SRINAGAR, Jammu and Kashmir
Deprived of fundamental citizenship rights, around 350 Pakistani ladies have gone through long stretches of their lives as “stateless residents” in Indian-regulated Jammu and Kashmir.
They have been away from their families since the day they ventured foot in the now barred locale.
None of them have ever returned home, missing numerous a snapshot of bliss and being not able to comfort friends and family in the midst of despondency and distress.
That has been Nageena Kausar’s life for about 10 years now.
She was conceived in Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad, and carried on with a typical life encompassed by loved ones.
In 1995, she wedded a Kashmiri man, Mohammad Ashraf Malik. He was an activist at the time who went too far of Control (LoC) – the true fringe isolating the contested Himalayan area among Pakistan and India.
In 2011, the couple chose to move back to Indian-managed Jammu and Kashmir and has lived in Sopore, a town in Baramulla locale, from that point forward.
Their move came after the Indian government in November 2010 reported its aim to restore previous activists.
Be that as it may, as Kausar disclosed to Anadolu Agency, reality has been very unique in relation to what she and numerous others like her envisioned.
“It has been very nearly a long time since I saw my folks. We have been confined here and we don’t have the foggiest idea why. What is my deficiency or that of my folks?” said Kausar, the lone offspring of her matured and weak guardians.
Almost 10 years after it was reported, India’s aggressor restoration arrangement has left the Pakistani spouses and offspring of previous contenders needing for a spot to call home.
Taibah Ajaz is another Pakistani lady who mourns the day she came to live in Indian-regulated Jammu and Kashmir.
Brought up in the battalion town of Abbottabad in Pakistan, Ajaz is an administration postgraduate who had a settled activity and carried on with a basic existence with her folks and kin.
She wedded a previous Kashmiri activist, Ajaz Ahmad Malik, in 2002 and moved to Pattan in Indian-controlled Jammu and Kashmir in 2013.
“I revile the day I came here; no good thing has occurred in our life since we moved here. Everything is so hard for us. We don’t have legitimate Aadhar [identity] cards so even little errands, for example, getting a cell phone association are a test for us,” said Ajaz.
“Life here is an endless discipline and that’s it.”
Nabeela Javed is likewise from Abbottabad and offers Ajaz’s assessments on life under Indian control.
“Such a significant number of my nearby family members died and I was not there to comfort my family. They [Indian government] are not in any event, letting us lament for our friends and family,” she deplored in a discussion with Anadolu Agency.
“Was this recovery arrangement just turned out to rebuff us? On the off chance that we are undesirable and unlawful, they ought to expel us. Anything will be superior to this; in any event we won’t be isolated from our families,” said Nabeela Javed, who has lived in Anantnag with her better half Javed Ahmed since 2012.
