Good News from the Valley: Insaaniyat for Pandits and Yatris

Good News from the Valley: Insaaniyat for Pandits and Yatris 

कश्मीर में कर्फ्यू तोड़ मुसलमानों ने बचाई अमरनाथ तीर्थयात्रियों की जान

During such turbulent times, when the right wingers are doing their best to create a rift between the Kashmiris and the rest of Indians, there have been two heart-warming stories. One of a Kashmiri family walking miles to feed a Pandit friend's family.

And now this video of an Amarnath Yatri narrating how the local Kashmiris helped them out when they met with an accident and how they would have ended up dead if not for the help. He claims that he's never seen such insaaniyat (humanity). Watch this video here
On the other hand, the likes of Anupam Kher are digging out pictures of the KP massacre that happened in 1990s and using their social media reach to spread those pictures even without mentioning that these are actually old pictures. And similar extreme radical right wingers in the media (guess the names??) are coming out in full support to further the propaganda. What is this addiction to whataboutery?

Who's vested interest is it to spread  hatred ? Rightwingers of all hues

India Today reported how while half the state is under curfew, a lone Kashmiri woman and her husband braved a strict curfew to get some food across to her Pandit friend.At first glance, Zubeda Begum and her husband walking on a deserted road in Srinagar with a bag of food items looked like any another desperate family trying to fend for itself in the strife-torn city. However, this couple was actually risking their lives to get some food to a friend, who had telephoned from across the river Jehlum to inform them of their plight.
"She had called me in the morning saying her family needed food supplies. They have an ailing grandmother staying with them. I am taking the food to them. It is difficult but we are trying to reach them," Zubeda said.The shops and establishments remain shut for days and there is no means of transport on the roads. To add to their woes, police have limited movement of people.According to the couple, the risk and effort of the long walk was compensated with the warmth they received after arriving at the doorsteps of Diwanchand's flat in Jawahar Nagar."Everyone is suffering here. We are so glad that these people came here. This is where the humanity lies," said Diwanchand Pandit. Diwanchand and his family have been living in the Valley for many years. He works at All India Radio and his wife is a teacher in a local school where Zubeda also works.

Diwanchand and his family, including an ailing grandmother, were desperate for help as crisis mounted in the Valley.In the midst of this violence, Zubeda's heartwarming story is a perfect example of how humanity prevails even in times of adversity.

Muslim couple defy curfew, walk miles to feed starving Pandit family.
