Who to blame?

Burhan Wani took arms and became extremely popular in Social Media. He recruited many youngsters into the militancy and fought against the Indian Establishments. He was a hero for locals. He was a wanted terrorist for the Army. An intelligence operation killed him and his partners. It has been reported that the fight lasted less than 5 minutes.

The problem with Kashmir is that they find heroes in Militants or fighters for them. When someone takes arms to kill others, he has to die. There are many soldiers that get killed by the militants. The violent protest of Kashmir has paralyzed the valley since long. Burhan Wani’s body was reportedly wrapped in Pakistan’s flag. Kashmir youth really doesn’t understand that the schools or the colleges or the trains or the buses, they are using are from the tax payers money of the Indian citizens.

This is not about India and Pakistan, it is about Kashmir. Kashmir youth does not make the IPS officers, professors, scholars from the valley, their hero. They have fought for a long time and they have only ensured the loss of lives and bloodshed. If they really want to change Kashmir, then the arm is never the answer. The blame game will continue and the future of Kashmir will be always in the dark. Pakistan has nothing to do with Kashmir. The Pakistan Occupied Kashmir has not become Switzerland and militancy and terrorism has outspread in POK as well.

It is time to realize that the weapons are not the answer. Burhan Wani could have become an IAS or IPS and could have done more good to the Kashmir Youth and Kashmir Valley. However, all he did was to put more youth in danger of losing their lives and taking up arms and death.
