Will Geelani leaving Hurriyat mark end of anti- India politics in Kashmir?

Early Times Report

Jammu, June 29: The 91- year-old Hurriyat hawk Syed Ali Geelani bidding adieu to his conglomerate has sent out a loud and clear message that separatism in Kashmir is dying with each passing day.
On Monday, the die- hard Pro Pakistani supporter who spearheaded several anti- India demonstrations in Kashmir surprised everyone with his audio message in which he declared that he is quitting Hurriyat Conference which he himself had founded and headed for about two decades. The reasons Geelani has given for leaving the amalgam was the lack of discipline within its ranks and silence maintained post abrogation of Article 370.
Such a major development is a very tectonic shift in Kashmir’s separatist landscape and could usher in a new era of moderate politics and an end of stern and stubbornness within the separatist ranks. Meanwhile, if there is one thing that has come out as a crux of the entire development it is an end of the separatism in Kashmir.
The Hurriyat Conference losing its grip and control over the Valley was evident from the fact that last year even ahead of the 370 abrogation, when Home Minister Amit Shah visited Valley, the separatists including Geelani for the first time since the eruption of militancy in 1990, issued no strike call on Home Minister’s visit. Post Abrogation of 370, separatists issued no strike or chalo calls.
It was in June 2018 when in a statement, the separatists jointly termed Kashmiris as hospitable and had even gone ahead with welcoming the Amarnath pilgrims to Valley. All this was 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 tourists against Kashmir, leaving the tourism sector in dire straits. As NIA at that time had hinted at a massive crackdown against the Hurriyat once again, the separatists including Syed Ali Geelani- a known pro-Pakistani voice in Kashmir had begun welcoming the Amarnath pilgrims. What he and other separatists forgot how they used to oppose the religious pilgrimage in the past. The statement that separatists issued at that point of time about annual amaranth yatra was first of its kind since he formed his faction of Hurriat conference. Geelani at that time 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 had 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.
Now, when Geelani has sought refuge in seclusion, will it end the anti-India politics?
