While strongly condemning the killing of a youth in security forces firing in Pulwama area of south Kashmir and killing of three more youth at the hands of ‘unidentified gunmen’ in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district, State Secretary CPI(M) Ghulam Nabi Malik, on Tuesday questioned how long the blood of civilians will continue to flow in Kashmir?
The reckless killing of civilians at the hands of both the parties involved in the conflict continues unabated. I have no words to condemn these killings as mere condemnations every time isn’t enough. Condemnation and ordering a probe after every killing is not a solution to the problem, but time has come when political leadership rising above the ideological difference should come together to stop these killings.
While expressing solidarity with the bereaved families, he demanded an immediate end to the civilian killings in the Valley. Killing of civilians can never be solution to any problem.
Whether a civilian is killed by the bullet from one side or the other side, it is loss of precious human life. Whose ‘cause’ is fulfilled by the killings of civilians? Unfortunately, it is a Kashmiri who is getting killed every day.
