SRINAGAR: MLA Shopian Adv Mohammad Yousuf Bhat has expressed anguish over the loss of civilian lives in Pahnoo Shopian saying “every civilian killing, notwithstanding how erroneously made, has the tendency of vitiating the peaceful atmosphere”.
“When your heart bleeds and you are emotionally amputated, no condemnation is enough. I have no words to condemn these civilian killings as mere condemnation, every time a civilian is killed, is not enough and no circumstances can justify these civilian killings,” Bhat said in a statement.
He said the law enforcing agencies are not learning any lessons from previous such experiences. “Such reckless killings have in the past inflamed the situation and if immediately such type of incidents are not stopped, there is apprehension that situation in the valley may turn ugly again,” he said.
Expressing solidarity with the bereaved families, MLA Shopian demanded that a judicial enquiry be ordered to look into the circumstances under which such killings have taken place and the culprits of this heinous crime are booked and brought to justice.
