அரசியல் பிரச்சாரத்தின் ஆதாரக் கோட்பாடு.

'' நீதி, மதம், அரசியல், சமுதாயம் சம்பந்தமான எல்லாவித சொல்லடுக்குகளுக்கும் பிரகடனங்களுக்கும் வாக்குறுதிகளுக்கும் பின்னே ஏதாவதொரு வர்க்கத்தின் நலன்கள் ஒழிந்து நிற்பதைக் கண்டுகொள்ள மக்கள் தெரிந்துகொள்ளாத வரையில் அரசியலில் அவர்கள் முட்டாள்தனமான ஏமாளிகளாகவும் தம்மைத் தாமே ஏமாற்றிக்கொள்வோராகவும் இருந்தனர், எப்போதும் இருப்பார்கள். பழைய ஏற்பாடு ஒவ்வொன்றும் எவ்வளவுதான் காட்டு மிராண்டித் தனமாகவும் அழுகிப் போனதாகவும் தோன்றிய போதிலும் ஏதாவது ஒரு ஆளும்வர்க்கத்தின் சக்தியைக் கொண்டு அது நிலைநிறுத்தப்பட்டு வருகிறது. சீர்திருத்தங்கள், அபிவிருத்திகள் ஆகியவற்றின் ஆதரவாளர்கள் இதை உணராத வரையில் பழைய அமைப்பு முறையின் பாதுகாவலர்கள் அவர்களை என்றென்றும் முட்டாளாக்கிக் கொண்டே இருப்பார்கள். இந்த வர்க்கங்களின் எதிர்ப்பைத் தகர்த்து ஒழிப்பதற்கு ஒரே ஒரு வழிதான் உண்டு. அது என்ன?

பழைமையைத் துடைத்தெறியவும் புதுமையைச் சிருக்ஷ்டிக்கவும் திறன் பெற்றவையும், சமுதாயத்தில் தாங்கள் வகிக்கும் ஸ்தானத்தின் காரணமாக அப்படிச் சிருக்ஷ்டித்துக் தீரவேண்டிய நிர்ப்பந்தத்திலிருக்கிறவையுமான சக்திகளை, நம்மைச் சூழ்ந்துள்ள இதே சமுதாயத்துக்குள்ளேயே நாம் கண்டுபிடித்து, அந்தச் சக்திகளுக்கு ஞானமூட்டிப் போராட்டத்துக்கு ஸ்தாபன ரீதியாகத் திரட்ட வேண்டும். இது ஒன்றேதான் வழி.

With no let-up in clashes and protests, at least 30 people including a woman sustained injuries across Kashmir on Thursday while forces “wreaked havoc” in Prichoo village of South Kashmir’s Pulwama district by damaging residential houses and household goods. Reports of damage to residential houses by forces also poured in from North Kashmir’s Sopore area. Stringent curfew remained in place in old Srinagar areas and almost all major towns across Kashmir. Amid rain, several pro-freedom rallies were held in South Kashmir villages, reports and witnesses said.

SOUTH KASHMIR

Stringent curfew was clamped in Pulwama district following killing of 18-year-old youth by forces on Wednesday. Forces wreaked havoc in Prichoo village by vandalizing property and thrashing inmates, local residents told Greater Kashmir. Curfew also remained in place in all major towns of South Kashmir even as pro-freedom rallies were held in many peripheral pockets.

In Pulwama town and adjoining villages, police and paramilitary forces armed with sophisticated weapons were deployed in strength to thwart attempts of protests. The forces had laid spools of concertina wire, erected barricades and also placed armoured vehicles and mobile bunkers at several places.  Nobody was allowed to venture out of their houses. Whosoever tried to do so was beaten to pulp, locals said.

They said even ambulances were not allowed to move and curfew passes were not adhered to by forces on ground.

Meanwhile, CRPF and SOG men let loose a reign of terror in Prichoo village, forcing people to abandon their houses and take shelter in neighbouring villages. The highhandedness comes day after forces foiled a pro-freedom rally in the area by vandalizing the venue, evoking massive protests in entire Pulwama.

“The government forces barged into our houses, vandalized and looted the property and thrashed the inmates,” locals told Greater Kashmir over phone.

They said forces even damaged household items—refrigerators, washing-machines and even threw out eatables. “We have abandoned our houses and taken shelter at our relatives’ houses in nearby villages,” said the terrified villagers.

The residents of Tahab village alleged a patrolling party of CRPF resorted to aerial firing during midnight, triggering panic in the area.

Meanwhile, despite forces foiling the rallies by vandalizing venues, the freedom congregations continued in South Kashmir areas. The rallies have become a norm during the ongoing anti-India uprising triggered by the killing of Hizb commander Burhan Wani on July 8. At least 100 such rallies have been so far held in South Kashmir areas where religious scholars of various sects and local pro-freedom activists have been the key speakers.

In Shopian district, pro-freedom rallies were held in Gadapora, Rebban Khujipora and Kadigam-Imam Sahib while in Pulwama, these were organized in Achan and Pachar areas.

Similar rallies were held in Nowpora-Kellam in Kulgam district.

A rally was also organized in Kehribal village of Mattan in Anantnag district which was addressed by Democratic Freedom Party leader, Er Farooq Khan, Tehreek-I-Hurriyat Tehsil president Shangus, Muhmamad Shafi Wagay and religious clerics of various sects. Religious leaders of Sikh community also addressed the rally which saw participation of many Sikhs as well.

Reports of clashes were received from Qazigund area of Anantnag district. A truck driver sustained injuries during these clashes. Meanwhile, curfew continued in Anantnag, Kulgam, Pulwama, Shopian and Pampore towns for 47th running day.

Clashes erupted in old town areas of Anantnag and Khanabal late in the evening. Police carried out several overnight raids in the town, rounding up several youth. Similar reports were received from other areas of South Kashmir.

On the call of joint resistance leadership, pro-freedom and anti-India slogans were written on walls and streets of South Kashmir.

Late evening reports said intense clashes were going on in Bijbehara while protests were held in various villages of Pulwama.

Reports said Army patrolled the streets of Shopian and some areas of Pulwama.

A youth was injured after he was hit by a tear-gas shell fired by forces in Bandipora area. Witnesses said clashes broke out in Qazipora area of Bandipora when youth were holding a protest rally and forces fired tear-gas shells to disperse them. The injured youth has been identified as Asif Ahmed Sheikh of Qazipora. He has been shifted to Sub District Hospital Bandipora.

Earlier, clashes erupted in Kaloosa area when youth tried to hold a protest rally against the civilian killings in Kashmir. However, a huge posse of police and paramilitary forces intercepted them and fired several tear smoke shells. The clashes were going on in the area when last reports came in.
In Hanjiveera, Pattan in Baramulla district, locals alleged that police resorted to intense tear-gas shelling, injuring dozens of persons especially those who were spending time on shop-fronts. “The area was peaceful. Some youth were present on shop-fronts. Police arrived and fired tear-smoke shells on them, injuring dozens. This is a move to instigate people for protests,” the locals said.
Reports from Sopore said at least 12 people include a woman sustained pellet and tear gas shell injuries at Zainageer, Warpora, Hathlangoo and Dangerpora villages when forces resorted to unprovoked firing on peaceful protestors.

Reports said forces also damaged windowpanes of a local masjid at Najar Mohalla, Dangerpora.
Locals of Sopore also castigated BSNL authorities for snapping mobile and broadband services in the area for the past four days.

BSNL broadband services stand snapped in the area for three days.

SRINAGAR

Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was detained this evening ahead of the Eidgah chalo call given by the joint resistance leadership for Friday.  Reports said a massive protest rally was held from Jamia Masjid in the evening against the desecration of the grand mosque 27 years ago.

Mirwaiz was supposed to address the gathering over phone after Maghrib prayers. However, he was detained well before people assembled at the Jamia Masjid and lodged in police station Nigeen. He was released later only to be put under house-detention again.

Meanwhile, reports said intense clashes were going on between forces and youth at Lawaypora, Narbal, HMT and Qamarwari.
