HINDUS ARE PERSECUTED AND OUR GURUS DO NOTHING

• Wake up • Arise Awake • Hindu Dharma under Threat • Hindu Unity•
• Hindu Vote is Sacred • Hindu Renaissance • Sustaining Dharma • Save Mandirs•
"Unless the country is protected, Dharma cannot be protected, and unless Dharma is protected, the country cannot be protected. ....also, protect the Dharmi to protect Dharma, and remember: 'Hindu Vote is Sacred: Never Barter it Away' -- This should be our refrain/campaign all over India, at this critical juncture. We should demand follow-up action on the Historic ‘Tirupati Declaration’ (July 15, 2006), the three cardinal Articles of which are: 1) 'We Hindus assembled here, in Tirupati, declare that we do not support, directly or indirectly, any group, institution, religion, media, or political force, which preaches, practices or works against Hindu Dharma in this country'; 2) 'We appeal to all the Hindus in this country and elsewhere to subscribe to and support this declaration, the Tirupati Declaration'; 3) 'We want all the Hindu religious endowments to be managed by Hindu bodies, and not by the government. We want the secular government to release all religious endowments from its hold.' " -- Swami Dayananda Saraswati.

The volcano of Hindu fury erupts sometimes

=================================
The Bushfire of Hindu Rage

Kill Jihadi Outfits

Hindu Revolution in Jammu and Kashmir
================================

All concerned would do well
to look at the root cause of Hindu fury,
and try to address their frustrations.

* Instead of appealing for calm and communal harmony, political leaders, journalists, and spiritual leaders, would do well to look at the root cause of Hindu fury, and try to address their frustrations.

* Hindus have had enough. If this government, or the next, does not take note of their frustrations, we might very well see more Jammus erupting in the coming months and years.

Hindus gave refuge to all persecuted minorities of the world. It’s a pity that these two communities (Christians and Muslims) turned against their Hindu brethren, the former by way of lured conversions, and the latter with bloody invasions.

Hindus, who accept everybody and welcome all religions, are mocked and bombs are planted in their markets, their trains and temples are attacked, they are chased out of their homelands; television and newspapers make fun of them, their own politicians ostracise them.

So, sometimes, Enough is Enough. At some point, Hindus, the most peace-loving people in the world, those Mahatma Gandhi once called gently ‘cowards’, erupt in fury — uncontrolled fury.

Hindus never complain about their government giving billion of rupees to Indian Muslims for the pilgrimage to Mecca. But when Hindus need shelters, toilets and basic facilities at a height of 15,000 feet to worship at Amarnath, it is denied by the same government. So they erupt in fury.

Instead of appealing for calm and communal harmony, political leaders, journalists, and spiritual leaders, would do well to look at the root cause of Hindu fury, and try to address their frustrations.

Journalists should also do a little bit of introspection. Hindus have had enough. If this government, or the next, does not take note of their frustrations, we might very well see more Jammus erupting in the coming months and years.

INSTEAD of calling an all-party meet to resolve the Jammu and Kashmir row, the government would do well to try to understand the fury of Hindus and not limit the scope of the introspection to the Amarnath issue. Are Hindus angry only with the hypocrisy of the government on the land issue? Are there no other topics that make them furious?

Hindus are a peace-loving people. The average Hindu is easy-going and accepts you and your diversity, whether you are Christian, Muslim, Parsi or Jain, Arab, French or Chinese. He goes about his business and usually does not interfere in yours. In fact they take it a little further: They hate trouble and go out of their way to avoid it.

Everywhere in the world, on the other hand, Hindus are hounded and humiliated; be it in Fiji where an elected government was twice deposed in an armed coup, or in Pakistan and Bangladesh, where Muslims target Hindus every time they want to vent their anger against India (read Taslima Nasreen’s book Lajja). There were one million Hindus in the valley of Kashmir in 1900. Only a few hundred are left today, the rest having been forced to flee through terror. In Assam, Tripura, or Nagaland, Hindus are being outnumbered by Bangladeshi illegal immigrants and terrorised by pro-Christian separatist groups, such as the Bodos or the Mizos, while local governments often turn a blind eye. Their temples are being taken over in states like Kerala or Karnataka, the donations appropriated by the state governments.

Yet in 3,500 years of known existence, Hindus have never invaded another country and never tried to impose their religion upon others. No, it has rather been through peaceful invasions that Hinduism has stormed the world, whether in the East, witness Angkor Wat, or in the West today, where the byproducts of Hinduism, yoga, meditation, ayurveda, pranayama have been adopted by millions.

Hindus also gave refuge to all persecuted minorities of the world. It’s a pity that these two communities turned against their Hindu brethren, the former by way of lured conversions, and the latter with bloody invasions.

Hindus, who accept everybody and welcome all religions, are mocked and bombs are planted in their markets, their trains and temples are attacked, they are chased out of their homelands; television and newspapers make fun of them, their own politicians ostracise them.

So, sometimes, Enough is Enough. At some point, Hindus, the most peace-loving people in the world, those Mahatma Gandhi once called gently ‘cowards’, erupt in fury — uncontrolled fury.

Yes, one should condemn the Gujarat pogrom, but one should look also at the causes. It is not only the 36 innocent Hindu women and children who were burnt to death in a train by a mob of criminals. It is also how much silent frustration and anger must have built over the years, decades, or centuries even, amongst Gujarati Hindus, that in one moment, 1,25.000 Hindus, normal, peaceful people, came out on the streets of Ahmedabad with such fury.

The same thing is true of Jammu and the Amarnath issue. Hindus never complain about their government giving billion of rupees to Indian Muslims for the pilgrimage to Mecca. But when Hindus need shelters, toilets and basic facilities at a height of 15,000 feet to worship at Amarnath, it is denied by the same government. So they erupt in fury.

Instead of appealing for calm and communal harmony, instead of giving us all this eyewash about a 500-year-old Dargah ‘mostly patronised by Hindus’ political leaders, journalists, and spiritual leaders, would do well to look at the root cause of Hindu fury, and try to address their frustrations.

Journalists should also do a little bit of introspection. Hindus have had enough. If this government, or the next, does not take note of their frustrations, we might very well see more Jammus erupting in the coming months and years.

Subj: Dodging the Islamic-Jehad will not save the Hindu


1. Demonstration against religious cleansing by Kashmiri Islamists
Venue: High Commission of India, India House, Aldwych
Time: 2pm on Thursday 14th August


Kashmiri Pandits have been ethnically cleansed from their homeland by an evil ideology of Islamists and to which the Government of India has bowed out of fear for the last 60 years.

Last month these Islamists have denied the fundamental right of Hindus to visit their sacred pilgrimage, Amarnaath, in their own homeland of Kashmir.
A Spate of attacks has begun again against the homes of innocent Hindus who ask for the safety of their sacred Pilgrimages and the visiting Pilgrims.
The Indo European Kashmir Forum (IEKF), supported by Hindu Council UK, condemns this violent ideology of Islamists and further it condemns the Government of India for not protecting the peaceful rights of all its citizens.

2. My Take:

The Sullas of Kashmir have been carrying out their Jehadic-war, against the Kafir-Hindus with active support from Pakistan & other Islamic countries. These Moslem-Mujahdeens have been giving sleepless nights, even to the Hindus of Jammu (a Hindu majority area of Kashmir). Hindus so far have tried to dispel this Jehadic violence, by trying to dodge it. But this Islamic hatred of Kafirs, cannot be dispelled, by simply dodging it. It has to be confronted squarely with steady hands and with resoluteness of the mind. A conciliatory attitude on the Hindu, achieves not a damn thing.

3. Moslems are told that, killing a Kafir is a sure passport to Janat (Moslem's Paradise). He who kills a Kafir, goes to Janat. If instead of confronting Islam, we try to dodge it, we do a moronic act, and are inviting the slaughter of the Hindu. It is the conciliatory attitude of the Hindu that has been letting the Hindu down, for the last 1200 years. I hope the Hindu learns from his past mistakes.

4. Another mistake that the Hindu makes is sending appeals to the government of Kashmir, to the government of India, & even to the UNO, to break the strangle-hold of Islam, over the life and fortunes of the Hindus of Kashmir. Instead of taking charge of his own destiny, the Hindu has been depending on others, to solve his problems. The Hindu so far has not realized that, Hinduism Defense is the job of the Hindu. No body else, nor any divine power is going to save the Hindus of Kashmir, or the Hindus of India. The Hindu has to be become more assertive, even more aggressive. That is about the size of it.

5. Hindus of the world: Make no mistake about it. The Hindu society is under siege, not only in Kashmir, but in the rest of India as well. The politics of Phoney-Liberalism is striving to throttle, Hinduism out of existence. The brave Hindus must recognize the dire future of the Hindu, and take prompt steps to reverse this trend, by taking charge of his destiny, and by being prepared to pay the price of Hinduism defense. It is a simple choice.

Jammu unrest, a people's movement

* It is praise-worthy to notice that Hindus of Jammu, are finally coming out in droves, to protest the inhumanities that have been inflicted upon them for decades (if not for centuries) & are still being inflicted upon the Hindus. That is a good take-off movement, but the Hindus of Jammu must take charge of their destiny, and not depend upon slogan-shouting or protesting alone. They must put their enormous resources of education, intellectualism, earning-skills, and financial resources, to convert them into enormous Hindu-Power.

* The fruits of victory were snatched away from our brave & victorious soldiers in Kashmir, in the year of 1948. Had our soldiers been allowed to clear out the Sulla-raiders, from the whole of Kashmir, there would not have been any insurgency in the valley of Kashmir, nor would there have been any Article 370 in our constitution. Our dumb politicians sure let us down. Little did these dumb politicians realize, the International Islamic conspiracy to eliminate Kafirs, and to balkanize the country of India.

* It is a total disgrace for the proud Hindus of India, to let the traitors of Kashmir run things for us Hindus, and to terrorize & brutalize the Hindu.

1. Jammu unrest, a people's movement

Vikram Chowdhary

Friday, August 08, 2008, (Jammu)

Despite all the politicisation of the Amarnath land row, the people of Jammu feel this is a movement that has started from them.

The rich and famous of Jammu are all out on the streets in the posh Gandhi Nagar area of Jammu.

Vikram Handa, a doctor in the region says it's a spontaneous move. He and his wife Gurpreet, a school principal have been doing their bit to support the campaign. They are making CDs' and distributing it free of cost to others.

Vikram said, "It's a movement of the people, there is no leader there is no lecturing in our group, we all go out together and we come together. There is no leader, nobody controls us its just the people's movement."

What began as a move by a handful of members of the Amarnath yatra Sangarsh Samiti has now become a mass movement with nearly a thousand people on board.

And with each day more and more people are joining in the campaign holding peace marches.

They assert that they don't belong to any political party.

Gurpreet said, "Door to door we have done canvassing and people are coming out, much beyond our control, but see this is cause for everyone, nobody is doing for one another, we are doing for ourselves, we want land and nothing short of land."

From a feeble political movement to a mass movement -passionate campaigners like Handas won't let the momentum die down if the solution is not acceptable to them.

Political efforts

An all-party delegation led by Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil will undertake a two-day visit to Jammu and Srinagar from Saturday in an attempt to end the Amarnath land transfer row.

The delegation comprises of about 12 leaders drawn from different political parties.

After more than a month long agitation, things were much calmer in Jammu on Thursday with the Amarnath Sangharsh Samiti that's been leading the agitation saying that its willing to talk to the government.

Prime minister Manmohan Singh also spoke to BJP leader L K Advani over the phone, who is understood to have told him that his party's cooperation would depend on government initiating a dialogue with the Amarnath Sangarsh Samiti.

My Take:

It is praise-worthy to notice that Hindus of Jammu, are finally coming out in droves, to protest the inhumanities that have been inflicted upon them for decades (if not for centuries) & are still being inflicted upon the Hindus. That is a good take-off movement, but the Hindus of Jammu must take charge of their destiny, and not depend upon slogan-shouting or protesting alone. They must put their enormous resources of education, intellectualism, earning-skills, and financial resources, to convert them into enormous Hindu-Power.

2. The fruits of victory were snatched away from our brave & victorious soldiers in Kashmir, in the year of 1948. Had our soldiers been allowed to clear out the Sulla-raiders, from the whole of Kashmir, there would not have been any insurgency in the valley of Kashmir, nor would there have been any Article 370 in our constitution. Our dumb politicians sure let us down. Little did these dumb politicians realize, the International Islamic conspiracy to eliminate Kafirs, and to balkanize the country of India.

3. If our Hindu politicians had been assertive, Kashmir today would have been just like any other state of India, like Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Panjab, Gujerat et al. But that is not so, and now the traitors of Kashmir (the Sullas) are raising hell in Kashmir, and the Hindus of Kashmir & of the rest of India, have been tolerating their non-sense & their militant Islamic Fundamentalism, which should have been decimated. Even now, the only sensible approach is to eradicate the traitorous elements of Kashmir, no matter how much effort it takes. It is a total disgrace for the proud Hindus of India, to let the traitors of Kashmir run things for us Hindus, and to terrorize & brutalize the Hindu.

4. It is manifestly impossible to compromise or negotiate with the Sulla. The Sulla must be put in his place, and crushed. That is the only option, if the Hindu wants to live in peace.

Appeasement is never good for a nation

From: Surinder Paul Attri
Date: Sat, Aug 9, 2008 at 3:47 AM

Subj: Appeasement is never good for a nation

1. Appeasement never works, especially when it comes to dealing with the Moslems. Appeasement of the Sullas of Kashmir, does not have ghost of a chance, for any Hindu politician. Moslems are taught ( indoctrinated ) that Islam is superior to all other religions, as a consequence Moslems are superior to all others (Kafirs or Non-Moslem Infidels), and are destined to rule over the world, and that it is the duty of every Moslem to spread the sway of Islam. Mullahs & Maulvi constantly harp on the theme that, the cowardly Hindu can never win in a battle against the Islamist forces, and that the flag of Islam must be hoisted on this Kafir-Land (that is, Hindustan/India ).

2. The origin of the Kashmiri-Moslem’s separatism was in the setting up of All Jammu & Kashmir National Conference, with Sheikh Abdullah as its president. In its thinking & objectives, it was exactly like the Moslem League of India, and was committed to the overthrow of the Dogra rule of Kashmir. Neither Nehru nor the Indian National Congress realized the separatist/traitorous nature of Sheikh Abdullah, and displayed deplorable lack of clarity of thinking. Abdullah continued to harp on the theme of, unique nature of Kashmir, and the right of Kashmiri people to freedom on withdrawal of British power from India.

3. Both Nehru & the Congress continued to pamper this good-for-nothing Kashmiri-Sulla (Sheikh Abdullah ), and we now know the Frankenstein’s monster that has grown out of it, in the state of Kashmir, with a prescription for disaster written for the Hindus of Kashmir, by quack-politicians, who were ruling the roast at that point in time. Behind the craftiness of Abdullah was his dream of an independent Islamic-Sheikdom for himself. He found the Islamic-Clergy & Madrassa teachers, as invaluable allies in securing the frenzied support of the Moslem masses of Kashmir, with strong indoctrination in every mosque, every maktab, every madrassa, & every Islamic institution, for instruction in the teachings of Quran. In this way, Abdullah prepared a firm foundation for the separation of Kashmir from India.

4. Many years have gone by since the days of traitor Sheikh Abdullah, but we have let things go on as usual, and learned nothing. Hindus by & large have not realized that, Sullas of Kashmir are loyal only to their Islam, and the Phoney-Liberal Hindu politicians are loyal only to their pockets. As a consequence, the malignant tumor of subversion and secession has invaded every part of the Kashmir valley.

5. In spite of all these disasters of the past, the Hindus of Kashmir can still win, but only if they can muster up enough courage & determination to win. The intellectual, educational, job-skills, and financial resources of the Hindu, are far superior to corresponding resources of the Sullas. Hindu has lot of power, but is not using his enormous power, because of the habit of passivity & defensiveness, sanctioned only by customs of the past. Most important thing that the Hindu has to do is to stop thinking of insurgents as Moslems, but to regard them as traitors. Hindu has no other choice. Kashmir is the Hindu’s land, and it is the duty of the Hindu, to defend his homeland. In this war, there is no room for leniency or compassion for the traitorous Sullas of Kashmir. Hindus of the rest of India, cannot abandon their Kashmiri Hindu Brethren, and must come out with open support, to defend their kith & kin living in Kashmir.

6. Can this be done? Absolutely yes. We are living in the world of high-technology & force-multipliers. In these areas, the Hindu is way ahead of his Sulla-Counterpart. Hindu only needs RKOPs (right kind of people ), to lead his battle of destiny. Such RKOPs do exist, and can be put to use in the service of Hindu Order.

Assert India's Hindu identity
Gautam Mukherjee
http://www.dailypioneer.com/indexn12.asp?main_variable
=EDITS&file_name=edit3%2Etxt&counter_img=3

India is its own worst enemy because it artificially denies the sentiments and inclinations, if not the rights, of the majority of the people in the name of a bizarre and unsustainable 'secularism'. This has been so from the birth of this nation, 62 years ago, grown out of a desire to differentiate ourselves from Islamic Pakistan, even though we often disguise this arrogant perversity as robust democratic discourse. But can we afford to go on denying our majoritarian birthright and debilitating our will? Can we afford to ignore that those gaining from our stance are the enemies of our nation?

India must realise that rescue lies in shifting the entire polity sharp right, standing up and being counted as a Hindu-majority country, with equal rights and protections for our many minority communities. It may well feel akin to moving a very heavy oak conference table. But making this move to the right, and truthfulness, would change the political tone, tenor and content of debate, and signal, once and for all, that we have had enough of being exploited by fringe elements.

We all realise, patently, that every Leftist is not a Maoist, every rough-hewn citizen is not a gangster, and every Muslim is not a terrorist. But we need to protect the one and destroy the other if we, the rest of us, want to survive. And we need to get much better at telling one from the other. And also, very importantly, we have to stop subverting the interests of the majority continually in favour of one minority or the other that seems committed not only to irritating brinkmanship but ultimately to a dark and mysterious self-destructiveness.

We have too many permanent burning issues and a much-bloodied landscape already. But with a shift to the right by the demands of common sense led by the major political parties, we will benefit the economy as well, combining pragmatic policies with an openly majoritarian bias to replace an unsustainable hypocrisy.

Otherwise, in the face of political cant and apathy, it is anarchy, fuelled by the frustration of both motivated and ordinary people, that will inexorably take over. It is anarchy unchecked that animates all agitations in India nowadays, more so than when VS Naipaul called it "a million mutinies now," with the law and its enforcers missing in action.

And everywhere, whether it be a land acquisition related protest or anti-industrialisation agitation at Nandigram or Singur in West Bengal, Maoist mayhem in Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Orissa, Gujjar self-assertion in Rajasthan, anti-Dera agitation in Punjab and, of course, the mother of all institutionalised ferment, that crown of thorns called Kashmir, no one seems to be the least bit scared of retribution.

If only we were Chinese, we wouldn't have a Jammu & Kashmir problem at all. If we were Chinese, we would set about reneging on Article 370 even before the ink was dry on the document sanctioning it. The Chinese do not allow previous commitments to get in the way of present expediency, let alone their strategic interest. They have learned their lessons well, from being at the receiving end of their own colonial experience replete with horrendous European and Japanese exploitation and opium-addicted slavery. The Chinese have also learned from the solemn treaty-breaking ways of the imperial British Empire and, indeed, from the actions of the current king-of-the-world, the unilateral and all-powerful United States of America.

So if we were Chinese, we would not hesitate to put down the cynical and unruly politics of the Kashmir Valley, pressing it into ruthless submission. We would have no compunctions about disabusing the Valley politicians of their grandiose notions. We would engineer a massive demographic rebalancing -- aided, abetted, and incentivised -- all over this multi-religious and vast country. We would deliberately and swiftly change the character and dynamics of Jammu & Kashmir once and for all. There would be no Muslim-majority Kashmir any more than the Dalai Lama and his followers can hope to see a Tibetan-majority Tibet.

If we were Chinese, we would set about putting right historic wrongs. We would put all the shamefully displaced Pandits back where they belong, restoring their homes, land and dignity to them. In addition, we would extract reparations and indemnities for their trauma, suffering and humiliation from their erstwhile friends and neighbours turned tormentors and usurpers.

We would drive most, if not all, of the rabid Islamist terrorists and their vociferous supporters across the border. We would drive them into so-called 'Azad Kashmir' where they can savour life on the other side, much closer to their friends, compatriots and benefactors.

We would let the rest of the Islamists -- appropriately reoriented to ground realities and reminded of their duties as much as their rights from time to time -- participate in democratic discourse and hold high office if elected at all by the reformed electorate and the restorative magic of universal suffrage.

But being India, we continue to meekly accept, even as we may be forced to reconsider by popular outrage as is being witnessed in Jammu, the national humiliation enshrined as Article 370. An article and covenant which enables a coterie of fifth columnist politicians to openly favour Pakistani intervention and influence in the Kashmir Valley and and allows terrorists to hold the Indian Government as well as the Indian nation to ransom.

The infamous and unfair Article 370 is not only a bizarre historical inheritance but also lies at the root of much that is wrong with our national politics of appeasement. Article 370 was an act of capitulation from the start, understandable in the aftermath of 1947 when it was used to assuage the apprehensions of a Muslim-majority province in the backdrop of the partition. But why do we uphold it today? Where were such niceties when we stripped the princes of their titles, land and privy purses, and nationalised banks at will?

Indeed, in the face of Government paralysis and endemic impotence on issues concerning Kashmir, it is the people of Jammu who are showing the country the way forward. They are likely to get their way on Amarnath sooner or later and signal to all of us that the time has come to stop taking for granted the docile support of the majority community in the face of continuous injustice.

This is Kashmiri baiting at its worst
http://www.dailypioneer.com/indexn12.asp?main_variable

The other voice: Sajad Lone | Chairman, J&K Peoples Conference

If the outcry against land transfer revocation was 'anti-Hindu' then why aren't Hindus all over India protesting? The ongoing blockade is an act of war against the Kashmiri nation.

The Amarnath Yatra has been facilitated by the Muslims of Kashmir for nearly two centuries now. The Yatra had was going on in both the colonial and post-1947 periods. The relationship between the Yatris and the people of Kashmir came into existence before the current geographical concept of India came into existence. The people of Kashmir treat the Yatris as their revered guests and are honoured to host the yatra.

The Government passed an order in May 2008 transferring approximately 100 acres of land to the Amarnath Shrine board. The people of Kashmir resented the land transfer order as it amounted to gross interference between the guests (Yatris) and the hosts (Kashmiris). The people of Kashmir agitated and the government relented and revoked the order.

Now we have an agitation in Jammu where the demand is to cancel the revocation order. Where does Jammu come in? In the entire history of the Amanath Yatra have the people of Jammu ever conducted the yatra? Did they ever make a demand that land be transferred to the Amarnath shrine board? A dispute arose between government, the people of Kashmir and the Amarnath shrine board -- which was duly resolved. Jammu was never a party to that dispute.

Now, if it was not a party to the dispute why should it be bothered about its outcome and start agitating ? One of the arguments being put forward is that the agitators in Kashmir were Muslims protesting against transfer of land to a Hindu shrine. Assuming this is true -- why are only the Hindus in Jammu protesting. If people of Kashmir have shown disrespect for a Hindu shrine, Hindus all around India would have protested. It is not a matter of Hindu versus Muslim, neither is the agitation in Jammu pro-Hindu. It is plainly a reflection of anti-Kashmiri venom.

The current agitation was initially facilitated by the state administration and now it seems to have gone out of hand. It is a free for all. Fanatic versions of Hindu demagoguery are openly on the show across Jammu. Rhetoricians are being pooled in with the help of Hindu nationalist parties to vitiate the environment and ensure communal turbulence.

The anti-Kashmiri venom in Jammu has been allowed to foment by the state administration and only after active facilitation have the hooligans and vandals been able to impose an economic blockade on the people of Kashmir. The economic blockade by the hooligan sections of the Jammu society is an act of war against the Kashmiri nation.

If a nation is forced into starvation by imposing a blockade it is an act of war. There is an unofficial embargo against the Kashmiris. Economic blockade constitutes an instrument of economic warfare as per international law. This particular mode of war has been historically used by sovereign states and by the UN Security Council. The only difference in the current economic blockade is that it is perhaps for the first time that hooligans and not sovereign states are imposing and enforcing an economic blockade. Economic pressure is being exerted in order to gain supremacy in the conflict. Even the most fascist states have exempted medicines and essential items from an economic blockade.

The current economic blockade imposed on the Kashmiris nourishes no such pretensions. Even baby milk powder and medicines are not being allowed. The export of horticulture products like apples has been strategically stopped to demolish the horticulture industry by ensuring that the apples are stranded into rot. This reminds us of the demolition of the horticulture industry of Gazans including the famed strawberries when Israelis enforced an economic blockade and strawberries worth millions of dollars rotted away.

The roots of the current malaise can be traced to coercive demography. The current demographic set up in the state of J & K is a hangover of the colonial era and has not evolved naturally. While the demographic structure in the colonial era was tailored to suit the erstwhile Maharaja of Kashmir. Post-1947, the demography was left unchanged to suit the political interests of the Indian state. The majority of the inhabitants of Jammu district, Kathua district and Udhampur city do not ethnically identify themselves with the rest of the state of J & K. These three areas have been redefined as the Jammu region and areas with intense Kashmiri ethnic roots like Doda, Bhaderwah, Kishtwar, Poonch, Rajouri, Basholi, Bani, Gool, Arnas have clubbed along with the Jammu region. This serves the purpose of marketing the concept of mismatch in regional aspirations.

So, if Jammu and Kathua agitate, the marketing version is that the entire Jammu region is agitating. Even in the current agitation it is only the two districts of Jammu and Kathua and Udhampur city which is basically on the boil.

The solution to the current conflict does not lie in resolving the land deal issue. The land deal issue is a convenient excuse and typifies the symptom not the disease. Treating the disease would mean allowing the nurturance of demography, defined by history and ethnicity.

SHUTDOWN IN KASHMIR,

SEPARATIST LEADERS

UNDER HOUSE ARREST

Indo-Asian News Service
Srinagar, August 08, 2008

Authorities put several separatist leaders under house arrest on Friday even as a complete shutdown crippled life in Srinagar.

Senior separatist leaders, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Shabir Ahmad Shah were put under house arrest by the authorities to prevent their proposed march to the headquarters of the United Nations Military Observers Group (UNMOG) in this summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir.

The separatist leaders had announced their march to the headquarters of UNMOG to present a memorandum against the alleged economic blockade of the Kashmir valley and the harassment of the minority Muslim community in the Jammu region.

Another senior separatist leader and chairman of the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik is in the intensive care unit of Soura Medical Institute here after his condition deteriorated on Thursday morning. Doctors attending on him said his condition was now stable.

All markets, educational institutions, banks and public transport remained closed here on Friday. Attendance in government offices was thin because of the non-availability of public transport in the city.

The supply of mutton and poultry was also hit as the valley depends entirely on Rajasthan and Delhi for its mutton supply. The local production of sheep is too low to meet the requirement.

According to reports, life was totally thrown out of gear in the south Kashmir districts of Anantnag, Pulwama, Shopian and Kulgam because of the shutdown. But there was no report of any untoward incident till noon.

Markets also remained closed in north Kashmir districts of Baramulla, Bandipora, Kupwara and Ganderbal.

The shutdown which entered its fourth day Friday began following the death of a protesting youth in the Maisuma locality of the city Tuesday.

Jammu Vs. Kashmir
Lookback: Khursheed Wani

=OPED&file_name=opd1%2Etxt&counter_img=1

Saturday Special focuses on the unique trajectory acquired by Kashmiri separatism thanks to the Amarnath issue. With the Hindus of Jammu striking an uncharacteristically tough posture, one wonders if its time to reexamine the Owen Dixon plan.

Barring two districts of Leh and Kargil of Ladakh region, the entire Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) has been hit by the aftermath of the controversial land transfer order of May 26, 2008 diverting a chunk of 39.88 acres of land to Shri Amaranth Shrine Board (SASB). Even though the order was cancelled on July 1 following an unprecedented resistance in the Kashmir Valley followed by the breaking of the five-and-a-half-year coalition and fall of Ghulam Nabi Azad led government, the issue refused to die down. As Kashmir returned to normal after the celebrations on the cancellation of the order, the people in Jammu started exhibiting their strength to oppose the government's move. Against the nine-day-uprising in Kashmir, the social, political and religious groups in Jammu under the banner of Amarnath Yatra Sangarsh Samiti (AYSS) started a new agitation which resembled a Hindu Intifada to compel the Governor's administration to reverse the cancellation order. It accused the Government of prostrating in front of "anti-India and separatist elements backed by terrorists".

Governor NN Vohra, whose involvement in J&K affairs since 2002 as the Centre's interlocutor qualified him to occupy Raj Bhawan in Srinagar, failed to sense the fallout of the land transfer issue. Eventually, he ignored the brewing resentment in Jammu city and its Hindu-dominated adjoining areas. The situation became apparent, at least for the Governor, when it took a communal turn. The agitators in Jammu warned the Kashmiris to leave the area and announced to block the 300-kilometer Srinagar-Jammu National Highway, the lone fair-weather lifeline of the Valley. Dozens of vehicles were torched and supplies to the Valley including those of essential commodities were stopped. The worsening situation forced the authorities to clamp curfew in Jammu and the police resorted to firing at Samba that killed two protestors, an incident that was witnessed in Jammu first time in several decades.

The Jammu agitation took place at a time when fruit season was at its peak in Kashmir. Each day, dozens of fruit-laden trucks were making their way to markets in Delhi and other states through the volatile parts of Jammu. Elements in the Jammu agitation targeted these trucks to make their voices heard and felt.

This evoked a chain reaction in the valley. The separatists, as also the mainstream political parties including the PDP and the National Conference, were quick to refer the emerging situation to as "economic blockade" of Kashmir. The separatists attempted to give the situation an international colour. Mirwaiz Omar Farooq, head of a faction of Hurriyat Conference appealed to the UN and the OIC to help Kashmiris out of the "grim situation". The traders and the fruit growers, backed and encouraged by the separatists, warned the government that failure of providing their vehicles a safe passage through would force them to divert their trucks towards Muzaffarabad and Rawalpindi. They even announced this on August 6.

The "Muzaffarabad chalo" slogan is gaining currency in the Valley. The mainstream parties, which are cashing in on the situation to set agenda for the forthcoming assembly elections, are identifying themselves with the slogan. Mehbooba Mufti, chief of the PDP, boasted that the Muzaffarabad road, which has been opened by "my father" would be the last resort for Kashmiris if the Jammuites did not lift their blockade. Farooq Abdullah, the patron of National Conference, began publicly questioning the wisdom of his father, Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah, who had decided to J&K joining India.

The administration is caught in a Catch-22 situation. On the one hand, the situation in Jammu is going out of hand with the Samiti gaining more public support. On the other, the separatists in Kashmir, emboldened by the outcome of June-end resistance, are ready to resist any decision by the government to tamper with the cancelled land transfer order. So, quite naturally, the all-party meeting convened by the Prime Minister in New Delhi failed to take any concrete step on the resolution of the crisis. Ironically, the politicians in Kashmir Valley as also in Jammu have least control on the diametrically opposite public sentiments. They follow the public rather than leading them, creating a precarious situation for the governor administration to handle.

The Governor's administration has started addressing the root of the problem to get out of the crisis. On Thursday, eight of the 10 members of the SASB tendered their resignations to him, paving the way for the reconstitution of the Shrine Board. One opinion is that that Governor would hand over the Chairmanship of the Board to an eminent Hindu personality of the state, preferably from Jammu, like the former Sadr-e-Riyasat, Karan Singh, or the former Chief Justice of India, Justice (retd) Adarsh Sen Anand, and include in the board representatives of the Kashmiri Pandits. The reconstituted Board would be given the overall responsibility of the conduct of annual yatra, besides authorising it to temporarily use the controversial land for erecting makeshift facilities for the pilgrims.

Observers say that the Governor's administration should use back channel methods to coax the Sangarsh Samiti as also the separatists in Kashmir to arrive on a compromise on the issue. Otherwise, it has the potential not only to disintegrate the state but also put a question mark on Kashmir's future with India.

Romney Marsh unlimbered a bulky fusion pistol and cut down three guards with one wide-angled blast. It was started by Wickenburg's namesake founder, Henry Wickenburg. The most active places on the play are Caddo, Bienville, Bossier, DeSoto, Red River, and Webster parishes of Louisiana.
