Kashmiri youth wiser than so-called leaders

When situation in Kashmir demands saner and wiser heads to douse flames of unrest, statement of former Chief Minister, in contrast to that of valley young minds confirms that the youth of Valley is wiser than so called Kashmiri leaders with Omar Abdullah included.
Burhan Wani, the Hizbul Mujahideen commander carried a reward of Rs ten lakhs on his head. His killing with his two close associates in anti-militancy operation is perceived a major success. The reward he carried reveals of threat he posed. For reason of his age, reach and acceptability the ensuing reaction is on expected lines. At this critical juncture statement of former CM Omar Abdullah that Kashmir’s “disaffected have got “a new icon” in his death has amazed all . Omar said, “Mark my words – Burhan’s ability to recruit into militancy from the grave will far outstrip anything he could have done on social media.
BJP state spokesperson S.S.Bijral, former IGP termed statement Of NC President as irrational, obsessive and driven by desire to sail in two boats – choose as per suitability. He said when flames of civilian violence call for dousing, NC leader, in whose tenure 110 youths had lost life in security forces firing, fuels it. Had he been in power, he would have taken all credit instead. Pained over loss of life of our own people, the young, who need better counselling and guides, Bijral, constrained, recalled words of wisdom of Benjamin Franklin: “The heart of a fool is in his mouth, but the mouth of a wise man is in his heart.”
Former IGP Bijral lauded statement ofJunaid Qureshi, Kashmiri rebel leader Hashim Qureshi’s son, questioning real motive of separatist leaders who have all along kept their family members out of the harm way. Junaid threw a poser to so called Kashmiri leaders,”If jihad is so pious, why don’t you (separatists) or your children pick it (gun) up.” “Unfortunately, poor people’s sons are dying on streets and you (separatists) are glorifying it. Children of these leaders are tucked away in safe environments in schools in Malaysia, America, London or India. We picked up guns 26 years ago, what have we achieved. People died. This must end.” Bijral welcomed the statement of Junaid Qureshi and said its for all to see ‘the mouth of wise Junaid Qureshi is in his heart’. Lot many must be nurturing same feelings, he said.
Bijral, reminding the likes of Junaid Qureshi, the visionary and bright youth of Kashmir of whom many have cracked civil services exam with brilliance, called upon them to deliberate on words of wisdom of Socrates : “THE SECRET OF CHANGE IS TO FOCUS ALL YOUR ENERGY, NOT ON FIGHTING THE OLD, BUT ON BUILDING THE NEW.” He said under the new young, dynamic leadership of Mehbooba Mufti, who is led by her heart and has far sighted vision to build the poor long suffering state, under changed promising scenario, let all energies be focused on uplifting our poor people for coming generations.
