16 days to justice - Ultimatum


16
  

     Days to Justice
I write this post with a heavy heart. No words can express the anger, rage and sadness that I feel about the murders by the Indian army yesterday. No words can also express how helpless Kashmiris feel at the moment. Sopur is under curfew so people don't even have the liberty to grieve.

How barbaric, uncivilized and fanatic islamist thinking of ours is it to demand that the RR army barbarians who murdered those young Kashmiris be arrested and brought to justice?

I am willing to give Omar Abdullah the benefit of the doubt that he sincerely will bring the murderers to justice.

In loss for words myself I looked around to read how others expressed their grief:

Editorial in GK
"...
There have not been any major or minor militant incidents of any consequences after the new government took over. It would not be an overstatement to say that the situation in the state is near normal. But what has been surprising that this normalcy is yet to be accepted by law and order authorities. Notwithstanding there is no move from the government for consolidating this near-normal situation by reducing the troops-civilian ratio in cities, towns and urban areas and removing barracks and bunkers from the civilian areas calm seems returning faster to the state. The incident at Sopore and other places killing innocent unarmed people for a sport suggest that the directions of the new government are yet to be recognized as command by the security agencies in the state...."

The editor further elaborates
"...The murder of innocent in Sopore, Bandipora and Kupwara constrains one to believe that some of the security agencies in the state are wittingly or unwittingly working as agent provocateurs. Such incidents can trigger a mob fury thereby causing very serious law and order situation that can undo whatever good done after majority of militant organizations have called unilateral undeclared ceasefire. Of course, the government immediately ordered an administrative inquiry into these three incidents but it is a hard reality that the administrative inquires hold no credibility. There is hardly any administrative inquiry commission that has published its findings or the government having made action taken on any inquiry reports public. Most of the administrative inquires ordered have been cosmetic..." (click here to read full article)

This would be a good reality check for the current government that people are well aware of the deceptive methods employed by them to make a bad incident go away by calling for these deceptive inquiries.

This is what Omar Abdullah had to say:

"....The 38-year-old Chief Minister said he had ordered a magisterial enquiry into the Sopore incident which would be completed within a fortnight's time. "Whatever comes out in the report will be implemented at the earliest and those guilty will be punished," Omar said, adding that he was personally monitoring the case..." (source: The Hindu)

Rising Kashmir reported that the CM has set a time frame of 15 days for the submission of this "magesterial" report.

"...the chief minister ordered magisterial inquiry into the incident with instructions that the Inquiry Officer will submit report within 15 days. He assured that exemplary punishment will be given to those found guilty...." (source: Rising Kashmir)

I am willing to give him 16 days to present the killers before the Kashmiri court of law to face murder charges. Failing which, even the ancients have preached that the pen is mightier than the sword.

  1. Unless an until all leaders of Kashmir,irrespective of their ideologies don't revere the sacrifices rendered by the people of our land,they don't qualify to lead us!We need to to build a structure that can restore the dignity of Human rights.Truth commissions are one such example.The fact is that we are fighting a massive stubborn power like India and we need a steadfast sincere leadership to do that!

    These people are forerunners in damaging our social fabric.80,000 people didn't die for them.When 9 lakh people got together in a strip of land last summer demanding independence,these cowards were were sitting in their houses without throwing up.Why do we trust them?We have no reason to expect miracles from them.

    And Mr.Tanvir Sadiq ,you have no guts to give some exchanges to my "unapproved" comments at your blog.I am waiting!
