No Martyrs Day anniversary in Kashmir this July, restrictions on cards
7/6/2020 12:43:58 AM
Early Times Report

Srinagar, July 5: Come July 13 and the “annual politics of wreath laying at the Martyrs Graveyard” in Srinagar is all set to become a thing of past from this year as the government in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir is unlikely to allow “continuance of the tradition cashed of the dynasts for political motives.”
Sources said intelligence agencies have inputs that some regional Kashmir -centric politicians would try to misuse the event to meet their ulterior motives.
Sources said in the wake of the inputs of apprehended violence, the government of Jammu and Kashmir has decided that congregational gathering of the politicians or their workers would not be allowed at the graveyard in downtown of Srinagar.
Sources said that the matter was recently discussed at a high level security meeting wherein in was discussed that no such event should be allowed that can derail the ongoing peace process in the militancy infested Kashmir.
Sources said on the fateful day, the graveyard venue would be kept out of bounds for the politicians.
It is pertinent to mention that for the past over seventy years, the Kashmir-based regional politicians had been exploiting the “Martyrs Day as an event to nurture separatist sentiment.”
“This day and venue had become a combination of fueling the separatist sentiment, and the dynasts especially the National Conference had cashed it to its best for their political motives only to be followed by the PDP and even Congress,” said a senior official on the condition of anonymity.
Pertinently, after the revocation of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, the government has already cancelled the gazetted holiday for July 13 as had been for the last so many decades.
When contacted a senior official said no final decision has been taken as yet about the issue.
“The issue has been brought to the notice but any decision is awaited,” the official said on the condition of anonymity.
