers joined his funeral procession. The Muslim shops remained
closed to mourn his death. But a word from the command circle
room led to the sudden opening of shops.

Mr. Nila Kanth Ganjoo, a retired Sessions Judge, was gunned
down in the Hari Singh High Street in broad day light. Lying in a
pool of blood, with clusters of Muslims watching the ghastly murder,
all in hilarious and up-beat mood, the police prevaricating to arrive
at the scene of murder and quite unusually nobody lifting his body
or covering it with a sheet of cloth, the real Kashmiriyat appeared
in the throes of being born. The charge against the slain judge was
that he had sentenced Maqbool Butt, a Chinese and Pakistan trained
spy and terrorist, to death for the gruesome murder of a Hindu
intelligence officer, Ram Chand, whom he had chopped into bits, put
in a sack and then thrown off. The judge had held him guilty of
murder on the basis of the recorded statements from twenty-two
witnesses, who were Muslims, one and all. The Hmdu judge was
brutally slain and the Muslim witnesses were granted amnesty.

A prominent lawyer, Mr. P. N. Bhatt, hailing from Anantnag,
was mercilessly killed by pumping bullets into his face thereby
exploding his skull. The Muslims inhabiting the neighbourhood of
the scene of foul murder, a lane, chuckled and whispered, 'another
is felled'. Mr. Bhatt's popularity with the Muslims could not save
him from the terrorist wrath and not a single Muslim offered
condolences on his brutal killing. Instead it was hailed as a victory
for Islam.

Mr. Lassa Koul, Director Doordarshan Kendra, Srinagar, was put
to bullets by the JKLF terrorists near the gate of his house at Bemina,
Srinagar, where his old and ailing parents lived. The Doordarsan
Kendra is infested wilh lots of employees, who have known
anti-national credentials and are reportedly responsible for the murder
of the Director. The then Deputy Minister of Information and
Broadcasting has been allegedly responsible for the induction of such
subversive elements into the Doordarshan Kendra, Srinagar.

The gruesome murder of the Kashmirian Hindus at the hands of
the JKLF terrorists is proof sufficient to establish that they are
communally motivaled to cleanse Kashmir of ethnic groups not
attiliated to the Islamic faith. They declared war on the Hindus, who
are un-armed and non-violent, only to annihilate and decimate them,
kill and maraud them, loot and plunder them. Yet there are Indian
ostriches to label them as secular. What a noxious misuse of the
word secular! Could it be asked as to how it was necessary to kill
and maraud Hindus? How would it assist in the processes of
establishing an Independent Kashmir? Was Independent Kashmir
meant for Muslims only?

The genocide of the Hindus started by the JKLF barbarians was
continued unabated by the numerous outfits vigorously executing Pak
designs in Kashmir. The Hindus were maimed, mauled, brutally axed
and put to bullets. The hateful brutalities inflicted in the name of
Islam and Prophet's governance have added new chapters to the book
of barbarism and medievalism.

Mr. Dilip Kumar, a young man of twenty-nine years, hailing
from Zainpora, was kidnapped, his dentures hammered out and twelve
bullets pumped into his body.

Mr. Bal Krishen Tutoo of Sheshiyar, Habbakadal was fired upon
and grievously injured and in a critical condition carried to SMHS
Hospital, Srinagar, a den of terrorists, where Muslim doctors in utter
glee and callousness did not care to attend on him, thus allowing
him to kiss death, marking an eclipse of medical ethics in face of
Muslim ethics. There were scores of Hindus who died for want of
medical care in the government hospital intested wilh psychopaths
masquerading as doctors.

The barbarous terrorists killed Prof. Nila Kanth Lala, M.A.
(History) M.A. (Economics) M.A. (Pol. Science), B.Ed, a veteran
teacher, in the early hours of morning when he along with his family
was boarding a truck to buzz off. The terrorists were none other than
his students, whom he had nurtured and initiated only to drive away
the brute from them. But the brute remained only to take his toll.
In his capacity as a veteran teacher, much in demand, he entered
hundreds of Muslim homes to teach and humanise their sons and
daughters and that is how he was recompensed. Not a single Muslim
shed a tear on his death. What a sad commentary on the Muslim
parents whose wards Prof. Lala had initiated to enable them to live
sixty years as adults and ten years as children!

Mr. Brij Nath Kaul of Shopian in South Kashmir, a driver in
Agriculture University, Shalimar, Srinagar was kidnapped from his
residential quarter along with his wife. Koul in medieval fashion was
tied by his legs with the jeep in which the terrorists were travelling.
The gory spectacle was witnessed by hundreds of god-fearing
Muslims, who in medieval fashion yelled in utter glee that his head
was shattered, his leg was broken, his eye was smashed and his
intestines were out. The grisly and ghastly murder of the Kashmiri
Pandit represented a page from the palimpset of Medieval Islam
high-lighting a true facet for Kashmiriyat projected by Farooq
Abdullah, Saif-ud-din Soz, Ali Shah Geelani and more than most by
Prof. Abdul Gani.

Brij Nath Shah in his fifties hailing from Kupwara was killed
by strangulation. He had got his name tattooed on his fore-arm and
the terrorists erased his name by peeling off the flesh from his
fore-arm. The peeled off flesh was preserved to be used as plaster
for the edifice of Nizam-e-Mustafa.

Mr. Chaman Lal Pandit, a teacher by profession, hailing from
Badgam, was assured of full protection by his Muslim neighbours
and that was how he stayed on in his native village teaching the
Muslim learners only to draw them out of the cesspool of perpetuated
ignorance by imparting them liberal education. He was kidnapped by
the Muslim terrorists, killed and his body thrown on road-side to
invite vultures. Not a single Muslim turned up even for condolences.
Their assurances for his safety vanished like a whiff of vapour.

Five Klashnikov wielders forcibly barged into the house of Mr.
Ashwani Kumar Garyali, Chattabal, Srinagar and fired point blank
at him leaving him in a pool of blood. His father, weeping and
wailing, rushed to the local police station for a vehicle to carry him
to hospital. The S.H.O., a Muslim, avoided and prevaricated and the
poor father went on begging him for a vehicle. The Muslim officer
taunted the Kashmiri Pandit, perhaps, not realising that he was a part
and parcel of the genocide of Hindus.

The same terrorists kidnapped Messers Chaman Lal Koul and
Som Nath Raina, and strangulated them to death.

Mr. Ashok Kumar, a young man of thirty years, hailing from
Pulwama, was kidnapped by armed Muslim terrorists and broke all
his body parts. Imploring for mercy, the terrorists carried him to the
main crossing of the road and gouged his eyes with steel bars in
presence of hundreds of Muslims got collected to witness the
gruesome spectacle.

Mr. Ashok Kumar Qazi, 32 year old, was caught hold of by the
terrorists on the main road of Tankipora, Srinagar and was mercilessly
beaten with iron rods and huge sticks and dragged into a lane where
his legs were broken and was thrown inta a drain, shrieking and
gasping. Nobody picked him up and the terrorists re-appeared on the
scene only to shoot him to death.

Mr. Ramesh Kumar Bhatt hailing from Shopian was kidnapped
from SMHS Hospital, less of a hospital and more a terrorist den,
and was subjected to the atrocity of breaking his legs, chopping off
his tongue and inflicting burns by cigarettes. He was rescued by
CRPF jawans from the riverbed where he was cast off in a state of
unconsciousness by the cruel terrorists. He is a pulsating proof of
Muslim terrorism and barbarity.

Mr. Avtar Krishen, hailing from Pulwana, was kidnapped and
kept in captivity for a number of days. He was subjected to torture
by cigarette burns and by peeling off his skin. Finally the Kafir's
abdomen was ripped open and thrown off on a road side, thus marking
a victory for Islam.

Mr. R. K. Razdan, a resident of Chattabal, Srinagar was kidnapped
and fleeced with a plastic insulated telephone wire. He fell
unconscious and the terrorists taking him as dead threw him into the
Jehlum. Gaining consciousness, Razdan crept towards the road only
to be rescued by the BSF Jawans. His body bore cigarette burns and
deep-cut wounds inflicted by sharp-edged weapons.

Mr. Man Mohan Bhatt of Qazi Hamam, Baramulla, was taken
by some of his Muslim friends to a tea-shop for a cup of tea. He
was assaulted upon and kept in captivity and killed. His dead body
was thrown from a vehicle on the road. All joints of his body were
battered. There were multiple injuries on the muscles of bis arms
and was put to hullets as well.

Mr. A.K. Raina, Deputy Director, Food and Supplies, Srinagar
was killed by the terrorists in his office chambers. Raina lay in a
pool of blood and his subordinates, all Muslims, witnessed the gory
murder gleefully. In reality, the schedule of killings used to be well
within the knowledge of the Muslims working in government offices
or living in various localities establishing a close nexus between the
killers and bigoted Muslims.

Prof. K.L. Ganjoo, a wellknown agricultural scientist, had a
number of Muslim friends and students whom he had taught and
initiated. Pandits fleeing from their localities had failed to make an
impress on him as he was assured of total protection by his Muslim
friends and taught. He had been to Kathmandu on an assignment for
a short period and returned to his native town only in March, 1990.
Prof Ganjoo was kidnapped and subjected to horrific brutalities by
his Muslim friends and students, now turned frenzied terrorists. He
was ultimately asked to walk into the river Jehlum without looking
back; and he did look back wher he feared to get drowned and the
bartarous terrorists fired volleys af bullets to end his life. The Muslim
psychopaths relished Prof. Ganjoo's helplessness and pathetic state
to the last dregs of it and it was only to establish Prophet's governance
in Kashmir.

Mrs. Prana Ganjoo, wife of Prof. K. L, Ganjoo, was kidnapped
and gang-raped by the Muslim psychopaths. Her breasts were chopped
off and as per police reports she had no body-limb intact and that
was why her body was not handed over to her relatives for last rites.
The police have declared her dead. But intriguingly her dependants
have not been paid compensation so far. But many believe that she
is in the captivity of the terrorists, who have converted her to Islam.

Mr. Joginder Malhotra called out from his house was carried off
in a gypsy. He was tortured and killed. His body was terribly mutilated
and was beyond recognition. The Muslim hounds had dotted his
testicles and other body parts with cigarette burns. There were stab
injuries also dotting his mutilated body.

Mr. Virendra Bhatt, a junior engineer, hailing from Nagam, fought
a duel with a terrorist, who took out a pistol to shoot at him. But
other accomplices fired at him from point blank range only to leave
him bleeding profusely. The Muslim shopkeepers and neighbours
watched the ugly murder, perhaps regimented to believe that
Nizam-e-Mustafa was round the corner and murder of a Kafir was
the only means to achieve and establish it.

Mr. D. N. Mujoo, a scholar, philosopher and theosophist, was a
retired headmaster, who throughout his distinguished career as a
teacher had taught thousands of Muslim scholars in the schools he
had served. He was a life long member of the Women's Welfare
Trust, Kashmir, the first institution to establish schools in Kashmir
for women of all religious shades under the umbrella of the
Theosophical Society, Kashmir Shaivism, <strong>Theosophy</strong> and J.
Krishnamurti were his forte. The terrorists, a pack of hounds, forcibly
entered his residence at Rawalpora and slit his throat only to bleed
him to death. He was fairly an old man, weak, infirm and emaciated.
But Muslim fury knows no humanistic considerations and the cruelty
of slitting his throat open was an essential cog in the establishment
of Prophet's governance in Kashmir.

Mr. Ved Lal Ganjoo. Principal, Govt. Higher Secondary School,
Sopore fell a victim to armed Muslim bigotry. He was killed in
his office chambers and all Muslim teachers having strong ties with
Jamaat-i-Islami conspired to get him brutally killed. The principal
had a distinguished career as a teacher and was known for his
dedication lo the cause of education. And the Muslim terrorists cruelly
killed him as he was a Kafir (infidel) with no place in Nizam-e-Mustafa.

Mr. Sarwanand Koul Premi, a retired headmaster, resident of
Anantnag, was confident of withstanding the Islamic hurricane as he
had taught every dog in the village and hence could not be so
ungrateful as to bite him. He had a brilliant service career and had
held aloft the banner of love, affection, tolerance and good will. He
was a poet and creative writer. He had the distinction of translating
the Bhagvat Gita into Kashmiri language in metrical verse thereby
adding richness and variety to the language. But, the Muslim terrorists
had already drawn plans for his killing. Some of them called at his
house asking him to accompany them for a word. As the genocide
of the Hindus had already begun, his family wailed and moaned. He
was taken away and his son, Virender Koul, insisting to accompany
his father, was also carried off. Both of them were subjected to
horrendous tortures. A nail was driven at the spot where he put a
tilak -mark. His eyes were gouged out and body-limbs broken and
was hanged from a tree for everybody to witness the grisly murder.
His hairs were uprooted and body skin burnt and fleeced. His son
was meted out the same atrocious treatment.

Premi was a poet holding fast to the Advaita concept of 'I am
truth'. He was another Mansur butchered by the Muslim bigots for
the world-view he harboured and firmly clung to. Like Mansur, he
was a paragon of virtue working for the moral upliftment of all. But
the Muslim bigotry cannot permit dissent and shades of free thinking.

Premi had a good library consisting of masterly works by eminent
authors, scholars and poets. Besides Vedas, the Mahabarata, the
Ramayan and the Bhagwatgita, he had a copy of the Quran, which
caused tremendous amazement to the local boors and mercenary
Afghans destroying his books and manuscripts after the Muslim

Mr. D. N. Chowdhary, manager pre-cast cement factory, Wuyan
was kidnapped from his office in presence of three Muslim officers.
He was subjected to the worst-ever brutalities and tortures. His hands
were cruelly broken and his tongue chopped off. His face was
scarred and burnt by moving a red-hot iron-press on it. His eyes
were gouged out. His body was thrown at a nearby village, Lethopora
on Srinagar-Anantnag highway. It was an open exhibition of brutal
savagery and atrocities inflicted on genial tempered Chowdhary
would shame all the savages in the world.

Numberless Hindu women were put to barbarous treatment by
the Muslim terrorists. The tortures inflicted on them are unheard of
even in the darkest period of medieval history. They were molested,
raped and massacred only to establish the hatred the Muslim terrorist,
harboured against the Hindus in general.

Miss Kumari Babli and her mother, Shrimati Roopwati, were
kidnapped from Pulwama. Both of them were gang-raped and
strangulated and their dead bodies thrown on the road, thus marking
a big triumph for Islam and Nizam-e-Mustafa.

Shrimati Girija working in a government school in Bandipora
had gone to collect her-pay from the school office. After collecting
her salary, she called on her Muslim colleague in the same locality.
Her movements were watched by the terrorists, who kidnapped her
from the Muslim house. The Muslim colleague along with her parents
did not even protest for the simple fact that she was a Hindu lady,
a Kafir, the possession of whose body was halal. She was brutally
gang-raped, stripped, placed on a bandsaw and chopped into two
equal halves. And the brutalised Muslim terrorists committed the
heinous crime far establishing a political system as conceived in their

Shrimati Sarla Bhatt, a low grade nurse working in the Institute
of Medical Sciences, Soura, Srinagar was suspected to be aware of
the terrorist activities planned by Dr. A. A. Guru, now slain and his
cohorts in the Medical Institute. Sarla once by chance while on her
duty was said to have overheard the conversation between Dr. Guru
and Hamid Sheikh, Deputy Commandant of JKLF, now slain. Taken
as an informer, she was eliminated at the behest of Dr. Guru, who
had asked the nurse to go on leave but had not obliged him. Ashraf
Chalkoo, a hawker from Baramulla, comrade-in-arms of Dr. Guru,
along with many Muslim psychopaths raped her. Stripping her naked
and slitting open her private parts, Sarla was brutally murdered an
cast off on a road-side, thus installing a corner stone for the structure
of Nizam-e-Mustafa.

The genocide of the Kashmirian Hindus as planned by ISI and
executed by the wilful Muslim terrorists was the epilogue to the
bloody saga actually begun in 14th cenlury. The killings of men and
women tellingly establish the cruel and inhuman tortures inflicted by
terrorists on the Hindus. Accusing them of being informers, they
launched upon their genocide, forcing the entire community to take
to its heels without knowing where to take shelter. The brutalities
perpetrated on them could not but frighten and chill the community
to its bones. The fragile community was denuded of its brilliant men
and women for no fault of it. The killings if done in other parts of
the world would have raised world-wide protests. But, to the dismay
of the Kashmirian Hindus, the state government in absolute shambles
presided over by the bigoted Muslims connived at and abetted the
genocide of the Hindus. Every effort was made to hoodwink the
Indian public opinion by hiding the anti-Hindu thrust of the terrorist
violence. The religious sentiments of the Hindus were deeply hurt
by not handing over the dead bodies of hundreds of slain Hindus
for last rites to their kith and kin residing in camps littered over the
country. The spineless Government of India, too, seems to have a
vested interest in concealing the genocide of the Hindus in Kashmir
and inhuman and barbarous indignities and atrocities heaped on them.

The civilised world sensitive to the human rights violations was
kept in the dark about the massacre of the Kashmirian Hindus and
horrendous torture inflicted on them. The civilised world is not aware
of the fact that the Hindu women were kidnapped at gun-point,
gang-raped, stripped naked and mercilessly butchered and hot iron
seals bearing the expression JKLF and Pakistan Zindabad forged on
their mangled bodies. That hundreds of missing women are in the
captivity of the Muslim terrorists and their active collaborators was
never highlighted by the powers that be. The plight of 3 lakh Hindus
thrown out of their age-old homes and hearths living like worms in
drains was never put on world focus. The Muslim terrorists wielding
highly sophisticated and deadly weapons only to realise fundamentalist
objectives were not projected before the world fora and opinion
moulding bodies with a view to exposing their evil designs for ethnic
cleansing in Kashmir.

The state administrative setup conniving and abetting the genocide
of the Hindus has been extremely hostile to the Hindus. But the
ostriches of the echelons of power in the central Capital as a matter
of design put a cover over the genocide of the Hindus and played
it down as if Thames had not been on flames. The state bureaucracy
and the central leaders appear to be on the same wave length, the
former aiding the processes of genocide, loot and plunder of the
Hindus and the latter providing it a cover only to conceal the battered
and tattered fabric of Indian secularism from the public view. No
strenuous effort can hide the reality that the Kashmirian Muslims
harbouring visceral hatred against the Hindus did not tolerate 2%
miniscule minority of the Hindus and hounded them out only to
reduce Kashmir to a 'green ghetto'. The democratic and patriotic
forces in the country must realise and awaken to the reality that the
Muslims if in minority have pretensions for secularism and it in
majority violently work for the establishment of an Islamic state.
What was the fault of the Kashmirian Hindus ? Have they killed a
single Muslim ? Why were they brutally massacred and tortured and
their women-folk reviled, molested and raped? The world fora were
never informed that the Kashmirian Hindus were hounded out as a
prelude to the inaugural of a political system put on the foot-stool
of Shariat (Islamic law).

Open Loot and Destruction of Property

The Hindus of Kashmir throughout their chequered history have
been subjected to frequent bouts of loot and plunder. The savage
tribes of Bombas and Khokhas as per the historical records were
hired by the Muslim bigots to loot and plunder the Hindus and in
case of resistance they were ordained to be burnt alive in their houses.
The same instinct of ferocity, aggression and savagery re-emerged
and re-surfaced through the length and breadth of Kashmir in the
wake of the forcible exodus of the Kashmirian Hindus from the
bosom of their native land.

As per the available data, 3 lakh Hihdus fled their homes and
hearths only to save themselves from terrorist brutalities. They knew
not where to take shelter and refuge. The armed Muslim hounds
had launched upon a crusade against them designed to extirpate
infidelity from Kashmir. The young and the old, the weak and the
strong, the deaf and the dumb, the sane and the insane, men and
women were put to bullets, untold tcrtures and agonies, medieval
barbarities and savageries. The Hindus all in panic and terror boarded
the first available bus or truck to go across the Bannihal Jawahar
Tunnel leaving their house-hold goods and articles in their homes
with doors locked and windows shut and barred.

The loot and plunder of the Kashmirian Hindu homes was
organised by the Muslim bigots with mosques as focal centres. The
goods looted were collected and stuffed in them and later on
distributed among the looters as booty leaving a tithe of it to augment
the resources of the mosques. The droves of looters and plunderers
are said to be not the anti-social and undesirable elements, but men
who can be termed as prosperous by all standards. The fury of the
looters was discernible when doors, windows and gates were either
broken, removed or openings made only to break into the Hindu
houses. The Muslims overpowered by predators and aggressive
persuasions and traits indulged in loot and plunder with vengefulness.
There is not a single Hindu home in the Valley of Kashmir which
has not been looted and plundered with impunity. There are certain
areas which have been subjected to a looting spree not only once
but ten times. All the Hindu houses in the locality of Rainawari
which was allowed to be under a siege of the terrorists have been
subjected to loot and plunder umpteen times, thus denuding each
house of its goods and articles essential for living a normal and
comfortable life.

The Muslim looters and plunderers removed beddings, kitchen
ware, gas cylinders, gas stoves, ordinary stoves, mats, rugs,
furnishings, curtains, carpets, gabbas, namdas, beds, chairs, wooden
and steel sofas, sewn suits, suit lengths, cravats, shirts, pulovers,
phirans especially newly sewn, saris, pashmina shawls, blankets,
footwear, salwar and kameez meant for girls, watches, wall clocks,
radio-sets, tv-sets, tape recorders, trunks, briefcases, suit cases, copper
ware, brass ware, tea- sets, sewing machines, jewellery and gold
ornaments from the homes of the Kashmirian Hindus. It is a loot
and open loot reminiscent of tribal societies stunted at the lowest
rung of the civilisational ladder.

The Muslim plunderers motivated by their acquired tribal traits
removed doors, windows, inner wooden ceilings, electric fittings,
roofs, sinks, wash basins and geysers from Hindu houses. Copper
vessels meant for warming water covered by cement and sunk in
bricks were dug out and looted. Water pipes laid underground and
over-ground for supply of drinking water to the houses were dug out
and savagely looted. The houses already looted and denuded of all
house-hold goods by one drove leaving nothing for other droves to
loot were vengefully and sadistically damaged by scratching of walls,
breaking of window and door fixtures, mirrors fixed in walls, and
photographs of dead parents and gods and goddesses hung against
walls. The looters motivated by tribal culture removed steel and
wooden almirahs and other heavy brass pots in hand-driven carts.
The prowlers reducing a civilised society to the lowest ebb openly
looted and plundered the Hindu houses not at nights but in broad
daylight fearing none as all shared the booty. The Hindu-houses
surrounded by the Muslims were not subjected to one swoop, but
were denuded of all possessions at a leisurely pace. In such localities
loot was organised by women squads owing allegiance to the

Thc Hindu houses yet standing and not put to flames have been
illegally occupied and thus grabbed by the Muslims. The Muslims
living in such houses keep on shifling from house to house along
with the residual booty they lay their hands on. At the very inception
of insurgency, the Hindu houses under the nose of their owners were
marked red only for distribution as booty among the faithfuls and as
of now are under Muslim occupation revealing the Muslim mind
harbouring designs to decimate the Hindus.

The Hindu shops throughout the Valley have been looted and
plundered or illegally grabbed by the Muslims. The orchards and
tracts of cultivable land owned by the Hindus have been grabbed
by the Muslim neighbours, selling the produce and thus cornering
huge sums, leaving a part of it for the apex body organising the
loot and plunder of the Hindu properties. The agriculture
commissioner, Mr. Vijay Baqaya in his meet the press programme
has reportedly said that orchards belonging to the Hindus are being
looked after by their neighbours and relatives. Who are their
neighbours ? Who are their relatives ? They are all decaying and
eking out existence in the squaldid camps in Jammu and elsewhere.
Mr. Baqaya's statement is highly misleading. The fact remains that
the Muslim looters have looted and plundered the Hindu properties
and grabbed their orchards and cultivable lands. The warning issued
by the JKLF terrorists to vacate the Hindu properties is a testimony
to the grabbing of their properties by none other than the Muslims.

A community harbouring a mere pretence to canons of civilised
behaviour cannot even think of looting, plundering and grabbing the
properlies of their neighbours. Are there credal canons motivating
the Muslim looters to loot and plunder the properties of the Hindus
and that too in their absence? The objectivity of the situation cannot
deter an independent observer from coming to the conclusion that
the looters mark an eclipse of rationality and sanity for a community
allowing such an open loot and plunder of their Hindu neighbours
whose joys and sorrows it zestfully shared and partook. And there
is a Shaha-bu-din still drawing comfort from a non-fact that the
fleeing Hindus handed over the keys of their houses to their Muslim

The looted properties from the Hindu homes were openly sold
and auctioned. And there were buyers all available for them. The
booty was openly sold to the buyers at throw-away prices. What is
amazing that no rational Muslim motivated by human sensibilities
could raise his voice in protest against the sale of booty establishing
it as a throw-back proclivity to the abysmal levels of tribal barbarity.
For a tribal booty is sweet and its sale is sweeter.

The 'ethnic cleansing' remains incomplete if the roots of the
Kashmirian Hindus are not decimated and destroyed and roots remain
embedded in the houses as expressions of human personality. The
Muslim terrorists and their accomplices have been relentless in
destroying the houses belonging to the Kashmirian Hindus. Such ten
thousand houses have been cruelly set ablaze till date. A detailed
catalogue of gutted houses bearing locations and FIRs was submitted
lo the erstwhile Home Minister of India, M.M. Jacob, who could not
doubt the authenticity of it as it was replete with and supported by
all relevant details and descriptions. The terrorists are vengefully
burning the Hindu houses with a view to reducing the Kashmirian
Hindus to the status of nomads, destroying their roots and moorings
and sealing all opportunities of their return to their native land. Their
communal motivations become discernibly clear that they have not
burnt a single house belonging to the Muslims who have migrated
to various parts of India for lucrative business and sabotage.

A squad leaving the precincts of a mosque on a burning spree
is followed by another squad only to remove doors and windows,
logs and planks of wood, stones and bricks and other building
materials for building their structures with the looted booty or get
money by putting them to sale. The grand old house of Dr. Brij
Bihari Kachru, a renowned linguist working in the University of
Illinios, USA was set ablaze and continued to be burning for days
on end. The house was burning and loot was going on. The looters
were elated and extremely gaga that they could lay their hands on
most modern gadgets and sophisticated devices. Arson and loot as
ingredients of an ethos appear astounding to men of culture and
civilised upbringing.

Burning of Books and Temples Of Learning

The looters breaking into the Hindu homes were extremely
amazed to find piles of books and manuscripts stocked in them. In
their utter bigotry and vitriolic wrath, the books were either stolen
or torn or burnt. The libraries owned by prominent Hindu lawyers
in towns and cities were looted and plundered whole hog. Their loot
was allegedly organised bv their rivals in the profession. A Muslim
with pretensions of being an artist organised Muslim terrorists to loot
the brilliant sketches of priceless value from the house of a young
Hindu artist, who had died much before the rise of terrorism in
Kashmir. Heaps of books were torn and the mutilated pages scattered
over the rooms and compounds of the ravaged houses. Medical books
looted from Hindu houses were sold off for petty sums to the Muslim
retailers, who convert their pages into cones to be stuffed with small
quantities of tea, salt, spices et al. The works of Karl Marx, Engels,
Hindu classics on religion and philosophy, Rajtaranginis and other
magnum opuses were ruthlessly torn or burnt underpinning absolute
contempt for books as repositories of knowledge and learning.

The Muslim terrorists, mostly drop-outs, kalbafs (weavers),
bakers, vegetable-sellers, milk-men, butchers, domestic servants,
plumbers, shoe shines et al have consistently worked to the end of
pushing Kashmir into DarkAges and their wild onslaught coupled
with high-pitched hatred is against books and all levels of educational
institutions as temples of learning. The entire network of Hindu
institutions established by the Hindu visionaries has been mercilessly
destroyed along with the precious collections of manuscripts in Sharda
Script in such institutions. The entire complex of Vishwa Bharti
Institution established and manned by the Hindu minority was first
blasted and then torched. The Rupa Devi Shardapeeth established by
a Hindu scholar and philanthropist was set ablaze by the Muslim
vandals. The institution had a rare collection of Sanskrit manuscripts,
which were destroyed, thus inflicting an incalculable damage on the
cultural history of Kashmir. The Vassanta Girls High School as the
first institution serving the educational needs of women of all hues
was set to fire by the Muslim marauders with all vengefulness. The
Gandhi Memorial College as a minority institutiion was ravaged and
set ablaze for the nomenclature it bore. The D. A. V. Higher
Secondary School, Rainawari, Srinagar serving as a tower of learning
and enlightenment was put to fire by the Muslim Boors. The Muslim
philistines have sadistically relished the total decimation of
infrastructure for manpower development laid out in post-1947 era.

With a view to focussing on the Muslim abhorrence of knowledge
and scholarship, it will be pertinent to allude to the demonstrations
in Srinagar against a tome titled as Book Of Knowledge authored by
a European scholar. The Muslim termed the book as blasphemous
and that was sufficient for the book to be banned. The goons in the
demonstration catching hold of a French, urinating in a lonely corner,
yelled to ban 'Book of Knowledge' and lashed his hands and bare
legs with prickly nettles and pat came the reply from the Frenchman,
'Why ban Book of Knowledge only, ban all knowledge.' The
prophetic words of the Frenchman have come true as the Muslim
terrorists sunk in abysmal depths of ignorance and backwardness
operating under the over-all command of Afghan, Libyan, Kuwaiti,
Pakistani and Saudi Arabian mercenaries have burnt temples of
learning with impunity thus depriving the Kashmirians of having a
brush with knowledge and learning. The terrorist fiat of 'no
discussion' smacking of Muslim fascism has led to the drowning of
all vestiges of rational thinking in the Muslims, who are driven as
a flock by the ISI subversives and criminals and foreign boors
reducing them to the condition of one dimensional, inert, stunted and
brain washed individuals.
