Panel Discussion on Jihadi Terrorism esp in Kashmir

March 31st

this is one of the few panels on jammu and kashmir that has some balance. usually it is full of separatists and islamists and marxist fell0w-travelers (and, alas, US state department types and 'experts') all of whom have just one agenda: give all of kashmir to pakistan.

a refreshing change.

Develop Empower Synergize India (DESI) (http://www.desiumd.org), invites you
to a panel discussion titled:

TERRORISM IN KASHMIR: THREAT OF EXPANDING GLOBAL 'JIHAD' IN SOUTH ASIA

Sunday, April 10, 2005.
2:00 to 4:00 pm, 1212 Tyser Auditorium, Van Munching Hall, UMCP campus.

Since late 1989, the Indian State of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K),
bordering Pakistan and Afghanistan, has seen a resurgence of a vicious
movement of religion based terrorism. As many as 40000 lives have been
lost in this conflict over nearly 16 years of a sub-conventional war.
Among the worst victims are the Kashmiri Hindus who have now become
the targets of one of the most successful, though little known,
campaigns of ethnic cleansing of an indigenous minority.

This panel discussion will take a close look at the decade old threat
of 'Jihadi' terrorism in South Asia, of which the recent acts of
terror in other parts of the world seem like echoes. The discussion
also aims to shed light on the politics behind the prevailing
condition and try to find out the role of the international community
in solving the problem.

Panelists include:

Subodh Atal:
Foreign Policy Analyst, affiliated to The CATO Institute.

Peter Bergen:
CNN's terrorism analyst, Adjunct Professor at SAIS, Johns Hopkins University.

Husain Haqqani:
Former advisor to Pakistan Prime Ministers and Visiting Scholar,
Carnegie Peace Endowment.

Subhash Kak:
Delaune distinguished Professor at Louisiana State University.

Sanjay Tiku:
Kashmiri Hindu, University of Maryland.
