Now-Gandhian Malik should use Gandhian & Gita technique to solve Kashmir problem

Hem Raj Jain

Dear Editor

Sub:- (i)- Government of India depending only on military solution to Kashmir problem (ii)- Situation were never so conducive for non-violent solution to Kashmir problem as post Burhan killing (iii)- Malik should reap the dividends of chosen non-violent path (iv)- People of Indo-Pak region will remember Malik forever, if he solves Kashmir problem through non-violence.

Yasin Malik [of JKLF and an ex-militant (who was allowed by India to renounce the path of armed rebellion) and who has become a Gandhian by adopting non-violence as political technique to solve Kashmir problem] now has golden opportunity to solve Kashmir problem through non-violence, as given below:-

(1)- First and foremost Malik should understand that (even if nuclear factor of India and Pakistan is over-looked) the Kashmiris can’t get solution to their problem through violence (not even with the support of military and Jihadis of Pakistan) because Indian military is too powerful against all these in traditional war. This is the main reason that government of India has already hardened its stance toward main demands of Kashmiris (also through main-stream parties of Kashmir namely NC and PDP). This is evident from weekend visit of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to valley where India has shown no interest either in removing stringent laws like AFSPA etc or in talking to Pakistan and Kashmiri separatists.

(2)- Hence Malik should take a vow that he will see to it that no one is killed or no blood flows in future for the solution of Kashmir problem. Malik should understand that situation were never so conducive for solving Kashmir problem no-violently as post Burhan killing. Due to home-grown support for the political solution of Kashmir problem, now it is very easy for Malik to garner the support from entire spectrum of Kashmiris for Kashmir solution. Hence Malik (who commands huge following and support in both sides of J&K and in India and in Pakistan) should not let this opportunity (of non-violent solution to Kashmir problem) go as waste.

(3)- Without unification of J&K there is no Kashmir solution. Moreover India and Pakistan both consider J&K (on both the sides of border / LOC) as their territory. Hence Malik should further understand that people of India and Pakistan and entire J&K have every right to go anywhere in J&K (on both the sides of border / LOC). Hence in view of said military – oriented approach of Government of India (which is not liked by many human rights friendly Indians from all over India) Malik should launch an international HRNGO (for both sides of border / LOC) to take the non-violent march to Muzaffarabad the capital of POK (and similarly to Srinagar).

(4)- (If we do not count the non- Muslim majority area population of Jammu & Ladhakh in initial phase of the movement as they and from rest of India may join little later-on), the population of Muslim majority Kashmir valley is ~ 7 million whereas of POK is ~ 5 million (which would be easier for Malik to approach during initial phase). If Malik can mobilize even one fourth of this population to take march across border / LOC and to court arrest (which certainly would be done by security forces of India and Pakistan) then these ~ 3 million people of India (including J&K), Pakistan (including POK) in jail for the cause of finding no-violent solution to chronic & gory Kashmir problem, is bound to arouse tremendous international response in favor of urgent Kashmir solution.

(5)- In addition to said Gandhian approach (of courting arrest of ~ 3 million people from both sides of border / LOC) Malik should also adopt approach as advocated in ‘Bhagwat Gita’ - by not bothering about the result. Because action in right path (of non-violent approach to Kashmir problem) is bound to result in a satisfactory solution to all involved and concerned (under huge pressure of international community in addition to pressure from the people of India and Pakistan).

(6)- On Indian side of border / LOC the human rights friendly Indians (including from J&K) will provide elaborate social services including tents/ Langar / first-aid etc for the benefit of people who will assemble at border / Loc for courting arrest (same can be done in Pakistani / POK side too by POK branch of to-be-launched NGO of Malik).

(7)- Therefore Malik should immediately take a press-conference for informing the people (national and international) about his new HRNGO and its activities for Kashmir solution and should call-off ‘Bandh’ / strike given by separatists and should start mobilizing people from both sides of Border / LOC (through this HRNGO) in order to carry-out non-violent march to Muzaffarabad etc and to Srinagar etc by crossing Border / LOC (and even courting arrest by at-least ~ 3 million people) in the interest of finding Kashmir solution without any further delay. Malik (once this HRNGO is registered) should also in Indian side start mobilizing funds in a transparent manner (not only from Kashmir or for that matter from rest of J&K but) from all over India to carry-out this march to Muzaffrabad etc.

It is hoped that Yasin Malik will rise to the occasion and will reap the dividends of chosen non-violent path. The People of Indo-Pak region will remember Malik forever, if he solves Kashmir problem through Gandhian technique of non-violence, generally as mentioned above.

A newborn child deserves the utmost respect, says Juvenal

Clemente Ferre

The Summa has given to the Hospital Infanta Sofía of San Sebastián de los Reyes a newborn baby found in the meter room of a house in the Pazos Street, in the municipality of Algete. <>, it has been reported by the Emergency Center Community of Madrid.

It's horrifying and it is very poignant to hear about a baby abandoned in a garbage container in Algete. It is not possible to believe that a mother has a heartless attitude to abandone a baby. Thinking about the reasons, one of them would be: the education of the mother in human and civic values. Therefore, when the foundations of coexistence are undermined consequently arises selfishness, hedonist, materialist and moral standards are neglected. It is contributing to appear more cases like this.

But we are aware of the obstacles that society imposes on those individual personalities. The family is treeless; the school, disavowed; the legitimate authority, flouted. If the family is the first educator cell of the society. żWhy it is being destroyed?

In this decadent society must be appraised the newborn in all his dimensions and significance as a developing person and the adults seem to have a special effort to go “against nature” degrading their physical and moral integrity. Those cruel mothers must not forget that their children are not theirs, they are children of God.

While the great livid window like television supplants parents, we can not be surprised that the garbage container be the most appropriate crib for a newborn. “We must repeat wiith the utmost firmness that nothing and nobody can allow us to kill an innocent human being, it be a foetus, embryo, a child, an adult, an elderly or a sick in his incurable agony.

Request for Sajjad Masih's Freedom

Nadeem Hamid

Greetings in Christ mighty name

It is the request of a poor widow mother of Mr. Sajjad Masih, an Adventist Christian, is being persecuted in Pakistani jail under the false charge 295C, a blasphemy charge which sentence is death plenty. His case is being trailed by the Lahore High Court. No Church or no NGO’S is taking any measure for his acquittal. His Mother, a widow 65 aged Bashiran Bibi is pursuing the case. She doesn’t have any support from any NGO’S yet. Even she has sold her sole property and spent on his son. She has requested many people for help but not one is hearing her. Many people has taken and used Sajjad Masih’s name, and taking money from other NGO’S. Please pray for Sajjad Masih’s freedom.

The origin of Gender ideology

Roberto Grao

Throughout the history of philosophy, there has been lapidary phrases that have been made famous by the degree of acceptance they have obtained, especially by many highly educated and intelligent people who we call intellectual because they have developed to the maximum level their intelectual capacity.

One of those phrases, for example, by the French philosopher Descartes in the seventeenth century when he said: “I think, therefore I am”, which is a perogrullescapero truth that can not stand the derivative that would be: “then when I do not think, I do not exist” which is not true.

Another of those famous phrases by Simone de Beauvoirescritora, a French philosopher when she wrote in 1949: “One is not born woman, but becomes one”, which can not withstand the slightest positive analysis comparing it with the reality of being human. It is as if a lion could think and say: “I was not born lion but I've become a lion” since, obviously if you weren't born a woman or lion, can't become a woman or lion.

This reasoning from S. de Beauvoir is a false statement as it is unreal, it has captivated the intelligence of many intellectuals surprisingly, who have taken advantage of developing a new theory of human sexuality called: “gender ideology”, which has already imposed at high levels to the European and Western policy, through the ONU, UNESCO, OMS and the U.E. żHow has it be possible? żWhat have those intellectual encouraged to feel captivated and be stimulated to develop and to impose it?.

I think what has encouraged them to do it, it is the human pride, it happens especially to those people who make the thinking, study and writing their profession and livelihood because the level of ordinary people who lives the difficulties, illusions and disappointments of everyday life and don't have a higher intellectual qualification, they don't raise the question at all, live and act in accordance with their human nature and what their common sense says.

The development of this original and fallacious phrase of Madame de Beauvoir, is already consisting of those Western societies, to deny the consequences of the sexual nature received by each person when they are born and to choose the sex they want to belong and the sexual orientation they want to be part freely, to the point that it is not only providing by the law of gender identity to adult people but it is also intending to provide children who can choose their sex in an early premature children and having sex with other children early, without distinction of sex, age or family relationship which is an usurpation of the will and responsability by the parents who are the main responsible for the education of their children.

In addition, they are getting it through laws, regulations, guidelines etc. which has begun to take effect legally in the coexistence of those societies, through those and other international organizations without the common people be aware of it.
