Article 370 is ‘dead’, reach out to hurt Kashmir
Straight Talk
K B Jandial We are witness to the history of J&K in the making. Undeterred by the controversies and adverse fallout of demonetisation of currency and emboldened by huge public support for the most daring surgical strikes in PoK and Balakote, the nation witnessed Modi’s yet another stunning masterstroke on 5th August 2019. The nation was pleasantly thrilled when Amit Shah informed Rajya Sabha that the President invoking power vested in Clause 3 of Article 370 has issued. The Constitution (Application to Jammu & Kashmir) Order 2019 superseding the earlier Presidential Order of 1954 and abrogated all clauses of Article 370 except a clause he proposed in the Statutory Resolution adopted ...

Afghanistan & not Kashmir is on Trump’s Agenda
K. B. Jandial President Donald Trump’s stunning claim of PM Modi seeking “his mediation or arbitration” on Kashmir and a thaw in US-Pakistan relationship are enough for separatists and mainstream Kashmiri leadership to cheer up. But will it make any difference in Kashmir situation? While within an hour of Trump’s diplomatic gaffe for which he is quite known, India out rightly rejected the claim, reiterating that India is committed to Shimla Agreement and Lahore Declaration for resolving all Indo-Pak differences bilaterally. While in fact, no responsible Indian leaders much less the Prime Minister can ever suggest third party mediation (arbitration is beyond imagination) b...

Open letter to President Donald Trump
K.N. Pandita Dear Mr. President, I think you have some faint idea about Kashmir dispute. Owing to the fact that in the cold war era, the newly created State of Pakistan was a close ally of Anglo-American bloc, therefore, to serve its interests, the bloc, by and large, accepted the version of Kashmir dispute as presented by Pakistan. Their viewpoint was strengthened when they found India pandering to the Soviet bloc. This is the basis of Anglo-American understanding of Kashmir dispute, and of course, an erroneous one. Since right or wrong is not an element in international diplomacy and only national interests determine the status of a dispute, the US has been abandoning itself...

Pandita Addressing a party function at NC headquarters in Srinagar on 20 July, Farooq Abdullah, the Chairman of NC and former CM of J&K has sounded the alarm of grave threat to the identity of Kashmir presumably at the hands of the Central government.

Farooq has opened a plethora of accusations, bizarre allegations of conspiracies and blatant insinuations without specifying who his tormentor is. . Let us first sum up the allegations and then proceed to make a dispassionate analysis. These can be summarized a...

Reviewing Kashmiri Pandit narrative
K.N. Pandita Thirty years to date, the exiled community is going through a new experience of salt-rubbing into its wounds. The new Home Minister inaugurated his stint in the ministry with a comprehensive assessment of the situation in Kashmir, past and present. Recently, he was in Srinagar on his first official visit and is reported to have met with a host of people representing an array of interests. It appears that by some strange quirk of destiny a small section of central leadership has been showing some interest in Kashmiri Pandit narrative. By which angle they look at the exiled community is difficult to judge. Amit Shah made a somewhat ungenerous comment about the Pa...
