Sept 13, 2016: Kashmir narrative is something that has created unrest among people in the whole nation. After the killing of more than 80 people and injuring hundreds, the state of Kashmir is in complete chaos. The fact that an all-party delegation went up to the Hurriyat members, signifies the importance of a dialogue that the government wants to initiate with all the troubled sections of Kashmir.

But as a crisp insult to the leaders, the Hurriyat leader, Syed Shah Geelani refused to open the doors for them also denying any conversation with the government officials. Apart from that Geelani also gave a speech on how Pakistan was their friend and India just an occupying force on them. The speech was thoroughly anti-India and was also alarming, reported a news portal.

“They (New Delhi) will come again to ask what we want. They know the answer to that question. We want freedom,” the octogenarian said. Thanking Pakistan for its support, the Hurriyat leader said, “During this uprising, Pakistan has once again proved that they are our friends and well-wishers. Pakistan and its people shared our pain and raised their voice in our support. They have taken an ethical stand to support our struggle morally, politically and diplomatically.”

He also thanked China, Norway, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, Iran and the Organization of Islamic Countries for expressing concern over the “brutal repression by India” in Kashmir. Hurriyat hawk Geelani also claimed that the current agitation has “unnerved the occupier and its local stooges so much that they have resorted to vilest means to suppress the struggle”.

“The frustration of our occupier is understandable because between us and our freedom stand half a million Indian guns only. Never before have we been so close to freedom with such clarity as we are now,” he claimed, reported Deccan Herald. His speech raises a lot of questions on what the government is doing about such anti-national elements.

It is high time that the BJP-PDP alliance makes Kashmir its priority and analyze the errors in handling the situation. From the question of AFSPA to the ban on pellet guns the ruling alliance needs to ponder over everything. In the name of freedom  for  Kashmir , the sovereignty of our country is threatened by these separatists.

Being a democratic nation India has lent a chance to all for raising their voices on any matter but only time will tell whether peace in can be restored in the country, particularly in Kashmir.


  1. Truth hurts

    First India took 80 innocent lives of Kashmiris and then you want them to talk to you ? Why didn’t you talk to them before doing bloodhed ? Now you are realizing the power of Kashmir Freedom Movement ? Kashmir can never become a part of India. This is a bitter truth.

  2. Its so sad to see that Kashmiris are so misguided. If they get to know the plight of Kashmiris who are now living in Pakistan they’ll get to know how much of a ‘friend’ pakistan is to them

  3. How Kashmir believes that India has only caused harm and Pakistan means all wonderful and will reciprocate to every single demand, is saddening!

Former Military Ruler Pervez Musharraf wanted ‘underhand’ deal in 2007, says Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif

Islamabad, March 22, 2017: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said that former military ruler Pervez Musharraf offered him an ‘underhand’ deal to form a joint government but he turned it down. Addressing the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz parliamentary committee on Tuesday, Sharif said, “Musharraf wanted a secret deal with me in 2007, but I declined.”

Musharraf was the then Pakistan president and Sharif had just returned from exile. The Dawn on Wednesday quoted Sharif as saying that he didn’t believe in making clandestine deals with people who had ruined people’s aspirations.

He said his family did not want to leave Pakistan after the Musharraf-led military coup but was forced to go into exile by the military dictator. “We left the country in a miserable condition and were not allowed to return for a long time,” he said.

The prime minister noted that Musharraf, a former Pakistan army chief, was now facing a similar fate and had left the country in disgrace. “Now, Musharraf is willing to return to the country, but he cannot… it’s divine retribution for his actions,” Sharif said.

Sharif was toppled by Musharraf in a 1999 coup, after which Sharif and his family went to live in Saudi Arabia. However, Sharif’s assertions were disputed by former Musharraf aide and All Pakistan Muslim League member Ahmed Raza Kasuri, the Dawn reported. “I have been working with General Musharraf for a long time and I have never heard any such thing,” he said.
