After NIA raids on Kashmiri separatists, Syed Geelani begs for charity to run his organization!

The Narendra Modi government’s aggressive tactics in Kashmir have left many befuddled, particularly the anti-national elements in the state. The Army has brought CASO and SADO back, and the government has asked the Army to finish off all terrorists in the Valley in the next few months. Along with this, separatists are being arrested, and their properties are being raided.

The backbone of all anti-national activities is money. Without funding, every perverse ideology is a waste. Separatists in the Valley have an ideology that harbours on hatred towards the Indian Army and the country.

In the last few days, the National Investigating Agency (NIA) has expedited probes into the terror funding in the state. Syed Geelani’s organisation Tehreek-e-Hurriyat is also under NIA’s scanner.

During raids conducted by the NIA, it questioned numerous activists of the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat to gather information about the money they receive through various Hawala channels. It was Geelani’s right hand man, Nayeem Khan, who was caught confessing that funds from Pakistan and other nations reach Geelani first and then the other activists.

This sudden onslaught of the NIA has left Geelani begging for charity to run his organisation. He said in a statement: “Tehreek-e-Hurriyat is a cadre-based party and its units are working across the state and hence need generous help for day-to-day needs and expenditures.”

There definitely is a plan behind the recent aggression that the government and the armed forces have displayed in the state.

First, the retaliation against those Pakistani posts which abet in pushing terrorists onto our soil. Then the continual operations in the Valley to surround and take out terrorists. Then taking into custody separatist leaders like Yasin Malik and a few others. And now clamping down on their funding.

The government is going full throttle in ceasing anti-national activities of these people so that they are made irrelevant in the future. The next possible step could be stripping these people of the security they get from the taxpayers’ money.
