By taking the molestation of a Ladakhi girl lightly, the separatists have once more exposed themselves as no such powerful reaction was seen on their part. The condemnation however came after there were reports in media about the “hypocrisy” of separatists which was obviously done to save the face. On December 20, a student of Jammu Government Medical College was allegedly molested by the Head of the Department, Forensic Sciences GMC in the winter capital. While the incident outraged people of her native Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir regions have been silent. What a shame! Even authorities would have conveniently swept the case under the carpet despite FIR being registered in this regard. The administration also avoided taking any action for almost a week which shows a lack of concern even on their part. It was only after senior legislators from Ladakh region including Nawang Rigzin Jora, Asgar Karbalai, Aga Syed Baqir and Deldan Namgyal discussed the matter with Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti that her government took any action. What is intended to ask is: why such regional bias over the issues those are purely humane. Unless or until, we rise above such discriminatory behavior, our State will continue to witness uncertainty in all spheres.
