“For New Delhi, the US designation is strategic and political. While Pakistan has been pushing hard to project ‘Indian atrocities’ in the Kashmir Valley, the latest designation of the Hizbul, and the earlier US declaration of Syed Salahuddin as a global terrorist (during Modi’s visit to the US) makes a political point at global level. It shows where the White House stands on the ongoing unrest in J&K; clearly, the Trump administration stands with New Delhi”. This extract from The Indian Express rightly explains the mishandling of Indian occupied Kashmir by the Trump administration. The Times of India has explicitly expressed its utter misconception and has mentioned delightedly that a day after US president Donald Trump called Modi to greet him on India’s Independence Day, the US designated Pakistan-based Hizbul Mujahideen, responsible for terrorist attacks in J&K for the last three decades, as a “foreign terrorist organisation. Trump administration is surely turning its head from the viciousness of the Indian forces on the poor civilians of the IHK. Indian media has been hallucinated because of Trump’s weird policies. They are assuming this as the positive move for the strategic relations between the two countries and are expecting US to side India in its conflict of Sino-Indian Border. But the entire world is not as hallucinated as India. Aljazeera has called Hizbul Mujahideenas the largest group fighting against Indian rule. Kashmir has been echoing its plea to the world since 1947. According to one estimate nearly 70,000 people have been killed in the uprising and the ensuing Indian military crackdown. It was back in 1989 when Hizbul Mujahideen came into being. The recent outbreak came in July 2016, with the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen leader Burwan Wani sparked months of anti-India protests. Apathy of Trump administration probably wants the Kashmiris to surrender to the wicked Indian forces. By imposing sanctions like freezing of its assets, the world power has proved that it merely wants to divert the attention of the world from the inhumane acts of the Indian forces. This act that is nothing but ignorance at part of Trump administration speaks loudly of the flaunt policies. An urgent diplomatic outreach to the US must be attempted so as to get rid of this apathy depicted by the Trump administration.
