After Pakistani blog against him, attempts to kill Babar Qadri

Early Times Report
Srinagar, July 8: A few days after a Pakistani blog threatened advocate, Syed Babar Qadri, a prominent civil society face and lawyer, who also appears on TV debates, unidentified gunmen tried to eliminate him on Saturday evening but he escaped the bid on his life. The police have filed a case.
The family said at around 9:00 PM, some youth travelling in a white car intercepted Babar's car near his Hawal residence here forcing the vehicle to stop.
"Two youth came out of the other car and rushed towards Babar's vehicle opening the driver's door in an attempt to shoot him," the family said.
But the moment, one of the suspect assailants, believed to be carrying pistol, asked the other one to "hit him", the assailant-duo found that it was not Babar in the car.
The family said the car was being driven by Babar's younger brother.
As the fate had it, Babar had left his home an hour earlier in brother's vehicle as his own vehicle was low on fuel that time.
The family said Babar was scheduled to leave his home at around 8:30 PM to participate in a news debate at 9:00 PM but that he left his home an hour early to meet his journalist friend in the wake of "threat to life and police failure to take remedial measures."
Some days ago, two venomous blogs had appeared against Babar, from a website, which Jammu and Kashmir Police claim is run by Pakistani militants.
A few months ago, the same blog, which is now running hate campaign against Babar, had posted venomous content against journalist Syed Shujaat Bukhari, who was subsequently killed outside his office by unidentified gunmen on June 14.
But his family said police has been silent on threat to Babar's life. "Luck favored him otherwise he would have been killed. The callousness of police towards threat to his life has made him a sitting duck and we don't know when he will be killed in so much of insecurity," his visibly upset family complained.
When contacted a senior police official said police has filed an FIR and investigations are underway.
