Srinagar: Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti, paid a poignant visit to the home of Martyred DSP Humayun Bhat in Srinagar. During her visit, she made a candid statement that shed light on a stark contrast in emotions prevailing across the nation.

A grief-stricken valley

Mehbooba Mufti expressed her condolences for the tragic loss of a young officer, DSP Humayun Bhat, who had tied the knot just last year. She remarked, “Everyone can see how the conditions in the valley are. A young man who was married only last year has been martyred. There cannot be any bigger tragedy than this.” Her words carry the weight of the profound grief felt by the families of these brave officers.

She went on to reveal a disheartening contrast, stating, “And the BJP was celebrating at the same time in New Delhi.” This sharp contrast between the celebration in the capital and the mourning in the valley highlights the stark realities faced by the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

A call for real action

Expressing her despair, Mehbooba Mufti emphasized that mere words of condemnation wouldn’t bring back the lives lost. She lamented, “I cannot even say anything. These parents have lost a young son, and their world is completely ruined. How many times do we keep on saying that we condemn these killings? They won’t come back by our condemnation. It’s very unfortunate for the youth of Jammu and Kashmir.”

Her visit and heartfelt statement serve as a stark reminder of the challenges faced by the region and the need for concrete actions to bring about peace and stability. The loss of young lives in the line of duty is a tragedy that reverberates throughout the valley, demanding not just words but resolute efforts to ensure a brighter future for the youth of Jammu and Kashmir.
