Kashmir has never been integral part of India: Arundhati

Activist Arundhati Roy, who created a controversy the other day by questioning Jammu and Kashmir's accession to the Union, today harped on the same thing saying that the state was never an integral part of India.

Roy was speaking at a seminar on the theme 'Wither Kashmir: Freedom or enslavement' organised by Coalition of Civil Societies (CCS).

"Kashmir has never been an integral part of India. It is an a historical fact. Even the Indian government has accepted this," the Booker Prize winner said.

Arundhati Roy alleged that India became a 'colonising power' soon after its independence from British rule.
