When Pakistan Army was selectively killing Hindus in East Pakistan, then Indian govt deliberately suppressed that news fearing Hindu reaction in Bharat & instead peddled that Pakistan Army killing ALL BENGALIS. Similarly, they suppressed Kashmiri Hindus genocide due to the same reason.
The Indian State & so-called Liberals think that suppressing TRUTH & denying JUSTICE to Hindus are NECESSARY to maintain “secularism” in India. But how is this different from a family who suppress rape of their daughter & deny her JUSTICE due to fear of SHAME in society ?
Innocent Hindus have paid a VERY HEAVY PRICE to maintain ONE SIDED SECULARISM in India. There are so many WOUNDS to talk about – Moplah, partition horror, East Pakistan/Bangladesh,etc. And, WITHOUT acknowledgement, apology, reparation & correction – These wounds would NOT heal.

Excerpt from this OpIndia article:
Scholar Shrinandan Vyas, in his research paper at IIT Kanpur, stated that of the 3 million killed in 1971, 2.5 million were Hindus. Senator Edward Kennedy and Pulitzer winner journalist Sydney Schanberg noted that Hindu houses were marked with a bright yellow ‘H’.
Vyas notes, “Nearly 2.5 million Hindus were killed during the 9 months of Pakistani Army repression of East Pakistan in 1971. Thus it was a Hindu slaughter in 1971.”. “Indian Government controlled ‘secular’ media deliberately hid the sinister truth of Hindu Genocide in East Pakistan,” he added.
Excerpt from Hindu American Foundation post –
‘Genocide’ applies fully to [this] naked, calculated and widespread selection of Hindus for special treatment…From outset various members of American community have witnessed either burning down of Hindu villages, Hindu enclaves in Dacca and shooting of Hindus attempting [to] escape carnage, or have witnessed after-effects which [are] visible throughout Dacca today.”
