Kashmir has never been part of India: Arundhati Roy

We give below a very relevant piece of news in connection with Arundhati Roy and her stand on Kashmir. Our organization was always of the opinion that Kashmir has been forcibly acquired by India and the people’s revolt there is justifiable. We have been writing articles and booklets for the last two decades elaborating the history of the Kashmiri people. The situation has come to such a state that immediate step has to be taken to free the people of Kashmir. [ref to appeal in www.srai.org dated 19 September, 2010] .About a hundred thousand people have been killed by army and hundreds are still missing in this small valley with a population of about 70 lakhs. If we take the stock from the year 1953, more than 2 lakh inhabitants of the Kashmir valley have been killed or are simply erased by the Indian army. Is this a free country? Can we still call Kashmir a part of our Nation?

We are with Arundhati Roy and demand justice for the common people of Kashmir.

THE AYODHYA VERDICT

By Sumitra Padmanabhan Yes, we could avoid another communal riot. Disregarding all historical and archeological truths we stooped to honor the ‘faith and sentiment of the majority’. Who did this? The answer is — the honorable court. This farce will remain as a milestone in the history of India’s regression; at least that is what […]
