Why not celebrate Accession Day Officially?
Straight Talk
K. B. Jandial In an interview with a national daily, Governor Satya Pal Malik has admitted that “India has made mistakes…” in Kashmir. No one can dispute it. One of the “mistakes” is the confusion created on J&K’s Accession for which the nation is paying heavily till date. Accession is integral to Kashmir solution. Constitutionally and politically, there is absolutely no confusion on the finality of Accession but the pampered Kashmir based mainstream politicians continue to harp on ‘conditional’ Accession as if it can be revoked at their whims which privilege even the Maharaja didn’t have. Maharaja Hari Singh signed the same Instrument of Accession (IoA) acceding J&K to Ind...

Straight Talk
K. B. Jandial None of the past 12 Governors of J&K has spoken as candidly as the incumbent Governor Satya Pal Malik has been doing ever since he was sworn in on 23 August this year. Many a times, it appeared that the Governor has transcended the constitutional boundaries of the coveted office he holds but then, nowadays some Governors are seen to even speaking on TV channels through ‘phone-in’ while some others have raked up controversies by publically speaking against the State Governments, they constitutionally headed. When the new Governor publically spoke for the first time at the launch of India Post Payments Bank facility at SKICC on 1st October, 2018, it was tak...

Pakistan Constitution and Human Rights: inherent contradiction
K.N. Pandita UN Secretary General, now on a visit to India, pontificates that India should take care of human rights in Kashmir.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations is actually the Magna Charta of minority rights. It urges member States to institutionalize protection and promotion of human rights of its citizens without discrimination. Pakistan is signat...

Good will dialogue before political dialogue
K.N. Pandita As India announced cancellation of the proposed foreign ministers’ sit together on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session, Pakistani media has gone berserk in bringing accusations against India that she is not interested in contributing to peace process in the region.

Who does Islamabad want to convince by such wishful claptrap, Washington, London, Moscow or Beijing? Who has been calling Pakistan the epicentre of global terrorism? Where was the master-mind of contemporary terrorism discovered and kill...

When will peace process in Kashmir succeed?
Straight Talk
K B Jandial Amidst a mild political crisis of the sort created by Kashmir based two major mainstream parties- NC & PDP- by their boycott of Municipal and Panchayat elections after initially hailing these as “empowering people”, on the belated pretext of lack of clarity of Govt of India’s stand on Article 35A of Constitution of India in and outside Supreme Court hearing petitions challenging it, IIPA had organised an illuminating lecture on “Peace Process in Jammu & Kashmir” (only Kashmir). The lecture linked peace process, inter alia, to democratic processes in Kashmir since 1996 Lok Sabha Poll which incidentally was also boycotted by the NC but it joined the subsequent Ass...

Interrupted Peace Process and the Way Forward
Dr Ashok Bhan Peace process in Jammu and Kashmir began circa 1995 with resumption of political activities leading to the assembly election of 1996 and formation of an elected Government after a prolonged Governor/President’s rule. It peaked off with assembly elections of 2014. For a variety of reasons this election was an important milestone in the peace initiative.

Credible electoral exercises had substantially reduced the ‘democratic deficit’. A huge voter turnout, even in constituencies with sizeable separatists’ influence, was a testimony to the faith in ...
