Jammu, Jan 21: The Pro-Pak separatists in Kashmir seem to have finally understood that their sponsoring country- Pakistan is losing the game and now have out in open been pleading for the end to border skirmishes between India and Pakistan.
With Indian government giving befitting reply to Pakistan on borders the separatists, who keep singing praises for Pakistan and its army have turned into the pro-Pak doves.
None other than the Pro-Pak separatist Sayeed Ali Geelani has come out with a detailed statement, urging both the countries to stop fighting. The situation in which the Indian government has been giving tough replies to Pakistan seems to have worried Geelani who now is finding ways to end the attacks.
"War and inconsistencies are no options. Instead, they cause devastation and destruction. Both India and Pakistan are nuclear countries and any flare-up can prove detrimental," Geelani said in a statement, giving enough hints that Pakistan once again has lost the battle and is now using its men as pigeons with message of truce.
Earlier, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq who last year created headlines by celebrating Pakistan's win in Kashmir, issued a detailed statement, asking both the countries to end hostilities.
The separatist in Kashmir these days are busy expressing concern over the rising flare-up along the LoC in the state, where civilians and soldiers have been killed in unabated ceasefire violations in recent days. Earlier, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who heads his faction of Hurriyat Conference in Kashmir had issued a statement and had condemned the violence along the LoC and urged India and Pakistan to stop the "senseless bloodshed".
Meanwhile, it was today the turn of Syed Ali Geelani to play his role. Geelani said, "The risk of collision" between the two nuclear-power nations will remain "unless Kashmir dispute is resolved". He accused the "Indian armed forces" of misleading their "own people" and the international community by keeping the LoC "hot and tense".
He appealed India and Pakistan to demonstrate "restraint and wisdom and play a constructive role for a peaceful resolution of the Kashmir issue". "War is neither an option nor a solution to issues," he said.
Pertinently, till Saturday, Pakistan Rangers continued firing and shelling along IB in Arnia, Ramgarh, Samba and Hiranagar sectors till 5 AM this morning, police officers said.
While firing and shelling ended in Hiranagar, Samba and Arnia around 1.30 AM today, it continued in Ramgarh sector till 5.30 AM.
Over 10,000 people living along the IB migrated to safer places and most of them have been camping in houses of their relatives, they said.
Over a thousand people are housed in camps in R S Pura, Samba and Kathua areas, they said.
Authorities have closed nearly 300 schools and other educational institutions along IB and LoC in Jammu, Samba, Kathua, Rajouri and Poonch for next three days in wake of exchange of shelling and firing.
