The murder of a policeman, Saifullah Qadri in Soura area of Srinagar has been widely condemned. The shameless killers didn’t only kill the unarmed policeman but shot at his minor daughter who rushed to save her father. Thankfully, the girl survived. The incident indicates that how heartless the killers are who don’t spare even children. This is inhuman and barbaric. This is the worst kind of terrorism and thus people need to raise their voice against such crimes and criminals. From administration to political leaders, everyone has taken to social media sites to condemn the killing. Condemnation has become such a routine now that the very word has lost the relevance. While condemnations pour in, the cop killers are raoming freely and killing at will. The killing of unarmed cops, people from minority community, migrant labourers and panchas, sarpanchs, BDC and DDC members has become a norm here. Terrorists are targeting people for their religious affiliations, job choices and political ideologies. 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 need to gear up and identify the killers, arrest them so that they face the justice system and pay for their wrong doing. Though those who lost their lives will not come back neither the grief of their families could be lessened, but by making the killers to face the law of the land would help these families to get the much desired justice.

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 Qadri and injured his daughter have neither helped the society nor their own selves. They have not taken the life of one person but have devastated a family 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 – human – 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. The society has to wake up and raise its voice against the violence. The gunmen involved in these murders are the ones who have brought all kinds of miseries to the people of Kashmir. They have disturbed the social fabric here and created an atmosphere of insecurity all over. Such mindless and senseless murderers have no place in any civilized society and therefore should be named, shamed and isolated.
