Controversial writer Arundhati Roy – a known supporter of separatists in the Kashmir Valley who have waged a relentless war on India in the shadows has penned down her biased and lopsided views on the Indian government decision to revoking Article 370 in an international rag of newspaper – The New York Times.
I personally believe that you have a right to your point of view, it is a basic fundamental right in any democracy. That right, however, can never be misused to spread lies about your own country in order to give an advantage to an enemy country.
Arundhati Suzanna Roy is a rabble rouser and a liar. Her talks and articles are based on half-truths. Her intention is to portray India, its government and people (in particular the Hindus) in a negative light.
She is a propagandist for the enemies of India, in particular Pakistan. This is not difficult to decipher. An analysis of her written and spoken views indicate a deep hatred for India, BJP and Hindutva. That is obvious because she is a leftist in her ideology.
I do not have an issue if her thoughts were leftist or right-wing. I have a serious issue because her thoughts are anti-Indian, pro-Pakistani and in favour of naxalism.
She is in true sense is an urban-naxal and a venomous snake spewing her half-baked lies in the international media, who wait for an opportunity to put India down, as it cannot see the surge of India.
In her entire article on Kashmir – The Silence is the Loudest Sound’ – there is not a single reference to the Kashmiri Pandits.
She claims to fight for human rights, but shockingly, she does appear to consider Kashmiri Pandits as humans let alone have rights. She has never spoken of the genocide they experienced.
For those fence-sitting Indians currently being mesmerised by her article in the New York Times, could you please tell me, as Indians do you not feel ashamed that our own people – Kashmiri Pandits – who have an equal right to their land and resources in Kashmir, were forced to leave their homes under threats of being killed, women and children being raped; and we as Indians did nothing but watch this atrocity.
No one from the then and current self-claimed intellectual class such as Arundhati Roy even bothered to raise a voice to defend the rights of Kashmiri Pandits for which they have been fighting for the last three decades.
Arundhati Roy see the Muslim as a Kashmiri but does not even see the Kashmiri Hindu as a human. That’s where the bias comes in and that is what is despicable to me.
I have always advocated this moot point that if a Kashmiri can buy land and set-up a business in Goa, then I as a Goan and an Indian like the Kashmiri, must be allowed to buy land and set-up a business in Kashmir.
The Kashmiris cannot have the right to come to my state, purchase property, create a livelihood and share of my states resources and tell me that I am not welcomed to share the similar rights and liberties in Kashmir. That is not fair to me as a citizen of India.
As a Goan and as an Indian, just like the Kashmiris have opened the shops across the beaches in Goa and in different five-star hotels in my state, my business partners and I too want to set up some swanky eco-friendly resorts in Kashmir.
This fair play of opening up Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh to business has irked Arundhati Roy. I suppose her intent is that she wants the Kashmiris which are mostly Muslims right now to be under the yolk of their rich-political leaders, separatists and terrorists to earn their livelihood through stone-pelting the Indian army.
In simple terms she wants Kashmir to continue to be a burning issue for India and a rallying point for Pakistan to whine internationally. Her main aim is allow for Pakistan to continue to indulge in a proxy war with India.
Interestingly, while Arundhati Roy continues to keep the focus on Muslims and Kashmir, she fails to look at the benefits of Ladakh – mostly Buddhists – becoming a Union Territory and its resultant prosperity that will come to the people of Ladakh. Neither is she focussing on the benefits to the people of Jammu through such a progressive-thinking Indian government move.
Writers and activists like Arundhati Roy are actually empty vessels that make the most noise.
Noise, pure loud jarring noise that is irritating to be ignored and must be turned-off.
Unfortunately for noise makers like Arundhati Roy they have failed to understand that the India of today, have seen through their Pakistan-driven machinations and call-out their bluff openly and vehemently.
My simple advice to Arundhati Roy, the only people going to be interested in your lies will be the Pakistanis and Pakistanis-dressed as Indians in India; other than that we the Indians of today, will counter your every fake narrative and we do not need a rag international newspaper to carry our views.
Kashmir is a part of India. This is a fact. You can chose to live in denial but it will never change this fact.
