Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 18: Despite the tall claims of the authorities that normalcy has returned to Jammu and Kashmir, as many as 23 leaders and workers of Bharatiya Janata party have been killed across the Union Territory during the past two years.
On Tuesday militants shot dead yet another BJP leader Javid Ahmad Dar son of Mohammad Badullag Dar resident of Brazloo Jagir in south Kashmir. He was fired upon outside his residence.
According to the official data in the past one year, seven BJP workers were killed in Kulgam district alone. In the last 10 days, four persons, including a minor son of a BJP leader, were killed in three separate attacks on BJP workers and leaders in J&K.
On August 12, a two-year-old child was killed while six others were injured after a grenade was lobbed towards the house of BJP Mandal president Jasbir Singh in Rajouri town.
On August 9, BJP Kisaan Morcha district president Kulgam Ghulam Rasool and his wife Jawhara Banoo who was also a Panch and affiliated with BJP belonging to Redwani Kulgam, were killed by militants in Lal Chowk Anantnag.
On June 2 , BJP leader and president MC Tral Rakesh Pandita was killed by militants in Tral. Nine BJP leaders and workers were killed in four months across Kashmir.
An observer while talking to Early Times said, “Terrorists are continuing to strike at will, the security situation continues to be grim. The threat perception is high. Pakistan is sending militants into J&K and no stone is being left unturned to terrorize the people. Grass root workers of the BJP have become soft targets and sitting ducks. Actions of ultras have punctured normalcy claims.”
He said, “The grenade attacks at crowded place in Kashmir have returned. Killings of unarmed policemen have created ripples. Despite these happenings and cold blooded murders becoming an order of the day , the authorities are claiming that all is well and there is nothing to worry about.”
