Detained Kashmir-centric leaders 'threat to peace'

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Dec 15: Jammu & Kashmir administration has extended the detention of the National Conference president Farooq Abdullah under Public Safety Act (PSA) for 3 more months. This is an indication that detention of other Kashmir-centric leaders is all set to get prolonged.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said, "The 30-odd politicians of National Conference, PDP, Congress and People's Conference lodged at MLAs Hostel in Srinagar may not see the light at the end of the tunnel as the administration seems in no mood to set them free."
He said that Farooq's detention being extended is a clear signal that Kashmir-centric leaders are in big trouble. "The ones who have signed the bond were either released or shifted to their residences where they have been placed under house detention," the analyst added.
According to the media reports, the Jammu & Kashmir administration wants normalcy to return fully in the Valley and the helmsmen don't want to take any chances. "If the detained leaders are released they could be a threat to peace as they would try their level best to reestablish their credibility and to do so they can go to any extent," said an observer.
He said, "What is more surprising is that no one in Kashmir came out on streets to protest against the detention of these leaders nor did anyone react."
The observer said that the BJP leaders have been hinting that Kashmir-centric leaders won't be released soon and if they want they can contest the elections from the jail. "The BJP leaders are trying to tell everyone that Kashmir-centric leaders did not enjoy any public support and were ruling the erstwhile state of Jammu & Kashmir due to the Ashirwad of New Delhi. Now that Ashirwad has gone and they have ended up in a jail," the observer added.
Another analyst said, "Kashmir-centric leaders need to find a way out as their shops stand winded up and their parties decimated. Even if they are released they will find it very difficult to rejuvenate their parties and workers. They have an uphill task at their hands. If they want to restart their careers they will have to change their narrative and toe the nationalist line. Their slogans of Kashmir being a dispute, and Pakistan being a party to it holds no water now. For them coming days are not going to be that easy."
