Don’t make Kashmir a graveyard: Tarigami

Senior CPM leader Mohammed Yusuf Tarigami on Tuesday said that the fact that shops and establishments are not opened through the day and schools work without children and teachers signal some sort of “unorganised” protest by the people, The Indian Express reported.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

According to report he said the people of Kashmir, both mainstream and separatists, feel humiliated and if the situation is not arrested it “might lead to something more for the rest of the country”.

In Delhi for a medical check-up, Tarigami said that “Kashmiris are going through a scenario which is terrible in our history”, and that the people of J&K, particularly those in the Valley, have lost faith in the present dispensation in Delhi.

Asked why large-scale protests are not taking place, he said, “how many times have you seen protests taking place in Tihar jail?” There is silence even in graveyards, he said. “Don’t make my Kashmir, our Kashmir a graveyard,” he said according to The Indian Express in a free-wheeling conversation at CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury’s 36, Canning Lane official residence here.

Yechury said he plans to file a fresh affidavit in the Supreme Court seeking clarification on the restrictions on Tarigami. Yechury also said the apex court had said that Tarigami was not under house arrest and there was no charge against him, but the authorities in Srinagar are not permitting him to move freely.

Tarigami, on the other hand, hit out at the government. “The situation, if not arrested, I have a firm belief that it might lead to something more for the rest of the country as a whole. It will have very serious implications for the future of our country and our polity… the shock and distress which our people are facing now is unprecedented.”

He added, “It is unprecedented in the sense that Kashmiris, irrespective of the earlier divides between mainstream, separatists, this group and that group… the whole community we feel we have been humiliated… betrayed…”

“The situation is such that leading newspapers have become government gazettes and only one political party is allowed to function,” The Indian Express quoted Tarigami as saying.
