India became colonising power after '47: Arundhati

Arundhati Roy
Srinagar, Oct 25: Speaking at a conference on Jammu Kashmir issue, Booker Prize winner and well-known activists, Arundhati Roy on Oct 24 claimed that soon after independence in 1947, India became "colonising power."

Rejecting Kashmir's integrity with India, Roy also claimed, "Kashmir has never been an integral part of India. It is a historical fact. Even the Indian government has accepted this."

Roy spoke in the "Wither Kashmir: Freedom or enslavement" seminar organised by the Coalition of Civil Societies (CCS) in Srinagar on Sunday, Oct 24.

Arundhati also supported Hurriyat leader, Syed Ali Shah Geelani on his pro-azadi remark on Kashmir during a meeting in New Delhi on Oct 21.
