AG Noorani in Lend them your ear (November 8) is giving the militants undue importance in working towards a Kashmir solution.

AG Noorani in Lend them your ear (November 8) is giving the militants undue importance in working towards a Kashmir solution. Most Kashmiris are fed up with the militants. The strength of the Hizbul Mujahideen which Noorani is trying to highlight is far less than that of the traders who illegally occupy premises in Delhi.

Though AG Noorani criticises the behaviour of Indian officials in the peace meetings with Kashmiri militants, led by Syed Salahuddin, he finds no insincerity in the Hizb leaders’ talk, who are hired, trained and armed by Pakistan to wage war against India. Why would India want to talk with the same  elements who, in the name of Kashmir, want to cause jehadi mayhem here?

Seal and relocate

Apropos of the editorial Sealing fates? (November 8), the Supreme Court must take a humanitarian view to resolve the issue. The DDA should release part of its land to relocate the traders. Besides, corrupt officials must be given stringent punishments.

The state government must give alternative sites to all those whose commercial establishments are being sealed. The government collected tax for these sites and also charged the shopkeepers for electricity. Also, why are only the traders being penalised?

Unsporting behaviour

With reference to the editorial Judgment from the kangaroo court (November 8), the Australian cricket team’s behaviour can’t be taken lightly. Ricky Ponting and his team-mates are expected to adhere to some decorum. The thrill of a win does not exempt them from behaving properly.
