All those who tried to divide India by killing our soldiers at Pulwama in Kashmir must be punished in accordance with the law of the land. Also, all those who are trying to divide our country by giving hate speeches ~ painting all the Kashmiri Muslims as terrorists and by assaulting innocent Kashmiri students at various parts of our country, must be punished accordingly.
In this hour of darkness, we need to be united and show the world that we are united. We need to show solidarity with the law abiding Kashmiri students, shopkeepers who have been residing in various places of India to tell the world that Kashmir is an integral part of India and Kashmiris are our brothers and sisters. Unfortunately, some anti-national elements have been creating a wrong impression by attacking Kashmiri students and shopkeepers in some parts of our country. They have been trying, as it were, to justify the cause of the rabid organisation who is behind the dastardly killing of our jawans.
The forty CRPF personnel who were killed in the Pulwama attack represent the unity in diversity of our great country. We have Kashmiri Muslim (N Ahmed), Bengali Hindu (S Biswas and B Santra), Punjabi Sikh (S Singh, MS Attri, J Singh and K Singh) and tribal Jharkhandi (V Soreng) among the martyrs.
Also we have our brothers from MP (AK Kaochi) to Rajasthan (J Ram, R Lamba, NL Gurjar, H Meena and B Singh) to Assam (M Basumatari) to Tamil Nadu (Subramanian G. and Sivachandran C.) to Himachal (T Raj) to Kerala (V Kumar V. V.) to Uttarakhand (M Lal and V Singh) to Karnataka (Guru H.) to Odisha (MK Behra and PK Sahoo) to Maharashtra (S Rajput and R Shivaji) to Bihar (S Sinha and RK Thakur) to UP (AK Yadav, PK Tripathi, A Kumar, VK Mourya, R Vakeel, P Kumar, R Yadav, KK Rawat, P Singh, S. Babu, AK Azad and M Kumar) among the martyrs. Indeed, Pulwama martyrs teach us what India is all about.
Moreover, we cannot tag all the German Christians as terrorists for the Holocaust against Jews. Also, we cannot tag all the Indian Hindus as terrorists for the 1984 riots against Sikhs and 2002 riots against Muslims. Similarly, we cannot tag all the Kashmiri Muslims as terrorists for the terror strike in Kashmir.
