Kashmir Burning like never before whilst Muslim Rulers Abandoned them
As reported in Dawn dt: 04-May-17, Mr. Dulat former head of India’s external spy agency RAW said. “There were more guns then... Actual militancy was more then but today the situation is scarier. When stone-pelting is done by youths, and girls, it’s abnormal... Today, they are proud of being stone-pelters. They are no longer hiding. Schoolgirls and women are coming out to throw stones. The Kashmir situation has never been so bad,” “There is a sense of hopelessness. They aren’t afraid to die. Villagers, students and even girls are coming out on the streets. This has never happened in the past.”
The martyrdom of Burhan Wani, a young 21-year-old freedom fighter at the hands of Indian forces in July 2016 brought new surge of resistance amongst the Muslim masses of Kashmir occupied by India. Thousands attended his funeral further infuriating the Hindu-state. Since then the brutal Indian state in their exasperation to suppress the new wave of resistance perpetrated horrific atrocities in Indian occupied Kashmir. They imposed weeks of curfew causing shortage of food and other basic needs, killed more than 150 Muslims whilst injuring thousands, more than 6,000 suffered pellet guns injuries alone, more than 10,000 arrested.
In a bid to rally support from its masses and divert the attention from Kashmir issue, the Indian regime severed its ties with Pakistan, killed its dozens of soldiers at border, allegedly carried surgical strikes on Pakistan side of border, and politically rallied different countries in the region for “isolating” Pakistan. On other hand during these months the rulers of Pakistan instead of mobilizing the Pak-army for liberation of Kashmir, followed US dictates of exercising “restraint” at LOC borders and pursued “normalization” of relation by offering several concessions to India, such as weakening the case of Kulbashan Yadhav, the Indian spy in pak army's custody, curbing the Kashmiri Mujahideen based in Pakistan and attending 6th Heart of Asia Conference in India. And as reported by the Dawn Newspaper, on 20 December 2016, the newly appointed Commander, Southern Command, Lt Gen Aamir Riaz, even advised India to share in the fruits of future development by joining the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.
The rulers of Pakistan through these actions attempted to diffuse the strong public opinion at home and in Kashmir for the support of liberation movement, enabling them to bury Kashmir issue and normalize relation with India. The situation in recent weeks has been so volatile that the Muslims of Kashmir boycotted the by-election on 09 April, forcing the authorities to suspend the internet services in the area and send 20,000 paramilitary forces augmenting to the already stationed troops of around 500,000, yet these measures yielded no fruits for the Indian state as the turnout was 6.5% which is the lowest ever recorded in the valley. However the development in recent days has further shaken the thrones and plans of Indian and Pakistani regime, as not only have the school and college going young Muslim boys have turned up for protests in huge numbers but young Muslim women have also taken to streets. As mentioned above, the former RAW Chief highlighted the situation has gotten out of Indian control. India in its frustration have gone berserk, as it has now even officially banned different social media forums for curbing the Kashmiri voices and furthermore has also started new massive anti-terror operations against the Muslims of Kashmir.
Kashmir is burning whilst their calls fall on deaf ears of treacherous Pakistani rulers as they faithfully comply with the US plan. The US plan to make India a regional power to counter the Chinese influence whilst it wants Pakistan to subjugate before India in this plan. It is only khilafah which will expel the American forces and diplomats, close its embassy cum operation centers and sabotage its plan for the region. The Khilafah "Caliphate" (Caliphate) upon the method of the Prophethood will mobilize the Muslim armies for liberation of Kashmir. The Khalifah will raise the call of Jihad and protect the Muslim men and women from the clutches of brutal Hindu state. As was seen in Kargil conflict, thousands of Indian army were not even able to compete a handful of Kashmiri Mujahideen, how will they be able to counter the formidable professional Muslim army?
Allah (swt) said,
(فَلاَ تَهِنُواْ وَتَدْعُوۤاْ إِلَى ٱلسَّلْمِ وَأَنتُمُ ٱلأَعْلَوْنَ وَٱللَّهُ مَعَكُمْ وَلَن يَتِرَكُمْ أَعْمَالَكُمْ)
“So be not weak, asking for peace, while you are having the upper hand. Allah is with you, and will never decrease the reward of your good deeds.” [Muhammad: 35]
