After watching the image of a small kid holding pallets in hand and showing to armed forces, my inner conscience was shaken. Violence, hatred can never bring peace to human society. Don’t be proud of this unjustified hatred; Hatred only yields more hatred and this vicious cycle never stops.
Being a fellow Indian I have always had a good feeling about all the Kashmir’s people I have meet in real life through Handloom Exhibitions. I will always go first to the Kashmiri stall and buy the beautiful shawls and other Handloom and handicrafts items of Kashmir, and I have always felt exquisite about the politeness of Kashmiri people. Inside me, there was a feeling that if my friends and I can buy all these items from them, it’s a two-way benefit for us as customers and for helping out the unique Kashmiri traditional Handloom sector some way economically.
I went to Srinagar in Dal Lake and smitten by the beauty of nature and the people, and I recommend many people to visit Kashmir. Again in my mind, it was the thought of two-way benefits we are getting to see paradise in the earth and indirectly helping the tourism sector in Kashmir. Not only me but also my friends who visited Kashmir, all have a same good feeling about Kashmir and its people. We ordinary Indians have always wanted to have a well prosperous Kashmir as we have always thought of Kashmiris as our own people, and nothing can mesmerize me more than the beautiful Kashmiri songs and the Sufi culture of Kashmir. No bloody person should have the right to tell that rest fellow countrymen don’t like Kashmiris.
One day I saw on TV few youths chanting in JNU, “Bharat Teri barbadi hogi”, one day I saw people helping militants to get out of armed forces operations. All my life watching the naked hatred for my country Because Average Indian looks and religious practice doesn’t match with people from valley.
Another day I saw people supporting a dead militant and glorifying him because he was the leader in the contest of who can have the maximum hatred towards India. It was the best battleground to show for their typical aggressiveness by venting their frustration and anger in the country by coming in large numbers and then instigating forces with verbal abuse and inviting the trouble. Their motive is to showcase the entire world how brutal the military of the biggest democracy of the world is.
One day we saw hundreds of YouTube videos where thousands of youths encircling the armed forces and instigating them with shouting slogans against India and its constitution while chanting for Azadi but showing the flag of Pakistan. If the definition and symbol of azadi is Pakistan, then they are most welcome to travel to the land of Azadi.
Every day I saw the naked hatred and anger for my motherland and a hysterical mob satisfying their religious duty by cursing the nation to unlimited ways.
The takers always expect the more from the givers, and if demands are not met then the takers will start harming itself to generate attention and after that threatens the givers by blackmailing.
An armed force is never a group of individuals they are the mirror of every citizens’ security and protection, and the armed forces represent the nation. If one of the strong pillars, the armed forces of a country is instigated with unlimited verbal abuse pointing towards India, then the forces will do things which they are supposed to do.
Like so called freedom fighters from the valley, our armed forces are the custodian of our freedom and security.
I have seen so many young people injured or killed, and it is heart rendering. The question is for which Azadi or for whose ideology the hatred ego messages are spreading. Some hysterical mob doing everything to instigate armed forces and venting so much anger for my country. The police force which constitutes mostly ordinary Kashmiris doing their duty for supporting their family is also compelled to use force against their own people.
Few people very well know it is the best way to vent anger and resentment by showing blood of ordinary citizens. This can be done by instigating hysteria, and the hatred will grow for the nation. It will lead to more violence, and we will get others support to vindicates the Azadi theory in front of the world. After so much blood spilling has anyone come to rescue except the main trouble generator? Has anyone from the naked mob asked themselves why no one has supported us?
The day Kashmir’s wise people understand that the Azadi they are talking about should be from the inner mindset of long sowed seed of hatred for the state developed due to differences in religious beliefs and ignited by the vested interests who wear their religion in every breath for satisfying a false ego.
If it’s not understood the so-called guardians, it will always try to flare up the raw religious emotions of people, and it only keeps on spilling more blood of innocents.
In this 21st century, the power of true intellect rather than old aggrieved and hatred ideology will only survive. Before more blood spills over, true sense must prevail. It’s introspection time for common Kashmiris as what they get by blindly following these so called old ideology-based war mongers and believer of two nations theory.
I have seen an obvious different change of face and body language of people of Kashmir from 2000 to now 2016. The sober beautiful looking peoples face has been replaced by old self-centered religious identity based masked people whose primary aim is to go into history books. These hatred mongers should also realize what harm their ego and ideology did to the common Kashmir’s who are holding stones in place of pens and sacrificing their precious life by listening to and also following blindly to the dictates of these self-centered religious bigots.
The day the common people of Kashmir realized that these guardians sitting and deciding the future of Kashmiris from their own comfort and few guardians sitting beside the other side of the fence are the main culprit for the current plight, then the state will always do the needful for its citizens’ welfare. It’s not wise to judge so fast with hatred for the intention of the state.
Unless the natural calmness is not back among people than the correctness of judgment will always have the error and the bitterly developed aggressiveness doesn’t replace out from the face an entire generation of people’s future will be uncertain.
Let peace prevail.
