When a neighbour recently returned from Hajj—an annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca—Zohra asked her mother: ‘When will papa return?’ Eight-year-old is waiting for her father. Abdul Rasheed Shah, Zohra’s father, was an assistant sub-inspector (ASI) of Jammu and Kashmir police. He was killed in a militant attack in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district on August 28 last year. At this time families of the policemen are feeling miserable and unsafe. Following the recent attacks, the cops who live in south Kashmir have been directed not to visit their families. This is how Kashmir cops live between fare and hate.
