In a tragic twist to the ongoing saga of violence in the valley a youth called Fozia has died in a road accident caused by a stone pelting mob in Srinagar. Faced with grievous harm from a hail of stones, an SUV driver reversing to take shelter ran over the girl and killed her on the spot. Her sister, Nadia was also severely injured.
In other words the police have made it clear that stone pelters not pellet guns are responsible for Fozia's death. But even though the police have blamed the Azaadi Brigade not one of the so-called torch bearers of 'insaaniyat' that backed the stone pelters have condemned the incident or those behind it.
There are no candlelight marches, no call to accountability. That level of indignation it seems is only reserved for state forces. The hypocrisy is striking.
