    Read your article on Scroll. it was worth a read!
    There has always been biased commentary on those years of Kashmir’s past. Let’s hope a change in the environment. One can easily see radicalised stands of people of both communities.
    God bless you.
    Thanks and Regards.

    Just finished reading your write up on Anupam Kher becoming the dominant voice of the KPs..Agree with you a 100%. Also wonderful to know that I am not alone in feeling that the KP story is getting lost in the nasty rhetoric that seems to have become the order of the day, be it the internet or broadcasting…and that serves no purpose except to incite negative emotions…
    Thank you so very much!

    Interesting site. This lady is relatively cautious. Kashmiris have suffered much due to Pakistan a small state being used by other countries. India is now the third strongest military power after Russia and the USA, surely stronger than a strongly Jewish backed China. Thus absolute peace shall come to Kashmir and also POK shall be liberated. I have studied in the Valley (speak Kashmiri) and am all for Kashmiris retaining their Aryan Central Asian ethnicity. Also Kashmiriyat shall survive; after all most Kashmiris have the same origin; that is they took up islam from Kashmiri Hindus. Bharat is Unity in Diversity. The Jews do not like diversity for well known reasons.
