After 1945, the face of Indian State of J&K was allowed to be painted by some to the benefit of external and internal disruptive elements. Not only this, questions like delayed accession of Indian State of Jammu and Kashmir, ‘conditional’ accession, Article 370 of Constitution of India, dual ‘citizenship’ for subjects of Jammu & Kashmir and ‘commitments’ made with Kashmiries have not been adequately addressed even by Government of India for six decades. Even Art-370 of Constitution of India has been pushed into unfair controversies. Affairs concerning the Indian state of J&K have been the victim of mishandling. Local J&K political leadership has been resting her stakes more only on local governance.
In 1950s the school children in J&K were told stories about one Maqbool Sherwani (a 19 yr youth who stood against ‘Pakistani’ invaders in October 1947) where as in 2014 one would hear more of Maqbool Bhat (founder of JKLF who was sentenced to death in 1968, who allegedly also masterminded hijacking of Indian aeroplane in 1971 to Lahore) who was hanged in Tihar Jail on 11th February 1984.
All these years focus has remained more on Kashmir Valley only (just 10% of whole area), still common man there has been no less a sufferer, one would ask ‘Why’?
