Kashmir civil society protest proves there is no space for militancy in Valley: Jitendra Singh


Hailing the Kashmir civil society for protesting against the ‘attack’ on Amarnath Yatra, Union Minister and BJP MP from Jammu, Dr Jitendra Singh on Wednesday said that unanimous condemnation to the killings clearly indicates that there is no place for such acts in the valley.

“I hail and appreciate the widespread condemnation by the civil society members on the attack on Amarnath pilgrims that left seven of them dead and several injured,” Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s office said during a news conference at SKICC here.

“Earlier there used to be a selective condemnation to incidents of this kind. Today, Kashmiri people have proven that there is no place for militancy and bloodshed.”

He said there are some elements who are fishing in troubled waters of river Jhelum in Kashmir and efforts are on to defeat them.

Singh said that Amarnath Yatra will continue uninterrupted despite Monday’s attack.

“Despite the attack on Monday, the pilgrims insisted that the Yatra should not be suspended even for a day, and it should continue,” Singh said.

On the probe, Singh said: “No one should jump to any conclusion on the attack. Let us wait for the definite inferences and inputs to come from the security agencies.”
