UN Human Rights Commission discredits itself
K.N. Pandita For the first time in the history of Kashmir question at the UN, the Chairman of Human Rights Commission Mr. Zeid Ra’d Al Hussein of Jordan has issued a 49-page tutored report spread over 20 paragraphs on “abuse and violation of human rights” in the State of Jammu and Kashmir mainly by India and peripherally by Pakistan. The report is a forceful indictment of India, particularly her security forces operating in Kashmir. Why has the report come today after twenty-eight years of externally sponsored Theo-fascist activities in Kashmir that consumed so many innocent lives besides the ethnic cleansing of the valley of its religious minority of the Pandits? ...

Why doesn’t Kashmir stand up for Ramzan initiatives
Straight Talk
K B Jandial Will bloodshed in Kashmir ever come to an end? This soul searching question can be more appropriately rephrased. Will bloodshed in Kashmir be ever allowed to end? Answer to it would at least make you understand the complexities of Kashmir situation and the wide spread tentacles of “prophets of doom” within and outside Kashmir that put spokes in every peace initiative. Anti-peace brigade is the new development in Kashmir which spikes all such initiatives. But the unexplained issue is when Kashmir will stand up to this motley crowd of youngsters. Why the politicians have conveniently slipped into hibernation? They did it when minuscule KPs were forced to mig...

Straight Talk
K B Jandial With the passing of each day after Crime Branch’s (CB) filing of charge sheet in the communally sensitive gruesome Rasana rape and murder case, the crime story is getting murkier with daily revelation of contradictory facts and unanswered questions.

The claim of gang rape too has been questioned. This led to some change in perception at national and state level and also appreciation of demand for CBI probe. Politically and s...

Worst of all , he stands accused of that what he stood against and fought all his life despite grave and persistent ...

Article 370 will stay
Belated though, but a welcome development
B L Saraf What should have been asserted at the time when PDP- BJP coalition government took reigns in J&K has, alas, come when the dispensation is half way through. Union Minister of State for Home informed Lok Sabah on 27th March that “there was no proposal under consideration to scrap Article 370 which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir.” Though belated, it is a reassuring statement. We must welcome it. PM Modi has been talking about cooperative federalism. Pious declaration, indeed. But his four years governance record, unfortunately, suggests the opposite. If the intention has to translate it into reality then s...

Demographic ‘invasion’ unnerves tolerant, peaceful Jammu
Straight Talk
K B Jandial While the Constitution has made India a secular and democratic nation, political parties have negated this basic feature by dividing the people on sectarian lines and threatening peaceful coexistence of people of all religions and communities. They did it by exploiting religious, caste and regional susceptibilities of India’s innumerable communities and faiths through vote bank politics that serve the interest of particular groups of voters, often to the exclusion of the interest of others. Regrettably, no effective system is in existence to prevent use of sectarian card for petty political ends. J&K is no exception to divisive politics. Over the years, pol...
