Comments on: Afghan endgame and fears of rise in Kashmir violence http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2010/03/31/afghan-endgame-and-fears-of-rise-in-kashmir-violence/ Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: happysun http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2010/03/31/afghan-endgame-and-fears-of-rise-in-kashmir-violence/comment-page-1/#comment-13523 Mon, 19 Apr 2010 20:25:31 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/india/?p=2908#comment-13523 I my self come from kashmir part belonging to pakistan so called azad kashmir on a recent visit what i saw completly surprised me majority of the people in my region were from afganistan or they had come from the region bodering india, I asked a few people as to what they were doing in the valley leaving their homes and land in the mountains the reply i got was that they were scared of the constant shelling, I assume it will be both side shelling one another. There is no industry in azad kashmir the pakistani govt. has not invested in any sort of infrastructure if kashmir was ruled by one honest govt. it can be self suffient and look after if self the tourist industry in that place would be huge. India and pakistan should sit down work something out for them people and in return they would not have to spend huge amount of money on defence which could go towards their own people, everyone would be better off but India cannot let kashmir go because it would lead to its destruction because other regions will want self rule which India cannot afford and it is same with pakistan so the people of kashmir will have to suffer no matter what. They can thank the British, Lord Mountbatten and the U.N for their fate. Both India and Pakistan are there for self interest only, the good thing is our part is not as bad as the other side, this boder should come down like the berlin wall but unfortunatly their is no country out their to help the people of kashmir.

The Afghan end game is not disastrous for India but for Kashmir. Kashmir will see lot of bloodshed and nothinh will come out. We are the victims of India’s Chanakya policy and Pakistan’s ISI

Their language is violence, when they discuss through violence earlier it was kashmir only now afghanistan has added to the list. I appeal both the countries not use Kashmir for their bigger political gains or God will punish you both. Kashmir is bleeding from the [ast20 years and there is lilttle blood left in the Valley, once peaceful seat of sufism.

Last year Kashmir witnessed lowest level violence in the past two decades and the security establishment were upbeat over the achievement. . I believe that even as security forces have been able to bring down the violence level in Kashmir, but the main reason behind the low violence was largely because of Parvez Musharaf’s policy on Kashmir who wanted an amicable solution to the sixty year old problem. He even cracked down on militants in his own country. But now it seems that Pakistan have gone back to its hard-line approach on Kashmir and it is evident from its assertions whether in New York, Islamabad or Delhi.

Pakistan looks more worried with Indian help, why not they do same … rather then supporting Mujahedin?? let come work for peace process…

In fact the insurgency in Kashmir traces its roots to Afghanistan. Mujahedin, who had no tasks on hand after defeating Russia were directed to Kashmir. Hundreds of battle-hardened Afghans have died in Kashmir fighting Indian troops. Now again instability in Afghanistan and proxy wars being fought their by Indians and Pakistanis may have its ill effects on Kashmir situation.

It wants to keep Americans silent and away from the core issue of Kashmir, without which the peace in South Asia is impossible.America should understand that the procrastination of the resolution of Kashmir issue will only make things worse in Afghanistan coz alqaeda and Taliban can easily blackmail Muslim youth by referring to the oppression of their brethren in Kashmir. this will earn them some sympathy and legitimacy that will make winning war for America only a dream that is light years away.
