Letters to the Editor
Sir, This refers to Subramanian Swamy's article, `India's bleeding head wound' ( Nov. 5 ). The suggestion that the areas of Kashmir on either side of the ceasefire line under the aegis of their respective Election Commissions initiate a process of electing members to a Joint Kashmir Assembly negates our stand that Kashmir (including PoK) is a part and parcel of India.
Sir, Mr. Swamy's contention that cross-border terrorism from Pakistan is because of the Kashmir problem is not correct. There was no terrorism before 1989 in Kashmir. It all started with the withdrawal of the Soviet Union from Afghanistan and Gen. Zia-ul-Haq's call to inflict a "thousand cuts" on India to avenge the loss of Bangladesh.
