26 years ago on the 19th of January began the forced exodus of lakhs of Kashmiri Pandits from their homeland. Pushed out by militant violence and direct threats, the Pandits were forced to become people without a state in their own country, with families pushed into migrant camps and one-room tenements.
Over the years, every party has paid lip service to the return of Pandits, but more than two decades later there has been virtually no progress on creating an environment that would enable their homecoming.
