Smelling Conspiracy

After breaking their silence over past few days over the threat issued against them by former Hizbul Mujahideen commander, Zakir Musa, the separatist leadership has called for unity among political and militant organizations “to follow the freedom struggle with vision and wisdom. The leadership has smelled planned conspiracy against the ongoing movement and the leaders spearheading the joint resistance camps. In an apparent reference to Zakir Musa’s threat, the separatists have expressed their concern over the recent developments. In a joint statement issued by Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik referred to the “more awful and complex” situation in 1990s. “We paid the price in terms of precious lives. We were engaged in petty and non-serious matters and instead of following logic we were swayed by our emotions. Disunity and differences proved disastrous in the past and enemy forces succeeded at various stages to sabotage our mission.” The leaders have said that it was time to remain united “and follow the cherished goal with spirit of persistence and unity among all concerned factions”. “Freedom movement is in its crucial stage. We need to be careful as our enemy can derive advantage from prevailing crises. We stand by our earlier statement and we are following the freedom struggle.” The leaders said the authorities have choked their voice. Some of them believe one hand, they are hatching conspiracies and on the other are employing all their repressive measures and military might to sabotage the movement. However, all political and militant factions have decided to remain united. While it is a fact the separatist leadership was successful in waving off the label terminology of hardliners and moderate, “and unified nation on one point program of freedom from forced occupation. Political and militant leadership must remain fully aware about all odds. The State government on one site is minimizing their activities by pushing them under house arrest, the separatists have urged youth to learn much more from senior leadership and we all need to go hand in hand and work together to achieve our mission. It is time to rethink our strategies and work them out unanimously as to how to get freedom from the forcible clutches and occupation of India. Zakir Musa, who was heading the Hizbul Mujahideen, quit the militant outfit on Saturday after the group refused to back his statement warning that Hurriyat leaders would be beheaded for calling the Kashmir issue “political”. Zakir had asserted that he along with his colleagues was only fighting for the freedom for Islam and not for seeking a secular country.
