Kashmir continues to be jolted by the border intrusions of Pakistan Army force targeting Indian Army quarters as well as Police posts thus killing police , Army and innocent civilians with impunity .
The attack on CRPF Training Centre by militants ON 31ST December 2017 at Lethpora , Pulwama was lethal one ,killing five CRPF persons and injuring three seriously.
Home Grown militants
Pakistan is poised to continue its belligerent hostile war with India thus keeping Kashmir conundrum alive.
The state Separators , pawns in the hands of Pakistan are being successfully used to fuel the youth of Kashmir towards radicalisation path to raise home grown Militants . Thus ensuring their involvement to make Kashmir Separator Movement , a Movement of the people of Kashmir .
The recent spurt in the local youths joining Militancy to be part of fidayeen attacks in the valley is a matter of grave concern.
Fardeen Khanday 16, and Manzoor Baba 22, were killed in 31st December attack on CRPF Training Center at Pulwama , making it probably first fidayeen suicide attack in Kashmir involving local militants. The third killed was reported to be a Pakistani .
Fardeen khanday belonged to Tral ,the home of Hizb-ul Mujahideen Commander Burhan Wani , and one more militant Aaquib Moulvi killed in encounter in March last year ,was his neighbour.It is reported that Fradeen was very much disturbed after killing of Aaquib .and this could have been strong reason of his being part of fidayeen attack.
Manzoor Baba had earlier surfaced in the attack of November 4 by a group of militants in Pulwama.
But all of them escaped at that time killing one official.
He again attacked CRPF Training Center in Pulwama and got killed this time. As matter of fact being part of fidayeen suicide attack.
Reasons And possible Solutions
It will be wrong to ascertain that the upswing of youth joining militancy and the turmoil thereby caused is direct consequence of dispute over the accession to India .
The youths born after 1990,the year of rising militancy in Kashmir, witnessed turbulent state of affairs all these years. They did not see peaceful good times ,when Kashmir ushered in glory and galloped on to the path of progress.
The current turbid times made them to fall prey to the ploy of Separators and Pakistan backed militants to wage a war with Indian Army and Police, seen as oppressors .
This was complicated by state and Centre pursuing the policy of hard mascular militaristic approach to weed out militancy .
The militancy has not ended .Apart from bloodshed and violence it caused more alienation of the people especially the youth .
It is high time to have a positive re-thinking on the Kashmir issue from larger perspective and put an end to combative policy instead..
CM Mehbooba Mufti Bold Message
In a bold message to mainstream and separatist politicians CM Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday 9th January 2017 said “ I want to bring this on record today that whatsoever the J&K people ,mainstream or outside mainstream ,get will be from this country and no one else. Whatsoever you have got till today has come from here and whatsoever you get in future ,whether it is dignity ,or opening of new routes ,taking trade to the next level ,or dialogue so as to end bloodshed,has to be given by our country and not by any foreign nation”
This is a good beginning in telling the basic truth to the people and youth of Kashmir so that they come to terms with the Govt of the day.
Her admittance of the bad situation over last two years is in itself a sincere move to redress the situation on part of the Govt.
CM Mehbooba Mufti should build confidence in the minds of youth by interacting directly ,so that they are weaned away from the present tortuous state of minds and assuring them of better tomorrow. In fact all state political leaders of various Parties must engage the youth to peaceful path and thus help the cause for the good.
PM Mr Modi with huge mandate should make sincere efforts to address to the Kashmir situation like his two predecessors Mr Atal Vajpayee and Dr ManMohan Singh .
Both tried to build a bridge of friendship but Pakistan’s belligerency came in the way.
Mr Modi has capacity to take an extra mile and thus work to workable solution on permanent basis.
The hard task needs for an inclusive politics meaning to take all political parties into a huddle and thus make positive contribution. Nothing cannot be achieved singularly .
The question of accession is complete and irrevocable.
We expect India ,under the present Central Govt , has enough spine to declare in emphatic terms having no intention to discuss Kashmir with Pakistan.
A natural discipline has to be evolved by political parties to cry halt to disparate opinions to preserve the integrity and unity by speaking in one voice on sensitive issues of grave consequences the like one of Kashmir .
It should go a long way in strengthening the hands of the Govt of the Day in tackling not only Kashmir but other international issues concerning our country and the world.
