Taliban Specter

India is trying hard to equate our struggle with that of Al-Qaeda and Taliban to garner support of west but our struggle is a national liberation movement poles apart from Taliban aimed to achieve complete independence and reunification of our forcibly divided parts of Kashmir.
This refers to the news report of some agencies that Taliban may have reached to the Kupwara forests. It seems to be a well calculated move by India to malign our genuine freedom struggle by associating it with that of likes of Taliban and Alqaeda. Our struggle is a resistance movement based on U.N resolutions which are near about 18 in number passed by U.N Security Council to which both India and Pakistan are signatories and world witness to them. Even those who have taken up arms have declared to fight under the Geneva conventions and have restricted their fight with India within J&K. India is trying hard to equate our struggle with that of Al-Qaeda and Taliban to garner support of west but our struggle is a national liberation movement poles apart from Taliban aimed to achieve complete independence and reunification of our forcibly divided parts of Kashmir.

These kind of false notions are being spread to justify the presence of 7 lakh troops who have been empowered by draconian laws which provide them total impunity from the law of land. Which is the root cause of human rights violations by these so called security forces. The wanton use of force and arm twisting methods employed during previous elections may be used again for the parliamentary elections but these kind of cheap tactics won’t be able to break the will of valiant Kashmiris who have been fighting for their inherent, internationally recognised, pledged, fully deserved and unfettered right of self-determination. Elections or no elections won’t change the future status of Kashmir dispute as elections in real sense are meant for the development issues only. The more India will use force to crush the movement of Independence aimed actually to remind her of its own promise from which this “world’s largest democracy” backtracked upon the stronger will be the resentment and will of Kashmiris and history bears testimony to this fact.
