The current move by the government has significant resemblances with the tools employed by the British Empire in putting an entire population under subjugation. The modus operandi of such a rule – measures, technicalities and tricks – that have been associated with colonial era continues to be the dominant and desirable strategy for a postcolonial state like India.

I scratched the first lines soon after the 1991 Gulf War, and the wars, of course, never stopped. After 9/11, the topic of a distant territory used by an imperial power to incarcerate and torture ‘terrorists’ became eerily close, with the parallels between Andaman and Guantanamo.

The BJP and their supporters can’t deny the fact that even today the indicators of growth and development for Jammu & Kashmir are better than the indicators for Gujarat. The kind of poverty that we see in Gujarat and in rest of India often we don’t see in the streets of Kashmir.

While praising the teacher for the development of children, the NEP is silent on the plight and the action plan on the contractual teachers in the country. It only says that the system of para teacher must be stopped by 2022. It is silent on what is to be done with a large number of contractual teachers who have been recruited under the schemes like Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) and District Primary Education Programme (DPEP).

In criminal law special situations need special kind of laws. The crime of mob lynching needs a specific law which can address limitations which arise in our criminal justice system. Also, the defense of multiplicity of laws does not render solution to these problems.

The struggle of Kashmiris for political and economic rights, justice and dignity predates the birth of India and Pakistan. According to Geelani, it is important to contextualise and historicize the struggle of Kashmiris for independence which can be traced to the 16th century when it was taken over by the Mughals.
