Description: Rahul Pandit, M.D. was born in Srinagar, Kashmir and raised in the U.S. He is currently President of the Indo-American Kashmir Forum (www.iakf.org) and has served on its Board of Directors since 2004. IAKF is a non-profit advocacy group established in 1991 to highlight the oppression against Kashmiri Pandits that led to their forced exile from Kashmir due to the influx of fundamentalist Islamic terrorism. Dr. Pandit is a founding director of Foundation Against Continuing Terrorism (FACT, www.factusa.org), a non-profit organization that raises awareness of the effects of terrorism on Hindu communities in South Asia. He is in regular communication with Kashmiris in the US, India, and in Jammu & Kashmir. He recently returned from a trip to the Vale of Kashmir in September 2005. In the past, he has served on the national working committee for Hindu Students Council (HSC), the largest student organization in the U.S. promoting the human values of Sanatana Dharma.

Dr. Pandit is a full-time practicing eye surgeon in private practice in Houston, TX, and serves as Clinical Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at Baylor College of Medicine. He completed his Bachelor of Arts degree at Yale University, New Haven, CT, his Medical Degree at Rush University, Chicago, IL, and his ophthalmology residency and fellowship at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City, IA. In addition to his passion about the Kashmiri Pandit cause, Dr. Pandit is also dedicated to physical and spiritual fitness and holds a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, a Korean martial art.
