:eh:

Can Zionists stop making this issue about Israel. Sure, there are parallels with India's occupation and Israel's occupation, but this topic is pretty specific and unrelated to Israel (as far as we know). There are plenty of threads about Palestine so if you want to talk about that, go there. In fact, I'll be so kind and boost some, give me a few minutes...

Kashmir: India’s Move and Pakistan’s Secrets

Kashmir: India’s Move and Pakistan’s Secrets


As India moved on to enforce its authority in Jammu and Kashmir amid scepticism from different quarters, once again we find that Pakistan, which was caught by surprise, has misinformed the international community on the sensitive issue of abolition of Article 370.

As we have said before that it was indeed a bold move by bold Prime Minister Narendra Modi as we knew that Pakistan was once again distorting the provisions on Jammu and Kashmir. In reality, Pakistan divided Kashmir and established control over it in 1949.
Let us see on what grounds neighbouring India abolished Article 370 of its constitution, which Pakistan claims was a “gross violation of the 1948 United Nations Security Council Resolution, in particular UNSCR38/1948.”

“Article 370 of the Indian Constitution is a matter that relates solely to the citizens of India and it was adopted by the Constituent Assembly on 26 November 1949. Any change or modification thus remains the sole prerogative of the Republic of India.”

“UNSC Resolution No 38/1948 pre-dates the promulgation of the Constitution of India by more than 24 months and therefore not germane to the said resolution.”

Thus, Modi’s surprise move on Kashmir was within the rights of the Indian government, of course with due respect to the people of the beautiful valley who either are wrongly worried about their future.

On the other hand, Pakistan, which has said that it would not go to war with India over the abolition of Article 370, has downgraded its relations with India and have been fanning religious lines to spark violence in Kashmir.

The world powers have reacted cautiously with words which indicated that they agreed it was indeed an “internal matter” of India and for the betterment of the people of Kashmir. True everyone would not agree as each individual has his own opinion. Some say they have lost their “independent character;” some say they would become a minority with outsiders purchasing land and so forth, but why some are drumming up the religious lines has been one question we might look into as it has the potential to turn the situation volatile.
People of all faiths across India have been living together for ages and why not in Muslim-majority Jammu and Kashmir or Buddhist-majority Ladakh if the abolition of Article 370 could turn around their decades-old fate? Muslim-majority Bangladesh too is a land of communal harmony and as Bangladeshis we take pride of respecting different faiths.

Some political observers were unhappy on two grounds --- one, they claimed it was anti-constitutional and two, why “punish” Kashmiris for acts carried out by Pakistan.

The constitutional issue has already been explained at the very outset of this piece, but why call it a “punishment” for Kashmiris? India and Pakistan has fought three wars so far, two of them were over Kashmir and one on Bangladesh in 1971.

The latest attacks starting from Kargil and the killing of 40 Indian soldiers by Pakistani elements, needed a reply as Islamabad simply enjoyed the game by repeated instigation as if saying “I challenge you.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi sent in his fighter jets deep inside Pakistan in retaliation destroying militant camps along with more than 150 militants as per media reports. That was a matter of pride for Indians and all those who stood for rights.

Abolition of Article 370 was the boldest reply to Pakistan which patronises militants and exports such wrongful attackers to destabilise not only India, but also Bangladesh.

Looking at the wrongs done by Pakistan in its part of Kashmir called “Azad Kashmir” one may be amazed as to how Islamabad kept its activities secret over the years in that part of the Asian heaven.

Pakistan divided its part of the valley into “Azad Jammu and Kashmir” and the “Federally Administered Norther Area” (FANA) in 1949 and that was followed by the creation of an “Advisory Council” for the FANA in 1969.

In 1994, the council was converted to “Northern Areas Council” through its Legal Framework Order. It was again renamed in 1999 as the “Northern Areas Legislative Council” and replaced again in 2009 by the Gilgit-Balistan Empowerment and Self-Governance Order in 2009 thus creating “Legislative Assembly” and a “Gilgit-Baltistan Council.”

Pakistan secured its position further in 2018 with powers to overrule any law passed by the assembly or the council by the prime minister and gave the president the authority to amend the Gilgit-Baltistan Order 2018 instead of the earlier Legislative Assembly.

One may recall the brutality of the Pakistani army, which unleashed the worst genocide in Bangladesh in 1971 to silence Bengalis fighting for their rights, using merciless tactics and tanks to silence the people of Gilgit-Baltistan.

Pakistan is apparently trying to foment bloodshed in Jammu and Kashmir by instigating some sections on religious lines and we hope Modi would deal with those issues with a tough hand.

We believe this move would be able to prove the critics wrong and usher in a “new period,” as Modi said in his national hook-up, not only for the people of Jammu and Kashmir, but for India, Bangladesh and South Asia.

RAB chief warns against ‘conspiracy’ centring Kashmir

Senior Correspondent, bdnews24.com

The chief of Bangladesh’s elite police unit RAB has warned against “conspiracy” capitalising on tensions over India’s decision to scrap special constitutional status of Jammu and Kashmir state.

“Kashmir is an internal issue of India. We don’t have anything to comment on its internal affairs,” Benazir Ahmed told the media in Dhaka on Friday.

“We hope any mentally sound person will not try to muddy the water over India’s internal affairs or Kashmir. Legal actions will be taken if someone tries to do so,” the Rapid Action Battalion director general said.

World leaders have urged calm as Pakistan has suspended trade ties with India, expelled the Indian high commissioner and cut off rail links with its arch-rival in protest against the latest move of India over Kashmir.

Different groups in Bangladesh, including hardline Muslims, have also organised street protests against India’s decision on Kashmir.

“There aren’t many ultra-Islamists in Bangladesh and they are under our watch 24 hours a day,” RAB chief Benazir said.

He briefed the media about security measures taken for the Eid-ul-Azha and National Mourning Day.

RAB personnel were working to stop mugging and other crimes at the Eid cattle markets, he said.

India is a democracy.
That BJP is in power is the result of elections.
The world is going through a populist phase now, with Trump, Brexit, BJP, Salvini and so on.
All of those phenomena came about through elections.

Pakistan's president has quite rightly referred to Modi as being a fascist .
The BJP/RSS has had a historic connection to Nazi Germany , and continues to act in a fanatical extremist fashion .
,
I feel that India's actions in Jammu Kashmir is reminiscent of the Intolerable Acts , which provoked the Revolutionary War of Independence in my country .

None of what you posted contradicts what I said earlier: Modi got elected democratically, by a landslide.
I add that whatever negative one can say about India, Pakistan is ten thousand times worse. As if people do not get lynched in Pakistan, especially non-Muslims ?

Pakistan is extremely hypocritical when it comes to Kashmir.
An independent Kashmir does not feature anywhere in Pakistan's allegations. They would for instance not tolerate for a second an anti-Pakistan movement in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

Indian-administered Kashmir will never come under Pakistan rule, ever. The sooner this fact sinks in, the sooner some accommodation can be found.

So?
A few Pakistanis and Pakistani-Americans shouting in front of a statue.
Who gives a fuck ?
Indian-administered Kashmir will be part of India forever and the Buddhists in Ladakh are safe thank god.

Hitler , an inspiration for the BJP /RSS , was also elected by a landslide . https://m.dw.com/en/fact-or-fiction-adolf-hitler-won-an-election-in-1932/a-18680673 And I feel that your assertion that Kashmir cannot be independent , as long as Pakistan retains Azad Kashmir , would be like claiming that the " Bear Flag Revolt " , which resulted in the California Republic , was unsuccessful in achieving California's independence from Mexico , given that Mexico still possesses Baja California . And your other contention , that lynchings take place in Pakistan as well , it quite literally a " whatabourism" .

I don't think they'd see it that way. As they see it there's nothing wrong with killing, imprisoning, torturing, stealing from, raping, child raping or even genociding Muslims. Its just that only Muslims have the right to do these things to other Muslims.

I think its the same as Adolph Hitler's complaints about human rights abuses of ethnic Germans in Poland and the Sudetenland. Adolph was never shy about killing, torturing or imprisoning ethnic Germans, its just he thought that only ethic German nationalists had that right to do it.
