Too Little Too Late

Despite the talk of chemistry between the two leaders and Modi’s hype that his ‘New India’ and Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ have met in a cordial bond. What was achieved was too little too late. The talk of fighting global terrorism has not been followed up by any concrete agreement. Even the designation of dreaded Syed Salahuddin  of Hizbul Mujahideen as ‘global terrorist’ is late by at least 25 years. As one senior political observer put it is like shutting the stable after the horse has bolted. The US move would have been more useful and effective had it come before the wily terrorist had his outfit Hizbul turned into Pakistan’s catspaw in Kashmir. Now Salahuddin is not in command of the terrorists. The young Mujahideen are led by Zakir ‘Musa’ who has established links with alQaeda and a recently formed outfit called Kashmir Taliban. After Burbank Vani was eliminated by security forces in the Kashmir valley, Zakir was made divisional commander of Hizbul Mujahideen. Burhan  Vani was killed in June last year. The scene in Kashmir has undergone a lot of change since then. The young boys and girls who are pelting stones on police and army are routing not just to azadi but to a Shariat-based Islamic regime.  More: Hizbul Mujahiddin Chief Syed Salahuddin Designated As Global Terrorist

US President Donald Trump talks about the suicide by farmers and said the prime minister has to take note of it.
