Kashmir, Never Been Integral Part Of India: Arundhati Roy

Activist Arundhati Roy, who created a controversy the other day by questioning Jammu and Kashmir’s accession to the Union, on Sunday harped on the same thing saying that the state was never an integral part of India.

Kashmir has never been integral part of India: Arundhati RoyRoy was speaking at a seminar on the theme ‘Wither Kashmir: Freedom or enslavement’ organised by Coalition of Civil Societies (CCS).

“Kashmir has never been an integral part of India. It is an historical fact. Even the Indian Government has accepted this,” the Booker Prize winner said.

Roy alleged that India became “colonizing power” soon after its independence from British rule.

Arundhati Roy shared the stage with Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani at the convention on ‘Azadi–The Only Way’, among others in Delhi on Thursday.
