Can any Kashmiris give us some insight into the arrest of prominent women including the sister & a daughter of Farooq Abdullah & the sister of Omar Abdullah for protesting? Quite frankly, we aren’t used to seeing images of such well-heeled protesters & are more accustomed to seeing working class women protesting. Is it cynicism to ask if the protest was primarily political grandstanding to help resuscitate the image of collaborators like Omar Abdullah & Mehbooba Mufti into moderate leaders?
