Supreme Court strikes blow for sanity
B L Saraf After a hectic day’s wear and tear it is quite natural that, in the evening, our urge is to go for unwinding and look out for some kind of recreation just to sooth the ruffled nerves and help physical body recuperate . As a measure of enjoyment and some kind of instrument to unburden ourselves we look to explore an avenue of amusement which ,in addition , may add a fraction to our knowledge. To have them , a TV screen in the living room comes handy . But once switched on we rue the decision as the worst of both is in store for us . Move to the other channel and it is the story retold.

A tiny lamp versus the tempest
K.N. Pandita If Kangana Ranaut’s critical statement hurt anybody or any institution, the right thing to do was to make her judicially answerable on refusing to apologize. In no case, it warranted taking the law into one's hand. This country has to be ruled by the law of the land and not the jungle law. Kangana’s critics are deliberately touching upon only the peripheral issues of little or no importance while keeping clear of the core issue. They know by raking up the core issue the iceberg will rise like a huge amphibious monster. And what is the core issue? Since long, people are heard talking of fantastic things about the illusory fairyland of Bollywood. But the gossip...

Scrutinizing the question “Who we are?”
K N Pandita Cheers to Farooq Abdullah for raking up a pertinent question “Who we are” while releasing a joint statement of six parties or Gupkar Declaration – 02. This is at the root of the politics of Kashmir Valley. The first leader of the Valley who practically resolved the enigma of “who we are” was Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah. And when he lost the direction the mantle fell on the shoulders of Bakhshi Ghulam Muhammad in 1953. When the Bakhshi was close to fortifying the Kashmirian real identity, the pseudo-Sultans in Delhi pulled the rug under his feet. Little did they understand that they had signed the hundred year war in Kashmir? The real motivation behind Sheikh Abdul...

Middle East: the deepening fissures
K.N. Pandita The new Islamic syndicate, though still at the conceptual stage, is pushed mainly by Turkey and Pakistan. Iran, the lone Shi’a Muslim State, and traditionally not friendly with the Sunnis would be an odd man in the contemplated syndicate. Malaysia, after the ignominious exit of Mahathir, is almost on the horns of a dilemma. The idea receives cautious support from China. It is so because in the furtive Kuala Lampur Islamic meet last year, Mahathir had put Uighur issue also on the agenda. Nevertheless, China will not withhold its blessings to the initiative for known reasons. Initiators hope Russia will be on board. Moscow will have to think twice about the imp...

No to Gupkar Declaration, Why not Jammu Declaration?
Straight Talk

However, the Congress says that PCC Chief didn’t attend the meeting held at Dr. Farooq Abdullah’s Gupkar residence on 22nd August, 2020 and on very next day, partially disassociated from the Declaration, respecting the overwhelming sentiments of Ladakh and Jammu and the impugned Articles 35A & 370 being subjudice. However, it extended support for restoration of Statehood, which even Jammu is demanding. The Declaration issued five months...

Gupkar Declaration to Six-party Resolution
K N Pandita A year ago, on August 4, 2019, prominent political leaders of Kashmir Valley had come together at Farooq Abdullah’s residence on Gupkar Road in Srinagar and agreed to stay “united in their resolve to protect and defend identity, autonomy and the special status of J&K against all attacks and onslaughts whatsoever”. The decision for the meet was driven by rising speculation of “attacks and onslaughts whatsoever.” Reading between the lines, the term “whatsoever” subtly referred to Hindu-dominated NDA government while the phrase “to protect and defend identity, autonomy and the special status of J&K” implied the identity etc. of the Muslim majority of the Valley.

Initiative for a political process in J&K
K.N. Pandita In any case, after a long spell of Presidential rule, the political process has to begin in the J&K. The administration has to pass into the hands of the elected government. In the lexicon of contemporary politics, normalcy has a new connotation. Just as we may have to put up with Coronavirus so shall we have to put up with fractured normalcy. We may have to live under the shadow of the gun for a long time. Therefore normalcy cannot be taken as the latchkey for entry to the political process. After their release from house arrest, Kashmir politicians of all hues have demanded resumption of the political process along with other demands. The newly formed...
