Lifting restrictions, ban on internet and communication system need of hour in Kashmir

Narinder Singh

Detaining of political leaders in the state and out of state jails and not allowing the leaders of the national opposition parties repeatedly to enter the territory of Jammu &Kashmir and banning of Internet/Communication system in the state apart from Curfew like restrictions in the valley for more than three weeks after abrogation of Article 370 & 35A are not the solutions to the problem. Rather applying such oppressive methods can aggravate the situation , more over leaders of those regional political parties who have opted for remaining with India after partition should not be equated with terrorists, therefore, leaders of the various national opposition political parties must be allowed to contact / interact with the mainstream political leaders of the state who have been put behind bars,to ensure normalcy in the state at the earliest.Such like methods / measures amounts to violations of fundamental rights/human rights, after all there is Rule of Law and not Law of jungle in our country, even various organizations and journalists have approached the Supreme Court against snapping of Internet services and communication system but no outcome so far . The issue is being internationalized, more you delay things will be more complicated and violative situation can erupt like volcano, anytime, So immediate steps should be taken to normalize the situation in the state, so that tourism industry and other industries can flourish in the state which is not possible in the prevailing situation due to heavy deployment of armed forces and imposing Curfew like restrictions and snapping of Internet services and communication system which has definitely affected the normal life of a common man who is cut off from the rest of the world in the absence of such facilities. Kashmiris are peace loving people and always considered themselves and Jammu &Kashmir State as integral part of India ,the prevailing unrest in the state especially in the valley is the result of Pakistan sponsored terrorism and our inability to check the infiltration on LOC for which Kashmiri's can't be blamed, whatsoever is happening in the valley, is under the fear of the terrorists and due to unemployment of youths .Now the need of the hour is winning the trust of Kashmiri's by offering employment to almost all deserving youth, till that time they should be given monthly allowance, this expenditure will not be more than defence budget being spent on the deployment of the armed forces in the Kashmir valley. Moreover, amnesty and immunity schemes for the anti national elements, terrorists and their sympathizers should be sanctioned/ announced for their past unlawful activities with the conditions that they would not repeat such activities in future, failing which law will take its own course.
The basic need today is to bring back Kashmiri's on the national map and make them realize that they are as good integral part of India as they used to be and are entitled to more concessions and privileges which they have been getting prior to the abrogation of Article 370&35A.The present government at the centre should always proceed with caution to avoid such situations in future so that need to impose Curfew like restrictions and snapping of Internet services and communication system for such a long period may not crop up /arise, he added. Now the urgent need of the hour is to withdraw Curfew like restrictions from the valley and free political leaders of mainstream parties of the state allowing them to maintain contact with the people for ensuring peace apart from lifting ban on Internet services and communication system in the state.
