The killing of the teachers took the number of civilians killed in the Kashmir Valley in the last five days to seven, including four from the valley’s minority communities.
This is an attempt to create an atmosphere of fear and to give it a communal colour so as to damage the communal harmony in Kashmir.
In a horrific attack in Jammu and Kashmir two school teachers were shot dead by terrorists on Thursday. The terrorist attack took place in Eidgah Sangam, a downtown area of Srinagar where the two teachers were dragged from the classroom and shot dead by the terrorists.
The victims – Satinder Kaur and teacher Deepak Chand were both residents of Allochi bagh. The heinous attack took place two days after terrorists had killed three other civilians, including a prominent Kashmiri Pandit Makhan Lal Bindroo .
This comes as yet another attack in recent days. The Resistance Front (TRF), an offshoot of Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba too has threatened and warned that minorities and other locals will be targeted.
There is a sense of fear among minorities, few days back a Kashmiri Pandit was killed and yesterday again a Sikh and Kashmiri Pandit has been killed.
People are saying that everyone is getting killed in Kashmir which is true, even Muslims are getting killed they are being targeted for being patriotic Indians but here if you look then the principal and teacher did not follow any narrative, they were just professionals teaching kids so that they have a brighter future.
Now these people were killed to pass a certain message to everyone in the country that if you come to Kashmir we will kill you and I think we are sending a wrong message to Kashmir.
The way govt is trying to bring back the Kashmiri Pandits, it is a threat to them that they should not return. These attackers are also those who support the Taliban design.
This is an attempt to defame local Muslims of Kashmir. Killing innocent civilians including teachers is a move to attack and damage the age-old tradition of communal harmony and brotherhood in Kashmir.
Killing innocents is a conspiracy to “target local ethos and values” which will be defeated by the police and people collectively.
