Amarnath Row: Part II

Now it is 200 acre of land, in future it may be whole of Kashmir. If we do not uproot this, the next generation may have to loose the symmetry in drawing map of India.
Once again I am writing on recent Amarnath Row. If you are tracking the news about this you see the worst of its kind in Indian politics. It is now the turn of BJP and its supporting groups who now in the name Shiva became open life threats in Jammu and Kashmir. Without trying to find out the solution to the provoked unwanted controversy of land issue which now turned as matter of integrity, political parties are just playing with lives of people of J & K and disturbing communal harmony in rest of nation.
I totally agree to the demands of the Sangharsh Samiti which is now protesting for the rights of Shrine board. The land of 200 acre should be transferred to the Shrine Board for 2 months in a year in order and facilitate hygiene and safe yatra to all pilgrims of our nation. There is no point in oppose of that. And it was the decision of the State government itself based on demands of Shrine board over 7-8 years. Of course the not concerned state government has taken this decision when more than 250 pilgrims died on the toughest road to Amarnath. The land does not belong to any private organisation or person. And there was no legal problem with the transfer as State Government has the power to do so. The new route from this land is also safer than the previous.
But the separatists behind the stage provoked the Kashmiri Muslims in the name of Allah to the extent of making government to fall. This has shown the whole nation about the feelings of Kashmiri Muslims who think they are independent of India and not an inch of land will be given to the nation’s people. PDP of whose ministers were passed the Bill of Transfer of land has chosen to escape rather than explaining the people about the intension.
Next in the name Shiva the common public were made to feel fear from uncivilised keepers of Hindu Culture. Then nationwide protest started against the denying of land to Shrine Board. Literally Kashmir has been isolated from rest of nation over a month by the people who shout about integrity. People there are not getting even basic needs like vegetables, foods, medicines etc. Jammu Shrinagar Highway is been blocked. Train tracks were removed. More than a month curfew, bandh has made Heaven on earth as Hell. Does lord Shiva want this?
We are living in a democratic nation. Kashmir not only belongs to Kashmiris but also to Bharatha also. It is unfortunate that without any reason we have article 370 in our constitution which denies any outsiders to own a land on Kashmir. But it does not to be understood by Kashmiris that Kashmir is independent from India. The parties like PDP should be banned for indirectly supporting such thought and helping separatists. By knowing the protests from the Kashmiris against land transfer and the statements of Kashmiri politicians, leaders regarding this it seem the thought of feeling independent is deeply in their mind. I never heard a Kashmiri saying to give the land to Shrine Board. This is really a threat to nation integrity. It is now the central government to take the tough decision to transfer the land to the Shrine Board as per previously decided by the state government. This will also discourage those who feel Kashmir is independent.
But for this to convey to the central government there is no need of inhuman threatening activities all over the nation. Being a top opposition party and termed as idealistic party the acts which BJP is supporting and doing in view of this issue is really condemning. Of course in the Sangharsh Samiti there are people of other parties also. But what all that they are doing is just one more threat to nation integrity. There is no major difference between those who protest against the land transfer and for land transfer. All are creating trouble the nation people. When the aim of protest is right and legal and is a matter of nation integrity then why to use demon powers which is used for wrong purpose? Let gather public opinion on this and all parties discuss on this (which should have done before) and by the conclusions of these let legal, constitutional changes made to solve the issue. Our political development should happen like this.
I am afraid whether the minority vote bank oriented UPA will take such tough decision of transferring land to Shrine board in order to solve the issue rightly and effectively. Because of, last week itself the ban on SIMI was lifted due to insufficient and ineffective evidence against it. Thanks to Supreme Court which stayed this order. Till now I never heard a strong statement coming from any of Congress persons, Ministers in central Government against the recent terrorists attack except mud slugging on State government.
But we can force the government to take right decision as it had taken in case of Nuclear Deal. For that we have to create public discussion on this issue. We have to involve with this, So that the government will be forced to take a step which will keep our nation integrity. We can not keep quite on this issue. It may reach to the extent of affecting our daily life also as it is effecting people of our nation in Kashmir. Now it is 200 acre of land, in future it may be whole of Kashmir. If we do not uproot this, the next generation may have to loose the symmetry in drawing map of India. So share your ideas. Come we will free the Bharatha from such demons on the 61st Independence Day.
