Focus on security, events can wait
10/12/2021 12:03:54 AM
After the recent spate of killings of members of minority community members in Kashmir, many people are of the opinion that the J & K Government has failed to provide adequate security to nationalist people in the Valley.
Last week seven persons, including three Hindus and a Sikh, were shot dead by the militants in Kashmir. These cold blooded murders punctured the normalcy claims and brought to fore the threat which every nationalist person in Kashmir faces.
Protests against the killings are being staged in Srinagar and Jammu and protesters are accusing the government of turning migrant employees into scapegoats. They are asking relevant questions and need answers. During the past few days many Kashmiri Pandits have fled the Valley due to fear psychosis. Ones who have returned to Jammu are stating that the situation is like 1990s whether the government agrees or not. The normalcy balloon has been punctured.
It appears that the people handling the J&K administration are inexperienced and seem unaware of the fact that this place has been witnessing turmoil for the past three decades and the country sponsoring violence is a hostile neighbor which cannot remain in peace.
The government instead of trumpeting about the normalcy claims should first deal with the militants and their supporters who don’t want the people of J&K to live in peace. Things are not hunky-dory in Kashmir, whoever comes forward and announces that he is a nationalist he is put on a hit list. In 1990 the minorities were vulnerable and they continue to be so even in 2021. Kashmiri Pandits and other members of the minority communities are being targeted to send a message that no one is safe and anyone can be hit.
The helmsmen should realize that organizing cultural shows and other events are no signs of normalcy. Normalcy will come when militants won’t strike at will. Instead of being in a hurry to send Kashmiri Pandits back to the Valley the government should focus on providing them with a secure environment. Mere rhetoric and slogans won’t help anyone’s cause.
There are many areas on which the government needs to focus. J&K is far from being normal and the recent killings have proven it beyond doubt that Pakistan won’t let anyone stay in peace, so everyone needs to be ready to thwart the nefarious designs of the unruly neighbour.
