🇮🇳 How are Kashmiris coping under lockdown? | The Stream

Millions of people in Indian-administered Kashmir are living under curfew after the central government revoked an article of the constitution guaranteeing the state semi-autonomy. Thousands of troops have been sent to the Muslim-majority region to enforce government control, while telephone lines and internet connections have been blocked. Hundreds of people, from Kashmiri rights activists to professors and business leaders, have been detained by Indian authorities.

A day after Kashmir’s special status was removed on August 5, India’s parliament moved swiftly to pass The Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill. The new act downgraded Jammu and Kashmir from a state to a union territory, while also separating the Ladakh region as another union territory. The sweeping changes in Kashmir come three months after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won a general election in which they pledged to revoke Kashmir’s special status. But while prime minister Narendra Modi says the changes will herald a “new era” of growth in Kashmir, residents are angry that they have no voice as their rights are removed. Neighbouring Pakistan is also incensed at the move and has downgraded diplomatic and trade ties with India.

What lies in store for the people of Kashmir amid the ongoing lockdown? Join the conversation.

  1. Modi has slapped the face and spirit of United nations, the current cenario is all because of UN, as UN promised the kashmiris the right of self detemination -which this human resource institution has forgotten for the last 70 years. shame on you UN

  2. With the arrival of Supreme Court latest Order on Kashmir issue, one can feel that things are back to the square one. The hasty step taken in the turbulent background has surely precipitated the situation. Suddenly holocaust has arisen so much so that both the countries have started talking about the nuclear war. And when you talk about waging the nuclear war then the other neighboring are equally involved in this. For how long this will remain to exit bilateral issue. The tumultuous background did not this require this hasty step in this manner. However, the Supreme Court’s appropriate handling of this sensitive issue may assuage or tone down the nuclear or hot tone which has erupted so suddenly. It is good to see that an opportunity has again emerged to retrieved the ugly situation.

  3. Since 1947 ad. Then bloodshed begun in Kashmir. How much blood with the UN Intervene on Kashmir? How many more people will killed if the UN send the peacekeepers? When Will India vs Pakistan conflict overs Kashmir? Why not listen to what the people of Kashmir want? Why not hold referendum in Kashmir? Will the people of Kashmir be with India, with Pakistan or as a separate independent state? These are the decisions that will be taken. This i's democracy and civilization. Land grabbing Kashmir is today a dead cremation ground for human rights violations.

  5. Michael H. Hart of USA who wrote "The 100 most influential persons in history" and placed Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) as number one, on the top of the list

    "My choice of Muhammad to lead the best of the world's most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels.
    His complete biography has been authenticated and circulated amongst scholars around the world starting while he was still alive and continuing up until today. One of the first examples we quote from is from the Encyclopedia Britannica, as it confirms:

    (Regarding Muhammad) "… a mass of detail in the early sources shows that he was an honest and upright man who had gained the respect and loyalty of others who were likewise honest and upright men." [Vol. 12]
    Reverend R. Bosworth-Smith wrote in "Mohammed & Mohammedanism" in 1946:

    "Head of the state as well as the Church, he was Caesar and Pope in one; but, he was pope without the pope's claims, and Caesar without the legions of Caesar, without a standing army, without a bodyguard, without a palace, without a fixed revenue. If ever any man had the right to say that he ruled by a Right Divine, it was Mohammad, for he had all the power without instruments and without its support. He cared not for dressing of power. The simplicity of his private life was in keeping with his public life."
    George Bernard Shaw:

    "I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving the problems in a way that would bring the much needed peace and happiness. Europe is beginning to be enamored of the creed of Muhammad. In the next century it may go further in recognizing the utility of that creed in solving its problems." (A Collection of writing of some of the eminent scholars, 1935).
    Lamartine's tribute to the Prophet:

    "If greatness of purpose, smallness of means and astounding results are the three criteria of human genius, who could claim to compare any great man in modern history with Muhammad?" (Histoire de la Turquie, 1855).

    "I wanted to know the best of one who holds today undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind… I became more than convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet, the scrupulous regard for his pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle. When I closed the 2nd volume (of the Prophet's biography), I was sorry there was not more for me to read of the great life."
    English author Thomas Carlyle in his 'Heroes and Hero Worship', was simply amazed:

    "How one man single handedly, could weld warring tribes and wandering Bedouins into a most powerful and civilized nation in less than two decades."
    EWolfgang Goethe, perhaps the greatest European poet ever, wrote about Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. He said:

    "He is a prophet and not a poet and therefore his Quran is to be seen as Divine Law and not as a book of a human being, made for education or entertainment." [Noten und Abhandlungen zum Weststlichen Dvan, WA I, 7, 32]

    Muhammad, peace be upon him, was nothing more or less than a human being, but he was a man with a noble mission, which was to unite humanity on the worship of ONE and ONLY ONE GOD and to teach them the way to honest and upright living based on the commands of God. He always described himself as, 'A Servant and Messenger of God' and so indeed every action of his proclaimed to be.
