A Kashmiri guide saves life of 5 tourists

Rouf Ahmad Dar, a tourist guide laid down his life to save the life of five tourists in Pahalgam Kashmir.

They say brave hearts never die, they live for eternity. He saved five tourists including two foreign tourists and in the battle of saving others, he lost his own life.

A son of valley has lost his life but his martyrdom has given hope to life in valley again. It is a rumour that “Kashmirayat is lost”. Humanity lives their in valley buried under the weight of bloodshed and lies of the politicians. It is a lie that compassion is lost in the valley.

A common person either from Kashmir or Kanyakumari never wants bloodshed or a closed market.

If miseries of valley end, how will separatists and other politicians play their cards to win the chair. The famous politicians who burn the schools in valley and send their own children to  Harvard and Oxford, how will they run their business of spreading hate among the youth? A guide has taught them that midst of all the chaos created by the evil minds here, a Kashmiri is ready to sacrifice his life to save humanity.

Valley has seen only bloodshed in past few years. And both national and international media is selling the stories of bloodshed in Kashmir to gain TRP. However, this story of sacrifice will never get any hype in the media. Here, the media goes wrong.

From decades, they are selling Kashmir in the name of blood and stone pelters  and this cycle will continue till the  people of valley and security forces not come together and stand against the betrayers instead of standing against each other.

The valley has been betrayed by her own people and  its time to respect the sacrifices of our security forces and people like Rouf Ahmad Dar and restore peace.

Those who think there is no hope for valley, open your eyes. Don’t close your eyes and  then cry “The world is blind”

There is no darkness in valley, the darkness is in you mind. Rouf Ahmad Dar, I salute your courage, I thank you for saving kashmiriyat and Insaniyat amidst the flames of hate and blood. There will be a time when we will sell “pashmina and kesar stories” over ” 25 schools burnt in Valley” and “No fathers in kashmir”.
