Do you remember 19 January 1990?

In the middle of the night of 19th January 1990, half the population of Kashmir Pandit was on the street, running to save their lives.  January 20, 1990, was the day when thousands of Kashmiri Pandits, including the old man, were forced to flee from their homes - their paradise. Over 60,000 Kashmiri Pandits escaped from the separatist insurgency as violence peaked in the early 1990s. Most of them had to drive a 12-hour long ride to Jammu, where they sought refuge for the next few years.  It's been over thirty years now. Kashmiri Pandits continue to live as refugees in exile in their own country. It's the biggest shame in the history of a democratic and secular country like India. Sushil Pandit joins Ratnadeep Chakraborty to talk the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits, the abrogation of article 370 and the way forward for Kashmiri Pandits.
