The separatist Hurriyat Conference is finished in J&K but attempts are being made to keep it alive from Pakistan, and the militancy in the region is on crutches.
Most of the madrassas (Islamic seminaries) are doing a good job but a tight vigil is being maintained on such institutions whose students have become militants in the past.
Hurriyat (Conference) is finished in Jammu and Kashmir. To keep it alive, its chapter was opened in Pakistan and they are giving bandh’ calls from there.
“People gave a tight slap on their face by rejecting their bandh calls, which was evident from the fact that there was no strike on August 5 (the third anniversary of revocation of Article 370 and bifurcation of J&K into two Union Territories) and August 15.”
August 15 was celebrated in a befitting manner all across the J&K, from Kishtwar to Kathua and in the Kashmir valley with people hoisting the national flag on their homes.
“The remote Karnah and Keran along the Line of Control (in north Kashmir’s Kupwara) where the tricolour is still seen fluttering from top of every house,”.
The people of J&K want peace and they have understood the criminal folly of Pakistan which is trying to instigate the youths against their own country.
“Pakistan is misusing social media.”
Recent arrest of a madrassa teacher in Kishtwar, most part madrassas are doing a good job.
“Some people from madrassas joined militancy in the past and so it is imperative to have a close watch on them, and change their mind set.”
Youngsters with positive thinking are always welcomed.
On September 3, a 25-year-old madrassa teacher was arrested under Enemy Agents Ordinance Act’ for allegedly passing on information related to security installations to Pakistani intelligence agencies and terrorists.
“About the terrorists active in Kishtwar, the guardians of peace’ are more active than militants who are almost wiped out from the region.”
The militancy is on crutches with one or two active members, and they too will be neutralized’.
