In last few months have seen a decisive revelation from NIA when it caught on the terror funding network and inducted various political leaders including prominent heads who are part of separatists. Important to note are the remarks from a recently released Army officer who remarked that a Kashmiri Political leader even transported a terrorist into the valley in his official car. Now the Hurriyat Leaders after losing their image and steam, so are desperately trying to gain prominence by use of new track of backdoor diplomacy saying that it is all for peaceful dialogue but brewing troubles on Kashmiri youth by funding them to pelt stones on security forces, whilst their children are earning either in cushy government jobs or are settled in western countries. They even earned money from funds gained by recommending Kashmiri youth whom they consider as their own children and funded these stone pelters. We should remember that these stone pelters mobilized innocent men women and children into the streets while brewed venom into their minds, polluting their vision and got them hit by either tear gas shells or rubber bullets.

In Kashmir, the joint resistance leadership has said that Kashmir is not a territorial dispute but a human and political issue, which can only be settled through dialogue among Pakistan, India and the genuine Kashmiri leadership. It may be noted that the Indian government stand has been quite clear that unless the atmosphere is made conducive for dialogue, peace returns to the valley no dialogue is possible more so Pakistan is no party to any of the dialogue process being a foreign country. 

The resistance leaders, including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement issued after a meeting in Srinagar, deplored that instead of creating a conducive environment for such a process, India is focused on enhancing military power against the Kashmiri people. They did not give any statistics or figures in any form while claiming the same.

They also said that this military approach is resulting in continued killings, blinding and injuring of people while political activists have been jailed. The troops killed the youth during a military operation in Machil area of the district. Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front-R has expressed concern over the plight of Kashmiri political detainees languishing in different jails of India and the occupied territory. It may again be right to emphasize that the three leaders did not give out any empirical data substantiate their claims. They have been claiming the same in the past too which was time and again investigated by various independent journalists and has found to be a blatant lie. These tactics have deeply thought top be from their mentors across the borders who have been funding them through hawala transactions. NIA has recently been blocking all these hawala routes. These activities of Indian Investigative agency efforts have serious implications on funding of various political parties. Some leaders even remarked the agencies to prove the claims. NIA has been slow in steady in progressing their claims they also refrained from commenting on a recent survey conducted by a daily from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) which gave out statistics that 70% of the population in PoK wanted to move away from Pakistan.
