Youth earlier lured towards militancy surrendering arms, Pak proxies in tizzy

Jammu, Oct 29: Amid the failing separatist politics in Kashmir, militancy in the region too seems to be on its last leg with youth lured to tread the violent path also understating the dreadful game plans and preferring to surrender instead of losing lives for nothing.
This year it was after decades of active militancy in Kashmir valley that militants have begun surrendering themselves along with their armoury. The trend has signified a larger change in region’s overall dynamics of pak-sponsored terrorism and separatist politics. It hints at the beginning of an end of three decade long Pak sponsored militancy in Kashmir.
“This year so far eight surrenders took place in live encounters in the Valley of which five militants surrendered in the month of October alone,” Inspector General of Police (IGP) Vijay Kumar told reporters in Srinagar on October28.
This week, one militant was killed in a gunfight at Noorpora area of Awantipora Kashmir while the other surrendered before the security forces. Two militants who had gone missing in September this year also surrendered before the forces in Sopore area of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district.
Replying to a query that encounters are taking place in Srinagar and city outskirts, he said it was because of the smooth flow of intelligence inputs and other technical information, Srinagar police came to know about the militant movement in the city.
Along with the surrender trend of the militants in Kashmir, separatists too seem to have been falling in line. For the first time, on October 27, this year, no Hartal call has been issued by any of the separatist factions in the Valley. The separatists with the help of militant groups till last year since the onset of militancy were issuing strike calls on October 27. October 27 marks the day when in 1947 Indian army marched into Kashmir to thwart the entry of Pakistani tribesmen in Kashmir.
“What we are witnessing at present is drastically different from what we used to have prevalent in an otherwise volatile valley of Kashmir. The changing dynamics of separatism is going to help in a long way to make peace an inseparable feature in Kashmir,” says a senior journalist working for a New Delhi based news paper from Srinagar.
Meanwhile, the silence prevalent within the separatist circles seems to have done a trick in making the active militants believe that what they are doing is not worth in any manner and that instead of getting themselves killed and putting their families in jeopardy, it is better to lead a normal prosperous life.
The trend has also raised hopes that Kashmir is finally staring at the peaceful times ahead. Time for Pakistan to accept that it’s proxy war has no takers in Kashmir now.
