The mosque in Kupwara district of Kashmir region- J&K began the chilling announcement “Tchaliv , Raliv, Galiv (leave, convert, die or you will be killed ) on late evening of January 19, 1990. This day the Kashimir pandits were wiped off from the valley, as claimed. Bharat Bushan Dhar, a Kashmiri hindu called it a black day as it snatched a integral part of every one who witnessed the mass exodus.
Bharat and his wife, like other 250 kashmiri families moved to Hyderabad and made the city a home. Thirty years later, they look back to this day (referring to January 19th ) and live with a hope to return to the valley, with abrogation of article 370 and its stem 35 A in the backdrop.
