It is not just another brutal murder one more member of minority Hindu Community in Kashmir, it is brutal assassination is murder of trust, love, affection, faith and hope, says Girdhari Lal Raina Spokesperson of BJP-JK UT & a former MLC. Condemning in strong words the brutal murder of renowned KP businessman Makhan Lal Bindroo, who was gunned down in broad day light in Srinagar Kashmir, Ex-MLC blamed Kashmir society including power hungry politicians for his inhuman killing. Coward Terrorists fired shots provided by their masters, but the so called Main stream power hungry politicians who issued inflammatory statements about imaginary “division of Muslim votes” are equally responsible for breeding revulsion against religious minorities, added Raina. Ex-MLC questioned terror apologists for their silence beyond customary cautious condemnations of brutal murder.
How does one explain the silence of convenience he asked as Makhan Lal Bindroo 68 was shot dead by the assailants from point-blank range while he was at his pharmacy dispensing medicines? That Mr Bindroo was eliminated in spite of being a perfect example of claimed brotherhood and much abused term “Kashmiriyat” . Doesnot it expose the factual nature of violent conflict in the valley and real motives behind death and destruction aided and abetted by forces across the border.
Bindroo ji did not leave Kashmir in 1989-90 along with rest of his community; he continued to serve people by providing much needed medical services to one and all; he contributed materially to social and even religious causes of majority community yet he was chosen as a target not for his political affiliation, not for his occupational incompetency but only because of his religious faith.
GL Raina cautioned against continued silence of so-called civil society. Kashmir has already seen a lot of bloodshed; it is ethnically cleansed of religious minorities. Generations have suffered immensely and madness will stop only when the majority community decides to speak and withdraw religious sanction used as cover by mindless killers. Radicalisation of Kashmir society must be reversed.
Security establishment also cannot escape its responsibility, he emphasised. Over Ground workers and sleeper cells are reportedly being activated. For weeks it was in the air. Terrorists are looking for soft targets like ML Bindroo, Ajay Dhar and Virender Paswan. Security strategy needs to be re-evaluated and holes plugged. Nation can ill afford to see Kashmir receding back to mayhem of Nineties.
