Srinagar, June 01 (KMS): Independent political analysts as well as human rights activists who keep a close watch on oppression against minorities and champions of right to self-determination movements have noted it with surprise that the world is showing concern over murder of just one black man by a police officer in the United States, but is indifferent to the killings of thousands of innocent people at the hands of Indian state machinery in occupied Kashmir.

The analysts and rights activists in their media interviews argued that the world should, indeed, take serious note of the killing of the black man in the US; however, it should not, at the same time, make any discrimination in expressing its concern over the loss of such lives in occupied Kashmir as blood of a black man and a Kashmiri Muslim is always red in colour. »

The Sikh leader in a statement in Jammu said, the Sikh community is pleased with the statements and values these condemnatory statements. He said that India had been making attempts, in vain, to pitching Sikhs and Muslims against each other from day one.

Devendra Singh Behl cited the massacre of 35 members of the Sikh community by the men in uniform at Chhatti Singhpura on March 20, 2000, and said that it was also an attempt to rupture the unity. “History bears testimony that India’s intelligence agencies were involved in the heinous act and the attack on the Gurdwara in Derby may also be the handiwork of Indian intelligence agencies.” He said that the Sikh community, especially the Sharmani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee, was always involved in alleviating the plight of Kashmiris. “Even when the biggest flood hit the Kashmir Valley in 2014, the Sikh community took an active part in the relief work for the Kashmiri people,” he added. »
