Kashmir: A Tale of Partition (In 2 Vols.)

M.G. Chitkara (Author)
Synopsis From cradle of grave man has to face problem in life. Someone his own creation and some are attributed to the creator. Kashmir problem is the creation of man-the leaders an outcome of their pride, prejudices, ego and false notions. The partition was forced by religious bigots, ignoring that religion unites and not divides. Thus, the genesis of the India’s problem lies in the partition. Only chaos followed the partition of India, neither the Hindus nor the Muslims, have benefited from the Partition. Partition gave us the Kashmir problem, which in turn has given rise to the tragic migration of entire Hindu population from the valley. Undoubtedly, Kashmir Problem is the lethal combination of Islamic fundamentalism and Pakistan’s political adventurism. Kashmir is an unfinished agenda of partition, and outcome of two-nation theory. The moment myth of two nation theory explodes, the Indo-Pakistan differences will melt in thin air. The two countries will devote themselves to the task of storming the fortress of poverty, and economic backwardness. Ultimately the people may feel and realise that they no longer need two countries and unite. Dr. Mahbub-ul-Haq, Special Advisor to the United Nations Development Programme Administration and a renowned Pakistani Economist while releasing the Human Development Report for 1992 said: If Pakistan and India freeze their military expenditure at its current level during the years 1990’s they could reap peace dividend of 50 billion dollars during the current decade, enough to put all their children in schools, provide primary health care and clean drinking water to everyone and to banish man—nutrition by 2,000. Even solution to the basic problems of the people of Indian sub-continent lie in their unity, understanding, cooperation and mutual trust. The question of belonging to one family, for many people in India and Pakistan is not merely an abstract idea but an actual fact. The division of India on the basis of religion and separatist attitude was a curse and permitting it to continue on the same basis is a sin. We the people of India were and are one people. We were never two people. We were never two Indians. From the Himalayas in the North to Hind Mahasagar in the South, Tripura in East and NWFP in the West is situated a culturally compact unit. The people lived here as one people, one nation. Imagine the kind of change that would come about if India and Pakistan pooled their material resources. A formidable force, not industrial infrastructure of India becomes part of Pakistan’s strength and Pakistan’s geo-strategic location as well as defence potential becomes an expansion of India’s strength. A sub-continent sans conflict would become a power factor of great significance on the world scene.
