never was and will never be part of India - Intifada
Indian de-mocracy written in blood and betrayal: Indian Express
An Independent KASHMIR the only viable solution
China now claims whole of Kashmir because it says China has more military power than India. After August 05, 2019 Indian unilateral action in Kashmir, India removed the only link article 370 of Indian constitution that allowed it to hoodwink the international community saying Kashmir had acceded to India. The link removed makes India an occupier holding Kashmir on the basis of military strength. Now if China or Pakistan can prove to the world that they are more powerful than India; that military power India can't match, gives them right to forcibly throw India out and occupy Kashmir. As they say "might is right" the principle adopted in various regions of the world.
Nehru Pandit on July 6, 1951 had this to say about Kashmir.
"People seem to forget that Kashmir is not a commodity for sale or to be bartered. It has an individual existence and its people must be the final arbiters of their future" and further stated, "If we did anything of the kind our government would not last many days and there would be no peace....it would lead to war with Pakistan because of public opinion here and of war-like elements (refereing to RSS/BJP nexus) coming in control of our policy."
JUNE 16, 1946
Pandit Nehru was arrested by Maharaja Hari Singh's forces at Kohala, Kashmir now controlled by Pakistan. After an intervention by Her Majesty's government in Delhi, Nehru was released and pushed back to India leaving an indelible mark on Nehru's approach towards political handling of Kashmir. Nehru never expected a Hindu Maharaja to treat him like an enemy and entertaining a huge grudge, the incident forced the future prime minster of India to evolve a different strategy and marginalize the ruler of independent Kashmir.
Indian action restores Kashmir´s independence
Simla Accord buried; Kashmir a TRILATERAL ISSUE now
Nothing changed for Kashmir on August 5, 2019 except a piece of paper written by India´s Amit Shah and signed by the rubber stamp President of Government of India. Occupation was in place like for the last 73 years with a damage done by Indian terrorists in uniform killing over 150,000 young and old in cold blood; hundreds of women raped, many hundreds disappeared in Indian torture chambers and properties worth billions razed to the ground.
Article 370 or 35A a property of Indian constitution extended to Kashmir State unilaterally after August 9,1953 when trump cards Sheikh Abdullah and Maharaja Hari Singh were taken for a ride and dumped soon after military occupation was complete. Sheikh Abdullah was put behind bars on trumped up charges for eleven years and Maharaja Hari Singh exiled to Bombay to die in oblivion. In a nutshell, India is now in direct military occupation and has no option but to quit peacefully and leave Kashmir alone.
India needs to remember that Her Majesty´s Government of British-India left peacefully offering India an infrastructure unmatched on a platter. India has nothing to show except an individual action of General Reginald Dyer in Jallianwala Bagh compared to genocides commited by Indian army in Kashmir and elsewhere.
AGLI BAAR TRUMP SARKAR
PRESIDENT JOSEPH ROBINETTE BIDEN Jr
Indian prime minister Modi's direct intervention in American politics could have turned disasterous for Joe Biden's Democratic Party. Over 4 million Indian American votes could have turned the tables over and snatched the opportunity for Biden-Harris to rule the country for next four years.
To keep up with the Democratic Party's tradition, President Biden has been engaged with Pakistan related issues for many years. In 2008, Pakistan honoured Joe Biden with the highest civilian honour Hilal-e-Pakistan. In Indian occupied Kashmir now Biden-Harris team firmly in office instilled a hope of a bright future, restoration of their political rights as per the United Nations Resolutions and expect an immediate stop to Indian human right violations and persecution. People in Kashmir believe that Joe Biden has gone through very difficult times in his personal life;so he undersands the pain and agony of an average Kashmiri faced on daily basis.
VICE-PRESIDENT KAMALA HARRIS
In October 2019, during an event in Texas, Harris said the U.S. would intervene in the Kashmir conflict "if the condition demands" and assured Kashmiris "that they are not alone." Vice-President Kamala Harris has been a sharp critic of India's Kashmir policy and a majority of Indians are not thrilled because of America's backing on the Kashmir issue.
Notably, last year, Senator Harris previousely on two occasions was asked about her stance on the Kashmir issue, and unsurprisingly she backed the demand for international intervention and stated 'we have to remind Kashmiris that they are not alone in the world'. We are keeping track of the situation and we feel there is a need to intervene if the situation demands.'
THE STATE OF KASHMIR
The STATE OF KASHMIR on October 25, 1947 existed as an independent sovereign nation. India occupied it through manipulations and intrigues involving Maharaja Patiala initially and then slowly roping in Maharaja Hari Singh of Kashmir and Sheikh Abdullah, a popular leader of Kashmir. Both were hoodwinked with false promises and dream of secular India that proved to be a mirage. Hari Singh wanted Kashmir to remain independent. The growing Indian clandestine political activity sent alarm bells to the newly created independent nation of Pakistan. Very little could be done by Pakistan´s shocked Governor-General M A Jinnah whose army Chief General Douglas Gracy preferred to act on the orders received from Governor General of India Lord Mountbatten.
Maharaja Hari Singh hated Nehru´s guts as he understood his gameplan. Nehru on his first visit to Kashmir was stopped by Maharaja at Kohala and put under detention for several hours before sending him to back to India. Nehru invited naive Sheikh to Delhi and persuaded him to rise against Maharaja, a despot, and ask him to Quit Kashmir. Sheikh Abdullah fell into a trap and started the QUIT KASHMIR movement and paved the way for Nehru to play his decisive role in the ongoing Kashmir politics. Once Maharaja was out of the way, it became very easy for Nehru to get rid of Abdullah in a little over five years.
In an act of desperation, a Kashmiri Major Khurshid Anwar and Major Akbar under pseudonym General Tariq frustrated at Pakistan army´s refusal to intervene to counter Indian army´s landing of troops at Srinagar airport, approached tribal warriors of NWFP to seek their help to stop the military advance of Indian army. The tribals were not properly trained in guerrela warfare and were devoid of any military strategy. Meanwhile, India managed to use the services of one Kashmiri traitor Maqbool Sherwani who befriended tribal warriors and guided them through the wrong routes to reach Srinagar and wasted their valuable time allowing Indian army to consolidate their advanced positions. Indian army, thus, pushed its forces to reach Uri. By this time Pakistan realised what was happening and ignored General Gracy and moved to stop further Indian advance at Uri which later came to be known as the CEASEFIRE LINE.
MODI´S INDIA CALLS IT NEHRU´S BLUNDERS
An historical speech made by Jawaharlal Nehru, an offer and a solemn pledge that India is coming in to help having no intention of staying back and will leave instead, after the invasion of tribal warriors from NWFP is dealt with. man tu shudam, tu man shudi did not seem to work for Sheikh as perhaps Nehru did not understand the language and chose to ignore it. Nehru´s cleverness paid huge dividends by associating himself with upcoming secular leader of Kashmiris than with Maharaja Hari Singh whose days ,he thought were numbered and who had opposed Nehru right from the start, advocating an independent Kashmir Continue to read...
Kashmiris betrayed by India and mushroom political non-entities using Kashmir for their petty economic interests and down the line we have Abdullahs, Bakshis, Sadiqs, Mir Qasims, Abdullahs´ progeny and this new breed of Mufti dynasty. The fact remains that Kashmiris have suffered enough and the time is not far when the blood of more than one hundred thousand people will result in a fulfilled dream of breathing fresh air in the atmosphere of an independent Kashmir.The people of Kashmir are grappling with the notion to understand their LION to remain faithful to Pandit Nehru even after being put behind bars and later banished from the State for more than two decades.

Indian prime minister Modi derives political strength from right-wing political forces whose agenda is the promotion of Hindu India according second class citizenship rights to all minorities. The religious zealots providing political support to Modi government costs India seventy years secular image that Pandit Nehru and his successors tried to build. The first prime minister Pandit Nehru is now branded a traitor for bringing misery for the people of India.
Maharaja Hari Singh succeeded his uncle Maharaja Pratap Singh, and ascended the throne on October 14, 1925. He manoeuvred to maintain his independence by playing India and Pakistan by signing stand still agreements with both the countries. Firmly in control after occupation, using Hari Singh to the hilt internationally, India terminated and dispensed with Hari Singh's rule in 1951, externed him to Bombay for rest of his life to die their on April 26, 1961.
Thus India put all its eggs in one basket; exiled Maharaja to rot in Bombay and expended Abdullah in different jails of India to die a political death. The purport accession based by India on the loyalties extended by Maharaja and Abdullah smashed to smithereens exposed India's blatant lies. India, due to frustration, is now toying with the idea of creating regionalism, communalism and division among people, hoping to complicate the issue further.

PANDIT NEHRU July 6, 1951
RENOWNED HISTORIAN ALASTAIR LAMB
When, after the transfer of power, the Maharaja of Kashmir refrained from accession to either Dominion, his progress towards a viable independence was closely watched (and possibly encouraged) by these same Sikh rulers. When he began to experience increasing difficulty in resisting the Azad Kashmir movement among his subjects, the Maharaja of Patiala lent him units of his own State Army. The evidence is strong that these Patiala troops entered the State of Kashmir some days before the combined Azad Kashmiri-Pathan operation along the Jhelum Valley of 21-22 October 1947 which marks the formal beginning of the great Kashmir crises.
[Incomplete Partition p.91]
In the Vale of Kashmir the Indian Army reinforced the existing security police, notably the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), in imposing an increasingly severe regime of curfews and the usual measures of house searches, arbitrary arrests and retaliatory punishment of civil population, accompanied by rapes and looting common in such situations, as well as, the punitive destruction of houses, indeed of entire neighbourhoods.....an Indian military occupation of a conquered land.

NEHRU PROPOSES REFERENDUM
ON KASHMIR UNDER U.S. AUSPICES
THE INDEPENDENT ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA
Monday November 3, 1947
NEW DELHI: The United Nations was projected into the situation in strife-torn Kashmir today by an Indian government leader´s suggestion that it supervise a plebescite to determine the status of that princely state. The suggestion came from Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, prime minister of the new dominion of India, to which Kashmir´s Hindu maharaja decided to join his predominantly Moslem state a week ago in order to obtain help against Pathan raiders coming from Pakistan´s northwest frontier province.
Declaring that India had no intention of maintaining troops in Kashmir once the "danger of invasion is passed" Nehru said:"We have declared that the fate of Kashmir is ultimately to be decided by the people. That pledge we have given, and the maharaja has supported it not only to the people of Kashmir but to the world. We will not and cannot back out of it."
"We are prepared when peace and law and order have been established to have a referendum held under international auspices like the United Nations. We want it to be a fair and just reference to the people and we shall accept the verdict."
Nehru termed the invasion of Kashmir by the Pathan raiders a "violation of international law and an unfriendly act to a neighbor country." He said they were "fully armed, well trained and have competent leadership." and added:
"All these men have come across from Pakistan territory. We have a right to ask the Pakistan governmrnt how and why these people could come across the frontier province or West Punjab (in Pakistan) and how they had been armed so effectively.""Is the Pakistan government too weak to prevent armies from marching across its territory to invade another country, or is it willing this should happen?"Reports of the military situation in Kashmir, where Indian troops are fighting beside the Kashmir forces, remained conflicting.The Pakistan radio said yesterday that Moslem petrols had penetrated the streets of the provincial capital of Srinagar, but this was denied by the Indian government. The latter acknowledged, however, that the invaders had approached to within eight miles of the Srinagar airport, chief base of the Indian army´s defence operations.
A despatch from Srinagar quoted Max Desfor, Associated Press photographer, as saying he had seen more than 20 villages in flames while flying over a section of the Kashmir valley extending to within about 20 miles of the capital. Desfor said, however, that he saw no evidence of any Pathan columns closing in on Srinagar and that there were no signs of any clearly defined battle front.
THE STARK REALITY
Kashmir, as we know, is going through difficult times, and the going seems tough as speaking out the truth becomes real hard and at times impossible. In a real democracy, freedom of press and right to information professed allows running of normal day to day affairs smoothly to a reasonable extent. On the contrary, the unpleasant issues like human right violations, indiscriminate killings, house searches backed by draconian laws, adds humiliation and resultant psychological problems for the affected populace. For a fake democracy it can become an embarrassment, especially under the watchful eyes of the international community.
The general public wholly depends on the information allowed for consumption and policy directions formulated to be followed by the media circles in the broader ´national´ interest. People of India, unfortunately, are fed with information far from truth and it is expected that an established vibrant democracy gives people the right to know everything about anything that happens on local or international level. The problem of Kashmir projected and given to understand to people of India as gosple truth is based mainly on following baseless arguments charging the people up emotionally to complicate a simple issue of persecuted people´s basic fundamental right.
PIC OF THE DAY
GUNFIGHT BREAKS OUT
in Indian-controlled Kashmir: Xinhua
One morning of Dec-Jan 1990, notorious Indian CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) knock at the door of Abdul Ahad Bhat of Batmaloo, Srinagar and demand the TV set to watch their favourite program Ramayana. The lady of the house opens the door to find uniformed armed infantry men staring at her with the demand and the next minute she collapses and is rushed by her relations to the hospital to be declared dead. In Kashmir incredible India does such miracles on daily basis.
THE KILLING FIELDS OF INDIAN ARMY
Over one million trigger happy armed men in uniform, who do not understand the language, culture, religion, ethos and behaviour, pounce on local population with vengeance and a mindset to eliminate the populace to occupy this rich paradise belonging to the poor inhabitants. It is amazing to find the "GOOD PEOPLE" of the world turning a blind eye to these atrocities committed with impunity. UN can see what happens in Syria, Lybia or Iran but when it comes to Kashmir they look the other way and one wonders why?
More than one hundred thousand men, women and children killed in the last twenty seven years. An independent Kashmir can be a bridge and instrumental between two hostile nuclear nations. Censorship imposed in "Indian democracy" conveniently and with suitability worsens the situations. Indian army makes sure to confine populace behind closed doors as millions on the roads create an embarrassing situation and international community is inclined to ask few questions.

"The Kashmir Valley has been fabled down the ages for its natural beauty. It has best been described as an emerald set in pearls, with the emerald representing the lush, fertile Kashmir Valley and pearls for the lofty snow-clad Himalayan peaks that encircle it. Kashmir´s enormous habitat diversity supports an equally rich and unique biodiversity, making Kashmir a biological paradise. Unfortunately it's environment is being seriously degraded by the combined onslaught of violence, pollution, global warming and habitat destruction due to human encroachment, unplanned tourism and deforestation".

GANDHI & COW WORSHIP
Gandhi´s letter to Christian evangelist Milton Newberry Frantz in 1926 records the content of the letter saying "Jesus was one of the great teachers of mankind". The letter is considered by Nathan Raab,the president of Raab collection as an embodiment of "Gandhi´s vision for world of religions at peace".
Gandhi wrote, "Dear Friend, I have your letter. I am afraid it is not possible for me to subscribe to the creed you have sent me. The subscriber is made to believe that the highest manifestation of the unseen reality was Jesus Christ. In spite of all my efforts, I have not been able to feel the truth of that statement. I have not been able to move beyond the belief that Jesus was one of the great teachers of mankind. Do you not think that religious unity is to be had not by a mechanical subscription to a common creed but by all respecting the creed of each? In my opinion, difference in creed there must be so long as there are different brains. But how does it matter if all these are hung upon the common thread of love and mutual esteem?" Gandhi held on to those ideals and cow worshipping till his last day before re-incarnation.

Occupational uniformed strong men, heavily armed, contribute to political unrest and Kashmir´s ecological balance that is severely disturbed due to unabated environmental destruction over a period of six decades.

JULY 01, 2017
A senior White House official said that US ties with India were not at the expense of its relations with Pakistan."I want to make a point here that US relationships with India and Pakistan really stand on their own merits and terms," the official said at a special briefing a day before Monday´s White House meeting between the Indian prime minister and the US president. "While we hope to deepen the relationship with India, we are also interested in continuing our cooperation with Pakistan".
Our policy on Kashmir has not changed, said a State Department spokesperson when asked if the designation indicated a change in the US policy on Kashmir, which Washington sees as a disputed territory. American statement describes occupied territory as Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir and Washington sees Kashmir as a dispute that needed to be resolved peacefully.
WHY KASHMIR IS ALIGHT?
Kashmir, culturally a symbol of tolerance and forbearance is faced with a new culture of violence, intolerance and moral degradation. It is argued in certain quarters that Kashmiriat must be recognised and accepted as basis for understanding last seventy years political uneasiness and turbulence and it will not be difficult to assess and analyse to find why Kashmir is alight?
Pakistan´s "Sheh rug" (jugular vein) or India´s "atoot ang" (integral part) may satisfy remote controlled sections of the society driven by nostalgia but in the long run it will always result in details of gore, ingrained animosity, flippant rhetoric and waste of resources desperately needed for uplifting the downtrodden. A cricket match becomes a question of life and death involving the Aussie-British version of Ashes hostility in the worse form.
In order to find a lasting political solution to avoid future wars between India and Pakistan, a number of international dignitaries considered it imperative to make a serious effort to resolve the issue. In this connection, initially, Australian diplomat Sir Owen Dixon visited Kashmir on July 30, 1950 and gave several proposals, if allowed to be implemented could have saved thousands of lives those perished in brutal subjugation and wars fought between India and Pakistan. Sir Owen Dixon´s popularly known as DIXON PLAN discussed at length in many forums believed to be a practical solution, a historical reality lies in cold storage.
Kashmir history replete with stories of oppression and inhuman treatment on a people belonging to this most beautiful place blessed with abundant natural resources faced perpetual wars from Khokh, Tungan and Mongols who came through Karakoram mountainous range to deprive people of their belongings, live stock and women. This was followed by Mughals who fought wars and adopted a different strategy of deceit by inviting King Yousuf Shah Chak for negotiations with resultant imprisonment and death.
Kashmir´s unending vows were to take new dimensions; as soon after the transfer of power to India by British in August 1947, the interim Prime Minister of Kashmir Sheikh Abdullah´s land to tiller legislation unnerved 4% Kashmiri Pandits who sensed white collar bureaucratic power base coming under threat and also the fear of losing feudal supremacy that gained gradual momentum. Pandit Nehru assured and won Sheikh Abdullah´s trust by promising him an independent Kashmir in private and in public, a stand Pandit Nehru backtracked once Indian army established firm military control on Kashmir.

FAMOUS POET OF THE RECENT PAST
ABDUL AHAD ZARGAR
An illustrious Kashmiri poet famous for his fiery verses Abdul Ahad Zargar born in the year 1882, died in 1973. Follower of the Qadri order his Fakiri poem widely known is probably one of the most popular poems sung by various folk singers of the valley.
Abdul Ahad Zargar's verses relate to spirituality, metaphysical forces and Sufism. Many noted singers of the valley sung Zargar's classics elevating listners to spiritual heights. Kashmiri language a heterogeneous combination of several languages including Arabic, Persian, Russian and Sanskrit are the pearls used by the poet to express himself in a perspective representing culture and ethos. Some of his remarkable lines sung give an idea of his spiritual commitment to his ownself and all others who derive pleasure and stand benefitted spiritually.

BULLETS, BATONS & PELLETS
Kashmir simmers, put alight by
people having no right to occupy
Military Curfews do not deter masses from coming out on the roads to protest Indian rule and continue the fight with stones and bricks to convey the message that India must leave Kashmir. Indian overtures towards Soviet Union were tactfully planned mainly to use USSR VETOs to frustrate rest of the world denying to hold the promised plebiscite in Kashmir. India´s truculent behaviour paid dividends leaving Kashmir simmering on the burner
Human Right violations, atrocities and ruthless behaviour demonstrated by Indian fascist establishemnt backed by army are unprecedented and are never heard of in the past. Indian arrogance makes them believe that genocides committed in Kashmir can easily be brushed under the carpet. India also believes that the military might it displays will deter Kashmiris from raising their voice and will ultimately succumb to the pressure. Kashmir fought India for the last seventy three years and will continue the fight till the cherished goal of independence from India is achieved.
INDIAN TERROR IN SOUTH-EAST ASIA

India planned for decades investing billions of US Dollars to destablize Pakistan. The main target was to focus on Pakistan´s business hub Karachi and rich in minerals, silver and gold Baluchistan Province. India needed Baluchistan to gain access to Afghanistan, Central Asia and Europe. Pakistan´ army and its intelligence agencies dashed all Indian hopes and brought the country´s turmoil under control. Pakistan is still struggling to wipe out the political mafia who were embedded with deep roots in the so called democratic set -up to create mayhem with a special target to weaken army and economic back-bone of Pakistan. The enemies planned and so did Allah.
