While the decision to free 4500 young boys who have been categorized as first-time stone –pelters is welcome if it helps in carrying forward the peace process set in motion by the Central government, haste in releasing them must be avoided cautioned Brig Anil Gupta, veteran Security Analyst and State Spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party. While the planned release of first-timers is needed for assuaging hurt feelings of the affected families and is seen as a positive healing touch, the past experience on this issue has not been very encouraging and healthy. A thorough screening to include past antecedents, police records including chances of a remote association with any terrorist outfit, intelligence inputs and family background (to rule out terror sympathizers) must be done before taking a decision to grant amnesty to any stone-pelter, suggested Brig Gupta.
On earlier occasions it has been experienced that after availing amnesty same persons were found recycled for stone-pelting during the large scale agitations that erupted in 2008, 2010 and after elimination of Burhan Wani. These stone pelters are housed in the jails with hard core terrorists who use this opportunity to further radicalize them and brainwash them with extremist ideology. The time spent in detention adds to their frustration and anger against the system which is exploited by the extremists, felt Brig Gupta. After thorough screening, the next logical step should be to De-radicalize them so that they can easily adjust themselves with the main stream and do not again fall prey to the extremist and anti-national elements recommended Brig Gupta.
Taking note of another welcome move wherein the misguided youth is shunning terrorism and returning home to lead a normal life, Brig Gupta felt that it was the responsibility of the government to ensure that these young men do not rue their decision to surrender/return to mainstream. In the absence of a comprehensive surrender policy large number of surrendered terrorists in the past have been recycled into the militancy accounting for increased number of local militants.Brig Gupta has recommended that the government should consider establishing De-radicalization and Rehabilitation Camps where all released stone pelters and surrendered militants should be housed for a definite period before they are allowed to merge with the society. The stay in these camps should be used for skill development /skill enhancement and De-radicalization. This will prepare the young men to face the vagaries of life and stand on their feet, act as ambassadors of peace and give boost to the peace process feels Brig Gupta.
As part of his mission to remain connected with the ground , MLC Vibodh Gupta conducted series of meetings at Thandikasi followed by Irwan Khetar and Panjgrian in Rajouri. While addressing the gatherings in these villages Vibodh Gupta said that our collation government is committed to peace, progress, and prosperity in all the three regions of the state. In last three years, Jammu and Kashmir has witnessed tremendous development in every sphere of life. He added, “NC-Congress could not tolerate the smooth working of BJP-PDP collation in the state and out of frustration their leaders are making unnecessary statements to provoke and misguide public especially the youth of Jammu and Kashmir”.While referring to the recent statement of Dr. Farooq Abdullah wherein he said that POJK is the part of Pakistan. Vibodh said that this statement manifests Abdullah’s frustration of being out of the power and now he wants to grab power in whatever way he can. He termed Dr. Farooq a player who always plays with the sentiments of common man. Sheikh Abdullah was part of the Constituent Assembly which has kept the provision of 25 seats reserved for the representatives of POJK. With this vague statement, Dr. Farooq has not only hurt the sentiments of people of Jammu and Kashmir but also double-crossed his own father and party. However, it has been a trend in Abdullah family to take U-turns. Sheikh Abdullah and his colleagues also changed their stand on Jammu and Kashmir accession with India overnight. Farooq and Omar Abdulla are carrying on his legacy of taking u-turns forward. He added India’s position on this issue is very very clear like a writing on the stone wall. In 1994 Indian parliament passed a unanimous resolution, clearly mentioning that Pakistan occupied Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India's territory. This statement is disgraceful and goes against the resolution unanimously passed by the Indian parliament. He added that Farooq saheb is one of the most senior leaders of J&K and such amateur and reckless statements don't suit his personality and experience. The rate of human rights violation in POJK is very high and BJP is most concerned about it. In recent past, we have also witnessed protests in POJK against Pakistan. I humbly request Dr. Abdullah not to make this issue a political one and to stand in support of our brothers and sisters living on the other side. He very categorically made it clear that POJK belongs to India and India belongs to people of POJK. While speaking on the same lines BJP senior leader Rajinder Gupta added that such statements are provocative in nature and need to be checked. He also added that the twin border districts of Rajouri and Poonch also witnessed tremendous development in last three years. We are committed to fulfilling our promises made three years before. Speaking on the occasions Atam Gupta also condemned the statement of Dr. Farooq Abdullah and requested him not to play with the sentiments of the common man for the sake of power.
