Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and his Hurriyat Conference are calling for the banning of Israeli tourists to Kashmir. Yet another case of Islamicization of values in Kashmir.

'Although we welcome guests and visitors, however, we cannot accept agents of the Israeli Intelligence agencies visiting Kashmir in the garb of tourists,' Mirwaiz said in his Friday sermon at the historic Grand Mosque of Srinagar. 'How can the government invite Israelis, when they are expressly anti-Muslim and anti-Islam?,' he asked.

Hurriyat (G) has reservations PDF Print E-mail

[From Daily Excelsior]: Senior Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani has spoken his mind on the subject of return and rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandit internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the valley. He has threatened to launch mass agitation in Kashmir valley if "the Government of India does not drop its plan of rehabilitating the migrant Kashmiri Pandits in the safe zones."


Launching mass movement to stonewall return and rehabilitation of IDPs belonging to any religious minority in any part of the globe, to its native land is tantamount to violating the clauses of the UN Human Rights Charter. It is this very Charter which the Hurriyat factions persistently invoke to establish their case of "human rights violation of the people of Kashmir by the security forces." And it is this very Charter which various NGOs invoke to orchestrate "violation of human rights of ordinary civilians by externally armed and sponsored militants in Jammu and Kashmir."

Report of the interlocutors on J&K PDF Print E-mail

[From Organiser] Instead of doing, what is its own job, the Government of India, has found novel ways, to dodge its own responsibilities, by setting up commissions, committees and now what are called interlocutors. The interlocutors are, supposed to carry on the dialogue with disgruntled individuals and groups. This privilege is not extended to peace loving citizens groups, but to the separatists, like the ones in Kashmir, Naxalites, Maoists, and anybody who can exert pressure on the Government, by the force of guns.


Out of the three Kashmir specific interlocutors, two of them have been guests of a front man, of ISI, Ghulam Nabi Fai, who has been convicted in USA. Once this fact became public, it was the moral, though not legal duty of the two interlocutors, to disassociate themselves with any dialogue on behalf of the Government of India. It is surprising that even the Government of India, kept quite, instead of showing them the boot.
There is an old saying, that “God save me, from my friends, my enemies, I can tackle myself”. Appointment of interlocutors was a sign of gross weaknesses. Even when, the Prime Minister visited Srinagar, the terrorists and their front men declared bandh. Despite his open invitation, nobody came to meet him. The same happened with the Kashmir interlocutors.

[As published at Daily Mail] Displaced in your own country, willy nilly ignored by different political parties and in many ways expunged from the national discourse.


That in many ways sums up the plight of Kashmiri Pandits in India. One of the greatest human tragedies since partition, a lost community and perhaps at one level a lost generation.


Twenty odd years after the great exodus from the Valley where they left their homes and hearths, many Kashmiri Pandits have picked up the pieces and gone back to living their lives. Though, it is not the same thing, at least the majority have thrown themselves back into the hurly burly of a daily regimen. Survival after all is essential and since nature abhors a vacuum, life has to go on. There is however, a minority, which is still struggling to come to terms with this displacement.
