    If the killlers of Farjad Hussain and Saleem Abbas were arrested and punished ,we would have not lost more lives in Naltar today.
    We have been speaking about the divide and occupation in Naltar and today’s incident once again highlights that local people are pitted against each other so that important lands could be occupied through forced militarization and policing.
    This is not new and never will be the last incident. We need to question how and why the terrorists roam free and do whatever they wish despite the garrisoning of whole Naltar Valley
