Indian and Pakistani Publics Show Flexibility
A WorldPublicOpinion.org poll of the Indian and Pakistani publics reveals that half or more are open to a range of possible
outcomes for Kashmir other than it being part of their respective countries.
On neither side is there strong majority opposition to Kashmir becoming an independent country or dividing Kashmir between Pakistan and India. Indians and Pakistanis show a readiness to have the
Kashmiri people decide their own fate. If a majority of all Kashmiris were to choose independence, a majority of Indians and
Pakistanis would find such independence at least tolerable.

Ban on Muharram procession Continues
Over two decades
on since administration banned the Moharram Processions from being taken out on the centuries old traditional routes in the
City, the ban is yet to be evoked even as the authorities claim “normalcy has returned”.
And as the restrictions
to take out the processions from Guru Bazar and Abi Guzar on 8th and 10th Moharram respectively continued,
the officials remained tightlipped over the issue.
In spite of ban, as mourning processions are taken out in City Centre by JKIM to
pay homage to the martyrs of Karbala, the police and the paramilitary troopers use brutal and indiscriminate force
and fell mercilessly upon mourners to break up these peaceful marches leaving hundreds of people injured, arresting hundreds
of mourners and dragging them to police stations.
Last year JKIM moved High Court praying for objections by the state on the ban,
pleading that it was violation of international law. The organization had prayed that the ban be revoked. The state administration
is yet to file its objections before the court.
