Do you want to learn about the situation in Kashmir, a region nestled between China, Pakistan and India and controlled by India?
Then you probably don’t want to refer to the foreign policy “expertise” of the person who said “Kashmir is a very complicated place. You have the Hindus, and you have the Muslims, and I wouldn’t say they get along so great” or “We’ll see if we can do something because I’ve heard so much about Kashmir. Such a beautiful name. It’s supposed to be such a beautiful part of the world. But right now there’s just bombs all over the place. They say everywhere you go, you have bombs and it’s a terrible situation. Been going on for many years.”
Sadly, that person is currently our president.
People with ACTUAL knowledge of the situation in Kashmir will be talking at the next edition of Happy Dog Takes on the World, at the Happy Dog in Gordon Square. They include Doctor of Juridical Science candidate at the CRWU School of Law Nadia Ahmad, CWRU assistant professor of Modern South Asian History Ananya Dasgupta, and Cleveland-Marshall College of Law professor Milena Sterio.
They won’t be babbling about Kashmir’s beautiful name. Instead, they’ll be dissecting India’s recent moves in that region, which has been cut off from the world with no phones, television or internet, what India’s reasoning is behind its actions, and what the mean for the stability of the region, and the futures of both India and Kashmir. We’re also told they will be addressing “What is the United States’ role in managing and resolving this conflict?” Ha.
The program is free and open to all. Maybe they should invite the president.
