  • End of ‘unrealistic expectations’ in Kashmir | Dinalpi | Aug 19 2020

    The Kashmir Valley is once again at crossroads. Ever since the repeal of Article 370 and 35 (A), there is an uneasy calm in Kashmir, disturbed only by the occasional bursts of terrorist violence. These terrorist-related incidents have also seen a decline in the last one year.

    But most importantly, even after a year of the repeal of Article 370 and 35 (A), there has been no sight of the much-anticipated, “Sailaab”, or ‘mass civilian protests’ by Kashmiris. The deafening silence of the common man on the streets of Kashmir was initially attributed to the internet clampdown and also due to the arrests of the local political leaders. It was widely perceived that once the internet clampdown was lifted and the political prisoners released, Kashmir would “burn”.

    But even after lifting of internet ban and release of most of the political leaders, Kashmir continues to remain calm. This ‘studied silence’ of Kashmiri awaam is ironically giving a loud and clear message to the entire world and that is, they “do not want to be led down the garden path anymore”.
    See how he changed his tune

    Shah Faesal, the first IAS topper from Kashmir Valley, was once the beacon of hope for many Kashmiri youths.

    However, he later transformed himself into a ‘manufactured symbol’ of Kashmiri frustration.

    He resigned from the IAS in protest and had plunged himself into political activities. But after a year post the repeal of Article 370 and 35(A), he now acknowledges that the ground realities are different. In an interview to The Indian Express a few days back, Shah Faesal said, “In the last one year due to some of my problematic utterances, a perception was built that I am an anti-national… due to some of my statements, I let down a lot of people who had immense goodwill for me. I want to undo that”. He further said that, “I did not want to lead Kashmiris down the garden path and raise unrealistic expectations”.
    That's what we had to deal with for the last couple of decades. Manufactured frustration. Self inflicted due to bad policy

    Faesal said detention proved to be an “immense learning phase”. “I realised that at the end of the day you are all alone. It’s your family that suffers the most while ironically those for whom you seem to be standing up are drawing a sadistic pleasure out of your misery. Detention gave me the clarity of mind that I belong somewhere else. That I can’t destroy my life for those who won’t even cry for me,” he said.
    Reality!

        Slight correction. Many Kashmiri youths study in Delhi, Bangalore, other metros in India.

            If the state has to defend religion to the extent it does in Pakistan then these people must not be very religious to begin with ; )

            They just want that perception to be reinforced because the reality is a great deal worse.

                  • The way you get PO J&K back is the people there want to join India.

                    The unrest will increase as they see the lives of people on the Indian side improve.

                    As they see China and a colluding Pakistan makes life harder for them.

                    This will take time but it will be unstoppable.

                        • pretty clear what agenda this UN org is pushing. Does any one take them seriously these days ?

                          Official Spokesperson's response to media queries on press release by Special Rapporteur on minority issues and the Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief | MEA | Feb 18 2021


                          February 18, 2021

                          In response to media queries on press release by Special Rapporteur on minority issues and the Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief, the Official Spokesperson Shri Anurag Srivastava said:

                          "We have seen the Press Release on J&K issued today by Special Rapporteur on minority issues and the Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief.

                          It is deplorable that the SRs, after sharing their questionnaire on 10 February, did not even wait for our response. Instead, they chose to release their inaccurate assumptions to the media. The Press Release has also been deliberately timed to coincide with the visit of a group of Ambassadors to Jammu and Kashmir.

                          The Press Release disregards the fact that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral and inalienable part of India and the decision of 05 August 2019 regarding the change in the status of the State of Jammu and Kashmir into a Union Territory of India was taken by the Parliament of India.

                          The Press Release fails to take into account the steps aimed at ending decades of discrimination, enshrining democracy at the grassroot level through successful conduct of local elections for the District Development Councils, and ensuring good governance through back to village program. The Press Release has ignored the positive impact of extending Laws applicable to the rest of India to Jammu and Kashmir, enabling the people of Jammu and Kashmir to enjoy the same rights as available to people in other parts of India.

                          As for the apprehensions of demographic change, the fact that an overwhelming majority of domicile certificates issued in J&K are to the erstwhile Permanent Resident Certificate (PRC) holders shows that these fears are baseless and unfounded.

                          This press release calls into question the larger principles of objectivity and neutrality that the SRs are mandated by the Human Rights Council to adhere to.

                          We expect the Special Rapporteurs to develop a better understanding of the issues under their consideration before jumping to hasty conclusions and issuing press statements.”
