Resolving the Kashmir Issue: A Kashmiri Perspective PDF Print E-mail

From Asian Affairs: An American Review, Volume 22, Number 1, Spring 1995.

This paper was presented in the British Parliament on June 20, 1994 when Dr. Sazawal was invited to speak along with Dr. Farooq Abdullah.

I was fifteen months old when tribals from the northwest and troops of the Pakistani regular army, under the joint command of Major General Akbar Khan, invaded Jammu and Kashmir (hereafter called Kashmir) in October 1947. As the news of the plunder, brutality, and violence reached Srinagar, where I lived with my family, my father quietly brought home certain capsules from the pharmacy that he owned, and he distributed them to everyone in the family. The only allweather road out of Srinagar had already been seized by the invading hordes, and the only way out of the valley was by aircraft, a means accessible to only a few. The increasing uncertainty about a rescue from India, coupled with the horror stories of rape and mutilation in a Christian convent in Baramulla, created unparalleled horror and panic among the minorities in Srinagar. My family was no exception. From 23 to 27 October 1947, my family was just one cyanide capsule away from self-inflicted death. My father later told me that he wanted us to die in dignity.

Understanding World Geopolitics and its Impact On Kashmir PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Vijay K. Sazawal   
Saturday, 22 February 1992 00:00

On January 14, 1992, in an announcement that did not grab the world headlines, the United States (US) endorsed the assumption of power in Algeria by its military.

Introduction

This announcement, which perhaps did not get adequate attention in the Indian press, represented a stunning reversal of the political position advocated by the US only a day earlier. In that one day, the US made crucial decisions with far reaching implications. In fact, as will be discussed later, the US announcement on Algeria will prove to be a major debacle for Pakistan and its trained terrorist operatives in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir (hereafter called Kashmir). These repercussions far exceed anything that the "Operation Vikram" achieved or could have even under the best circumstances.
