Kashmir on Afzal Guru

leave a comment »

This report in IE highlights the complexity of the political discourse on terrorism within Kashmir:

The moment the J&K Assembly was finally adjourned for the day at 12:15 pm — third adjournment since morning — after constant pandemonium, it stalled the controversial Afzal Guru clemency resolution for this Assembly session and once again exposed the complexities of mainstream politics in the state.

A positive outcome of a vote on the clemency resolution was not the only issue, the possibility of a discussion and a vote itself had put almost all major parties in a fix. The three major parties here could not take a clear stance on the resolution but everyone privately agreed that both acceptance and rejection of the resolution in a vote would become a political liability for them.

And as soon as the proceedings began on Wednesday, a clever political strategy with an aim to disrupt the House played out even before the resolution moved by Independent legislator Engineer Rashid for the Parliament attack convict would come up for a discussion. It was third day of the autumn session and Congress members including ministers started shouting slogans and disrupting the proceedings.
