In Srinagar, First Visuals of Another Large Protest Against Modi's 370 Move

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
Last week, when Reuters reported a large protest had taken place in Soura, Srinagar against the Centre’s unilateral removal of Article 370, the Ministry of Home Affairs rushed to dismiss the news as “fabricated”. A few days later, the MHA changed tack. and admitted there had been a protest but said it was the handiwork of “miscreants”. On August 16, The Wire went back to Anchar near Soura to find out what local people have to say. This time, we came across a protest that seemed almost as large as the last one.Thousands of men, women and children had gathered to protest the Centre’s move.

U can't win a heart with fear of bullet. They think that they freedom fighters and doing same as we did for our freedom from British forces. It's really sad 😢 and disturbing and clearly all the government are responsible for this situation. You may get land by force but not their hearts 💔

So wire has just convinced us that Kashmiri Muslims still want Kashmir to accede to Pakistan. Thank you so much. Aapne hamari aankhe khol di. 😁 😂 😁
What you fail to understand/discard is the Hindu POV in this case. Hindus see this problem as a case of demographic invasion of Kashmir by foreigners using Persuasion, coercion and intimidation as tools of deceit, a few hundred years ago.
As per this belief Islam invaded Kashmir first through the love of Sufism about 700 years ago and is now asserting and consolidating itself using wahabism and salafist ideologies.
The Sanatan Dharma has a written history of thousands of years in Kashmir, which has been their spiritual abode since time immemorial.
The present freedom struggle could have some buoyancy, had people of other sects and religious beliefs in J&K, supported or at least taken a neutral stand on the issue. Fortunately that's not the case.
So the present turmoil and many to come are nothing but a reiteration of the fact that the radical Islam does not appreciate plurality and multiculturalism in the societies where they are in majority.
🙏🏻 🙏🏻

It's a bitter truth of Kashmir. Kashmiri people's want justice. Thanks The wire for showing truth of Kashmir. Modi Govt should understand that they can't win the Heart of Kashmiri people's with fear of bullets.
Modi Government spoiling the pride of India on the world level. Now the united nations should come forward to establish peace in kashmir.

Why do you call this Kashmir, and only show Srinagar Valley (just 10% of kashmir). What about Jammu and Ladhakh?

Unfortunately Situation is bad.
It was bound to be.
But we cannot hand over Kashmir to Pakistan.
We will have to win there hearts and that requires time.
Today they are against us but I'm sure one day they will be proud to be living in India.
Inshallahh
Jai Hind...
