Free Kashmir?

"The vast majority of Kashmiris want independence, or at least hugely increased autonomy, not to mention a withdrawal of troops." Here, at Comment is Free.

Kashmir will be free the same day Scotland becomes free. You mind your own affairs and we will look after ours. India is a secular democratic republic and not a namby pamby banana republic.Long ago when the first Europeans were drawing cave paintings we were already believing in sarva dharma samabhava which means all religions lead to the same God.When the Jews were expelled from the middle east we welcomed them, when the zoarastrians were thrown out we made them our own, when the Muslims invaded India we accepted them and when the Christian Missionaries came to 'civilize' us we embraced them with all our heart.But sadly our docile nature has been our greatest weakness.Kashmir is the heart of ancient Hindu civilization and some of our most holy shrines are there.We have already lost a quarter of our country to the camel drivers and we will never ever yield a inch more.We are suffering because of two Islamic theocracies on our borders and will never ever accept a third.Jai Hind.

i congratulate u for ur lovely blog on kashmir. It dissapoints me to see the comment posted by skamath which shows how democratic india truly is. He considers us kashmiris to be camel drivers which is testament to the racist savegery India has shown kashmiris since 1947. India is indeed a secular democratic republic which chose to slaughter over a 100,000 people who were seeking the democratic right of self determination which had been guaranteed to us by the UN in the form of a plebicite. Thousands were whisked away in the night by indian soldiers never to return, women raped and molested by indian goons. Skamath has ur mother ever been raped. Do u know how that feels? But my friend skamath will choose to ignore that and go into a nazi fervor saying jai hind firmly believeing that crude power and force can tame a population but be warned in it shall be India's ultimate demise

I would like to start by congratulating the author on his stupendous article on the valley. i wud like to add a few words of my own. The so called islamic radicalization of the valley is a well crafted and cleverly designed Indian media campaign that has been on since the past 2 decades. If India is a democracy as it claims to be why is it so afraid to give the kashmiris the right to self determination. Why do they silence the Kashmiris with their state sponsored terrorism. Kasmiris were and are a peace loving people. They welcome people of any race or religion to their country in keeping with the traditions of their ancestors. Unfortunately the Indian guests chose to steal our lands and become the masters. Now India has killed and humiliated the kashmiris. What more do they want? Why dont they nuke kashmir, kill all the people there and then take over. At least this nightmare will end

kahmir will be free when there will be true leaders on the front not those who just say only that they want freedom but are just earning a hard cash.i feel we will be always suffering becoz people of kashmir are double sided persons.they also want freedom but on other side they do cast a vote.
