The images of Zohra, the daughter of the assistant sub-inspector (ASI) of police Abdul Rasheed from Kashmir are enough to break our heart into pieces. Abdul Rasheed was martyred on Monday after he was shot at and injured by terrorists in south Kashmir’s Anantnag.He was admitted to a hospital in Anantnag where he succumbed to his injuries.

The images of his daughter Zohra crying inconsolably are breaking hearts all over Social Media with condolences pouring over from everyone. This letter posted on the DIG Police of South Kashmir FB page addressed to a girl who lost her cop father is heart breaking and captures all the emotions and sacrifices that an army man’s family gives in order to keep us safe.

My Dear Zohra,
Your tears have shaken many hearts.The sacrifice made by your father will always be remembered. You are too young to understand as to why this happened.
People responsible for such violence who attack the lawful symbol of the state and society are indeed insane and enemy of humanity.Your father like all of us represented Jammu Kashmir police force- a hallmark of valor and sacrifice.

Many of our police families have suffered and undergone irreparable trauma defending the common good of the society.All those faces and stories indeed create a rich history making us proud. We cannot forget our heroes, our dear ones with whom we lived and worked all these years.All these families are part of a great journey that JKP has undertaken serving the society.

Remember we all are one family at this critical phase. Every drop of your tear sears our heart.May almighty give us the strength to go ahead with our mission of rendering services for the betterment of the society.The vow that we have taken when we donned the uniform stands supreme. Let our spirit and commitment become the harbinger of change, let it be the message of peace and harmony for the fellow citizens.We will always cherish the memory of ASI Abdul Rashid as a true policeman who sacrificed his life in the line of the duty.RIP
With loads of blessings,
All ranks and officers of JKP

Our prayers are with Zohra and her family, may the brave soul rest in peace!
