Geelani's 'Jamhooriyat' formulation a sham
Jammu & Kashmir not homogeneous

Early Times Report
Jammu, Aug 23: Under surveillance pro-Pak Syed Ali Shah Geelani doesn't know what he says. On the one hand, he invokes Vaypayee's Insaniyat, Jamhooriyat and so-called Kashmiriyat doctrine so that the Jammu & Kashmir issue was resolved. In the same breath, he urges all "pro-Islam forces" to unite against India so that the state was rid of all Indian presence.
The other day, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani, asked New Delhi to show Insaniyat (humanity), Jamhooriyat (democracy) and Kashmiriyat to resolve the Kashmir dispute and pitched for unity among the separatist groups.
"During this struggle, we should show unity. We should not have any differences. All the pro-freedom and pro-Islam people should unite and fight this struggle. People should unite for Islam instead of taking separate paths," he said.
His appeal for unity came at a time when many top Hurriyat leaders are under the National Investigation Agency (NIA) custody and when another top Hurriyat leader Shabir Ahmad Shah is in custody of Enforcement Directorate (ED).
Geelani also asked the Indian leadership to "show Insaniyat, Kashmiriyat and Jamhooriyat and shun this denial approach and give Kashmiris a chance to decide their fate". He added that the "time has come for Indian leadership to give Kashmiris their basic rights".
Geelani said India claims to be a largest democracy in the world but when it comes to Kashmir, it is not following the democratic norms. "I also wish India should proper and develop, but it should not deny us our fundamental right," he said.
How could the Insaniyat and Jamhooriya doctrine go hand in hand with his suggestion for unity among all Muslims not for democratic rights or democratic space but for Islam? Jammu & Kashmir is not a one-community region. Nor is it an independent entity. Jammu & Kashmir is a part of democratic India which houses almost all the communities, including all the 72 Muslim sects. India has a constitution which provides equal rights to all, irrespective of caste, creed and region. There is a system in place.
Like the rest of the country, Jammu & Kashmir is also multi-cultural, multi-religious, multi-ethnic and multi-lingual state. No region or no community can have the right to impose its will on all.
Geelani should remember that Jammu & Kashmir also house at least 6 million Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists and they are not a small minority. Their rights, aspirations, needs and compulsions just cannot be ignored. More than that, he and ilk should remember that Indian cannot grant any concession to any community or any state on the basis of religion.
