Don’t forget the Pandits

Ramachandra Guha in A history of abuse (May 27) says that the Kashmir story is well known. But I think any analysis that does not take into account the exodus of Pandits from the Valley is incomplete.

Ramachandra Guha in A history of abuse (May 27) says that the Kashmir story is well known. But I think any analysis that does not take into account the exodus of Pandits from the Valley is incomplete. The exodus of the Pandits has no parallels in modern India, so I understand the limitations when making any comparison. But not referring to them at all while talking about the state amounts to suppression of facts.

Bravo, Maulana

Apropos of the editorial Muslim in the mainstream (May 27), I must congratulate the paper for encouraging Muslim youth. The author has rightly pointed out that modern education can play a prominent role in bringing about the much-needed change among Muslims in India. Maulana Waseemur Rahman can be a role model for young Muslims. Now it is up to the madrassas to overhaul their curriculum and come up with courses that can help Muslims compete at the highest level.

Music for peace

Neelesh Misra’s article Sound Track Diplomacy (May 27) shows that things we take for granted elsewhere in India comes at a premium in Kashmir. The way the crowd responded to Junoon’s performance proves that like everyone else, the Kashmiris too want to live a normal and happy life.

Justice at last

Appropos of the editorial No longer alone (May 29), the verdict in the Nitish Katara murder case has once proved that no power can save the guilty. The judgments in the Priyadarshini Mattoo, Shivani Bhatnagar and Nitish Katara cases show that those who try to hold the establishment and law to ransom cannot get off scot-free.

It is heartening to note that even with a justice delivery system like ours, there are people who are ready to fight till the end. Kudos to the media for keeping the focus on these cases.
