National conference leader Omar Abdullah on Friday expressed worry over the spate of abductions of family members of policemen while lashing out at the ‘selective outrage’ of leaders.
The former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir took to his Twitter handle to question the outrage of those who according to him have been selective with their condemnations, “11 abductions! This is a very worrying reflection of the situation in the valley. What’s worse is the selective outrage – people/leaders who are so vocal about alleged security force excesses are silent about these abductions,” Omar wrote.
In another Tweet Omar said that he does not condone harassment of families of neither militants nor policemen, “I don’t condone any families being harassed but how about a word of condemnation for the harassment and worse still the kidnapping of families of police personnel,”
Pertinently, 11 people mostly relatives of policemen have been abducted by suspected militants in the restive south Kashmir.
On the other hand for the past few days forces have allegedly been harassing militant families.
