omar,Anna Hazare and KP’s

Anna Hazare did it again! Once again he was able to galvanize people from all walks of life, he was able to merge their voices into one voice-voice of India- His non-voilent way of protesting against Sarkari Lok pal Bill proved to be too much for the Government and the “sarkar” yielded to the sentiments of the People .As Anna Said,”This is not the full victory but Half victory”, full victory will only be achieved once the government clears the bill proposed by the civil society or should I say “Anna Hazare”. For two weeks people from all walks of life supported Anna, I saw common man coming to streets in villages, towns as well as in cities, The “anna Effect” was seen everywhere, with many scholars terming this movement as an epoch for young India. It was a very disciplined movement and everyone irrespective of their caste, creed or religion participated, no one was disparaged at least on the basis of their caste or religion.

Not too far away in Kashmir, politicians and religious leaders were keeping an watch on this whole movement and thinking hard to use the present “Anna Effect” for their use. Chief minister of J&k  tweeted on Anna in a very diplomatic way, But things changed a bit when High court of Tamil Nadu stayed the execution of three convicts  for killing late Mr. Rajiv Gandhi in May 1991.Mr. Omar Abdullah tweeted “If J&K Assembly had passed a resolution similar to the Tamil Nadu one for Afzal Guru would the reaction have been as muted? I think not,” There was lot of hue and cry especially from BJP, Who have strongly advocated that the death sentence of Afzal guru should be carried out as soon as possible.

Afzal Guru was incriminated in Parliament attack ( 2001) and was sentenced to death by both high court as well as supreme court of India. The majority of Kashmiri muslims have a soft corner for Afzal Guru and his execution or saving his life will have a huge effect on the vote bank of Jammu and Kashmir. The question remains “ will Afzal Guru be hanged? Ever?”.I think “NO”….Never, Not even if BJP comes to power.

Afzal guru is a “hot potato” and no politician will open this Pandora box. During last 9-10 years he has become a hot political point both with the ruling party as well as the opposition. The ruling party seems to have given a tacit approval for delaying his death sentence whereas the opposition have raised his issue several times vociferously.

Another Omar- the Maulvi, in the eid celebration gathering has emphatically urged “Anna” to lend his support for the alleged “mass graves” of Kashmir.!Is it possible that behind the curtains, Arundhati roy may have played the role of pedagogue to sepratist think tank and thus  the  political appeal to Anna Hazare by Maulvi Omar!It is a known fact that she supports the separatist movement of Kashmir . She has not digested the huge following of masses for Anna  and  thus alleged that Anna movement was run by the RSS and the media. God save the world from megalomaniacs!!!  the role of another “judas” Swami Agnivesh(fraud swamy) also can not be ruled out in this whole episode ,as he is also a known supporter of the Kashmiri separatists .I have heard the he has slipped quietly into “vipassana ” , well,it may be an excuse after all that happened which exposed him as a “black sheep”, good for him to introspect…

Are there any mass graves in Kashmir? I don’t know but if there are any such graves, it should come in the notice of general public. Let truth prevail. …..by the way,Some of the leaders like Sajjad lone, and Maulvi Omar faroq have in the past directly or indirectly accused the separatists for killing their Father while as Prof. Abdul Ghani Bhat accused the separists of killing his Brother.What keeps these bigot leaders away from raising their voices and getting justice from the law, when they know who killed their father and brother! Has the prospect of coming to power politically, choked their voice of truth and their conscience..

The forced exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from their motherland by these separatist leaders is a stark reality for me, I was a witness to one of the most shameful acts by these demagogues. The house where I was born , the house where I spent my childhood, That house was snatched from me .Those temples where I  genuflected and prayed to god are in ruins now, the schools run by Pandits were burnt by these so called freedom fighters, But no body stood by me because I was a Kashmiri Pandit.

The initial years after I became a refugee in my own country, were worse, I was a witness to the misery of my brethren, I was a witness to the old generation’s yearn to see their motherland at least once, I was a witness to Shame on being a Kashmiri Pandit,I was the witness of that frustration and helplessness of the youth,I was also the witness of Government apathy towards my community for leaving away Kashmir and not saying “Pakistan Zindabad”

Now after more than 21 years in exile, Kashmiri Pandit has learned to live without physically being in Kashmir, But that does not mean they have altogether forgotten Kashmir,  the return may take another deacde or even decades , but the terms and conditions for return will be my own .By given jobs to Kashmiri Pandits the government of J&k is  confusing the government at the center ,as this will not facilitate their permanent return to Kashmir.The government at the state and the centre need to retrace that path through which a KP fled Kashmir. It should be noted that not a single Kp left Kashmir because of lack of government jobs for them, The mass exodus of Pandits had nothing to do with jobs, Their exodus was the result of Target killing of Pandits by the so called Islami Jihadis ,and JKLF tops the list of that terrorist organization which hunted down the pundits for the sheer pleasure. Give Kashmiri pundits Justice first!

Call to  “Anna” ,by the anti-India separatist  leader,  to unearth the so called mass graves in Kashmir is a way to grab the attention of the nation as well as media.some of these so called leaders even claimed that two lakh kashmiri people got killed, and others exaggerated on the number of women raped by the armed forces,But these separatists have alwaysremained mute spectators, when  people were killed by militants or when women were raped by militants.This cunning duplicity is a blot on the character of these so called leaders, in fact calling such people leaders is  a misnomer.These people who yearn and live to see the Balkanisation of India need to introspect -especially those who are responsible for the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits.Let them first muster the courage to fight against their own who are responsible for the death of their kith and Kin….

but above all let truth prevail…..

Ms. Roy and Her love For Kashmiri Pandits

I am not a expert in International affairs nor am I a member of some esoteric groups of intelligentsia. I am not even affiliated to any political or religious groups who can talk for hours on Kashmir based on their vicarious knowledge, But as a Kashmiri I supersede the above mentioned groups as the existing problem is directly centered around me and my place of birth…..Kashmir.
The last six months have brought Kashmir back on the center stage and I am sure the policy makers of India and Pakistan must be burning many mid night lamps in order to device new tactics and strategies to settle this issue and thus score a point over each other.
Indian democracy is the largest democracy in the world and thus there is a lot of freedom for raising different voices irrespective of their nationalist views or anti-national diatribes. The role of Chinese and ISI cannot be ruled out in funding those groups whose only aim is to Balkanize India. We all know 7 lakh Kashmiri Hindus were forced to leave their hearth and homes in wake of the terrorist activities by a section of Kashmiri Muslims who killed tens of hundreds of Kashmiri Hindus. We are also aware of carnages carried out by Naxalites and Maoists who killed with impunity and without compunction. section of Bodos,Nagas,Tamils and some Khalistanis have also beeen known to use more voilent ways  in order to prove their point.
But things are changing. With majority of people disapproving the violent ways , a new breed of Terrorists have mushroomed, who advocate openly to Balkanization of India. Recently I also attended one such function in new Delhi. The name of the function was” Azaadi-the only way”. It was organized by anti-Indians and this was my first experience of modern terrorists. It consisted of Ex-Khalistanis,Kashmir’s Hurriyat,A splinter group of Tamils, Maoists, Naxalites, Nagas and more..It was intellectual terrorism at its best. The high point of the whole function was when someone from the crowd flew his slippers towards syed Ali Shah Geelani. Those slippers became a huge “hit” with the Media and everything else got shadowed by those slippers.
Noted writer Ms. Arurdathi roy had also come though she came 2 hours late. She has won a “Booker prize” for her book ”the god of small things” in 1997.However it is noteworthy that she could not make any ripples in the literary world or media again after this book, which makes it look highly suspicious that even the above mentioned book may be a classical act of plagiarism. Only, God of small things know…..Meanwhile, She also spew hatred against India.
All this happened in the capital of India in the police protection provided by Government of India. Those who opposed their devious act were swiftly rounded by the Police and packed to Jail at Parliament street, New Delhi. This convocation raised many eyebrows, and a justification was sought from the government. As usual, nothing happened…
Though Ms. Roy gave her justification from Kashmir some days later wherein she reiterated her support to Geelani’s Hurriyat who want to merge Kashmir with Pakistan.


What surprised many was her remark on Kashmiri Pandits as she said,” for Kashmiri Pandits who live out the tragedy of having been driven out of their homeland”

 

It hit me like a Boxer’s Punch .It is well known that she has no affinity for Kashmiri Pandits because we are contrary to what she supports in Kashmir..”Azaadi”.She should understand that under UN Resolution Kashmir has only two choices, to be with India or to be with Pakistan. there is no provision for Azaadi and Syed Ali Shah Geelani knows it very well. She advocated Geelani’s plebiscite, which is not possible in present times as Pakistan has changed the entire population ratio in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, just like China did in Tibet. The indigenous population of POK has been marginalized. The other communities in J&K do not want to be Pakistan. She must understand that Dogras, Gujjars, dards, Shias,Sikhs and Ladhakis are more than happy with India. She should also understand that Kashmir valley constitutes only 8-10% of the total area of Jammu and Kashmir.
The remark was also a crass because she shares the common dais with those who are prime responsible for the genocide and exodus of Kashmiri Hindus. Her remark was lacking genuine sincerity and were just words, a mere lip service for beleaguered community who are living like refugees in their own country…..
If her heart feels the pain of Kashmiri Hindus, she should raise her voice for our cause also. Let me remind her that we want “Panun Kashmir”.. our Homeland. Panun Kashmir is a cherished dream of 7 lakh Kashmiri Hindus who want homeland within Kashmir, with a union territory status, no article 370 and full flow of Indian constitution. The homeland is also a necessity because we have seen 7 exoduses during last 5-6 hundred years due to stringent Islamic sharia…Till then, Ms. Roy, Kindly spare us, because we are not “Bookhe” or “Nangey”(Hungry and stark, without clothes), we are not even Maoists or Naxalites,or ex-Khalistanis or Nagas and above everything else “our hearts still beat for India”…..
