 Debate
Deteriorating situation in Kashmir
By K.N. Pandita Kashmir is in the news. In New Delhi and Srinagar, helmsmen are in close consultation. Political situation in the Valley has deteriorated. Separatists are agog with joy. Sustained civilian unrest and recurring armed clashes with terrorists, give grist to human rights violation propaganda, with buyers at home and abroad. Opposition to Modi Government in Kashmir valley is hydra-headed, subtler than that of the opposition brigades in the rest of the country. Terrorists choose new targets and novel tactics of assault ever since the killing of Hizb Commander last July in South Kashmir. Police men are attacked and gunned down in their homes. Home Department’...

Deferment of by-poll
By B L Saraf Election commission has deferred by – election for Anantnag Parliamentary constituency, scheduled for 12th April. The postponement has come in the wake of poll boycott and violence seen during voting for Srinagar parliamentary segment, on 9th April. As per the Commission’s Notification, voting will now be held on 25th May. Postponement of election is not unheard of. In the past, for various reasons, many a time election to the Assembly or the Parliamentary seats, across the country, has been deferred. Cancellation of RK Nagar Assembly election in TN is the latest example. Normally, there is nothing unusual in the postponement. But in Kashmir ‘ the normal’...

Will Kashmir choose Tourism over Terrorism?
By K B Jandial There is an old catchphrase: he came, he saw and he conquered! This is precisely what happened with PM Modi when he addressed a huge public meeting at Udhampur on last Sunday after inaugurating India’s longest 9.2 km Chenani-Nashri tunnel. But it applies only to Jammu region and not to Kashmir. It was an occasion for Modi’s outreach to Kashmiris, more precisely Kashmiri stone pelters, and as usual he was perfect, hitting the bull’s eye. He invoked everything from Vajpayee’s famous and much quoted Kashmiriyat, Jamhuriyat and Insaniyat to ‘power of stone’ to reducing the distance, both physical and emotional, between Kashmir and rest of India. True to his sty...

The road to national resurgence
By K N Pandit Isn’t our democracy still in embryonic stage? Transformation of an ancient Asiatic country of heterogeneous complexion into a modern state is a lengthy and painstaking process. Moreover, a mindset shaped by many centuries of slavery to alien rule takes its time for restoration to equilibrium. By assuming that our democracy is in bloom we only allow ourselves to fall a prey to willing suspension of disbelief. This not withstanding our country had made reasonably good start in spite of experimental flaws in our domestic and foreign policy during formative years. Idealism is all right in its place but statesmanship demands pragmatism. It asks for extraordinary r...

Towards a United India
By Amit Kushari When we became independent in 1947, we had decided to give ourselves a democratic and secular state where people speaking different languages and professing different religions and belonging to different castes would stay together happily without any discrimination. Nehru and Ambedkar were leading us those days and so our constitution has clearly visible evidence of the liberal egalitarian mind set of these two great leaders of India. A large number of Muslims had left India for their newly created cherished homeland of Pakistan which was perceived as their peaceful centre of faith (Markaz e yaqeen) where they could live with dignity without having to fear the dom...

JK calls for PM’s attention
By B L Saraf Narendra Modi’s phenomenal rise from a small time party worker to the highest executive post in India is, largely, attributed to his “disruptive innovations which he has mastered as political tools to capture the imagination of rapidly changing polity.” That is why he has been delivering almost every election victory to the BJP, ever since he assumed power in Gujarat, in 2000. That Modi is a decisive leader was never in doubt. His recent decision of unusual character which caused a disruption in the economic activity, having stood the test at the bar of people has reaffirmed such a belief. People, in general, admire a decisive leader, even if his decision loo...

Geelani’s kin gets Govt job, other youth bullets!
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial While the BJP is upbeat over “congress mukt” results in four of the five states that went to the poll, Kashmir, unmindful of these political upheavals, is having a counter narrative even though major political parties (& also the separatists) are preparing for electoral battle in Srinagar and Anantnag Lok Sabha by-poll. The dangerous narrative in Kashmir has nothing to do with the just concluded electoral semi-final or the current by-poll. Killing of a 15-year old Aamir Nazir Wani on 9th March this year in police action-firing on stone throwing young pr...
