On July 10th Two to three Kashmiri Muslim Jihadis of Hizbul Mujhaideen carried out an attack on Amarnath pilgrims and killed 7 innocent Hindus. 5 women and two men were among the dead. Our home minister was the first person to raise the tempo of ‘Kashmiriyat’ after the attack. Government in order to cover up the incident blamed Lashkar e Toyiba terrorist’s from Pakistan for the attack instead of the local Kashmiri Muslim terrorists. Government also tried to cover up another attack carried out by the same group of terrorists on 6th July. On July 6th a Grenade was hurled in an Amarnath Yatri bus in which a Yatri got killed and scores of them were injured, Government in order to cover up this attack said the blast happened because of a cylinder explosion.
This wasn’t the first attack on Amarnath Yatris by Islamists. The very first attack that was carried out by Islamic terrorists against Amarnath going Hindus were in the year 1994 and ironically that attack was also carried out in the month of July but the date was 17th of July. A Hindu Sadhu was abducted from the ‘Anantnag Bus stand’ by the ‘Harkat ul Ansar’ terrorists and was taken to an isolated place where they tortured him and then hanged him from a tree.
There was no protest anywhere in India against his killing; his life meant nothing for anyone. After his killing a series of terrorist attack rocked the Amarnath pilgrimage.
- On August 2nd 2000, Some 32 people including 21 Hindu Yatris were killed by Lashkar E Toyiba terrorists.
- On July 20th 2001, A Grenade attack killed 13 people including 6 Yatris at Seshnag Camp.
- On July 30th 2002, 3 Yatris were killed by Terrorists when they attacked a taxi in which they were travelling.
- On 6th August 2002, 9 Yatris were killed at Pahalgam.
All these attacks were carried out by Pakistan sponsored Islamic Terrorist groups but till today, ‘India’ hasn’t punished the real perpetrators, be it ‘Hafiz Sayeed’ or ‘Maulana Masood Azhar’ both of these Jihadi lords has blood of tens of thousands of Hindus on their hands.
