SUPREME COURT FAILS YET AGAIN TO PROVIDE JUSTICE
SC dismisses petition for investigations on Kashmiri Pandit… https://t.co/1kKFrjwWH1

On July 23, the Supreme Court of India refused to reopen 215 cases in which 700 Kashmiri Pandits were killed during the 1989-90 unrest in the Valley. Refusing to entertain a plea seeking reprobe for alleged offences against the Kashmiri Pandits during that period, an apex court bench observed that it will be difficult to obtain evidence after 27 years.
A bench of Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud said: “You (petitioner) sat over it for last 27 years. Now tell us from where the evidence will come.”
To this, the counsel replied that the community had banked on the “legitimate expectation” that successive governments would bring them justice. “But theirs was only lip service,” the counsel submitted.
The Supreme Court's dismisal of our petition is justice delayed and denied too. https://t.co/NWHy0wESMw

Indian media did not even report it in primetime, that their Supreme Court rejected a petition into Kashmiri Pandit killings this week.

More importantly here, the Indian Media which otherwise leaves no stone unturned to dehumanise Kashmiris didn’t even bother talking about it. When minor issues like congratulating Pakistan on their victory could make it to the prime-time, this decision from India’s apex court couldn’t reach the apex prime time.
For all those who are outraged with a pic I posted yday- Remember brutal killing of innocent people is not supposed to have an expiry date.

The so called custodians of Kashmiri Pandits’ right did not even bother tweeting about. They otherwise don’t leave a chance to be vocal about this.
Experts believe Kashmiri Pandits’ migration and sufferings are only raked up as a tool to alter the narratives and legitimise the oppression, rather than any sincerity towards the victims.
