Next step should be making gilgit baltistan as a seperate UT. It will be perfect. And we can add remaining PoK to J&k .

Mint has a piece by Hasseb Drabu on Kashmir. His contention is J&K is well developed compared to so many other States. So the argument that abolition of Article 370 is needed for economic development is wrong.

Yeah, with a ton of GoI funds pumped in, and almost zero taxation. Were it not for the handouts, they would be piss poor like Nepal (apologies to Nepali brothers, just an observation not judgment).

Please consider using these in any future maps. Different terminology applies for Patinjare Ladakh, Vadakkan Arunachal etc

First we need to look at the subsidies people are getting as on today. What is the price or rice, wheat and so on in J&K? We need to get the details.

OK! Match is on. Rules relaxed, schools re-open, Doval visits downtown Srinagar.
I have a feeling that quite a few have gone on vacation and Infrastructure Skills Training to UP, Arunachal, etc. Maybe to Gujarat. :mrgreen:
With Dovalji & Co. there, I doubt whether those pictures of polis standing around relaxing with guns pointed down, was all that they used the past 4 days for.

Brave of Shri Doval. I presume that they don't have buses in Srinagar on Fridin afternoon, unlike Bengaluru?

Education in Kashmir JNU is certainly not lagging: it is on par with Pakistan

Aejaz Ahmad Rather, Jawaharlal Nehru Students' Union general secretary said, "They are saying that it has been done with an agenda to bring development. But according to figures, Gujarat is lacking in development as opposed to Jammu and Kashmir in many indices".


Fact: KV has more soosai bummers per (de)capita than any nation except Bilayat.

And if u wondered why Sitaram Yechury was stopped at the airport:

A Delhi-based university student from Jammu, said, she thought the revoking of the article and its repercussions are debatable, but the way in which it was scrapped is "extremely undemocratic".
"Besides, the environmental impact on the state of such a move would be catastrophic. Moreover, if this is seen as a gateway to development, it would only be beneficial to the capital-owning bourgeoisie, who can buy land and open up their businesses, and would not really benefit the common masses. The gap between the rich and the poor would increase," she alleged.

True. The amount of money pumped in should have put Kashmir on par with Switzerland. Here they are reduced to saying "look we are better than Bihar".

Indian Navy puts all warships, naval bases on high alert
Indian Navy has put all its bases and warships on high alert. Measures taken after Article 370 was revoked by the government and also due to possibility of Pakistan-backed terrorists carrying out any attack


There is no truth to the rumor that pictures of Karachi waterfront towers owned by Pakistani generals, are being mass-printed and distributed to IN gunners and missile-targeters.

Never for a moment underestimate the bakiness of the bakis. They have worked to destroy their society, their country and their future just to revenge the "fall of Dakha".

Thought the current situation is not similar to 1971, the way they have been outplayed and made to look like fools now would be equally painful. It is very likely that they will take the same line on Kashmir and make some play to revenge loss of H&D.

Per Al Jazeera, which I am not going to cite with link here, protestors (translation: stone-throwers) are chased into houses, softened up pacified and taken away. Also pellet-guns and tear gas used of course, to target innocent sweet children going about their usual bissful stone-throwing.

While I would love for the land of PORK (formerly called PoK) to integrate back into Bharat, I am worried about the fallout too. Keeping aside the challenge of actually taking it over, we will be saddled with lakhs of paki-ised Peacefools who are full of hate for Hindus and other varieties of Kafirs. They will now gain citizenship to India and have a free rein to travel all over to cause their usual trouble.

How do we handle this?

My other question is why wasn't Jammu separated from Kashmir and the entire state made into 3 UTs? Jammu is mostly peaceful so the focus for cleanup would be Kashmir UT.

To keep Kashmir in check, of course. Once the reallocation of seats is done, and Jammu gets more seats assigned to them, expect to see the political clout of Kashmiris come down to realistic (in terms of population) levels. J&K bifurcation could have also had other ramifications.

Ladakh, OTOH, was all goodness - UTization was always called for; it would be nearly impossible to argue against it (and impossible now with JTN's eloquent LS testimony).

They did the minimum necessary to further the national goals. Kudos.

Lets worry about the aftermath, and normalizing if existing Kashmir valley. I see folks talking about Pok, Aksai Chin and Balochistan " the Mudi sud get them all" type of requests, but I am quite nervous about BIF closing on this opportunity to create further ruckus. Hopefully new laws should prevent that, but still KM majority region can be restive. That needs to be quelled brutally especially if the mosques/masjids revert back to their old ways of spewing venom on Fridin brayers. Lets see how things shape up. Lets digest the meal in peacemeal fashion

As someone mentioned above, taking over GB should be the highest priority. PORK can come later. GB has lesser population, and we can also disconnect Bakistan from the Cheen and also establish direct connection with Afghanistan and hence Central Asia.

KJo, the population of GB and AJK has a lot of settlers from Pak Punjab and NWFP pushed in by their army. Real population will be much less. Once it comes under Indian control we can ask all settlers to leave using a NRC update like excercise.

IMO another shocker is coming. IMO, the population of J&K cannot be what it is stated as with the kind of TFR they have since census was reinitiated in 2001 you cannot have that kind of growth in population. I will not be surprised if the M and non-M pop is 60:40 or 55:45. This is corroborated by the fact that the average number of voters in Kashmir assembly constituencies is much less than in Jammu. The PDP/NC, etc claim it is because of people not registering to vote but I think even then actual pop may be 15-20% less. We will find out once the national NRC and Adhaar are introduced in J&K. We will get an indication when the delimitation happens.

Next couple of years are needed to stabilize the new J&K UT. Unless Pak does some mischief before that we have to think of ways to make a move on AJK and GB which is now legally Indian territory. But my guess is Pak will give India the opportunity just like Balakot.

I do complain, though, about a picture I saw: "Lockdown left trucks stranded on the Jammu-Srinagar highway". Isn't that a bit too much paki? Who is the administrator under whose jurisdiction that happened? Why not send the trucks back to wherever they can rest in a parking lot, not blocking the road? Arent' the drivers human, let alone Indians?

Evidently the big mosque was closed and the small ones open, enabling prayers to happen in a distributed peer-to-peer fashion instead of on a central server https://www.dawn.com/news/1498954/indian-forces-on-high-alert-after-kashmir-friday-prayers. I am sure we are learning fast from the Chinese in these matters. Next will be declaring downtown Srinagar an earthquake hazard and resettling everyone in multistorey units outside the city like the Chinese did in Kashgar https://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/06/world/asia/china-remodels-an-ancient-silk-road-city-and-an-ethnic-rift-widens.html.

More vacations to Taj Mahal
20 more 'troublemakers' shifted from Kashmir to Agra
The Jammu and Kashmir authorities airlifted a fresh batch of 20 "potential troublemakers" from Srinagar to Agra, officials told PTI on Friday.

The people, who have a history of being involved in separatist activities, were taken out of Kashmir in a special Indian Air Force plane, they said. They are alleged to be active members of separatist groups in Kashmir.

They were taken in a special IAF plane to Uttar Pradesh and lodged in Agra Central Jail. This comes a day after the authorities airlifted about 25 to 70 people as a precautionary measure in the wake of constitutional changes made by the government.


Do they use those cargo nets like the US C130s "renditioning" direct from Bagaram AFB to Guano Bay?

All these rascals have together accumulated tens of thousands of crores/billions of dollars in assets by siphoning off GoI money and also getting money from external forces.

To recover all costs of maintaining these freeloaders over the years (security cover et al) and to pay the costs of their house arrests/transfers outside J&K, I would strongly urge Amit Shah to attach and transfer all their assets into the J& K UT treasury.

IMO, one of the reasons was not to make the division by religion, because that is Two Nation Theory after all.
Second, the people first most likely to move into Kashmir are in Jammu; many of the Kashmiri Pandits are in Jammu, I think. Perhaps best if J&K are in one admin unit.
Third, much anti-India mischief is feasible if K valley is on its own.
