Rahul Pandita was fourteen years old in 1990 when he was forced to leave his home in Srinagar along with his family, who were Kashmiri Pandits: the Hindu minority within a Muslimmajority Kashmir that was becoming increasingly agitated with the cries of `Azadi¿ from India. The heartbreaking story of Kashmir has so far been told through the prism of the brutality of the Indian state, and the pro-independence demands of separatists. But there is another part of the story that has remained unrecorded and buried. Our Moon Has Blood Clots is the unspoken chapter in the story of Kashmir, in which it was purged of the Kashmiri Pandit community in a violent ethnic cleansing backed by Islamist militants. Hundreds of people were tortured and killed, and about 3,50,000 Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave their homes and spend the rest of their lives in exile in their own country. Rahul Pandita has written a deeply personal, powerful and unforgettable story of history, home and loss.… (més)

Excerpt from the book:

Girja, had been abducted and immediately blindfolded. Four men had taken turns to rape her in a moving taxi. As they were conversing with each other, Girja recognized the voice of one of the men who went by the name Aziz. ‘Aziza, chhetey chukha? Aziz, are you here as well?’ she asked in Kashmiri. Aziz got worried. He knew that Girja had recognized him. So, in a final act of barbarism, they took her to a wood-processing unit and cut her alive on a mechanical saw. This is what the seekers of freedom were doing to the religious minority.


My Thoughts:

Gut-wrenching and eye opening at the same time, Rahul Pandita's book throws light on how the blood drenched politics of the fundamentalist Muslim world played a major role in massacre of Pandits in Kashmir. It also explains without literally explaining, how much unfair it would be for Indians if Pakistan is successful in taking over Kashmir. The author takes us on an historical tour right from the beginning of civilization in the valley to the present day Kashmir while revisiting all the glory as well as the barbaric invasions that Kashmiris have experienced. While covering such a vast ground, for its major part, the book stays focused on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits and how it has been overlooked by Indian media and government. Most importantly without being preachy, it portrays how in midst of insanity some victims retained their sanity by not generalizing their hatred towards all Muslims.

Unfortunately in the madness of communal riots, the casualty is usually innocence. While reading books like 'Our Moon has Blood Clots' by Rahul Pandita, 'Lajja' by Taslima Nasreen, 'Communal Rage in Secular India' by Rafiq Zakaria, my belief in Bhagat Singh's ideology of 'Peace can be maintained in free India only when all religions are abolished' keeps growing stronger. India did get free but unfortunately not from the chains of its religions.

Our Moon has Blood Clots is a must read for every Indian who wants to learn more about the Kashmir issue. ( )

Our Moon has Blood Clots is a first person narrative of a young boy who along with his family was forced to flee from his home in Kashmir and had to grow up as a refugee in his own country. The author takes us to a life in an innocent Kashmir which he was accustomed to, before being forced to leave his home behind as separatist movement gained momentum in the Paradise on Earth.
