    Senior analyst B Raman questions and deeply condemns the near-to-total silence of Valley separatists over the barbaric murder of three Kashmiri girls by suspected LeT militants.

    In our excitement over the revolution from nowhere sweeping across the Arab world and in our preoccupation with trying to understand what has been happening in Egypt [ Images ], we should not fail to highlight and protest against the utter barbarity of the cold-blooded murders of two young Kashmiri Muslim girls at Sopore in Jammu and Kashmir [ Images ] by three suspects believed to be from the Lashkar-e-Tayiba [ Images ] on February 1-- two of them suspected to be locals and the third suspected to be a Pakistani.

    Such jihadi barbarity has been known in the past and continues in the present. Public opinion ought to be shocked and outraged not only by the act of barbarity that put an end to the lives of two innocent and young Muslim girls, but also by the deafening silence of large sections of the population of the Valley in general and by many -- if not most -- of the separatist leaders in particular.

    Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah [ Images ] and Sajjad Lone, the dissident leader, need to be complimented for strongly coming out against this barbarity.

    The almost total silence of many others in the face of the courageous articulation by leaders like them of their outrage should not be a matter of surprise either. It had happened in the past and it continues to happen in the present.

    These silent people never hesitate to condemn and protest every time there are allegations of excesses by the security forces. They never hesitate to come out in their hundreds and thousands and demonstrate in the streets against the security forces.

    But they seem to have lost their voice, conscience and courage when innocent civilians were deliberately and barbarically killed by the jihadi terrorists.

    Their silence not only speaks of their physical and mental cowardice. Worse still, it also speaks of their willingness to tolerate and white-wash jihadi barbarity. 'Jihadi barbarity is understandable,' that seems to be their view.

    Silence in the face of barbarity amounts to complicity in the commission of barbarity. Not only is the cold-blooded murder of these two girls barbaric, the cold-blooded silence of these people is equally barbaric. Those who murdered these girls are guilty of barbarity in action. Those who remain silent are guilty of barbarity in mind.

    One has not yet seen any strong reaction from roof-top liberals such as Arundhati Roy [ Images ] and her ilk to the barbarity perpetrated at Sopore. One should not be surprised if they come out with double-edged words to rationalise the act of barbarity while seeming to deplore it.

    Our electronic media has done well in highlighting the barbarity and the accompanying criminal silence. They should keep it up. It should not be just a proforma outrage. It should be a real outrage.

    The writer is Additional Secretary (retd), Cabinet Secretariat, Govt of India [ Images ], New Delhi [ Images ], and, presently, Director, Institute For Topical Studies, Chennai.

    That is why the separatists are just a joke and all polls show that Kashmiris want to stay with India.

    This is a good news. Kashmir's separatist movement has corrupted itself. Now this movement is being led by morally corrupt hypocrites. Common people cannot be fooled forever, and a corrupt movement cannot sustain itself.

    Kashmiri separatist are bunch of hypocrites not since just recently but from 50s. People in Jammu city have many stories about them how they have ripped off GoI resources by bullying tactics and blackmail from day one. From paying electricity bills to college fee J&K has witnessed many agitations and outlaw acts of low level anarchy. Terrorism and violent form of separatist movement was worst continuity/extension of the same, not something newly invented in 8os.

    As far as the protest for these barbaric murders of innocent women is concerned then non of these Kashmiri have yet got balls to protest against LeT.
    I have seen Lone brother on NDTV pretending brave after so many year but actually scared as hell, appealing their own people to stop violence within the group not for others. Thankless cowards.

    The encounter might be a Fake, How can any one prove this? Why does separatist want to loose their Local support? these are few question... which remain unanswered. Mujahidin are fighter of Islam, the word Mujahidin states fight for Islam and followers of It. The Army of Allah do not need such cowardices work.

    I fail to understand what exactly you are trying to say here. If you statements are genuine one or if these are sarcastic comments ?

    Why do you have seen the hands of Mujahidin and Muslims on every violent act?

    Because mujahideens are behind every major act of violence in our country. Recent activity by some of right wingers are there but they are nowhere in comparison to them and also its sheer frustration on their part with central government policies and failure to contain terrorism.

    Maoists are not Mujahideen !
    Mujahideen is a very narrow term and refers to those insurgents/militants/terrorists operating in Kashmir.
    The Right wingers you are referring to our not right wingers nor even extremists but are terrorists.

    Muslims have been the victims twice over - from the stupidity of Muslim extremists who metaphorically pour petrol and fan the flames of the right-wing extremists (terrorists).

    "Muslim engaged in what he considers to be a jihad".
    A Mujahid is a person who fight for justice and takes up arms to defend his religion, land and injustice.
    "Allah is our Lord, Quran is our constitution, Muhammad is our leader, Jihad is our way and Shahadah is our desire".
    Mujahideen are the holy worriers irrespective of their countries..

    Vishal Bhai.................... Can you pls shed your color and tell us your actual name. And dont worry, you will not be banned here or your voice will be suppressed. This is Defence forum of India. Every one is free to express oneself.

    If they are fighter of Islam? Then what they did in Mumbai is correct?

    Also note that if it would have been done by any other Group & not by Militants (your so called Mujaheddin), then the Scene would have been totally different.

    We could have easily seen Roi ting all around Kashmir by few Kashmirs rowdies.
    Fire every where in Kashmir.
    Lots and Lots of violence in Valley.
    Stone Pelting. etc etc etc.

    Now why they are quite, even after the killing?................. Because the only reason is that they dont have balls to fight these Terrorists or oppose the killing.

    Go get a life man......

    It is in context of all over the world, not of India...
    It is already written in Koran itself, and If someone not believe in Koran, not Muslim any more.... You should fight for your brothers and their rights... So why Mujahideen goes against Koran. As far as Non believers.... they have their own path towards hail

    Does Quran preaches you to lie? If no then reveal your correct Name. If you don't reveal now. That means you are a liar and you dont follow Quran & you are not true Muslim.

    don't preach us okey....

    Don't worry we Non believers don't need your approval to go to hail. I don't understand how even you support them.

    From getting a great opportunity to nail the separatist, this thread is being sent down the path of closure. No flame baiting will be tolerated.

    Vishal miya! yahi to problem hai ki ham sach ko dekhkar bhi usey nahi maante. Wo girls agar aapki family me hoti to aapka statement kuch aur hota. In short don't just close eyes and see the reality, this has unmasked those so called Jehadi or Mujahidin and for whom they are fighting.

    Separatists are always silent when terrorists kill innocent Indians, or when IA personnels are gunned down by those dogs from across the border. This is not rocket science guys, separatists do what they are paid to do by their dozen papas from across the border.

    Vishal, you need to have a reality check. OR just a thought, maybe!
