  • World always support the truth.So,whole world is by their side even though Pakistan is trying to put false allegation against India.

  • Suhail Murtaza says:

    Thank you NBC . "Is anyone talking to Kashmiri peoples" the answer is NO Thanks for acknowledging the problem and no one is talking to Us, what do we want there is a Blackout in Kashmir i have not talked to my parents since this nerve wrecking action was taken.its called new age DESPOTISM

  • Last statement that was made by lady saying Kashmir is better than Gujarat is false

  • The jihad apologist says, democracy means 'allow people to decide what they want', yet the Northern states went to war to preserve the union! The demand that India simply roll over and allow a jihadi rump statelet in Kashmir is preposterous and completely unacceptable. For the safety of religious and ethnic minorities in the Kashmir valley, its imperative that Kashmir is integrated fully with the Indian union.

  • That woman is a hypocrite, she didn't told about discrimination against women. She is talking about secularism but didn't pointed about hindus displaced. I wonder why these pseudo seculars are brought to discussion.

  • Himanshu Bhatt says:

    Kashmiri Muslims still refuse to cooperate with India because other Indians are mainly Hindus.
    Islamists brought this upon themselves.

  • It is simple solution
    Kashmiris want freedom from India and India wants Kashmir without Kashmiris
    That is why brutal curfew and blockade of vital services is to choke Kashmiris

  • Pakistan pays 500rs to Kashmiris to throw rocks at indian soldiers despite knowing the risks. The only kashmiri pakistan cares about is a dead kashmiri.
    Pakistan is stuck with a business minded army that can't fight wars and nukes it can't use so it resorts to jihadist terror subconventional warfare using terror groups, namely JeM and LeT. In fact, pakistan kashmir is merely a petting zoo for extremists and a launching bad for jihadists into foreign soil.

    What would happen if..say a U.S. citizen threw rocks at a police officer much less a soldier? …it wouldn't be pretty….

  • infant mortality rate, maternal mortality rate, expenditure on health per capita..
    literacy rate
    employment rates
    plus – no of homeless in J&K is nil.
    Crime rate indices

    i will not share figures…. check these and you will know – Kashmir is in a far better position. be it health, economy or any other index.

  • Basically the kashmiris are not protesting peacefully. Otherwise why would army be needed. All these years there were Pakistani trained terrorists and local terrorist. They want to separate kashmir.. and now they will try to disturb as this is their last chance. Unfortunately the kashmiri politicians were corrupt and porkistan feels it has some birth right over kashmir while their own oppressed communities are protesting

  • M.Faisal Siddiqui says:

    WORLD must visit Kashmir and show reality of shameless racist indian govt. Internationally recognized disputed territory which india Govt signed and agreed in 1948. Reality cannot be hide by Brutal Racist India govt. Racist Indian Govt Internally betrayed human rights and Breached UN resolutions and kicked UN resolutions in dustbin. We are Pakistani and we will be Pakistani. Kashmir is Pakistan. Curfew from more than 20 days. Mobile, internet everything is shut down.

  • Kashmir did make it's own laws. A few examples.

    1. Islamic state. Not secular.
    2. No equal rights to women. Limited land rights.
    3. Lower castes only allowed to be sweepers and sanitary work. By law.
    4. No free access to education
    5. Businesses not allowed to buy land. Not just individuals.
    6. No minority protection to Hindus, Budhist and others.
    7. Hindu genocide in 90's chanhed demographic. Noone punished.
    8. No anti corruption agency. Corruption systemic.

    Kashmir was never going to improve. 370 ensured it. So politicians and terrorist hold people to ransom. Kashmir does better than rest of India is just a bogus claim.

    Now, Kashmir is equal.
