A Departure From History: Kashmiri Pandits, 1990-2001

Title:A Departure From History: Kashmiri Pandits, 1990-2001
Author:Alexander Evans
Publication:Contemporary South Asia / Routledge, part of the Taylor & Francis Group
Enumeration:Vol. 11, No. 1, pp.19 - 37 /March 01, 2002
Abstract:Most Kashmiri Pandits living in the Kashmir Valley left in 1990 as militant violence engulfed the state. Some 95% of the 160,000-170,000 community left in what is often described as a case of ethnic cleansing. Why did they leave? What political movements have followed? Much of the present focus is on those who have left, but the small minority who remain in the Kashmir Valley may be more important in determining what kind of society Kashmir becomes.
