Mediapersons and Left liberals whose hearts bleed for terrorists like Burhan Wani and separatists have always chosen to ignore the plight of peace-loving, non-violent Kashmiri Pandits. Whenever there is unrest in Kashmir, lives of the minority Pandits living in the Valley are at peril. But seldom will their plight or distress become a cause of concern for the pseudo-secularists.
Posters threatening Pandits have been spotted near the transit accommodations for government employees in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district asking them to leave the Valley or face the music.
The posters have been issued by little known Lashkar-e-Islam, the posters have asked “all migrants/RSS agents to leave Kashmir or face death.”
“No space for Kashmiri Pandits who want another Israel in Kashmir to kill Kashmiri Muslim.”
Panun Kashmir leader and film maker Ashok Pandit shared the posters on Twitter which evoked huge reactions. Pandit tweeted: “message for all the pseudo liberals, white-collared terrorists & other pimps of terrorists.”
While police confirmed the presence of the posters in the area, the SP in charge of Pulwama, Rayees Mohammad Bhat said it could be the handiwork of miscreants.
“We also got the information about presence of a few posters in the area but we believe it is some miscreants who want to create fear among the minority community,’’ Bhat said.
Meanwhile, terrorist outfit Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) blamed it on “Indian agencies to portray Kashmir’s freedom struggle as communal”.
The outfit distanced itself from the posters, issued under the name of Lashkar-e-Islam.
In a statement mailed to media organizations in Kashmir, deputy chief of HM, Saifullah Khalid, claimed “Indian agencies are once again trying to play Pandit card to show that our freedom struggle is ‘terrorism and communalism’.
