I am a Kashmiri, its my crime.....
Independence day!! Thats the time!
"I am a Muslim" so kill me!
Invade my land! My territory!
Alter my leadership and see!
But Still you call it democracy!
I deserve to be humiliated.
I deserve to be harassed.
I deserve to be mauled.
I deserve to be killed.
Put Boiling water!
Grill me Alive!
I am a Kashmiri!
I will surely survive!
I demand my rights
Is it my crime?
I demand my dignity
I demand my life,
I am a KASHMIRI,
I want to live,
but a living life.
Not a dead man's life.
It is my crime.
I can die struggling for freedom rather than giving it up and living.
Living a life which was never mine!
Sleeping so cosily in my bed in the late hours of the night I was suddenly woken up by some noise! Maybe it was a dream but no!! I have never seen one which has audio in it as well!! Cries of "Naarai Taqbeeer" and "Hum Kya Chahatay" were ringing in my ear! I jumped out of my bed and hurried to the top floor of my house! In the dark could be easily seen the procession which everyone was talking about! Without paying a second thought to it and the fact that it was so late I jumped back into my cosy little bed to sleep while the other folk of the same age group were shouting and awake!
Next day. without even a small feather of what had happened the night before I switched on the TV and tuned into TAKE1 channel!! Processions and protests were being shown live, CRPF vs Kashmiri Folk! Came to know that many people had died! Just then my mom came and said that no milk, no bread, absolutely nothing could be purchased! She said, "Mamoon, there is Kehwa for you to have for your Breakfast!" Was a little disappointed! Dont even remember when mom had prepared Kehwa for me before! Well maybe it was 'my' sacrifice for the bigger sake!
I changed the channel and tuned in to DD News! The Channel which I think strictly follows Indian politics! The other channels except for NDTV always look biased towards something or the other! Political support as usual! Came to know today was going to be a very important day! Yesterday ( August 11) a Hurriyat Leader, Sheikh Abdul Aziz had been shot mercilessly in the stomach! And yes he died! I would like you see a profile of SHEIKH ABDUL AZIZ here! Today was going to be a big big day after all!! The TAKE1 channel kept on showing the videos where the poor Kashmiri was being tortured and fired upon! But But DD NEWS!! It didnt even tell the people about the death of Sheikh Abdul Aziz! Just forget about mentioning about how many people had died! All they mentioned was that the government had opened the route from Jammu to Srinagar and the trucks were being sent in! Talk about India being a Democracy!
It is a very pathetic thing indeed! Lets compare the situation in Jammu as well in Kashmir! First things first! Lets rename this state from 'Jammu and Kashmir' to 'Jammu vs Kashmir'. Jammu saw protest as well.. But there the forces didnt fire on the people! Even though the violence level was still there! But here; the dogs which they consider us! Being Muslim doesnt help either! And you can see the dead bodies already! I never went out of my home! Being the only son I wasnt allowed! It could even have been me! I mean this is not America where protest actually means something! Where I could be a hero if join the protest! Well not in this stupid place where the CRPF people dont even let the ambulances pass!! Read a Doctor's story here!
People speak of Hitler don't they! A cruel guy who aimed his cruelty at the Jews only... I mean look at this present situation in Kashmir.. Lets compare! Hitler had communal hatred and so does our BJP leader, Mr. L.K Advani along with the Vishwa Hindu Parishad! Then the Jews of Germany were being killed and now the Muslims of Kashmir are being muredered! But now its in a modern way! And the funny thing is that the Indian Media just talks about the road and the Amarnath Issue!
Lets hear this story about Tauseef! A small boy aged 4 and a half!
While dispersing a procession, policemen barged into a house in Sopur and hit a utensil containing boiling water in the kitchen. The hot water sprinkled on Tauseef’s body and he suffered severe burn injuries. And the CRPF guy who did it will be honoured with the prestigious medals from the Indian Army on January 26; India's Republic Day!
India is celebrating 61 glorious years of independence on 15th August! 61 years of Unity amongst Diversity. An admirable trait considering the different languages, religions and regions that make Her. But yes lets not forget! Lets not include Kashmir there ever! OK we may include one! The one who is searched, troubled and harassed in other states! If you are a Kashmiri settled in Delhi or some other part of the country, I advise you to ask your boss for a leave and sit back at your home until this independence thing passes away! And to remind you it is India's Independence day!
And where the hell are the so called political parties of Kashmir! NC, PDP and Congress to name the popular ones!! Disapperared!
I remember the days when the municipality started to kill the street dogs! The killing had not even started when a particular Maneka Gandhi jumped in to oppose the killing of those who had life!! I am desperate! We are all dogs here! Thats why the human rights people are not showing up! We need an ardent animal rights activist and a scholar to prove that we are animals!! Maybe Maneka Gandhi can save us!
