Pulwama paralysed: How a hoarding managed to bring an entire town to a standstill

The roads leading to Pulwama town are deserted. People walk in groups. In a sudden rage, a group of protesters arrives in the middle of road from nowhere, forcibly stopping vehicles. If the passengers inside try to reason, the young protesters break loose. Within minutes, the police arrives and clashes start. #Jammu and Kashmir #NewsTracker #Hurriyat Conference #PDP #Syed Ali Geelani #Pulwama

On New Year's Eve in 2014, much before the PDP formed an alliance with the BJP to come to power in Jammu and Kashmir, Abdul Gani Bhat, one of the top-rung Hurriyat leaders, had a late night meeting with the PDP patron, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, at his upscale Gupkar residence in Srinagar. #Jammu and Kashmir #NewsTracker #Atal Bihari Vajpayee #Mehbooba Mufti #Hurriyat Conference #Mirwaiz Umer Farooq #PDP-BJP alliance

Despite Modi-Sharif meeting at COP21, India-Pakistan talks will be non-starter if not thought out clearly

Much is being read into the short meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Paris. The brief meeting led to speculations about a more structured dialogue later. But the Ministry of Foreign Affairs were at pains to describe the meeting as one-off unplanned tête-à-tête. #Jammu and Kashmir #Narendra Modi #CriticalPoint #Nawaz Sharif #Hurriyat Conference #India Pakistan relations #Abdul Basit #separatists

Frequent hartals making Hurriyat unpopular: Kashmir separatists look for alternate means to be heard

Hartals and protest calendars are losing traction among the masses of Kashmir. And frequent shutdown calls are only alienating them from the people they want to address. Hurriyat leaders in Kashmir have woken up to the reality rather late. #NewsTracker #Pervez Musharraf #protest #Mirwaiz Umar Farooq #Hurriyat Conference #Hartal #Kashmir separatists
