1. "I was in Kashmir last weekend. Went to visit one of my sweaters."
Author: Albert Brooks
2. "Demi kezaliman yang terjadi di Palestina, di Kashmir, di Afganistan, di Irak atau di manapun juga ... kenapa mereka rela menyengsarakan saudara-saudaranya yang sebangsa dan setanahair?Berarti ada yang salah dengan rasa kebangsaan mereka. Mereka merasa lebih dekat dengan warga asing, dengan negara asing, ketimbang dengan saudara-saudaranya sendiri, dengan bangsa dan negaranya sendiri. Bagi mereka, padang pasir dan pohon kurma menjadi lebih penting ketimbang bumi yang subur ini."
Author: Anand Krishna
3. "How carelessly imperial power vivisected ancient civilizations. Palestine and Kashmir are imperial Britain's festering,blood-drenched gifts to the modem world. Both are fault lines in the raging international con?icts of today."
Author: Arundhati Roy
4. "God, bearing the whole psycho-physical existence as reflections, is also not involved in any transformation of His essence. He remains pure Consciousness alone while appearing as infinite phenomena. The whole universe exists in the transcendental aspect of God, shining there as infinite, pure, and blissful I-Consciousness. It shines within Him as Him alone, and not as anything other than Him . . . . The Universe exists in Him as pure Consciousness alone, just as all milk products are present in milk in the form of milk alone. All that is, shines within Him as "I" alone. In Him there is no trace of "this-ness" or "that-ness". Rather, it is the outward reflections of His divine powers that appear as "this-ness".— B. N. Pandit, Specific Principles of Kashmir Shaivism (3rd ed., 2008), p. 19."
Author: Balajinnatha Pandita
5. "God, being total consciousness, is at all times both aware of Himself, and of the reflections shining within Him. Being absolutely independent and free, He is able to create infinite reflections on His own, and does not require any external agent to help manifest the reflections.— B. N. Pandit, Specific Principles of Kashmir Shaivism (3rd ed., 2008), p. 20."
Author: Balajinnatha Pandita
6. "Now is as good a time as ever to revisit the history of the Crusades, or the sorry history of partition in Kashmir, or the woes of the Chechens and Kosovars. But the bombers of Manhattan represent fascism with an Islamic face, and there's no point in any euphemism about it. What they abominate about 'the West,' to put it in a phrase, is not what Western liberals don't like and can't defend about their own system, but what they do like about it and must defend: its emancipated women, its scientific inquiry, its separation of religion from the state. Loose talk about chickens coming home to roost is the moral equivalent of the hateful garbage emitted by Falwell and Robertson, and exhibits about the same intellectual content."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
7. "I totally hate when somebody takes a classic and desecrates it. I like Jimmy Page and P. Diddy, but what they did to 'Kashmir' was a debacle."
Author: Chuck D
8. "This is the most beautiful place on earth.There are many such places. Every man, every woman, carries in heart and mind the image of the ideal place, the right place, the one true home, known or unknown, actual or visionary. A houseboat in Kashmir, a view down Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, a gray gothic farmhouse two stories high at the end of a red dog road in the Allegheny Mountains, a cabin on the shore of a blue lake in spruce and fir country, a greasy alley near the Hoboken waterfront, or even, possibly, for those of a less demanding sensibility, the world to be seen from a comfortable apartment high in the tender, velvety smog of Manhattan, Chicago, Paris, Tokyo, Rio, or Rome — there's no limit to the human capacity for the homing sentiment."
Author: Edward Abbey
9. "As a historical legacy, the Kashmir conflict has been an outstanding issue for more than half a century."
Author: Li Peng
10. "From the comfort of distance, [Non resident Indians and Kashmiris] financially and emotionally support ideologies whose consequence they don't have to face. They are not just a nuisance. As a collective they are dangerous. When men capable of murder receive the affection of engineers and MBAs, it makes them potentially far more lethal."
Author: Manu Joseph
11. "Let Jammu and Kashmir lead the way in the building of a new future for India. Let it set an example to the rest of India and the world by showing how the entire region can be transformed into a zone of peace, stability and prosperity."
Author: Pranab Mukherjee
12. "The government of India and the government of Jammu and Kashmir are determined to ensure that every Kashmiri lives with dignity having equal rights and equal opportunities."
Author: Pranab Mukherjee
13. "I am a Dalit in Khairlanji. A Pandit in the Kashmir valley. A Sikh in 1984. I am from the North East of India when I am in Munirka. I am a Muslim in Gujarat; a Christian in Kandhamal. A Bihari in Maharashtra. A Delhi-wallah in Chennai. A woman in North India. A Hindi-speaker in Assam. A Tamilian in MP. A villager in a big city. A confused man in an indifferent world. We're all minorities.We all suffer; we all face discrimination. It is only us resisting this parochialism when in the position of majoritarian power that makes us human. I hope that one day, I can just be an Indian in India - only then can I be me."
Author: Sami Ahmad Khan
14. "In one of the verses of Lal Ded, or Lalla, a fourteenth-century mystic from Kashmir, Lalla says: "At the end of a crazy-moon night the love of God rose. I said "It's me, Lalla.""It's me, Lalla," becomes "It's me…whoever you are," proclaiming that we no longer stand on the sidelines but are leaping directly into the center of our lives, our truth, our full potential. No one can take that leap for us; and no one has to. This is our journey of faith."
Author: Sharon Salzberg
15. "All these people who scream about Kashmir being an armed camp are in fact responsible for keeping it that way."
Author: Zubin Mehta

Author: Zubin Mehta
17. "I am not only a Parsi, I am a Kashmiri too."
Author: Zubin Mehta

Author: Zubin Mehta
