PAKISTAN's terror agents are trying out a new plan to get the youth of Kashmir involved in violence for grabbing the state from India. The agents are advocating terrorism to separate Kashmir from India. They are bringing in Islam in order to urge Kashmiris to fight against the governmnet. The "Azadi" slogans are no longer relevant. Now the youth is told to "pick up a stone or weapon for Islam". Democracy or nationalism is no longer relevant. There will be an Islamic movement in Kashmir. It will be a violent, separatist movement against India.
Pakistan seems to have put the plan already into action. Stone pelting has increased. The separatists - Geelani and others - have tried to hold rallies against the holding of by-polls in the state. It is feared that the separatists will also accept the Islamic plan. They may not give up the Kashmiriat identify but may accept the Islamic strategy.
It is time both the Centre and the state government saw the fast changes that are taking place in Kashmir and initiated necessary action. The government of Jammu and Kashmir must give greater assistance to the army to fight Pakistani terror agents who are trying to brainwash our youth. Separatists who do not recognise the Constitution and opportunists like Farooq Abdulla must attract proper state action. They have been doing a lot of harm to the state and it is time suitable action is taken against them.
