      This issue has also been mostly untouched by civil society organizations. If Clinton and Albright knew something more, they should have been candid about it, instead of pushing everything under the carpet to maintain cozy relations with India. When it comes to celebrating and feasting on the festivals, may it be Hindu or Muslim or Buddhist, Kashmiris are a charm to watch.

Nevertheless, many Western scholars argue that in its earliest stage Sikhism was a movement within the Hindu tradition; Nanak, they point out, was raised a Hindu and eventually belonged to the Sant tradition of northern Indiaa movement associated with the great poet and mystic Kabir —

      Things have worsened. Sikhs in Kashmir have faced hostilities since People protested for an investigation into the incident, but the trigger happy security forces killed nine more people in firing on the demonstrators in Brakpora.

Indian Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and his deputy Sukhbir Singh Badal appealed to the people to remain peaceful while heavy police force has been deployed in the district to avoid any untoward incident.

Sikhs in Kashmir book

Over 70 years down the line, the state, separatists and civil society in the region have not paid any heed to the issues concerning Sikhs. The trail of threats and fear, which no Kashmiri Sikh ever speaks about, is mistaken as a sign of 'communal harmony'.

Sri Kant Purohit, who was recently arrested, but later released for his involvement with a Hindu extremist group involved in bombings and other violent activities, was once posted with Military Intelligence in Kashmir. The army also claimed they were able to identify the men with the help of another militant who was arrested and aided them in locating their whereabouts.

This onset of the armed insurgency also witnessed the migration of some Sikhs and Muslim families from the valley. The conflict has affected their earnings and psycho-social well-being.

Sikhs belonging to Faridkot and its adjacent Moga district in Indian Punjab have been holding protests for past two days after more than torn up pages from Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh holy book were found near a gurdwara in Bargari village of the district on Monday.

This is a comprehensive account of the vital developments that occurred during the crucial period of Kashmir political history that it focuses on.

One factdion of insurgents wants complete independence, while the other wants Kashmir to be merged with Muslim-dominated Pakistan. However, this only raises more questions. This reflects very badly on a country that claims to be the champion of democracy and human rights.

If we connect all these dots together we can safely conclude that there is something fishy about the tragedy and the way its investigation has been handled. Finally it examines the process of transforming the Muslim Conference into the National Conference.

A useful account of the various socio-religious and political reform movement that contributed to the social and political awakening of Kashmir is also given.
