He loved Kashmir & wanted to see a happy Kashmir’: Slain J&K cop’s family member in open letter to militants
Srinagar: Mir Imtiyaz, a sub-inspector with the Jammu and Kashmir Police, was killed by militants in South Kashmir on Sunday. A day later, one of his family members has written an anonymous post on Facebook, reminding the militants that they had killed a man “who loved Kashmir and its people… and whose only wish was to see a happy Kashmir”.
The “open letter to the murderers of Sub Inspector Mir Imtiaz” was posted on the slain cop’s Facebook page by a family member who did not disclose his name, but said “come and kills us all”.
You have killed a loving son of an aged mother, an obedient son of an old father. U killed a brother who was the only support of his brother and sister.. U killed every dream of a young girl whom he wanted to marry (sic),” the moving post read.
The family member wrote that Mir, a devout Muslim, was a bright student and had excelled in his profession as well.
U killed a man who had suffistic thoughts… Someone who read suifisim vastly… Who read Karal Marx and every other field of thought..U killed a man who topped his Masters batch… Who was among the toppers of his S I batch (sic).
“Most importantly you killed someone who loved his Kashmir and its people like anything.. Whose only wish was to see a happy Kashmir,” the open letter read further.
According to the family member, the militants shot dead Mir while he was going to see his aged parents and “trouble-stricken” sister. According to the writer, Mir’s niece has since been saying that she is missing her “mammu” (mother’s brother).
“But wen u killed him y didn’t u kill us all.. Y didn’t u kill hs Mom Dad sister brother and the women whom he wanted to spend the rest of his life vd.. (sic)
“How can anyone console them…and we all just wanna ask his killers y did they not kill us all.. Plz come and kill us all… We can’t live without him (sic),” the letter full of emotions further said.
Mir, 30, was killed at Wahibug in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Sunday afternoon. His colleagues have claimed that in a bid to dodge militants, Mir was going to his home to see his aged parents after shaving off his beard and changing his appearance. But all that proved unsuccessful and Mir could not avoid the militants’ death trap. Times now
