Politicians, journalists slammed for playing politics over Amarnath Yatra attack

Yesterday the country witnessed a barbaric attack on Hindu pilgrims who were returning after taking Darshan at the holy Amarnath temple in Kashmir. At about 8:30 PM on Monday, as a bus carrying 60 Amarnath Pilgrims was returning to Jammu, terrorists opened fire at it. This led to the death of 7 pilgirms including 6 women and injured 19 more.

It is believed that 3-5 Pakistan backed terrorists led by one Ismael belonging to the Lashkar-e-Taiba carried out the attack. The casualties could have been more, but according to a passenger on that bus, the driver heroically drove through a hail of bullets to ensure that the bus reached to safety.

This attack shocked the nation. While most were demanding retributive justice and accountability from the government, there were few politicians and media persons who shamelessly tried to politicise the gruesome murder to peddle their agenda:

The CPM leader whose party in Kerala allows murders of RSS workers to go on unabated, was slammed for his comment. He also conveniently forgot that pilgrims were attacked in 2006 and 2007, when his party had extended support to the UPA government:

AAP MLA Alka Lamba, who in the past had laughed about her delaying a fire rescue operation, decided to peddle a cringeworthy conspiracy theory. She was widely slammed for this comment, following which she deleted the tweet:

Modi hating ex-cop, who regularly spreads anti-India propaganda, also joined in spreading the conspiracy theory, which was shared widely by Pakistanis and anti-Hindu commentators, as generally happens with his tweets:

Even journalists didn’t want to be left behind. A comment by controversial journalist Barkha Dutt, suggesting that the Yatra should have been suspended this year, was slammed as being akin to ‘victim blaming’:

One so-called journalist, with a history of peddling unsubstantiated claims, subtly painted the attackers as ‘militants’:

Some where more concerned about ‘Kashmiri Suffering’ than hate crime against Hindus, such as senior journalist Shekhar Gupta of ‘coup’ fame:
