'They lacked courage to safeguard national interests, puncture Azadi balloon'
End of road for Kashmir-centric leaders?
9/16/2019 10:42:15 PM
Early Times Report
JAMMU, Sept 16: The Jammu & Kashmir administration is maintaining a complete silence over the fate of politicians who were placed under detention soon after the Government of India reorganized J&K into two union territories on 5th August.
According to the media reports more than 50 political leaders have been lodged at Centaur Hotel on banks of Dal Lake in Srinagar. The Centaur Hotel has been declared as a Sub-Jail. Three former Chief Ministers of J&K, Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti continue to be under preventive detention in Srinagar at different places.
There was speculations that talks are being held with the Kashmir-centric leaders and they could be released soon but the Jammu & Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik recently stated that "no one is talking" to the detained leaders and he closed the chapter.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said, "It seems Kashmir-centric leaders are not being freed due to their dubious track record. If the government decides to release them there is every possibility about them raising the bogey of Kashmir being a dispute and they will try to instigate people."
He said that history stands testimony to the fact that none of the Kashmiri leaders, barring a few, during the past seventy years have dared to call spade a spade and tell their people that Kashmir is an integral part of India and Azadi is an illusion. "Despite ruling the state for more than seventy years Kashmir-centric leaders ignored the national interests and kept on talking in the language of separatists and Pakistan," the analyst added.
An observer said, "Kashmir-centric leaders have started believing that they can get away with everything and they are the only ones who can rule Jammu & Kashmir. They had succeeded in creating a notion that they (Kashmir-centric leaders) only can manage the affairs of Jammu & Kashmir and if they were sidelined, Kashmir would burn and no one would be able to save it."
"Former Chief Minister of the state and the president of the Peoples' Democratic Party Mehbooba Mufti after entering into an alliance with Bharatiya Janta Party had started believing that she could dictate terms to centre. Her soft policy towards terrorists and separatists as the Chief Minister of the state proved to be one of the biggest blunders. It was during her tenure that terrorism resurfaced in the Valley," said a Kashmir watcher.
He said that J&K's oldest party National Conference too has misled the people during all these years by raising hollow slogans and making all possible attempts to appease Pakistan and their stooges in Kashmir. "The leaders of these parties will have to mend their ways if they want to be a part of new India otherwise road has ended for them," the Kashmir watcher added.
