Acknowledged Letter From Prime Minister of New Zealand Regarding July 2016 Protests

(Letter Also Forwarded To UN General Secretary's Office and Offices of the Respected Canadian and Australian Prime Ministers.)To,Parliament Buildings Private Bag 18041 Wellington 6160 New ZealandRespected Prime Minister of New Zealand, Mr. John Key, It was a positive affirmation from Ban Ki Moon in a recent press release that the security forces dealing with the protestors in Kashmir should involve restraint. But these are literal concerns. Kashmiri people want practical concerns from his honourable chair and responsible countries like New Zealand should also condemn the violence that is happening. Infact, there has been a tradition of Oceania scholarship on Kashmir represented by Australian scholars like Sir Owen Dixon, Richard Snedden, and Major William Alan Reid. Indian Army have used force as intimation for direct murder by the use of pellet guns once again. India has violated ‘Basic Principles On The Use Of Force And Firearms By Law' of the UN Charter during the July 2016…

Kashmir's New Surge of Violence

After the massive protests in 2010 and over two lakh people attending a militant’s funeral in 2016 has once again proved to the world that Kashmiri people have sacrosanct desires of an independent homeland.
The desire of freedom is torched and it is once again resonating in the hearts of Kashmiri people. But lives are also been lost. Pallbearers in Kashmir have been most active lately. 
But even after every cyclical protest happened in Kashmir, the biased Indian media or its brainwashed people can't evolve their morality over the political problem. 

Curfews cannot get peace nor Kashmir problem is an employment problem. The major grievance of the protestors is the lack of respect of human rights in the past and also about their political demands that haven’t echoed in the chambers of Indian politicians, who very conservatively take it as an internal security problem and less of an international political problem. But by no means does India get the right to injure common people by usi…

Kashmir That Is Today

The reason why the problem of Kashmir dispute cannot be resolved by political leaders is not only due to the lack of commitment but also due to lack of purpose. We live in times when Indian military establishment has been given a privilege and is been tamed by the forces of nationalism, an entity that wants to entail its dogma. An irony indeed. 


The infiltration has been seen by the army as a cat and mouse game, which they seem to enjoy, as they have the license to launch offensives on the mandate of the Indian state. Their license to kill is a scourge for many common people who deserve to live a life in a civil way. It is a known fact that Indian military doesn’t have the trust in their political leaders and in their international diplomacy. 
For Kashmir a military strategy, precisely, dictatorship is condusive. Even if peace is given a chance, in reality, nobody can stop militancy. Its seeds are sown, they are there and they will remain there, due to desperation and failure of resolut…

Scanning The Dixon Plan

Sir Owen Dixon was a judge from the Australian High Court, whose meticulous report drafted to UN in 1950 received a commendation for the obstinacy of his analysis of the Kashmir resolution from the Security Council. He is regarded as an Australian scholar of impeccable credentials. 

Infact Major William Alan Reid, who was an observer with the U.N Military Observers Group in  Kashmir (UNMOGIP) got inspired by his work for his B.A Honours thesis titled “Sir Owen Dixons Mediation of the Kashmir Dispute” (July 2000) for which the writer is greatly indebted.  Reid is currently working on the doctoral thesis for the same subject. He has even consulted his notes, some of his fifty interviews, his diary and personal correspondence as well as the Australian archives, besides other published works.  To add more facts, there has been a tradition of Australian scholarship on India represented by Professors like Robin J Moore, Ian Coplan and B. Millar to name a few.

Dilemma Over Kashmiri Politics

Having read many authors and being analysing the taunt history of Kashmir for a while, I often get crude gut feelings. I feel agitated of not having faith in the regional electoral system and in the idea of India.


Many Kashmiri people feel reluctant to call themselves patriotic Indians, even though there have been attempts by pro- Indian parties and its leaders to win our hearts. The question which Indian leaders should ask themselves is why aren't many Kashmiri people passionate Indian nationalists? Isn't Kashmir a dispute which is recognised world over? Why are our concerns only sought over by the Indian law, by convictions of ideological treacheries to the Indian nation.


The case of Ireland and the recent Scotland referandum have been effective exercises for perceiving the political and ethnic realities in these countries.  But in our case there have been such blatant naiveties in the lack of good judgement for emendations of our constitutional machinery by our local politici…
