What will you choose: IAS or Azadi?

  • 7

By Wasim Dar

The selection of a few more Kashmiris in the Indian Administrative Services (IAS) for the consecutive eighth year has triggered a debate in Kashmir. It is about whether Kashmiris, who are stuck in an interminable conflict since the past 60 years, should join or celebrate the Indian “civil services” or not?
The side that supports the celebration puts forward the point that it will strengthen Kashmiris in the bureaucracy which would dramatically turn the equation of power on their side. By having greater say, they would influence policies and plans. The opposite view is that by entering the Indian bureaucracy, Kashmiris would end up as “mini-screwdrivers” who would only perpetuate violence against their own people. By acting as tools of the Indian power structure, these “civil servants” would strengthen India in Kashmir.
The debate whether to join the IAS or not was triggered largely after an article titled “IAS in Kashmir: Glorifying the occupation” was published in the daily newspaper Kashmir Reader. The article took the social media by storm where people expressed their views about the “civil services”.
As the debate was on, another write-up appeared in The Indian Express titled “Till Azadi comes”. The essay was written by the IAS poster boy in Kashmir, Dr Shah Faesal, who had topped civil services exam in 2009. It came as a shock to me. The article was primarily arguing that Kashmiris should go for a political compromise as Azadi was a far-fetched dream. It suggested that there is hopelessness as far as Azadi is concerned and hence it will be better for Kashmiris to surrender and join the Indian mainstream.
How can people join the state which has been shedding their blood and heaping on them indignity? The state that led an all-out war against Kashmiris by blasting their houses, killing men and women, subjecting thousands of people to enforced disappearances, and inflicting countless miseries upon Kashmirs. How can one describe the crimes of genocidal nature on part of the Indian state as just “disturbance”? By doing so, you are not only trivialising the struggle, but also taking sides with the occupier.
Doctors and Engineers have rendered countless sacrifices for the Kashmir cause. Their resolve to gain freedom has led them to resist oppression at every step. At times it has cost them their lives. Turn back the pages of history and see how many “civil servants” have raised their voice against the oppression by the state. If being an IAS officer means resistance, Dr Shah Faesal, why didn’t you write against the oppression of the Handwara girl? What was her crime? Wasn’t it your moral obligation to speak up for her when she was going through trauma? We have enough of resources and talent to deal with unemployment, if we are allowed to utilise them. A few IAS seats are not a solution to unemployment. Even if India gives us 100% of the civil services seats, it will fall short of 1% of our educated youth.
Between 1990 and 2008, ten times more youth were employed by the Gulf countries then by the Government of India. When it comes to choice of one’s career, compromises should not be made, and ethics, principles and bonds with one’s fellow people should never be cast away. The choice of a civil services career is a personal one and should not be played up as an alternative to the political aspirations of the citizens of Jammu and Kashmir.
The upward mobility of a few families of civil servants hardly helps the poor on the streets or the half-widows longing for their husbands. No one in Kashmir opposes students getting admissions in IITs, IIMs, and excelling in cricket, but the civil services, the armed forces, and the police are state machinery that supervises in Kashmir mass murders, rapes, abductions, torture, and much else. Let us learn to call a spade a spade. No cause is more critical than the Kashmiri struggle for dignity. Every family in Kashmir has suffered, whether rich or poor. IAS aspirants can never be called Kashmiri heroes as they are bound by the Indian state and India and Kashmir are like parallel lines that will never meet. There is no confusion in history as to where India ends and Kashmir begins. So does everyone in Kashmir and in India.
Everyone has his own battles to fight but no battle is bigger than the collective one. The Kashmiri struggle is definitely about politics, war, traditions and culture. It is about a dignified life in which your children are not killed, mothers and sisters are not molested, heritage and demography are not changed. It is about eradicating corruption and inequality. It is about telling the truth in whole and not in parts. It is about allowing people to nurture their apple orchards, to be upright and active for their rights and against oppression. The IAS gives us none of these, and so it is nothing to celebrate in Kashmir.
Rebellion or militancy is not a career; it is a passion, an ultimate sacrifice, which is far above a worldly career. It is the ultimate commitment to the nation when a human opts for death so that his fellows can live. These martyrs never die, they live in our hearts till eternity. We don’t need memorials to them because they live in our breath. No one has ever stopped living in Kashmir, not the mother who lost her four sons in the fight against Indian occupation, nor the people in the village where every woman was raped in a single night. The only difference is that what they call life is not what you and I call life.
The dawn of Azadi is bound to come. I leave you with just one question: Will you be left with enough spirit to dance on the day?

    Hats off dear Bro. This is a befitting reply for those who have common sense which unfortunately doesn’t exist commonly.

  3. rahat wani   June 9, 2016 at 9:09 am

    Yes i will choose azadi not ias because we want to breathe in free space which is occupied by india

  4. sadaf wani   June 9, 2016 at 10:55 am

    I don’t think Indian civil services is a bad option, even if you are fighting for Kashmir. Joining the administration of ruling state can instead prove helpful.
    Moreover we need to be clear first,
    what we mean by “azadi” a completely separate country or just self governance & expel of excess army. Cause lets face it,
    the former is not gonna happen.

  5. younis   June 9, 2016 at 12:01 pm

    I appreciate your words dear brother .our ultimate purpose is azadi from Indian occuption.few kashmris getting selected for I A S will not help to those who have sufferd by the hands of Indian occuption here

    What is Azadi? Is azadi such a simple term?
    Whose idea of Azaadi are u talking about? Geelani’s? Yasin Malik’s? Burhan’s? Mododi’s? An educated Kashmiri’s? A government servant’s? A vendor’s? An unemployed youth? A facebooker? A policeman’s? Azadi is different for all of them. How can you asure that Azadi won’t lead to a civil war in Kashmir? Your brothers are fighting for 8 or 20 raka’ts in Taraweeh these days! We need to grow up to even comprehend the complexity of this word.

      If questions like urs had been posed to indian national congress leaders like ghandi and nehru india would not have been independent today….. if same questions were posed to jinnah and his muslim League pakistan would not have existed… so Azadi means only Azadi but it seems that u want to complicate a simple question by ur lame arguments…… wuh kashmiri kahawat hay na ki cxche mali che musalmaan bannus gariz

    These are two different things We should be proud of kashmiris who topped in administrative services Azadi and qualifying IAS are two different things At least they are better than those people who work and live outside kashmir where they enjoy life and give sermons of Azadi to us These young IAS boys will at least serve our community

    Even if you don’t have enough ‘spirit’ to ‘dance on the day’ (dawn of azadi etc), what is the problem? Just have one MORE peg or so (of whatever ‘spirit’) — and being in the Civil Services, there is plenty of FREE access to the same! That should be the real ‘spirit’ — hence why more and more educated Kashmiris are aspiring for the same.

  18. Vinay   July 4, 2016 at 1:27 am

    What you mean by Azadi? Free killing of innocents in the name of blasphemy? Do you hypocrites have any shame in telling yourself victims. Your religion is the sole problem of this planet. Soon or later your religion will be finished. Either good people will leave this shity religion like apj abdul kalam. Or good people will root out this religion.
    You assholes read 1 book full of shit and think yourself genius of everything while a common guy read 100s of book yet he doesn’t consider him perfect and always ready to accept new ideas.
    Future is very clear, the more people understand the more fake they will found god. God rules on fear and darkness. God didn’t created us. Human created God for their benefits.

      Dear Friend
      It appears that you so angry with few people who might have caused you trouble in your life. Believe me, the whole of India is not like that. Further, You have to understand with the pages of history that the configuration of national boundaries have changed many a times. If you consider the time before 1947, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh etc were one land hosting common people who are in the state of animosity these days. So, I would like to pose a question to you whether our forefathers were incorrect while living in Harmony? As for as Azadi is concerned, it should be struggle against atrocity which needed to be corrected with suitable way. Otherwise there would be a sub-Azadi voice from Jammu and Ldakh region which is always undermined while making any reference of Jammu & Kashmir. Further, you have to understand that, the idea of asking for a break up of India is not a tenable option like in cases of Nababs of Hyderabad, Junagarh in India who tried to establish divisions in the name of religion. We respect the territorial integrity of Nations and expect the same from people. If you have some grievances, you can join the Government and rectify it. India is a free and united country where every one has one’s own dreams realized. I just appeal to you that please do not link any case of atrocity with the act of this great nation. We are with you while fixing such incidents with full force. Thanks

    IAS means Indian Administrative Service. Service means job. If someone does a job, he or she does it for living. Now ask a westerner : whose job is important: a carpenter’s or IAS officers? Do I need to tell you the whole story?

    Well said bro..really a master piece .rightly said wasn’t it moral duty of Shah to write about te girl from his home town..Azadi must b the ultimate goal of every Kashmiri. being in India administration means you are responsible for all those killings which Kashmir has seen from years..some will say IST you must qualify IAS then talk I must tell them I have seen some of the IAS officer’s whose IQ is Zero infront of majority of kashmiris.

  25. Vikas Beghra   July 21, 2016 at 2:55 pm

    I would simply urge those Kashmiris here gunning for Azadi to learn from history and think about their future with a calm mind. No country that gets freedom by the barrel of the gun can build what we call as a civil society. You don’t have to look far for examples. While it is worthwhile to seek freedom, though the term is an oxymoron in the Indian context as it is a democracy, nevertheless, there is a crying need to reject violent means towards that aim. Kashmir is not big enough, rich enough and influential enough to stand on its two feet. Violence of any kind esp. the Jihadi variety makes global powers cringe. It must also be noted that resorting to violence is an admission of ones inability to convey demands through dialogue or discussion – which will be seen as a serious handicap, inadvertantly clubbing Kashmir with the likes of Syria and Iraq. Kashmir can very well be free within India, but for that to happen the cycle of violence must come to an end.

  26. sib ishfaq   July 21, 2016 at 11:26 pm

    Power corrupts man but when stupid people get into a position of power,corrupt power.The very notion by the so called civil servants from kashmir that our future is secure and have scope with the so called Mighty India proves to be parochial as far as the “Aazaadi barai Islam” is concerned. How can this notion be justified with India as it is the same very india which has transgressed all limits of inhuman,murderous acts in kashmir. They have gone completely blind-folded with the charisma of position and power in it.Being kashmiri, if one cannot support the justified ongoing freedom struggle,do not at least oppose with your specious ideas. In the words of Iqbal, ehsaas-i-ziyaan b jaata raha….

  27. INDRA   July 25, 2016 at 4:34 pm

    Dear Kashmiris no AZADI is required for KASHMIR because you living with azadi itself. Just look at PAK occupied Kashmir .There your brothers wants to join with India. If U join with PAK your condition will become more worst. PAK is epicenter of terrorism in world. EVEN PAK killing militants of its own soil. Militants demanding AZADI. Balochistan people agitating for AZADI. See the condition of PAK citizens now , everyday killings ,bomb blast . If you still wants PAK even god could not save you .

      referendum is meaningless ,only valley want Azadi which is just 10% of J&K state.. at the most you will get is what Manipur and Mizoram got , something less than Autonomy.be practical and don’t ruin your and your future generations future. Pakistan is not Switzerland , its a broke country full of low IQ dumb people , its debt to GDP ratio is 75% meaning every Rs. Pakistan add to its economy , 75 paisa goes towards paying interest on its external debt.. what can such a country offer you. Just wait Pakhtun and Balochs both will get out of Pakistan, its not worth it and idea of Absolute Freedom don’t exists anymore and India can’t afford one more Afghanistan at its border where terrorists and ISIS will finally rule and become security issue for entire India.

    • Manoj Sharma   August 12, 2016 at 6:31 am

      I met plenty of Punjabi Muslims from Pakistan in US and they are desperate , some of them even abused Jinnah for dividing Punjab , some even asked me to request Indian Government to allow them to work in India. Grass only look greener on the other side , use commonsense ,don’t be dumb. In Modern world nobody gets absolute Freedom , is Pakistan Free? IMF forces it to make policies , US openly hits them with drones and decides policy issues and Now China .. in next 10 years PK will become absolute dependent on China !

  29. Kumar   July 26, 2016 at 4:22 am

    People who write articles like this ,first of all, do not have the intellectual capability to qualify for indian civil services. The writer of the article seems like an unemployed lout who has an air of entitlement or privilege as though india owes civil service seats or that india would be highly honored if scum like him join civil service.
    Shah faesal has not done india a favor. India has not done shah faesal a favor. shah faesal cleared a very tough exam which the readers of this website are not capable, especially an idiot like this article author.
    Shah faesal is duty bound to do his job and do it well to further his career and life.
    Most of the azadi mongers are mentally disturbed and have no competence to clear any tough exam. their best best is jihad and if they die at least some relative may benefit by hurriyat sponsoring them for a medical or engineering seat in some college in pakistan.

    Which azadi? seek azadi from venom spewing mullahs and wahabi jehadi self styled soldiers of god. Independence is not option in UN resolution – even if there is refrendum, u either join pakistan or stay wid india. Plz understand J&K is not just few districts of Valley – few brainwashed fools cannot impose their choice on Ppl of ladakh n jammu. Anyway fate of J& K cannot be decided by few paid stooges of pakis n driven by excluvist wshabi islamist ideology. Kashmir has been land of hindus centuries bfore ppl welcomed sufi form of islam. the land cannot be hijacked by later date extremist wahabis n pak agents. India army is there to protect civil kashmiris from paki n chinese invaders waiting to grab, loot n rape. dont forget what they did to kashmir since 1948. In india, azadi means individual liberties which neither wahabi mullahs not paki agents nor chinese communists will allow u, ur children or ur women. Only n best choice – be part of a secular, liberal, progressive india and participate in its progress for everyones benefit n dignity

    Very logical explanation and in fact those of the readers whose comments here denounce this article, are those who infact have been always ‘riding the fence”.
    The new strategy that central government has started is going to churn more clerical staff and less technocrats in our state and in the near future as all of us will see, our professional institutions will be populated by more non-state subjects and less locals (as has happened with NITE).
    And if those of you who think that prior to the present area, nobody could qualify civil services exams, well they are naive.

    There is a write up in Pol Science book which every Civil Services Aspirant has to read :
    Q: How does centre ( India ) controls the states (Kasmir )?
    A:India cntrols the states through 2 means,
    1. Governor
    2.Through the officers of All India Services i.e, IAS, IFS, IPS, IRS etc.

    This is for the kind information of the person who wrote the article, do not indulge in the act where a person is getting off his bread, butter and silver spoon.

    One interesting point to note is that Kashmiri Muslims alway talk about excesses of Indian Army since 1990 but they never talk about looting, rape and killing of Kashmiri Hindus by them, they conveniently forget it. In essence, Kashmiri Muslisms say that only they are humans and only they have right to self determination, whereas Kashmiri Pandits were lambs and it was just fine to slaughter them and drive them off.

  41. Fazl   August 20, 2016 at 12:58 pm

    Who told you that Kashmiris are making a mark in IIMs and AIIMS and IITs. They are not. Its only IAS that Kashmiris are making headlines. Or should I say , ‘ allowed to make headlines’ . You cant have a sudden IAS topper after a draught of IAS for 60 years, unless there is a mass uprising on the lines of 2008 and Indian think tanks advise the government to bring Kashmiri youth into mainstream for the purposes of integration….
    Common, its takes a year and more to get a f***ng passport for a Kashmiri…. I find it hard to believe that Kashmiri IASs are a fair selection, especially the IASs selected after 2008 revolt. But, yeah, I dont deny that all Kashmiris who qualified IAS till date were selected unfairly… Its the sidden success in 2009 and the publicity given to it that I cant gulp down, if I ever need to.

    Peace, peace and peace. Ultimately peace prevails. We will have to fight with three after ” azaadi” like Pak , India and China. And more fight within ourselves. There is no legitimate and competent leadership anywhere for us or for others. We are borne peaceful. Let us talk peace and ask for our rights and live as a dignified society . So much on Shah. It is enough. It is not relevant at all. He worked hard . We are jealous so to say.He is a genius and can help us groom up and live peacefully.

    Kashmiris need to see what is happening in azad Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq , Sudan and other muslim dominated Azad countries. Even in you neighborhood just look at Baluchistan, Sindh and Gilgit Baltistan ! what is happening there?
    Have some sense and be one with India from your heart and mind if you want to see a prosper and peaceful Kashmir!

    I will rather prefer AZADI than becoming an indian stooge. People are free to join IAS but they should stop advising people about the freedom struggle. it is a well known fact that 100% Kashmiris want freedom from the clutches of indian imperialism. We will be seeing the DAWN OF FREEDOM soon. GO INDIA GO BACK

    So called hurriyat leaders getting kids brainwashed in the name of a zadi and getting them killed while their own kids study in India…. Shame

    Sooner Kashmiris realize that no azadi possible from emerging super power… Better it is

    I think u don’t read news paper …..read news paper and watch news channels then u will see what India is doing with Kashmiris….more than 40 were killed by Indian forced during first week of AZADI movement…and India there is also unrest all over country….Punjab also wants freedom….

    Those choosing Azadi will have only one way of achieving it! Migrate to POK which has been created by the Pakistanis to fool Kashmiris as their abode of freedom – a free country with a Prime Minister who reports to the Chief Secretary of Islamabad.
    Very few will be able to choose IAS since that requires intellect and hard work.

    First I appreciate the writer the way he has composed the brutality done by Indian on our people it also reminds me revolt of 1857 so called then educated people who were thinking that Britishers are there well wishiers so they were against those who were fighting against British armies same is happing here these stupid so called well wishiers of India thinks that Indian IAS jobs are better because its good to them but I don’t understand one thing if such things would have haapen to their families would they remain their well wishiers.
    I’m with my fellow people and our freedom is our birth right and we will achieve it insha Allah no matter weather these so called well wishers of India are with us not I also feel about them because they remain their feet lickers as our ministers are……

    Azadi from this is what you should first aim for…Respect your women….Rest will follow only then….

    A humble reply to all Kashmiris….. Guys where was this AZADI word before 1989 or 91… It started because of you causing problems for yourself…. AZADI…. Lol….. Guys getting educated and becoming what you want is called AZADI for a citizen of any country. . You guys don’t let your people come and study in Delhi, Mumbai because you belive than they will see the real life…. Guys come on how can you be azad… Would not Pakistan occupy you… And than they would call you kafir like that happens even now…. You don’t have a port so you need connectivity, whole Pakistan is already sold to China on the basis of developments…. Your AZADI would become your cancer… Ask any, by any I mean any economist who says AZADI is a solution for you and India is wrong for you…. Your problem is 370, you guys need to shout remove 370 in hardly couple of years you and your Kashmir would turn out to be a heaven… I have lot of Kashmiri friend here in Delhi and London and when we sit and talk we all stuck on one thing even after AZADI how Kashmir would survive…… I have not been able to find answer… Kindly put an answer with morality and practicality…. Would like to listen and if found correct would put it on my Facebook wall as well….waiting guys for your reply…

    Most of the Kashmiri ‘youths’ are showing they are idiots of highest grade. When the world is becoming a global village these mouse-mideded idiots are following a senile degenerated lunatic’s dream of Azadi. Azadi is ‘ nowhere’ its in your minds…. cannot you idiots see what porky’s , Afghani’s doing with their Azadi… have some common sense … before you become a radical islamic tribal society from a civilised sufi islamic society…
    India will loose nothing by loosing Kashmir… it has lost Punjab, bengal .. it can afford to loose Kashmir.. but you will be Rat trapped by fundamentalists jihadi porkys… nowhere to go… you even don’t have sea to drown…
    They will change your “NASAL’

    When kashmiris claim about being oppressed they always forget to mention what led to afspa , it’s your lunatic parents,who put you in this situation, their adventures with riots and goonism led you here.state has responsibility to handle the situation, so don’t blame state..Blame your parents.
