Who Is Responsible for Violence in Kashmir?

The article “Fuelling the Rage in Kashmir” (EPW, 10 July) by Anuradha Bhasin Jamwal has given some hope that there are persons in the media who observe things closely. Otherwise you would only have national news channels like Times Now calling the stone pelters “rented mobs”.

Just hours after the recent all-party meeting conducted in Srinagar, 36 youth were booked under different acts; some of them under Section 307 of the CrPC (attempt to murder) and most of them under the Public Safety Act (PSA). Does it not show that the meeting was held for some other purpose?
