There were several reports of violence in different parts of the country which was in the midst of Ram Navami celebrations:

* West Bengal’s Raniganj and Asansol faced serious violence with at least 2 people dead, police officers injured and several shops burnt. There are reports that a police office lost their right hand as a bomb was thrown at them.

* In Jharkhand’s Bokaro and Hazaribagh district, there were stone throwing at the processions with an attempt to stop them.

* There are likely other smaller and unreported or locally reported incidents.

So one needs to ask why such repeated violence during auspicious celebrations? Are those groups of people trying to put a stop to these? Could this violence lead to a retaliation? These are questions we need to ask after 70 years of independence in a free and vibrant country.

In 1989-90, with Rajiv Gandhi as PM and Farooq Abdullah as CM, 400,000 Kashmiri Pandits, Sikhs & Others FACED GENOCIDE - were slaughtered or forced to leave Kashmir overnight. "The Kashmir Files" shows only a small part of this. Should a Kashmir Genocide Law be made and the atrocities be fully investigated?

आपकी राय

1989-90 में, राजीव गांधी के प्रधान मंत्री और फारूक अब्दुल्ला के मुख्यमंत्री के रूप में, 400,000 कश्मीरी पंडितों, सिखों और अन्य लोगों को नरसंहार का सामना करना पड़ा - या तो रातों-रात कश्मीर छोड़ने के लिए मजबूर होना पड़ा । "द कश्मीर फाइल्स" इसका एक छोटा सा हिस्सा ही दिखाता है। क्या कश्मीर में हुए नरसंहार पर कानून बनाया जाना चाहिए और अत्याचारों की पूरी जांच होनी चाहिए?
