MAKE PERMANENT PEACE IN KASHMIR VALLEY A WAY OF LIFE

The Himalayan valley of Kashmir has been home to sages and now it has become home to violence.

Following facts will bring your attention to one of the gems of our country which is in dire need of healing and all of us together can do it.

Deaths in Kashmir

Disturbances in Kashmir Valley started in 1989 and continues till date.  Despite efforts by former political leaders, we still witness the disturbances in this state for 29 years now. 

As per statistics and Wikipedia, more than one lakh deaths have been reported in Kashmir Valley including locals and armed forces between 1989 to 2018.

Arms and ammunition

India is the fifth largest military spender (2016) in the world and the largest importer of arms, accounting for 13 percent of the world’s total imports between 2012 and 2016, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.  Main use of arms is required for protection in J&K and North East borders.

Education system has degraded.

40% of youth is jobless.  Schools and colleges shut down each time there is disturbance.  Exchange of any training, education and transformation specialists to the valley to and from other parts of the nation has become next to impossible as they would get killed to bring value through transformation.  HR Leaders deny attending any conference if venue destination is Kashmir.

Anyone who wants to implement better educational measures supported through govt. schemes is under threat.

Abduction

Youth including children are abducted from remote villages either for training for militancy, suicide attacks or reinforcing fear by killing them.

Migration

According to Indian Govt., more than 60,000 families have migrated from Kashmir to save their lives.  They have either deserted or burnt properties left in valley.  More than 5000 people died because of unhygienic conditions in refugee camps and sun strokes as the elderly population couldn’t bear the extremes of temperatures.

Affected Tourism

People all over the world wish to visit “paradise of earth” but are confused about the good timings to visit valley owing to their dependence on media.  Tourism is worst hit and pilgrims of Amarnath are always under risk.

Freedom from Fear

People seek freedom from fear. The valley has become an ocean of tears. The locals, the displaced locals and the ones who travel to Kashmir have no guarantee of life. They don’t know if they would return safe to their destinations.

Peace Appeal

The list of violence and damage to life, mindset and property is endless.  We, the citizens of India appeal our deeply venerated Prime Minister Narendra Modi for taking concrete steps to bring permanent peace in valley as we believe that he is the one who has proven skills of compelling communication and that permanent peace can prevail.

Please support “Permanent Peace in Kashmir Valley” movement and let paradise be paradise.
