(Editor’s note: Once again we are joined by our brother Saif Ali Budgami for a hard-hitting piece on the struggles of the youth in occupied Kashmir–struggles that not only fail to make the airwaves of the mainstream/corporate media controlled by Global Zionism, but also a large chunk of the alternative press which has failed Kashmiris at best and partaken in silencing them at worst. Our fam Saif’s essential point is that so long as the Hindutvadi regime in New Delhi denies the Kashmiri people their freedom and their independence, the resistance will simply grow stronger and continue. Beyond agreeing with him wholeheartedly, we stand in full Striking Star Solidarity. Azadi for the Vale and Azadi only. Minor corrections made for accuracy. ~ Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah)

The life of young people in Kashmir from childhood to adulthood nowadays centers around prison. The young people on this journey are meeting with probation officers, instead of teachers; they are going to court dates instead of class; they are emerging from their 20s not with degrees in business and science, but with criminal records.
In Kashmir, peaceful protestors are considered as ‘communal’ or ‘anti-national’ and are picked up by paramilitary forces on the streets, beaten and maimed. Moreover, these same paramilitary forces break into houses, shatter windowpanes, harass men and molest women without accountability from the state; it’s never taken into consideration that security means to protect civilians, not to beat or harass them.
State violence is not new. In 2008-09-10 more than 120 young people were killed after the controversial Amarnath land row, and more than 110 were killed after Burhan Wani’s martyrdom in July 2016, when marchers were fired upon by the Indian occupation army, leading to the deaths and injuries of many. Since then, this cycle of violence has been unstoppable.

(Editor’s note: A heartrending piece by our Kashmiri brother Saif Ali Budgami, who is appearing here on Mouqawamah Music again after his brilliant essay ‘When Kashmir Was Sold By The Oppressors For A Paltry Gain’ was among the week’s most viewed articles. Here, Saif documents the rise of Hindutvadi abuses against Kashmiris inside and outside the Vale and answers the question routinely asked about why Kashmiris take up arms with a simple yet even more poignant question, “How would you feel if it was you?” Powerful work which will pave the way for true understanding of Kashmiri rage and allow us to increase our Striking Star Solidarity with the people of the Valley to higher, more efficient levels.

Salaam dear readers. Don’t get frustrated. Be sure that this is actually all about Kashmir and the injustices that are all done in Kashmir. Let’s go together to see what’s happening inside Paradise Kashmir. You may not believe it, but you definitely should. Because the horrors we experience are all true. And yes! It has been happening for decades.
The journey starts as crimes against Kashmiri people outside Kashmir are rising day by day. People, who had left their homes to adjust to a so-called peaceful environment, either to make their careers or to uplift their lifestyle and earn their daily livelihood. The students who went for studies have been mercilessly thrashed and driven out of their homes, colleges and universities. The property of businessmen has been looted, destroyed and vandalized and they too have been kicked out of their homes. Nowhere, but in the world’s so-called largest democracy.

(Editor’s note: As we did two weeks ago with our brother Mohammad Umms Rafiq’s piece about Yemen through the eyes of a Kashmiri, we once again are sharing a piece from our fam in occupied Kashmir–an insightful look into a history rarely discussed but one that is as important as ANYTHING you will read on a matter that should be near and dear to all in the Ummah… As Kashmir is as precious to us any other oppressed land and then some. Almost a decade ago, Mouqawamah Music’s sister site Mask of Zion published an essay dealing with the Rothschild-financed British regime’s sale of Kashmir to the Dogra oppressors in 1846 (among other issues, including the Indian-‘Israeli’ relationship). Akhi Saif Ali Budgami goes even further and delves even deeper into this dark, UK-instigated oppression. We’re delighted and honored that he shared this with us and even more delighted and honored to publish it. Minor edits were made for accuracy. Death to the colonialist British regime. Death to Hindutvadi Indian terrorism. Long live the steadfast Kashmiri people. ~ Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah)

How Did Kashmir Become Jammu & Kashmir?
How should I start? How can I say? Whom should I say? Is anybody listening? Yes! You need to listen at least once in a lifetime. People call it by many names. Tourists call it “Paradise On Earth”; environmentalists call it “The Switzerland of India”; historians named it “Peer Vaer (The Valley of Saints)”; and many more. Though all these names suit and depict the Valley structurally and intellectually, most of its residents love to call it and depict it practically. Yes! We call it “Mazloom Kashmir (Oppressed Kashmir)”!
From 1846 to 1947, the Dogra dynasty ruled Kashmir. During this period, two main treaties took place (Treaty of Lahore and Treaty of Amritsar). These are really necessary to understand the background of the Kashmiri cause. It was 16th, March 1846, a day of complete relaxation for the British and a luxurious day for the Dogra rulers. But it is still among the darkest days and an ugly scar on the face of human race. When the British defeated Sikhs and annexed Punjab, the British sold the whole of Kashmir to Maharaja Gulab Singh of Jammu for only 75 lakhs ‘NanakShahi’ under a treaty called “The Treaty of Amritsar”. Through the Treaty of Amritsar, between the British Empire, which had stolen the Kashmiri Valley, Ladakh and Gilgit Baltistan from the earlier Sikh rule, and Gulab Singh, a Dogra from Jammu who subsequently initiated the Dogra dynasty which ruled Jammu and Kashmir as a princely state of British India for the next century until 1947.

Listen, I don’t wanna live in a world where we can’t call idol-worshipers who drink cow urine because they think it’s “holy”… Idol-worshipers who drink cow urine because they think it’s “holy”. Get me?
Why should we not be able to take the piss because such people drink the piss?
WHY SHOULD WE BE MELLOW WHEN THEY’RE THE ONES CONSUMING THE YELLOW?
Okay, that’s enough on the jocularity front, Gentiles and Gentilesses. Because this is actually quite a frightening matter. Language is an important warzone of our struggle against Dajjal and we can never, repeat, NEVER allow it to dictate the parameters of what we can and can’t say–especially when the sayings are rooted in 100% Haqq.
Punjab Information Minister Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan resigned yesterday over remarks he made at an event in Lahore last month. He called Hindus “idol-worshipers” and “cow-urine-drinking people”. This created such an uproar on social media that Imran Khan’s special assistant on political affairs, Naeem ul Haque, chastised Chohan’s comments as “insulting” and “degrading” and “nonsense” and he made it known that the PTI government will be taking action because such words just won’t be tolerated. There’s just one problem though. The man. Didn’t. Tell. A single. LIE.

Pakistan Zindabad! Death to the cow-piss-drinking terrorists of the Hindutvadi regime!
No seriously, the consumption of bovine urine in India is a massive industry, with the Modi government spending nearly 100 million dollars on industries that make “health” products from cow waste. It’s a more enormous business than selling milk. Hindu extremism at its most disgusting.
And with equal seriousness, we say that Modi the Murderer, also known as Modi the Maniac, should now be known as Modi the Misfit too. Because he launched an aggression against Pakistan in hopes of boosting his popularity in the lead-up to India’s imminent elections, but instead watched the entire Bollywood War Theater blow up in his face. His first attack on the Pakistani town of Jaba, about 100 km north of Islamabad, was said to have killed 300-400 some odd “terrorists”. Turns out no “terrorists” were hit. Nor were any actual, physical human beings. It was a glorious victory for “Akhand Bharat” [Hindutva’s faux, bigoted conceptualization of “Undivided India”] over Pakistan’s… Pine trees. And rocks. Hospital officials and Jaba residents confirmed there wasn’t a single casualty. Yeah. Militarily speaking, it gets no lamer. Pakistan’s Air Force responded proportionately with half a dozen raids on Indian military positions inside occupied Kashmir, landing precise and causing massive damage. India hit back, directly engaging Pakistan’s aces in aerial combat above the Vale’s skies–a foolish, FOOLISH maneuver. Two Hindutvadi regime warplanes were shot down and Pakistan captured a pilot following its decisive thrashing of the invaders.

Something straight out of the Twilight Zone happened last week. Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi tweeted the following at 5:23 am on September 14th, “Imam Husain (SA) sacrificed himself instead of accepting injustice. He was unwavering in his desire for peace and justice. His teachings are as relevant today as they were centuries ago.” Now… As you read that once and then read it again… Do remember that this is the same Modi who oversaw the butchery of thousands of Muslims in Gujarat; the same Modi who expanded ties with the usurping Zionist entity to unprecedented levels; the same Modi who also increased relations with the House of Saud, which is slaughtering Muslims directly in Yemen and by proxy across our region; and the same Modi who has given the green light to the wanton violence dished out against Muslims over the last several years by the Hindutvadi radicals of the BJP, VHP and RSS.

Modi the Murderer has really done it this time. He’s on a mission to get Article 35A of the Indian Constitution – which empowers Kashmir to define who is and isn’t a permanent resident and also provides special rights and privileges to those permanent residents – repealed. Of all his crimes, aggressions and acts of corruption, this very well might be the very worst of them as what will come next if the revocation goes through is a truly and immensely horrifying thought. Since the Babri Masjid was demolished by VHP, BJP and RSS fanatics with RAW and Mossad assistance on December 6th, 1992, Hindutva-pushing extremists across the Indian state have been gaining more and more influence. The kar sevaks of Hindutva have long sought to establish Hindu settlements on the banks of the Indus River and push Muslims and other non-Hindus out wherever they find them. The Hindu supremacists within the Indian Army have two strategic doctrines – Cold Start and Kurukshetra – centered around implementing ethnic-communal cleansing in Kashmir. All of Kashmir. Not just that which is Indian-occupied but Azad Kashmir in Pakistan too. And with Modi the Mongrel at the helm now, this Hindutvadi “activism” has peaked as it has taken the highest office in the land.

After 30 years of mystery, speculation, frustration, bungled prosecutions, misinformation, disinformation and outright hasbara, we now know exactly who murdered Tehrik-e-Jafaria Pakistan leader and Imam Khomeini’s (R.A.) most trusted and beloved Pakistani representative, Sheikh Arif Hussain Hussaini (R.A.): The illegitimate ‘Israeli’ regime’s Mossad and Hindutvadi India’s RAW. Mere days after Hussaini’s martyrdom on August 5th, 1988, the Pakistani Interior Ministry placed blame squarely on a “hostile foreign power”, but never identified it. Just a week and a half following the towering Muhammadi-Husseini figure’s death, officials from the Pakistan’s Justice Ministry appeared on multiple TV channels in Tehran and said Hussaini was the victim of “a plot hatched by foreign powers”. When asked who these entities were, the ministry-men vaguely said, “some forces sitting in Afghanistan”–which could mean anyone and anything.

My goodness, will you just look at Modi go! Modi the Magnificent! Modi the Marvelous! Modi the Miraculous! First Indian premier to ever travel to the usurping Zionist tumor and what a spectacle it was. Truthfully, we gotta give Modi the Maggot some major credit, huh? While every one of his predecessors has maintained military-intelligence ties with the ‘Israeli’ enemy going back over 50 years, Modi made history as he took the ‘Israeli’-Indian special relationship out into the open and made the subservience of “Hindustan” to “Tel Aviv” a matter of official policy. CAN WE GET A ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR THE BUTCHER OF GUJARAT FOR BEING THE BEST “HINDUTSTANI” SHABBOS GOY EVER?! PLEASE?!

Every so often, there is a song that comes along that transcends the boundaries of genre, culture, nationality, language and creed. It just vibrates on that frequency of justice and resonates with all people from all backgrounds who have experienced oppression in one form of another. Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On?” comes to mind, as does Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five’s “The Message”, Peter Tosh’s ” No Nuclear War”, Public Enemy’s “Fight The Power”, Michael Jackson’s “They Don’t Care About Us” and “Earth Song”, Tupac Shakur’s “Changes”, and, in this era of Zionist hegemony, my own “Death To ‘Israel'”. It’s time to add Anuragi’s “Aazadi” to the list, preferably towards the very top. This exceptionally gorgeous piece of music, from the spine-tingling sound filled with mean guitar riffs and an infectious melody to the incandescently inspiring lyrics, is nothing less than a masterpiece.
