After the killing of a Kashmiri Pandit, Rahul Bhat, by terrorists in the Budgam district of Jammu and Kashmir, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal urged the central government to come forward and spend money to make the Kashmiri Pandit community feel safe in Kashmir.
Arvind Kejriwaal has been gradually spreading his party’s wings all over the country. After unseating the Congress in Punjab, the morale of the AAP party is upbeat. Kejriwal has been taking a keen interest in political issues across the country.
His statements regarding the killing of a Kashmiri pandi, Rahul Bhatt, and the lathi charge by police show his political ambition. His sympathy with Kashmiri pundits is another political move which is like the movement of a pawn on a chess board.
The killing of Rahul Bhatt forced people to come out on the streets all over the valley to agitate against the killing. The police not only stopped them, but the cops rained lathis on the protesters and tear gas was also used. Kejriwal said “The police officer who did this should be sacked.” “Protesting Kashmiri Pandits should not be lathi-charged; they should be hugged.”
After the death of Rahul Bhat, Kashmiri Pandits were silently protesting in the valley and demanding complete security for them from the government.
Veteran leader Farooq Abdullah said on Monday, “Tear gas, lathi-charge—what was the need? They were only asking for security. They did not pelt stones—until today, I had never seen Kashmiri Pandits pelting stones.
On Sunday, J&K LG Manoj Sinha announced a probe into the lathi-charge incident.
In his statement, Arvind Kejriwal said, “Why are Kashmiri Pandits not safe in Kashmir even today?” Lots of young Kashmiri Pandits were sent there with government jobs. They wanted to live peacefully. It’s their home. But after this incident, all Kashmiri Pandits are scared. This is not the time for politics. “
Killing of Bhat
Rahul Bhat, a Kashmiri Pandit government employee, was shot dead by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir’s Budgam district. He was attacked at the Tehsildar office in Chadoora in central Kashmir on Thursday afternoon.
The ‘Kashmir Tigers’, the terror outfit, took responsibility for the attack.
