Separatism, anti-India campaigns things of past in Kashmir

Early Times Report Jammu, July 8: Separatists not issuing any strike call on July 8 in Kashmir is a clear indication that the separatism and anti- India campaigns are now a thing of past in the Valley. July 8 since 2016 used to be marked as a strike day in Kashmir as Hizbul militant Burhan Wani was killed by the security forces on this day in an encounter in south Kashmir’s Kokernag area. This year however, for the first time, no strike call was issued by any separatists, including Syed Ali Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq. Even the strike call purportedly issued by Hurriyat hawk Geelani for July 8 and 13 was termed baseless and farce by the police, declaring that Geelani’s family sources have confirmed that no such call has been given by the aged separatist.

Hurriyat dove, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq also maintained sile...
