Separatists exploring escape routes in Kashmir
As NIA crackdown intensifies
5/9/2019 11:35:51 PM
Early Times Report
Jammu, May 9: Call it NIA effect or anything else, the separatists in Kashmir have all of a sudden gone into oblivion, with no statements, no anti-India rants and no spiting of venom being witnessed anywhere within the spectrum.
Political experts believe that this was for the first time since the inception of separatism in Kashmir that there was no boycott call issued by any separatist leader during the recently held Parliament polls in the state.
Neither Mirwaiz Umar Farooq nor JKLF's Yasin Malik issued a single call for poll boycott. However, it was Syed Ali Geelani who issued a statement of few lines asking people to stay away from polls. Underneath the statement was a message that revealed how reluctant has the hawk turned in his rants. What used to be a series of statements in the past became a few lined statement, revealing absolutely nothing.
Reports inform that the separatists in Kashmir are turning irrelevant with each passing day and these otherwise outlaws too have now decided to live a life of comfort instead of annoying the union and opening a Pandora's box against themselves.
The process of showing soft face begun soon after the NIA cracked whip against the separatists in Kashmir last year. It was in June last year when in a statement, the separatists jointly termed Kashmiris as hospitable and have even gone ahead with welcoming the Amarnath pilgrims to Valley. All this is being done by them to hoodwink public opinion and distract the masses from the crimes they have committed against the people and how they have repeatedly developed fear psychosis in the minds of then tourists against Kashmir, leaving the tourism sector dying on a deathbed.
As NIA has hinted at a massive crackdown against the Hurriyat once again, the separatists including Syed Ali Geelani- a known pro-Pakistani voice in Kashmir has begun welcoming the Amarnath pilgrims in June 29's statement. What he and other separatists forgot was their own venom they used to spit against the religious pilgrimage in the past.
Meanwhile, the statement that separatists issued about annual amaranth yatra was first of its kind since he formed his faction of Hurriyat Conference. The aged separatist termed the alleged "terror threat" to the upcoming Amarnath Yatra as a "calculated move aimed at maligning and discrediting the political struggle of Kashmiris."
Elaborating, he said that Amarnath yatra is being conducted for decades and the people here have treated the pilgrims with unique hospitality and received them as their guests.
Meanwhile, recently when parliament polls were held, the silence adopted by the separatists wasn't surprising in anyway. It was expected from them to raise white flags.
