Mir Laieeq is probably embarrassed that I seem to be running a fangirl page for him by sharing so much of his writings. Kashmir has many remarkable political writers who I learn a lot from but Mir’s polemical style has a particular force & cogency that uses few words, a lot of pungency, & deep commitment to azaadi to cut through nationalist bullshit & educate us about the character of the Kashmiri struggle. He has a gift for polemic which to my mind should be shared.
