Bhagat wrote in a Times of India blog calling on Kashmiri youth to change tack.

"If you are Kashmiri and care for Kashmir, the best thing you can do is to integrate with India. Your population size is small, only 7 million. It is not unthinkable to unite them and create a group of people that talks real business with the Indian government," is the dominant theme in his "open letter".

Sheikh Usman has written his open letter to Bhagat in the DailyO where he says "Thanks, but no thanks".

Tweets in response to Chetan Bhagat's letter range from praise to the other extreme and trended for many hours Monday night India time.
