A family member of Jammu and Kashmir police sub-inspector Mir Imtiaz, who was shot dead by terrorists in South Kashmir on Sunday (28 October), has written an open letter to Imtiyaz’s murderers asking them kill the other family members as well, The New Indian Express has reported.
The letter, which was posted on the Facebook wall of the slain police officer, was titled “A Open letter to the murderers of Sub Inspector Mir Imtiaz” and was written by an anonymous person.
The writer, in the letter, wrote that by killing Imtiaz, “you have killed a loving son of an aged mother, an obedient son of an old father."
"U killed a brother who was the only support of his brother and sister. U killed every dream of a young girl whom he wanted to marry," the letter reads.
The writer wrote that Mir excelled in his studies, profession and was a devout Muslim.
"U killed a man who had Suffistic thoughts. Someone who read Sufism vastly. Who read Karl Marx and every other field of thought. U killed a man who topped his Masters batch. Who was among the toppers of his S I batch.”
"Most importantly you killed someone who loved his Kashmir and its people like anything. Whose only wish was to see a happy Kashmir," the letter reads further.
The writer said that Mir was coming to see his aged parents and “trouble-stricken” sister. The writer also said that the little niece of Mir is repeatedly saying that she is missing her “mammu” (Maternal Uncle).
“and we all just wanna ask his killers y did they not kill us all. Plz come and kill us all. We can't live without him (sic)," said the letter.
