Autonomy for Kashmir?

It has been quite a while since I have updated this space with politics.Its time to analyze Kashmir.For the past 2 months or so,there has been lots of talk going on about Kashmir.More than 100 people were killed.The situation now seems to be bit better(only a bit),but still the panic remains.It all started off when a young boy was killed by the police when trying to control an angry mob.But is it not foolish to believe that only because of this incident there has been so much of chaos in Kashmir?Don't you think something else is behind all these nonsense?

Many intellectuals claim that the stone pelting young boys are none other than our own citizens and its all because their basic needs are not fulfilled.But the point is the separatist groups are making use of this opportunity and they brainwash these youngsters to indulge in all sorts of anti social activities.So what's the action taken by the honorable CM of Kashmir,Mr.Omar Abdullah? He is announcing that he is ready for talks with all the groups. His latest statement is as follows:

"J&K’s accession to India is under an agreement and it is not the merger.”

And he is demanding talks with Pakistan.The honorable home minister Mr.P Chidambaram too claims that J&K has entered into accession under unique circumstances.Its a known fact that Pakistan is behind this unrest in Kashmir.The thing is,the whole Kashmir was burning.Daily so many people are being killed.But the PM of India,didn't even utter a single word about this issue.And the heir of the congress party Rahul Gandhi,who was busy in developing the party,most probably the next PM candidate of the congress party,he too didn't give much importance to this issue.After the opposition parties started pressurizing the govts., finally the PM stepped in.He said special privileges will be given to Kashmir.Finally the PM says he will consider giving autonomy for Kashmir.

The prince,Mr.Rahul Gandhi too finally broke his silence on the issue.He says Omar needs more time to tackle this issue.My question is how much time does he need?It is this congress which has split the nation into two(Pakistan) and still we are paying price for it.. 


I have a question to the central government.It is this Indian govt., which supplied arms to SriLankan army.The sinhalese army was like a bunch of scout boys.They couldn't defeat the LTTE.But the Lankan army was given adequate training.Lakhs and lakhs of innoncent Tamil civilians were killed by sinhalese army.Intellectuals argued that death of civilians is common in wars. When questioned,why they are against giving a separate state,Tamil EEZHAM(தமிழ் ஈழம்),the intellectuals and the central govt gave a reply that, separating Tamils from Lanka will de-stabilize the integrity of the nation(Srilanka). So they didn't support Eezham.Mr.Pranab Mukherjee,gave a firm reply that "terrorism of any form cannot be tolerated".So,they did all possible help to the sinhalese army to destroy the Tamils sorry LTTE and to save the integrity of Srilanka.

Can't this logic be applied to the case of Kashmir?Infact,citing Kashmir only an autonomous state for the Lankan Tamils has been opposed by the central government. In Srilanka,2 different races exists.The Sinhalese and Tamils. There the rights of Tamils has been suppressed for quite a long time and the sinhala people treat the Tamils as their slaves.Its enough if a Sinhala boy scores 35% in exams to get a pass,whereas a Tamil student has to score more marks(around 60% I guess,not sure of the number). This is just an example.This is how Tamils are treated in Lanka.The Tamils are exploited.But still the govt speaks about the integrity of Srilanka.So,in my opinion nothing wrong in giving an autonomous state to the Lankan Tamils.But is the condition same in Kashmir too?

As per the Indian constitution,any Indian citizen has the right to vote,right to contest in elections etc. and  Kashmiris are no exception.In Jammu Hindus constitute the majority population and in Kashmir it is the Muslims. So there is no point in giving an autonomy to Kashmir.Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel,the iron man of India,with a great hard-work, integrated  all the states,but it seems the current govt will easily destabilize the nation by giving autonomous status for all the states .

What needs to be done?

The situation came to a temporary halt.But Omar Abdullah,gave permission to Syed Ali Geelani,chairman of 'hardline' Hurriyat Conference(HC),to hold a rally,due to which again the stone pelting started and the situation became worse.After this incident, Omar cried foul.He expressed his disappointment towards Geelani and said its a betrayal of trust.

This incident itself proves how dumb he is.Article 356 of the Indian constitution has to be enforced in Kashmir and Omar's government has to be dismissed.Kashmir has to be declared as tensed state(பதற்றம் நிறைந்த மாநிலம் ) and the army has to be given full power until the situation comes under control.Then fresh elections has to be conducted and a new govt has to be formed.

But these things are most unlikely to happen and it seems the congress government will successfully split the nation into many parts again.

@Ragav- Thanks for ur valuable comments :-) .. Ya it would have been better had India not interfered in Lanka's internal issues.. But now India should interfere and should pressurize Lanka to treat Tamils properly.. Will this govt do that?
