Delhi panics over Pro-Pakistani insurrection in Indian Occupied Kashmir

September 16, 2010

USAMA BIN SAEED

All Bharati forces are in a state of panic, with the BJP blaming the UPA and the military forces pointing fingers at the corrupt and inept Abdullah administration. The analysts seem to confirm that there is no military solution to Kashmir–all brutal means, rape, targeted killing, murder, mayhem, mass incarceration have been tried–they all failed. All Bharatis agree that that the current status quo cannot exist for long, and Kashmir is slipping away towards Pakistan. The Pro-Pakistani movement which started as a slip-slide has now turned into a n avalanche. The Pro-Pakistani leadership of Mr. Geelani, Andrabi led by the Hurriyat, Dukhtaran e Millat, Kashmir Muslim League and a host of other shadow forces which include the Lashkar have overwhelmed the political scene.

The fact that the Kashmiri leader who loudly proclaims that Hum Pakistan hain, aur Pakistan hamara hai” can raise the temperature to boiling point and then turn the spigot off in one call, gives us ample prof the that the nonsensical poll defined, designed and conducted by the Hindustan Times is bogus. The facts on the ground are not represented by the couple of thousand hand picked people who participated in the poll. Obviously Pro-Pakistani youth would be silly to identify themselves to the Hindustan Times for fear of being hauled away in the next military vehicle to sure torture or death. Geelani, Andrabai and a host of a new generation of Kashmiris have taken the mantle of the the struggle to join Pakistan, and those who want Kashmir to become another Sikkim are running from pillar to post to receive a hearing. Kashmiris support the Geelanis and they taunt the Bharati forces with “Bhago Bhago Lashkar ayah”.

NEW DELHI: All Parties Conference is currently underway to mull over the situation in Indian held Kashmir, as Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh sad only the negotiations are the only way to make any headway in this regard, Geo News reported Wednesday.

In occupied Kashmir, at least five more people were killed and sores others wounded in India-decimated Kashmir including an incident when Indian police opened fire at a peaceful procession at Mendhar in Poonch.

The witnesses told mediamen that the police fired upon the students, who were staging a peaceful protest against the alleged desecration of Quran in the US. “Firing was unprovoked and uncalled for,” they added.

The deceased were identified as Arshad Ahmed Khan, Alamdar Hussain Shah and Shameem Ahmed. The injured have been hospitalized where condition of a few of them is stated to be critical.

Following the killing of the protesters, hundreds of people took to the streets and staged a massive anti-India demonstration. The demonstrators set ablaze the office and residence of Sub Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) in the area. Indian Army has been called in and authorities have imposed indefinite curfew in the town.

At least 40 people were injured when occupation forces resorted to heavy baton charge, excessive teargas shelling and firing to break up anti-India demonstrations in Bijbehara, Islamabad, Pampore, Pulwama, Shopian and Kulgam areas.

At least 15 persons got injured, one of them critically, after the police and CRPF personnel opened fire to disperse the demonstrators in Cahdoora and Char areas of Budgam.

People took to the streets and staged pro-freedom demonstrations in Bemina, Boatman colony, Zainakot, Charar-e-Sharief, Khrew, Samboora, Tral, Awantipora, Shopian, Sumbal, Bandipore, Pampore, Tangmerg, Baramulla, Sopore, Handwara, Kupwara, Ganderbal, Pulwama, Kakapora and Islamabad areas. The police and troops swung into action and used indiscriminate force against the protesters, injuring several of them.

Over half a dozen people sustained injuries during clashes between the police and the protestors in Kishtwar. Massive protests also rocked Jammu, Doda, Rajouri and Banihal.

Meanwhile, a teenager, who drowned in Jehlum river after he was hit in his head by one of the bricks hurled by police and CRPF men on Monday at Khanabal in Islamabad town, is still missing. The police and CRPF troops looted money and ransacked house of District Bar Association Islamabad President and Democratic Freedom Party leader, Fayaz Ahmad Saudagar.

Pakistan can and should do more. It can freeze any moves on dialogue, cut off all access to Indian goods coming into Pakistan from vegetables to cotton, as well as the visas regime to get its message across of its foremost commitment to the Kashmir cause. If our policy is to give all moral, political and diplomatic support to the Kashmir struggle then we should do so on all these fronts. We should also move the OIC.

We have tended to ignore the latest intifada in Indian Occupied Kashmir – much to our shame – primarily at the behest of the US but also because of the questionable proclivities of our leadership. It is time to alter course and expose Indian terrorist designs in Occupied Kashmir. India of course has begun a multi-track propaganda for damage limitation including denying access to the media in Occupied Kashmir. A most devious part of this is the so-called poll by an Indian newspaper that claims to reveal that most Kashmiris favour independence and not joining Pakistan. We should see through such propagandist views and stick to our principled position of the right of self-determination for the Kashmir people which is the only way they can make clear what they want. But it is already clear what they do not want – and generations of Kashmiris have sacrificed their lives to demonstrate this fact – and that is to remain under Indian Occupation.
