Kashmir: where religion is used to conquer your mind
Kashmir, where Indian army runs special schools, medical camps, constructs roads, bridges, flood barriers, runs rescue operations, whenever and wherever state's corrupt and lethargic government machinery fails to deliver. Yet in Kashmir, Indian army faces anti-India slogans and stones from Kashmir's illiterate and educated, young and old, men and women. For long Kashmiri intellectuals and politicians blamed unemployment, development and Pakistan's interference for this hate, only to hide the reality and extract more money from Central Government. It is explained by fact that Jammu and Kashmir have received 10 percent of all Central grants given to states over the 2000-2016 period, despite having only one percent of the country’s population. In reality, successive state governments and central governments ignored “religion as a factor in the ethnic conflict”. They allowed religion to conquer the minds in schools, in mosques, at work, and everywhere else. They allowed funding of such activities, they allowed a creation of Jihadist groups and allowed their funding through different channels, mainly through fake currency printed in Pakistan and sent to Jihadist groups and madrasas through the hawala route and drug dealers. The second channel is donations from the Middle East and European countries which are deposited to different accounts in India. The third channel is through Dubai-based businessmen dealing in trade of carpets and handicrafts. The fourth channel is Zakat, a form of alms treated as a religious tax, and donations collected in the Kashmir Valley. The fifth channel is through India- Pakistan trade where Kashmiri businessmen over invoice agriculture export.
Kashmiri Jihadist groups were first allowed to harass, rape and kill minority Hindus forcing their final exodus in 1990, no action was ever taken to punish the culprits responsible for their killing and well documented human rights violation. The Jihadist mentality is emboldened when they are allowed to resist the return of aboriginals of Kashmir as per their wish. The government ignored the fact that “ethnic cleansing of Hindus in Kashmir” didn't end with the sacrifice of great Guru Shri Tegh Bahadur who was beheaded for resisting the forced conversion of Kashmiri Hindus to Islam by Mughal invader Aurangzeb. The Muslims in Kashmir had a great love for Hindus in Kashmir and vice versa, this was called Kashmiriyat, both shared same ancestors just a few generations back. The Jihadist network was allowed to destroy “KASHMIRIYAT”.
With access to unlimited funding, the Jihadist network managed to distort current facts about the state of Jammu and Kashmir (excluding the region illegally occupied by Pakistan and the region handed over by Pakistan to China). The general perception that Jihadist network has created looks like people of Jammu and Kashmir want freedom. Here are some basic facts about Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir:
There are 22 districts in Jammu and Kashmir, out of them Jihadist network has established a massive base in 5 districts Srinagar, Anantnag, Baramulla, Kulgam and Pulwama. The Jihadist network has failed to establish a base in other 17 districts and they never participate in protests announced by Jihadi leaders.
