The divisive politics has come to the fore front once again when some stranded-Kashmir bound passengers shouting ‘pro-Pakistan slogans’ to air resentment against the administration in Jammu for not providing transit facilities to them. One knows well with unpredictable snowfall and inclement weather the road as well as air connectivity remains off the service and raising of such slogans reek of the regional biases of Kashmir-centric leaders, who never missed an opportunity to raise an issue of nothing. Every year the scene of Kashmir bound passengers stuck-up in Jammu during peak winters is a common site and slogan shouting too is also but never is pro-Pakistan slogans raised that too from a mosque. Does the whole game look very simple? And the funniest part is police cane-charging students who had come out of the college after hearing the commotion from mosque. Police resorted to cane-charge on the students for raising pro-India slogans. It’s an irony that the police find pro-India stand of Jammu irritating, otherwise what was the need to resort to cane-charge on the students when the provocation was from Kashmir-bound passengers. Kashmiri leaders’ penchant for Pakistan has kept the political as well as terrorists pot boiling. So much of commotion has been raised it is unfortunate that the so-called pro-Jammu leaders are yet to awake to the cause as compared to the Kashmiri leaders taking to social media to rant on the situation. For Kashmiri leaders ‘any issue’ especially happening outside Kashmir has larger dimensions and threatening to their existence. On the other hand silence on the part of Jammu leaders shows apathy in all terms. At least these leaders should have stood with the college students who were protesting against such nefarious designs of Kashmiri leaders who wanted to rake political benefits through these stranded passengers and to defame the administration. Kashmir’s love for Pakistan everyone knows is the way pressure is asserted by Kashmir-centric leaders on Centre and State administration for their own nefarious motives. Kashmiri leaders hardly reacted when a woman was shot and killed by the terrorists. There was no condemnation of the incident. It reflects the double-speak of Kashmiri leaders on nationalism.
