Kashmir 101 Briefing: Hindu Human Rights

Beginning in 1989, a systematic campaign by Islamist militants cleansed nearly 400,000 Hindus from the Kashmir Valley. Many of these Kashmiri Hindus (Pandits) continue to live in squalid refugee camps with no hope of returning home. On August 1, 2011, Congressman Frank Pallone introduced H. Res 387 which recognizes and condemns the religious persecution and human rights violations faced by Kashmiri Hindus. The resolution is currently pending before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The briefing will provide an overview of the historical background and delve into the modern-day complexities of the region.

Date: Monday, September 19
Time:  2:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: 2255 Rayburn House Office Building, 45 Independence Ave, SW. Washington, D.C.

Lisa Curtis - Senior Research Fellow at Asia Studies Center, Heritage Foundation
