Kashmir turmoil

Kashmir violence raises fears of return to bloody sectarian past

Attacks on non-Muslims recall memories of 1990s insurgency when thousands fled

SRINAGAR, India -- When Supinder Kaur, a 46-year-old Sikh mother of two, made breakfast before heading to a local school where she served as principal, she had no idea it would be the last meal she would make for her family.

Kaur was shot dead just hours after saying goodbye to her seven-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter. Militants stormed her school on the outskirts of Srinagar on Oct. 7, checked the IDs of teachers and staff to look for their religions, then shot Kaur along with her Hindu colleague Deepak Chand inside the school.
