History is a way to take lessons, one who does not learn from history only regrets it.The way law and order is maintained in Kashmir after the death of hardline separatist Syed Ali Shah Geelani, it not only refers to the changed situation in Kashmir, but it is also telling thatthe strategists of theJammu and KashmirPolice have learned lessons from the past experiences. Taking it forward.
No one knows better than the common Kashmiri what could have caused uproar in Kashmir over Geelani's death.The administration was aware of this.Four years ago, when someone spread the rumor of Geelani's death, shops in Kashmir were closed, stone-pelting took place at many places.The police handled the situation, but the situation returned to normal only when Geelani's family called the news of the death a rumour.
According to sources associated with the Jammu and Kashmir Police, the administration was constantly monitoring the health of the radical leader.Every day police officers and intelligence agencies would meet and discuss the situation arising in Kashmir on Geelani's death and the exercise to deal with them.Mock drills of emergency arrangements to maintain law and order were also conducted in many areas at intervals of a few days.
Strict instructions were given to all the outposts and station in-charges to continuously monitor the old terrorists and stone-pelters operating in their area.Now it is the result of the alertness of the Jammu and Kashmir Police administration that the situation was completely normal except for sporadic unconfirmed incidents.Only a few of his relatives arrived to attend the funeral.
Anti-national elements were sitting inwait: Taking lessons from the crowd and uproar gathered at the funeral of Pakistaniterrorists Abu Qasim andBurhan Wani, the ground network of intelligence agencies was continuously giving alerts and measures.Before the execution of Afzal Guru,violencehad erupted acrossKashmir despite the curfew,in view of the death of Geelani, the security forces had bridged the gaps even then.The kind of statement given by PakistanPrime MinisterImran Khanafter the death of Geelani, it can be inferred that anti-national elements were on the lookout to spoil the situation in Kashmir.
Police implemented roadmapas soon as the news of death came:As soon as the news of Geelani's death came late on Wednesday, the police implemented its already prepared roadmap.Deployment of police and paramilitary forces was started in all sensitive areas.Through the mosque committees and also the police officers themselves, through various means, urged the people to exercise restraint.Advised not to disturb the law and order situation.During this, no area was completely sealed, but only those areas where there was a possibility of uproar.Only BSNL internet service was restored with limited speed.Phone service also remained suspended.
So Geelani had lost his credibility at the last moment: Astate police official said that this whole incident has also proved that Geelani, on whose behest Kashmir used to be closed, was a common Kashmiri at the time of his death. I had lost my credibility.Otherwise, people would have definitely broken administrative restrictions to attend his funeral.The silence surrounding his funeral also seals the changing situation in Kashmir and the improving security scenario.The credit for this goes to the security agencies.
