Kill The Politicians Who Looted Kashmir, Not Innocent People: Governor To Militants

Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik Sunday urged militants to stop killing innocent people and rather target “those who have looted the wealth of Kashmir for years”.

“These boys who have picked up guns are killing their own people, they are killing PSOs (personal security officer) and SPOs (special police officers). Why are you killing them? Kill those who have looted the wealth of Kashmir. Have you killed any of them?” Malik asked, speaking at a tourism function in Kargil.

The Governor’s remarks attracted a sharp backlash from former CM Omar Abdullah, who said Malik should check his own reputation in Delhi.

“This man, ostensibly a responsible man occupying a constitutional position, tells militants to kill politicians perceived to be corrupt. Perhaps the man should find out about his own reputation in Delhi these days before sanctioning unlawful killings & kangaroo courts (sic),” Abdullah tweeted.

Later, Abdullah said, “Save this tweet – after today any mainstream politician or serving/retired bureaucrat killed in J&K has been murdered on the express orders of the Governor of J&K Satyapal Malik.”

“Is he trying to promote a jungle raj?” asked State Congress chief G A Mir. He said the governor’s statement does not behove the constitutional position occupied by Malik.

“The maulivis (Islamic preachers) promise you heaven after death but here I am promising you heaven while you live, subject to you leave the path of violence,” he added in his appeal to the local militants. Referring to the mainstream politicians of Kashmir, Malik said these leaders talk a different language in Delhi and a different one in Kashmir. “They should speak in one language at both places and need not scare us,” he said.
