Kashmir: Festering Under Indian Ferocity

Kashmir: Festering Under Indian Ferocity

By Dr Maqsood Jafri

After the revocation of articles 370 and 35/A from Indian constitution, the Kashmiris are facing terrible times. Extra judicial killings, gang raping and unprecedented Indian aggression have crossed call the limits of decency and humanity.

The Kashmiris have no part to play in local administration and affairs. Like an octopus, the Indian army have wrapped and griped them. The former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, who happens to be the grand son of Sheikh Abdullah and is well known pro- India like his predecessors also outcried against India and in an interview said:

”What about the representative character of the government?”

He severely criticized the Indian government asserting on the deplorable situation in Kashmir. He said:

“Please look at the make-up of our administration today? Our LG is non-Muslim; Chief Secretary is non- Muslim; DGP is non-Muslim. Both our divisional commissioners and both IGs are non-Muslim.”

It is the acknowledgement and admittance of the faults and follies committed by his predecessors in the matters of Kashmir. It seems a penitence and repentance on the part of theses political imposters. Now, they have realized their mistake of siding with India.

Eminent Indian author and columnist A. G. Noorani in a recently published column under the title ”Kashmir’s Future”, writes:

“The situation in Kashmir is getting worse. On October 27, 2020, India passed the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Third Order, 2020 to enable people to buy land in Kashmir. On the same day, it enacted the J& K Development Act empowering the government to declare any local areas as a “strategic area” on the written request of the Indian army”.

On October 24, 2020 Sajjad Lone was elected official spokesperson of People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration. Dr. Farooq Abdullah was elected President and Ms. Mehbooba Mufti as Vice President. Both had remained Chief Minister and were staunch Indian agents and stooges.

Sajjad Lone, in a press statement, announced that the PAGD has decided to prepare a “Research-based white paper” for creating awareness of the fall out of the derogation of Article 370. Sajjad Lone further asserted that every misunderstanding and lie of India will be countered with this document. He said:

“We will present statistics to bust the false stories of how Jammu and Kashmir was in the dark ages and corruption before August 5, 2019 was rampant, as falsely accused by India.”

Great British Philosopher Bertrand Russell some decades ago, had accused India as an aggressor and had voiced in the favour of subdued Kashmiris. Now, we see great American living philosopher Noam Chomsky has recently given the whole humanity  some eye-opening advices in connection with imminent threats.

One of them is the fascist policies of Narendra Modi towards Muslims in India and how his government has been destroying what once used to be a secular society. It goes with out saying that in India and Kashmir, numberless mosques have been desecrated and demolished by Indians under the nose of their governments. Modi is involved in such heinous acts. The demolition of Babri Mosque and the construction of Ram Temple instead is a proof of Hindutva.

Islam ordains protection and respect of all religious sites. It is very unfortunate that in Karak, Balochistan, a few hard liners demolished a temple on the instigation of a local cleric. India highlighted this incident worldwide blaming Pakistan as a terrorist state that undermines the rights of the minorities. It is absolutely a demonic claim and charge by India.

India has reportedly conveyed “serious concerns“ to the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi at “repeated instances of similar nature against members of the minority community” after the Karak incident. It is the biggest lie of this century. Pakistan is very vigilant and mindful on the minority rights issue.

The Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Mahmood Khan announced reconstruction of the vandalized Hindu temple in Karak and vowed to protect worship places of minorities in all cases. The people involved in this incident have been arrested. Pakistan Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri categorically rejected completely unwarranted assertions by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs in connection with the Hindu temple in Karak.

In a statement, he said that this is not the first time the Indian government has tried to feign concern for minority rights elsewhere while being the most egregious and persistent violator of human rights in India and Kashmir. There is not a shred of doubt in it that the RSS- BJP regime’s record is replete with instances of gross and systemic violations of the rights of the minorities, in particular, the Muslims of India and Kashmir.

It is pertinent to mention that as a perennial purveyor of state-sponsored discrimination against its minorities, India is in no position to pontificate on the issue of minority rights elsewhere.  Besides, human rights violations, India is constantly and persistently violating international law and is attacking on the civilians across the border. So many civilians have been targeted so far.

On January 2, 2021, once again Indian spying quadcopter was shot down by Pakistan army. According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Pakistan Army troops shot down the Indian spying quadcopter on Saturday in Chakothi sector along the LoC. Similarly, on January 1, 2021, another Indian quadcopter was also shot down by Pakistan Army in Nausheri Sector along the LoC. Earlier, in the year 2020, Pakistan army shot down 16 Indian quadcopter for violating Pakistan’s airspace. If such an irresponsible and insensible country talks about peace and human rights, then who is going to be swooned?   

The most tragic mindset of Modi’s regime is unparalleled violations of human rights in Kashmir. Even the chaste ladies are molested and gang raped. The lady freedom fighters are in prisons. To unveil the gruesome face of Indian hypocrisy and so called the largest democracy in South Asia, Pakistan has stepped up its efforts to save Aasiya Andrabi, the detained Kashmiri human rights defender facing a controversial trial in Indian jail, from the possibility of summary execution, with a call on two senior UN officials on Friday to push New Delhi to drop all “trumped up” charges against her.

Ms Aasiya Andrabi, the founding leader of Kashmiri organization “Dukhtaran-I-Millat, has been in Indian custody since 2016, and is currently lodged in the coronavirus infested New Delhi’s Tihar Jail. It is the highest travesty of time that India has incarcerated many Kashmiri leaders in Tahir Jail, hanged them there and buried them in this notorious jail.

Shame on India. The so called champion of democracy, secularism and human rights is shameless and constantly hoodwinks the world by its diplomatic treacherous policies. Pakistan has been on back benches on diplomatic front and in the past 72 years have not dedicatedly and actively presented Kashmir case of diplomatic fora. It is the dire need of the time to re-orientate and reconstruct our Kashmiri Policy.
