How separatists shut down schools in Kashmir but send own kids abroad to study

Remember, hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani recently said that the schools run by Indian Army are weaning the generation next away from their religion and culture. It could be noted that a large number of children from civilian areas in the valley attend the army-run schools. While most schools remained closed for six months due to unrest, army schools functioned normally.

“We are losing our next generation. We should never send our youth to these institutions. We need to see what sort of education these institutions are imparting to our children,” Geelani had said.

Year in and year out, the separatist leaders have been instigating the youth of Kashmir to leave their studies, come out on the roads and join the stone pelting for a “bigger cause”.

But in a stark dichotomy, this ANI report shows that how kin of these separatist leaders have got the best education, settled abroad and leading a life of peace, safety and luxury far away from the counter currents of stone pelting. Here is the list:

  1. Nayeem Geelani, son of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, is a doctor in Rawalpandi, Pakistan. Nayeem’s son Zahoor is working as a crew member at private airline. Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s daughter is a teacher in Jeddah and her husband is an engineer.
  2. The son of Mohammed Ashraf Sehrai, general secretary of the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat (TeH), the Geelani faction of Hurriyat – is a computer engineer in Dubai.
  3. Rabia Farooq, sister of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq – chairman of the Awami Action Committee of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference – is a doctor who lives in London.
  4. Separatist leader Ghulam Muhmaad Sumzi’s son Jugnu completed his management degree in Delhi.
  5. Rooma Maqbool, the son of Farida Behanjee – the patron of Jammu and Kashmir Mass Movement – lives and works as a medical practitioner in South Africa.
  6. Head of the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Liberation Party Hashim Qureshi’s sons Iqbal and Bilal live in London.
  7. Spokesman for the Geelani faction of Hurriyat Ayaz Akbar’s son Sarwar Yaqub is a management student in Pune.
  8. Two sons of Abdul Aziz Dar, another prominent leader of the Geelani faction – Umer Dar and Adil Dar – are studying in Pakistan.
  9. Mariyam Andrabi, sister of Asiya Andrabi – head of the women separatist organisation Dukhtran-e-Millat – lives in Malaysia along with her family. Asiya wanted to send her elder son to Malaysia for further studies, but he was reportedly denied a passport. Asiya’s elder son Mohammed Bin Qasim, who pursued Bachelors of Information Technology at Islamic University of Malaysia, is in Australia for his further studies.
