NEW YORK/NEW DELHI:  India’s Consul General in New York Sandeep Chakravorty has told a gathering of Kashmiri Hindus that the security situation in the newly-created Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir will improve to allow the Kashmiri Pandits to return, and India should follow the model of Israel.
In a video circulating on social media, that has been attacked by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, Chakravorty also told his audience that India has “successfully stalled” the international diplomatic onslaught over Kashmir, following the move to revoke its special status in August.
“We have to go beneath the reasoning and understand why it (revoking Article 370) was done. I think somebody spoke about the Jewish issue, they (Jews) kept their culture alive for 2,000 years, outside their land, and they went back. I think we all have to keep Kashmiri culture alive, Kashmiri culture is the Indian culture, it is Hindu culture. I feel as much Kashmiri as anybody else”, he said.
“Sunanda Vashisht (Kashmiri Hindu who testified at a Congressional hearing) said Kashmir is India and India is Kashmir. None of us can imagine India without Kashmir”, he added.
“Anupamji said that in India we think about everyone else, about other’s religions, but unfortunately not everyone thinks that way. I think we made the strategic blunder that we thought that everybody is thinking like us, but everybody is not thinking like us”, he said.
“We should start thinking like others, and then only we will be able to beat them at their game. I think we have to do that, and that thinking is now coming…”, he said.
