Comments on: Kashmir seeks return of hanged separatist leader’s remains http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2011/02/11/kashmir-seeks-return-of-hanged-separatist-leaders-remains/ Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: SSR3699 http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2011/02/11/kashmir-seeks-return-of-hanged-separatist-leaders-remains/comment-page-1/#comment-32074 Fri, 31 Oct 2014 09:33:52 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/india/?p=4288#comment-32074 I take serious objection to the manner and style in which this article has been wriyyen. It seems the author is trying to insuniate, that Kashmir is not a part of Indian sovereign. This is with special reference to the last line “should India return the remains?”
As far as separatists such as Bhat are concerned, I’m sure he was hanged as per the due process of law. So, there is no reason to eulogize such an enemy of the state and give him such a heroic portrayal. This just seems like material for anti-India minded sycophants to lap up.. and who knows.. probably get inspired to take up arms against the state. You do know that’s a serious offence, right, Mr Mushtaq?

Aren’t we going around in circles here? I have told you and given you my reasons why I don’t respect someone. In return we are back to the same story, Bhagat Singh, Respect our leader, old freedom fighter – terrorist debate. I may see your point of view but you dont see mine? Same old argument, different names maybe perhaps even different people!

Why don’t you give a reply to my reasons and tell me why I should respect that person. Just because some consider someone a leader does that mean that everyone else must respect that same person? George Bush, was the most powerful leader on earth, how many respected him? I wonder if you respect LK Advani even though millions of other people do? You have your reasons and I may even probably agree with them! I am sure there are some people who look upto Kasab too. Does that mean the rest of us must also respect him? I could go on and on…..

As for returning his body, I have already said that I see no problem other than the fact that again some ‘leaders’ will use it to generate more trouble. But why must I be forced to respect someone that some others respect? Specially when I have given my reasons and there is no comment on them.

I also do not see people coming out in the streets with contracted stones and pelting them at the security forces day in and day out as peaceful. More so when we hear telephone intercepts of ‘leaders’ berating the instigators for not doing enough, more people should be hurt and what are they receiving money for? Of course you will say this is all propaganda, like everything else that you do not agree with. You are welcome to do so.

Minor correction: Ladakh and Jammu. Leh is the capital of Ladakh.
(Ganesh Prasad)

Ladakh itself enjoys autonomy within J&K, forget about india.
70% of the area of jammu province observe shutdown as solidarity with kashmiris. I fail to understand what you mean. i think you are talking about 10% of geographical area of j&K.
but it is indian democracy that has taught me that even if you boycot elections, and only 8% votes are cast, indian democracy still elects members to its assembly.

The best thing indians can do is to respectfully return the remains of our belved leader, we do expect this in near future because this land belongs to Gandhiji not Modi ji or Daraji.
