Ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri Pandits was an event that occurred on 20 January 1990 when most of the Pandit families were forced to flee from Kashmir valley due to outbreak of Islmaic terrorism. The estimate of Pandits having fled Kashmir ranges from approximately 100,000 to as high as 800,000.
According to Indian government, more than 60,000 families are registered as Kashmiri migrants including some Sikh families. Most families were resettled in Jammu, NCR and other neighbouring states. In 2016, only 2764 Kashmiri Hindus were left in Kashmir Valley.
The militancy in Kashmir had increased after the exodus. The militants had targeted the properties of Kashmiri Pandits after their exodus. In 2009 Oregon Legislative Assembly passed a resolution to recognise 14 September 2007, as Martyrs Day to acknowledge ethnic cleansing and campaigns of terror inflicted on non-Muslim minorities of Jammu and Kashmir by terrorists seeking to establish an Islamic state.
