At a time when even prominent Opposition leaders in India were denied permission to enter Jammu and Kashmir (J&K), the debate over with by European Union (EU) lawmakers appears to be like to be suspicious (Entrance online page, “European lawmakers originate J&K talk over with,” Oct. 30). What is noteworthy extra perplexing is the lawmakers’ statement that they’re here now to now not intervene in India’s politics and that they back New Delhi’s efforts to end terrorism. If their talk over with is now not for assessing the realities in Kashmir, why was as soon because it organized at all? Changed into it staunch for them to talk over with vacationer spots, consult with a handful of people in moderation vetted by the Centre and in the destroy give an ‘all-is-gorgeous’ certificates? This appears to be like to be one more fragment of drama enacted by the Bharatiya Janata Party to sing that even international lawmakers were impressed with the problem in Kashmir.

D. Sethuraman,


The criticism emanating from the Opposition events over the debate over with of 23 Contributors of European Parliament (MEPs) to J&K is now not without rationale. The Centre’s gesture to enable the MEPs to enter the erstwhile Speak, when our have MPs were denied the privilege, is an affront to Indian Parliament. It is time the BJP executive lifts restrictions imposed on the folks of Kashmir and restores significant rights guaranteed by our Structure to them without any extend. Absence or lack of effort by the Central executive to address the rising apprehensions from the realm neighborhood over human rights violations in Kashmir would supreme erode further the already puny back it enjoys over its decision to dilute Article 370.
