While hate-mongers among the so-called champions of Kashmiri Pandits continue to spread venom in their bid to cause more fissures among people living in the Valley, a group of local Muslims in Jammu and Kashmir have exposed the hate brigade once again.
According to a report published by Kashmir Life, the family of Deepak Malhotra, a Kashmiri Hindu of Sheikh Mohalla of Old City Srinagar lost his aging mother on Saturday.
Despite curfew in the area, local Muslim population risked their lives to perform her last rites.
Their heroic act is receiving plenty of plaudits on social media with people describing the act as a befitting reply to the communal forces who never appear tired of spreading their “poisonous propaganda” against Kashmir and Kashmiris.
In May too a group of Muslims had performed the last rites of a Hindu woman, who passed away in Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir.
But what made today’s act even more surreal was that the situation in May was not as alarming as it is now with dozens having lost their lives and hundreds injured in clashes with security forces.
Curfew has been imposed in several parts of the valley with police having carried out unprecedented crackdown on the local media.
As reported by jantakareporter.com earlier, the local police had snapped the transmission of cable TV and siezed newspapers from local printing presses. Several journalists too have allegedly been arrested.
