Re-invigorating the 'maloomaat' concept via SMS

In light of the greater responsiveness of SMS in formulating public opinion in AJK (Azad Jammu Kashmir - also referred to as P-A-K Pakistani-administered Kashmir or P-O-K Pakistani occupied Kashmir), I've decided to put up my SMS interaction online (though I won't be mentioning names - to protect the public's privacy).

Please also refer to my blog post 'Un-freezing public opinion in AJK' at: sahaafi.net

Question (English):
Should Kashmir become a part of the Muslim World or become an economic, cultural and neutral political nerve centre between the Islamic, Chinese and Indian World(s)?


Question (Urdu):
Kya Kashmir ko Musalman Dunya ka hissa bana chahiye ya Islami, Chini aur Hindustaani Dunya ke darmiyan iqtasaadi, tehzeebi aur thalasi markaz banna chahiye?


In light of public opinion requesting that I send the same question in each language depending on receiver's aptitude, I've decided to do just that from this point on.

"Hmmm."


"Tan, to be honest with u, I think the people of Azad are more concerned about the welfare of their children alike rather than the politics. If u gave them the opportunity of working and having a livelyhood then the question of having an "Islamic state" would not crop up. Britan is one example where everyone has equal rights regardless of differing relegous belives. Hence, kashmire should have links with both India and Pakistan. Do u think pakistan will let go of Azad after building the Dungali Pol? Or even Mangla? God knows what the Indians have done on their side."


"Kashmir become part ofthe muslim world because kashmir is a 98./.muslim state and have a great history."

"A Bird asked a Bee:

don't you feel sad? 
Bee repliedNo, b'coz they can never steal my art of making "honey"
Be like little "Bee" .. small in size but big by heart."

"Chini muslm or hindustaani muslm k sath rahna chahiye"


"China ,hind, pak ,afghan nepal k drmyan aik khud mukhtar secular state hona chahiy. jis k in sb prosi mumalik se friendly relation ship hon."


"Mere heyal mein Kashmir aur PAKISTAN dono ku na sirf Islami balke ek esa moulk hona jayeh jahan Northern, Eastern, Southern and Western influence ho. Culture and its values should remain. I'm scared of enclosed places because room for manuver is limited."
