Kashmiris Protest After Amarnath Massacre (But not for the massacred Yatris)

On 10th July, at 8:20PM, Hindu Yatris were attacked by Jihadis in Kashmir, killing 8 of them.  There were no street protests reported on any TV channel.  None of the political parties of Kashmir asked for a bandh in the Valley (though, very cleverly, they asked for it in Hindu majority Jammu, even though the Jihadi attack has happened in the valley).  Yet, some media heads saw great optimism in the reaction of Kashmiris.

The next day, 3 Jihadis were killed in Budgam. One of these was Sajad Gilkar—who is suspected of being one of the instigators of the lynching of Police Officer Ayub Pandith outside the main mosque in Srinagar.

Therefore, on July 12th  Kashmiris were out doing what they do best—PROTEST!

Indeed, for those who wish to see, there was a sinister development—for the first time, the body of the slain Jihadi was draped in the flag of ISIS.  Here is the picture (reported in Ananda Bazar Patrika).

So, as you can see, to an objective viewer, the Amarnath massacre did not cause any backlash against Jihadi terror in Kashmir, as has been suggested by some.  Instead, things have only gotten worse.

Just ask yourself: looking at the crowds at the Jihadi funeral, does it seem like any one of them could care about massacred Hindu yatris? They are raising slogans for Zakir Musa (who wants an ISIS-like Caliphate in Kashmir), for Azaadi, etc.  These are hardcore Islamists.  And there are hundreds of them at this funeral.  At others, we have seen tens of thousands.

Readers can judge for themselves where the sympathies of Kashmiris lie—with Hindu yatris, or with these Jihadi killers.

Do not believe in birth-based "caste" but rather varna based on swadharma and swabhava, and personal commitment to that varna's dharmas. I don't judge people by the religion they profess: every human being should be treated with equal dignity. At the same time, I don't judge a religion by the people I know who profess it. A religion, like any doctrine, should be subjected to critical examination using facts and reason.

    This is very concerning. Shows how far the ground truth is from the media-created beast called “Kashmiriyat.”

    Kashmiri Muslims are nothing but terrorists, they killed and massacred Kashmiri Pandits with the help of Pakistanis and Mujahedeen so that they can rule the place and don’t have share it with Hindus, to create an Islamic State to be precise. Moreover they knew that with the help of Article 307 and 35A nobody can get in their kingdom which our beloved Nehru illegally gifted to them. It makes my heart bleed to see thousands of our army dies every year by protecting the border and on the other hand the Kashmiris aid, support and join the terrorists and resort to stone pelting and even kill the jawans. It is high time that all the discriminating laws are totally abolished, which will ensure the end of the Jihadi terror in Kashmir. And it is only fair that each every Kashmiri Muslims is either imprisoned for life or gunned down for their treacherous anti-national activity for past 70 years.
