Kashmir: A solution with negotiation
"As a first step to begin peace I appeal to the government of India and Pakistan that its forces from Kashmir (as a practical way) should called back."
Now after reading my first sentence many of you started judging me and thinking sentences for striking me down. First of all I want to disclaim that all the thoughts are personal and I came to this solution after talking to few people who know how to respect Humanity. I am in favor of freedom of Kashmiris, why because everyone have a birth right to be FREE at least in India. I understand that governments of both nation Pak and India do not want any kind of isolation. This post might help you to think for a different solution.
Solution talk: Killing innocent people, be it Muslim or Kashmiri Pandits is not good for India or Pakistan. When we sit in our drawing room after dinner that time we can't imagine that a family in Kashmir going to sleep hungry because of 3 days curfew. Or how would you feel that whenever you go out to buy vegetable few army officer keep an eye on you from one corner to another. Worst tell me your feeling when you sleep in night and next day you see your neighbour's house is burning on the basis of suspicion.
Security is necessary, everyone needs to protect their house and city and country but how can a Kashmiri trust an army person if they hurt (hurt is rather a miniscule term, people reported army killed and raped too) them rather protecting them? I have a facebook account which is open to all, people can comment there and few nasty people come to my wall just to say Muslims are terrorist! They say all the Muslims are terrorists, and with this attitude you want to grab a portion of Kashmir where Muslim population is more than 70%.
A fellow Kashmiri told me we have no problem to stay friends with Indian Muslims/Sikh/Christians as they don't mock us but we can't stay friends with Hindus. Controlling someone and making them slave is not 20s philosophy, people might use it in 13 or 14 centuries, now things are different.
Irony is everyone support that Kashmir should remain as a part of India but when a Kashmiri come to Delhi, people see them with suspicion. The truth is you can't control people, you can only win their heart! Once Prashan Bhushan Ji (AAM AADMI PARTY) gave a solution for referendum, I think its a brilliant idea, asking people what they want, negotiate with them, giving them proper respect; Yes proper respect which they deserve even though they want to live with or without Indian tag! Make them realise that we want all good for Kashmiris and we consider them as brothers and sisters not like an alien. But still if they don't want to be with us (I know its gonna hurt few people) I support their FREEDOM demand too.
Its high time that we should talk for peace! Thank you so much for reading, if you liked it I m very much grateful, if you don't I can understand!
PS: On a lighter note; Kashmir is still a part of India, all the corruption there (just like Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, AP, MP) is the proof... :)
