On the 22nd of February, 1994 the Indian Parliament* UNANIMOUSLY** passed the below resolution:

On behalf of the People of India, the Indian Parliament firmly declares that-
(a) The State of Jammu & Kashmir has been, is and shall be an integral part of India and any attempts to
 separate it from the rest of the country will be resisted by all necessary means;

(b) India has the will and capacity to firmly counter all designs against its unity, sovereignty and territorial
 integrity; and demands that -

(c) Pakistan must vacate the areas of the Indian State of Jammu and Kashmir, which they have occupied
 through aggression; and resolves that -

(d) All attempts to interfere in the internal affairs of India will be met resolutely."

TODAY on the 22nd of February let’s re-iterate this resolution with more vigour and more determination.

* Indian Parliament implies WE – the people, WE the 120 Crore citizens of India (Not only the politicians)!

** Unanimous implies that ALL political parties are in support. Thus it is NOT A POLITICAL issue – but a NATIONAL one.


Ø October 26th 1947 – COMPLETE  merger of the state of J&K in India.
Ø  Pak Occupied Kashmir (PoK) created by India around Jan 1st 1948! Sounds weird – but True!
o   We took the issue to UN for no reason.
o    Declared unilateral ceasefire and didn’t drive away pak army completely out of Kashmir.
o   This is the current LoC – Line of Control.
Ø   China Occupied Kashmir (CoK) – We lost to the Chinese aggression in 1962 and now about 36,500 sq.kms of Ladakh is illegally occupied by China.
Ø  Later Pakistan gave 5,500 sq.kms under it’s occupation to China as a gift.
So finally what’s the arithmetic? – We have retained less (@ 45%) and lost more. (Total J&K area  2,23,063 Sq. Kms. But Indian occupation counts to 1,01,000 Sq. Kms. only).


Ø MYTH: Kashmir is the largest area in the J&K state.
FACT: Kashmir valley (Where the supposed to be problem is there) is only 15% in area of the entire J&K state (Jammu is around 26% and Ladhak being the largest – 58%). Even by population Jammu is highest as compared with Kashmir valley and Ladhak.

Ø MYTHThe Kashmir problem is spanning the entire state of J&K
FACT: The so called problem is NOT IN  JAMMU;is NOT IN LADHAK; and not even in entire Kashmir valley. But it is confined only to four of the 10 districts — Baramula, Srinagar, Pulwama, Anantnag–Shopia Nagar.

Ø MYTH: Kashmiri people do not want to stay in India
FACT: No Gujjar, Shia, Pahadi, nationalist Muslim, Kashmiri Sikh and Pandit, Ladakhi, refugee groups, Dogras, Buddists etc. were ever involved in any separatist agitations. Infact The Muslims in Kargil are known as staunch patriots. They openly supported the Indian security forces during the Pakistani intrusion in Kargil in the year 1999. 

Anti national forces are only led by handful of self centred politicians whose support base is diminishing day by day.

Ø MYTH: The Kashmiri people and particularly the Kashmiri muslims are the ones who are suppressed and oppressed.
FACT: The nationalist and the refugees are the real oppressed and suppressed masses. They include Kashmiri Pandits who had to flee Kashmir during 1990 (4 Lakhs), refugees from PoK in 1947, West Pakistan and during 1947 and 1965 wars.

Ø MYTH: Kashmir region has been neglected politically
FACT: In 2008, per capita central assistance was Rs 9754 in the state whereas it was Rs 876 per person in backward states like Bihar. It includes 90 per cent as grants and 10 per cent as required to be given back, whereas the remaining states have to pay back 70 per cent. The table below is self explanatory:

9.61 Lakhs

4.0 Lakhs
Employee in the Secretariat
Total Budget on Tourism  
10% of Total Budget
85% of Total Budget
Number of tourist in 2009
85 Lakhs
8 Lakhs

Ø MYTH: Backwardness, illiteracy  etc. are the root causes of the problem in Kashmir
FACT: After Kerala, J&K is the most literate state.  There are no slums in Kashmir valley – every home is a permanent structure.

Ø MYTH: PoK region does not have any strategic importance
FACT: Gilgit in PoK has its borders linked with five countries such as Afghanistan, Tajikistan, China, Tibet and Pakistan. From strategic point of view, this area of Central Asia is inaccessible and protected. This is a point from where anyone can hold supremacy in whole of Asia having a strong military base.

Let there be no doubt in our minds that –

Getting back the entire J&K is a big task, but surely not an impossible one. If 120 Crore people of
this country decide firmly then nothing will be impossible.


To climb the 29K feet Everest, the first step is only of 29 inches

This is Only the beginning …

खुद को कर इतना बुलंद की खुदा खुद बंदे से पुछे की बता तरी रजा क्या है?
पर हमारी रजा क्या है?
और हमें बुलंद बनने की तीव्र इच्छा है??
