India’s action in Kashmir aimed at eliminating a Muslim-majority state: Major US media outlet

“Without a change of course, he (Modi) is likely to fail,” the editorial said, while pointing out Kashmiri people’s grievances under the Indian rule.

“Until India finds some way to make Kashmiris feel like full citizens, in control of their lives and their destinies, their land will remain what it has been for far too long: a troubled place, and a threat to peace and prosperity,” the editorial said.
