A long time ago, a Kashmiri police officer sent me a friend request. We had several mutual friends but when I’m reading report after report of Kashmiri police attacking protesters I’m not interested to going all buddy-buddy with one of them. Every once in a while, I’d look at his request & wonder if I was being intolerant; just maybe he was one of the good guys. But he’s in a command structure & if they tell him to hunt down protesters, he has to follow orders. I went looking to finally delete the request but he must have pulled it back. There’s a new Modi sheriff in town & it might not be good to be my friend when India wants me thrown off social media.
