***I am curious why kidnapping and killing two teenage sisters by militants did not raise as much hue and cry as the rape and killing in Shopian case where people in the valley were protesting.

Why not protest like that now?

While the author accepts that it was separatists who were protesting (and protesting violently) maybe he should give us his opinion of what the security apparatus should have done. Showered rose petals?

Is it also the author’s contention that because there are interlocutors involved and a political process underway that law and order should not be a criteria? Does he realise that there are more people in the valley who are fed up of these protestors, propoganda agents and abetters of violence and their mentors than they are of the security apparatu?. Besides, can the State just lay back and become a bystander to violence? He certainly seems to be suggesting so.

I dont where he is from but I would urge him to check the records of security forces of US and UK in places like Yemen/Malaysia/Northern ireland/Iraq/Afghanistan and then misuse the opportunity that he has of writing a blog.

They have raped more than 9000 women. They committed mass rape in a village called kunan poshpura. Thousands have been forcibly disappeared. There are mass graves in Kashmir, 9000 people in a single grave.
2 yrs back they raped and murdered 2 women in Shopian, and then used CBI to cover it up. The incidents as mentioned above are committed by Army, and the renegade millitants backed by the state. Army is committing atrocities on people, not on the criminals. Infact we have ample proof that Indian state has sheltered drug dealers, Criminals and sex rackets. We caught drug dealers who were trying to lure youth to drug abuse, but state police took them away and set them free. India’s hand are red with the blood of Kashmiris. We will never forgive the monster India for the crimes it has committed in Kashmir

Is it really the forces or the government itself responsible for killing over 100 people?? Look deeper to get the knowledge. How can you expect Indian military to go soft when incidents like the one you mentioned keep occurring from time to time.
