Killing of 22 Kashmir Pundits

What a way to start, but sadly the news that stands out in my mind is this - the killing of 22 hindus in Kashmir.

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/05/01/world/asia/01cnd-kashmir.html?hp&ex=1146542400&en=6598ab048fa95950&ei=5094&partner=homepage

The Prime Minister, Chief Minister of J&K etc etc have all condemned the killings. Beyond which what can they do. This is all we hear day in and day out, people getting killed somewhere and leaders offering their so called words of comfort.

What drives a mind to kill so many innocent people who have done no harm to the killers, who were merely going about their daily lives. Do these killers have families, do they have mothers or brothers or sisters, if yes, then do they not think that their own kith and kin could one day be amoung these victims?
