Somebody has rightly spelt out that,«Quality leaders are like magnets and they attract the good people”. Much has been pointed out and much has been written about the place which was once and still known as paradise on earth. This is the place where the mothers are rolling down their tears to mourn over their apple of their eyes (beloved sons). This is the place where fathers lift the coffins of their sons. World call it paradise on earth, the victims of this conflict call it battle field (Maidaan Jung). This is known as Kashmir and considered most military zone in the world. In fact, it is the bone of contention between two countries India and Pakistan. Since 1947 to till now both countries have fought devastating wars which led death and destruction only but could not achieve any significant breakthrough. Despite remaining nuclear flashpoint for both countries. It is also known as most dangerous place on earth as suggested by Bill Clinton. Due to this prevailing conflict in the entire South Asia people witnessed the gruesome violations, indiscriminate killings, raids, rounding up intellectuals, and what not!The iron fist and oppressive policies of New Delhi vis a vis Kashmir pushing towards the wall. Pakistan which is the primary party of the dispute should close down it’s funding to the subversive elements Gun culture is the major bolt on the peaceful resistance of Kashmir. Let New Delhi accept this ground reality that your oppressive and repressive moves will create more tensions in the region. The recent dreadful suicide attack at Lethpora Pulwama is the eye opener for the both countries.
Violence is not the way to deal with problem. Killing is killing and it should be condemned by every sections of society. After this attack the PM of India has made revengeful remark that “they have made a mistake, they will have to pay a price for it’’.It reflects that Delhi believes on tit for strategy for this long standing dispute. The former chief of RAW AS Dulat has rightly remarked that in his book Kashmir under the Vajpayee years “The problem with Delhi has been that it sees everything in black and white, whereas Kashmiris favorite color is grey’’.This conflict has taken infinite lives of humans we don’t see further bloodsheds, carnages and growing violence. For the permanent settlement of Kashmir dispute it needs vibrant and charismatic leadership like the founder of Islamic revolution imam Khomeini who taught lesson to world that, how oppression could be resisted, and oppressors could be dethroned. He did not use tanks, Guns, way of suicide bombing. When he was the leading his resistance against Phalvi regime his ground strategy was transparent and clear. There was a great bond of relationship between Iranian youths and imam Khomeini this is what we observed when he was exile in Paris.
Violence is not the way to deal with problem. Killing is killing and it should be condemned by every sections of society. After this attack the PM of India has made revengeful remark that “they have made a mistake, they will have to pay a price for it’’.
Let Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) learn exemplary lesson from the Islamic revolution of Iran which had inspired the number of revolutionary movements across globe. Let JRL wake up to see how Iranians managed to topple world’s most military might which was being categorically supported by the super powers of that time. Let JRL follow the complete roadmap of imam Khomeini (R.A) if not, then try to execute the plans the like him. Kashmiris not only need your condemnation statements. They need leadership on ground not guns. So in conclusion let’s both India and Pakistan step forward to avoid border tensions, military confrontation, avoid threatening with each other. Its time to say enough is enough, unless India and Pakistan come close to Kashmir problem will remain. It’s imperative that neighbor countries learn to trust One another, that is only the way to safeguard their Interest as well as the oppressed Kashmiris who became the victim of this unlimited oppression. Let India and Pakistan initiate tri party meaning dialogue over it and make a dramatic turn in the history of the world. This would be the welcoming move and will example for the centuries to come over.
