Published

April is turning into a horrific month for Kashmir. COVID-19 and the battle between militants and armed forces have drastically escalated killing the soldiers, civilians and scores of militants.

Intensified Cross-Border Shelling By Indian Army Linked To Anger Over Gulf Criticism: Pakistan

In the last 24 hours, there have been three separate attacks on the Indian defence forces in which three CRPF troops were injured. Today, two militants and a ‘militant associate’ were killed in an encounter with the security forces in Goripora area of Awantipora in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district, the J&K police said.

The pre-dawn operation kicked into action after the police received intelligence bout the presence of militants, a police officer said. Security forces then launched a cordon-and-search operation in Goripora village but the operation soon turned into an encounter as the militants fired at the armed forces, forcing the latter to retaliate.

In another separate incident, two militants were killed in a gunfight with security forces at Herpora village of Frisal in South Kashmir’s Kulgam district Friday evening. The J&K police officer was abducted from his house and later the security forces launched a manhunt to rescue the officer. Two police officers were injured in the process and the militants were eliminated.

“The militants were ambushed by a joint team of police and army’s 1-RR near Herpora village while they were ferrying a cop, they had earlier abducted, in their vehicle,” Inspector General of Police Kashmir, Vijay Kumar confirmed.

As EurAsian Times reported earlier, J&K has witnessed 33 incidents in 2020 in which 79 people have been killed so far. Out of these, 57 were militants and the rest members of the armed forces and civilians. The revised numbers show more than 60 militants killed as per latest reports from South Asia Terrorism Portal.

Earlier on Friday, militants attacked a CRPF camp in Kashmir’s Budgam district. The assailants threw a grenade and opened fire Dooniwari village camp of the paramilitary force. 3 CRPF jawan received minor injures in the attack.

“Militants hurled a grenade towards the camp and then fired from automatic weapons. The fire was retaliated, forcing the militants to flee,” an officer told a news agency.

According to local media reports, the injured have been identified as Inspector Mayesh Chand, constable G. Prakesh Rao and constable K. Sirnu, according to local media reports. After the attack, the area was sealed to trace the attackers.

Stone Pelting, Militancy & Funerals Have No End in Kashmir?

This is one of many attacks on CRPF jawans in recent times. Four CRPF men have been killed in two separate militant attacks in Kashmir as reported by EurAsian Times.  On April 7, a CRPF man was killed in Anantnag district and last week, militants attacked a CRPF check-post in Sopore in north Kashmir that left three CRPF men dead and two other injured.

Kashmir has been in complete turmoil this month. Militant activities are on the rise and so is the cross border shelling and infiltration. The Indian armed forces have also been on their toes and have been quick to flush out militants and retaliate to Pakistani ceasefire violations along the volatile Line of Control.

Has Top Separatist Leader SAS Geelani Laid Down His Arms Or Making Last Attempt On Kashmir?

Published

on

Syed Ali Shah Geelani (SAS Geelani) recently announced his resignation from the Hurriyat Conference. Geelani has been vehemently pitching for complete independence of Jammu and Kashmir or a merger with Pakistan and refusing to negotiate with New Delhi.

In an audio message, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, said, “In view of the present situation, I resign from All Parties Hurriyat Conference. I have informed all the constituents of the Hurriyat about the decision.”

According to reports in HindustanTimes, Syed Ali Shah Geelani – the former Hurriyat boss and seen by many as an icon of resistance in Kashmir had been upset about his weakening grip over his grouping’s faction in Pakistan-administered Kashmir (PaK).

90+-year-old Geelani, the most prominent pro-Pakistan leader in Jammu and Kashmir had been chairman of Hurriyat Conference since its inception in 2003. He has been politically inactive especially since the abrogation of Article 370 by Modi-Government.

HT report claims that Pakistani intelligence agency – ISI had been promoting lesser-known leaders which ignited differences with Pakistan. Geelani had nominated Abdullah Gilani to the top post who is the brother SAR Gilani – acquitted in the 2001 Parliament attack case in New Delhi.

However, Pakistan declined Geelani’s nomination and preferred Mohammad Hussain Khateeb. Mustafa Mohammad Hussain Khateeb as per Pakistan’s media was unanimously elected as the interim convener of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference Azad Jammu and Kashmir.

HT claims that Geelani had been deeply offended that representatives of the PaK chapter had been sending their relatives to the PaK assembly over the last two years, were indisciplined, engaged in widespread corruption and loot.

As per reports, Pakistan wanted to expel the old horse and bring in younger members to assume a leadership role so that they are more competitive in battling India. Pakistan agencies had been frustrated with Geelani for his incompetence in inciting people to hit streets after New Delhi revoked Article 370 last year.

In this letter, Geelani had stated – “The activities of these representatives were limited now to seeking access to assemblies and ministries for joining the government there. Some members were expelled while others started holding their own meetings. These activities were endorsed by you by holding a meeting here to ratify their decisions.”

“I sent messages to you through various means so that the next course of action could be decided but all my efforts went in vain. Now that the sword of accountability is hanging over your heads for the financial and other irregularities, you thought of calling the advisory committee meeting,” he alleged.

“The lack of discipline and other deficiencies were ignored and you did not allow a robust accountability system to be established over the years but today, you have crossed all limits and indulged in rebellion against the leadership,” he added.

Kashmiri experts talking to EurAsian Times says that people are still with Geelani and he holds a massive sway in the valley. The only way to resolve the Kashmir issue is through dialogue and it would be interesting to see of Geelani lays his arms down (to Pakistan) or decides to go down in the history as the saviour of Kashmir (by initiating an earnest dialogue with India).

Last year, Syed Ali Shah Geelani was reprimanded by Pakistan for his remarks on the condition of Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang province of China.  Geelani’s remarks did not go down well Pakistan — a country that many experts believe controls the separatist organisations in Jammu and Kashmir.

Geelani had stated in his statement: China was “not behaving well” with Uighur Muslims and that they had been forced into camps forcibly.

The separatists in Kashmir, as experts have suggested, are remote-controlled by Pakistan for anti-India activities mainly in the volatile Kashmir Valley. While China has always been silent on overt Pakistani support to separatists, Geelani’s comments on Uighur Muslims drew angry reactions from Beijing.

Experts talking to EurAsian Times states that it is a chain reaction – China will rebuke Pakistan and Islamabad will reprimand the old-horse – Syed Ali Shah Geelani.
