  9. sudeep says:

    The jihad apologist says, democracy means 'allow people to decide what they want', yet the Northern states went to war to preserve the union! The demand that India simply roll over and allow a jihadi rump statelet in Kashmir is preposterous and completely unacceptable. For the safety of religious and ethnic minorities in the Kashmir valley, its imperative that Kashmir is integrated fully with the Indian union.

  10. Sumit Bhat says:

    That woman is a hypocrite, she didn't told about discrimination against women. She is talking about secularism but didn't pointed about hindus displaced. I wonder why these pseudo seculars are brought to discussion.

  11. Himanshu Bhatt says:

    Kashmiri Muslims still refuse to cooperate with India because other Indians are mainly Hindus.
    Islamists brought this upon themselves.

  12. law community says:

    What about kashmiri hindus??

  13. rashidaq says:

    It is simple solution
    Kashmiris want freedom from India and India wants Kashmir without Kashmiris
    That is why brutal curfew and blockade of vital services is to choke Kashmiris

  14. Prince Otter Channel2 says:

    gangweed Kashmir rise up

  15. luke wilson says:

    Pakistan pays 500rs to Kashmiris to throw rocks at indian soldiers despite knowing the risks. The only kashmiri pakistan cares about is a dead kashmiri.
    Pakistan is stuck with a business minded army that can't fight wars and nukes it can't use so it resorts to jihadist terror subconventional warfare using terror groups, namely JeM and LeT. In fact, pakistan kashmir is merely a petting zoo for extremists and a launching bad for jihadists into foreign soil.

    What would happen if..say a U.S. citizen threw rocks at a police officer much less a soldier? …it wouldn't be pretty….

  16. harry krishton says:

    India has more muslims than pakistan please take note Pakistanis are the intolerant ones

  17. Sabi says:

    infant mortality rate, maternal mortality rate, expenditure on health per capita..
    literacy rate

    plus – no of homeless in J&K is nil.
    Crime rate indices

    i will not share figures…. check these and you will know – Kashmir is in a far better position. be it health, economy or any other index.

  18. Jimmy C says:

    Basically the kashmiris are not protesting peacefully. Otherwise why would army be needed. All these years there were Pakistani trained terrorists and local terrorist. They want to separate kashmir.. and now they will try to disturb as this is their last chance. Unfortunately the kashmiri politicians were corrupt and porkistan feels it has some birth right over kashmir while their own oppressed communities are protesting

  19. Farheen Muhammad says:

    Kashmiri never give up. Shame on India.

  20. M.Faisal Siddiqui says:

    WORLD must visit Kashmir and show reality of shameless racist indian govt. Internationally recognized disputed territory which india Govt signed and agreed in 1948. Reality cannot be hide by Brutal Racist India govt. Racist Indian Govt Internally betrayed human rights and Breached UN resolutions and kicked UN resolutions in dustbin. We are Pakistani and we will be Pakistani. Kashmir is Pakistan. Curfew from more than 20 days. Mobile, internet everything is shut down.

  21. Pranit Malik says:

    Kashmir did make it's own laws. A few examples.

    1. Islamic state. Not secular.
    2. No equal rights to women. Limited land rights.
    3. Lower castes only allowed to be sweepers and sanitary work. By law.
    4. No free access to education
    5. Businesses not allowed to buy land. Not just individuals.
    6. No minority protection to Hindus, Budhist and others.
    7. Hindu genocide in 90's chanhed demographic. Noone punished.
    8. No anti corruption agency. Corruption systemic.

    Kashmir was never going to improve. 370 ensured it. So politicians and terrorist hold people to ransom. Kashmir does better than rest of India is just a bogus claim.

    Now, Kashmir is equal.

  26. Aqeel Qureshi says:

    India has been captured, as Germany had been captured by Nazis, by a fascist, racist Hindu Supremacist ideology & leadership.This threatens 9m Kashmiris under siege in IOK for 3 weeks which shd have sent alarm bells ringing across the world with UN Observers being sent there

  27. Aqeel Qureshi says:

    The fascist, Hindu Supremacist Modi Govt should know that while armies, militants & terrorists can be defeated by superior forces; history tells us that when a nation unites in a freedom struggle & does not fear death, no force can stop it from achieving its goal.

    That is why the Hindutva exclusivist creed of the Modi-led Govt with its fascist tactics in IOK will fail miserably in its attempt to smother the Kashmiri liberation struggle.

  28. l' M says:

    The people of Kashmir don't want to be part of India, and that is all that matters!

  29. Saqib says:

    Indian people always say kashmiri Hindus have suffered. Why do they keep forgetting the Kashmiri Muslims have suffered many times over. One generation of kashmiri Hindus were displaced and their future generations are in safety and are settled in other places. How many generations of kashmiri Muslims have been lost.
    It should be noted over 8 Million kashmiris currently live in the valley.

  30. Ankur Sarkar says:

    India is committed to establish peace in Kashmir by promoting development. Article 370 was a historical blunder and caused great harm to Kashmir. The autonomy given by the Article prevented investments from outside Kashmir and there was no job creation. It also led to corruption (due to absence of watchdogs), and a feeling of alienation among the Kashmiris from the heartland. During the 70 years of autonomy, Jammu & Kashmir received 10 per cent of tax payers' money for one per cent of India's population. This money was not used for development but was looted by their own local leaders. Revocation of Article 370 is a step towards development. The loss of autonomy means now the Centre can keep an eye on the utilization of the money. It will also allow investments in tourism and other sectors which have massive growth potential. It will fulfill the aspirations of the Kashmiris which were neglected by their own leaders for 7 decades.

    Some people have countered me by saying that Jammu & Kashmir is more developed than many states in India. That is indeed true. But it is also a fact that Jammu & Kashmir is very different topographically from those states. That's comparing apples and oranges! The neighbouring state of Himachal pradesh is closest to the topography of Jammu & Kashmir. It receives 24 per cent less central grants than J&K, but its per capita income is 48% higher. No matter what parameter of development you look at, Himachal Pradesh is way ahead. So the "more developed" notion falls flat when you compare J&K with a similar state. Article 370 was certainly detrimental to J&K.

    The restrictions on movement are in place to maintain law and order in the state and are temporary. Indian Government will ease or impose restrictions based on ground realities from time to time. The Kashmiris have been provoked to secede from India by Pakistan for decades, which has been following its policy of "Bleed India with a thousand cuts" under "Operation Tupac". Pakistan wants the land of Kashmir although they have no legal right to it. Kashmir's sovereignty was transferred to India by its ruler Hari Singh who signed the Instrument of Accession on 26 October 1947. The Pakistan's claim to Kashmir rests on the logic that Kashmir is Muslim majority so should belong to Pakistan.

    Soon, Pakistanis met reality when they found that no one on the world stage was convinced with their logic and it was impossible to get Kashmir from India diplomatically. So they thought of a second plan. Seize Kashmir using military!! They fought two wars with India over Kashmir (1948, 1965) and lost both of them. They realized that they can't defeat India in a conventional war.

    So Pakistan decided to engage in asymmetric warfare. It formulated a third strategy which it is actively pursuing even today. The strategy was officially named "Bleed India with a thousand cuts." The objective was to make Kashmir secceed from India by an internal rebellion and then make it join Pakistan. To implement this strategy, ISI activated the "Operation Tupac" program in 1988. It built massive terrorist infrastructure in Pakistan-India border region and sponsored terrorists who shall target India. It not only diverted the Afghan 'global mujahideen' groups like Harkat-ul-Mujahideen to J&K at the end of Soviet-Afghan war (1989) but also created several new terrorist groups like Hizbul Mujahideen(1989), Allah Tigers (1989), Al Umar Mujahideen (1989), Lashkar-e-Taiba (1990), Al-Badr (1998) and Jaish-e-Mohammed (2000). These terrorists infiltrated India and carried out attacks in Kashmir and other parts of India. Along with that, they mingled with the Kashmir population and taught them the concept of Jihad. They spread the idea among the Kashmiris that India is a Hindu nation, Hindus are outsiders and Kashmiri Muslims will always be subjugated to Hindus, so they should seek freedom. And the Pakistani leadership publicly showed sympathy towards Kashmir's struggle to further lure them.

    Kashmiris started falling in this trap created by Pakistan to destroy India's unity. The frequent terrorist attacks carried out by these Pakistani terrorists also compelled India to put more military in the region. India started gathering intelligence about these terrorists who were living in the valley disguised as native kashmiri. Indian forces were involved in deadly encounters with these terrorists which caused deaths on both sides. Pakistan then painted the deaths of these terrorists as killing of native Kashmiris by India and spread the false narrative of Indian occupation further. The gullible Kashmiri people couldn't distinguish between the truths and lies and made the mistake of accepting the Pakistani narrative. Kashmiris started to hate Hindus present in the region. The Hindu Kashmiri Pandits were tortured and killed by Kashmiri Muslims so much that the community had to flee Kashmir. No attempt was made by local Kashmiri leaders to condemn the murders of Kashmiri Pandits. As terrorism and separatism grew hand in hand, India was forced to deploy more and more troops. Pakistan succeeded in creating the narrative of Indian occupation and fooled even international media like Al Jazeera and BBC. They only saw and reported human rights abuses in the valley while completely ignoring Pakistan's evil design that caused this hatred.

    Pakistan which created Taliban (one of the biggest violater of human rights in the world) is today advocating for human rights in Kashmir. Pakistan's real intentions can be easily gauged if you notice Pakistan's absolute silence over China's persecution of Uighur Muslims and other Muslim minorities in Xinjiang. Scores of Christians in Pakistan are been convicted regularly of desecrating the Koran or blaspheming against the Prophet Muhammad and are handed death sentences. Pakistan has never cared about human rights in Kashmir or anywhere else. It just wants to grab Kashmir by any means and in this case the narrative of Indian oppression is convenient.

    It is a no-brainer that restrictions on movement are necessary to control this kind of situation and any nation would deal with the problem in the same way India is dealing. The media can cry as much as it want about violation of human rights but to every nation, law and order is more important. Without law and order, democracy can't prosper. Only trouble makers have been denied these rights. You won't find these restrictions in other parts of India. India has no need to deploy forces in kashmir or impose any restrictions if these stone pelters come to their senses and accept the reality that Kashmir is an integral part of India. The word Kashmir itself is derived from the name of the Hindu sage Kashyapa. Islam arrived in Kashmir only in 13th century AD but Hindus have lived in Kashmir since the Vedic period (1500 BC).

    India is a secular country and every religion has same rights in India. The constitution also has provisions to safeguard the interests of minorities. We don't accept the demand for a separate nation carved out from India on the basis of religion. According to Indian Constitution, India is an indestructible union and any kind of secession is unconstitutional.

    When it comes to the question of holding a plebiscite in Kashmir as per UNSC resolution, I want to remind that the Shimla Agreement of 1972 decided between India and Pakistan has superseded the UNSC resolution of 1948. Thus, the UNSC resolution is null and void because both parties of the original dispute, India and Pakistan have decided to settle the issue of Kashmir bilaterally. So, it is no longer an international dispute but a bilateral one.

    When it comes to the legality of revoking Article 370, please note that Article 370 was always a temporary provision in Indian constitution and so it is a completely internal matter and prerogative of India. As per the Pakistani claims that India changed the status quo, I want to remind that Pakistan has no locus standi in this regard, because they themselves have changed status quo of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) many times, latest one being the construction of CPEC projects in the disputed area.

    I urge the readers to not get misguided by the ill-informed media. The Kashmir conflict is lot more complicated than what the news media is showing to you and labelling it as an Indian occupation is injustice. India has historically been a vocal supporter of human rights. India's contribution to the struggle against apartheid in South Africa is today well-known. India won praises from the leaders of the freedom movement including Nelson Mandela.

    India is the proof for humanity that all religions (Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Jews, Parsis etc.) can co-exist and live together as a nation. As long as the world remains fractured along religious lines, there can't be a peaceful world. If you want the world to be united, then first support the concept of India.

    The fact that Kashmir is good in social parameters prove how well India treated them. India pumped in huge amounts of money to kashmiri people, gave them freebies ND infrastructure. But radicalization by religion prevented integration
