Normalcy balloon punctured
10/9/2021 12:08:17 AM

Recent civilian killings in Kashmir have terrified the members of minority communities in the Valley. There is fear as well as the outrage over the cold blooded murders of civilians that were carried out by ultras during the recent days.
People are asking questions is this the normalcy that they were talking about. After the recent spate of killings the normalcy balloon has been punctured.
National Conference president Dr Farooq Abdullah and other politicians are comparing the present situation in Kashmir with 1990. Dr Abdullah recently stated that J&K has become a place for photo opportunities and nothing is happening on the ground.
A few Kashmiri Pandits who have returned to the Valley in the recent past and are living in makeshift accommodations are terrified and have no idea about what destiny has in store for them. If the situation keeps on deteriorating they will be left with no option other than leaving Kashmir again.
People sitting across the Line of Control (LoC) have become active once again as they are finding it hard to believe that they have lost the proxy war which they fought for the past three decades. The gun toting ultras are killing civilians, according to their will, and are once again targeting the members of the minority community. The pattern is the same which they followed in 1990.
The helmsmen need to understand that they cannot go on beating the trumpet about everything being hunky-dory in Kashmir. Peace cannot come by just laying foundation stones and calling the Bollywood stars to the Valley.
Lot more needs to be done to infuse the sense of security among the people.
If the ultras are not reined in, all the good work that has been done during the past two years would go in vain. J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha has stated that every drop of blood will be avenged. But the government needs to sit back and think about how all of the sudden ultras have appeared in Srinagar city, which was declared as a militancy free area, not long ago. There is a huge difference between projecting normalcy and establishing normalcy.
There is outrage against the civilian killings across the country as people are aware of the fact that Pakistan is behind everything. Voices to teach Pakistan a lesson are becoming shriller as the militants sponsored by it are out to unleash terror once again.
