Gurmehar Kaur mouths off platitudes on Pulwama attack, says Incidents like this create political polarisation against minorities

While she expressed concerns over Islam and Pakistan being perceived as 'equal' she also spectacularly ignored the fact that the organisation behind the attack calls itself 'Jaish-e-Mohammad' and the attack was an act of Islamist terrorism.

As the country mourns the death of the CRPF soldiers in the Pulwama terrorist attack, the “liberal intelligentsia” of the country seem to be more worried about the fate of the so-called ‘minorities’ in the country than the families of soldiers who lost their lives in the ghastly terrorist attack. One such liberal, Gurmehar Kaur who appeared on BBC Urdu after the Pulwama terrorist attack expressed deep concerns over the perception of Pakistan and ‘peace efforts going in vain’ in the country after the attack.

Kaur said that it is sad to see the efforts of peace go in vain after such attacks take place but one should keep trying for peace between the two countries. When asked whether the Pulwama terrorist attack would influence the internal politics of the country ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, Kaur replied that the effect of the attack is quite visible even now. She accused ‘politicians’ of using the attack and said that politicians bank on polarisation that they do after such attacks and that this has created hatred in the minds of people.

While she expressed concerns over Islam and Pakistan being perceived as ‘equal’ she also spectacularly ignored the fact that the organisation behind the attack calls itself ‘Jaish-e-Mohammad’ and the attack was an act of Islamist terrorism.

Speaking on Kashmiris, Kaur said that the situation is sad for Kashmiris after the attack. She said that the “rhetoric for avenging the deaths” is peddled in the name of justice. “I think justice for martyrs children and for anyone would only be achieved when we put an end to violence”, said Kaur. She also conveniently ignored to mention the fact that the attack was carried out by an Islamist terrorist group sheltered by Pakistan.

Kaur, however, completely ignored the hatred and religious fanaticism that was actually behind the attack. The video released by JeM showed the suicide bomber proudly declaring that he is going to kill “cow urine drinkers” and avenge the Babri mosque demolition. Kaur’s hypocrisy in exonerating the perpetrators of the attack and trying to shift focus to political narratives was called out widely on social media too.

Kaur became darling of the media overnight after her video went viral in which she held a placard on which “Pakistan did not kill my Dad, War killed him” was written.
