Daring Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India, has killed a sacred cow, called Article 370 of the Constitution, enshrining the autonomy of Kashmir. The consequences could be dire, including the fourth India-Pakistan war, but not necessarily so. It could also be a successful scheme. Apparently, Narendra Modi had been encouraged by his success in recent elections, by his decent relations with the three powerful men of our age, Trump, Putin and Netanyahu; and by the rearmament and modernisation of India’s armed forces. So he decided to go for the root of the age-long Kashmir problem, instead of treating its symptoms, and terminate the special status altogether, giving the people of Kashmir the same rights as all Indian citizens have, not more, neither less.

Kashmir, a chain of pleasant green mountain valleys, was the most cherished patrimony of the Great Mughals, who embellished it with palaces and gardens. Here the Muslims and Hindus have lived together in peace and harmony. A blessed country, if there ever was one, Kashmir could flourish if this peaceful coexistence had survived. Alas, it did not. Frequent riots, separatism and imported Islamic extremism have made life difficult for everybody.

The Hindus were forced to leave Kashmir; many Muslims had left too, rather than having to serve the firebrand insurgents. Their empty, ruined or burned down houses still stick out in Srinagar and elsewhere, though many of the properties were sold for a song during the insurgency.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has likened the Indian government to Nazi Germany and said Hindu-majority India is planning “genocide” against people in the Muslim-majority Kashmir.The Pakistani prime minister expressed the outrage on Twitter on Sunday, a week after a fresh wave of tensions erupted between New Delhi and Islamabad over the Kashmir when the former scrapped the autonomy of the disputed region and assumed full control over it.
“The curfew, crackdown and impending genocide of Kashmiris in IoK [Indian-occupied Kashmir] are unfolding exactly according to RSS ideology inspired by Nazi ideology. Attempt is to change demography of Kashmir through ethnic cleansing. Question is: Will the world watch and appease as they did Hitler at Munich?” Khan said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today had a 30-minute telephonic conversation with US President Donald Trump -- a first since the government announced its decision on Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan's subsequent attempts to raise the issue in international forums and its Prime Minister's meltdown on Twitter. Besides bilateral issues, the two leaders discussed the regional situation, during which the Prime Minister "stated that extreme rhetoric and incitement to anti-India violence by certain leaders in the region was not conducive to peace," the government said.

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
