What is Gupkar Alliance fighting for?
K.N. Pandita Gupkar lobby’s utterance is in effect the dirge for the demise of dynastic rule and power. The dynamics of history is that old order changes yielding place to new. This is as true about the Sheikh’s house as that of Maharaja Hari Singh. The history repeated itself after seventy-three years. Nations enjoy permanence but not the monarchs or their glamour. Farooq presumes he can undo this universal truth by a show of mob movement. But his popularity is an enigma. It has come to him essentially from being the son of late Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah though many Kashmiris are strongly apathetic to dynastic rule. Dispassionately speaking, his contribution to Kashmir his...

South Asian conundrum- strategies and statesmanship
K N Pandita China made a grave miscalculation in opening front against India in the Eastern Ladakh. It shows that PLA has turned into a typecast unable to keep pace with the dynamics of changing world order. Her intrusive economic ventures globally have induced many developed countries in the West to look for the protection and perpetuation of their commercial wellbeing. Beijing’s miscalculations are twofold. It towed with its outmoded and unrealistic calculation of India’s ability to defend her borders competently, and secondly, it wrongly overestimated the effectiveness of Indian opposition. Both of these miscalculations stem from lack of democratic experience. The East...

Gilgit and Baltistan: Pak’s new move on status
K.N. Pandita India and Pakistan agreed to a ceasefire in J&K on the night of 30-31 December 1948. India minced no words and claimed that the Maharaja had signed the Instrument of Accession of his entire state to the Indian Union and the latter pronounced J&K as an integral part of the Indian Union. But Pakistan stuck to a different stance. She maintained that PoK meaning the part of the State-controlled by her in the post-ceasefire period was an independent entity and not an integral part of Pakistan. In a historic decision, the High Court of PoK declared that Gilgit-Baltistan was part of the original State of Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan took the case to its Supreme Court. ...

Are we really honoring Dogra martyrs?
Straight Talk
K.B. Jandial Third November was the Balidan Divas of Maj. Somnath Sharma, first recipient of India’s highest gallantry award, Param Vir Chakra (posthumously). Commissioned in 19th Hyderabad Regiment (rechristened as 4th Kumaon Regiment of Indian Army) in 1942, he exhibited exceptional valour and leadership qualities, “seldom equaled in the history of Indian Arm” and laid down his life at the age of 25 years while defending Srinagar city and the Airport in 1947 Kashmir operations. He had committed: “I shall not withdraw an inch but will fight to the last man and the last round." And that’s what he did and saved Srinagar Airport & State’s capital. Another Balidan Divas was on...

Alliance’s U-turn on DDC election
K.N. Pandita The angst expressed by the originators of Gupkar Declaration I and II need to thin out and become perceptional. Leaders long in seats of power tend to become an institution by default for good or mundane whatever. The Gupkar Gang, as their detractors would like to call them, belong to that specie of humanity. Reconsidering the blunder of boycotting Panchayat elections previously, the opposition parties have changed the course of their approach to the ongoing political scenario in Kashmir. This we presume is a healthy sign because what can be achieved through the normal democratic process cannot be achieved through unleashing of violence. We consider it a good move...

While as former argument has a ring of predictability in it as this is said of every new political formation which threatens to dislodge an established one , latter has an undertone of optimism – may be an exaggerated one . The PAGD has been formed , reportedly , with the purpose to safeguard Constitutional and democratic rights of the people in erstwhile...

Muslim tirade against French President
K.N. Pandita Last week saw a widespread outburst of the people in many Muslim countries against the President of French Republic Mr Emmanuel Macron. In certain cases like Pakistan, the mobs after Friday prayers became uncontrollable and turned violent so much so that the authorities had to deploy riot force to control the unruly mobs. The leaders of protesting nations lost no time in denouncing President Macron for what they call “disrespecting the Prophet and humiliating Islamic religion” When the Pakistani Prime Minister, the Turkish President, Malaysia's ex-Prime Minister and other senior leaders orchestrated this allegation, their masses took the cue and brought out huge dem...

Insulting Tiranga, Chinese help won’t restore Article 370
Straight Talk
K B Jandial Last fortnight witnessed objectionable comments of two prominent Kashmiri leaders, Mehbooba Mufti & Dr. Farooq Abdullah which stirred huge controversy and slugfest leading to demand for their arrest by local BJP leaders. While Mehbooba again ‘insulted’ the Tricolor by refusing to ‘own’ it untill restoration of state flag, Dr. Abdullah craved for China’s support to restore Article 370. These are not just off-the-cuff comments but well thought provocative ones. These are either their sheer frustration or part of calculated move to politically rehabilitate them, individually as well as collectively, after the people of Kashmir appeared to have turned their back to these ...
