Earlier this week, the prime accused in the Parliament attack, that took place in 2001, was given capital punishment. And the way the state of J&K has reacted to it is very unfortunate. Since the verdict, the state has seen widespread violence with the masses taking to streets against the decision. And today's newspaper carried the news of J&K CM Ghulam Nabi Azad pleading to PM for clemency.
I fail to understand what precedents this "politician" is setting. Is he advocating for the attack on the parliament? Does he think that these attacks are justified?
At the same time, I also fail to understand that what has made this terrorism-infested state back a terrorist. Is there any important point that I am missing here? Or is it that, this is just a facade that's being created by those who wish to breed unrest in the valley to create anti-India sentiments?
Other "politicians" like Mahbooba Mufti of PDP has also joined the bandwagon saying that when Indo-Pak relations are improving, Indian Govt should take positive steps. What relations is she talking about? The ones that are 'In The Line of Fire'?
The situation getting really messy here. Hope the Indian Govt acts in a responsible & matured manner.
