Umar Fayaz’s killing has harmed Kashmir cause


Any resistance or struggle needs fuel to survive else it ceases to bear fruits. In the present scenario, Kashmir has reached  a stage where only those people who get hefty bucks in their accounts on first day of every month want Kashmir to remain burning while as a helpless and poor labourer who in some cases has to feed five unmarried daughters wants peace to prevail so that her daughters are not forced to tread on wrong path for their survival.

In the pursuit of Azadi you cannot be at war with your own people and snatch their right to life bestowed to them by the Allah Almighty.

If the affluent ones really aspire for the final settlement of Kashmir issue, they should at a minimum reserve 20 percent of their savings for those who are starving due to lack of resources so that they don’t get lethargic and lose interest in Kashmir solution.

Moreover, we have no right to impose our ideology on others and force them to follow our path. You cannot take anyone on your track forcibly. Islam doesn’t allow such acts.

Recently there were a number of killings in Kashmir based on their affiliations with different groups or organisations and the recent one is the killing of an Army Officer Umar Fayaz of Kulgam. Who and why he was killed is yet to be answered but the immediate fallout is that these incidents cause more harm to Kashmir cause than help it.

May good sense prevail.
