Kashmir rebellion:Then and Now
By Amit Kushari When the first Kashmir rebellion broke out in 1990/91 the situation was very, very grim at that time also and J&K had to remain under President’s rule for six years at a stretch. Curfews continued for one or two weeks and street battles went on, sometimes with rockets and grenades also, in addition to AK 47 guns. The Kashmiri homes are usually well stocked with food because of prolonged harsh winters and so they could manage their kitchen even if curfew continued for ten or twelve days. Early morning some vegetable vendors would secretly arrive to do some brisk business and some meat and chicken shops would also open for an hour or so. The Masjid Committees in the...

How ironic , that Azad and Omar should queer the pitch when worst happened during their rule in 2008 and 2010 , respectively . Then , we didn’t find these words in their vocabulary .

Genesis of Kashmir unrest
By K.N. Pandita Inexplicable suspense loomed large over Kashmir politics this early summer. With the demise of Mufti Sayeed, stakeholders began making speculation about the shape and stability of the new Government.

Later events showed that in all probability PDP was grappling more with inner conflicts than having any serious disagreement with BJP. Jamat-i-Islami, with its stronghold in South Kashmir, had lent support to branded PDP candidates in assembly elections, but now had fears that it...

And the ruling BJP spokespersons swung into action immediately to parrot it as a great path breaking speech, honest feedback of Kashmiris notwithstanding. Its ally, PDP, gave a guarded reaction—welcome the statement but looking forward...

Not shy to talk to militants in 1999, in 2016 why should Mehbooba ji ...

Good terrorists and bad terrorists

He also said that Pakistan is not allowing the situation to improve in J& K (yeh padosi hai ki maanta nahi). That terrorism is an unfortunate development in today’s world goes without saying.
