Farooq sees threat to Kashmir identity
K.N. Pandita Addressing a party function at NC headquarters in Srinagar on 20 July, Farooq Abdullah, the Chairman of NC and former CM of J&K has sounded the alarm of grave threat to the identity of Kashmir presumably at the hands of the Central government. The tone and tenor of the address replicate the threatening speech delivered by his father, Sheikh Abdullah at R.S. Pora in 1953, days before his dismissal and arrest. Farooq has opened a plethora of accusations, bizarre allegations of conspiracies and blatant insinuations without specifying who his tormentor is. . Let us first sum up the allegations and then proceed to make a dispassionate analysis. These can be summarized a...

Successful Politics - Create enemies
B L Saraf There is nothing new about it .Text is the same but script has been modulated to suit the times . For some it is an art of possible : for others it is the management of impossibilities and for the remaining it is a craft perfected in manipulations and permutations . That is today’s Politics which we mortals suffer , day in and day out . By the way , Politics was never known for a worthy definition . About it someone said , long ago “ Politics as a practice , whatever its profession , has been the systematic organization of hatreds .” Today’s politician has perfected the idiom of hatred so well , leaving no middle way...

Reviewing Kashmiri Pandit narrative
K.N. Pandita Thirty years to date, the exiled community is going through a new experience of salt-rubbing into its wounds. The new Home Minister inaugurated his stint in the ministry with a comprehensive assessment of the situation in Kashmir, past and present. Recently, he was in Srinagar on his first official visit and is reported to have met with a host of people representing an array of interests. It appears that by some strange quirk of destiny a small section of central leadership has been showing some interest in Kashmiri Pandit narrative. By which angle they look at the exiled community is difficult to judge. Amit Shah made a somewhat ungenerous comment about the Pa...

The patriarch of exiled community is no more
K.N. Pandita The teacher, philosopher, ideologue and the patriarch, who conceived, publicized and nurtured the concept of Pandit Homeland soon after our exile in 1990 has departed. For nearly thirty years Professor Teng and I were colleagues at the University of Kashmir, he was in the Political Science Department while I was at the Centre of Central Asian Studies. There was hardly a week when we did not meet in his office room, sipped mugs of coffee and talked endlessly on a variety of subjects, especially current politics, Kashmir situation, Indian and international affairs. I learnt more and more in each sitting over those long years and I have befitted immensely from it. He was bl...

A churning in the Congress
K.N. Pandita Rahul Gandhi’s resignation issue in the aftermath of Congress’ second consecutive defeat in the parliamentary election was dramatized for several weeks, albeit unnecessarily. People in the country and especially several rungs of the Congress hierarchy knew he had no option but to be out. Rahul tried to win as much sympathy as he could from the younger generation in his organization which was evident when he mentioned that some senior Congress leaders were pushing their wards, obviously against his wishes because he did not like the path blocked for the younger Congressmen. The resignation dramatics and the grand finale made it clear that there is deep dissension with...

BJP’s Kashmir agenda
K.N. Pandita If the Home Minister’s Kashmir priority is outside media hype, it passes for the much-delayed initiative of tackling the issue at brass-tacks. Without questioning his sagacity, the deskbook rule is that astute statecraft does not permit overdoing issues howsoever listed as a priority. Away from other Kashmir related matters bouncing at the Home Ministry, two current events invite our attention. One is the detailed report on Kashmir –- things are done or to be done under Governor’s rule – to the Niti Ayog with strong advocacy for a “special NE - type package: for J&K”. What is new in that? Nothing: J&K has been breathing through the oxygen chamber installed by Nehru in the ...
