Srinagar: In the late hours on 31st March 2018 security forces laid siege in Shopian and Anantnag districts. By Sunday morning the death
toll in the encounter that ensued rose to 20, it included three Army personnel and four civilians. Whichever way the death toll is raising, Kashmiriyat is the real victim.

It may be noted that separatist forces including media are trying to rake up the issue resulting
in more Kashmiri blood being spilled for their own benefit. Hurriyat leaders started rumor mongering and this resulted in stone pelting leading to further loss of life. Imagine an innocent Kashmiri family traveling around in Kashmir to attend various necessities
being brutally attacked by stone pelters for no fault of theirs.
Innocents Victimised in
In a shocking incident two people were injured when their Maruti car met with an accident on Baramulla Handwara highway
near Udipora Kralgund in Handwara outskirts after the driver lost control of the vehicle. It happened after some unruly youth reportedly pelted stones at the moving car. Police has registered a case to investigate the incident.
Crashed car near Baramulla
Few passengers were also injured in Sopore outskirts after protesters reportedly pelted stones on a vehicle
in which they were traveling in at Wadoora, Sopore. However, these incidents have not been reported by many newspapers. Journalists have already taken sides and have been neglecting reporting of events that are consequences of Hurriyat’s instigations.
Security forces showing patience to save Kashmiriyat
In a new twist to the usual policy of hard hitting the terrorists showed utmost caution and patience to save a Kashmiri life. Indian security forces for quite some time have been trying
to persuade local militants to shun away from militancy. In a particular event in Dialgam the commander even narrated verses from Holy Quran and advised the trapped terrorist that whatever he was doing was against the teachings of Islam. The conversation continued
for over 30 minutes during which Khanday got agitated and abusive. Security forces even brought in mother and father of Khanday to persuade him into surrender to save his life. But when he declined finally a fire assault had to be launched after six hours
of persuasion and a precious young Kashmiri life was lost.
Police establishing baricades
is real victim
In all the power play of both India and Pakistan Kashmiriyat is the real victim. Kashmir was a place where peace
and religious tolerance was the way of life. Today intolerance is being taught to the youths in various religious schools. Instead of Kashmiri way of life with Sufism, Wahhabism is being taught with no tolerance for others. Kashmiri people have to finally
decide what they have to follow. In many parts of the world, Muslims took to arms to spread the word of God as they
were not allowed to speak. In countries like India they were freely allowed to talk so why take arms? Where is the threat to Islam which these Hurriyat leaders are preaching? This is the question no separatist leader is ready to answer.
