When leaders become shameless
K.N. Pandita Ishrat Muneer, a 25-year old girl of village Dangarpora in district Pulwama was gunned down by the jihadi terrorists although she had supplicated with folded hands for sparing her life. With the first bullet piercing her skull she fell down. The cannibal fired another bullet on her head. Her dead body was recovered from somewhere in Draggad area of Shupian in Zainapora. It became viral and their purpose was served. Uploading the video on social media is meant to send a message across that “informers” in the valley would meet the identical fate. Until this day, so many killings have taken place for the same reason. And silent and non-reacting Kashmiris c...

One New Year Resolution
B L Saraf Year 2018 has walked into the history, rather ungainly. Year 2019 has made an entry, albeit, not a reassuring one. That said, ritual is to be followed — of assessing what the year gone by gave us and have a hope of the incoming one. Left to us, one New Year Resolution we the people in the State would earnestly like to have is “to make 2019 AD a violence free year.” Only, if it is up to us! Having the realization that ‘new years ‘ brought nothing ‘ new ‘ to us in the past, it is too much optimism to crave for 2019’s benign indulgence. Here, Faiz’s poetic lament becomes appropriate; Aasman badla hai afsoos na badlee hai zameen Ek Hindsay kaa badlana koi jidaa...
