An atheist lists attacks on Hindus to bust Hinduphobia deniers

Since a lot of radical Islamists apologists from Bharat who are hiding behind the shades of liberalism believe that “Hinduphobia” isn’t a real thing, here is a thread of the many times when Hindus were lynched in Bharat just because of their identity.

[1] On 2 May 2003, eight Hindus were killed by a Muslim mob at Marad beach in Kozhikode district, Kerala. One of the attackers was also killed. The judicial commission that probed the incident concluded that members of several political parties were directly involved in planning and executing the killing. The commission affirmed “a clear communal conspiracy, with Muslim fundamentalist and terrorist organisations involved”. The courts sentenced 62 Muslims to life imprisonment for committing the massacre in 2009.

[2] There have been a number of more recent attacks on Hindu temples and Hindus by Muslim militants in Bharat. Prominent among them are the 1998 Chamba massacre, the 2002 fidayeen attacks on Raghunath temple, the 2002 Akshardham Temple attack allegedly perpetrated by Islamic terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba and the 2006 Varanasi bombings (supposedly perpetrated by Lashkar-e-Taiba), resulting in many deaths and injuries.

[3] The Godhra train burning on 27 February 2002 killed 59 people, including 25 women and 15 child Hindu pilgrims. In 2011, the judicial court convicted 31 people saying the incident was a “pre-planned conspiracy”.

[4] In Tripura, the National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) attacked a Hindu temple and killed a spiritual leader there. They are known to have forcefully converted Hindus to Christianity.

[5] In Assam, members of the primarily Christian Hmar ethnic group have placed bloodstained-crosses in temples and forced Hindus to convert at gunpoint.

[6] In Meghalaya, the Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC) threatened Bengali Hindus to leave Ichamati and Majai regions.

[7] The period of insurgency in Punjab around Operation Blue Star saw clashes of the Sikh militants with the police, as well as with the Hindu-Nirankari groups resulting in many Hindu deaths. In 1987, 32 Hindus were pulled out of a bus and shot near Lalru in Punjab

[8] The Kashmiri Pandit population living in the Muslim majority region of Jammu and Kashmir has often come under threat from Islamic militants in recent years.

[9] In 1986, the Anantnag Riots broke out, where radical Islamic groups targeted properties of Kashmiri Hindus and temples. Some authors have found evidence that these militants had the support of the Pakistani security establishment.

[10] The incidents of violence included the Wandhama Massacre in 1998, in which 23 Kashmiri Hindus were gunned down by Muslims disguised as Indian soldiers. Many Kashmiri Hindus have been killed and thousands of children orphaned over the course of the conflict in Kashmir.

[11] The 2000 Amarnath pilgrimage massacre was another such incident where 30 Hindu pilgrims were killed en route to the Amarnath temple.

[12] In the Kashmir region, approximately 300 Kashmiri Pandits were killed between September 1989 to 1990 in various incidents.

[13] In early 1990, local Urdu newspapers Aftab and Al Safa called upon Kashmiris to wage jihad against Bharat and ordered the expulsion of all Hindus choosing to remain in Kashmir in the following days masked men ran in the streets with AK-47 shooting to kill Hindus who would not leave. Notices were placed on the houses of all Hindus, telling them to leave within 24 hours or die.

[14] As of 2005, it is estimated that between 250,000 and 300,000 pandits have migrated outside Kashmir since the 1990s due to persecution by Islamic fundamentalists in the largest case of ethnic cleansing since the partition of Bharat. The proportion of Kashmiri Pandits in the Kashmir valley has declined from about 15% in 1947 to, by some estimates, less than 0.1% since the insurgency in Kashmir.

[15] In October 2021, three terrorist shot dead a Kashmiri pandit school teacher and a Sikh school principal after checking there identity cards and segregating them from there Kashmiri Muslim colleagues in a government run school Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba affiliated TRF claimed responsibility of the killings.

These are just a few examples of Hinduphobia in Bharat, there are more cases of it in other countries as well.
