Governor , as a spokesman of the Centre , has batted for the reconciliation which may allow the eluding peace to hold on to the ground , rather permanently .

Modi 2.0 And Jammu & Kashmir
B L Saraf Now that period of jubilation for those who have come out with flying colors and the days of mourning for those who have bitten the dust in the just concluded national elections are over , it is time to pause a while and reflect upon what we experienced in run up to the elections and what is likely to follow - as a consequence of the massive mandate Narrandtra Modi got from the people of India . Campaign was indeed shrill and polarizing . Thankfully , now that is behind us . The nation has seen the spectacular Narrandra Modi victory in the 2019 General Elections . All keen observers are agreed that this will mark a new chapter in the history...

We have seen in the past and continue to see it today . Indifference of other parts of t...

Will UN listing of Azhar Masood impact Kashmir militancy?
Straight Talk
K B Jandial While India is genuinely jubilant over UN listing of the dreaded terrorist and founder of Pakistan based Jaish-e-Mohammed, Azhar Masood as a global terrorist on May 1, 2019, it would be too naïve to expect any immediate impact on Kashmir militancy, Governor Satya Pal Malik’s assessment notwithstanding. It is decidedly the high mark of Indian diplomacy and a successful culmination of ten years of Indian efforts to seek international sanctions against him and his terrorist organisation even though the compromised UN resolution didn’t mention any of JeM’s terrorist activities in Kashmir. However, it cannot be denied that dastardly Pulwama terror strike of February 14, 2...

Valley leadership on secessionist course
K.N. Pandita Valley’s leading political parties participating in the parliamentary and later on in the assembly elections in Kashmir, despite the boycott calls often given by the known separatists and secessionists, have lately found a pretext behind which they are giving vent to what they have been at pains to hide over the years. NC and PDP heavyweights both have publicly and to the media said that if Article 370 or 35-A are abolished, Kashmir will rejoice on God-sent (read Pakistan-sent) separation from the Indian Union. The choice for the leadership and the people in Kashmir in such a situation would be (a) to declare secession from the Indian Union of the State of ...

Articles 370 & 35A stay or not, J&K stays in India
Straight Talk
K B Jandial The present unprecedented political slugfest on contentious Articles 370 & Art 35A has crossed all redlines with Mehbooba Mufti threatening to secede the day these Articles are abrogated or even tinkled with. It is common with Mehbooba after BJP’s withdrawal from North-Pole-South-Pole alliance Govt, to lash out at Modi, BJP and even Delhi on one count or the other. She has been warning that there would be no one in J&K(includes Jammu & Ladakh also) to give shoulder (kandda) to Tricolour if special status is touched, forgetting that J&K is not any Kashmiri leader’s fiefdom. Moreover,kandda is given to a deceased and our National flag can never die, even in Kashmi...

“Hum Nibhalenge”: says Congress Manifesto
K.N. Pandita On Tuesday, Congress President formally released the party's manifesto for the J&K State titled “Congress will deliver”. The question is not of “delivering”; it is of accepting what is delivered. What the Congress has promised to deliver is an upgraded appeasement package this time wrapped in silk-soft packing stuff. The title “Hum Nibhayenge” carries the subtle meaning that “we shall accommodate you”. Has not Congress accommodated Kashmiris ever since the accession, and of course, at the expense of the other two regions and valley minority sections? In a Sheetalnath (Srinagar) Pandit rally in 1946, Nehru told the large gathering of the Pandits that the only way of s...
