This refers to an article:" The Road Ahead" by Firdos Syed. I am not surprised by his anti Hurriyat utterances as it has become his habit now. What has surprised me is that he criticized Hurriyat when in 2008 they halted the agitation due to Ramadan. His opinion that time was that this agitation should have been carried on as it had gathered the momentum. Then he criticized the Hurriyat for calling off the agitation and now he seems to be criticizing them for not calling off. My dear friend Firdous seems to question the credibility of everybody around except himself.
My second disagreement with him is about what he calls an impractical plan of action by protagonists of "Quit Kashmir". He seems to be telling us that the leadership should first give the time frame of the day of freedom and then take people along. Alas His own idea seems to be impractical let alone credible. History bears testimony that no leadership of any freedom movement could give the timeframe for their freedom - all they could give is hope. All they could give is their life for the cause. I may not be the follower of Quit Kashmir leaders but i will simply not agree with Mr. Firdous that they have been sidelined by youth. I suggest him to read Hassan Zainagiri's article `Who rules Kashmir' (GK, July30).
