Photo Exhibition: Revelation of Truth

Prepared by Panun Kashmir and Organised by HJS in Maharashtra: A report

This exhibition titled ‘Revelation of Truth’ consists of 150+ photographs of of plunder, destruction of Hindu Temples, atrocities by Muslims and torture of Hindus. The exhibition showed photographs of broken idols, desecrated Temples, mangled human bodies, Kashmiri Hindus camping in refugee tents, displaced in their own land! The photographs depicted the destruction of a civilization and a culture. (Of these, 52 photographs are available on the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti’s (HJS) website.)

The photographs displayed are not by professionals, but by the victims themselves who could barely manage a rudimentary camera to document their tragedy – Panun Kashmir (Organization of Kashmiri Pandits). Every photograph was taken at great risk to their lives; they could not stay a night in one place and at times shifting from one house to other every 2 hours.
