Security agencies question silence of human rights activists over civilian killing in Jammu and Kashmir

NEW DELHI: Security agencies have questioned the silence of human rights activists and groups on the killing of three innocent civilians in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday, with senior officers asking if police action against terrorists and overground workers alone counts as “human rights violations” for them.
Makhan Lal Bindroo, a known chemist belonging to the minority Kashmiri Pandit community, was assassinated on Tuesday by The Resistance Front (TRF). Around the same time, Mohd Shafi Lone, a common Kashmiri from Naidkhai, and Virender Paswan, a labourer hailing from Bhagalpur in Bihar and residing at Alamgiri Bazar, were also killed, with TRF later claiming responsibility.
J&K police and Central agencies believe TRF is only a front of Lashker e Taiba, rebranded to project Pakistan-sponsored terror as an “indigenous” movement by Kashmiri locals.
The absence of any public statement by either the domestic NGOs and ‘experts’ or international watchdogs, condemning the two dozen civilian fatalities inflicted by terrorists in J&K till September this year or Tuesday’s killing of three innocent civilians, comes less than a month after United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) chief Michelle Bachelet had criticized the frequent use of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, particularly in J&K, temporary communication blackouts and the high number of detentions and alleged that such restrictive measures could result in human rights violations.
Questioning the “deathly silence”, a top officer of the Central security establishment said: “Despite planned, cold-blooded killings of three civilians in a span of one hour, no global outburst has emerged decrying human rights violations in Kashmir. The very same, so-called Kashmir sympathizers, particularly in Britain, Europe, the US and the Gulf. unleash a torrent of social media posts following any action by the Indian security forces against the Pakistan- terror forces. After three assassinations, they all have maintained a deathly silence. Within India too, those who are constantly pained over the killing of terrorists in Kashmir have found no reason to speak up if locals and non-locals are killed by terrorists. The Kashmir ‘sympathizers’ are jolted into action only if a terrorist, a sleeper cell operative or an over-ground worker (OGW) is killed”.
Another official alleged that the “so-called experts” write on Kashmir when they please and hold the Indian state responsible for every wrong in J&K. “Their modus operandi is simple. One, publish an article on Kashmir in a national or international journal. Two, exonerate Pakistan, label the Kashmir insurgency as “largely an indigenous movement”. Three, be bracketed as a venerable protector of human rights,” claimed the officer.
A J&K police official said the international outrage on Kashmir follows a pattern. “It is selective and subjective. Brutal killings by terrorists year after year are ignored. These human rights champions are blind to the terror ecosystem where religion is used as a tool to indoctrinate vulnerable youth and use them for the Kashmir conflict,” the officer noted.
