Condemnations and inquiries have neither delivered justice: PDP Legislator

Condemning the killing of civilians in Shopian, PDP leader, and MLC Zaffar Iqbal Manhas has said such recurrent incidents should force the powers-that-be to do some soul-searching and face the reality that Jammu & Kashmir is an issue which calls for a solution to prevent further loss of lives.

In a statement expressing his deep anguish over the recent spurt of civilian killings in Kashmir, Manhas said that the standard response by the mainstream politicians and fiery speeches and rhetoric by non-state politicians over these heart-wrenching killings of young boys will lead us nowhere because such ‘stereotyped’ condemnations and inquiries have neither delivered justice nor stopped the killing cycle.

“These inquiries and assurances have not prevented devouring of young lives; the recurrent incidents should make the powers-that-be do some soul-searching, shun ostrich-like self-delusions and face the reality that J&K is a political issue which has to be solved on a political table through dialogue with the people of the State,” Manhas said, adding that viewing the popular resentment in Kashmir through law and order prism has proved to be counter-productive and has further complicated the situation on the ground.

He said no sane person will endorse or encourage the violence, however, you can’t stop these unfortunate happenings merely through the barrel of the gun.And unfortunately, there is no sincere political forward movement in right earnest, though there is a lot of activity going on under one or the other banner.
