Where are separatists?
Kashmir is facing an unprecedented flood fury. Where are the hatred- spewing separatists and gun-totting terrorists? Why don’t they come to the help of the people of Kashmir, whom they claim to represent? Or are they too perched on rooftops seeking help for their lives? The same army whom they hate and abuse has come to the rescue of the people. The Air Force has launched massive day and night relief operations. The whole nation is with them. If the separatists’ wish for ‘Azad Kashmir’ had been fulfilled, what would have they done with their limited resources in this calamitous situation? Kashmir was a heaven on earth. They have turned it into a virtual hell. Some people got misled and supported them.
The separatists should introspect and retrace their path. Floods should serve as a God-sent message. The whole nation standing behind the people of Kashmir in their hour of need will hopefully change the mindset of the misguided elements.
