Restore Internet connectivity
B L Saraf Access to internet is basic right – Kerala High Court We have come to witness a strange phenomenon. Probably, it has something to do with the times we live in: that when some disturbances occur in any part of the country – minor or major – internet connectivity becomes the foremost causalty. Public authorities snap it at the first available occasion as if to work as panacea of all the ills. May be in certain situations and for shorter durations it is desirable. But net’s prolonged blackout, in much case, proves counter -productive, and, in effect, does quite the opposite of what is actually intended. Absence of a legitimate and authentic source of information leaves ...

Communication post 370
Prof.M.K Bhat Television debates, social media posts, statements from various political parties etc ever since the abrogation of article 370 has led to the labeling of people as patriots and anti nationals. “We the people of India” is getting lost in this rhetoric created by motor mouthed people with particular interests. Everyone feels that his version is the only truth and is least interested to listen to the other opinion. The TV channels have adopted it as a profit model to get higher TRP and political parties try to show either hyper nationalism or carry the views antagonistic to Indian interests simply to polarize the voters in the country. Quite often the viewer glued ...

UNHRC’s doubtful impartiality on Kashmir
K.N. Pandita UN Human Rights Council’s 42nd session has just come to an end in Geneva. My more than twenty year experience at the UN in Geneva is that it has not been fair to India in regard to Kashmir cause. This bigotry is traceable to the days of British colonial rule over India. In her opening statement the UN High Commissioner on Human Rights gave two short paragraphs on Kashmir in which she has been unreasonably critical. The High Commissioner says “coming to my office” say this and that. Who are her reporters and who vouches for their credibility.? She says she is concerned about the impact of recent actions of GOI on the human rights of the people. One may ask were was...

Kashmir hysteria grips Pakistan
K N Pandita Kashmir is all that Pakistan talks about these days. On 14 August, the day on which Great Britain created Pakistan in 1947, Imran Khan was in Muzaffarabad instigating PoK “nationalists”, (the long-time adversaries of Pakistan), that India had snatched away Kashmir from them. He purported to convey through them a message to PoK expatriates in the UK who responded by making a massive protest demonstration in front of the Indian Mission in London. The London police made a mock show of preventive measures. Armed insurgency and aazaadi (freedom) slogan were actually initiated by PoK’s UK-based Diaspora in the early 1980s on the behest of ISI. These criminals had kidnapped...

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...
