The current Kashmir imbroglio is a sad saga of weak half-hearted efforts by both State and the Centre administration to reduce anger ,pain ,misery and trepidation of Kashmiris at large.
The youth in Kashmir is being radicalised and fuelled to create unrest to foment war against India at the behest of the Separators and the Neighbour Enemy Country Pakistan.
The situation as of now is of no return to normalcy.
The Separators are successful in pushing Kashmiri youth to fight the forces by attacking them with impunity.
The increased activity on the side of Pakistan LOC is
evident from the sharp rise in number of LOC ceasefire violations.
There are nearly 60 violations till middle of April in current year (2017) against 228 ( 2016) , 152 (2015) 153(2014) 89 (2013) and 93(2012)as reported by Indian Express (April29th2017).
The Indian forces are fighting to their finish to foil the attempts of militants and thus have killed nearly 40 militants till date ,as reported by Indian Express.
Pakistan in close association with Separators has managed to keep the Kashmir conflict ticking thus pushing the majority of peace loving Kashmiris to the state of mute spectators with no courage to raise their voice against the atrocities of the militants.
The Paid Stone Peltors have been put into operation of pitching battles with Indian forces on one pretext or other to perpetuate the unstable conditions.
The State Govt under Mehbooba Mufti should pull her socks to avert the situation before it goes out of its reach.
The Center Govt under the able stewardship of Prime Minister Modi should understand the grim situation and take effective steps to bring normalcy in Kashmir .
The following actions could be thought of
Firstly all political parties should be taken into confidence to deal with impasse as one single unit.
It needs to be stressed that all parties to speak in one language so far Kashmir is concerned.
The disparate voices should not be aired.
Secondly People to People contacts established in the valley.
India’s view point to be conveyed aggressively at all stages. The educated youth to be engaged in framing policy making for progress of the state in close coordination of National Schemes. All such schemes to be extended to the state .
Thirdly weaning away the youth from radicalisation path to mainstream by engaging in offering economic sops like jobs ,business opportunities, higher education etc with sincerity .
This needs to be pursued with deft of purpose and gainful results.
Fourthly All graduates to be offered with jobs . Should be done with alacrity and on priority .
All efforts should be made to make the people of Kashmir understand that India stands for them and India is the country they belong to.
It is war of winning hearts and minds. A tedious proposition but surely achievable and a permanent one .
Finally the Separators should be isolated completely as they are hellbent on converting Kashmir into a blood bath so that they hamper any solution to Kashmir and Kashmiris.
All financial or nonfinancial assistance if any to be withdrawn with immediate effect if not done so far.
Some of our friends profess for Militarized Methods without understanding its perilous implications.
War brings untold misery and the conflict brutalizes both civilian and the soldier.
Since 1988 thousands of soldiers and civilians have died leaving the families to fend for themselves.
We should admit The state Govts have been pursuing on flawed policies for years on resulting in the alienation of Kashmiris.
Let us look inwards and try to set the things right by clicking on the right buttons to arrest the deterioration permanently looking through the realistic human mirror rather than a blurred biased one.
