Caro leitor, por favor, atualize para a versao mais recente do IE para ter uma melhor experiencia de leitura A Casa Branca encerrou uma peticao em andamento que buscava Designam o Paquistao como um estado patrocinador do terrorismo, dizendo que o faz sob suspeita de fraude. Em um blurb subtitulado, peticao fechada, a casa branca anunciou que a peticao foi arquivada porque nao se encontrou com as exigencias da assinatura. Nao pode mais ser assinado. A peticao tinha, ate 21 de outubro, para reunir 100.000 assinaturas para merecer uma resposta da Casa Branca sob as regras do programa que iniciou tais peticoes. No fechamento, a peticao tinha 625.723 assinaturas, mas a Casa Branca disse que a pagina poderia ter incluido assinaturas fraudulentas. A peticao foi hospedada em uma pagina da Casa Branca chamada We the People, que esta aberta a todos e, portanto, nao goza da seguranca que as paginas web do governo protegido fazem. Os peticionarios, na sua maioria cidadaos americanos de origem indiana, alegaram que a designacao era importante para o povo dos Estados Unidos da America, India e muitos outros paises que continuamente sao afetados pelo terrorismo patrocinado pelo Paquistao. A decisao de encerrar a peticao decepcionou enormemente a comunidade indiana nos Estados Unidos, que esperava forcar o governo dos EUA a tomar uma posicao publica contra o Paquistao sobre esta questao. As autoridades dos EUA, no entanto, tambem ficaram alarmadas porque a medida teve o potencial de colocar cidadaos de origem indiana contra aqueles que vieram do Paquistao. Na semana passada, os paquistaneses americanos tambem introduziram uma peticao "Nos os Povos", buscando declarar a India um estado terrorista por apoiar militantes no Baluchistao, Fata e Karachi. A aplicacao esta perto de atingir as 100.000 assinaturas necessarias. Funcionarios da Casa Branca, no entanto, referiu-se apenas a questoes tecnicas com algumas das assinaturas ao falar com varios meios de comunicacao sobre o motivo pelo qual eles decidiram acabar com a peticao contra o Paquistao. Uma legislacao separada, movida na Camara dos Deputados dos EUA em 20 de setembro, tambem procura designar o Paquistao como um patrocinador estadual de terroristas. Os moventes, os congressistas Ted Poe e Dana Rohrabacher, tem uma historia de patrocinar resolucoes anti-Paquistao. A maioria de suas resolucoes foram derrotadas.

Caro leitor, por favor, atualize para a versao mais recente do IE para ter uma melhor experiencia de leitura Home Mais recente PSL Popular Paquistao Hoje Livro Opiniao Mundial Esporte Negocios Revistas Cultura Blogs Tech Arquivo Multimedia Em profundidade SENIOR BJP lider e ex-ministro indiano Yashwant Sinha esta entre aqueles que Elaborou o relatorio. A India volta a concentrar-se em uma serie de pesquisas de opiniao publica, que comecam no mes que vem e, enquanto o mundo vive em suspense sobre a chegada da presidencia Trump nos Estados Unidos, o trauma das pessoas em Jammu e Caxemira continua. Um relatorio das visitas de outubro e dezembro a Jammu e Caxemira, disponibilizado a Dawn no sabado, envolve importantes individuos de diferentes instituicoes e partidos politicos, incluindo o partido Bharatiya Janata. O grupo foi facilitado pelo Centro de Rajmohan Gandhis para o Dialogo e Reconciliacao e especificamente insinuou o que esta por vir se Nova Delhi nao frear sua insensibilidade no Vale do Cachemira. Os jovens caxemiris perderam o medo das forcas indianas e estao cada vez mais ansiosos para morrer resistindo a rotina desprezivel do que submeter-se a uma vida de discriminacao e humilhacao. O relatorio apoia a retomada do dialogo entre Nova Deli e Caxemira, incluindo a Conferencia Hurriyat de Todas as Partes. Sugere sem indicar diretamente que as conversacoes entre a India eo Paquistao, embora parte de uma solucao politica, se baseiam em varias outras questoes. Isso parece apontar para o terrorismo que a India cita para as conversas de estancamento com o Paquistao. A sua maneira, no que diz respeito aos gestos humanitarios, o relatorio do grupo de cinco membros esboca alguns fatos rigidos, mesmo que nao seja capaz de oferecer um caminho claro para uma solucao politica, possivelmente porque implicaria criticas ao Modi Posicao atual dos governos em relacao ao Paquistao. Em sua descricao do estado de espirito no Vale, ha uma transparencia palpavel e alguns dos relatos de observacoes sobre as vidas humilhantes que os Caxemis levam sao inestimaveis ??como relato de testemunhas oculares. O relatorio foi elaborado pelo ex-ministro das Relacoes Exteriores, Yashwant Sinha, ex-presidente da Comissao de Minorias Nacionais, uma antiga mao de Kashmir Wajahat Habibullah, aposentado Kapil Kak, que e um Kashmiri Pandit, Bharat Bhushan (jornalista) e Sushobha Barve, executivo Diretor do programa do Centro de Dialogo e Reconciliacao. Suas conclusoes basicas sao que os caxemirenses acreditam que ha uma crise de reconhecimento do problema de Caxemira com o estado indiano. Eles sentem que a India se recusa a reconhecer que Caxemira e um problema politico e, portanto, exige uma solucao politica. Quase todos os Caxemires que o grupo reuniu disseram que havia uma necessidade de um acordo politico unico e que, a menos que a questao politica basica fosse resolvida, a morte e a destruicao continuariam a visitar o Vale com frequencia crescente. Caxemira afirmam que perderam a fe na India porque a India falhou com eles, diz o relatorio. Agora, o deficit de confianca esta se ampliando. Alguns caxemirenses acreditam que o estado indiano olha para Caxemira apenas dentro do quadro da seguranca nacional. Todos os entrevistados lembraram a proposta de Vajpayee de resolver a questao de Caxemira no ambito da humanidade como algo que oferecia um raio de esperanca. No entanto, eles nao acreditam que a presente dispensacao em Nova Deli esta interessada nessa abordagem. Listando as descobertas mais importantes de visitar as areas rurais afetadas pela militancia da Caxemira, o relatorio fala de raiva contra a India. A raiva nas areas rurais e palpably maior do que em Srinagar e crua. Um persistente senso de discriminacao contra os caxemis permeia as mentes das secoes vocais da populacao. As pessoas se opoem a linguagem usada para descrever a situacao em Kashmir agitacao dizem que e o termo errado para usar como Caxemira nunca foi em repouso desde 1947. Paz e normalidade sao as palavras mais abusadas no estado, como ninguem sabe o que eles significam para significar. E enquanto o governo fala de raiva e alienacao dos caxemires, esses nao sao os temas que precisam ser abordados, o problema e politico e clama por uma solucao politica. Ou entao, insistem os caxemiris. A maioria dos caxemira alegam que seus protestos nao sao nem patrocinados por ninguem, nem os seus jovens sao pagos para sair nas ruas. As politicas da India para lidar com explosoes esporadicas de protestos e raiva na Caxemira foram descritas como tecnicas de compra do tempo que so pioraram a situacao. Ha raiva contra Rashtriya Swaymesevak Sangh chefe Mohan Bhagwat vindo a Jammu e alegando que a India era um hindu Rashtra. Se Modi nao puder proteger ou reagir ao assassinato de Akhlaq (acusado de comer carne), um muculmano indiano, entao o que os muculmanos do Caxemira podem esperar dele, perguntou cahsmiri causticamente. Uma importante revelacao do relatorio e que ha uma crescente falta de medo nos jovens em confrontar as forcas de seguranca. Hoje, alegam os jovens, eles tomam a morte em seus passos. A melhor coisa para a qual estamos gratos e que seu uso de armas, incluindo armas de pelota, tenha matado o medo em nos. Celebramos agora o martirio, disse um jovem. Alguns dentre os jovens dizem que nao querem falar com a India - o odio contra a India cresceu. A sociedade civil indiana se lembra dos caxemires somente depois de protestos prolongados, um deles brincou. Outros disseram que aqueles de organizacoes da sociedade civil indiana que vem para a Caxemira rapidamente obter desacreditados como muitas vezes apesar de suas melhores intencoes nada bom vem de seus esforcos. Desta vez, pegamos pedras, a proxima vez em que isso pode ser muito pior, um deles disse. O vocabulario da juventude tambem mudou, assim como sua atitude psicologica em relacao a India. Eles falam de toque de recolher, hartals, martirio e Burhan (Wani). Entretanto, outros jovens dizem que, uma vez que 68% da populacao caxemira e composta por jovens, a India deve conversar com eles. No entanto, eles sugerem que antes disso, as vitimas de pellet e os jovens na cadeia devem ser liberados, ou sua raiva vai continuar a crescer, diz o relatorio.
