Comments on: Hindu pilgrims brave Kashmir violence to seek salvation at cave shrine http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2010/07/15/hindu-pilgrims-brave-kashmir-violence-to-seek-salvation-at-cave-shrine/ Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: kusum79 http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2010/07/15/hindu-pilgrims-brave-kashmir-violence-to-seek-salvation-at-cave-shrine/comment-page-1/#comment-14978 Tue, 27 Jul 2010 06:14:51 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/india/?p=3450#comment-14978 I have been going through the other articles by the same author and feel that he has a very narrow view of things. The only way he can analyze things is through a religious angle. In my opinion, such authors, who have been given such a big platform, and have the capacity to influence so many minds should do their research from all angles, capitalism, religion, other nations etc, before defaming one religion and praising another.

I would suggest that we all should start thinking a little more practically than emotionally.

Imagine the amount of business that would be generated by 1.5 lakh pilgrimages. So lets understand the commercial value of the whole season without getting sentimental about how great which community is. Given an oppurtunity to earn money, which would keep you decently provided for, for the next six months, to an option of taking part in freedom rallies and stone throwing, which option would any sensible man, who does not want to make money through terrorist activities opt for?

—I assume you are talking about the partition. Do u disagree that things changed for worse in 1989. Hindus moved out since religious color was given to the movement. Who was the culprit?

@called free media of India not to communalise holy Yatra..these pilgrims are our guests and we will never harm them.”
–who is communalizing?

Kashmir was the only place free from communal violence. I appeal to so called free media of India not to communalise holy Yatra..these pilgrims are our guests and we will never harm them.

People of India are being misguided and wrongly informed about the facts on the ground.

But it is really sad and disgusting to know that certain hard-line and fanatic Hindu political groups are trying to potray the entire situation on communal basis in the backdrop of Amarnath Yatra. People of India are being misguided and wrongly informed about the facts on the ground.
