Pak stooges call for strike despite traders, transporters rejecting 'hartal politics'
Habits Die Hard!

Early Times Report

Jammu, Dec 9: Despite facing stiff opposition from the traders, transporters and other sections of the society, the so-called Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Hurriyat hawk Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Hurriyat dove Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and the so-called JKLF chief Yasin Malik have called for a shutdown in Kashmir on Monday on the occasion of World Human Rights Day.
It may be recalled that traders addressed a news conference in Srinagar last week and told the separatists in clear terms that they don't want to follow any of their strike calls. "Pak stooges cannot mend their ways. They have to give strike calls just to appease their bosses sitting across the Line of Control. Their strike calls hardly make any difference in Kashmir now as in most of the areas life goes on without any hassles," said an analyst.
He said, "Except a few areas strike calls don't find any takers anywhere in the Valley. These Pak stooges are aware of it but they still go ahead and give hartal calls. They know that if they don't do it the people who are sponsoring them would get annoyed and they would stop funding them."
A Kashmir watcher said that there are reports that separatist handlers have told their stooges to activate their henchmen to foment trouble in the Valley as the militants are falling like "sitting ducks." "The people sitting across the LoC want to keep people busy with stone pelting, strikes and shutdowns so that they could once again recruit the youth in militant ranks.
Attempts of militant handlers to send the terrorists from PoK to Jammu and Kashmir are not yielding any results as the robust counter infiltration grid near the LoC is not allowing them to sneak in," he said. The Kashmir watcher claimed, "Separatists by holding candle light protests and instigating youth to indulge in stone pelting are trying to build the momentum ahead of forthcoming Assembly polls in the state. Their attempts to disrupt the Panchayat elections did not yield any results as people came out and exercised their franchise.
They (separatists) know it very well that if people come out and vote in Assembly elections it would be the vote against them and vote for them being in favour of the democracy."
He said that Maximum people in Kashmir have rejected the "hartal politics" of the separatists and they want to live in peace. "People not supporting the militants and separatists anymore has sent the alarm bells ringing in PoK and in Pakistan. Now they are looking for ways and means to foment trouble in Kashmir again as sponsoring militancy and funding separatists are not helping their cause," he added.
