Partition, Indo-Pak Relations and Kashmir

Ram Puniyani (Author)

Partition, Indo-Pak Relations and Kashmir is a book that says, the only solution to the Kashmir imbroglio can be and has to be peaceful. Looking at the issue in the context of the subcontinent’s partition, it notes how Indo-Pak relations are held hostage to Kashmir and the vice-versa. The book says, in the 21st century, the process of secularisation has remained incomplete in India, Pakistan (and Bangladesh) and fundamentalism and communalism are rampant in all of these nations. The first major war between these uncomfortable neighbours took place on the issue of Kashmir, resulting in one third of Kashmir becoming ‘Azad Kashmir’ in the military-mullah ruled Pakistan, with lakhs of soldiers breathing down the neck of Kashmiri civilians in democratic India. Dwelling on this unhappy situation, the book also talks of one remarkable nonagenarian communist from Kerala, BM Kutty, who has made Karachi his home for the last 70 years; how Indo-Pak cricket matches are seen more as India-Pakistan war; how legendary film star Dilip Kumar (Yusuf Khan), and the modern ones like Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan are humiliated time and time just because of their religion. The book sets its readers thinking.
