The true picture of hypocritical separatist leaders of Kashmir!
Although Jammu & Kashmir is an integral part of India, Pakistan claims that the land has been illegally occupied by India and considers it to be a disputed territory, purely because of its Muslim majority population. There are certain groups in the state that are sympathetic towards Pakistan's stand on Kashmir. These groups or parties are headed by separatist leaders, who allegedly receive funds from Pakistan.

A fine such example would be the case of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, who is considered as the big daddy of separatist movement in Kashmir. Geelani, has openly claimed that he is not an Indian by birth and it is his compulsion to travel on an Indian passport.

The question is not whether he considers himself an Indian or not, but is he even a Kashmiri? The simple definition of separatist leaders like Geelani would be that they are narrow-minded hyphenated Muslim Kashmiris, who are miles apart from the syncretism of Kashmiriyat. They deliberately chose to see Kashmir though their own glasses of religion, completely disregarding the existence of other communities in the state.

These separatist leaders of Kashmir are masters at provoking the youth of the Valley. These leaders play with their careers and lives, instigate them to stop everything and take part in the struggle for a 'free Kashmir'. While on the other hand, they make sure that their own family members are not affected by these disturbances and send them either out of the country or state, to lead peaceful lives.

Few of such cases have been discussed below:

Yasin Malik, Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF):

The Kashmiri militant-turned-separatist leader Yasin Malik generally advocates Islamic dress code for Muslim women. But, you would be shocked to see a picture that has recently gone viral on social media, where his wife is seen wearing a trendy outfit. Mashaal (Yasin's import from Pakistan) is seen posing with her husband Yasin Malik to please a paparazzi. There is no burqua, or head-to-toe veil, or any scarf to cover the head as per orthodox Islamic dress code. This shows the hypocrisy that the separatist leader has adopted in personal life, a far cry from his public image.

Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistani:

Syed Ali Shah Geelani who has destroyed the future of so many young people of the Valley, has kept his own grandson away from this so-called fight for freedom. Tabush Geelani, his grandson, works with a Dubai based marketing and communication company. He has also worked as a cabin crew with Spicejet in the past.

Hurriyat Conference leader, Syed Ali Shah Geelani lives in the Hyderpora area of Srinagar, but spends the harsh winter months in Delhi, at a house in the posh Malviya Nagar area. His son, Dr Naim-ul-Zaffer Gilani and his wife Dr Rehana Nazir returned to India in 2010, after spending many years in Pakistan, working as doctors.

Hashim Qureshi, pro-independence Jammu Kashmir Democratic Liberation Party:

The two sons of Hashim Qureshi, the leader of the pro-independence Jammu Kashmir Democratic Liberation Party are settled outside India.

Asiya Andrabi, Dukhtaran-e-Millat:

Firebrand separatist leader and Dukhtaran-e-Millat chief Asiya Andrabi's son, Mohammed Bin Qasim is in Malaysia where he is pursuing Bachelors of Information Technology at Islamic University of Malaysia. In a Facebook post he was seen chilling around with his friends in Malaysia, while her mother was busy glorifying the youth who join militant ranks in Kashmir and get killed.

Mohammad Ashraf Ali, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu Kashmir:

Mohammad Ashraf Ali was one of the key Hurriyat leaders during the 2010 unrest in Kashmir. He is also considered to be the successor of Syed Ali Shah Geelani. However his son, who has studied computer engineering is working with a company in Dubai and living a posh life.
