Jammu Mar 25 (Only Kashmir): Giving historical background of the accession of Jammu and Kashmir with the Union of India, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Monday said that those who repeatedly cram that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India (Atoot Ang) forget that the accession was only on three subjects of communication-currency, defence and foreign affairs, which was gradually eroded.
The Chief Minister said that it is also a fact that political issue of Jammu and Kashmir with internal and external dimensions exists and all the Union Governments right from 1971 either headed by BJP, Janta Dal or Congress have recognized this issue. And this does not at all constitute any challenge to the accession of the State to the Union of India. “If we talk of the necessity of resolving this political issue having Indo-Pak external dimension and internal dimension between the Union of India and the State, do we cease to be Indians? How does it amount to challenging accession”, he questioned and said that by talking about Kashmir issue is not in any way making us to cease to be citizens of India or challenging the State to be part of the Country.
            “Those who repeatedly talk about the Kashmir being integral part of Union of India are responding to whom? Has any member of the House questioned it?” he asked and said that for the resolution of political issues of Jammu and Kashmir various viewpoints and formulas have been given by different political parties which includes Autonomy Report projected and piloted by National Conference, Self-Rule proposal of PDP and Indira-Sheikh Accord of Congress. “The Kashmir issue exists and no one can deny it. It is not necessary we agree with each other’s viewpoints but at the end of the day we all want to address this political issue and resolve it amicably”, he said.
            “By repeating the word of ‘Atoot Ang’ (Integral Part) time and again, you cannot change the status of political issue of Jammu and Kashmir. To change the scenario you have to win over the hearts of people of Jammu and Kashmir. I have always said that Kashmir will be true part of India when you win over the hearts of the people and care for their hopes and aspirations. If you will reject them there will be alienation. Every Kashmiri is not Pakistani. When they get rejected they resort to raising such slogans which they do not believe by heart and they do it to give vent to their anger. (OK)

While achieving a major milestone the Pakistan National Assembly for the first time ever since its existence have completed its full term of Five Years under the stewardship of president Asif Ali Zardari. The National Assembly or lower house of Parliament completed its constitutional five-year term on Saturday and the cabinet of Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf, as required under the constitutional compulsions, was dissolved at midnight, marking the first time an elected set-up has not been removed by the military or other political forces. Prime Miniser’s farewell address that "We have strengthened the foundations of democracy to such an extent that no one will be able to harm it in future," is index of determination and will of the people of Democratic Pakistan.
Pertinently, On 7 August 2008, the Pakistan Peoples Party and the Pakistan Muslim League (N) agreed to force Musharraf to step down and thus, begin his impeachment. In the general elections held in February 2008, the party of slain leader Benazir Bhutto, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) won 123 seats in the National Assembly while the Pakistan Muslim League (N) of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif won 91 seats in the National Assembly. President Musharaf's ally party Pakistan Muslim League (Q) (PML-Q) came third with 54 seats. After the elections the People's Party Parliamentarian and the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz announced a coalition to form the new government along with the Awami National Party (ANP).
Now Pakistan is a democratic Country and the mood of democratic people cannot be challenged. However since the day, Pakistan came in to existence in 1947, efforts for establishment of Democracy in the country by sincere and good-hearted leadership became causality time and again.  Thanks to some power greedy elements who used the equal efforts to abolish democratic system in the country. Pakistan Peoples Party led government came into existence all credit goes to President Asif Ali Zardari, who made all efforts to strengthen roots of democracy in the country. The icon of Peoples Party, Benazir  Bhutto's widower  asif Ali Zardari proved surprisingly agile at survival. Three years ago, he handed over much of his power to the prime minister and in the process, robbed his critics of the accusation that he was amassing power like his predecessor. He also transferred some power from the central government to the provincial levels which perhaps have helped Pakistan to survive the Democracy.
Anyways Pakistan deserves congratulation for creating this unexpected history. Now it will be interesting to learn how much the masses of Pakistan love their country and how they will protect newly earned democracy.

Srinagar, Mar 13 (Only Kashmir): In a deadly Fidayeen attack in the outskirts of Srinagar’s Bemina area, militants shot dead five CRPF personnel and wounding seven others. Three civilians were also injured in the encounter. It is considered as the major Fidayeen attack as for the first time the security persons suffered too many casualties.
According to reports, due to strike call given by MMM, a large number of boys had assembled at Police Public School ground to play cricket. “Three boys approached towards CRPF personnel. They were all wearing kits. Our men thought that they are cricketers along with sports kit. Suddenly they opened indiscriminate firing on CRPF personnel who were sitting beside the camp. Our men exercised maximum restraint to avoid civilian causalities. Our men shot dead two militants while probably one managed to escape. Unfortunately, five of our jawans were killed in the attack while seven including three civilians were injured,” Inspector General CRPF, V.S Yadav told CNS.
CRPF, Police and Special Operation Group personnel cordoned the area to flush out the militants. However, the militants continuously fired upon the troopers and in the ensuing battle, both of the militants were shot dead by the troopers whose identity was not immediately confirmed. “Both the militants seem to be teenagers and at this point of time we could not ascertain their identity,” a police official said.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah describing the assault as a "suicide attack", said three civilians were also wounded. “Militants attacked a CRPF camp in Bemina area in which five of our security personnel have died while two militants have also been killed in the attack,” Omar Abdullah informed the members in the House in Jammu soon after the attack.
Hizb-ul-Mujahideen Claims the responsibility of Bemina Encounter, in which Seven people were killed including Five CRPF Men anf Two Fidayeen. Meanwhile Hizb threatened for more attacks near in future. 
Hours after the encounter ends, a father of three daughters was killed in Zoonimar area of Srinagar on Wednesday when CRPF fired upon him from a close range. Inspector General CRPF, V.S Yadav said that our men were on way to SKIMS to donate blood to their colleagues who had been critically injured in Bemina shoot out. “As the party reached at Saidapora, people surrounded it and pelted stones on the men. To save themselves from the wrath of the people, our men were compelled to resort to firing,” he said.
The locals said that youth were playing cricket on the road when a CRPF party in three vehicles came rushing and without any reason fired on youth.
The state Government led by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah in a statement to Only Kashmir has taken a strong note of the incident at Zoonimar in which a civilian Altaf Ahmad Wani was killed.

The Jammu & Kashmir Young Journalists Association (JKYJA) was exactly formed out one year ago on March 5, 2012 under the dynamic leadership of Editor-in-chief Kashmir Media Watch Ajaz Ahmad War (President, JKYJA), to raise the problems confronted by media especially the young journalists of the state.
In its first year JYYJA has forcefully championed the cause of journalists and in this relation held important events, fruitful dialogue with authorities, civil society and eminent delegations.
The  JKYJA has made all out efforts to meet its basic objective to address the problems faced by the media fraternity especially the young media professionals who usually face tough times at the start of their career. In its one year journey, several members belonging to different prestigious media outlets have joined the organization and the main view expressed during the journey  has been that JKYJA  would toil for the healthy development of the journalists (belonging to any stream of journalism including photo/video journalism and freelancing) especially the young ones so as to provide them an ample space and scaffold to explore and hone up their skills as better journalists and consequently help towards maintaining the dignity of the fourth (4th) pillar of democracy
The JKYJA has also marked with great enthusiasm the important celebrations related to Media as was evident from observing with great zeal the world Press freedom Day in 2012. On the eve of world press day 2012, Jammu& Kashmir Young Journalists Association (JKYJA) held important events .
The JKYJA has also been forceful in putting up its concerns towards the fact that lack of freedom of expression is marring the functioning of media in our part of the world. JKYJA has maintained “Media” has key role to play in the overall functioning of a democratic system, but the manner in which freedom of press has been scuttled in the state over the past few decades is a cause of concern.
Via its ground work over the past one year different social and civil society sane voices have praised JKYJA. We hope to carry the same positivity in our second year as well and usher a new dawn for the betterment of journalism in our part of the world. (OK)
