Actor pens book on terrorism in Kashmir

Ashish Kaul is back with his third book on terrorism in Kashmir called ‘Rakht Gulab – The Blood Rose’. Union Minister for Human Resource Development Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank released the book in New Delhi.

‘Rakht Gulab’ has already created a sensation by being sold out on the first day itself on Amazon. It has been published by the iconic Rajhans Prakashan who have published numerous famous books. The book is Ashish Kaul’s third bestseller in succession in under two years.

“It is a proud moment for me personally but I believe the battle for restoring true peace in Kashmir has just begun. The world has remained silent for far too long and ignored the state-sponsored, multi-pronged genocide of Kashmiri Pandits. I am working to shake the sleeping world’s dispensation to the plight of our motherland,” said Kaul.

The author said that till date he has interacted with about 5,000 students across the country with the objective of educating the youth about the incisive true story of terrorism in Kashmir and how nearly 1.20 lakh families were rendered homeless in a matter of 48 hours and five lakh people were directly or indirectly impacted the mindless violence in the valley.

“It is an irony that Kashmiri Pandits were labelled as refugees in our own country where as we are the only community in the world that are the greatest ambassadors of peace and brotherhood. Despite being massacred and rendered homeless we have stood as a beacon of peace, tolerance and human values to the entire world,” said Kaul.

‘Rakht Gulab’ is Kaul’s tribute to the people and state of Maharashtra who came forward and supported Kashmiri Pandits by giving them love, dignity and access to professional education in the state. The book is also a message of peace for the youth of India to take a stand against terrorism and join hands to participate in peace building measures underway in the valley. (IANS).
