SAMosa Takes

Images of Kashmiri separatists walking the corridors of the Prime Minister’s office during Atal Behari Vajpayee’s tenure have been replaced with visuals of Hurriyat Conference leaders being arrested and taken into custody by a central agency.

 

India's National Investigation Agency (NIA) arrested on June 24 seven prominent Kashmiri separatists on charges of receiving funds from Pakistan to sponsor terrorist activities and stone-pelting protests in the Kashmir Valley.

 

It is appalling to see how the struggle for self-determination in Kashmir has been reduced to bitter recriminations between Pakistan and India.

 

In India today, people from communities oppressed both historically and recently — including Dalits, Kashmiris and Muslims — strive to stand up to the violent machismo that appears all around us.

 

The aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir point to the way towards a workable democratic pluralism in the state.

 

Men of letters have outstanding world views, but sometimes their views on the situation in the Valley are coloured by lack of practical appreciation of the ground reality.

 

A little over half of 2017 has gone by and the tally of terrorists killed stands at 105, the highest in a number of years.

 

The surprise in Kashmir is not the death of pilgrims caught in the crossfire between militants and the forces trying to maintain law and order.

 

On many occasions in the past, I had cautioned that the Kashmir issue or problem (or by whatever name it is called) was a festering wound.

 

Tranquility in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) has been shattered by the heavy hand of military totalitarianism and militancy in the past, and is now a victim of the fragmentation that is ripping our social fabric to pieces.
