Kashmir: When will the window of peace open?

Rediff News Bureau | August 05, 2008

What started as a land transfer issue has now become a burning issue that threatens the entire Kashmir valley. Not a day passes without violent protests and bandhs in Jammu and Kashmir [Images]. Even the Azad government fell over the issue, but the violence did not stop. Three lives were lost on Monday. 

 

Alarmed, the Centre has now convened an all-party meeting.

 

Be it militancy from across the border or local issues, ordinary Kashmiris bear the brunt. The Paradise on Earth is in shatters. So are the lives.

 

 

Here a family -- in tears-- looks from their window as the body of a protestor is taken through the street on Monday.
