Indian national response to Kashmiri freedom graffiti and a song for freedom.

Palash Biswas

We must condemn the fascist zionist attacks against fundamental right to freedom of expression.Kashmir is an integral part of India and every Indian citizen has every right to express his opinion on government`s repressive measures there which violates human rights..Nay body may differ from Mr Prashant Bhushan.It is a democracy.But the attack against AAP is very very dangerous and it this incident showcases the danger of the Hindu Rashrta which formulates Tax Holiday for the Black Money and Capital.We do not support AAP or Mr Kejriwal and my stance remains unchanged.But we stand united with AAP for its leaders to express their opinion and their right to govern as an elected government.

In the context of Indo-Pak dialogue, there are three parties to the dispute-India, Pakistan & People of Jammu and Kashmir and the international community represented by UN is the Umpire . The role of two countries, India & Pakistan is limited to talking & making atmosphere conducive to determining the wish of the people of J&K. Even If any of the two parties out of these three like India & Pakistan decide to put the dispute beneath the carpet or work out some other formula, it will not have any enduring effect over the main issue. The past has been a testimony to this phenomenon. We had Shimla agreement, Delhi agreement, 1975 accord etc. etc but the issue has not vanished. And the Umpire's role has to be impartial and meaningful particularly because the two Countries are nuclear armed and pose a direct threat to a quarter of the world population.

"From the very first day I was aware about four point formula of General Parvez Musharaf and that it was a deceit and a diplomatic ploy to damage our freedom struggle. However, Musharaf and those who supported his formula used to say that it is a beginning and a step towards its final resolution," Geelani, without naming those resistance leaders who had backed the former general's formula, said.

Geelani disclosed: Musharraf tried to convince me, however I refused to follow his dictate. "We adopted a categorical approach and denied to compromise with undesirable options. Pakistan is definitely our benefactor and has since 1947 provided diplomatic support to our right to self determination," he said, adding: I warn the authorities in Pakistan that we won't accept any agreement which is against the aspirations of Kashmir people.

  • Rahul Deb Prashanta Bhushan has finally spelt out the AAP agenda. He wants a refrendum in J&K to kick out the Indian army. Havent the Pakis been asking for a plebicite? Is it the AAP job to furthur the Paki agenda in J&K?Who will secure the convoys that pass through our rear areas?8 Soldiers were killed in Srinagar last year. Does that not concern Mr Bhushan?I hope he realises the TIMING of what he is saying. Next year the US is withdrawing from Af. Pak is expected to send in 100s of Talibanis and Jihadis into J&K. How very convenient to have the Indian army removed just before this infiltration begins! Have we any patriotism left?Does Mr Kejriwal go along with these ideas of breaking up India ?Or does Ford Foundation funding entail that they support Pro- Pak views and demoralise the Indian Army?It is about time that we got a clear answer from MR Kejriwal. They can not exploit our emotions against corruption to foster an anti- national agenda to break up India. Today it is Kashmir tomorrow it will be Manipur, Nagaland < Assam and the whole Red Corridor. Where does it end Mr Bhushan?

  • Rahul Deb @Nidhi -Kashmiri Hindus (Pandits) are in exile since early 1990 after Islamic religious fundamentalists in the valley of Kashmir took to armed subversion and terrorism and drove them out of their centuries old habitat. Today, Kashmir is on the brink of being separated from India. It is the beginning of a comprehensive plan to bring about the total disintegration of India - a fact not realized by most of the Indians. Hundreds of thousands of Kashmiri Pandits who were forced to leave their sacred land because of the war waged by Islamic terrorists must now live in despicable conditions in their own country and are on the verge of extinction as a race. Called "migrants" by the administration, the Kashmiri Pandits are in fact refugees in their own country due to total failure of the Indian State to provide security and safety to them when they were ruthlessly persecuted, threatened, tortured and murdered by the Islamic terrorists.Muslims group can do anything.

  • January 9 at 5:49am · Like

  • Rahul Deb What is your comment about article 370??? Is it not separitist article???Why so called "Secularist" support article 370???Is it not violation of human rights?What is Constitution? Why a nation needs a Constitution? What should a Constitution have ? Should it be just a booklet of few hundred pages with compilation of numerous Articles and Sections, even if they do not give any benefit to the people ? Why is it not mandatory that any Article or Section, which becomes hot cake of public discussion should be reviewed and if needed be abrogated or removed. These are few small yet fundamental questions that need appropriate and rational answers from the political circles that are taking extreme positions over the issue. One of the most authentic logic put while opposing Article 370 is that it bars the non subjects/ people from outside the state to buy immovable as well as movable property here, set any industry or manufacturing unit, while no other state bars any state subject of J&K to invest there, acquire land or set business establishment. It is true that every educated individual cannot be given government job but the government can work on alternate means to ensure that more and more job avenues are made available to the people. The alternate, therefore, is the private sector. Today private sector has achieved new heights in many states. But how the same private sector can grow here in J&K when there is obstacle of Article 370 in attracting the flow of investment from big business houses which are running mega projects and giving employment to thousands of educated youth according to their academic, professional, skilled and non skilled capabilities. Lack of job avenues to the educated unemployed youth of state is forcing them to move out to other states for finding suitable source of bread earning. It is said that if this silent migration of youth continues, it will convert the state into a land of old and aged people in next 15-20 years, which is indeed a very serious matter and need to be taken note of by the government. It is also said that unemployment in J& K has promoted militancy. A poor youth after completing education with limited resources, after sitting idle for long, gets easily lured by the people who push them into anti-national activities by giving few thousands of rupees. Moreover, it is time for entire state, people in all the three regions as a matter of their right to look afresh into pros and cons of this Article and assess things themselves instead of getting entrapped every time into the jargon of Kashmir politicians. Even otherwise, if a common man from the society, who is neither a political figure nor an intellectual or academician, is told that Jammu & Kashmir is an integral part of India like any other state but Article 370 provides for separate flag and separate Constitution, his reaction would be – why it was not abrogated during all these years after its incorporation for a temporary period?

  • Dinesh Reghunath R article 370 specifies that except for Defence, Foreign Affairs, Finance and Communications,(matters specified in the instrument of accession) the Indian Parliament needs the State Government's concurrence for applying all other laws. Thus the state's residents lived under a separate set of laws, including those related to citizenship, ownership of property, and fundamental rights, as compared to other Indians.

  • When India and Pakistan gained their independence on 15 and 14 August 1947, respectively; J&K chose to remain independent. Maharaja Hari Singh (the then ruler of J&K) signed a standstill agreement with Pakistan. India refused to sign any such agreement. However, on 6 October 1947, Pakistani muslim tribes, on account of hearing Maharaja's attrocities in Muslim dominated Poonch region, attacked Jammu and Kashmir. To save his state Maharaja chose to accede Jammu & Kashmir to India, so that India could help in defending her.

  • It was in the pursuance of those commitments that Article 370 was incorporated in the Constitution.

  • Rahul Deb Maharaja Hari Singh was suspicious of the anti-Hindu Nehru given his patronizing of the marxist Sheikh Abullah who was dreaming of maintaining Kashmir as his personal fiefdom. This was what preventing the Maharaja from acceding to India for he was sure that his future would be in peril once the cunning Sheikh Abdullah took control of Kashmir with Nehru's blessings. It was only after Patel's assurance that he was able to shed some his fear and anxiety with regard to Nehru. Patel's letter to the Maharaja on 3 July 1947 gives idea as to the apprehensions of Hari Singh. "I am sorry to find that there is considerable misapprehension in your mind about the Congress. Allow me to assure your Highness that the Congress is not only not your enemy, as you happen to believe, but there are in the Congress many strong supporters of your state… Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru belongs to Kashmir. He is proud of it, and rest assured he can never by your enemy… as a sincere friend and well-wisher of the state, I wish to assure you that the interest of Kashmir lies in joining the Indian Union and its Constituent Assembly without any delay."India's Marxist and secular historians have for the most part demonised the Rajas of pre- independent India. They are usually presented as eccentric, selfish profligates who had not interest in their subjects except to collect taxes. But the truth is somewhat different. Many of the Rajas were deeply concerned about the well-being of their subjects and did what they could in the circumstances to alleviate their hardships, introduced social reforms, and get a first generation of children educated. No Raja of pre-independent India can be said to have been as greedy and corrupt and disinterested in their subjects as the current political pretend rajas and ranis in Dilli today. When the Rajas surrendered their territories to a newly independent India, they should have been given a permanent seat in the Raja Sabha as recognition for the kingdoms they had surrendered to the new state. Instead they were pensioned-off and ignored by the new political elite, and in the 1970s were completely disenfranchised by Indira Gandhi who took away their titles and purses (except for the Prince of Arcot who still gets a title and pension from the Dilli Government). The Rajas played an very important role in traditional Hindu society. Their disenfranchisement is a great loss to Hindu culture and Hindu religion. A king or queen sitting in Rashtrapati Bhavan would have been a very prestigious and honourable addition to India's national identity.

  • Nidhi Joseph You are right...In opposition, it is very easy to say things like that...When BJP was in power, that time congress raised this issue and BJP did not accept it. Actually both of these parties are acting foul in parliament. BJP should have acted at the time of Kargil itself. They shud have shown pakistan their real place. One more thing I do not understand, whenever people raises questions to BJP, they divert their attention to Kashmir and terrorism. Correct me if i am wrong. Everyone knows that Kashmir is an integral part of India and and separatists gangs should not be supported. Kashmiri people should be convinced that Indian Army is for their support and safety. When someone other than BJP talks about kashmir, the BJP will say that they are supporters of Pakistan...how this pakistan came in between..no one talked about pakistan. We always talk about kashmir and its people...why to talk about pakistan..who the hell he is..this BJP people always bring pakistan in between and divert the main issue.

  • Back to the point, whatever modi says will be rationale and whatever other says will be irrational? When BJP itself runs on religious belief and is supported by RSS/VHP, how can it be rationale. To be rationale, it should be non-communal, non-religious, non-casteist...and everyone's education should be the same..By education, I mean some of the school teaches history and geography by being biased and some schools teaches it antropologically...Actually everyone should be taught the history as anthropologically...When and how Indian state came into existence. What was India before that? How britishers united the Indian province. What all areas were not under Britishers rule. Wat all areas were under britisher's rule like burma, ceylon, malaya, etc. etc. Why are they outside of India now after independence, why did not sardar patel acceded them ? How Indian national congress came into existence? Who are scheduled castes and scheduled tribes? Why they were given protection by the government when the kingdoms were converted to governments? Who all were taken under SC/STs and why BJP govt is against SC/ST reservation? Why they want to remove reservation from the institutes and not from the religious places where only few superiors have the right to perform Puja? Why they are so worried about just 22% of reservation? Did they not want that community should be represented equally at all levels? Why they have made rules to stop the conversion? Who are they to decide who will follow what? Is this democracy? Who all were responsible for partition, as it is not just a handy work of 2 to 4 guys. These all questions cannot be resolved.

Kashmir is an integral part of the world. It is an integral part of the struggles around the world, struggles of all the people of the world who are fighting for their socio-political rights, for dignity, for equality as nations among nations. Kashmir is integral to the future of the world that respects the fundamental right to exist and co-exist of nations big and small. Kashmir is integral to the coming post-imperial world where big states do not dominate small ones. Kashmir is integral to emancipation from imperialist thought which arrogates to itself the right to decide the fate of nations under its military domination. Kashmir is integral to the end of hatred and bigotry, of militarism and fascism. It is integral to the aspirations of billions who want to live their own lives well and not try to determine those of others. Kashmir is integral to the decision that to survive one must collectively struggle; to the decision that the decision has to be made by Kashmiris about Kashmir. Kashmir is integral to the dismantling of hypocrisy of political formations that exploit and blind human sentiments to dominate other humans. Kashmir is integral to the dissolution of India as an imperial entity, to the dissolution of its casteist empire, its frivolous politicians, its military-industrial complex, and its frenzied nationalism.

"Women have been the main players in Kurdistan Workers Party's development since then. Abdulla Ocalan theorized that if women would not be free, the nation will never be free. He said life, women and freedom cannot be separated. This became the main motto of Kurdish women in Turkey. The leader has reiterated on different occasions that "PKK's revolution is women's revolution."


Now, more than 2000 women fighters out of 7000 Kurdish PKK guerrillas on mountains are fighting against the Turkey's imperialism on Kurdistan.


One of the pillars of PKK's ideology is freedom of women. The feminist ideas of Ocalan have been completely brought into effect in the organization. The PKK ideology compulsory applies a minimum 40% women's quota in the whole skeleton of the party, and its affiliated parties and organizations.


Apart from that, it is a compulsory, and unanimously agreed upon by the members that a party or any other institutions should be presided in a joint leadership; a woman and a man. For example, the Peace and Democratic Party, the only Kurdish legal political party in Turkey is co-chaired by a woman and a man. I don't think that it is available in the whole world of political or ideological systems. Feminist movements have not brought this ideology into the scene yet."
