To tackle Kashmir conundrum, govt vows more tough action, aid - Livemint
Srinagar: India will go on hunting militants in Kashmir despite widespread protests over the killing of a young separatist commander, officials said, as the government bets that force coupled with development will quell rebellion in the restive... The strategy for the Muslim-majority region contested by nuclear-armed neighbours India and Pakistan has worked in part. The number of militants crossing into Jammu and Kashmir state from Pakistan to launch attacks against India has dropped in the last few years, and home-grown fighters are estimated to number only around 100, according to one security official. That has not prevented violent protests and rioting from breaking out when security forces killed Burhan Wani, a separatist militant commander and a Kashmiri, last Friday. At least 34 people were killed—almost all shot by Indian security forces—and more than 1,500 people wounded in the worst violence in Kashmir since 2010, underlining how the crackdown on militants is not enough to solve a conundrum that has... “But no one seems to be clear on how to get into engagement with the people on the ground. Under Modi, whose BJP is also in a coalition government in Kashmir, the federal government has taken a harder stance on engaging in political dialogue with the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, a separatist alliance. While Hurriyat leaders travelling to Delhi and meeting Pakistani officials had been accepted before, Modi’s government has objected to such interactions, saying Pakistan should not interfere in Indian affairs. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, the head of the alliance, said separatist political leaders felt isolated. “The government of India cannot continue to deal with Kashmir with a clampdown,” he said. The state’s deputy chief minister, Nirmal Singh of the BJP, said the government was ready to engage with the Hurriyat under a legal framework. A senior BJP mandarin in New Delhi also said the government was open to talking to the Hurriyat, but did not appreciate it when they spoke with Pakistan. He added that the government will continue to go after militants, but with time it hoped the people in Kashmir would “realize that their anger is misdirected. “Be it jobs, education, health or any other amenities, the Kashmiri population gets all the same opportunities and benefits as any other Indian,” said the BJP official. A senior government official in New Delhi said Wani was a criminal facing 14 separate cases, including the murder of elected politicians and security forces, and that popular support for him was beside the point. In Wani’s case, the security crackdown appears to explain his path towards militancy, and raises the possibility that other Kashmiri youths may follow. His father, school headmaster Mohammad Muzaffar Wani, told Reuters in an interview last year that Wani’s decision to take up arms was linked to an incident in which he and his brother were beaten by Indian police.www.livemint.com
How to Furnish a New Life for Penn State's International Students - State College News
Your life is a blur of confusion as you deal with a new setting, a new culture, a new language and a new academic system. Emotionally, you may be starting to feel homesick and lonely. And you may fear that Americans will reject you because of their feelings about your home nation. Faced with upcoming bills for rent and tuition, you’re not sure you can afford basic items like a bed, dresser or desk. Even if you find the money for such purchases, you have no truck to transport those items and no friends to help you carry them. “Many times,” says Bill Saxton, a leader of ICF, “I’ve been in the apartments of international students where they have a bare mattress on a floor and maybe a table and two chairs. And that’s it for a 1 or 2-bedroom apartment. So, it’s a point of need for the new international students, and we have the privilege of helping to meet that need through the Garage Giveaway. ” People who know my background — I grew up in State College, graduated from Penn State in 1974 and then lived elsewhere until 2013— almost always ask me one question. “What is the biggest change,” they say, “from the State College you left in the ‘70s to the State College of today. ” And I give this answer: “The biggest change is the huge increase in Penn State’s population of international students. ” Some folks might think my answer is biased since I’ve spent the last 30 years of my life in full-time ministry to international students — helping to meet their practical needs, social needs and spiritual needs. But really, I’m just telling it like it is… and like it was. Today, there are more than 8,000 international students and scholars at Penn State, but I’m sure there were fewer than a thousand in the mid-1970s. Back then, you wouldn’t have heard Mandarin Chinese being spoken at Weis Market and you wouldn’t have heard Arabic conversations in Starbucks — if there had been a Starbucks in State College. These thousands of international students have added so much cultural variety to our community, so of course we want to help meet their practical needs. It should be noted that not all international students at Penn State have needs for free furniture, small appliances and kitchen ware. Just last week, I drove through the parking lot of a local apartment complex that caters to internationals students who can afford furnished apartments and “the comfort and amenities of a resort. ” Impressive cars were everywhere, but my eye went to five vehicles that were parked in one row-- a Porsche, a Mercedes, a Lexus, a BMW and another Porsche. Such affluence is the exception, however, and not the rule. Here are a couple of comments from the past: “The event was very helpful to international students who move to State College with (only) light luggage. The staff members were friendly, and they helped us move the selected items to everyone’s apartment. I got a very good desk and used it for the next two years. From the standpoint of quality, the ICF organizers don’t want “junk,” but they also don’t expect mint condition. “We would be glad to have any things that you would feel comfortable in giving to your son and daughter to furnish their apartment if they went away to college,” says Saxton.www.statecollege.com
