Famous award winning writer Arundhati Roy has effectively exposed the myth of Kashmir being an integral part of India. She did not care about the anger of New Delhi, which is now taking stern action against her. Ms Roy has sacrificed her personal safety in order to speak the truth. Her latest assertion about the disputed valley is a landmark and a milestone in the struggle for independence of the occupied people of the valley. Her reputation as a fearless champion of human rights and values has been established. She can be considered as belonging to group of great individuals of the stature of Nelson Mandela and Aung San Sui Kyi etc. Meanwhile, let us hope and pray that she is not snatched away by the establishment hawks of her country.
