Dear Fatima, Thank you so

Dear Fatima,
Thank you so much for providing us with an insight on the situation in Kashmir. I read your piece entitled "My life, My Kashmir" and really felt that it shed light on the many issues with which Kashmir is struggling. I have to admit that, unfortunately, I am not very well-informed on the history as well as the ongoing conflict, gender-based violence, and human rights abuse that continue toplague the country, which is why I'm so glad that there are journalists like you who have witnessed them first hand and who can provide a detailed and personal account of the situation.
Sometimes it's difficult to know what to believe after reading conflicting information in the newspapers or online.
Also, when I posted an interview about Kashmir on Facebook, which I felt was interesting and helpful in understanding the conflict, I was criticized by one of my Indian friends for having done this and was told that I should read more on the matter. While I don't want to offend anyone or to be culturally insensitive, I do believe it's important to hear different perspectives, especially coming from Kashmiris. I also want to comprehend why Indians feel very strongly about this issue and why it causes such a stir.
It would be great to get your opinion on this matter.
Thank you,
Lea
