Why condemn only some killings, asks Omar

Jammu, March 20 (IANS) Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Wednesday took a dig at those who are “selective” in condemning killings in Jammu and Kashmir.

Making a suo motto statement in the assembly, Abdullah wondered there was silence over the killing of 18-year-old Suhail Ahmad Sofi by militants inside a mosque in Sopore Tuesday night.
He said there were double standards in the political condemnation.
“Today , I don’t see anyone condemning this killing nor do I see the outrage witnessed when someone gets killed in firing by security forces,” he said.
Earlier, Abdullah said on twitter site: “Militants chase an 18-year-old boy into a mosque and shoot him. Imagine the outrage if this had been done by security forces… hypocrisy.”
No group has owned responsibility for the murder.
