With the onset of the militancy in State of Jammu and Kashmir, particularly in Kashmir (Division) in the year 1989-1990 a large number of people had to migrate from their ancestral places of residence which resulted in the mass exodus of Kashmiri Hindu’s along with a number of families belonging to Sikhs and Muslims.
