A few days ago, the terrifying video clip of a youth tied to the front of an army jeep once again brought to fore the path being followed by the government in Kashmir. Only barbaric armies totally alienated from the people can stoop to using hapless humans as shields – that too when they are armed to the teeth and their adversaries are supposedly citizens of their own country. There have been protests from all quarters about this barbarity and utterly inhuman treatment.

Despite being in the ranking of ‘world’s largest’, democracy in India, unfortunately, has not brought uniformly distributed feeling of democratic independence, in all regions of present Indian territory. It is the same country where , it seems that state failed itself on the scale of democratic values, when it comes on ‘special states’ of ‘North East Region in India’ and of ‘Jammu and Kashmir’. These states are under continuous monitoring and filled with heavy deployment of armed forces and facing a kind of ‘military rule’ where no one can complaint against soldiers, despite the acts of ‘murders, rapes and other kind of such crimes’ committed by them. It seems that a democratic state surrenders itself even in vocabulary, where it sees ‘crimes’ as acts done by civil population, while it does not categories acts of ‘killings’, ‘rapes’ ‘torture’ etc under ‘crimes’, if it is being done by state functionaries like armed forces.
