Jammu massacre darkest chapter in Jammu and Kashmir’s history


The Jammu massacre of November 1947 is the darkest chapter in the history of Jammu and Kashmir.

A report released by Kashmir Media Service, on Saturday, said the scars of the grisly massacre of Jammu Muslims are still fresh in the Kashmiris’ memory even after the passage of 74 years.

Hundreds of thousands of Kashmiris were butchered by the forces of Dogra Maharaja Hari Singh, Indian army and Hindu extremists in different parts of Jammu region while they were migrating to Pakistan during the first week of November in 1947.

The report said, the Jammu massacre was the first genocide after the 2nd World War on such a massive scale.—INP
