Open Letter

on 15th of $eptember 2011 the British Parliament is going to discuss Kashmir for the first time after partition of India in 1947. Mr steve Baker an MP for Wycombe recently prapossed this dicussion before Parliament’s Backbench Business Committee and was supported by Jason McCartney MP, Andrew Griffiths MP, Denis MacShane MP and Nic Dakin MP. Argueing for a debate on Amnesty International’s recent report on human rights in Indian-occupied Kashmir (East Kashmir). With these developments in hindsight i was forced to write this open letter to Mr. Baker and the British Parliamnet.

Dear Mr. Baker,
Thanks for taking notice of what is
happening in East Kashmir (which
you prefer to call Indian Occupied
Kashmir). It seems that our body
count has finally become worthy to
be discussed.
With the two countries (India &
Pakistan) happy with the status quo
it has become necessary for the
world powers to intervene but alas
their attitude towards kashmir
made us (kashmiri’s) wonder if even
we were considered human. But thanks to
your initiative we are seing a
change in the making but yet are
forced not to hope for anything
(learning from past experiences).
Even with many UN resolutions
regarding Kashmir nothing has
changed (infact it has worsened)we are still being
butchered unabated in broad day
light thanks to world community
which is acting like an ostrich.
Let me try to answer the question
”why the two countries are happy
with status quo and why there is
need for the world to intervene at
earliest.” Well kashmir has become
the stick with which both beat each
other. In addition to this both the
countries are sharing (plundring)the natural
resources of kashmir otherwise to
which they have no legal or moral
ownership. With these things in
mind do you think that the two
countries would want to resolve
the issue with out any external
pressure, i don’t think so. But till
the world powers decide to
intervene , one thing for sure is
going to change that is our body
Now its upto you people how large
a tophy (of human bodies) you want.

Resident of
East Kashmir
