SRINAGAR, KASHMIR: There is something seriously wrong when educated Kashmiri youths - many with college degrees, successful academic careers and thriving businesses - give it all up to become professional stone-pelters. It beggars disbelief that they would knowingly allow themselves to be manipulated by their Pak Terror-masters in the name of "freedom-fighting".
Is it religious guilt; social and cultural brain-washing; an inability to recognize right from wrong? Just how gullible and easily influenced they are can be seen in the sudden violent turn the Kashmir Valley has taken.
Dimwitted young men who should be focusing on education to improve their lot in life are instead allowing senile old fools with diminished grey cells to brainwash them into becoming foot-soldiers and Pakistani proxies all in the name of a doomed cause.
But now these foolish men have now come to realize that they were hoodwinked into giving up their lives to fight Pak's proxy war in Kashmir with nothing to show for it but to keep the Kashmir pot on a slow boil.
Yesterday as hardliner separatist geriatrics once again called for another "shutdown" the All-Kashmir Stone-pelters Association turned on their 'mentors' in anger.
"We were told by our Pak Army handlers that we would be paid 10 rupees for each stone pelted. I gave up my successful business of pirated videos to join the cause but I have not received a single coin", said AhvBinhad Mohammed.
His friend Dildo Ahmed agreed: "Just between 2 of us we have pelted over a thousand stones injuring at least 20 cops.
"We have been cheated by our crooked Pak handlers. We insist that the Indian Govt and the United Nations help us get our stone-pelter overdue wages from Pak.
"Otherwise we will be forced to give Pak a befitting [sic] reply for trying to befool [sic] us"
