 Debate
Kashmir politics hostage to ambivalence
By K.N. Pandita Three districts of South Kashmir are infested with militancy. Crowds of local people come out to throw stones at security forces with the purpose of obstructing their operation against hiding terrorists. Police tries to disperse the crowds using minimum force. It shows that local people have the courage and determination to face the security forces which are fully armed. Therefore, by the same analogy if the crowds of people were against militancy they would as well make a show of their courage and confront the militants. They do not do that. Hence it is not correct to say that people fear the gun, either of the security forces or of militants. They have method in ...

Amarnath Attack :Artificial mourning and natural ambivalence
By B L Saraf It is after the gap of 17 years that we had a terror attack on Amarnath Yatra. The July 10th militant attack on Amarnath Yatris in Anantnag has caused death of seven pilgrims and injuries to a dozen of them. The dastardly act has, as expected, evoked widespread outrage across the country. Jammu and Kashmir didn’t lag behind in experiencing the outrage. The murderous attack has been condemned in Kashmir by all shades of the people. However, true to the pattern, even in condemnation we have had hints of a diabolical game being played out. In nearly three decades history of Pak sponsored armed militancy we have seen that whenever the armed militancy came unde...

Myth of J&K’s Special status & Fiscal autonomy
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial Nearly a month long theatrics in J&K over extension of GST regime is over after it was rolled out eight days later than rest of India. Now, it is a time for the PDP-BJP coalition Govt to pat itself for “safeguarding the special status and fiscal autonomy” of the State on one hand and on the other, the NC is discrediting Mehbooba Govt for “surrendering” J&K’s special status accusing her of “deceitful and questionable collaboration in facilitating the erosion of J&K’s Autonomy”. NC’s former ally Congress too joined NC’s bandwagon on this issue. While Mehbooba has won the GST war but the skirmishes may continue in the post-GST era with teething hiccups provid...

GST and Its Politics
By B L Saraf GST is now a reality in J&K , after State Legislature opened doors for its entry . However , the debate which preceded its entry will not abate .

In the pre- entry scenario we observed that , though , the matter had profound economic implications for J&K , yet in the raging debate politics on the tax measure held the centre-stage . Legal ...

Pak intensifies border shelling
By K.N. Pandita Situation on the Line of Control at some very sensitive parts like Krishna Ghati in Poonch or Nowshehra sectors has become tense as a result of Pakistani infiltrators making more bids to sneak into Indian Territory and carry out their plan of attacking Indian posts. In the more recent exchange of fire, two of our jawans have been martyred and two more have been injured.

Kashmir ‘Defies’ One-Nation One-Tax Regime
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial Unlike in rest of India, the GST in J&K will not be rolled out on 1st July this year, sending a loud and unambiguous message that J&K is a separate territory ( and quom) which doesn’t welcome ‘Indian laws’ howsoever progressive and pro-consumer these may be. On Saturday last, an unprecedented parliamentary ‘coup’ was quietly executed by the law makers including BJP within the legislative assembly, supported by ever vocal Kashmiri traders from outside that stalled for the time being introduction of GST bill for which it was specially convened. The Hurriyat Conference too had lent its support to the Kashmiri traders. And the Govt too readily obliged by deferring...

The issue of minority status for Pandits
By K.N. Pandita Chairman National Minority Commission has opined that Kashmiri Pandits should be given the status of a minority community. This status is granted only by the Union Home Ministry. There are six communities in the country which have been accorded minority status with Jains being the recent entry into the list after Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists and Parsees. Since the matter of minority status to Kashmiri Pandits pertains to a group of the citizens of J&K where Article 370 of the Constitution is applicable, the Home Ministry cannot bypass the State Government even if it wants to include the Pandits in its list of national minorities. Previously a...

It’s not Kashmiriyat
By Amit Kushari IAS (Retd) Nowadays, I often find young Kashmiri men posting their photos on the facebook with the caption,” Proud to be a Kashmiri”. What do these young men and women want to convey? We are all proud Indians, proud Biharis, proud Tamils or proud Bengalis…..what is so special that it has to be announced boldly . We are all proud of our mothers and motherland. If a Kashmiri is proud of his Kashmiri roots, it is a very natural feeling and everybody appreciates it. However, if there is any hint of a Kashmiri not being a proud Indian, just because he is a Kashmiri, then it becomes somewhat controversial. There are approximately 2 lakhs of Kashmiri Pundits in Jammu, Delh...
