Remember Me

We sit in our comfortable homes and get all intellectual about what is happening in Kashmir. The moment a bomb explodes in our hometown's market or any other place of importance, we panic and start cursing the government for not doing anything.
Friends, have you ever realized how difficult it for the Indian Armed Forces to protect our borders as well as fight with the enemies within the border. I have many friends in the army. One of them guarded the borders 80km from town of Drass where even helicopters cannot reach. I went to Drass in the month of June and it was so bloody cold that my fingers almost fell off. Add another 8000-10000 feet to Drass and you reach the high points where are soldiers are posted. To know about the hardships that our soldiers face and to actually realize that and feel it are two different things.
I urge you! My friends! I urge you to speak up. I urge you to break your silence and support our soldiers in this time of need. I urge you to attack those who pass on derogatory messages against our soldiers. I urge you to speak for our country, our motherland, India.
The pluralism in India is its beauty. But if that is misused to tarnish the sacrifices made by our patriots who don't even ask anything in return cannot be justified. For a few TRPs, for a misguided truth, for the want of money, many Indian media houses and individuals have started tarnishing the image of our soldiers and have even resorted to spreading false propaganda.
Let us stand with our soldiers in Kashmir. Remember they sacrifice a lot so that we can sleep in peace. I wonder if a soldier is allowed to live a civilian life for 5 years before returning to his post, I am sure he would either leave his job or give two hoots about saving we double standard Indians.
The meager salary that they receive is not enough for the service they provide. Thus, don't pass on the judgement that it is their job to protect us. They do it out of passion, out of love for their motherland, out of love for their fellow citizens. I know they are fools. Fools for saving we hypocrites who can't even praise them in the time of their need, who can't even stand in solidarity with them, who can't even shed a tear when they die and instead get busy watching cricket matches.
Speak up in this time of need. Stand in solidarity with our soldiers posted in Jammu and Kashmir; for now, they are not only fighting the enemy across the border, but also a growing breed of white collar ones within the country.
Let us speak up. Let us speak up my dear friends. Let us speak. Aah! The least we can do is speak for them.

There is an economic side to all this kashmir valley protest and all. There are primarily seven sections in Kashmir's social structure. There are sunni,shiya,bakarwaal,gujjar,gadriya,sikh and some kashmiri pandit.Only sunnis who are rich and have a lot of land holdings create all the tension and all this pakistan hoopla while other groups are very very much inclined towards India.
Now whenever Abdullah family is out of power, protests against the Indian govt. starts in the family. And let me tell you, Omar is a sunni scion.
So why have protests intensified in the recent past? The answer is the election of Narendra Modi and the BJP. BJP is adamant towards removing article 370 from the state as it promotes social inequality and creates more or less an ossified social and economic structure in the state. Article 370 is adamant towards forbidding investment in the state from out of state player as it does not let them have land ownership. Which investor would invest in the state without any ownership entitlement.
So you, see. These protests will go on. It will destabilize the Mufti and BJP govt. in the state. It will hinder all development activities in the state that can promote social equality. And more so, these protest will create an environment for the return of Omar Abdullah to power.
This is high time that we fight or the ordinary Kashmiri's rights. I have been there and they are lovely people. Sometimes you do get the sense that they are naive and can be easily manipulated by the richer sects of Kashmir but all together they are very lovely people.
These protests are a call for an immediate removal of article 370 in the state and blitzkrieg against every separatist leader and Pakistan sympathizer in the state. Under the garb of human rights and international support they manipulated and prospered a lot. Now is the time to put an end to all this drama.
