IAKF foreign correspondent and Retired Indian Army Colonel, T.K. Tikoo, responds in detail to the outrageous claims of the separatist Kashmiri elements regarding the recent proposed land allotment for Amarnath pilgrims.

The political situation in Kashmir valley is reminiscent of the events of 1990, when lakhs of Kashmiri Muslims came out on the streets shouting themselves hoarse with “Hum kya chahte Aazadi” (we want independence). Ostensibly, these protests are against Indian “moves” to change the demography of Kashmir and a mass movement to preserve its ecology, as Mufti Mohammed Sayed and his Hurriyat masters would have the gullible press and ill informed Indian leadership to believe.

What does politics mean to you?

It means a passion to serve the disfranchised and the poor. In Kashmir, however, politics means "of the oligarchs, for the oligarchs, and by the oligarchs." "Local politics" means taking cheap potshots among the elected politicians, and "international politics" means taking cheap potshots among unelected politicians.

Perspective from IAKF President.
