Jammu: Kashmir valley, a region in conflict, witnessed a mass uprising in 1989 which resulted in the migration of 64,800 Hindu Kashmiri Pandit families to different parts of the country, especially in Jammu. Additionally, around fifty Muslim families also fled Kashmir between November 1989 and 1994, as they were subjected to violence and treated inhumanely. Although these families sought refuge to protect themselves from violence, they were never documented and continue to live in dire conditions in refugee camps. Our team had the opportunity to speak with some of these families and provide them with a platform to share their stories.
