There seems to be no let-up in the violence in Kashmir. The trigger this time has been the killing of 22-year-old Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani by security forces on July 8.
Unsurprisingly, the hospital has treated more civilians than people belonging to armed forces. Yet the mob decided to have a go at it. Though the state’s Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has urged Kashmiri youths to show “patience and calm” at this “critical and sensitive” hour, the mob clearly defied her requests and chose to attack security establishments at the mere sight of it.
So far, nearly 100 policemen and paramilitary CRPF personnel have been injured in stone pelting by protestors across Kashmir.
