KASHMIR PROBLEM: Essay Writing Topics


Kashmir has been a problem for us since our independence. It has a historical background of our failing and betrayals to the nation. The seeds were sown in the unnatural partition of the country.

The natural results of partition were that all Muslims ought to have gone to Pakistan and all Hindu ought to have come to Bharat. But the Hindus flowed from Pakistan to India.

The tragedy is that because of section 370 in our constitution even the President of India cannot purchase an inch of land in Kashmir, while Pakistani Muslims asserting that they belongs to India can. Thus the population of Muslims in Kashmir has been increasing by leap and bounds while others have left at least and valley. The solution lies in a firm determination to scrap section 370, give autonomy to Jammu and Ladakh and if the valley is to be surrendered to Pakistan let all the Muslims, who side with Pakistan, are asked to accompany their Kashmiri brothren to the land of their love.
