A request to Dr. Pipes

Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?

Submitted by Rash (United States), Feb 24, 2004 at 17:43

I am an Indian citizen, Hindu by religion. I accidentally came across your site and since then, subscribed to it. I often come across your articles on Israel and Palestine conflict and I often find that I agree with the same. I am neither a religious person nor a fundamentalist or a fascist. I came across Mr. Srinivas's comment regarding the genocide ( nothing but that) of Kashmiri Hindus in the present day.

I am neither a politician nor a big personality, just an ordinary , law abiding honest citizen. But the inhuman massacre and killing and displacing of the Kashmiri Hindus have left a deep impact on my mind. If a person like you, and of your calibre, would be in a position to put to the western world the truth about the terrorist activities of these Islamic terrorists , it would certainly help in projecting the problem in true light.

My only request to you would be to publish only facts regarding the Kashmir issue, because I find that often, the western media ( for some reason ) is heavily biased and does not do any justice to the hapless Kashmiri Hindus. I would also request to you, if possible to highlight how the Hindus were driven out by Muslims during the partition and what they had to go through. It will make the Jewish holocaust and the Israeli conflict look sober.

Not mentioning the genocide and killing of Hindus which continues unabated for the last 1000 years in the whole region extending from Afghanistan to modern day India.

The tragedy of our media is that they are not inclined to publish the truth in black and white and as it is.

Any feedback on this would be welcome.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I agree with you that the Kashmiri Pandits have been subjected to a horrible fate and that this has not received its due attention. But I am not the one to do so, as Kashmir is beyond my area of specialization.
