Arundhati Roy speech on 'Whither Kashmir? Freedom or Enslavement' irks controversy

A speech delivered by Booker Prize winner Arundhati Roy at a seminar in Srinagar has got into controversy.

The speech was made during the seminar on 'Whither Kashmir? Freedom or Enslavement', was organized by Jammu and Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society.

During the speech Arundhati Roy had said that Kashmir was never an integral part of India and that British imperialism had been replaced by Indian colonialism in 1947.

Kashmir has never been an integral part of India. It is an historical fact. Even the Indian Government has accepted this. New Delhi became colonizing power soon after its independence from British rule.

The J&K police is probing the incident and may take action against the writer.
