65 days of Unrest in Kashmir; story remains the same

Its the 65th day of unrest in Kashmir, the central and state government aren’t able to find any permanent solution to the unrest. More than 70 youths were killed and hundreds of security forces were injured following the protests in the valley.

Like before, Sunday had the same story in the valley, yet another protest at Pulwama district left many people injured when security forces fired pellets and burst teargas shells to disperse demonstrators, protesting against the raids in the district. The Hurriyat Conference (HC) and Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) are spearheading the agitation since July 9. Scores of people were on the streets after the news was spread that security forces and state police are conducting raids to arrest youths in Pulwama.

The separatists groups have asked their people to visit each and every household in their respective areas to prepare a list of needy persons. They would provide essential commodities and other items for Eid-ul-Azha, to be celebrated on September 13.

Hurriyat Conference (HC) chairman Mirwaiz Moulvi Omar Farooq, is presently lodged in sub jail. For the past nine Fridays, no prayer could be offered in the historic Masjid, where the Mirwaiz was addressing congregations every week.

We can only hope for a better tomorrow in Kashmir, as apparently our leaders look concerned about the ongoing crisis in the valley which has disrupted the lives of every common man living there.
