By killing a noted female TV artist of Kashmir, without any fault of her, Pakistan-supported terrorists have snatched only the bread-winner of a poor family because Ambreen Bhat was feeding her poor family through acting and singing.
"She was the daughter and son also. She was supporting the whole family", Khazir Mohammad, father of the artist - who was killed by terrorists in a cowardly attack on Wednesday evening, told the media.
"My daughter was feeding the family by the money she earned through acting and singing", he said with tears streaming from his eyes.
"What was the fault of my daughter. What harm she has caused to anyone?", the mourning father asked and narrated how her daughter was killed by unidentified terrorists on Wednesday evening.
Khazir Mohammad expressed his anguish against the administration for abandoning them at this crucial time.

"Shocked and deeply saddened by the murderous militant attack on Ambreen Bhat. Sadly Ambreen lost her life in the attack & her nephew was injured. There can be no justification for attacking innocent women & children like this. May Allah grant her place in Jannat", former Chief Minister and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah tweeted.
"Her nephew is a young 10-year-old boy. Yesterday it was a police constable's daughter injured in an attack & today this young 10-year-old child. How does anyone justify these attacks?", Omar asked.
