The centre has expressed concern over the rising tide of intolerance in Kashmir. The desecration of temples is just the latest in the growing list of attacks on pilgrims and protests directed against proposals to resettle Hindu community in the state.
These attacks and protests have gone largely uncommented upon. The liberal league that had expressed outrage against Afzal Guru and Yakub Memon’s hanging, had termed attacks on churches as intolerance has been conspicuously silent.
In fact there has been not even a squeak from the JNU liberal lobby on these events. Not just activists but the silence extends to the leading national parties like the Congress, AAP, NC, PDP, Left that have done nothing to stand up for the rights of the Hindus who find themselves on the receiving end in Jammu and Kashmir.
