Malik says anger due to corruption made him invoke terrorists

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satyapal Malik has clarified what he meant in the speech where he was reported as addressing terrorists and lamenting that they were killing PSOs instead of the ‘corrupt’ officers the victims were guarding.

Malik told a news agency this morning, “Whatever I said, it was said in desperation and anger due to the rising instances of corruption. I should not have made such a statement as a governor, but my personal thinking is the same, which I said was that many politicians and big bureaucrats are immersed in corruption.”

In a programme for tourism in Kargil under the Ladakh division, Malik had said yesterday, “These boys who have taken up arms are killing their own people; they are killing PSOs (private security officers) and SPOs (special police officers). Why are you killing them? Kill those who have looted the wealth of Kashmir. Have you hit any of these?”

Reacting to the speech of the governor, former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said that Malik should find out what people say about his credentials in Delhi. Abdullah tweeted: “This man, ostensibly a responsible man occupying a constitutional position, tells militants to kill politicians perceived to be corrupt. Perhaps the man should find out about his own reputation in Delhi these days before sanctioning unlawful killings & kangaroo courts.”

Abdullah continued, “Save this tweet – after today any mainstream politician or serving/retired bureaucrat killed in J&K has been murdered on the express orders of the Governor of J&K Satyapal Malik.”

State Congress chief GA Mir asked, “Is he trying to promote jungle raj?” He said that this statement of Malik did not behove someone in a constitutional position. It is against the dignity of his chair, Mir added.

Of course, Governor Malik had added in his speech yesterday that that taking to arms could never solve any problem as he gave the example of LTTE in Sri Lanka.

Malik had said, “The Indian government will never kneel down before weapons.” He had said also that the terrorists must shun the path of violence. He indirectly targeted the mainstream leaders and said that these leaders spoke different languages ​in Delhi and Kashmir.
