When DND News Agency asked social media participants who shared the video why did Indian Forces burn shops and foodstuff in his area (Budgam district), he said because of rage what do Kashmiris want freedom and because Indian Forces want to purge Kashmiri Muslims.
He wrote a message as:
“I wish I had an easy answer. There was a protest demonstration in the area.
Anyway, an eighteen month old baby girl Hiba Jan was hit by the pellets in south Kashmir. What could be the motivation?
A school principal Rizwan of Awantipora in south Kashmir was killed in police custody in Srinagar.
A lecturer named Shabir was killed in an Indian Army camp in Khrew in south Kashmir. An ATM guard Riyaz was killed in the heart of Srinagar by the Indian paramilitary CRPF personnel. Thousands of civilians including Tufail Mattoo, Wamiq Farooq, Sameer Rah, and other names and the nameless.
What could be the motivation? I don’t have easy answers. Perhaps a civilizational idea that Kashmiris are Kashmiris and majority happens to be from a particular community and with geographical proximity with Pakistan; to teach them a lesson, make them realise and submit that they are second class citizens, subjects and shouldn’t expect or demand fundamental human, political or economic rights. As JL Nehru told academic Balraj Puri at the time of PM Sheikh Abdullah’s arrest and unceremonious removal as Prime Minister of Jammu and Kashmir on August 9, 1953 that “ Democracy and morality can wait.” So in waiting list since”.
