Omar condemns ‘selective outrage’ in Kashmir

Srinagar, March 23 (IANS) Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday hoped that there was equal condemnation against rights violations by militants in the state as when the security forces are accused of it.

His remark comes a day after a 12-year-old boy, who was taken hostage, was killed in a gunfight in Bandipora district’s Mir Mohalla area along with two other militants.

The police however, accused the militnats of shooting the boy dead.

Taking to Twitter, Omar said: “I wish there was as much outrage in Kashmir against militants when they take a young boy hostage as there is when security forces are accused of human rights violations.

“Selective outrage is cowardly and hypocritical.”
