The once beautiful state that derives its name from Maharishi Kashyap, one of the greatest saints of Hinduism, Kashmir today has been reduced to penury. Inhabited by violent, murderous, jihadist bigots, Kashmir today is nothing like the heaven on earth professed by people from around the globe once upon a time. Turn on the TV today, and you see perpetually angry 'Kashmiri' youth, accessorized with Palestinian scarves, pelting stones, carrying guns, protesting, burning flags, and often - killing people. This, unfortunately, is what Kashmir has become today.
And, more scarily for most of us, what India will become if the current 'government' has its way.
