The murder of two police men in Baghat area of Srinagar need to be condemned by one and all. Two cops, identified as Constable Suhail Ahmad and SgCt Mohammad Yousuf were critically wounded when some gunman opened fire on them in the area. Both succumbed to their injuries. Two Kashmiri families have lost their bread earners. Parents have lost their children, children their fathers. This is inhuman. This is the worst kind of terrorism and thus people need to raise their voice against such crimes and criminals. The other day, son of the owner of Krishna Dhaba, a popular eatery near Sonwar was shot at. Thankfully he survived the attack and is recovering at a local hospital. These attacks are indicative of only one reality – those behind these attacks can never be friends of the people of Jammu and Kashmir. They are the enemies and therefore should be named and shamed. Police has done a great job by identifying and arresting the three persons responsible for Krishna Dhaba attack within 24 hours. Hopefully, those involved in Baghat attack too would be identified and brought to book.

Those who are on this killing spree are trying to drag Kashmir back to the dirty violence. It is share madness and nobody can approve such crimes. If killing people for political and ideological differences becomes a norm then everyone would be hunting for everyone. The world will become a murderous field and no one will have any safety and security. Those who have killed these two policemen have neither helped the society nor their own selves. They have not taken the lives of two men but devastated two families and earned for themselves the hellfire hereafter.

Violence has no religion, it has no ethics or principles. It can only kill and destroy. Those who are indulging in violence or propagating violent ideologies need to understand that Allah has not created this world for death and destruction. He created a special specie – humans – with the intension that this specie will beautify his world with love and compassion. The murderers are brazenly and shamelessly trying to negate Allah’s plan. Fact of the matter is that they will never succeed in their designs.

Kashmir society, as a whole, need to wake up and understand the negative and disastrous impact of violence. Since 1990, Kashmiris have suffered a lot. Thousands have fallen victim to blind violence. The Valley, which was known to be paradise on earth, has been turned into a land of graveyards. Time has come that people open up, speak up and denounce every killing no matter what the killed ones political ideology has been. This bloodshed has to stop, the sooner the better for those living here.
