Gen next: Pappu Abdullah joins Kashmir politics

After Sheikh, Farooq and Omar failed, the Abdullah family has fielded its latest member -- Omar Abdullah’s 11 year old son Pappu Abdullah. Pappu will be heading the State Advisory Council, a quasi-government body that advises the state government on key issues like administration, finance, economy and development. The body is currently headed by Farooq Abdullah, who will be resigning on Friday to make way for the family scion.

Pappu Abdullah is no stranger to politics. Known among his classmates as Pappu mobile, he always used to threaten to leave school at the drop of a hat. He has changed schools extensively (thats why the nick name) and is also known for lashing out at his father’s critics using colorful language. “After Omar started fumbling, the time had come to induct fresh blood. Since Abdullah family firmly believes in dynastic politics, they decided to induct Pappu who has just finished ten years on planet earth,” a source close to the family told Humor Unplugged.

Pappu Abdullah will assume his post on Monday in a colorful ceremony at an undisclosed location. Security for the event is expected to be tight and the state government has asked cops to keep a strict eye on people who buy shoes in bulk. Pakistani separatist Syed Shah Geelani has meanwhile condemned the decision and asked people to work on weekends and strike on weekdays to register their protest against the decision. No sooner had he said this, Geelani was thrashed by an angry flash mob that had gathered there. “Owwwww” that was Geelani’s last tweet.
