One more innocent murdered
Another Kashmiri Pandit was killed by terrorists on Saturday in a Shopian village. Puran Krishan Bhat was attacked near his residence in the Chowdhary Gund area of the south Kashmir district. He was rushed to Shopian hospital where doctors declared him dead. The killing has been condemned widely. The very fact that the slain was a protected person having police guard at his place, necessitates that the killing is probed thoroughly and any lapses are identified and dealt with.
That said, in Bhat’s death, one more Kashmiri family has lost a dear one. This is inhuman. This is the worst kind of terrorism and thus people need to raise their voice against such crimes and criminals. The terrorists have been targeting people from minority communities, migrant labourers (irrespective of their faith) and off duty unarmed Jammu and Kashmir Police personnel. 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 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 getting them 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 Bhat have neither helped the society nor their own selves. They have not taken the life of one person but 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 – 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. 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.
