“Since we believe and understand that Kashmir dispute remains at the centre of the regional conflict, we appeal you to challenge the behaviour of Indian State in Jammu and Kashmir and urge it to stop this reign of terror,” they said.

“In the interests of regional peace and global justice we once again implore you to intervene and prevail upon the Indian state to shun violence and initiate processes for granting universally recognised Right to Self Determination to the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” the separatists said in a memorandum addressed to the UN.

As its proposed march to the local office of the United Nations Military Observers Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) was foiled by authorities by imposing curfew in some parts and restrictions elsewhere, the separatist camp released the memorandum to media outlets in Srinagar.

      Kashmir is an unfinished issue. Struggle,pain is only for common men in Kashmir's. Neither India nor stan interested in this generation for 70 years and still war waging against them. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;United Nation is only a doll in the hands of America. How many killed in Kashmir is not a question and no body knows that. In my own understanding the heart of Kashmir is not with India. If it why lakshs of Indian soldiers still there and suppressing agitation of Kashmiri youth. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;This problem will not be solved. Either those people can migrate wherever they wish or be with India. Fighting,agitation,struggle only result of ruin of a new generation, Now it has been more than 90 days children without schooling and instead books in hand they have stones. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Very pathetic plight in reality we have seen in Kashmir. The mother who lost young kids, the wife tears tricolor coffin of her husband this has to end. The clear solution is that to go with resolution as per UN and there should be a plebiscite.

        Kashmir issue is never going to be solved. Those who dead is dead and yet again children in the streets with stones in hand can never give a change to the situation. lt;br/gt;UN will not intervene in its’ matter as it is part of India and Kashmir is India’s and stani’s. Both shared this land. lt;br/gt;25 person each one military man is at valley. Any move and agitation against the government could be controlled with iron fist. lt;br/gt;Better Kashmiri’s migrate in your own wish. World is so big and your freedom will not be oppressed. Indian force too show atrocities against Kashmiri people is a reality. But blaming the Military is not an option here, with rifles and stones once you aggressively approach the military man what else than can do except use of guns in their hand. They bound to protect the nation and 12 crore people’s aspiration.lt;br/gt;I have spoken with the Kashmiri on other side of the boundary POK. They too dream a free Kashmir. It means that no one is happy.lt;br/gt;At present India and stan is not a Europe to grant you freedom immediately. No one to loss the land. But if it is in Europe country you might have achieved your freedom. lt;br/gt;We share your pain Kashmiris. History tell us what Kashmir is and what the issue there was. Be calm and send your kids to school. Do not trouble their future.

            Frankly speaking Congress party should never come to power as the leaders have no concern for the down trodden Indians. Muslims are just like Hindus, they are Indians and for that matter Indian Muslims should not even have a dream of having their wish imposed upon the majority of people of India. The BJP Prime Minister is a human being and there is a limit one will be able to tolerate provocative language being used by half cast "Indians". Politics can just not be anybody's cake . The days of misguiding by Congress are over and this time INDIANS will rise and totally wipe out CONGRESS. So if the other members of Congress want it to survive, for them the best solution is to clean up their party and start a fresh with INDIAN NATIONALISM and not FOREIGN NATIONALISM in the party leadership. The struggle is tough but nothing is impossible.

              The Muslim leaders like Nehru/Abdullah took the case to UN in order to gobble the JandK exclusively for Muslims in 1947. The UN is not an agency which promotes terror, India is not a banana republic to heed to the UN's decisions which doesn't serve the interests of the country, and this stan ISI agent needs to be imprisoned for life along with the Abdullahs in the JandK. The BJP/Modi's multi throng policy to contain/constrain the terror emanating from the Islamic stan is an intelligent strategy: lt;br/gt;1. Isolate stan - started with the boycott of the SAARC event held in stan with the full backing of Afghanistan, Bhutan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. lt;br/gt;2. Trade sanctions - Suspend trade with stan in all facets of the commerce. lt;br/gt;3. Surgical strikes - Well planned, strategic surgical strikes in the POK. lt;br/gt;4. Expose stan terror to the world- Modi is seeking cooperation of the western countries to declare stan as a terror state.

                  Dum Hurriyat Conference they are going to UN to seeks intervention on Kashmir issue then they should first learn the UN Resolution on the Kashmir Issue.lt;br/gt;It says in short (and its in Order)lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;1) stan should withdraw its Troops (Triblemens ) from Jammu and Kashmir.lt;br/gt;2) India also has to withdraw its forces from JandK but has to keep enough troops in there so they can defend the JandK agents the stan any attack.lt;br/gt;3) Both this steps taken in effect then India should then appoint a Plebiscite Administrator nominated by the United Nations, who would have a range of powers including powers to deal with the two countries and ensure a free and impartial plebiscite in JandK.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;It means that to fulfill the first step Hurriyat Conference should go to stan to tell them to withdraw the troops from POK. I know they will not do that as they are getting lot off funds from across the border and will not want to cut that flow.

                      This anti-national stani supporter is under house arrest. How is he allowed to give press statements ????? Wrong to allow him to speak when the valley is returning to normalcy. Even if you people approach the un-worthy U N or the crooked U S A leaders, nothing will happen. India has learnt to do things on it's own, and not depend on Obama or the U N . Stay quietly or just get out of India.lt;br/gt; UNDERSTOOD ??????lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;t

                                    First India need to do is this separatist to be kicked out of our country. Than every thing will be fine. Innocent and illiterate people are working for easy money from them. Govt. must check fake currency in that state. Fake currency printed from stan is the strength of these separatists(terrorist).

                                      Why issue has become hot during last two and half years. Both Mahabooba a and BJP failed to win the hearts of Kashmir people. Pak appears to be moving as per predetermined path. Now one would like to ask why the government is not involving Opposition (Kashmir) in isolating separatists. But it appears all the legal political parties lost the confidence of People. History teaches us any amount of repression or military strength is going to win the hearts of Kashmir people. There should be a political solution to the problem. Obviously the people should be a party to the political solution. Of course India can afford any amount of sacrifice being very big from potion point of view and strength, but that will be a "Ravana Kastam". Simply throughing out all the voices of dissent is not going to serve the Indian cause.

                                        Why don't India charge these separatis with treason,as their demand would only allow the enemy closer to the capital, making them want to export their terrorism and the poor way of life in india.If they want to be part of stan, let them move out there, see how they get treated there.Its time to sort the enemies out now, strike with so much might, it will show the world india cannot be scared ..perhaps India should retake the w of stan,,,nn ignore that, its a dump..

                                          Naturally, geographically Kashmir belong to India. Radical Religion is making unrest in Kashmir. Pak should not support separate movement of Kashmir, Pak should be get out from all Kashmir. If they win, never peace will come in Kashmir because radical teaching and followers will lead more miserable life in the Kashmir valley like middle east countries. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The key to understanding this commandment is in the definition of the word “covet.” Two different Hebrew words are used in the pages condemning coveting (Exodus 20:17; Deuteronomy 5:21), and both mean “to lust after or to long for with great desire.” Since the commandments are given as “you shall not’s,” the desire in this case is for something that is not the property of the desirer and not rightfully his to long after. In this commandment, the Israelites are told not to lust after their neighbor’s possessions—his house, land, ox or donkey, or the people in his life—his wife or servants, both male and female. The Israelites were not to desire, long for, or set their hearts on anything that belonged to anyone else. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Whereas several of the commandments prohibit certain actions, such as murder and theft, this is one of the commandments that address the inner person, his heart and mind. As James 1:15 tells us, the inner person is where sin originates, and in this case, covetousness is the forerunner of all manner of sin, among them theft, burglary, and embezzlement. At its root, coveting is the result of envy, a sin which, once it takes root in the heart, leads to worse sins. Jesus reiterated this very thought in the Sermon on the Mount when He said that lust in the heart is every bit as sinful as committing adultery (Matthew 5:28). Envy goes beyond casting a longing glance at the neighbor’s new car. Once dwelled upon, envy of the neighbor’s possessions can turn to feelings of resentment and hatred for the neighbor himself. That can turn into resentment against God and questioning Him: “Why can’t I have what he has, Lord? Don’t you love me enough to give me what I want?” lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;God’s reasons for condemning covetousness are good ones. At its very core, envy is love of self. Envious, selfish citizens are unhappy and discontented citizens. A society built of such people is a weak one because envious malcontents, as stated before, will be more likely to commit crimes against one another, further weakening the societal structure. Furthermore, the New Testament identifies covetousness as a form of idolatry, a sin which God detests (Colossians 3:5). In the end, envy and covetousness are Satan’s tools to distract us from pursuing the only thing that will ever make us happy and content—God Himself. God’s Word tells us that “godliness with contentment is great gain” and that we should be content with the basic necessities of life (1 Timothy 6:6-8), because true happiness is not attained by things, but by a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. By this alone do we gain that which is worthy, true, solid, satisfying, and durable—the unsearchable riches of God’s grace.

                                            Time to revoke Indian citizenship of these Islamist agents and push them across the border between Sunni west Punjab and POK and shoot them at sight if they try to sneak back into India. Let them stay at Sunni west Punjab and do whatever agitation they want. That was what agreed upon in 1947 division of India. Even better is let them go to Baloochistan and first deserving Baloochistan in their freedom which is based on sound logic and historical facts. Let us see army dropping their bodies from helicopters....
