(Open letter to the Prime Minister)

The patent rhetoric of the leaders in New Delhi and in Srinagar all these years has been that Pandits are integral to Kashmir social ethos. B...

Why not support Mehbooba on Accession & Pakistan?
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial Mehbooba Mufti is perhaps the first Chief Minister of J&K to publically hail J&K accession with union of India and that too in Kashmir. She even justified this decision in the backdrop of unending bloodshed in Pakistan and other Muslim countries. By all means, it is a big political statement coming from the first woman CM, often linked with “soft separatism” in her earlier avatar. It can become a turning point in the State’s political narrative. At her maiden public rally at Anantnag after becoming Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti said, “Sheikh Abdullah took th...
