Onus on Pakistan to restore peace in Kashmir: Bodansky – Rediff report, June 12, 2001
Som Chivukula in California For over a decade, Yossef Bodansky has been fiercely attacking Pakistan in his lectures and books, holding Islamabad responsible for escalating terror attacks in the region and for making itself a fountainhead of religious fundamentalism. He brought that message to more than 200 academics, community leaders and politicians who attended a daylong seminar in Fremont, California, recently. Organized by the Indo-American Kashmir Forum, the event was called ‘From Paradise to Ideological Battleground’. Unless Pakistan gives up its efforts to acquire Kashmir to makeup for Jinnah’s ‘lost heritage’,there will be no peace and stability in the region, Bodansky said. Getting Kashmir out of Indian hands had always meant for Pakistan a mission to achieve the unfulfilled task of Mohammed Ali Jinnah.
