Congress jumps on to NC bandwagon, demands talks with Hurriyat
Jammu, Ladakh ignored

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Nov 23: The Congress, it seems, will not feel the pulse of the nation in general and people of Jammu and Ladakh in particular. The latest stand taken by the Congress both anti-Jammu and Ladakh and out and out Hurriyat-centric and everyone knows that Hurriyat leaders do not have an independent approach and that they have been dancing to the tunes of Islamabad, Rawalpindi and terrorists like Lashkar chief Hafiz Saeed, who on Wednesday was allowed to walk free on the spurious ground that there was no proof that proved his involvement in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks and other terror-related activities.
The statement made by Sonia Gandhi's right hand man and former Minister of External Affairs Salman Khurshid's has left none in any doubt that the Congress stands for a compromise of the Indian stand on Jammu & Kashmir and that it considers the class of traitors in Kashmir as the most important factor in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. He has said not to talk to the Hurriyat leaders and not to resolve the Kashmir issue would be mean the negation of what he called the "Idea of India".
"The problem of Kashmir (read problem in Kashmir) is intrinsically linked to the idea of India and if we can't ensure that a resolution is found for Jammu and Kashmir then the idea of India will be imperiled and irretrievably challenged," Salman Khurshid said in Delhi while speaking at an event organized by his own Hind Bhartiyam Foundation (HBF).
Among others who spoke at the event included Wajahat Habibullah, a former IAS officer of the Jammu and Kashmir cadre, and Air Vice Marshal (Retd) Kapil Kak. "My plea to the interlocutor Dineshwar Sharma will be to reach out to all sections. The point is that he (Sharma) must reach out and I would plead there must be a response (from the Hurriyat leadership)," Wajahat Habibullah said, adding that the irony is that the person who had shown the way in overcoming the cycle was in fact the last head of the last NDA government and that he announced that the resolution will come through 'insaaniyat'.
He was referring to former PM Vajpayee's Insaniyat, Jamjuooriyat and Kashmiriyat doctrine.
As for Kapil Kak, he asked: "Why the government or the interlocutor had not opened communication channels with the separatists yet?"
"There is no communication with the Hurriyat Conference either from the Government of India or the interlocutor. The government should be more sincere. I don't see a mandate (for the dialogue process), don't see a timeframe by when there should be a report," Kapil Kak said.
It is important to note that both Wajahat Habibullah and Kapil Kak are members of the group which is headed by senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha. The very fact that the Congress' Salman Khurshid and Habibullah and Kak have come on the one stage only suggests that the Congress is for a compromise on Jammu & Kashmir.
Why don't they realize that Kashmir is a small part of the state and Jammu and Ladakh are also there who have their own aspirations. The lop-sided approach didn't help resolve problem in Kashmir in the past and it will not help the so-called Kashmir experts Kashmir in the future. They have to change their approach.
