{Shocking, Tragic and Horrible untold story of Kashmiri Hindus}

Some readers were writing comments about husband Pieter's Trip to India and especially Jammu & Kashmir State, hoping that meanwhile life has improved for them.
NO it has not...!
Only some 7-½ years after husband Pieter did go there, tragedy happened to those poor Hindus that lived there for some 5,000 years peacefully.
This is the message towards the end of the video about: Shocking, Tragic and Horrible untold story of Kashmiri Hindus...
The Media in general is yet to cover this and awake the conscious of the world!
Cowardly, most look away from it and pretend it does not exist.

  1. this level of savagery is difficult to imagine, yet i know it still continues with radicals, rebels, jihadists in many countries. politics. religion. greed. whatever reason. humans can become the worst of animals in the name of causes. we in america are not immune nor innocent, either.

    1. Dearest Theresa,
      It sure is very difficult to imagine and now you understand better this series of 11 articles (blog posts) about husband Pieter's visit to India and in particular to Kashmir at that time. His friend escaped with his family with only a handbag...
      Hugs,

    1. Dearest Celia,
      If such tragedy happened to someone Pieter has worked with and who just escaped with his family, with their bare life and a handbag... that is very shocking. Knowing that the beautiful Valley of Kashmir, from where I used to import goods, has lived through such horrendous atrocities will never leave our minds!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

      Yes, that is true but it does affect you in a big way if it is about people you met and about a city where you were just a couple of years before.
      Happy weekend to you as well!

      Esso infatti ci spaventano e spesso mi chiedo cosa sta avendo la prossima generazione di viso... Triste quando si tratta di persone che si conosce e una città dove siete stati, come in questo caso il viaggio di Pieter. Si dimentica non mai!
      Buon weekend e un abbraccio forte,

    1. Cara Paola,
      Noi possiamo solo pregare che si fermerà e che le persone possono vivere in pace e godersi la vita! Se noi non credeva nella vita dopo la morte, tutto questo si fa impazzire... Ma speriamo che Dio punirà queste persone malvagie!
      Baci e buona domenica!

  10. The brutality that people suffer at the hands of other people is indeed horrific. The level of depravity is mind-numbing. And it still is happening. I'm sorry that the people Pieter met and knew suffered these horrible things.

    1. Dearest Deborah,
      Yes it is mind-numbing indeed and if you have worked with some of the people that later had to suffer such horrible things, it forever touches you.
