KL Report

Srinagar

Condemning the recent Shia-Sunni clashes in Central Kashmir’s Budgam district, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said that these acts are aimed at dividing society on sectarian and communal lines.

Omar was talking to a delegation of Majlis-e-Tahfuz-e-Itihaad (MTI) constituted by the civil society to pacify the tension in some villages of Budgam and nurture the brotherhood between Shia and Sunni Muslims. The delegation was led by MTI Chief Coordinator Agha Syed Mujtaba.

Omar said that elements behind these tensions expand their activities soon elections draw nearer. He said they want to polarise the society, create conflicts between various sections, sects, faiths, regions and castes keeping eye on votes.

While cautioning about the nefarious designs of the elements behind the sectarian clashes, Omar announced one month’s free ration for the effected families of the district.

The Chief Minister told the delegation that Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir will be Nodal Officer for assessing the damages caused to various families in the clashes so that a comprehensive rehabilitation programme is launched for their rehabilitation. He said the Divisional Commissioner will be given directions to complete the damage assessment report within the shortest possible time so that rehabilitation of the affected families will start as soon as possible.

Assuring all possible help of the government for rehabilitation of the affected families, Omar expressed deep grief over the loss of a human life and damage to the property during the clashes

Omar Abdullah asked the delegation to play their important role in nurturing brotherhood, love and affection between various sections of the society. He also asked them to remain vigilant against the elements who propagate trifle incidents into conflicts between two groups just for their personal benefits.
