(Open letter to the Prime Minister)
By K.N. Pandita Honourable Prime Minister, Return and Rehabilitation of the displaced community from the Valley of Kashmir in the aftermath of armed insurgency of 1990, occasionally comes up for consideration at the level of State and Central governments. For last two decades, official circles have not been able to hammer out a viable formula for their rehabilitation. The reason is that a human problem has been politicized. 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...

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...

By K B Jandial It is indeed difficult, albeit impossible, for the political rulers in hyper sensitive State of J&K to be away from controversies and those who wish to keep these at arm’s length can still be dragged into these either by the media or the circumstances beyond control.

In less than two weeks, Kashmir saw two serious incidents, both unfortunate and condemnable, that posed toug...
