The article, “There are no goodbyes” (Jan. 20), was a moving read. It is a well-established fact that some local neighbours share responsibility for the Kashmiri Pandits’ exodus. Announcements from loudspeakers threatening them to leave can never be forgotten.
My heart goes out to the likes of Mrs. Ganjoo, Zakia Jafri and countless others who may have suffered the pain of irredeemable loss. The perpetrators may go scot-free, but they cannot escape their conscience.
