        simple if they are real mass leaders why government is spending crores on their security only the government is responsible for keeping their agenda of death and destruction alive why government is providing them freebies from taxpayers money dont arrest them time and again just treat them as criminals they are rather murderers and arsonists above all looters they protest daily just get more and more favours from government by black mail and exploiting masses on religious appeal this way the drama will never end every body knows that harping on separatism has now become their a corporate business they are not so illeterate to know that the accession of J K with India is legal and final but generation passed since the local leaders like sheikhs kept separatism sentiment alive a comon saying in Kashmir that Sheikh from 1953 showed rock salt in green hanki to Kashmiri muslims for 25 years and from 1971 his scheme changed and he himself termed plebicite useless and out of date

            These goondas are being arrested every week, then why are they released and not punished for their criminal acts? It looks like a serial drama by PDP.

                its difficult to understand that if Indian intelligence found separatist leaders taking bribe from pakistan to create unrest in jammu and kashmir what action they have taken to prevent such notorious leaders from creating disturbance in kashmir again? All the precautionary action should be taken against these traitors to prevent unrest in kashmir.

                  See that he celebrates Ramzan in jail, the correct place for him. Bring the others also. Further, finish him and the other seperatists leaders.
