Due to the sudden increase of the selective killings of members of minority communities in Jammu and Kashmir, many people in Srinagar and Jammu hit the streets against the recent target killings of civilians.

The recent attacks and a sudden wave of terrorism in Kashmir have sparked a sharp condemnation in the country.

During the funeral procession of Supinder Kaur, a teacher who was shot dead inside a government higher secondary school in the Eidgah area yesterday, thousands of people raised slogans of ‘We want Justice’. As well as another teacher was killed in the same school. While Supinder was principal of the school, the second was a Kashmiri Pandit, Deepak Chand.

Few days back, a local Pandit, ML Bindroo was shot dead, a street vendor who belonged to Bihar and a local taxi driver in Srinagar were killed.

J&K High Court Bar Association, Jammu, President MK Bhardwaj said that using terrorism selectively against the minorities is an act of cowardice and demanded a strict action against the anti-national forces to prevent them for repeating similar acts in future.

Meanwhile, J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha said that the administration takes responsibility for not being able to prevent the recent terror attacks in Kashmir, even though there were no specific inputs in this regard.

The Ministry of External Affairs has also raised concerns regarding the cross-border terrorism and it is discussing the issue with its partners.
