    Stop looking through prism of Pakistan: Dehalvi to Geelani

    Chairman of the Anjuman Minhaje Rasool (S), Maulana Syed Hussain Dehalvi, on Saturday advised Kashmir separatists especially Hurriyat hardliner Syed Ali Shah Geelani to stop looking through the prism of Pakistan for restoration of peace and normalcy in Kashmir .

    Referring to the prayer meeting held by Geelani in Valley to pay homage to Laden, he said that the Hurriyat leader by such acts was doing no good to peace loving people of Kashmir especially when even the Muslim world had in one voice described US as the creator and eliminator of Osama. Such acts are bound to spoil the already fragile peace in Valley where both Hindus and Muslims are yearning to live together in peace and amity, he added.

    Dehalvi further said that it was wrong to associate the slain Al Qaeda leader with a particular community, adding that Osama had never been the identity of Islam and the Muslim world.

    The Anjuman leader, who had been in the state on three day visit, also asked India to formulate an independent policy to deal with cross border terror. Like US troops killing Osama during a raid at Abbottabad in Pakistan , India too reserves a right to hit terrorists training camps across the Line of Control, he added.

    ---------------------

    As the militancy threat reduces in Kashmir, more and more peopl can be expected to standup to Geelani's useless politics.

    Just adding another article, where others have taken an opposite pov from Geelani. Even the former "PM of PoK" believes that there has been more development on the Indian side.

    Taken by J&K development, PoK leader snubs Geelani - Times Of India

    ISLAMABAD: In a virtual snub to separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani's stand that Pakistan should not talk to India on matters like trade till the Kashmir issue is resolved, senior PoK politician Sultan Mehmood Chaudhry on Thursday said things should "start moving and rolling".

    Chaudhry, the former "Prime Minister" of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, said he had conveyed his position to Geelani during a recent meeting in Srinagar.

    "Geelani has his views and wants (J&K) to join Pakistan... I told him that status quo does not suit us. Things should start moving and rolling," he said.

    Chaudhry said he had stated his position after Geelani reiterated his stance that Pakistan should hold talks with India on issues like boosting trade only after the resolution of the Kashmir issue. Chaudhry, who was addressing a news conference on his return from his first visit to India, was impressed with what he saw in J&K.

    "The truth is there has been more development on that side. It is very beautiful and I visited a golf course and a trout fishing farm...I have seen those things and we should take steps to implement similar measures here," he said.

    Geelani list his relevance long back. All the stone pelting last year was a result of his desperation along with that of the Pakis.

    That Kashmir on our side is doing well is known to all. People here enjoy more freedom is known to all. They have more rights than other Indians, something that the rest of India opposes. A decade from now, people will forget about joining Pakistan, that is if Pakistan in the current form exists.

    There is a romanticism about an independent Kashmir among many, and such people are probably a majority in the Kashmir Valley only. Most of them realise it is not possible. Kashmir will either be under India, Pakistan or PRC. They cannot be independent. Now, keeping such people apart, among the rest, an overwhelming majority want to be with India and a miniscule minority want to be with Pakistan.

    It will be easier to win the hearts and minds of Kashmiris if only extra judicial killings could be avoided. It is fragile and sensitive, but Kashmir can be won over, and bullet is not the final answer.
