Diagnosing that India will take note only if there’s a celebrity getting harmed, a Pakistani Facebook page has put out photographs of several famous Indian personalities including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, actors Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan, India Test captain Virat Kohli among others, overlaid with pellet gun injuries.

The CRPF has been using “non-lethal” pellet guns on crowds ever since protests broke out following the July 8 killing of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani leaving many protesters and ordinary Kashmiris blind and with acute injuries, some of them as young as 4.

The FB page, Never Forget Pakistan, is running a campaign ‘What If You Knew the Victims?’ premised on the fact that most Indians don’t connect with the suffering of ordinary Kashmiris who have been blinded and injured by the use of “non-lethal” pellet guns by security personnel. This looks like an attempt for the rest of India to see the plight of Kashmiris and their political wishes.

Why do we need to glamorise a tragedy in order for people to pay attention. Have we all become that numb,” the page asks, and to make the point more forcefully uses the hashtag #IndiaCantSee.
