Uprooting “SAFFRON UPRISING”

For those looking answers for “SAFFRON UPRISING” or their uprooting by PSEUDO WARS and claiming “WAR IS PEACE”:
Here are some food for  thoughts:
When a society inculcates beliefs over a long period of time, those beliefs cannot be changed by a forceful imposition of others. The beliefs once practiced overtly continue to be held covertly. Force is never an effective instrument of conversion. Martyrdom is preferable to surrender, and even promises of a better future are ineffective.
So what did the Covert War really accomplish? 1984GENOCIDE?
It united a nation without uniting its people. The INDIA became one nation indivisible made up of two disunited peoples; it became a nation divided, and the division has spread.
Therein lies a lesson all nations should have learned. By the force of arms, you can compel outward conformity to political institutions and their laws, but you cannot change the antagonistic attitudes of people, that can remain unchanged for decades and longer waiting for opportunities to reassert themselves.
Any astute reader can apply this lesson to the present day’s activities in the Kashmir. Neither force nor promises of a future better than the past can win the hearts and minds of people. And soldiers who die in an attempt to change another people’s values always die in vain.
All wars, even when carried on by the strongest of nations against weak opponents, are chancy, and their costs, in every respect, are always much more than anticipated, even putting aside the physical destruction and the lives lost.
Nations that have started wars with the psychological certainty of winning rarely have, and when they have, the results were rarely lasting or those sought. As Gandhi once observed, “Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary.”
The Crusaders, fighting under the banner of Christ, could not make Palestine a part of Christendom. France, under Napoleon, conquered most of Europe but lost it all and Napoleon ended up a broken man. Prussian militarism prevailed in the Franco-Prussian War, but in less than a century Germany had lost all. The Austrians in 1914 could not only not subdue the Serbs, the empire and its monarchial form of government were lost. The Germans and Japanese after 1939 and astounding initial successes were reduced to ruin.
But even the winners are losers.
Americans won the Mexican War and acquired the southwestern United States, but that conquest brought with it unfathomable and persistent problems—racial prejudice, discrimination, and an irresolvable problem of immigration and border insecurity. Americans likewise won the falsely justified Spanish American war and acquired a number of colonial states but were unable to hold most of them. The allies won the Second World War, but France and England lost the colonies they were fighting to preserve, and these two powers, which were great before the war, were reduced to minor status (although both still refuse to admit it). Israel has won five wars against various Arab states since 1948, but its welfare and security have not been enhanced, and Arab hatred and intransigence has grown more common.
People need to realize that after a war, things are never the same as they were before, and that even the winners rarely get what they fight for. War is a fool’s errand in pursuit of ephemera.
At the end of World War II, American leaders wrongly assumed that America’s superpower status gave it the means to impose its view of what the world should be like on others everywhere. Then came Korea and the assumption proved false. Despite all of the destruction and death inflicted on the North Koreans, their attitudes went unchanged. The lesson went unlearned. It went unlearned again in Viet Nam, after which Henry Kissinger is reported to have naively said, “I could not believe that a primitive people had no breaking point.” The Vietnamese never broke.
“SAFFRON UPRISING” in BURMA was crushed by WAR&Violence.
The Burmese junta and its 77-year-old leader, General Than Shwe, could be investigated over a number of alleged crimes during its rule including:
* The crushing of the August 1988 democracy uprising that led to the deaths of 3,000 to 6,000 people.
* Widespread ethnic cleansing of groups such as the Karen, which have been fighting for greater autonomy for half a century.
* The alleged use of forced labour to build pipelines and other infrastructure, torture and beatings, and the use of rape by Burma’s armed forces. Human Rights Watch says that such violations are widespread in Burma.
*The violent crackdown on the September 2007 “Saffron Uprising”, headed by Buddhist monks, which left scores of people dead.
Similar are the reports after 1984GENOCIDE.
Unfortunately, history teaches its lessons to only those willing to learn, and  OUR BROTHERS shows no signs of having such willingness.
“ARE WE PREPARED FOR NEXT GENOCIDE ?
You can’t prepare for something you  IGNORE”
Indian-Panjab region is bread-basket of INDIA and has India’s Minority Religion “SIKHS” < 2% of 1BILLION indians (yes, that is 1,000,000,000 number) already fighting for justice of  1984 GENOCIDE for more than 25 years, that left more than 5000 Sikhs [infants/kids/ women/men] brutally chopped/sliced/ slaughtered all-over india, wherein presence of radioactive URANIUM on grounds and water of India-punjab adds another level/dimension of concern for their future/safety in India-punjab.

Why “saffron uprising” by monks and peace lover,  seen as threat to the existing world order?
This seems like a repeat of HISTORY at BURMA war crimes?

Obama wants Burmese rulers to face UN war crimes investigation
US move reflects the failure of engagement with Rangoon

The administration of US President Barack Obama has decided to throw its crucial support behind moves to establish a special UN commission to investigate alleged war crimes perpetrated by the military rulers of Burma.
In what represents a marked rollback of one of President Obama’s most controversial foreign policy initiatives, US officials said Washington would now back the war crimes investigation, as urged earlier this year by the UN special rapporteur for human rights in Burma. Washington is also said to be considering tightening sanctions against the junta.
The decision represents a reversal of an initiative announced last year to try to develop closer diplomatic ties with Burma by establishing regular meetings involving a senior US official.

There was talk that a closer relationship could possibly be rewarded with a dilution or dropping of some sanctions. But reports suggest Washington believes its overtures to the military have largely been rebuffed, even though several meetings have been held.
There is also likely concern over continued reports – though none of them confirmed – that Burma is interested in developing a nuclear weapon.
“There have been no positive results on democracy and human rights in our diplomatic engagement,” one anonymous official told The Washington Post.
The decision by the US to back the tribunal, already supported by Britain and Australia, comes before elections in Burma on 7 November.
While the junta claims they will be a stepping-stone towards full democracy, most observers in the West have dismissed them, saying they will do little more than cement the position of the military.
Campaigners have argued the elections could not be considered fair while more than 2,100 political prisoners – among them an opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi – were still detained.
A total of about 40 parties have registered to participate in November’s elections, though many of them are groups led by former senior military officers who have taken off their uniforms for the process. The National League for Democracy, the party of Ms Suu Kyi, a Nobel laureate, voted not to participate, though a breakaway group has registered.
Activists yesterday welcomed the US decision. Aung Din, executive director of the Washington-based Campaign for Burma, said: “This is the right and timely action in response to the power thirsty and brutal generals, who are expecting to delete their dirty crimes by putting a sham constitution into effect through a sham election.
“This is a clear message that the United States will not recognise their showcase election and will make them accountable for their horrible abuses against their own citizens.”
Mark Farmaner, of the Burma Campaign UK, also supported the move but said it was essential the EU made a similar declaration. “The EU must end its silence on crimes against humanity in Burma, and publicly support a UN inquiry,” he said.
Pro-democracy and human rights groups have urged the United Nations Security Council to impose an arms embargo on the regime and establish a commission of inquiry into crimes against humanity.
They fear a humanitarian crisis may develop along the border with Thailand, where the Burmese military has been fighting ethnic Karens, pushing thousands of refugees across the border. Karen National Union fighters have been battling for half a century for greater autonomy from Burma’s central government.
The establishment of an independent tribunal to investigate war crimes is no small undertaking and has as much to do with geopolitics as with any offences that may have been committed. Many activists opposed to the 2003 invasion of Iraq have campaigned for Tony Blair and former US president George Bush to be charged with war crimes. In the case of Burma, five nations have so far supported an investigation. France is said to be one of several countries in the EU, along with Germany, Austria and Italy, that support a softer stance.
In March, the UN special rapporteur for Burma, Tomás Ojea Quintana, issued a report that was highly critical of the country’s human rights situation. Urging an investigation, he said there was evidence of mass killing, torture, forced displacement and rape.
The decision by the Obama administration followed a review of longstanding US policy towards Burma. Officials said they believed a policy of sanctions had, by itself, failed to bring about improvements in democracy and human rights.
Yet the move also underscored concern that Asian giants such as India and China, which have warm relations with Burma, were securing valuable oil and gas deals. Such relationships were also undermining the effectiveness of Western sanctions.
Reports suggest there are various options for setting up a commission of inquiry. According to Foreign Policy magazine, the US could introduce a resolution establishing such a commission before the UN Human Rights Council, which will convene next month.
Washington could also press the UN General Assembly to pass a resolution establishing it, or it could appeal to Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary general, to do it under his own authority. Such inquiries can often lead to war crimes prosecutions.

Many had asked, what is “PSEUDO NWO”?
This is a tricky question to answer since, present PSEUDO NWO in power shall
try to ensure that “Ignorance is Strength” and “War is peace”.
Actually, if we try to understand our historical facts we become awakened and realize, “just winning the war” is not the end of the story,
if PEACE is not restored in world.
i.e. period of 1945-1950 holds one of the key,
starting from WWII to Nuremberg Trials. Nuremberg trials was also referred to Victors-Trial.
Regardless it gave birth to new polarization of power. Further during the same period many new countries appeared on the face of EARTH.
This period of just 5 Years carved and paved way for future conflicts about to be seen later. Whatever we call some analyst believe that so called NWO has taken birth!
Why this New World Order was only a misnomer to NWO?
Again, history gives us the answer we don’t need rocket science to understand the facts. After formation of new collation of pseudo NWO world started to polarize into two.
Regardless, pseudo NWO had immense power and control over planet earth. This power and control could have been better used to bring PEACE and PROSPERITY to the world but that never happened. Instead on many occasion world became more and more complex and on the edge. On the edge of extinsion where one wrong pressing RED-BUTTON could engulf whole world
for next WORLD WAR |||.
Further, World witnessed many GENOCIDES and this pseudo NWO could do nothing except
be a mere suspectator. After genocides were committed this NWO could not punish the guilty on same forum/pattern “NUREMBERG” that was made-to-believe as international court of “TRUTH, JUSTICE & LIBERTY” and  world now have victory over all the evils of society e.g. genocides, human right violation, terrorism, poverty etc.etc.
One would expect that so-called NWO would be able to curtail if not CEASE GENOCIDE,
however, we have entirely opposite picture in current world.
Current Alerts
Sudan – Since the Bush Administration first recognized the genocide in Darfur, at least 250,000 more men, women, and children have died. Using its own military and the Janjaweed militia, Sudan’s regime has conducted a systematic campaign to kill and drive out Darfur’s ethnic Fur, Massalit, and Zhagawa peoples. Supported by aircraft and helicopter gunships, the Janjaweed attack towns, villages, and refugee camps, kill the men and boys, rape the women and girls, and poison the wells. Their goal is to replace these African peoples with Arab herders.
Ethiopia – In September 2008, Genocide Watch declared a Genocide Warning regarding the war that was being waged against small ethnic minority called Burji in a town of Hagre Mariam by an ethnic Oromo group called Guji. Since then the Guji Oromo have continued to wage protracted war against Burji in various localities, especially in towns and villages surrounding the city of Soyama,  which is 60 Km west of the city of Hagremariam.  Over the course of the last several months there have been heavy loss of lives and damage to Guji properties including destruction of crops and farm equipment.  In January 2009, there were reports of heavy fighting on three different fronts, namely Nadale/ Chuluse front and Gara and Tisho vicinities. News from Hagremariam stated that Guji Oromo warriers were advancing towards Soyama in great numbers.   According to Genocide Watch sources, Guji/Oromo attacks on Buji began on January 22, 2009.   The situation is continues to be dire, and urgent action must be taken to avert further attacks.
Chad – BBC News reports that “Chad’s government has accused Sudan of ‘exporting the genocide’ in Darfur across the border,” while the New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof writes “Over the past week, Sudan has sponsored a full-scale invasion of Chad, seeking to oust Chad’s president and replace him with the warlord who has overseen the murder, rape and pillage in those border areas. Sudan seems determined to extend its genocide to Chad, and the upshot is that the catastrophe of Darfur may now be multiplied manyfold.”
Zimbabwe – Genocide is a process and not an event. The Mugabe regime has committed genocide before and it has begun the genocidal process again. Beginning on May 19, 2005, Operation Murambatsvina (“Operation Drive out the Filth”), having already left 700,000 homeless, and directly impacting the lives of a further 2.4 million, is the most recent manifestation of the Mugabe/ZANU-PF’s systematic progression toward a governmental policy of overt mass murder.
Burma/Myanmar – Burma, Southeast Asia’s most oppressed nation, remains under the forty-three year tyranny of a military junta and should be a grave concern to the international community. Abuse of ethnic minorities, mass rape of women, mandatory relocations, extrajudicial state executions, military recruitment of children, and forced labor are only a few of the many violations of human rights currently practiced in the resource rich but economically impoverished nation.1 The regime change of 2004 which deposed General Khin Nyunt in favor of Lieutenant General Soe Win continues to suppress the strong movement for democracy, keeping Burma in a cyclical state of tyranny.
Uzbekistan – Six years ago, a series of bombs exploded in the administrative center of Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan. That same day, President Islam Karimov stated that “in order to save peace and calm in the republic,” he was willing to sacrifice the lives of a few. Although the context of his declaration implies that he is referring to terrorists, the subsequent arrests of more than 7,000 Uzbeks reveal that the president’s perception of a national threat actually means anyone who disputes his absolute authority. Genocide Watch has concluded that the government of Uzbekistan is using the real threat of Islamic extremism as a pretext for silencing popular expressions of discontent.
Kenya – Genocide Watch has called a Genocide Alert because of genocidal massacres that are increasing daily in Kenya in the wake of a disputed election between President Mwai Kibaki, who is a member of the Kikuyu ethnic group, and Mr. Raila Odinga, who is ethnically a Luo. Ethnic riots have broken out in Nairobi, Kisumu, Eldoret, and numerous other places in Kenya. People have been pulled from their cars and their identification cards checked for their names, which symbolize their ethnic identity, and then killed if they belong to groups being targeted. Hundreds of people have already been murdered. Today a church in Eldoret was locked and the people inside were burned to death by a mob.
Ethnic massacres are an indicator that the risk of genocide in Kenya has risen to Stage 6, the Preparation stage.Kenya has not yet descended into actual genocide. However, the next stage in the process is actual genocide, and Kenya is close to that stage.
Burundi- The people of Burundi have been confronted with war, genocide, economic decline and tyranny for over five decades.  At least two major genocides have occurred since independence in 1962.  In 1972, the Tutsi army murdered a whole generation of young, educated, and prosperous Hutus, a genocide that cost at least 150,000 lives.  1993-1995 brought a deluge of mass murders of both Hutus and Tutsis, culminating in a civil war that cost 300,000 lives.
Apart from above, gross human right violations is destabilizing world along with terrorism.
In closing, I would only like to add that perhaps much feared WW III is what appears to be
on horizon due to approaching time-line.
Now it remains to be seen that would World War III bring-out REAL NWO?
Well, while world works out how to tackle WW-III
,
minorities are working out for their peace and prosperity and how to safe-guard
their identity?
How minorities can prepare for or avert next possible GENOCIDE?
Again for those who believe that by year 2012 the world would end,
I would only like to say that what they call as “End of Beginning” I perceive it as “Beginning of END”.
“Beginning of END” OF PSEUDO NWO (New World Order).

The angry housewives setting Kashmir ablaze
By Soutik BiswasBBC News, Srinagar
Women have joined protests in large numbers
Whenever there are protests demanding “freedom from India” in her crowded neighbourhood in Srinagar, Firdousi Farooq makes a point of participating, her four-year-old son in tow.
Joining such demonstrations in Indian-administered Kashmir these days is fraught with risks.
Security forces have often fired on stone-pelting protesters, killing over 50 people, mostly teenagers, in the past two months as the valley has been convulsed by what most locals call a fierce peoples’ “uprising” against India.
So what makes a mother of three hit the angry streets of Kashmir?
Ms Farooq’s eldest son, Wamiq, was killed in January when a tear gas shell fired by the police exploded on his head.
The 14-year-old top-of-the-class student, who loved watching cartoons and dreamed of becoming a doctor, had stepped out for a game of cricket.
The police report describes him as a “miscreant who was part of an unlawful assembly”, at which the forces had fired tear gas shells in self-defence.
Very few – including his neighbours, lawyers and journalists – believe this.
‘Subjugation’
Sitting in her home in the crowded old city, Ms Farooq says she had decided to hit the streets after her son’s “murder”.
“Why should I not protest? Why should I not pick up a stone? I am doing this in the honour of my martyred son. I am doing this for azadi (freedom) from subjugation and repression,” she says defiantly.
Firdousi Farooq is just another addition to the burgeoning army of women who have been taking part in the protests in Kashmir this summer.
You see them on the streets; you see them in the pictures.
Young and old, middle-class and poor, mostly dressed in floral tunics, they defy the armed forces, pelting stones at them, shouting slogans and singing anti-India songs. When night falls, some of them even lead protests with their children.
Out of more than 50 people killed in the latest round of violence, three have been women.
Ms Farooq joined protests after her son was killed
Yasmeen Jan, 25, was standing near a window inside her house in Batamaloo on 6 July, watching a demonstration wind by when she was hit by a bullet allegedly fired by security forces.
“Mummy maey aaw heartas fire” (Mummy, my heart has taken fire), she told her mother, turning away from the window, before collapsing on the floor, dead.
Fifteen-year-old Afroza Teli took a bullet in her head during a protest demonstration in Khrew village in Pulwana district on 1 August. She died later in Srinagar.
Angry Kashmiris set fire to an irrigation office, a revenue office and a court building after her death. A police station and a police vehicle were also set on fire.
Aisha Shiekh, a 55-year-old housewife and resident of Srinagar, was allegedly hit by a stone flung from a sling shot by the security forces when she was walking with her granddaughter to buy milk on 7 August. She died from her wounds a day later.
This is not the first time that women in Kashmir have come out in droves to protest, but their numbers and impact appear to be greater than ever before.
“This time the intensity of protests by women is more. You can also see more women protesting. Women have borne the brunt of the Kashmir conflict, and it is not surprising that they are at the end of their tether,” says Kashmiri journalist Afsana Rashid.
Rape
As Bashir Ahmed Dabla, who teaches sociology at Kashmir University says, Kashmir’s women have “seen their children husbands and fathers being killed in the conflict, and routinely humiliated by the security forces”.
Women have borne the brunt of the conflict
Studies have shown there are up to 32,000 widows of the two-decade-long conflict in the Kashmir valley, and nearly 100,000 orphans. Another 10,000 men have allegedly disappeared during the conflict, says a rights group.
Then there are some 400 “half-widows”, whose husbands disappeared in the custody of troops or police. Women have also been the target of rape by the security forces.
“Women have been compelled to come out and protest because of the injustice and repression,” says Professor Dabla.
Parveena Ahangar, a softly spoken housewife turned feisty activist, has been making a regular trek from her Gangbugh residence to the city’s downtown every month, to protest against the disappearances during the conflict.
Ms Ahangar’s son Javed was 16 when he was picked up by security forces in 1990 from the family home. He never returned.
The indefatigable woman has travelled around the world to highlight her cause, leaving behind her husband, debilitated and out of work after 10 surgeries, and her remaining three children, including a daughter.
“As long as I am alive, my struggle with go on. I want a simple answer from the authorities: Where did these men go?”
The coming out of women in the Muslim-dominated Kashmir valley has been helped by the fact that they have been traditionally freer than their counterparts in many parts of the world.
They have not observed the purdah, or faced religious or cultural segregation from men, say sociologists. Men and women have always worked in the farms together, prayed side by side in mosques and participated in religious congregations.
Key role
They have traditionally played an important role in the neighbourhood citizens’ committees, preparing food for their protesting menfolk and taking the injured to hospitals.
Women have led night protests in Kashmir
The pro-freedom movement has also thrown up a number of women leaders – both fundamentalists and liberals.
“Kashmiri women are among the most politicised women in the subcontinent,” says Professor Dabla.
Zaitun Khan, a 20-something homemaker, is one of them – she remembers participating in “peaceful” protests when she was in college, but is now determined to hit the streets to demand freedom.
Her brother Fayaz Ahmed Wani, who worked as a labourer in the floriculture department of the government, was hit by a bullet fired by the forces and killed while on his way to work on 6 July.
Mr Wani was 29, and left behind his wife and two daughters.
“I will go and join the protests now,” says Ms Khan.
“He never protested or threw a stone in his life. But he died. How many more men will have to die?
I want to go out and protest and demand freedom. Freedom to live.”
History in making or  what, whole world is watching  Kashmir
Why Kashmir now not ready for anything less than “FREEDOM”?
In an attempt to understand plight of minorities, lets delve a little deeper for new paradigm shift in our thinking.
“Under the partition plan provided by the Indian Independence Act of 1947, Kashmir was free to accede to India or Pakistan.
The Maharaja, Hari Singh, wanted to stay independent but eventually decided to accede to India, signing over key powers to the Indian government – in return for military aid and a promised referendum.”  à http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10537286
If we try to understand recent 3 months massive civilian protests, we can better understand that this is not going to fizzle-out soon, as in past. One thing that any every government should realize, they can only attain few year of lifeline with BULLETS. Past five years has seen unprecedented deaths of protesters in Kashmir by BULLETS, at the end of the day, matter is still not resolved?
What baffles GOI, How could Kashmir situation spiral out of hands?
If this is considered in-hands, GOI has always been able to calm the situation with carrot and stick approach in past but now situation is different. Kashmiries in past/last 5 decades have only asked for free-fair election under UN supervision, that never happened.
Kashmiri-es now firmly believe that there is no hope and scope for MINORITIES in INDIA. MINORITIES in india by-an-large believe, that they are treated like SLAVES and third-class-citizens and india has CARROT and STICK approach towards MINORITIES.
One of biggest blot/blunder INDIA committed and india still don’t admit is 1984 GENOCIDE on SIKHS (minority religion of india <1.5% of billion indians) have suffered great ordeal since india’s independence 1947. Whereas this same minority religion “SIKHS” contributed more than 80% for india’s independence are now facing their own “Safely/future in indian-panjab” as they have not gotten justice for over 25 years, not a single person found guilty by india’s justice system for 1984 GENOCIDE, what more can you expect for minorities?
What minorities want is that their voice be heard not silenced by oppressive BULLETS.
INDIA precedence of recognizing MINORITIES and protecting them, failed at COLOSSAL SCALE.
For instance:
As erstwhile sovereigns of Punjab, the Sikhs—who constituted about 1.1 percent of the population of British-India[26]—played a disproportionate role in the struggle to free the subcontinent of British colonialism.  The table below summarizes the Sikh contribution in the freedom movement.  The data reflects Sikhs serving prison sentences, being deported to nearby islands in exile, facing capital punishment and enlisting themselves in the Indian National Army that was organized to oppose the British.

However, 1984 GENOCIDE rewarded SIKHS with long-life scar and wound and that they are not required anymore in INDIA, since their sacrifice and contribution is now too old to register.  Also worth noting is the fact that till 1984 sikhs in “Independent India” army constituted 60% total strength while still remaining minority religion < 2% of total Indians.
What excuse India has for 1984 GENOCIDE – indra’s assassination?

The Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act, commonly known as TADA, was an Indian law active between 1985 and 1995 (modified in 1987) for the prevention of terrorist activities in Punjab. It was renewed in 1989, 1991 and 1993 before being allowed to lapse in 1995 due to increasing unpopularity due to widespread allegations of abuse.[1] The Act’s third paragraph gives a very thorough definition of “terrorism”
While SIKHS/Minorities of INDIA firmly believe:
Terrorists and terrorism is wrong and their is no place for terrorism but anti-terror laws should be about stopping terrorists not ethnic cleansing minorities like 1984 GENOCIDE. Sikhs are being ethnic cleans under the name of anti terror laws of Hindu India. These laws are specially designed to attack the Sikh identity and force Hinduism into the Sikh Nation.
It is estimated that during the decade of 80’s and 90’s 2.50-3.00 million SIKHS lost their lives.
“The truth often hurts however that does not make it any less true” – Mick Hodd
The fact of the matter still remains fact, PANJAB was last province/sovereign independent state, British Empire (UK) merged into INDIA for better and central control of their east colonial empire.
In-fact pro-patriotic INDIANS on every independence day make mockery of British Empire and term and label them as LOOTERS of INDIA, don’t   fully understand and recognize that UK gave that everything that INDIA feels proud today (60+ years after independence).
UK gifted/gave India, operational and well-connected railways/post-system/education/central control of resources/constitution and justice-system however justice-system/constitution was amended again-n-again to suit majority religion/community and deprive minorities of their rights.
What’s more to add that UK/British-Empire gave south-asian dwellers one UNITED INDIA that was only seen on international map in the beginning of 18th CENTURY. However PAKISTAN and BANGLADESH choose to be out of this united India.
What current independent India has fermented is SUPER CORRUPTION again of . COLOSSAL SCALE that was almost next to none during UK/British-Empire rule on INDIA.
Therefore, Kashmiries now firmly believe that minority community/religion in INDIA shall always be persecuted and HUMAN RIGHTS in INDIA don’t EXIST they all have been SHUNNED-OUT of INDIA and now INDIA is after UNSC seat that shall give them ABSOLUTE POWER!
RUSSIA india’s long-time partner and bosom friend has unconditional YES for INDIAs UNSC. Bear-in-mind that this present RUSSIA was a.k.a USSR during beginning of long-term-RUSSIA-INDIA partnership in 1980’s.
Now all eyes on US decision awaited by NOV2010 for INDIAs UNSC, if yes, then we have 2012 in making or what?
Again for those who believe that by year 2012 the world would end, I would only like to say that what they call as “End of Beginning” I perceive it as “Beginning of END”.
“Beginning of END” OF PSEUDO NWO (New World Order).

Is this history in making or what?

Kashmir separatists reject autonomy offer
(AFP) – 2 hours ago
SRINAGAR, India — Separatist leaders in Indian Kashmir dismissed Wednesday overtures from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh about political autonomy in the region following months of anti-India unrest.
Appealing to Kashmiri Muslims to “give peace a chance”, Singh had said Tuesday that his government would consider any consensus proposal for autonomy as long as it remained “within the ambit” of the constitution.
He also announced the creation of a panel of experts that would draw up a “jobs plan” for Indian Kashmir where rampant unemployment — especially among young people — has fuelled resentment against Indian rule.
But senior Kashmir separatists rejected Singh’s initiative.
“Our fight is for independence, not autonomy,” Javed Mir, a former militant commander turned separatist politician, told AFP.
“We will continue our fight for our goal through peaceful protests,” said Mir, who had been among the first Kashmiris to take up arms in 1989 when frustration against Indian rule boiled over into a full-blown insurgency.
Under the terms of its accession to India in 1947 — after independence from Britain and the sub-continent’ s division — Kashmir was granted a relatively high degree of autonomy, excluding areas like defence and foreign affairs.
But those powers have been eroded over the years, and renewed promises of greater autonomy gain little traction in separatist circles.
“Our struggle is not for restoration of autonomy. It is to seek our right to self-determination, ” Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, an influential moderate separatist and Muslim cleric, told AFP.
“We should be allowed to decide whether we want to remain with India, accede to Pakistan or carve out an independent state,” he said.
Kashmir is divided between nuclear-armed rivals India and Pakistan, which both claim the region in full and have fought two wars over their territorial dispute.
The Kashmir legislative assembly in 2000 passed a resolution favouring full restoration of the state’s autonomy, but it was rejected by the then Hindu-nationalist government in New Delhi.
Autonomy is the main demand of the ruling National Conference, the state’s biggest pro-India political party.

Subject: [1984genocide] ***** US court issues default certificate against….. … GENOCIDE *****
Many applauds for US, in taking “First Just Step” in right direction to at-least start identifying and  instigating accountability for 1984 Sikhs GENOCIDE. Of-couse we still have a long way to go before GROSS human right violators are put before international court of justice. Why international court  because in india, indian-courts can never do fair trial and justice to 1984 GENOCIDE victims, indian-courts are still trying to ascertain and gather proof of evidence of human-right- violation in 1984 GENOCIDE for over 25 YEARS, “amazing justice system in india, for minorities only”.
Also it has been commendable efforts of various justice-liberty- peace loving organizations working together and immense credit goes to Mr. Gurpatwant S Pannum.
On the flip side we find current india’s home minister released press note on Aug4, stating
their efforts on releasing funds after funds to compensate for 1984 GENOCIDE.
However, indian home minister fails to utter any words on 1984 GENOCIDE perpetrators.
Open questions: Why democratic india be more than glad to provide funds for 1984 GENOCIDE
but fail to bring justice to even one of  the 1984 GENOCIDE perpetrators?
– Should minorities in india take for granted that next GENOCIDE is around the corner?
– Perhaps appropriate funds have already been allocated to compensate for NEXT GENOCIDE by india?
– Why indian media/tv/news never put-up this question? or are they are blind-folded to
minorities in india?

The minister failed to respond to summons to him on a plea by Sikh group
A new York district court on Thursday issued a certificate of default declaring that Union Minister for Roadways Kamal Nath has failed to respond to the summons issued by the court earlier on April 6. This was stated by Gurpatwant S Pannun, legal advisor of Sikhs for Justice, an organisation which has filed the case against Nath.
Pannun said: “The US court issued a certificate of default against Indian Minister Kamal Nath because despite publicly acknowledging to have received the court summons on April 6, he ignored the summons and decided not to contest the allegation of leading the mobs that killed Sikhs in 1984. The certificate of default paves the way for the US court to grant all reliefs requested by Sikhs for Justice, a US-based non-profit national human rights advocacy group in their complaint.”
Nath was asked to file a response to the complaint filed by the NGO. Other plaintiffs in the pending lawsuit are Jasbir Singh, who lost more than 20 family members and Mohinder Singh, whose father was killed in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
The plea against the minister was filed under Alien Tort Claims Act (ATCA) and the Torture Victim Protection Act (TVPA) asking the US court to grant compensatory and punitive damages for Kamal Nath’s role in leading an armed mob which attacked Gurdwara Rakab Ganj in Delhi on November 1, 1984.
Pannun added: “The US court will now issue its judgment based on the submissions of the NGO. We have already demanded a jury trial during which the plaintiffs will submit documentary evidence proving the participation of Kamal Nath and many senior leaders of the ruling Congress party in the Sikh riots.”
“We will also approach the US Department of State, Canadian Immigration Department and governments of European Union countries asking them to ban Kamal Nath’s entry into their countries as he is a human rights violator. US law provides a remedy to victims of human rights violations that have been committed abroad and allows the victims to bring a lawsuit against the perpetrator in the US Federal,” he further said.
Sarna to appear before Akal Takht today
While Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) chief Paramjit Singh Sarna and his brother Harvinder have been summoned before the Akal Takht on Saturday, activists of the 1984 Danga Peerat Welfare Society held a march on Friday and submitted a memorandum before Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh, seeking strict religious action against the Sarna brothers. Lawyer of the riot victims, H S Phoolka, had accused the Sarnas of misconduct and using abusive language against him. Sarnas will be arriving at the Takht to explain their stand on the allegations. Surjit Singh and Bibi Gurdeep Kaur said the DSGMC head was acting on the behest of the Congress party to derail the judicial process against its leaders.

Kashmiris Storm the Street, Defying Curfew

For those looking answers for “SAFFRON UPRISING” or their uprooting by PSEUDO WARS and claiming “WAR IS PEACE”:

Here are some food thoughts:

When a society inculcates beliefs over a long period of time, those beliefs cannot be changed by a forceful imposition of others. The beliefs once practiced overtly continue to be held covertly. Force is never an effective instrument of conversion. Martyrdom is preferable to surrender, and even promises of a better future are ineffective.
So what did the Covert War really accomplish? 1984GENOCIDE?
It united a nation without uniting its people. The INDIA became one nation indivisible made up of two disunited peoples; it became a nation divided, and the division has spread.
Therein lies a lesson all nations should have learned. By the force of arms, you can compel outward conformity to political institutions and their laws, but you cannot change the antagonistic attitudes of people, that can remain unchanged for decades and longer waiting for opportunities to reassert themselves.
Any astute reader can apply this lesson to the present day’s activities in the Kashmir. Neither force nor promises of a future better than the past can win the hearts and minds of people. And soldiers who die in an attempt to change another people’s values always die in vain.
All wars, even when carried on by the strongest of nations against weak opponents, are chancy, and their costs, in every respect, are always much more than anticipated, even putting aside the physical destruction and the lives lost.
Nations that have started wars with the psychological certainty of winning rarely have, and when they have, the results were rarely lasting or those sought. As Gandhi once observed, “Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary.”
The Crusaders, fighting under the banner of Christ, could not make Palestine a part of Christendom. France, under Napoleon, conquered most of Europe but lost it all and Napoleon ended up a broken man. Prussian militarism prevailed in the Franco-Prussian War, but in less than a century Germany had lost all. The Austrians in 1914 could not only not subdue the Serbs, the empire and its monarchial form of government were lost. The Germans and Japanese after 1939 and astounding initial successes were reduced to ruin.
But even the winners are losers.
Americans won the Mexican War and acquired the southwestern United States, but that conquest brought with it unfathomable and persistent problems—racial prejudice, discrimination, and an irresolvable problem of immigration and border insecurity. Americans likewise won the falsely justified Spanish American war and acquired a number of colonial states but were unable to hold most of them. The allies won the Second World War, but France and England lost the colonies they were fighting to preserve, and these two powers, which were great before the war, were reduced to minor status (although both still refuse to admit it). Israel has won five wars against various Arab states since 1948, but its welfare and security have not been enhanced, and Arab hatred and intransigence has grown more common.
People need to realize that after a war, things are never the same as they were before, and that even the winners rarely get what they fight for. War is a fool’s errand in pursuit of ephemera.
At the end of World War II, American leaders wrongly assumed that America’s superpower status gave it the means to impose its view of what the world should be like on others everywhere. Then came Korea and the assumption proved false. Despite all of the destruction and death inflicted on the North Koreans, their attitudes went unchanged. The lesson went unlearned. It went unlearned again in Viet Nam, after which Henry Kissinger is reported to have naively said, “I could not believe that a primitive people had no breaking point.” The Vietnamese never broke.

“SAFFRON UPRISING” in BURMA was crushed by WAR&Violence.

The Burmese junta and its 77-year-old leader, General Than Shwe, could be investigated over a number of alleged crimes during its rule including:
* The crushing of the August 1988 democracy uprising that led to the deaths of 3,000 to 6,000 people.
* Widespread ethnic cleansing of groups such as the Karen, which have been fighting for greater autonomy for half a century.
* The alleged use of forced labour to build pipelines and other infrastructure, torture and beatings, and the use of rape by Burma’s armed forces. Human Rights Watch says that such violations are widespread in Burma.
*The violent crackdown on the September 2007 “Saffron Uprising”, headed by Buddhist monks, which left scores of people dead.

Similar are the reports after 1984GENOCIDE.http://www.sikhgenocide.org/background.htm
Unfortunately, history teaches its lessons to only those willing to learn, and the OUR BROTHERS shows no signs of having such willingness.

Obama wants Burmese rulers to face UN war crimes investigation
US move reflects the failure of engagement with Rangoon

ENLARGEThe administration of US President Barack Obama has decided to throw its crucial support behind moves to establish a special UN commission to investigate alleged war crimes perpetrated by the military rulers of Burma.
In what represents a marked rollback of one of President Obama’s most controversial foreign policy initiatives, US officials said Washington would now back the war crimes investigation, as urged earlier this year by the UN special rapporteur for human rights in Burma. Washington is also said to be considering tightening sanctions against the junta.
The decision represents a reversal of an initiative announced last year to try to develop closer diplomatic ties with Burma by establishing regular meetings involving a senior US official.

Emmanouil Athanasiou: The long arm of human rights law is the only thing that will frighten the generals into changeSearch the news archive for more storiesThere was talk that a closer relationship could possibly be rewarded with a dilution or dropping of some sanctions. But reports suggest Washington believes its overtures to the military have largely been rebuffed, even though several meetings have been held.
There is also likely concern over continued reports – though none of them confirmed – that Burma is interested in developing a nuclear weapon.
“There have been no positive results on democracy and human rights in our diplomatic engagement,” one anonymous official told The Washington Post.
The decision by the US to back the tribunal, already supported by Britain and Australia, comes before elections in Burma on 7 November.
While the junta claims they will be a stepping-stone towards full democracy, most observers in the West have dismissed them, saying they will do little more than cement the position of the military.
Campaigners have argued the elections could not be considered fair while more than 2,100 political prisoners – among them an opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi – were still detained.
A total of about 40 parties have registered to participate in November’s elections, though many of them are groups led by former senior military officers who have taken off their uniforms for the process. The National League for Democracy, the party of Ms Suu Kyi, a Nobel laureate, voted not to participate, though a breakaway group has registered.
Activists yesterday welcomed the US decision. Aung Din, executive director of the Washington-based Campaign for Burma, said: “This is the right and timely action in response to the power thirsty and brutal generals, who are expecting to delete their dirty crimes by putting a sham constitution into effect through a sham election.
“This is a clear message that the United States will not recognise their showcase election and will make them accountable for their horrible abuses against their own citizens.”
Mark Farmaner, of the Burma Campaign UK, also supported the move but said it was essential the EU made a similar declaration. “The EU must end its silence on crimes against humanity in Burma, and publicly support a UN inquiry,” he said.
Pro-democracy and human rights groups have urged the United Nations Security Council to impose an arms embargo on the regime and establish a commission of inquiry into crimes against humanity.
They fear a humanitarian crisis may develop along the border with Thailand, where the Burmese military has been fighting ethnic Karens, pushing thousands of refugees across the border. Karen National Union fighters have been battling for half a century for greater autonomy from Burma’s central government.
The establishment of an independent tribunal to investigate war crimes is no small undertaking and has as much to do with geopolitics as with any offences that may have been committed. Many activists opposed to the 2003 invasion of Iraq have campaigned for Tony Blair and former US president George Bush to be charged with war crimes. In the case of Burma, five nations have so far supported an investigation. France is said to be one of several countries in the EU, along with Germany, Austria and Italy, that support a softer stance.
In March, the UN special rapporteur for Burma, Tomás Ojea Quintana, issued a report that was highly critical of the country’s human rights situation. Urging an investigation, he said there was evidence of mass killing, torture, forced displacement and rape.
The decision by the Obama administration followed a review of longstanding US policy towards Burma. Officials said they believed a policy of sanctions had, by itself, failed to bring about improvements in democracy and human rights.
Yet the move also underscored concern that Asian giants such as India and China, which have warm relations with Burma, were securing valuable oil and gas deals. Such relationships were also undermining the effectiveness of Western sanctions.
Reports suggest there are various options for setting up a commission of inquiry. According to Foreign Policy magazine, the US could introduce a resolution establishing such a commission before the UN Human Rights Council, which will convene next month.
Washington could also press the UN General Assembly to pass a resolution establishing it, or it could appeal to Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary general, to do it under his own authority. Such inquiries can often lead to war crimes prosecutions.
Burma: War crimes?
The Burmese junta and its 77-year-old leader, General Than Shwe, could be investigated over a number of alleged crimes during its rule including:
* The crushing of the August 1988 democracy uprising that led to the deaths of 3,000 to 6,000 people.

* The alleged use of forced labour to build pipelines and other infrastructure, torture and beatings, and the use of rape by Burma’s armed forces. Human Rights Watch says that such violations are widespread in Burma.

Many had asked, what is “PSEUDO NWO”?
This is a tricky question to answer since, present PSEUDO NWO in power shall
try to ensure that “Ignorance is Strength” and “War is peace”.

Actually, if we try to understand our historical facts we become awakened and realize, “just winning the war” is not the end of the story,
if PEACE is not restored in world.

i.e. period of 1945-1950 holds one of the key,
starting from WWII to Nuremberg Trials. Nuremberg trials was also referred to Victors-Trial.
Regardless it gave birth to new polarization of power. Further during the same period many new countries appeared on the face of EARTH.

This period of just 5 Years carved and paved way for future conflicts about to be seen later. Whatever we call some analyst believe that so called NWO has taken birth!

Why this New World Order was only a misnomer to NWO?
Again, history gives us the answer we don’t need rocket science to understand the facts. After formation of new collation of pseudo NWO world started to polarize into two.

Regardless, pseudo NWO had immense power and control over planet earth. This power and control could have been better used to bring PEACE and PROSPERITY to the world but that never happened. Instead on many occasion world became more and more complex and on the edge. On the edge of extinsion where one wrong pressing RED-BUTTON could engulf whole world
for next WORLD WAR |||.

Further, World witnessed many GENOCIDES and this pseudo NWO could do nothing except
be a mere suspectator. After genocides were committed this NWO could not punish the guilty on same forum/pattern “NUREMBERG” that was made-to-believe as international court of “TRUTH, JUSTICE & LIBERTY” and  world now have victory over all the evils of society e.g. genocides, human right violation, terrorism, poverty etc.etc.

One would expect that so-called NWO would be able to curtail if not CEASE GENOCIDE,
however, we have entirely opposite picture in current world.http://www.genocidewatch.org/updates/newsmonitors.htmlCurrent Alerts
Sudan – Since the Bush Administration first recognized the genocide in Darfur, at least 250,000 more men, women, and children have died. Using its own military and the Janjaweed militia, Sudan’s regime has conducted a systematic campaign to kill and drive out Darfur’s ethnic Fur, Massalit, and Zhagawa peoples. Supported by aircraft and helicopter gunships, the Janjaweed attack towns, villages, and refugee camps, kill the men and boys, rape the women and girls, and poison the wells. Their goal is to replace these African peoples with Arab herders. Ethiopia – In September 2008, Genocide Watch declared a Genocide Warning regarding the war that was being waged against small ethnic minority called Burji in a town of Hagre Mariam by an ethnic Oromo group called Guji. Since then the Guji Oromo have continued to wage protracted war against Burji in various localities, especially in towns and villages surrounding the city of Soyama,  which is 60 Km west of the city of Hagremariam.  Over the course of the last several months there have been heavy loss of lives and damage to Guji properties including destruction of crops and farm equipment.  In January 2009, there were reports of heavy fighting on three different fronts, namely Nadale/ Chuluse front and Gara and Tisho vicinities. News from Hagremariam stated that Guji Oromo warriers were advancing towards Soyama in great numbers.   According to Genocide Watch sources, Guji/Oromo attacks on Buji began on January 22, 2009.   The situation is continues to be dire, and urgent action must be taken to avert further attacks.
Chad – BBC News reports that “Chad’s government has accused Sudan of ‘exporting the genocide’ in Darfur across the border,” while the New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof writes “Over the past week, Sudan has sponsored a full-scale invasion of Chad, seeking to oust Chad’s president and replace him with the warlord who has overseen the murder, rape and pillage in those border areas. Sudan seems determined to extend its genocide to Chad, and the upshot is that the catastrophe of Darfur may now be multiplied manyfold.”
Zimbabwe – Genocide is a process and not an event. The Mugabe regime has committed genocide before and it has begun the genocidal process again. Beginning on May 19, 2005, Operation Murambatsvina (“Operation Drive out the Filth”), having already left 700,000 homeless, and directly impacting the lives of a further 2.4 million, is the most recent manifestation of the Mugabe/ZANU-PF’s systematic progression toward a governmental policy of overt mass murder.
Burma/Myanmar – Burma, Southeast Asia’s most oppressed nation, remains under the forty-three year tyranny of a military junta and should be a grave concern to the international community. Abuse of ethnic minorities, mass rape of women, mandatory relocations, extrajudicial state executions, military recruitment of children, and forced labor are only a few of the many violations of human rights currently practiced in the resource rich but economically impoverished nation.1 The regime change of 2004 which deposed General Khin Nyunt in favor of Lieutenant General Soe Win continues to suppress the strong movement for democracy, keeping Burma in a cyclical state of tyranny.Uzbekistan – Six years ago, a series of bombs exploded in the administrative center of Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan. That same day, President Islam Karimov stated that “in order to save peace and calm in the republic,” he was willing to sacrifice the lives of a few. Although the context of his declaration implies that he is referring to terrorists, the subsequent arrests of more than 7,000 Uzbeks reveal that the president’s perception of a national threat actually means anyone who disputes his absolute authority. Genocide Watch has concluded that the government of Uzbekistan is using the real threat of Islamic extremism as a pretext for silencing popular expressions of discontent.
Kenya – Genocide Watch has called a Genocide Alert because of genocidal massacres that are increasing daily in Kenya in the wake of a disputed election between President Mwai Kibaki, who is a member of the Kikuyu ethnic group, and Mr. Raila Odinga, who is ethnically a Luo. Ethnic riots have broken out in Nairobi, Kisumu, Eldoret, and numerous other places in Kenya. People have been pulled from their cars and their identification cards checked for their names, which symbolize their ethnic identity, and then killed if they belong to groups being targeted. Hundreds of people have already been murdered. Today a church in Eldoret was locked and the people inside were burned to death by a mob.Ethnic massacres are an indicator that the risk of genocide in Kenya has risen to Stage 6, the Preparation stage.Kenya has not yet descended into actual genocide. However, the next stage in the process is actual genocide, and Kenya is close to that stage.
Burundi- The people of Burundi have been confronted with war, genocide, economic decline and tyranny for over five decades.  At least two major genocides have occurred since independence in 1962.  In 1972, the Tutsi army murdered a whole generation of young, educated, and prosperous Hutus, a genocide that cost at least 150,000 lives.  1993-1995 brought a deluge of mass murders of both Hutus and Tutsis, culminating in a civil war that cost 300,000 lives.
Apart from above, gross human right violations is destabilizing world along with terrorism.In closing, I would only like to add that perhaps much feared WW III is what appears to beon horizon due to approaching time-line.
Now it remains to be seen that would World War III bring-out REAL NWO?

Well, while world works out how to tackle WW-III
,
minorities are working out for their peace and prosperity and how to safe-guard
their identity?

How minorities can prepare for or avert next possible GENOCIDE?
Again for those who believe that by year 2012 the world would end,
I would only like to say that what they call as “End of Beginning” I perceive it as “Beginning of END”.

“Beginning of END” OF PSEUDO NWO (New World Order).

Angry Housewives out, looking for their disappearing husbands in KASHMIR.
Similar phenomena was witnessed during 1980’s and 1990s decade in PANJAB.
In similar situation Jaswant Singh Khalra reported mass disappearances during 80’s&90’s.
Result Jaswant Singh Khalra disappeared under mysterious circumstances in INDIA.http://www.amnesty.org/en/library/asset/ASA20/007/1998/en/600df327-dab7-11dd-80bc-797022e51902/asa200071998en.html
Indian-Panjab region is bread-basket of INDIA and has India’s Minority Religion “SIKHS” < 2% of 1BILLION indians (yes, that is 1,000,000,000 number) already fighting for justice of  1984 GENOCIDE for more than 25 years  that left more than 5000 Sikhs (infants/kids/ women/men) brutally chopped/sliced/ slaughtered all-over india, wherein presence of radioactive URANIUM on grounds and water of India-punjab adds another level/dimension of concern for their future/safety in India-punjab.http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/aug/30/india-punjab-children-uranium-pollutionThe angry housewives setting Kashmir ablazeBy Soutik BiswasBBC News, SrinagarWomen have joined protests in large numbersWhenever there are protests demanding “freedom from India” in her crowded neighbourhood in Srinagar, Firdousi Farooq makes a point of participating, her four-year-old son in tow.
Joining such demonstrations in Indian-administered Kashmir these days is fraught with risks.
Security forces have often fired on stone-pelting protesters, killing over 50 people, mostly teenagers, in the past two months as the valley has been convulsed by what most locals call a fierce peoples’ “uprising” against India.
So what makes a mother of three hit the angry streets of Kashmir?
Ms Farooq’s eldest son, Wamiq, was killed in January when a tear gas shell fired by the police exploded on his head.
The 14-year-old top-of-the-class student, who loved watching cartoons and dreamed of becoming a doctor, had stepped out for a game of cricket.
The police report describes him as a “miscreant who was part of an unlawful assembly”, at which the forces had fired tear gas shells in self-defence.
Very few – including his neighbours, lawyers and journalists – believe this.
‘Subjugation’Sitting in her home in the crowded old city, Ms Farooq says she had decided to hit the streets after her son’s “murder”.
“Why should I not protest? Why should I not pick up a stone? I am doing this in the honour of my martyred son. I am doing this for azadi (freedom) from subjugation and repression,” she says defiantly.
Firdousi Farooq is just another addition to the burgeoning army of women who have been taking part in the protests in Kashmir this summer.
You see them on the streets; you see them in the pictures.
Young and old, middle-class and poor, mostly dressed in floral tunics, they defy the armed forces, pelting stones at them, shouting slogans and singing anti-India songs. When night falls, some of them even lead protests with their children.
Out of more than 50 people killed in the latest round of violence, three have been women.
Ms Farooq joined protests after her son was killedYasmeen Jan, 25, was standing near a window inside her house in Batamaloo on 6 July, watching a demonstration wind by when she was hit by a bullet allegedly fired by security forces.
“Mummy maey aaw heartas fire” (Mummy, my heart has taken fire), she told her mother, turning away from the window, before collapsing on the floor, dead.
Fifteen-year-old Afroza Teli took a bullet in her head during a protest demonstration in Khrew village in Pulwana district on 1 August. She died later in Srinagar.
Angry Kashmiris set fire to an irrigation office, a revenue office and a court building after her death. A police station and a police vehicle were also set on fire.
Aisha Shiekh, a 55-year-old housewife and resident of Srinagar, was allegedly hit by a stone flung from a sling shot by the security forces when she was walking with her granddaughter to buy milk on 7 August. She died from her wounds a day later.
This is not the first time that women in Kashmir have come out in droves to protest, but their numbers and impact appear to be greater than ever before.
“This time the intensity of protests by women is more. You can also see more women protesting. Women have borne the brunt of the Kashmir conflict, and it is not surprising that they are at the end of their tether,” says Kashmiri journalist Afsana Rashid.
RapeAs Bashir Ahmed Dabla, who teaches sociology at Kashmir University says, Kashmir’s women have “seen their children husbands and fathers being killed in the conflict, and routinely humiliated by the security forces”.
Women have borne the brunt of the conflictStudies have shown there are up to 32,000 widows of the two-decade-long conflict in the Kashmir valley, and nearly 100,000 orphans. Another 10,000 men have allegedly disappeared during the conflict, says a rights group.
Then there are some 400 “half-widows”, whose husbands disappeared in the custody of troops or police. Women have also been the target of rape by the security forces.
“Women have been compelled to come out and protest because of the injustice and repression,” says Professor Dabla.
Parveena Ahangar, a softly spoken housewife turned feisty activist, has been making a regular trek from her Gangbugh residence to the city’s downtown every month, to protest against the disappearances during the conflict.
Ms Ahangar’s son Javed was 16 when he was picked up by security forces in 1990 from the family home. He never returned.
The indefatigable woman has travelled around the world to highlight her cause, leaving behind her husband, debilitated and out of work after 10 surgeries, and her remaining three children, including a daughter.
“As long as I am alive, my struggle with go on. I want a simple answer from the authorities: Where did these men go?”
The coming out of women in the Muslim-dominated Kashmir valley has been helped by the fact that they have been traditionally freer than their counterparts in many parts of the world.
They have not observed the purdah, or faced religious or cultural segregation from men, say sociologists. Men and women have always worked in the farms together, prayed side by side in mosques and participated in religious congregations.
Key roleThey have traditionally played an important role in the neighbourhood citizens’ committees, preparing food for their protesting menfolk and taking the injured to hospitals.
Women have led night protests in KashmirThe pro-freedom movement has also thrown up a number of women leaders – both fundamentalists and liberals.
“Kashmiri women are among the most politicised women in the subcontinent,” says Professor Dabla.
Zaitun Khan, a 20-something homemaker, is one of them – she remembers participating in “peaceful” protests when she was in college, but is now determined to hit the streets to demand freedom.
Her brother Fayaz Ahmed Wani, who worked as a labourer in the floriculture department of the government, was hit by a bullet fired by the forces and killed while on his way to work on 6 July.
Mr Wani was 29, and left behind his wife and two daughters.
“I will go and join the protests now,” says Ms Khan.
“He never protested or threw a stone in his life. But he died. How many more men will have to die?
I want to go out and protest and demand freedom. Freedom to live.”

History in making or  what, whole world is watching  Kashmir
Why Kashmir now not ready for anything less than “FREEDOM”?

In an attempt to understand plight of minorities, lets delve a little deeper for new paradigm shift in our thinking.

“Under the partition plan provided by the Indian Independence Act of 1947, Kashmir was free to accede to India or Pakistan.
The Maharaja, Hari Singh, wanted to stay independent but eventually decided to accede to India, signing over key powers to the Indian government – in return for military aid and a promised referendum.”  à http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10537286

If we try to understand recent 3 months massive civilian protests, we can better understand that this is not going to fizzle-out soon, as in past. One thing that any every government should realize, they can only attain few year of lifeline with BULLETS. Past five years has seen unprecedented deaths of protesters in Kashmir by BULLETS, at the end of the day, matter is still not resolved?

What baffles GOI, How could Kashmir situation spiral out of hands?
If this is considered in-hands, GOI has always been able to calm the situation with carrot and stick approach in past but now situation is different. Kashmiries in past/last 5 decades have only asked for free-fair election under UN supervision, that never happened.

Kashmiri-es now firmly believe that there is no hope and scope for MINORITIES in INDIA. MINORITIES in india by-an-large believe, that they are treated like SLAVES and third-class-citizens and india has CARROT and STICK approach towards MINORITIES.

One of biggest blot/blunder INDIA committed and india still don’t admit is 1984 GENOCIDE on SIKHS (minority religion of india <1.5% of billion indians) have suffered great ordeal since india’s independence 1947. Whereas this same minority religion “SIKHS” contributed more than 80% for india’s independence are now facing their own “Safely/future in indian-panjab” as they have not gotten justice for over 25 years, not a single person found guilty by india’s justice system for 1984 GENOCIDE, what more can you expect for minorities?

What minorities want is that their voice be heard not silenced by oppressive BULLETS.
INDIA precedence of recognizing MINORITIES and protecting them, failed at COLOSSAL SCALE.

For instance:
As erstwhile sovereigns of Punjab, the Sikhs—who constituted about 1.1 percent of the population of British-India[26]—played a disproportionate role in the struggle to free the subcontinent of British colonialism.  The table below summarizes the Sikh contribution in the freedom movement.  The data reflects Sikhs serving prison sentences, being deported to nearby islands in exile, facing capital punishment and enlisting themselves in the Indian National Army that was organized to oppose the British.

Taken from http://www.sikhgenocide.org/background.htm

However, 1984 GENOCIDE rewarded SIKHS with long-life scar and wound and that they are not required anymore in INDIA, since their sacrifice and contribution is now too old to register.  Also worth noting is the fact that till 1984 sikhs in “Independent India” army constituted 60% total strength while still remaining minority religion < 2% of total Indians.

What excuse India has for 1984 GENOCIDE – indra’s assassination?
INDIAN infamous assassinations:
1. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, on 30 January 1948, shot at point-blank range by Nathuram Godse
(What should we call here, HINDU OR INDIAN ? decide ?
However no-side effects “NO GENOCIDE” in INDIA
2. indra gandhi, 31 October 1984, Beant Singh shot her three times using his side-arm and Satwant Singh fired 30 rounds,[26] using a Sten submachine gun.
SIDE-effect 1984 GENOCIDE ACROSS INDIA by INDIANS or HINDU  ? DECIDE ?
(bear-in-mind no muslims, christians, jews were involved in this 1984 GENOCIDE eitherway)

(What should we call here, HINDU OR INDIAN ? decide ?
However no-side effects “NO GENOCIDE” in INDIA

Now post 1984 decades witness new kind of GENOCIDE, open LICENSE to KILL SIKHS under TADA/PADA justice system.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrorist_and_Disruptive_Activities_(Prevention)_Act
The Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act, commonly known as TADA, was an Indian law active between 1985 and 1995 (modified in 1987) for the prevention of terrorist activities in Punjab. It was renewed in 1989, 1991 and 1993 before being allowed to lapse in 1995 due to increasing unpopularity due to widespread allegations of abuse.[1] The Act’s third paragraph gives a very thorough definition of “terrorism”

While SIKHS/Minorities of INDIA firmly believe:
Terrorists and terrorism is wrong and their is no place for terrorism but anti-terror laws should be about stopping terrorists not ethnic cleansing minorities like 1984 GENOCIDE. Sikhs are being ethnic cleans under the name of anti terror laws of Hindu India. These laws are specially designed to attack the Sikh identity and force Hinduism into the Sikh Nation.

It is estimated that during the decade of 80’s and 90’s 2.50-3.00 million SIKHS lost their lives.
“The truth often hurts however that does not make it any less true” – Mick Hodd

The fact of the matter still remains fact, PANJAB was last province/sovereign independent state, British Empire (UK) merged into INDIA for better and central control of their east colonial empire.

In-fact pro-patriotic INDIANS on every independence day make mockery of British Empire and term and label them as LOOTERS of INDIA, don’t   fully understand and recognize that UK gave that everything that INDIA feels proud today (60+ years after independence).

UK gifted/gave India, operational and well-connected railways/post-system/education/central control of resources/constitution and justice-system however justice-system/constitution was amended again-n-again to suit majority religion/community and deprive minorities of their rights.

What’s more to add that UK/British-Empire gave south-asian dwellers one UNITED INDIA that was only seen on international map in the beginning of 18th CENTURY. However PAKISTAN and BANGLADESH choose to be out of this united India.

What current independent India has fermented is SUPER CORRUPTION again of . COLOSSAL SCALE that was almost next to none during UK/British-Empire rule on INDIA.

Therefore, Kashmiries now firmly believe that minority community/religion in INDIA shall always be persecuted and HUMAN RIGHTS in INDIA don’t EXIST they all have been SHUNNED-OUT of INDIA and now INDIA is after UNSC seat that shall give them ABSOLUTE POWER!

RUSSIA india’s long-time partner and bosom friend has unconditional YES for INDIAs UNSC. Bear-in-mind that this present RUSSIA was a.k.a USSR during beginning of long-term-RUSSIA-INDIA partnership in 1980’s.

Now all eyes on US decision awaited by NOV2010 for INDIAs UNSC, if yes, then we have 2012 in making or what?

Again for those who believe that by year 2012 the world would end, I would only like to say that what they call as “End of Beginning” I perceive it as “Beginning of END”.

“Beginning of END” OF PSEUDO NWO (New World Order).

Kashmir united and not in favor of anything less than complete FREEDOM…..”Our fight is for independence, not autonomy,” Javed Mir, a former militant commander turned separatist politician, told AFP.
Is this history in making or what?

http://www.google. com/hostednews/ afp/article/ ALeqM5iJBll4Y9wL FxwyPqAKJFc4HL6T tgKashmir separatists reject autonomy offer(AFP) – 2 hours ago
SRINAGAR, India — Separatist leaders in Indian Kashmir dismissed Wednesday overtures from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh about political autonomy in the region following months of anti-India unrest.
Appealing to Kashmiri Muslims to “give peace a chance”, Singh had said Tuesday that his government would consider any consensus proposal for autonomy as long as it remained “within the ambit” of the constitution.
He also announced the creation of a panel of experts that would draw up a “jobs plan” for Indian Kashmir where rampant unemployment — especially among young people — has fuelled resentment against Indian rule.
But senior Kashmir separatists rejected Singh’s initiative.
“Our fight is for independence, not autonomy,” Javed Mir, a former militant commander turned separatist politician, told AFP.
“We will continue our fight for our goal through peaceful protests,” said Mir, who had been among the first Kashmiris to take up arms in 1989 when frustration against Indian rule boiled over into a full-blown insurgency.
Under the terms of its accession to India in 1947 — after independence from Britain and the sub-continent’ s division — Kashmir was granted a relatively high degree of autonomy, excluding areas like defence and foreign affairs.
But those powers have been eroded over the years, and renewed promises of greater autonomy gain little traction in separatist circles.
“Our struggle is not for restoration of autonomy. It is to seek our right to self-determination, ” Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, an influential moderate separatist and Muslim cleric, told AFP.
“We should be allowed to decide whether we want to remain with India, accede to Pakistan or carve out an independent state,” he said.
Kashmir is divided between nuclear-armed rivals India and Pakistan, which both claim the region in full and have fought two wars over their territorial dispute.
The Kashmir legislative assembly in 2000 passed a resolution favouring full restoration of the state’s autonomy, but it was rejected by the then Hindu-nationalist government in New Delhi.
Autonomy is the main demand of the ruling National Conference, the state’s biggest pro-India political party.

Subject: [1984genocide] ***** US court issues default certificate against….. … GENOCIDE *****

Many applauds for US, in taking “First Just Step” in right direction to at-least start identifying and  instigating accountability for 1984 Sikhs GENOCIDE. Of-couse we still have a long way to go before GROSS human right violators are put before international court of justice. Why international court  because in india, indian-courts can never do fair trial and justice to 1984 GENOCIDE victims, indian-courts are still trying to ascertain and gather proof of evidence of human-right- violation in 1984 GENOCIDE for over 25 YEARS, “amazing justice system in india, for minorities only”.
Also it has been commendable efforts of various justice-liberty- peace loving organizations working together and immense credit goes to Mr. Gurpatwant S Pannum.
On the flip side we find current india’s home minister released press note on Aug4, statingtheir efforts on releasing funds after funds to compensate for 1984 GENOCIDE.However, indian home minister fails to utter any words on 1984 GENOCIDE perpetrators.
Open questions: Why democratic india be more than glad to provide funds for 1984 GENOCIDEbut fail to bring justice to even one of  the 1984 GENOCIDE perpetrators?
– Should minorities in india take for granted that next GENOCIDE is around the corner?- Perhaps appropriate funds have already been allocated to compensate for NEXT GENOCIDE by india?- Why indian media/tv/news never put-up this question? or are they are blind-folded to minorities in india?

The minister failed to respond to summons to him on a plea by Sikh group
A new York district court on Thursday issued a certificate of default declaring that Union Minister for Roadways Kamal Nath has failed to respond to the summons issued by the court earlier on April 6. This was stated by Gurpatwant S Pannun, legal advisor of Sikhs for Justice, an organisation which has filed the case against Nath.
Pannun said: “The US court issued a certificate of default against Indian Minister Kamal Nath because despite publicly acknowledging to have received the court summons on April 6, he ignored the summons and decided not to contest the allegation of leading the mobs that killed Sikhs in 1984. The certificate of default paves the way for the US court to grant all reliefs requested by Sikhs for Justice, a US-based non-profit national human rights advocacy group in their complaint.”

Nath was asked to file a response to the complaint filed by the NGO. Other plaintiffs in the pending lawsuit are Jasbir Singh, who lost more than 20 family members and Mohinder Singh, whose father was killed in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
The plea against the minister was filed under Alien Tort Claims Act (ATCA) and the Torture Victim Protection Act (TVPA) asking the US court to grant compensatory and punitive damages for Kamal Nath’s role in leading an armed mob which attacked Gurdwara Rakab Ganj in Delhi on November 1, 1984.
Pannun added: “The US court will now issue its judgment based on the submissions of the NGO. We have already demanded a jury trial during which the plaintiffs will submit documentary evidence proving the participation of Kamal Nath and many senior leaders of the ruling Congress party in the Sikh riots.”

“We will also approach the US Department of State, Canadian Immigration Department and governments of European Union countries asking them to ban Kamal Nath’s entry into their countries as he is a human rights violator. US law provides a remedy to victims of human rights violations that have been committed abroad and allows the victims to bring a lawsuit against the perpetrator in the US Federal,” he further said.
Sarna to appear before Akal Takht todayWhile Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) chief Paramjit Singh Sarna and his brother Harvinder have been summoned before the Akal Takht on Saturday, activists of the 1984 Danga Peerat Welfare Society held a march on Friday and submitted a memorandum before Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh, seeking strict religious action against the Sarna brothers. Lawyer of the riot victims, H S Phoolka, had accused the Sarnas of misconduct and using abusive language against him. Sarnas will be arriving at the Takht to explain their stand on the allegations. Surjit Singh and Bibi Gurdeep Kaur said the DSGMC head was acting on the behest of the Congress party to derail the judicial process against its leaders.
