Early Times Report
Jammu, May 15: The Kashmir-centric political groups have again boosted the morale of separatist leaders by asking them to become part of the all-party delegation intending to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi to pitch for ceasefire in Ramadan.
There are reports coming to fore about how the separatists are now feeling rejuvenated and relevant again as the ruling political party made it so. In the past, one of the senior leaders of the PDP had suggested that the Hurriyat leaders should be made the part of the all-party delegation to New Delhi so that they could speak about the ceasefire demand and talk to the Centre.
Such an assertion by none other than the ruling camp has made the separatists in Kashmir relevant that too post NIA raids when they were exposed before the people to the fullest.
As per reports, the separatists apart from the ceasefire have now begun demanding justice in recent cases of killings, release of political prisoners and confidence building measures aimed at serious dialogue process.
A senior PDP leader and a minister had recently asked the separatists, especially the Hurriyat, "to join hands with the all-party delegation likely to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi and press for a ceasefire."
Both the factions of Hurriyat have maintained a silence. Any stand of the Hurriyat factions, headed by Syed Ali Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, has to have the backing of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir-based UJC, especially Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin.
A New Delhi based newspaper quoted its sources in the government, saying back channels with many stakeholders have been activated to "have a consensus on ceasefire." Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti also sought inputs from the security agencies, including the army on "measures required for cessation of hostilities in J&K" during the Unified Headquarters meeting last week, where she called for "scaling down operations during Ramadan and the Amarnath yatra."
Describing the silence of Pakistan and militant conglomerate UJC as "meaningful", another senior PDP leader had stated that time is opportune for Pakistan to respond to the new situation and the call for a ceasefire. "Pakistan and other stakeholders need to take a stand. The ceasefire could prove to be a confidence building measure, leading to a dialogue. This could be a starting point for creating a conducive atmosphere for a dialogue over J&K. If all parties agree to a ceasefire, both external and internal dialogue processes will get a fillip in the near future. The ceasefire has to be dialogue-oriented."
He asked local regional parties, including the National Conference (NC), to come out openly in favour of a ceasefire. "We have reached a situation in J&K where a Class 9 student tells his mother he wants to achieve martyrdom. It's becoming an explosive situation. We all need to end the cycle of violence. Guns, whether of security forces or militants, will not achieve anything," the leader was quoted by a New Delhi based newspaper as having said.
