CM enraged over silence of netizens
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Srinagar, Mar 20: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Tuesday lashed out at netizens who maintained silence over the killing of a teenaged boy by militants in Sopore town yesterday but had showed outrage against killing of a youth in security forces firing last week.
“Militants chase an 18-year-old boy in to a mosque and shoot him.
Imagine the outrage if this had been done by security forces,” Omar wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter.
Omar said he was willing to accept the anger directed against the government for excesses by the security forces only from those who are willing to condemn the killings by militants as well.
“I can accept the anger directed against us for excesses by security forces but only from people willing to condemn such killings,” he said.
The Chief Minister said the hypocrisy was evident from the reactions on his Twitter timeline to the killing of a youth by CRPF personnel last week and lack of any reaction to Suhail Sofi's killing.
“Want to see the hypocrisy of selective outrage? Compare reactions on my TL (timeline) today to those exactly a week ago,” he added.
