Article 370 gave corruption and cruelty only: Kashmir made slaves of us Dogras and Jammu. This tyranny had to end
Kashmir's leaders ruined their region with militancy, were cruelly indifferent to Ladakh and totally oppressive to Jammu. It's time for that to change and us Dogras to regain our voice.
On this day in 1931, Kashmir saw a revolt against the Dogra royals and Hindus. The day has been spun to represent Martyrs Day, commemorating Muslims storming a prison, forgetting the truth.
Many Kashmiris have Pakistani wives who attained state subject rights upon marriage, as did their children. But J&K women who married non state people lost all their rights.
Pakistan claims concern and care for the people of Kashmir. Then why is it so afraid to even hear what the Dogras and KPs have to tell it?
Pulwama deaths are utterly tragic. But alongside civilians, an army jawan was also killed. Has he been forgotten already?
Kashmir has a long history of violence sparked by clashes between civilians and armed forces during encounters. To stop this nightmare, we must heed this history. Otherwise, we will simply keep repeating it.
Dogras practise the timeless concepts of equality and respect for their women folk.
