RIGHT OF SELF DETERMINATION

The solution of Kashmir imbroglio is accessible provided all parties are committed to resolve the dispute. Both New Delhi and Islamabad have been doing a lot apparently in this regard but their efforts have not yielded concrete results.
The fact is quite clear both the countries dont want to solve this issue...coz of various reasons ...if india goes for right of self determination they'll definitely loose the kashmir...while on the other hand pakistan shows some interest at times especially during General Musharafs time but they also fear of loosing their part of kashmir...though they have a slight edge over india as people may opt for pakistan but india is definitely gonna loose if the right of self determination takes place ....the changes in the peoples choice majorly from IOK have been disastour for pakistan ...till very recently people of indian held kashmir were keen on joining pakistan...but now most of the people want and independent kashmir....fearing this both countries are playing clearly unfair game with the poor kashmiris ....on one hand pakistan encourages terrorism and keeps on sending foreign mercenaries ..just to keep this battle going so that they dont have to loose their share of the cake...and india time and again is involved in state terrorism ...by killing innocents ....by fake encounters ....fake infiltration bids...indian army and indian agencies are majorly involved in IED blasts and grenade throwing into busy streets....this act is purely by indian army as they want to present the struggle of freedom as global terrorism to international community...
The last few years have witnessed a tremendous improvement in the relationship between the two nations. However, when Kashmir, which is a bone of contention between India and Pakistan, comes for discussion the atmosphere of hope turns into despair and both the countries are unable to come to a joint agreement. Both the nations must know that the good relations will last long only when the made-complex issue of Kashmir is resolved, otherwise such Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) will turn out to be fruitless only.

India and Pakistan are so allergic to each other that they are not going to accept any solution proposed by either of the two. Musharraf's proposals of 'demilitarization' and 'self-rule' was turned down by India without considering them worthy of giving a serious thought. In such a hostile and hopeless situation, the solution of Kashmir crises looks very much elusive. It is very pathetic on part of the Indian leaders not to come up with any proposal. If they don't like the proposal put forth by Musharraf why they don't then come up with their own proposal? This clearly shows that india has never been sincere to the issue....the recent uprising has clearly shaken india when their own media . their intellectual class. their civil society has started condemning the role of india and indian forces in kashmir ...fearing this india has blocked media ...put a ban of sms services ...and indefinite curfew....moreover they are picking innocents and taking them to borders and killing them and indian media reports proudly about "one more infiltration bid foiled" or the same indian army some how kills couple of its own soldiers and blames pakistan for LOC and cease fire violation.....this shameful act is only to divert the attention of people and international community and media so that the voice of peaceful of protests does not reach anywhere .....
Thses steps come at a time when noted and award winning journalists have raised a voice for the solution of kashmir issue ....
when booker prize winner arudhati roy ...writes "india needs azaadi from kashmir as much kashmir needs azaadi from india"
when vir sanghvi writes " its time to think unthinkable"
when sagarika ghose highlights the issue in her article " chaos theory in hindu cosmos"
rashmi sehgal writes " i am an india and i apologise to the people of kashmir"
and lots more
when a poll conducted by cnn ibn show taht 59% of common indians say kashmir should be given AZAADI..
when prem shankar jha and mr iyer speaks about kashmir should be soved...and most importantly omer abdullah chairman of national conference and member parliment ...who clearly knows he and his father ex cm farooq abdullah is a big zero without new delhi's support who clearly..says people of kashmir want azaadi and it should be debated.....

The history bears testimony to the fact that India and Pakistan can't reach any solution and the measures they take are only to make an impression in the international stage that Kashmir is being 'seriously' discussed. In fact, both the countries are merely killing time and the status quo will mean that Kashmir crises will continue unabated. and they will carry on with their part of cake....

Pragmatically, there seems to be only one way out to put an end to nearly 60 years of mayhem in Kashmir: free and impartial plebiscite under the aegis of the United Nation as per the UN Resolution, with the inclusion of a third option, Independence, just to update the 'old' Resolution. [ Though i am lil afraid here as UN is more of US than UN]Let the people of Kashmir decide about their future. The UN Resolution can peacefully and permanently solve the Kashmir dispute. After all, it was responsible to permanently solve the dispute in South Africa and Angola. Ironically, one of the so called largest democracies in the world, India, has refrained from granting the right of self-determination to the people of Kashmir, which happens to be their democratic right. [here i wud like to add this largest democracy is nothing but something like this: since the form of government in india is so called democratic its believed to be democratic...and largest prefix is only b'coz of its larger population]to know the facts about this largest demon-crazy ppl shud actually ask people of kashmir...north-east...naxal hit areas ...minorities in gujrat ..orrisa...meerut...uttar pardesh..mumbai...and moist hit areas....and further more this demon-crazy gets exposed when you come across hindu fanatic orgonisations like VHP-RSS-BAJRANG DAL-SHIV SENA and hundreds more ...they can destroy babri masjid and kill people..they can go on rampange and kill more than 3000 muslims in gujrat...they can set ablaze a christian missionary in orrisa along with his 2 kids ....and just the other day they burned a nun alive and set an orphange on fire in orrisa...and millions of similar incidents yet they wont be banned or labbeled terrorist orgonisations..and this sickular and demon-crazy country will award and reward these orgonisations for their social work..JAI SICKULARISM
The referendum should be held in two different phases:

Phase one: Independence or Union

Phase two: Union with India or Pakistan

(The second phase will come in effect only when the majority of the Kashmir population vote against Independence in the first phase).
Here are various measures which need to be taken to ensure free and impartial plebiscite:

i) Complete cease-fire: The two countries should announce the complete cease-fire along the Line of Control (LOC) to ensure that there is no untoward incident

ii) Demilitarization: After the cease-fire is ensured, India should call back its troops from Indian Administered Kashmir (IAK) and, simultaneously, Pakistan, too, should follow the suit by calling back its troops from Pakistan Adminis-tered Kashmir (PAK).

the borders with china can be collectively take care off for time being...

iii)The observers of the United Nation should remain in Kashmir and should keep a close vigil on the scheme of things, and when the situation becomes conducive, the observers should go for referendum. Since, people of Kashmir do not want the solution of Kashmir on ethnic or religious basis, therefore, the Pandits who left Kashmir in one of the most unfortunate incident in the history of Kashmir should be called back as an integral part of Kashmir's culture and identity, they too would decide the future of Kashmir along with their Muslim brethren....
after lengthy discussons on internet and person to person....lots of people have asked me questions like how will kashmir survive independently......... Kashmir can survive as an independent entity. If the people of Kashmir decide to be Independent, both India and Pakistan have to guarantee its Independence. For a start, Kashmir would not have its own currency but the currency of both India and Pakistan would be accepted as legal tender money. Kashmir, as an independent state, would have a free trade with both India and Pakistan and both the countries would invest in its economy. It is an admitted fact that only fruit and tourism industry, if properly managed, are enough to keep the economy of Kashmir afloat. however kashmir can further more develo its power sector,agriculture,floriculture,sericulture,horticultre,arts and crafts ..etc and further more education sector and medical sector once there is economic annd political stablity at its best...since the conditions and climate is very favourable for the last two sectors mentioned...
REGARDING the safety of borders both the countries can collectively take care of independent kashmir borders along with a newly formed kashmir army.till the we form our won strong army..since they've been crushing us for six decades now..this is the time when they can act as our elder brothers and it will help in reducing the level of haterd


However, the onus is on the United Nation to finally show its existence and play the role to resolve the Kashmir dispute. In the world of globalization no country would like to be engaged in war or constant dispute. Similar is the case with India and Pakistan.

Firstly, the joint decaration by the UN was to be put into effect in early '50. At that point of time, Nehru proposed to hold plebiscite, but Pakistani leadership was wary of returning troops. When Kashmiri delegates went to Lahore, they were told that the plebiscite can be possible only if they are assured of accession to Pakistan.

Mussharraf addresses the issue in an atmosphere where the tide is against India. Inobody answers my question. Why start a armed struggle? Does a state simply sit on it head when it happens?
