    :disagree: I preffer life in Pk to be honest with you, it's more relaxed and enjoyable, you have no clue about Pakistani lifestyle, all you know is what you see on fox news....

    Yes I am sure my atheist and agnostic friends that are well known are facing such dangers (sarcasm intended)

    And yet you have republicans, ground zero mosque protests, attacks on minorities and Islamophobia rampant.

    Me thinks it's the lack of literacy and education, your idea of Pakistan is screwed up.
    -period.

    1.In fact there are three sides. And the third Kashmiri side is also subdivided into pro-Pak, pro-India and pro-independence. Then there are various nationalities living within J&K. Punjabis dominate Pak Kashmir.

    2. But the crucial factor is WILL THE AMERICANS AGREE? If they agree to a solution then that will be sold to the various parties in modalities well known. And the Yankees will only allow a solution only when they seek peace in SA. At the moment that outcome doesn't appear to be near. After all Americans have to Sell Arms and advance loans for Urban Renewal.

    They say ignorance is bliss, your ex President Musharraf of Pakistan, observed in February 2002, “Today we are the poorest, the most illiterate, the most backward, the most unhealthy, the most un-enlightened, the most deprived, and the weakest of all the human race.”

    Army launches cricket tournament to bring peace in Valley

    [​IMG]

    Summer is usually a busy time for the army and the police in Jammu and Kashmir, with protests from separatists and stone pelting youth keeping them on tenterhooks. This year too the security personnel are having a hard time. But rather than engaging militants or stone pelting youth on the streets, they are busy organising the Kashmir Premier League (KPL).

    Being played on the lines of the Indian Premier League, the KPL is also a Twenty20 tournament where 14 teams are battling it out to corner glory.

    Time and again sports has been used as a medium to bring social change. Be it in India or elsewhere, sports has acted as the fillip and the passport to a better life.

    In the North-East, disciplines such as football, boxing and archery had made a major impact in weaning youth from drugs. Likewise, in Kashmir, the army wants to use cricket not only to improve ties with the people, but to also provide the youth a chance to showcase their talent and hopefully make it big some day.

    An initiative of GOC 15 Corps, Lt-Gen. Syed Atta Hasnain, the T20 cricket tournament is part of the army's 'Operation Sadhbhavana' - a public outreach campaign.

    And that the campaign is bearing fruit can be noticed with the drop in protests, while stone pelting - it had been a major cause of concern both at the state and the Centre with the death of 112 people, mostly youth last year - has become almost non-existent. And in this atmosphere of peace and normalcy, tourism too witnessed a boom in the Valley this summer.

    On Monday, the cricket tournament was thrown open by chief minister Omar Abdullah. The first match was played between Srinagar Shir Dils and Budgam Badshahs at the Delhi Public School grounds. Fourteen teams from all the 10 districts of Jammu and Kashmir are taking part in the tournament whose final is slated for August 3. The winner will receive a cash award of Rs 5 lakh with the runners-up getting Rs 3 lakh.

    The importance of the sporting event was subtly acknowledged by the chief minister but he also had a word of advice for the army. He said the tournament should not be abandoned in the years to come or else it would give of an impression that it was organised to avoid another summer of discontent in the Valley.

    "I hope this tournament prospers and succeeds in future. I urge GOC Hasnain that this tournament should continue in future as well. It should not vanish from next year. Then people will presume that this tournament was not for our boys, cricket or their future, but was organised to avoid another year of turbulence, especially since the situation was not good in the last three summers. This will also be cheating the players," Omar said.

    Hasnain assured Omar that the tournament would be held every year. He also expressed satisfaction with the enthusiasm shown by the people towards the tournament.

    "There is great enthusiasm among the cricketers in the Valley to be a part of the tournament. In one district 84 teams participated in the qualifying rounds," Hasnain said.

    But the separatists are not impressed with the army's latest effort. The hardline faction of the Hurriyat Conference said that the army would not be able to wash away the crimes it had committed on the people of Kashmir.

    "The Indian Army is involved in war crimes in Kashmir. They are involved in fake encounters, custodial killings, rape and arson. They can't wash these crimes by holding cricket matches and tournaments," Ayaz Akbar, spokesman of the Syed Ali Shah Geelani- led hardline faction of the Hurriyat Conference, said.

    The massive street protests that swept the region last year were triggered after three youth were killed in a fake encounter by the army in May. More than a hundred youth died in the protests that lasted through the summer. Since then the army and the police are on a campaign to improve their image.

    Akbar said the state government and security agencies have imposed a "peace of graveyard" in Kashmir.

    "They don't allow us to move around, keep us under house arrest and conduct these shows to show that Kashmiris have forgotten their crimes. They have not," Akbar said.

    He said the army and the state are carrying out politics "in the name of cricket", but warned that it won't succeed.

    "Unless the issue of Kashmir is not solved in accordance with the wishes of the Kashmiris and the UN resolution, these things ( cricket matches) will not help," he said.

    Azadi slogans echo during police football tournament

    Srinagar, July 07 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the participants in the final match of football tournament shouted anti-India and pro-freedom slogans at a stadium in Srinagar.

    The final match of the tournament–2011, organised by the Jammu and Kashmir Police was played between JK Forest-XI and Punjab Police of India at the Bakshi Stadium in Srinagar. The puppet Chief Minister Omar Abdullah was chief guest on the occasion.

    “Everyone at the stadium was taken aback when the supporters and participants of JK Forest-XI shouted slogans in favour of Azadi,” a spectator told media men.

    The spectators shouted anti-India slogans perhaps because they saw the game as a contest between India and Kashmir, said another spectator.

    In a thrilling match, Jammu and Kashmir Forest-XI beat the Punjab Police by a solitary goal.

    Militant commits suicide inside mosque in north Kashmir

    A militant committed suicide on Wednesday by shooting himself inside a mosque in Sopore town of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district after he was surrounded by security forces, a police spokesman said.

    Tamir Ahmad Khuroo alias Junaid opened fire on a CRPF bunker at Arampora in Sopore, 55 kms from here at 11.50 am, he said.

    When a CRPF party led by Sub-Inspector Badloo Ram chased the militant, he took refuge inside a mosque. As security forces cordoned off the mosque, the militant shot himself in his head, the spokesman said.

    “A local resident, Mohammad Akbar Sofi, entered the mosque and confirmed that a body along with a pistol was lying inside the mosque. The body was removed with the help of two other civilians and some (Muslim) police personnel,” he said.

    A pistol with magazine, three empty cartridges and a live round were recovered from the mosque, he said.

    Officials had earlier said that the militant was killed in an encounter with security forces.

    According to the spokesman, the militant was involved in stone pelting incidents and several cases were registered against him.

    Khuroo had previously worked in the shop of Ubaid Tariq Untoo, who was involved in firing on a police station in Sopore recently. Four AK 47 magazines were recovered from that shop.

    For the last three months, Khuroo was working in the clinic of Dr Mohammad Ramzan Sofi where two militants of LeT - Kalimullah and Wasim Ganai - were killed on March 12, he added.

    I really feel hanging on Kashmir issue for both INDIA and PAKISTAN is not good and the blame game will never end. We have moved far and in current situation all that J&K need is good governance, Education and most importantly job for the people it's all that is needed to turn the tide.

    And for Pakistan it has tried for almost 60 years to get hold of Kashmir and it has only left them in more deep $h!t instead they can work with what they have in hand [land of Pakistan] and work for their betterment.

    worrying for 170 million is more important than 12,500,000 in our side who are in better position if you like to here or not.

    Also who wish to be with Pakistan can cross if that's what they really need who is stooping them ?

    No infiltration from across LoC this year: Indian Army

    JAMMU: There has been no infiltration from across the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir so far this year due to the heightened vigil of troops along the border with Pakistan , an army officer said Saturday.

    General Officer Commanding of 16 Corps, Lt. Gen. J.P. Nehra said that there were approximately 400 terrorists waiting across the LoC to sneak into India , but they have not been able to succeed so far.

    "It is because our troops are vigilant on the LoC, they are equipped with sophisticated equipments that enables them to see clearly even during the bad weather or during night," Nehra told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

    He said the army has set up a "multi-tier anti-infiltration grid along the LoC, which also has served as a crucial factor in checking infiltration".

    Although there has been no activity from across the border after the July 13 Mumbai blasts, Nehra said, "if they do so, they will get a befitting answer".

    The officer added that as per the army's information, there are 42 terrorist training camps across the LoC.
