Sordid end of coalition government
K.N. Pandita The coalition government has collapsed, perhaps belatedly. Hindsight shows that much damage could have been averted if the government had fallen much earlier. Coalition governments are not unknown in a democratic set up. However, at least there has to be a modicum of ideological compatibility. When BJP decided to be the partner in a coalition government with PDP after previous election, two things could become transparent. One was that the BJP betrayed no qualms of conscience in deviating from its cut and dried nationalistic policy as is generally believed. Seco...

Shujaat’s killing: Taking Kashmir back to 90s?
Straight Talk
K B Jandial At times, realities become incredibly strange. Recently, one such strange reality was agonizingly seen in Kashmir. A powerful voice of versatile senior journalist, Shujaat Bukhari, in support of unilateral ceasefire in Kashmir as part of a peace initiative, was silenced by the militants and his brutal killing became one of the grounds to revoke it by the Govt of India, to the liking of the anti- peace and hate- India groups who did everything to derail the peace initiative during holy Ramzan. Besides being against the tenets of Islam, the violent killing of Edi...

UN Human Rights Commission discredits itself
K.N. Pandita For the first time in the history of Kashmir question at the UN, the Chairman of Human Rights Commission Mr. Zeid Ra’d Al Hussein of Jordan has issued a 49-page tutored report spread over 20 paragraphs on “abuse and violation of human rights” in the State of Jammu and Kashmir mainly by India and peripherally by Pakistan. The report is a forceful indictment of India, particularly her security forces operating in Kashmir. Why has the report come today after twenty-eight years of externally sponsored Theo-fascist activities in Kashmir that consumed so many innocent lives besides the ethnic cleansing of the valley of its religious minority of the Pandits? ...

Why doesn’t Kashmir stand up for Ramzan initiatives
Straight Talk
K B Jandial Will bloodshed in Kashmir ever come to an end? This soul searching question can be more appropriately rephrased. Will bloodshed in Kashmir be ever allowed to end? Answer to it would at least make you understand the complexities of Kashmir situation and the wide spread tentacles of “prophets of doom” within and outside Kashmir that put spokes in every peace initiative. Anti-peace brigade is the new development in Kashmir which spikes all such initiatives. But the unexplained issue is when Kashmir will stand up to this motley crowd of youngsters. Why the politicians have conveniently slipped into hibernation? They did it when minuscule KPs were forced to mig...

The claim of gang rape too has been questioned. This led to some change in perception at national and state level and also appreciation of demand for CBI probe. Politically and s...

Kashmir politicos on the same wavelength
K.N. Pandit Maddening media hype allowed to the atrocious treatment of a minor Muslim girl in the village Rassana in Kathua district will cost dare to the ruling BJP. Line of discretion has been crossed in a bid to garner elusive goodwill of the community, which, however, is a sickening subject. BJP higher echelons have fallen in the trap of a meticulous conspiracy hatched by ISI, Hurriyat and PDP combine. General Secretary Ram Madhav has unwittingly proved his naivety by giving an incoherent and inexperienced interview to electronic media at Jammu. Essentially, this is an inter-clannish feud of Bakarwal community in the region. The focal point in the narrative i...

Time To Pause And Reflect

Very rightly , a Jammuite feels political marginalized , geographically squeezed , emotional under siege and let down by the very persons whom he brought from nowhere and placed on the pedestal . Worst of all , he stands accused of that what he stood against and fought all his life despite grave and persistent ...
