Militants to separatists: Don't engage in talks with GoI

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Oct 25: The separatists in Kashmir are yet to respond to talks offer by government of India, even as militants have warned the former against engaging in any kind of dialogue with New Delhi.
As the government of India has officially appointed a former Intelligence Bureau chief as the interlocutor in a bid to bring back normalcy to the violence-hit state, the separatists have not so far uttered a single word about such a serious development-neither speaking for it nor against it.
There are possibilities that the key separatist leaders including Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik may meet the interlocutor and hold talks with him. However, what could hit a roadblock for separatists is the recent statement of the United Jihad Council (UJC) an umbrella of various militant outfits based in Pakistan. Its chief Syed Salahuddin has stated that dialogue process started by India is a "big joke".
This is what could make separatists reluctant in holding dialogue, as militants have in the past acted as a spoilsport in the dialogue process and even attacked the pro-dialogue separatists including Fazl-ul-Haq Qureshi.
According to Abid Hussain, a political c0mmentator based in Kashmir, chaos has began much ahead of the dialogue process and this is not going to help in any way in the attempts to bringing back normalcy in Kashmir.
"All political parties are speaking in different voices. Some are mocking at the dialogue process while others are pessimistic about it due to the experiences of the past. As separatists aren't uttering a word over the process, it could be evident that they are willing to take part in the process," he said.
Meanwhile, on ground there are apprehensions that as militants have started opposing the process, this could make the entire exercise too cumbersome for the participants.
"Militants should not have poked their nose into it. Their opposition to the dialogue means they do not want peace in Kashmir. There has to be an end to this violence so that the state could heave a sigh of relief from decades of bloodshed, mayhem and uncertainty. If again stumbling blocks are put in the process, the situation would become more turbulent and this is what the militants based in Pakistan and listening to the diktats of Pakistani masters want," says Abdul Hamid, a local based in south Kashmir.
