5 myth’s and facts of kashmir

Myth:

one lakh people have been killed in Kashmir by Indian armed forces during past 20 years.

Fact:

As per government estimates as on 20-05-2010,Statistics reveal that nearly 37,000 people have been killed so far in the 20 year old insurgency. Out of 37,000, the number of civilians killed by terrorists and para military forces are 11,135,security forces number at 5223 and terrorists backed by Pakistan killed are 19,273.

The propaganda by separatists backed by Pakistan is just a myth to mislead the gullible common man of Kashmir and incite hatred against central government administration.

Myth:

there are Mass graves in Kashmir

Fact:

This is just another figment of imagination of drug addicts and has nothing to do with reality. So far No mass grave has been uncovered and chances are very slim to uncover any such grave.If ever a mass grave is unearthed in Kashmir, the prime suspects will be Pakistan supported terrorists. Reason being,  Indian para military forces mostly constitute Hindus and hindus don’t bury their dead…

Myth:

separatists leaders are sincere

Fact:

Many Separatist leaders  have embezzled  funds and have assets disproportionate  to their disclosed earnings. Some of the separatists leaders are owners of large shopping complexes in Kashmir. Those shopping complexes are worth tens of crores of rupees. If sincerity means changing tunes  to the tastes of audiences,then Old man geelani is sincere,Mr Geelani gets his pension as former MLA of J&k, and holds a Indian Passport, suddenly had a change of heart in 2008 during the height of Amarnath  agitation, when he shifted his stance of Kashmir accession to Pakistan to Independence of Kashmir.

Myth:

Jagmohan responsible for Kashmiri pandit exodus

Fact:

It was at Mufti Mohammed syed’s behest,who was Home Minister of India, that Jagmohan was made governor of J&K  for the second time in 1989-1990.I have not come across a single Kashmiri pandit whom jagmohan or his officials/agents approached or pursued to leave Kashmir so that he can have a free hand and run Tanks and Bulldozers over kashmiri Muslims(most famous rumor against Jagmohan). Yasin Malik”  who got inspired with the movie “Lion of the desert” and has confessed that he showed this movie to Hizbul-Mujahideen Chief “Salauddin” and inspired him also to launch the Kashmiri version of “Jihad”.

In this movie there is this character ” General Rodolfo Graziani” who hanged “Omar Mukhtar” to Death. Later on “Rodolfo Graziani”became the commander-in-chief of Italian Royal army.

“General Rodolfo Graziani” had made concentration camps in Libya to curb the uprising against Italians.

When Mr Jagmoha  became the governor of Jammu and Kashmir for the second time, Terrorist lobby backed by Pakistan, told the section of kashmiri muslims who backed their violent ideologue of Jihad,that “Jagmohan” is going to run Bulldozers over you and kill each one of you because of  being anti-India,(portrayed as Rodolfo Graziani) and at the same time is helping pandits to migrate to Jammu.This story is just a figment of imagination of some who wanted to shield the truth about exodus and Genocide of Kashmiri Pandits by the Terrorists.

Myth:

Freedom struggle of Kashmir

Fact :

Another hogwash, Pakistan is using the muslim dominated Kashmir for its own selfish use, They have waged a low cost war with India and Majority population of Kashmir are merely puppets in this whole game. Killing of Kashmiri pundits in early 1990,which triggered the infamous exodus, was a game plan of Islamic state of Pakistan as Kashmiri pundits were the only force which were opposing them. The total population of Muslims in J&k is around 5 million whereas in rest of India, the population of Muslims is around 140 to 180 million. The collective muslim population of U.P districts like Muzzafarnagar, meerut, Bijnore, Moradabad and Rampur are at least thrice the population of Whole muslim population of J&k, yet they are at peace with India. These muslims choose to stay with India when they were given a chance to choose their country way back in 1947.Pakistan’s tactic of using Islam as a force to infuse hatred for India has met with success in Kashmir and received lukewarm response among muslims  in other parts of India. Pakistan is hell bent to use the religious feeling of muslims against India and its persistent efforts in the last 63 years has started to show some positive results for Pakistan.

kashmir terrorists gets pay hike

Interesting news! Pakistan had to hike the pay  of terrorists operating in Kashmir. But still Rs 8-10k/month is just peanuts compared to its regular Army men.On the name of Jihad,Pakistan has successfully operated this tactics of low cost war with India from last two decades.Also in this case,Pakistan will not be held responsible for terrorist attacks in India,they will project the violence as Jihad.Pakistan would definitely want the world to be in deep slumber and never wake to the fact that in whole of J&K,the total population of Muslims is not more than 5 million,whereas the larger picture visibly shows India as home to 140 million, non-kashmiri  ,happy , Indian muslims….

NEW DELHI: Kashmiri terrorists and refugees from Jammu and Kashmir in PoK have both received a pay hike. According to the latest inputs from various agencies, Pakistani authorities are now offering terrorists coming to fight in J&K a monthly salary in the range of Rs 8,000 to Rs 10,000. This is a huge jump from the average pay of Rs 5,000 they were getting earlier.

The reason for this benevolence is not hard to imagine. There has been a drastic drop in violence levels in J&K and militancy needs a desperate revival if the separatist agenda has to continue to grab global attention. The number of terrorists operating in J&K is now hovering around 700, an all-time low since militancy erupted in the state in the late 80s.

The desperation among terror groups is also visible in the return of Furqan, one of the seniormost Lashkar-e-Taiba operatives who had been the group’s launch commander based in PoK for some years now. He infiltrated into J&K in April-end with a group but the Army was able to intercept them. Furqan is believed to have successfully evaded the Army and entered the state. His return, after more than four years, is being seen as a sign of LeT’s desperation to carry out a few sensational attacks.

It is not just the Kashmiri militants who got pay hikes in recent days. Those staying back in refugee camps of PoK too have been given increased financial benefits. From Rs 1,800 per month, their financial allowance has gone up to Rs 2,400 a month early this year, sources said.

Thousands of Kashmiri youth have moved across the border to PoK in the past two decades for the explicit purpose of becoming trained militants. But many of them have stayed back in refugee maintenance camps run by the Pakistan government, some marrying local girls, and many starting small businesses. There are no clear numbers, but some estimates say as many as 30,000 could be in PoK, holding state subject facility cards which grants them certain rights.

While inflation is an obvious reason for the hike in monthly allowance for the refugees, the desire of many of them to return to India may have also been a reason for increasing the allowance, officials speculate. In 2007, when Indian government opened up a liberal surrender policy for Kashmir, almost 150 of them came back. After a year, the policy was tightened, but sources now say that they are looking at revising it. An exodus of these refugees from PoK to J&K would hit Pakistan’s image, say officials.
