Best-selling author and award-winning journalist, Rahul Pandita will be on a US tour from October 21 to November 5, 2013. He will be in Naperville on Thursday, October 24.
Rahul is the author of “Our Moon Has Blood Clots” — the unspoken chapter in the story of Kashmir, in which it was purged of the Kashmiri Pandit community in a violent ethnic cleansing backed by religious separatists. Hundreds of people were tortured and killed and about 350,000 Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave their homes and spend the rest of their lives in exile in their own country. Rahul is currently Associate Editor, Outlook Magazine.
