Kashmir Nexus of Media & Violence: Interview with Madhu Kishwar


Madhu Kishwar, a prominent public intellectual and a dear friend of mine for many years, was recently given a non-bailable arrest warrant by a Kashmir court.

Her alleged crime was that she exposed a journalist who is well-positioned in the power nexus of Kashmir, by arguing that he is aligned with separatists, and yet he receives money from the J&K state government and Indian government.

She has been charged with criminal defamation.

This live episode of my investigative reports discusses:

  • The nexus among media in Kashmir, government patronage and militants.
  • Pakistani link in Kashmir violence.
  • Ethnic cleansing of Hindus in Kashmir.
  • The silence of Indian and global mainstream media in exposing the deep Hinduphobia.

This episode of my show is pressuring mainstream media to pay attention & cover the facts.

  1. Gordon, your friend Madhu fails to mention that India had pledged to hold a plebiscite in Kashmir back in 1948. Which they have not delivered on as yet. What also deserves mention is that the Partition agreement recognized Pakistan as the caretaker of the rights of India’s Muslims. Another fact conveniently swept aside by India media. Pakistan has not done enough in that regards, since by that agreement, they retain the right to intervene after every Pogrom (whitewashed as communal riots claimed by Dalitistan websites) against the Muslims.
    Nor does Madhu mention that Indian security forces are trained by Israelis who have operatives in Kashmir. After the atrocities (Kashmiri teen-age girls are routinely gang-raped raped by Indian forces to humiliate and subjugate) endured by Kashmiris, backlash is inevitable. Particularly on collaborators, facilitators and informants. Some people, Hindu Pandits and Moslems alike, have been retaliated against. Moreover, Pandits from Jammu have been grabbing land which they claim as historically theirs (like the JKM in Palestine), with the help of the Indian security and armed forces. Naturally they will be chased out, when the situation presents itself.

  2. It is good that you are supporting your friend but I can see that most of the media is not covering Kashmir as you say “cover the facts’ But does any one have a proof of any one getting money from any government agency ?
    Since you have been sending people to all conflict zones to know the facts , would you also send a fact finding mission to Kashmir and let the world know what is happening there.
