Two days after Imtiyaz Ahmad Mir, a sub-inspector with the Jammu and Kashmir Police, was martyred following a terrorist encounter, his family members wrote an open letter on social networking platform, addressing it to the terrorists who killed him. The title of the letter reads: “A open letter to the murderers of Sub Inspector Mir Imtiaz”
In the letter, the writer said:
“Do u know wen u killed Imtiaz you killed a loving son of an aged mother.. A obedient son of an old father.. Their only hope of old-age... 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. U killed the most God fearing man... U killed a deeply religious man whose every endeavour was to offer Sallah in time... Who would never ever miss even a single Roza in d month of Ramadan.”
Later, the writer went onto express about the martyred police officer’s love for Kashmir in the post:
"Most importantly, you killed someone who loved his Kashmir and it's people like anything...Whose only wish was to see a happy Kashmir. U killed a man who just wanted to visit his family.. His aged parents and his trouble stricken sister.”
Here is the full letter:
