Strong arguments from the world of deipnosophy
Primary Red of Secular-Right makes some excellent arguments at a New York dinner table.
Thus, itâ€™s just as important to defend a peopleâ€™s existing freedom, as it is to support a not free peopleâ€™s quest for it. The former is Indiaâ€™s moral and strategic imperative in Kashmir.
We may reasonably negotiate with Pakistan on issues of terrorism, river waters, gas pipelines, and free trade, but there is no moral basis to settle these in the currency of Kashmiri freedom. Neither Indians nor Pakistanis, and crucially not even Kashmiris themselves, have the moral right to barter this freedom away. [A must-read post from Secular-Right]
