Kashmir centric parties promoting 'anti-national' agenda to garner votes
Project their workers as 'mujahideen'; offer legal aid to banned Jamaat, JKLF

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Mar 26: As the battle lines have been drawn for the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls, Kashmir centric politicians are playing a dirty game by calling their party workers as "mujahideen" (warriors).
Just few days ago former chief minister and president of Peoples Democratic Party Mehbooba Mufti while addressing a rally called her party workers as "mujahideen."
On Tuesday National Conference general secretary Ali Mohammad Sagar while addressing a rally in Baramulla district said that NC workers are "real mujahideen." Just two days ago Mohammad Akbar Lone, NC candidate from Baramulla constituency, raised pro-Pakistan slogans during an election rally. The video f the rally went viral.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said that "Kashmir centric parties are once again trying to appease Pakistan stooges and people sitting in the neighbouring country. Election Commission of India should take a note of what these parties are doing and act against them."
He said, "These politicians need to be told in clear terms that they are contesting the elections in India and not in Pakistan and they cannot cross the line by glorifying the enemy country and the terrorists."
A Kashmir watcher said, "Jammu and Kashmir Police too are acting as mute spectators and are not taking the cognisance of the anti-national slogans being raised by the leaders of these parties. It seems they fear that these people could be in power tomorrow that's why they don't want to annoy them. The J&K Police seems to have given a free hand to them."
Another top PDP leader has offered legal assistance to the banned Jamaat-e-Isalmi and JKLF. "We are ready to provide legal assistance to both the JKLF and JeI, provided they trust us," the PDP leader said while addressing an election rally in Baramulla.
Both JKLF and the JeI have been declared unlawful associations by the Centre and have been banned in Jammu and Kashmir.
An observer said that "Kashmir centric politicians by invoking the separatist sentiments to garner votes could prove dangerous. By doing so theyare promoting anti-national feelings and are giving chance to elements inimical to peace to vitiate the atmosphere."
While referring to the offer of a PDP leader to provide legal assistance to banned Jamaat-e-Islami and JKLF, the observer said that "Had these outfits not been banned none of these parties would have been able to run election campaign in the Valley. These politicians pretend as if they are totally unaware about the ground situation."
"These parties have also been telling voters that they will get their children released from jails if they vote them. These parties even offer legal support to militants. This all being done for political interests without considering the security," said a source.
A source in PDP said that son of a senior leader, who is lawyer by profession, has been pleading the cases of stone pelters. "Mehbooba Mufti has told a gatherings in south Kashmir that her party's legal cell will help in releasing of stone pelters," the source said.
"The PDP has hired a group of lawyers who plead the cases of stone pelters and who are part of separatists," an advocate of the High Court said. "This is just to appease the separatists ahead of polls," the source said.
According to sources, the lawyers representing the NC have filed petitions against the PSA. In these petitions, they have sought the quashing of the PSA on the youth who were allegedly involved in disturbing law and order and indulged in stone pelting. The NC has former advocate general head of party's legal cell.
"These lawyers are being paid by the National Conference to plead the cases of stone pelters and some are also part of separatist groups," a senior NC leader confirmed. "We don't charge these people who were arrested by police allegedly involved in stone pelting," he said.
