Post Article 370: No Quick Results, Long Road Ahead
Straight Talk
K B Jandial One year after the historic “abrogation” of controversial temporary Article 370 of the Constitution of India by the Parliament with two third majority, one doesn’t find any euphoria in the downgraded UT of Jammu & Kashmir, even in Hindu majority Jammu region. At national level, the anniversary is overshadowed by the bhoomi pujan at Ramjanmabhoomi at Ayodhya which created much greater euphoria pan India than the “scrapping” of contentious provisions in Article 370. Bifurcation of the State into two UTs whose boundaries were extended up to Tibet by Maharaja Gulab Singh didn’t go well with any section of the population except Leh. It is viewed as political disempowerme...

Restoration of statehood to J&K
K N Pandita State Reorganization Act 2019 passed by the Parliament on 5 August 2019 with a huge majority vote came as a shock to the Kashmir valley leadership, the victims of split-personality. The bluster spelt out by Gupkar Declaration of August 4, 2019, like “the streams of blood will flow”, and “not a single man will be there to raise tricolour” foreboding, all evaporated in thin air when only 24 hours later, a bill purporting not only the scrapping of anti-people Article 370 but also breaking the State into two Union Territories was tabled in the Parliament. Next day, 6th of August, the bill was passed into an Act of Parliament with an overwhelming majority. With the pa...

India-Iran relations under strain
K.N. Pandita Iran has not officially announced dropping of India from Chahbahar's three-fold project. The buzz emanating from The Hindu is actually attributed to two middle rank Iranian officers but not to any senior official spokespersons. Hence, till date the buzz remains only a quasi-official rumour. Why should Iran think of punishing a third country (India) at its own cost for failure to mend fence with the US? If that is the parameter of Iranian poli-cy then India will look for available option to meet her oil requirements.And if Iran is willing to embrace the dragon who is hanging a US $ 400 billion carrot to her for taking over Chabahar and the ancillaries...

Repression on Uighur Muslims, Pakistan hails China
Straight Talk
K B Jandial How bizarre it is that the Islamic Republic of Pakistan is an all-weather allay of the People Republic of China which is brazenly indulging in repression on Muslims. Pakistan with its poor economy and a failed state always needed one block or the other for some special benefits, military or economical, for its survival as well as to ‘safeguard’ its sovereignty from external threats (pretending it to be from India which even historically had no expansionist designs). Conscious of its strategic geopolitical and geostrategic location, Pakistan, soon after independence in 1947, started signing one pact or the other and soon it became ‘ally of the West’ starting from Mutual D...

Geelani disassociates from Hurriyat: Story of ideological crisis
K.N. Pandita For quite some time Geelani was mute, maybe owing to advancing age problem like dementia. In a letter, scripted three months ago but released now to the heads of the eight units of his organization (Hurriyat – G), he made threadbare confession of his dissatisfaction with the units of his organization in both parts of the State. A diehard Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) standard-bearer, who trained some enthusiastic young Kashmiris in Jamaat ideology, like late Ayub Thukar and Ghulam Nabi Fai (respectively London and the US-based JI (Kashmir) activists, Geelani has always been an blunt pro-Pakistani leader of old school.
