Gupkar Dharna or Drama

November 19, 2021 |

People of Kashmir have always been taken for a ride by the politicians and the rhetorical show was again on full display when out of the blue, the former chief minister and National Conference who’s who descended from Gupkar to nearby Sonwar park to register their protest against the Hyderpora killings. Interestingly, Omar Abdullah was vocal in reminding people of Kashmir his experience as the CM who chaired the Unified Command meetings. This token protest was triggered by the vocal and local anger against the events wherein two businessmen were killed in Hyderpora and the subsequent reactions from their families were heart wrenching and justified. Here the cries of victims’ daughters sent shock waves among the souls watching them seeking justice and the mortal remains of their near ones who were hurriedly buried in far off Handwara. Omar Abdullah’s sit-in wearing pheran drew sarcastic comments and reactions in the social media and rightly so when they compared his tenure during which no justice was delivered to Tufail Matoo whose parents left no stone unturned seeking punishment to the killers of their only son in 2010. Omar as CM in 2010 never met Ashraf Matoo, Tufail’s father or the parents of those 110 youth who were killed during the protests. Nor did any of the youth had trust in him as CM in delivery of justice. The judicial probe of 2010 never saw light of the day and is  gathering dust in some office. The politicians assume that people have short memories and it’s better to take advantage of the gullible by sympathizing with them at a time when they  are angry and as their anger slowly dies down so would the memory lapse about the incident. But the youngsters of present Kashmir are too clever to be fooled as evident by their feedback on social media reminding the politicians to shun this hypocrisy. On similar lines, the Peoples Conference did join the bandwagon of protests and raised hue and cry seeking justice for the families of Altaf Bhat and Mudasir Gul.  Peoples Conference too was part of Peoples’ Democratic Party led Coalition government in 2016 when more than 90 youth were killed. Mehbooba Mufti was the chief minister and home minister under whose tenure there were killings and pellet victims. Both Omar, Mehbooba remained glued to their chairs in 2010 and 2016 and never resigned in protest but justified the killings which is recorded everywhere. The BJP led government at Centre, well aware about the killings of protesting youth in the past, took stringent measures of harsh curfew and clampdown following the August 5, 2019 events and ensured that no innocent young blood is spilled on the streets of Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370.  There has been no repeat of 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013 and 2016 when hundreds of youth belonging to the poor strata of society died during protests. It was only during Ghulam Nabi Azad’s tenure as CM who saw that justice is delivered and perpetrators are brought to book so that confidence of people was restored in the governance and government.
