Shutdown call evokes poor response, UN chalo call has no takers

Early Times Report

Jammu, Dec 10: After staging hiding drama for the past few days, the so-called JKLF chief Yasin Malik was arrested by Jammu and Kashmir Police on Sunday at Maisuma in Srinagar city.
Interestingly, Maisuma is the place where Malik stays. "If Malik had gone into hiding then how come he appeared in Maisuma near his home today?" asked a critic.
It is in place to mention here that so-called joint separatist leadership comprising Hurriyat hawk Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Hurriyat dove Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Malik had called for a shutdown and UN office chalo today on the occasion of World Human Rights Day.
Reports said that shutdown call did not evoke much response and the people did not march towards the UN office in Sonawar. "Only a handful of JKLF activists assembled at Maisuma and staged a protest but they were dispersed by the police," reports added. Authorities had imposed restrictions in a few areas which disrupted the normal life in these areas. "It is unfortunate that we have to bear the brunt of the dirty politics played by the separatists. We have realized that shutdown and chalos don't serve any purpose. Police arrested Malik today but he will be out again and would resort to some nuisance again to trouble the common people," said a businessman wishing not to be named. He said, "In this week they (separatists) disrupted the normal life twice by calling for shutdown. Now they have again called for Anantnag chalo on December 15. They would again foment trouble and create scenes to add to the miseries of the people." A Kashmir watcher said, "Problem with the Jammu and Kashmir government is that they want to appease the separatists and want to be soft towards them. They (separatists) are taking advantage of government's soft policy." A police official said, "As per our information separatists are trying to regroup and Malik in order to appease his masters is spearheading the hartal and chalo politics. During the past one year he has been sent to Central Jail on many occasions but he comes out within a week. He needs to be booked and put behind the bars for at least two years." Reports revealed that normal life across Kashmir remained unaffected. Shops and business establishments remained open and traffic plied as usual on inter-district routes. "We are not interested in any calls. What we have achieved by observing shutdowns for the past 30-years," reports added.
