Jamaat leader faces separatists’ ire after visit to Valley

The Hurriyat also castigated the Jamaat leader for saying that the BJP “has changed and that everybody there is not Sakshi Maharaj”.

While taking a dig at a Jamaat-e-Islami Hind leader who caused a flutter with his visit to Kashmir, the Syed Ali Shah Geelani-led hardline faction of the Hurriyat Conference claimed that visits by religious scholars to Kashmir were part of a “well thought out plan” of policy makers in Delhi.

A leader of Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) Hind, Ajaz Aslam, in a speech in south Kashmir reportedly said that Kashmiris “can’t win against a powerful country like India” and will achieve nothing by adopting the path of resistance.

The attack by Geelani-led Hurriyat on a JeI Hind leader is significant as it was the Jamaat-e-Islami in the state that had invited Aslam to the Valley. The Jamaat-e-Islami in J&K, however, is different from Jamaat-e-Islami Hind and seeks inspiration from Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan.

“The goals which India failed to achieve with the help of its military might and by giving benefits and perks, they want to achieve by buying services of some religious scholars,” Hurriyat spokesman Ayaz Akbar said.

Advising Aslam to read history, Hurriyat said he should have addressed his speech to New Delhi and not to Kashmiris.

“These are views of a person with a sense of defeat. It looks like the visit of the said leader is not any coincidence or any religious tour but a mission to dishearten the people of Kashmir and prepare them for unconditional slavery,” Hurriyat said.

The Hurriyat also castigated the Jamaat leader for saying that the BJP “has changed and that everybody there is not Sakshi Maharaj”.
