Pak journalist dubs Abdullahs, Muftis, PoK leaders ‘beneficiaries of Kashmir industry’
Says Kashmir was a burden for Pakistan

Early Times Report

Jammu, June 10: In a major embarrassment for the National Conference and the Peoples Democratic Party, which often demand “talks and good relations with Pakistan”, a senior journalist from the neighboring country has dubbed Abdullahs and Muftis as the “beneficiaries of Kashmir industry” and that they should mend their ways now.
At the first-ever literary festival held in the Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir’s capital of Muzaffarabad, Pakistani journalist Wusatullah Khan said Kashmir was a burden for Pakistan and that NC President Dr Farooq Abdullah and his PDP counterpart Mehbooba Mufti are beneficiaries of Kashmir industry.
He said all the political parties of POK were also the beneficiaries of the same “Kashmir industry.”
Interestingly those protesting against the abrogation of the so called special status of Jammu and Kashmir got exposed right inside the POK during the Pakistan Literature Festivals (PLFs) during the special session that was actually supposed to be on the Article 370 and 35A.
During the special session the Pakistani journalist said that Kashmir was not an issue but industry while the Abdullahs and Muftis were among the major beneficiaries.
“The livelihood of Farooq Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and that of the entire political class of ‘Azad Kashmir’ (PoK) is associated with this industry,” the Pakistani journalist said.
Interestingly the bashing has come when Dr Farooq Abdullah, who is also a Member Parliament, recently reiterated that India should hold talks with Pakistan over Kashmir.
Mehbooba Mufti on the other hand has been making similar statements quite often.
Observers said it was a major embarrassment for the Abdullahs and the Muftis that even Pakistani voices want them to be silent now.
Credit for the change in perception is largely being given to the abrogation of the so called special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, 2019 after which the “culture of hartals and stone pelting has ended and Kashmir is on the new path of peace and prosperity.”
Despite repeated attempts the Abdullahs and Muftis couldn’t be contacted for comments.
