A Kashmiri’s letter to a fellow Kashmiri…..

I don’t celebrate tragedies even of my enemies, unlike those who celebrated mine. But I don’t like to indulge in false and fake breast beating either. Nature’s wrath has been too furious in Kashmir this time. It is indeed sad and tragic. I feel sorry for all those who are suffering. Because I can understand what it means to lose your home and hearth.

too difficult to regret and to mourn. Not that I feel happy which I really can’t over such a calamity of such humongous proportions, but probably because I’m too human to weep for those who celebrated my tragedy… who danced over the killings and death of my people by damning them as traitors and informers… who did not let me even mourn my dead even of my own and even in my solitude…rather I was told that my dead deserved to die as they were informers and traitors to the holy cause …who did not allow even the decent last rites of my dead, warning and threatening that I may meet the same fate if I did that … Not even now letting me to freely visit my holy places like Amarnath and Kausar Nag….

I must confess that I’m indeed indifferent or at best as much concerned about it as I should be about any such tragedy happening anywhere else in Syria or Somalia. This is natural for me to remember all this when I remember my dear neighbour, my dear ‘brother’, my dear ‘friend’ for a long time who no longer remained a neighbour, a brother or a friend…who stuck stickers at my gate, “Indian dogs go back”…

    This mix of anguish and sympathy so touchingly expressed in the letter Is truly reflective of our creed and values we cherish. I wish it is read by one and all from the valley

    Exactly my sentiments. If I had to express my feelings… They would have been in same words
