Arundhati Roy writes ( about Afzal Guru ) : “Whatever he may be guilty of, Afzal has not been accused of being either a direct participant or a major conspirator in the 2001 attack on Parliament. Yet prominent individuals whose complicity in that crime is far more direct and more clearly established than Afzal’s remain unpunished, and indeed have yet to be brought before a court of law. A man has been hanged and maybe rightly so. The curious case of Afzal Guru, remains, in his death, more than it was in his life, a glaring issue, stirring the ‘collective consciousness’ of a people” External link

There were soldiers in the fields, deep inside orchards, on bridges and culverts, in shops and marketplaces, on rooftops, each covering the other, in a grid that stretched up into the mountains. In every part of the legendary Valley of Kashmir, whatever people might be doing – walking, praying, bathing, cracking jokes, shelling walnuts… taking a bus-ride home – they were in the rifle-sights of a soldier. And because they were in the rifle-sights of a soldier, whatever they might be doing – walking, praying, bathing, cracking jokes, shelling walnuts… taking a bus ride home – they were a legitimate target,” External link

Arundhati Roy writes ( about Afzal Guru ) : “Whatever he may be guilty of, Afzal has not been accused of being either a direct participant or a major conspirator in the 2001 attack on Parliament. Yet prominent individuals whose complicity in that crime is far more direct and more clearly established than Afzal’s remain unpunished, and indeed have yet to be brought before a court of law. A man has been hanged and maybe rightly so. The curious case of Afzal Guru, remains, in his death, more than it was in his life, a glaring issue, stirring the ‘collective consciousness’ of a people” External link

Arundhati Roy believes : “Since 1947 the Indian Government has bristled at any suggestion that the conflict in Kashmir could be resolved by international arbitration, insisting that it is an internal matter.
