On the Other Side of Exodus: The Case of the Kashmiri Sikhs
Khushdeep Kaur Malhotra
August 12, 2019
In this issue of India in Transition, Khushdeep Kaur Malhotra, doctoral candidate in Geography and Urban Studies, Temple University, shifts the focus to Kashmir's oft-ignored minority, the Kashmiri Sikhs, and examines how, despite being the target of violence, the community remains rooted in the Kashmir Valley—revealing that economics, considerations, attachment to land, religious freedom, and Sikh-Muslim solidarity keeps the Sikhs rooted, and makes the case for revisiting toxic narratives about demography and exodus from the Valley.
