India tries to rehabilitate Kashmiri Pandits

Community fled region during violent uprising in 1990s, when others crossed border to train as fighters.

    The Indian government is trying to find ways to rehabilitate those Hindu Kashmiri Pandits who want to return to Kashmir, more than 20 years after the uprising that led them to flee the region. In the 1990s, at the height of a violent uprising against Indian rule, thousands of people left the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. By choice, some travelled across the border to Pakistan to train as fighters and others, like the Hindu Kashmiri Pandits, fled their homes fearing attack.
