Reservation and Merit

THE Committee for Initiative on Kashmir condemns the sudden arrest of Dr A A Guru, a leading physician of Kashmir belonging to the staff of Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences, Srinagar, who was whisked away from the Delhi international airport some days ago. We feel that this is an utterly unaccountable action on the part of the government, particularly if we remember that this same government only some months ago authorised Dr Guru to negotiate with the militants to secure the release of Rubayya Sayeed, the daughter of the union home minister, from the custody of the militants. Strangely enough, now, according to the reliable sources, we hear that the J and K government has charged Dr Guru of financing terrorists, or being involved in the kidnapping of Rubayya Sayeed, and of being a terrorist himself! Surely, the government owes an explanation to both Dr Guru and the citizens of India.
