Will Modi’s Reckless Hindutva Agenda In Jammu & Kashmir Lead To A Nuclear Winter Involving India-Pakistan & China 

By Latheef Farook

August 5 marks the first anniversary of the  abrogation of more than seventy year old Indian constitutional provision, Article 370, which guaranteed limited autonomy to  Jammu and Kashmir – home to more than 12 million mainly Muslims.

This illegal revocation, despite all the guarantees to United Nations and other international forums, was done by the Hindutva  government of Narendra Modi who was twice elected prime minister despite his role as the architect of genocide of Gujarati Muslims in February 2002 and violence against New Delhi Muslims  last February   

Abrogation of the constitutional guarantee, robbed Kashmiris of their autonomy, rights and dignity, was accompanied by a draconian lockdown which crippled Kashmiris life to date. Besides Modi also placed all Kashmiri Muslim politicians including former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti under house arrest under a strict military and communication clampdown. 

Mode government’s unilateral action of seizing Kashmiri’s identity on Israeli model, has set ablaze  peace and stability in the South Asian region. The United States and Europe, Pakistan’s traditional allay China, US-Israeli stooges  Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates and even other Arab tyrants aligned with Modi government and virtually abandoned Kashmiri Muslims. 

Israel, planted in the heart of  Middle East in violation of all accepted laws, human norms and decency, has been hand glove with Modi  to persecution of Indian Muslims in general and Kashmiri Muslims in particular.

Speculations were that Modi’s Hindustan government and Israel were also hand in glove with Sinhala racist elements in Sri Lanka. 

Modi’s government introduced the highly controversial law, Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which drew widespread protests throughout the country from Muslims, liberals, students and activists who are for India remaining a secular state as envisaged in the constitution. The CAA in combination with other recent moves such as the compilation of the National Population Register (NPR) and the proposed National Register of Citizens (NRC) are moves to marginalize Muslims who form nearly more than 20 percent of the country’s 1.3 billion people.

Modi’s government is not interested in developing the country and ensuring a better life for his people, but hell bent on eliminating Islam and Muslim from India. The latest being the building of Ram Temple at the site of Ayodhya mosque which they demolished.

Last February Modi government unleashed violence on Muslims in the northern and eastern regions of New Delhi sending up in flames, Muslim owned commercial, residential and industrial properties, costing billions and depriving livelihood, while innocent Muslims were killed and women raped and gang raped in the presence of their loved ones.  

Western correspondents said that the New Delhi police were complicit with the rioting Hindu mobs. A Hindu rioter claimed on Indian TV that when their mobs ran out of stones to pelt Muslims the police supplied them with a stock of stones.

In the wake of these atrocities came the deadly corona virus which crippled the whole world including India which became the third worst affected. However Modi’s government was fully occupied with introducing laws, changing demography and ground realities aimed at turning Muslims irrelevant in their own lands and homes in Jammu and Kashmir

The main purposes of abrogating article 370 is to colonize the region with Hindus to reduce the Muslim population in the same way Zionist Jews, kicked out Palestinians from their lands and homes, to establish a Jewish  state in Palestinian lands.  

 As part of this deception, Modi government introduced new domicile law facilitating  the previously barred outsiders from other Indian states from buying land and settling in Kashmir. So far up to 25,000 outsiders were granted residency in the disputed region, which is also claimed by Pakistan.   

In an article titled “the gradual encroachment on Kashmiri rights and growing prospect of colonization could set the region on fire”, Anuradha Bhasin, Executive Editor of Kashmir Times had given vivid details of deceptive ways adopted by Modi government to create demographic change in Kashmir. She added that;

A stringent clampdown on J&K under military boots including an absolute communication blockade allowed the Indian government to surreptitiously scrap its special status and split it into more pliable units last year. The longest-ever lockdown in Kashmir served the purpose of scuttling any public outrage and also ensured that information slipped into a black hole, making an entire population invisible and their grievances inaudible.

Today, a pathway is being paved for replicating the Israeli model of occupation and colonization of the West Bank in Kashmir towards disempowerment and dispossession of the locals, particularly Kashmiri Muslims, to exercise hegemonic control through new settlers.

Addressing a gathering of Kashmiri Hindus sometime last November a serving Indian diplomat in the United States, averred that “Kashmiri culture is Indian culture; it is Hindu culture” and espoused the Israeli model of West Bank settlements as the way forward.  

The recent moves indicate a more systemic pattern of making this model the centerpiece of India’s Kashmir policy. The present lockdown has been used to plot the points on the map while avoiding any public outcry. This arsenal of administrative changes in a fragile setting is like dumping fuel that could well trigger an inferno of unimaginable proportions.

The government is underestimating the patience and silence of the public and the international ramifications of riding roughshod over the aspirations of the people of Kashmir and pushing them to the margins as secondary citizens with an uptick in massive human rights abuse.

The 2019 lockdown was unconstitutional, undemocratic and morally erroneous. But this has now become the foundational principle of India’s strategy in Kashmir with no punctuations of presence. If the first lockdown was successful in preventing public outcry over the loss of special status and protections, the other provided a stepping stone for laying the blueprint of what the Indian government intends to do as part of its larger agenda.

The new domicile rule, and its timing, stirred up anxieties, particularly among the J&K youth, irrespective of their ethnic and communal identities or their political ideologies, as it meant they would be losing government jobs, they earlier had a monopoly over, to outsiders. The government is one of the biggest employers of fresh graduates in the region and in the spring a number of recruitment processes were stalled, prompting suspicions that this was done intentionally to allow outsiders who qualified for domicile under the new rule to apply as well.

Under the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Act, which came into effect in October, the legal provisions restricting ownership of private property to permanent residents were struck down. In the past, local land reform legislation empowered peasants including the socially oppressed classes, giving them a sense of dignity and making J&K one of the few states in the country where nobody died of starvation.

The amended land-related laws induce fears in the local population of not just losing their exclusive privileges but also of suffering under possible monopolistic economic hegemonies. For now, using the pandemic as an excuse, the government has also halted the 150-year-old annual practice of shifting the capital from Jammu to Srinagar in the summer.  

The government decision to begin the delimitation (redrawing of boundaries) of electoral constituencies, to give Hindu-majority Jammu more seats, will reshape the local political dynamics.  The Delimitation Commission was announced on March 6 and immediately the process of data collection was set in motion. It has been going on without any punctuation throughout the COVID-19 lockdown.

Structures of power are being dismantled bit by bit, particularly emaciating the political significance of Srinagar and turning Jammu into a symbolic site of victory while keeping its people disempowered.

Kashmiris can’t be subjugated to the oppression tainted resolution of the issue. India has seen it throughout the last seven decades. Kashmiris did not budge to the coercive tactics and not willing to accept Indian hegemony even now. They have hundreds of thousands of martyrs in the name of Kashmir independence and thus they would never sell their blood to occupation forces. 

Amid such a resilient resistance by the Kashmiris vis-à-vis hardliner policies of the rightist Hindu government in center, there are all the likely chances that a kinetic action may take place embroiling three nuclear powers-India, Pakistan and China. Such an eventuality may spiral up unexpectedly leading to actualizing of most feared nuclear winter. The world community and other peace and security organization have to act fast against the Indian government’s extremist acts   to ensure global peace and harmony.

While the international community is pre-occupied with fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, India is busy intensifying its brutalization of the Kashmiri people. Extra-judicial killing of Kashmiri youth in fake encounters and so-called ‘anti-infiltration’ operations have increased manifolds since August 5, 2019.

    Sri lanka is also supporter for china since y understanding that one Indian had interference in internal affairs Pakistan considers China as one of its closest friend and partner and China considers Pakistan as its Iron Brother China-Pakistan unveils the Long-term Plan of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, commitment to bilateral relations and the leaders developed good rapport for future cooperation. War is never a lasting solution for any probleM only the dead have seen the end of war, Someone or men declare war . But it is youth that must fight and die.

    I see a lot of similarities in Modi, the Rajapaksas, Wigneswaran, and Malcolm Ranjith. And I’m beginning to get worried. Is it real – or, am I just ‘seeing things’ ? It may be nothing more than a common passion for wearing costumes and for religious pretense. Or is it ?

    What a coincidence where on August 5 th first anniversary of abrogation, foundation stone laid for Ayodhya (again a long standing disputed land) by PM Modi, Lanka loosing its “Democrazy” after 70 or so years of independence and a massive Beirut explosion ( on the day of judgement related to ex PM murder) all happening on the same day. Indeed a day to remember. What is common between all three religion and violence.

    Jammu is predominantly Hindu and 10% of the Kashmiri population were Hindu Saivites ( largely Pandits) who were brutally ethnically cleansed by the Muslims and their lands home, confiscated. Now most of them are living in poverty in other north Indian states. Mr. Latif fails to mention this and keeps quiet.
    They Kashmiri Hindus are the original people in Kashmir , just like the Tamil in Eastern province. Now under threat from immigrant fake Arab converted South Indian Dravidians and Sinhalese settlers. The so called Muslims are descended from the Kashmiri Hindus who were forced to convert or die , during Islamic rule. Some of them descended from the Afghan invaders , Some of most sacred and ancient Saivite shrines are in Kashmir.

    I cannot understand why these Indian origin Dravidian Tamil Muslims of Sri Lanka , constantly howl other Muslim people with whom they have hardly any relationship , other than their religion and constantly want to identify themselves with Arabs, North Indian, Pakistani and Central/West Asian Muslims . Never hear them howling about African Muslim of Darfur or the Rohingya.

      Siva Sankaran Sharma,
      I think you have a new definition for ‘Original People’.
      How can people who were brought from Hindusthan by Portuguese and dumped in Yapanaya and later settled in the North Central Province (Nuwarakalawiya) and coastal areas of the Eastern Province (Tirikunamale and Madakalapuwa) during British rule by Governors Torrington (1848) and Ward (1856) claim that they are ‘Original People’ in Eastern Province?

      “They Kashmiri Hindus are the original people in Kashmir , just like the Tamil in Eastern province.”

        Dear respectable Ogle Eye
        I believe what SSS means is that the moment anyone claims an Aryan origin they do not originally belong in the Indian sub continent which includes the current India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and even part of Afghanistan.
        because, unlike the ‘Aryans’, Dravidian languages are indigenous to the Indian sub continent and the ‘Aryan’ languages are also found everywhere else in the world. either there is no Aryan-ism and we all belong in the Indian Sub- Continent or if there IS Aryan-ism then there IS Dravidian-ism and the Aryans are not the original people in the sub continent. pick your choice leisurely and provide any supporting research material if you do believe on the contrary. please do not forget that the further south you travel in the Indian sub continent, the more Dravidian it gets and by that logic Sri Lanka has to be more Dravidian in its make up. thank you.

      Yes, Latheef is one of those typical liberal/Islamic Extremists with a very distorted view of history, as appears to be the case for most of the readers and commentors here and most of the ‘Colombo Liberals’. Most have never lived or worked in India (I lived there for ten years) to know that the ground situation is very different to what extremist funded media presents. It was dissapointing to see that those of the quality of Tisaranee too have drunk this koolaid. Perhaps they did not know that Indonesia was once a Hindu nation (look what happened there) or that India was in fact a Hindu country long before the religion of peace invaded their shores. Better the BJP than the Congress who were in bed with the extremists (both in India and in Sri Lanka!). After all, have they forgotten why Pakistan was created? How many are allowed to freely practice any other religion there?

    Ayatollah Balds head had humbled Latheef’s venom spewing factory for some time after three Tamil Churches bombing. Now he is back again with his bells and whistles, to balance the missed period.

    Lebanon death seems to very high. Half of the town’s building’s roofs are missing. 300,000 lost homes. 4,000 so far accounted as injured. In that Latheef is wishing to India – Pakistan go for a nuclear war and China lend atomic weapons to Pakistan. It is Allah’s mistake create Latheef like the ones to keep the world under nuclear clouds instead of Sun & rain clouds.

    Hey Latheef,

    Why should we care about your favorite stories affecting people in far away unholy places on earth? We should worry about our own backyard defiled by Muslim extremists in Sri Lanka. It is true Pakistan, China and India have their own agendas and design to undermine our Sovereignty and the existence of Sinhala Nation. Muslim nation; Pakistan, Hindu Nation; India and Chinese Nation ; China will protect their sovereignty and the nation using their own techniques, therefore why should we pay attention to the crappy circumstances in an inhospitable, unholy, desolate corner on earth. Let them beat each other to gain supremacy for a piece of real estate not worth the toilet paper. It is appropriate for guys promoting the interests of Pakistan to relocate to Pakistan. No wonder why Sri Lankan Muslims cheer Pakistani cricket team when they play against Sri Lankan or Indian cricket team.

    Latif

    First get your facts right. Muslims in India constitute only 13 % and not 20% as you claim. The problem with you Muslims is that you all multiply like pigs and pollute the whole planet. Despite your anti – Hindu ,anti- Indian rantings here you Muslims have no friends in the world now. Wait and watch the Chinese who hate the Uighur Muslims so much will ditch Pakistan and join India soon.

    Muslims are well come to return to Mecca should they wish.

    Latiff,
    Modi said that the image of Lord Ram as a unifier, a message that could appeal to all—from Dalits and tribals to the people of North, South, East and West India, and beyond Including Pakistan and Afganistan). The story of Lord Ram resonates in many places, such as Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand and Laos, even having made its mark in places as far as Iran and China. Modi utilized this historic event to extent an olive branch to Nepal, with which India has of late had strained relations.
    Modi articulated his speech brilliantly. Every word that he spoke was a message of unity, love and togetherness. Every word that was uttered expressed thousands of sentiments from across India and the world. I think from North to Kanyakumari and beyond including Sri Lanka and from Burma to Pakistan there will be Ram Rajiya signalling unity. If one peels everyone’s background, there is Hinduism which cannot be denied.

    Modi’s government is not interested in developing the country and ensuring a better life for his people, but hell bent on eliminating Islam and Muslim from India.

      Modi is another person acting and dressed up like clown going back in history with religion, Muslims must take a responsibility as well for not assimilating and co existing with other communities. They the Muslims are hated in most countries while Hindus and Buddhist are non violent in spite of their violent and corrupt leaders and they coexist with others in many countries. .

    RBH59,
    Modi’s next step is economic development. Meanwhile he has a formidable task of neutralizing the tension with China or defeat China itself. Now that after Sri Lanka’s election, there will be another drama if China deeply plant its foot after Rajapaksa’s thumping victory. Even in 1977 JR had a thumping victory, but IPKF entered Sri Lanka. Now if China poses a threat, we will have to watch India’s move. Sri Lanka in a quandry, because China demand money from Maldives and India has intervened. Remember Sri Lanka and India are members of SAARC.

    What do you mean by nuclear winter ? Pakiland may have a few nuclear devices called Islamic bombs but god forbid if ever they try to use it ( I am sure the Chinese who supplied those dud bombs would have removed their plugs to make sure that they don’t go off as the Chinese themselves don’t trust the Pakis ( muslims) ) number one they must go off when they are dropped on target. whether one or two of them go off or not when dropped on India, it will remove Pakiland from the world map with hydrogen bombs. Before India strikes, Isreal and US will let loose all their nuclear arsenals not only on Pakiland but also on many other Islamic terrorists states like Iran, SRIya. Even your Macca wont be spared.

    Indians need not worry about Pakiland the failed terrorist state in the world .There are many other interested international players who will remove this hell hole from this planet , they are waiting for an opportunity and what better opportunity it will be than when Pakiland uses it is naft nuclear devices. on its neighbours.

      When India blasts Pakiland with the nuclear weapons China will not even lift it’s little finger . When Kashmir was annexed China point blankly refused to move the UN security council against India. At the end of the day Hindus, Chinese, Burmese Buddhist hate the Muslim terrorists. We will act together to remove the barbaric Islamic terrorists and their sponsors like Pakiland from this planet soon.
