Rest of India want to see that Kashmir with Jammu and Ladakh prosper rapidly . more
The decision on the fall of the Berlin Wall was not easy and without hurdles. So is the transformation of J&K. In 1989, Industry/Finance/Banking/Tourism/Housing/Schooling etc. etc. had to be taken care of. It was not easy and economical. West Germany had to invest much much more than expected in order to bring their East German brethren up to their economic level. Sacrifices were made. The government had levied a "reunion tax" too.
It would be wise for us, who live outside of J&K, also to be prepared to make similar sacrifices in order to help the people of J&K and Ladakh to permanently and "really" integrate into India.
By the way, "banning people from activities, if these are not criminal, is not a definition of democracy !!! more
