“Modi admitted Kashmir is far from ideal relationship with rest of India”: Omar Abdullah

The former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir and Vice President of the Jammu and Kashmir National Conference, Omar Abdullah, says that statehood before elections in the region is a fight that the unionists have to wage. He speaks to Fahad Shah, the editor of The Kashmir Walla, about statehood, the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD), and how he felt quitting politics during his detention.


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
