Kashmir Diaspora pays tribute to Asiya Jan, Neelofar on Facebook, Twitter
Srinagar, May 30: While as the Kashmir Valley observed complete shutdown on the third anniversary of alleged double rape and murder of Aasiya Jan and Neelofar of Shopian, Kashmir Diaspora paid rich tribute to the duo on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. From early Wednesday morning, a number of internet users posted their updates on Shopian tragedy on Facebook. Similar was the situation with other social networking and blogging sites like Twitter.
Many of the internet users posted emotional updates, which were followed by responses from their followers. “May your soul rest in peace my sisters: Asiya & Neelofar,” wrote Abid Showkat, a Valley youth studying outside.
Author of the famed book ‘The Collaborator’ Mirza Waheed shared Arundhati Roy’s article on Shopian. “Shakeel’s house is on edge of graveyard where his wife & sister are buried,” read the article.
“There is no way we can forget the day when your lives were cut short. You live to be with us and there is no way we can just forget it. If they have got things of brute force, we have your memories, pen and paper,” a student Faisal Khurshid posted on Twitter.
Pertinently, Shopian tragedy shook the entire Valley, with the district observing continuous strike for 48 days against the tragic incident.
“We will always remember you,” wrote another Facebook user. “Today we observe shutdown to remember the sacrifice that you rendered for this nation. Your sacrifice shall never go waste.”
