SRINAGAR, Aug 22: At a time when the whole Muslim world was rejoicing with Eid celebrations four families in South Kashmir were left in a state of mourning since their dear ones got killed in separate militancy related incidents.
Among the killed three belonged to Pulwama district with the fourth one being a resident of Kulgam. The killings sent shock waves among the people with most of them questioning the same since the day coincided with the festival of Eid-ul-Azha.
Reports said that bullet riddled body of a Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) leader was recovered from Litter area in Pulwama in the wee hours today. The BJP worker identified as Shabir Ahmad Bhat was abducted by suspected militants last evening following which he was killed.
A resident of Pathan village in Pulwama, Shabir was actively involved with BJP and was looking after the IT as well as Social Media cell of the party in the Pulwama district. His body was recovered from the Litter Rakh village that is 10 kilometers away from his native village.
It has been learnt that the family members of Shabir approached the police when they came to know that he has been abducted by the militants. Later on the police received information that a body was lying in Rakh Litter. As the police party reached there it came to the fore that Shabir has been killed.
Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) condemned the killing of Shabir and termed the incident as highly painful, undemocratic and barbaric. The party said that Shabir was Constituency President & IT Social Media in-charge Pulwama. The party said that militants must realize that they cannot stop the youth of the valley from choosing a better future for themselves.
BJP State President Ravinder Raina said that the killers of Shabir have no religion and respect for Eid ul Azha as this festival spreads love and peace not hatred.
State General Secretary (Org) Ashok Kaul said that while everybody is busy with Eid celebrations, Bhat's family in Pulwama is in a state of shock and grief crying for their beloved. He demanded strict action against such 'ill' elements that are spoiling peace in valley and killing 'innocent' people on regular intervals.
In the morning militants in Kulgam fired at constable Fayaz Ahmed Shah son of Abdul Rehman Shah who was on leave and had gone to offer Eid prayer. He died on spot. Fayaz was aged about 34 years and was a resident of Zazripora-Kulgam. He is survived by two minor daughters aged five and two years, wife and an aged mother.
