What is happening in Kashmir? Why are interlocutors being appointed for Kashmir? Why are interlocutors appeasing the separatists and Hurriyat leaders who are directly funded from Pakistan? Why has stone pelting been legalised in Kashmir? Why stone pelters are freely attacking army vehicles? Why cases against more than 10,000 of them have been withdrawn?
Why has Centre allowed Mehbooba to withdraw stone pelting cases against stone pelters who attack men in uniform? Why has Centre turned a blind eye to the deplorable plight of men in uniform who are expected to brave stones and yet not retaliate? Why has Centre legalised stone pelting in Kashmir?
Why Centre is firm that it will not make any law to punish those who live in India yet chant pro-Pakistani slogans? Why Centre is firm that Article 370 of the Constitution which was not originally in the Constitution but inserted later by a ‘Presidential Order’ of 1954 would not be removed under any circumstances? Why Centre led by PM Modi feels proud that stone pelting has become an industry under Modi’s leadership and still he feels that no cases should be registered against stone pelters?
Why Centre supports the line of Mehbooba that stone pelters even if they attack soldiers in huge numbers of 300 or so just like happened in Shopian and if soldiers fire in self defence then cases should be registered against those soldiers who fire as happened actually in Shopian when FIR under Section 302 (murder) and Section 307 (attempt to murder) was lodged against Major Aditya Kumar even though he had himself not fired and he was quite far away from the Army convoy in which soldiers opened fire after stone pelters most ruthlessly attacked soldiers and who then to save the life of a JCO fired in defence due to which 3 stone pelters died? Why is Centre and State Government not taking any strong action against stone pelters? Why no case was registered against stone pelters who without any grave and sudden provocation assembled in huge number and meticulously attacked a peaceful Army convoy?
Why so much of undue leniency for stone pelters? Why is Centre not sending extra force to Kashmir to deal with them with an iron hand if they dare to attack soldiers while they are operating to kill terrorists? Why is Centre not taking a clear stand on this?
