  • Kashmir Has Zero Rate of Crime Against Tourists

    February 24

    Despite the portrayal of Kashmir in a certain light by sections of the elite Media, Kashmir according to an official data is the safest heaven for tourists.

    According to official statistics, attack on Amarnath pilgrims remains the sole incident where they tourists were subjected to any violence.

    The director of the tourism department in Kashmir, M A Shah said that attack on Amarnath yatris was an “isolated incident to scare away visitors” and such attempts will not succeed.

    Data reveals that Jammu Kashmir is the only state in the country which has zero crime record against tourists and it registered one lakh foreign tourist footfall in 2017, while the number of domestic tourists crossed 1 crore.

    "There have been sections of media who have wanted to portray Kashmir in a negative light to satisfy their nationalist agenda," Nihakrika Singh told The Kashmiriyat.

    Official data also reveals that during the civilian uprisings of 2008, 10 and 2016 there has been no violence against tourists, infact cross sections of the society have been engaged in ensuring their safety.

    Kashmir also has lately emerged as the safest travelling destination for women.

  • FEBRUARY 23, 53 Women were raped by Government Forces in Kunan Poshpora

    February 23

    ON FEBRUARY 23, 1991, Kunan and Poshpora, the twin villages in North Kashmir became the spot of mass rape of 53 women and sexual torture of men by the Indian Government Forces.

    The alleged criminals have escaped justice and Indian governments have refused to even acknowledge the horror despite the victims recording their statements in the courts as well as knocking every door for justice.

    The Army raided the village and the men of the villages were confined to a few rooms and tortured the entire night and then the Minor girls, those dumb and deaf, the physically handicapped, and the pregnant women were not spared either.Mothers were raped in front of their daughters. Grandmothers and their granddaughters were raped in the same room. The survivors said that they had bite marks on their chests, everywhere on their body, even on their hips. Many of them described bleeding from the mouth, from their private parts and from other injuries.

    One of the survivors in her statement to the police given in March 1991, narrated to that she heard a knock on the door at 11 p.m. As the door was opened army men barged in and took her husband and brother-in-law with them. Some remained behind and searched the house. As they found nothing “objectionable” they caught hold of her and raped her.

    “They were having liquor while raping me. My children screamed but there was no one to help me”. She fainted and only regained consciousness in the morning. Her husband and her brother-in-law too returned in the morning. Her brother-in-law was bleeding and was in a critical condition. Some days later, the police came to record her statement along with the Deputy Commissioner. She handed over her clothes as evidence. They were provided medical treatment, she states. She also recollects that she saw police constables with the army that night but says that, “they could not help me. They had themselves been beaten by army men”.

    All houses had similar stories, some concerning one or two and some concerning entire households of women.

    Many of them told us that the minor teenaged girls who were in the house were also raped, but that they collectively decided not to mention their names to the police.

    In many of the statements, the survivor mentions only her own name or that of married relatives. Often they mention that all the “vulnerable” women other than themselves were away from the house that night, perhaps to protect them.

  • 280 Local youths have joined militants in the Last 3 Years

    February 13

    More young people are taking up arms in violence-hit Himalayan region of Jammu Kashmir, which has been the reason of three wars between Asian Nations, India and Pakistan since their independence in 1947.

    State government data released on February 0 7 revealed that an increase of more than 40 percent in local youths joining militant ranks to fight Indian forces.

    Some 280 local youths have joined militants in the last three years, with 126 joining in 2017, 88 in 2016 and 66 in 2015.

    These numbers are higher in comparison to the previous years of  2014, when 53 Kashmiri youths took up militancy, with just 16 in 2013, 21 in 2012, 23 in 2011 and 54 in 2010.

    The Indian government claims that militants fighting Indian forces in Kashmir sneak in from Pakistan and the Pakistan-administered part of Kashmir aided by Pakistan — an allegation Pakistan has consistently denied.

    The idea of ‘Shahdat’ (Martyrdom) has been romanticized in Kashmir added to lack of political opportunities to resolve one of the longest standing dispute that youth are luring to the former idea.

    The region has witnessed a 30-year armed insurgency to free it from Indian rule witnessed a new wave of uprising after a local militant, Burhan Wani was shot dead by Government Forces on July 8, 2016. The following five months of violence claimed 90 lives and injured 11,000.

    The Home Ministry has asked Jammu and Kashmir state to formulate a surrender policy for militants and provide the young men with an economic rehabilitation program to bring them back to the mainstream, as per media reports.

    At least 450 people, including civilians, militants and armed forces, were killed in the state last year, said a report by the Jammu and Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society released in January. The killings of civilians were the highest ever recorded, it said.

    By official records, an average of 1,500 people have been killed each year over the last 30 years in Kashmir, compared with the annual average of 1,200 killed in the Israeli-Palestine conflict since 1920.

    Thanks for your post right here. One thing I would really like to say is that often most professional areas consider the Bachelors Degree just as the entry level requirement for an online degree. Even though Associate Certifications are a great way to get started on, completing your own Bachelors starts up many doors to various employment opportunities, there are numerous internet Bachelor Course Programs available through institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another issue is that many brick and mortar institutions provide Online editions of their qualifications but typically for a greatly higher amount of money than the providers that specialize in online education plans.
