Who Is The Successor Of Syed Ali Shah Geelani?
In the past 4 days, several civilians, most of whom being non-Muslims, have been gunned down by terrorists prompting the Modi government to hold a high-level meeting with security agency chiefs on Thursday.
Prior to the cowardly killings, a Bargheshekha Bhagwati Mata temple in Anantnag was desecrated last week by unknown vandals. The violence didn’t stop there and rose after a popular Kashmiri Pandit by the name of Makhan Lal Bindroo who ran a pharmacy since several decades was shot dead in the heart of Srinagar on Tuesday.
Later, two teachers who were shot and killed yesterday and were identified as Sukhwinder Kaur and Deepak who taught at a government school in Srinagar.
The Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, Manoj Sinha, said on Thursday that the administration takes responsibility for being unable to prevent the recent terror attacks in Kashmir.
There has been an upsurge in terror activity in Kashmir and reports link it to the highly influential nature of the Taliban that has taken over Afghanistan after American troops evacuated the region in August.
