  • The Wire's Siddharth Varadarajan travelled to Srinagar to report on how ordinary people in Kashmir have responded to the scrapping of Article 370 and the end of statehood for J&K. Only two of the dozens of men and women he spoke to agreed to be filmed; the rest said they feared being victimised for speaking out.

    kurbani ki baat karte ho ,hurriyat ka sath dete ho ,hinsa ki baat karte ho ,phir jab hum shanti ki baat karte hai to phir sanvidhan ke purane sare gale panno ko chingari dene ki kosis karte ho,gandi kattar soch ka jahar nikalo ,ummed ka daman apnalo ,warna parivartan to hona hi hai jitni jaldi samajh lo to utni hi tarakki karwa lo.

          55th day of lockdown, curfew. No access to food supllies, medicines. Internet and mobile services blockade. Is this what BJP devolpment means.
          With 900,000 troops with special power acts , indian adminstration makes Jammu and Kashmir makes most densly militrize zone in world. Worst human right voilation was done by indian army.
          Kashmiri public fully reject indian illegal occupation of BJP policies with RSS ideolgy of racism.

Modi has murdered democracy and India will see long time economic disaster because Kashmir will take lot of Military expenditure. Doors are open for Afghan type millitancy and its more apt to say Kashmiri youth doesnt fear death which is clear from stone pelting where unarmed youth is ready to raise againest military occupation.

Are they keenly intersted to merge with PAK. We can understand the state of mind of Kashmiris, but dont they want any development there for the betterment of the people of kashmir. Hope for a shining morning. Regards

                                                                                          Economic progress is the only way forward for Kashmiris. We need to take the youth off the streets and expend their energies on employment and improving their standard of living along with their families. But doing this will be a hard task as Mullas would be directly opposed to power dilution and will tell the youth to stay away from employment even if opportunities are available. This will be the real deal maker/breaker for lasting peace in Kashmir.

                                                                                          • Virendra Kumar - Motivator, Coach

                                                                                            I loved this interview. Both the Kashmiris were very realistic. I appreciate that. Now the point is that in 1990 too, there was long curfew so it is not new for them. There are some restrictions on movement and primarily on the internet . Internet is the primary instrument which is being used by terrorists to mobilise the people so this restriction is there. This is the primary reason why no clashes have taken place and no casualty has taken place because police have not fired a single shot. Restrictions are there but you could interview the people on the street. What is the bottom line? Bottom line is that peace has to be restored and no casualty should be allowed. Pakistan and our internal enemies are trying hard to mobilise the people against the government . It will follow this sequence: once the peace is restored- investment will come - jobs will be created and Kashmiris themselves will realise that it was a bitter pill and now good days are ahead. The Indian public has a role to play, please ensure that Kashmiris are treated at par with other Indian nationals, no loose talk to hurt them. Two Kashmiris who were interviewed were very clear, peace and investment. The intention of the government should be very clear in their actions and I am sure Kashmiris will see that.
