Last week, Indian Consul General Sandeep Chakravorty spoke at a gathering of Kashmiri Pandits in New York and said that Indians should follow the “Israeli model” in Kashmir. He suggested that India should learn from the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
In this episode of Beyond The Headlines, Siddharth Varadarajan argues why the ‘Israel Model’ is not at all a model that countries, especially India, should adopt. He lists the flaws of the ‘model’ in ten points, and concludes by saying that anyone thinking of adopting such a model in India is ‘uninformed’.
