This has happened in the past. Many people have done this. You make someone famous, give them the name, the fame and then comes the misuse. Probably that’s what Arundhati Roy, Indian novelist, writer and activist did when she remarked “India needs Azadi from Kashmir as much as Kashmir needs Azadi from India“. As a true Indian I condemn those words and her thoughts. From whom do you want Kashmir to be freed from? From the people of India, who have every inch of Kashmir in their hearts and cry whenever there is a problem in Kashmir. Today Kashmir is going through hell and I condemn bad politics for this. At this time, when activist like you should be asking for peace but you went straight ahead and made a statement that has hurt millions of Indians. Freedom of Speech does not allow you to say whatever you want (especially when it hurts the sentiments of the people of India) and there is a line you should never cross.
Even I want Azadi, but from bad politics, corruptions, terror attacks, terrorists. We need to fight that now. The problem of the Kashmiri people is as bad as every citizen in India. We have to go through hell everyday, bomb blasts everyday, corruption at every stage, rising price, there are issues every day. Yes, Kashmir issue has been dragged, people have suffered and we will try and do everything through our blog. Anyways, back to Arundhati Roy’s comment, we again condemn such statements and hope she bears some kind of social responsibilities in India before making such speeches. What if her statement sparks protests all over India? And we all know how people can play politics with this statement of yours and create big ISSUE!
We again request the Indian Government to please pledge that they will resolve the Kashmir issue by ensuring fair dialogues between all the parties concerned and come to some conclusion which is goes for the RIGHTS of Kashmiri people. However, let this message go loud and clear… Kashmir will be integral part of India and not a single millimeter of land will given to anyone. Hope this message is echoed across the border as well!
