J&K's Stateless People
At the time of partition which was followed by tribal invasion, more than 7000 families crossed to this side of the LoC and International Border from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and the then Western Pakistan. Later on, during Indo-Pak wars of 1965 and 1971, nearly 10,000 families got dislocated from 47 villages of Chhamb area. The families who had to migrate on various occasions since 1947 continue to lack basic political rights.Read Excerpts from Parliamentary Report Here
"In truth everything and everyone
Is a shadow of the Beloved,
And our seeking is His seeking
And our words are His words...
We search for Him here and there,
while looking right at Him.
Sitting by His side, we ask:
'O Beloved, where is the Beloved?'"

Modi Praises Valley's Crusader Javed In 'Mann Ki Baat' Show
Date:30 November 2015
For the entire day on Sunday, neighbours and friends made a beeline to Javed Ahmad Tak's house in Anantnag district to congratulate him after Prime Minister Narendra Modi reiterated him on in his radio show 'Mann Ki Baat'. The Prime Minister mentioned him as an example of courage, in spite of being disabled. Javed, 42, who was paralysed after a militant attack in 1997, has been transforming lives of hundreds of differently abled children. For him, being mentioned by the PM is a 'step towards realisation of his dream'. 'It is my dream that a disable person should be known for their strengths. If this thought had touched PM's heart, it means I am a step closer towards that goal,' Javed said.
