Our Moon Has Blood Clots Summary
Journalist Rahul Pandita’s book “Our Moon Has Blood Clots” makes you angry at the plight of Kashmiri Pandits, who are refugees in their own land. “This book provides new insight into one of our history’s most destructive wars,” says renowned historian Ramachandra Guha. Every word in this engrossing tale rings true.
Pandita’s work exposes the charade of a “secular” democracy, as well as its intellectual elite, candlelight brigade, bleeding heart activists, and, most significantly, the silent majority. When Pandita, now 36, was 14 years old, he was forced to escape his birthplace of Srinagar, Kashmir’s capital. It was the year 1990. This happened during the harsh winter of that year. Kashmiri Pandits, who make up less than 5% of all people in Kashmir, had to leave their homes.
It took 20 years for this storey to be told. The world is aware of the region’s separatist goals and the Indian Army’s atrocities, but the Pandit storey has been untold until now. In the early 1990s, those who resided in Kashmiri Pandits’ ancient houses were expelled in less than three months. They were usually educated, hard-working, and peaceful people from the middle class.
Pandita recounts the horrific carnage carried out by Islamist radicals in Kashmir. The savagery with which the attacks were carried out reminds me of what happened to Jews in Europe, Christians in Armenia, and people of Indian heritage in Uganda under the tyranny of Idi Amin. Pandita’s devastating first-hand account shows how decision-makers failed to avoid the calamity. Human rights activists, international peacemakers, public intellectuals, politicians, and even “mainstream” media journalists carried on as if the crisis had never happened. Since talking about the killing of Kashmiri Pandits could have made them look less “secular,” they didn’t.
Pandita’s writing style is straightforward, and he avoids making his stories too dramatic. He spares no one, notably the Hindu Right, which gains political mileage by sometimes bringing up the subject of Hindus in Kashmir. Pandita comes to the conclusion that political parties are reticent to do more to help the victims.
When displaced Kashmiri Pandits come to Jammu, other Hindus take advantage of them right away. They anticipate being treated with compassion and care in the Hindu-majority region, but harsh landlords take advantage of them, and a vicious culture humiliates them.
Pandita has no compassion for Kashmiri Muslims who remain silent as their Hindu neighbours and friends are hunted down and slain. He gives several examples of Muslim neighbours who have severely oppressed him. Prime Minister K Gujral is told by a 14-year-old kid that his family was murdered with the cooperation of his neighbours, and that they should not be allowed to touch the remains.
The book is replete with stories of neighbours turning on their neighbours, friends cooperating with persecutors, childhood pals rapping and killing vulnerable Pandit women, and even police cooperating with cold-blooded murders. She debunks the idea that Jagmohan Singh, the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, ordered the Pandits to go in order to defame Muslims and murder rebels during their exodus. This, according to Pandita, is not the case.
Pandita has seen a number of atrocities. Since the expulsion of 95 percent of Kashmir’s Pandit population two decades ago, the government has done little to help them heal their wounds and return to their homeland.
“Such things happen,” CPM leader HKS Surjeet remarked plainly as the terrified Pandits started to depart. This exposes the callousness of the Left’s intellectual and political elite, who are unconcerned with the suffering of Pandits. When the victims aren’t part of a vote bank or don’t share a certain political ideology, incidents like these occur.
“Our Moon is Filled with Blood Clots” is a courageous attempt to counter falsehoods with the truth. It conveys discontent with a government that utters lofty platitudes while doing little to protect its downtrodden population. This is a fascinating book that screams for answers.
