In the absence of fundamental rights, CONCERN over LGBTQ rights in Kashmir

6

By Syed Arman Kazmi

Recently, there has been a discussion on the LGBTQ+ rights in Kashmir and absence of such a discourse in the society. This may not be entirely true (given the work few people are doing, especially Sonzal Organization) but it remains a fact that the views about LGBTQ+ in Kashmir- like most parts of South Asia are regressive. Not just about LGBTQ+, discourses about women’s rights, rights of minorities are also largely far from progressive.

But why is it so and who are to be blamed for this?

A share of blame goes to us, to our traditional uncritical approach and dogmatism of different forms but a large share undoubtedly goes to the Indian oppression, that never gave us any respite from bloodshed, murders, tortures, rapes, disappearance etc. to think and deliberate about these important issues. I myself got introduced to it and got some time to think about these issues when I went out from Kashmir. This oppression has affected everyone in Kashmir despite their gender, caste , class etc. It may vary in degrees but nobody can deny it.

Indian state never gave us any respite to deliberate upon these issues, for most of our time we were picking dead bodies, protesting against the oppression, collecting the burned pieces of our houses burned by Indian Army, covering our blood filled wounds, facing tortures in prisons and documenting the oppression.

After all this we had to justify to the world and to Indians that what India is doing is “oppression”. What time and energy did India and Indians leave us, to have a better life and to deliberate on social issues?

These discourses usually develop in academic institutions, which for most part of the year remain closed here. Even forming of any oganisation which helps in mass awareness is banned in Kashmir.So, the principle reason for every form of oppression here is Indian occupation. Indigestible- it may be to many Indian but this remains a fact.

 

 

If you are just opposing one form of oppression by supporting the other and at the same time using one against the other, then it’s nothing more than a propaganda and a huge disservice to the cause.

The other slogan they are raising is that freedom movement in Kashmir is homophobic. The space where this movement is actualised is Kashmiri society. Like most societies, our society too has homophobic elements and that may also reflect in their sense of freedom as well. But , is there only one sense of freedom in Kashmir. It’s not!

Not just in Kashmir but in any struggle either in past or present, different senses of freedom are prevelant.

Take the case of Indian Independence: Gandhi had a different castiest, anti-modernity view of swaraj, Nehru had a different view, and Ambedkar different. Then with some discussion and compromise a common ground was established.

Same is in our case, we have different notions of freedom and we Kashmiri’s are hopeful that , the sense of freedom that will prevail in JK will ensure maximum freedom to all sections of our society.

Lastly, those asking for marches in Lal chowk, please first mention why at the first place are marches banned in Lal Chowk. Why are freedom marches, religious processions banned in Lal chowk by the Indian Govt?

Stop Pinkwashing Kashmir!

  1. So Qur’an is regressive according to the author! How ridiculous that this website with muslim name is promoting values completely opposite to the divine Truth-Islam. This website with muslim name is promoting Zina. HOW RIDICULOUS AND DISINGENUOUS. Man on man anal sex and women on women rubbing sex is A MAJOR SIN IN ISLAM. Time to rethink what actually this website is promoting.

  2. Garbage article written by a white washed pervert. Homosexuality has NOTHING to do with human rights. It should neither be tolerated or encouraged in any way or form. It is the ultimate form of regression. Muslim Mirror needs to remove this trash from the website.

  3. HINDOOS HAVE TO ACCEPT THE REALITY THAT RAMA WAS A GAY AND THERE IS NO SIN IN THE SAME

    THIS IS A VERSE FROM THE SUDARA KANDAM WHEREIN HANOOMAN IS DESCRIBING THE ANATOMICAL BEAUTY OF RAMA TO SEETA IN LANKA ! dindooohindoo

    HANOOMAN IS DESCRIBING “EACH ORGAN” OF RAMA,IN ITS NATURAL STATE IN MICRO DETAIL – WHICH IS POSSIBLE ONLY IF HANOOMAN SAW RAMA NAKED – MANY TIMES !

    Y DID HANOOMAN SEE RAMA NAKED SO MANY TIMES ?

    WE MUST PLACE IN CONTEXT, THAT 1 MAN FOR 12 YEARS,IN A JUNGLE,EATING ROOTS AND DEAD ANIMALS,WITH NO WOMAN, NO WIFE AND NO SEX – THERE WILL BE COMPULSIONS AND IMPERATIVES !

    ALSO WE MUST NOTE THAT WHEN HANOOMAN DESCRIBED RAMA’S INTIMATE BODY PARTS,TO SEETA – SHE SHOWED NO EMOTION OR AROUSAL ! IT IS EVIDENT THAT,BY THEN,SEETA HAD ASSSESSED THE CAPABILITY AND POTENCY OF RAMA

    ONE MUST ALSO NOTE THAT NO “NORMAL WOMAN” WOULD HAVE HER HUSBAND’S ANATOMY AND SEXUAL ANATOMY DESCRIBED IN MINUTAE IN PRIVATE,WHEN THE DESCRIPTION IS
    “NOT BY A WOMAN” ! IT REFLECTS THE SEXUAL CONDITION OF SEETA AND THE “INTENT OF HANUMAN”

    This is Hanooman describing the UNDERSIZED VIRILE MEMBRANE OF RAMA ! (Don’t ask how did Hanooman know)

    Book V : Sundara Kanda – Book Of Beauty
    Chapter [Sarga] 35
    Verse 18.

    “He has three folds in the skin of his neck and belly. He is depressed at three places (viz. the middle of his soles, the lines on his soles and the nipples).

    He is undersized at four places (viz. the neck, membran virile, the back and the shanks). He is endowed with three spirals in the hair of his head.

    IT IS EVIDENT THAT HANOOMAN,RAMA,LAKSHMANA AND SUGREEVA,WERE GAY LOVERS ! ONE MUST ALSO NOTE THAT RAMA HAD BLACK SKIN,AND HAD HANDS UPTO HIS KNEES – AND
    WAS THUS NOT SEXUALLY APPEALLING TO SEETA !

    Book VI : Yuddha Kanda – Book Of War

    Chapter [Sarga] 128

    आजानुलम्बिबाहुश्च महास्कन्धः प्रतापवान् |
    लक्ष्मणानुचरो रामः पृथिवीमन्वपालयत् || ६-१२८-९७

    That Rama, having his long arms reaching down his knees, having a broad chest and glorious, ruled this earth with Lakshmana as his companion.

    No humans has arms reaching to the knees ! IT IS EVIDENT THAT THERE CAN BE ONLY 1 REASON,Y RAMA BONDED WITH APES AND MONKEYS ! dindooohindoo

    THE TIME HAS COME FOR INDIANS TO FACE REALITY

  4. SAMPLE THE SEX DIVE OF HANUMAN THE GAY APE AND HIS EYE FOR DETAIL IN SEETA’S BODY

    THIS IS HANOOAMN DESCRIBING SEEETAS BODY

    Book V : Sundara Kanda – Book Of Beauty
    Chapter [Sarga] 15

    पूर्ण चन्द्र आननाम् सुभ्रूम् चारु वृत्त पयो धराम् || ५-१५-२८
    कुर्वन्तीम् प्रभया देवीम् सर्वा वितिमिरा दिशः |
    ताम् नील केशीम् बिम्ब ओष्ठीम् सुमध्याम् सुप्रतिष्ठिताम् || ५-१५-२९
    सीताम् पद्म पलाश अक्षीम् मन्मथस्य रतिम् यथा |

    Hanuma saw Seetha with a face like full moon, with beautiful eyebrows, with graceful rounded breasts, by the radiance making all directions without darkness, goddess like with black hair, with lips like bimba fruit, with a good waist, very firm, with eyes like lotus petals, like Rati the consort of god of love.

    HOW WOULD HANOOMAN A MONKEY CELIBATE HAVE SUCH EXQUISITE TASTE ?
