They can file a charge posthumously against Jawaharlal Nehru too: Arundhati Roy

Posted by Admin on November 29, 2010

Arundhati Roy

Arundhati Roy’s reaction to yesterday’s court order directing the Delhi Police to file an FIR against her for “waging war against the state”

The Hindu

My reaction to today’s court order directing the Delhi Police to file an FIR against me for waging war against the state: Perhaps they should posthumously file a charge against Jawaharlal Nehru too. Here is what he said about Kashmir:

1. In his telegram to the Prime Minister of Pakistan, the Indian Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru said, “I should like to make it clear that the question of aiding Kashmir in this emergency is not designed in any way to influence the state to accede to India. Our view which we have repeatedly made public is that the question of accession in any disputed territory or state must be decided in accordance with wishes of people and we adhere to this view.” (Telegram 402 Primin-2227 dated 27th October, 1947 to PM of Pakistan repeating telegram addressed to PM of UK).

2. In other telegram to the PM of Pakistan, Pandit Nehru said, “Kashmir’s accession to India was accepted by us at the request of the Maharaja’s government and the most numerously representative popular organization in the state which is predominantly Muslim. Even then it was accepted on condition that as soon as law and order had been restored, the people of Kashmir would decide the question of accession. It is open to them to accede to either Dominion then.” (Telegram No. 255 dated 31 October, 1947).


3. In his broadcast to the nation over All India Radio on 2nd November, 1947, Pandit Nehru said, “We are anxious not to finalise anything in a moment of crisis and without the fullest opportunity to be given to the people of Kashmir to have their say. It is for them ultimately to decide

    Arundhati’s opinion is completely wrong becz of many reasons.RajaHarisingh never like 2join his province as a part of Pakistan.In 1947 Pak army plus some tribles captured a part of kashmir.(POK)Nehru did many foolish things.In Modern India v never allow 2 divideIndia anymore.Every Partition is India,some states keep muslim majority. if they want apart from india why should v consider 2 fulfill their desire? Arundhati know fully well that in Kashmir the fire and riots r all coming from Pak terrorists,saidalish gilani,Beegum mehaboobaMuftiahamedsaid’s pdp party,some criminals.that is all.when Kashmir divided no doudt other states of India want freedom.the result India vil become a small territory – before Independence-like modern Russia.USSR divided into 15 pieces and most of them r changed into muslim territories.

    What Arundhati Roy says is relevant ,because Kashmir people should decide their destiny by their own way ,which is given assurance by then prime minister Jawaharlal Nahru to Hari Sing the ruler of Kashmir ,later on in which all successive governments seems to have breach of trust towards Kashmirs and the issue became conflagration and should be resolved politically not the way military ,in this sense let them decide their future by conducting the plebiscite .
