As Kashmir burns, children of separatists enjoy luxurious life abroad

New Delhi: India is a dichotomous nation, especially when it comes to the Kashmir Valley.

While Hurriyat leaders and separatists have been telling Kashmiris to not send their children to army-run schools, alleging that these institutions were weaning the next generation away from their religion and culture, the family members and children of many of these have got the best education, settled abroad and eventually led a luxurious life.

An apparent example of how the kith and kin of these Hurriyat leaders availed the above-mentioned is the faction of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, which inversely always has goaded the youth of Kashmir to come out on the roads and leave their studies for a ‘bigger cause’, indirectly urging them for ‘stone-pelting’.

Nayeem Geelani, son of Geelani, who, a few days ago, had blamed the army-run schools for indoctrination, is a medical practitioner in Rawalpandi, Pakistan.

His other son, Zahoor, is crew member of a private airlines in India.

Geelani’s daughter is a teacher in Jeddah and her husband is an engineer there.

Mohammed Ashraf Sehrai, a general secretary of the Geelani faction, also availed the best education for his child. His son, Abid Sehrai, is a computer engineer in Dubai.

Earlier, Hurriyat hawk Geelani said, “We are losing our next generation. We should never send our youth to these institutions. We need to see what sort of education these institutions are imparting to our children.”

In an apparent reference to their efforts to integrate Kashmiri students into the national mainstream, the Hurriyat hardliner claimed the army-run schools were engaged in “mischievous activities.”

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), however, decried Geelani’s diktat, claiming the Hurriyat leader was scared of the army schools as they promote a “sense of nationalism” among Kashmiri children.

These statements come in the wake of a string of clashes between students and the security forces during which many innocent civilians were injured.
