Terrorism again in Kashmir

Since the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, there has been a significant reduction in political upheaval and terrorist incidents, but in the last few weeks, terrorism has gained momentum again. The murder of Jammu teacher Rajnibala, who was teaching in a school in the Kashmir Valley, has created a storm in Kashmir. Thousands of minority Hindu workers from Kashmir have taken to the streets and are demanding the Lieutenant Governor to shift them outside the Valley, or else they will take the route of mass exodus. Their anger is natural but there are many practical difficulties in implementing their demand. One question here is whether terrorists are killing only Hindu Pandits? It is true that the number of Hindu Pandits is more among those who died, because on the one hand they are influential, outspoken and their numbers are also more, but Rajnibala was not a Pandit. She was a Dalit.

Apart from this, if we dig a little deeper, we will know that so far this year, 13 people have been killed by terrorists, among them four were police personnel, three were Hindus and six were Muslims. Apart from the policemen among these Muslims, there were also panch, sarpanch and a female TV artist. It means to say that terrorists are the enemy of all. They are full of hatred and pride. They consider killing those they hate as their religion. Do they not know that they do this misdemeanor in the name of Islam and because of their doing, Islam keeps getting maligned all over the world. Due to the kindness of such violent extremists, today Pakistan and Afghanistan are becoming absolutely dilapidated. One of the reasons for the increase in terrorist attacks in Kashmir in the last few weeks seems to be that these terrorists do not want the signs of improvement in Indo-Pak relations to be allowed to succeed. Here, ever since the government of Shahbaz Sharif was formed, the attitude of the leaders of both the countries is showing constructive.

Both the countries are adhering to the ceasefire agreement on the border and recently the meeting of officials of both the countries was held in Delhi to settle the Indus-Water dispute. Traders of Pakistan are also urging to open closed mutual trade. All these facts are quite disappointing for terrorists. That’s why they are firing indiscriminately. Their violence has been strongly condemned by all Kashmiri leaders and Lieutenant Governor Manoj Singha has also announced to punish the terrorist killers in harsh words soon. Do these terrorists not understand that even if they continue to shed blood of people like this for a thousand years, they will not be able to achieve their goal and the number of innocent people they kill every year, many times more terrorists than that. are killed. This thing should also be understood by those Pakistani people who encourage terrorism.
