HOW can one imagine living in a curfew for years? It has been well over a year since India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir turned into world’s largest jail.
Narendra Modi, who can aptly be considered the ‘Indian Hitler’, has sparked new devilish spirit, injecting Hindutva into the blood of his blindly arrogant and violent followers, who now want ‘white brides’ from Kashmir.
The recent talk of ‘burying the past and moving forward’ did indicate Pakistan’s clear peaceful intentions, but this may not be effective in dealing with a neighbour like India. ‘No trade with India’ is a much better policy. The government of India must be asked in clear terms to set things right in occupied Kashmir. Or, else, we would soon be observing another anniversary of the lockdown.
