A Dy SP Was Stoned To Death In Kashmir While He Was Protecting Mirwaiz Umar Farooq

Published on 23 June, 2017 at 2:32 pm By

A Deputy Superintendent of Police was lynched to death by a mob in Srinagar on the intervening night of June 22 and 23.

Dy SP Mohammed Ayub Pandith was on duty when an irate mob assaulted him, stripped him naked and then stoned him to death in the fashion one sees in lawless Afghanistan.

Reports say that Pandith was clicking pictures outside the Jamia Masjid in Nowhatta area. He was taking photographs and making video of those coming out of the mosque past midnight at around 12:30 am.

Deputed to protect Separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who was inside the mosque at the time, the senior cop was merely doing his duty.

J&K officers on frisking duty do not wear the uniform. Reports say that Pandith was accompanied by security guards, but they fled before the unusually large mob.

When attacked, Pandith reportedly fired from his service pistol injuring three people. Yet the mob overpowered and killed him.

Following the lynching, the mob went on a rampage.

Reports say that the Dy SP had been visiting the mosque quite often and that some locals who regularly visited the mosque knew him. He lived in the neighborhood of the mosque.

But some local Kashmiri media houses published false stories about the cop and attempted to defend the mob which killed him.


What is sickening is that Mirwaiz Umar Farooq did not come to prevent the lynching of the man. Of course, he would have known the man who was protecting him!

It should be noted that the pro-Pakistan Separatists have created a condition in the Valley where the call for so-called ‘azaadi’ has been replaced by Islamist demands.

Perhaps the killing of Pandith is an example of the increasing Islamization of Kashmir, funded and backed by Pakistan’s ISI and ignored by Leftist opinion-makers who dominate the media.

The incident has rattled the state government especially since it comes as Muslims in Kashmir and elsewhere are observing Shab-e-Qadr (the night of power) during which night-long prayers and supplications are made in mosques and shrines.



Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti paid tribute to the slain cop and issued a very strong statement.

“The police are showing maximum restrain, but for how long? Someday they will lose their patience, and then it would become very difficult for the people,” she said.

The top cop of the J&K police, DGP S.P. Vaid, too, issued a stern warning:

But warnings are, perhaps, not going to change the dangerous situation for the police in Kashmir.

A section of the mainstream media initially overlooked the fact that a man had been lynched in this manner.


Twitterati was also angry with the fact that the condemnation of the incident by a section of the media elites was not as wide as was the lynching of innocent men such as Akhlaq and the manner in which they condemned Major Gogoi’s action.

Attacks on the J&K police have been on the rise. Terrorists have been killing police officials in the Valley, but this is the first time that a mob has killed a cop – that too a very senior one.

The manner in which the mob killed Pandith is shocking. It was pure barbarism – as one sees in Islamist societies around the world.
