The alienation of Kashmir

#PareshRawal‘s tweet has created a furore on twitter.
#Kashmir is story written in blood, unfortunately it has been the blood of the common kashmiri, whether a muslim or a pandit. It’s so called leaders, both within the state and outside of it are oblivious to the pain and the helplessness of such kashmiris.
Article 370 has done irreparable damage to Kashmir and the process to integrate it with India. No wonder Dr Ambedkar had refused to draft it. Today for any government, including the current one, it will be impossible to revoke article 370. Though the rhetoric to do so, has been on since at least my lifetime.
During my college years, I had read about Governor Jagmohan’s strong headed approach towards law and order, which was applauded then, but today seems like one of the major reasons for a Kashmiri to lose faith in Indian governance. A sensitive approach by politicos, would have perhaps helped India. The Abdullahs have been ineffective, and are no match compared to Sheikh Abdullah. they are just thriving in politics as part of inheritance.
1984 ant-sikh riots, 1992 babri riots led to further alienation of the kashmiri youth, misled by the separatists like Geelani, Lone and Yasin Malik.
Only if our leaders, both Indian and Pakistanis, look forward to the future and work jointly, can instill some peace in this wonderful state..
As for twitter wars, they are just that, five minutes of fame or eyeballs for participants. #ArundhatiRoy #PareshRawal #SwaraBhaskar
naye kirdaar aate jaa rahe hai..
magar naatak purana chal raha hai..
As for Kashmir, the apt verse is …
dekhonge to har mod pe mil jayengi lashe,
dhoondoge to is shahr main qatil na milega..
