Extremely well said

Would want the speaker to engage more with Kashmiri people outside Kashmir than engaging people who are born and brought with an Anti-India agenda in their heads. Give COMPASSION to those KASHMIRI PANDITS who don't have a roof over their heads till now and those who are living in camps in Jagti, Jammu.

Powerful Insight !

Hindu extremists dont like to see the truth and true face of hindu terrorism and dictatorship of BJP. Good job exposing Modi hindu extremist Nation. Until India becomes a secular country there is not hope for people. Democracy is useless in hindu extremists or any religion majority nation. Successful Nations have to follow the law models like Sweden and Canada else wait for next generation see if they evolve.

We have suffered toomaney separatists for toolong. This man is one pawn in the hands of separatists. They look like normal people. They seem calm, cool. But all spys behave normal. At the end of their life they write a book telling how they made money spying for the enemy again make money.
