Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Friday said that Pakistan was showing “no respect” for the holy month of Ramazan and blamed it for the recent killings on the border.
Notably, five civilians and a BSF man were killed, while a dozen people were injured after India and Pakistan traded fire with each other in Jammu region along the International Border(IB).
“Continued firing on the border in Jammu is the cause of pain & worry. Sad that while our country took the lead in starting peace initiatives with cessation of operations during Ramzan, Pakistan has shown no respect whatsoever for this holy month, ” Mehbooba tweeted.
In another tweet, Mehbooba said: “Pakistan will have to reciprocate & contribute to efforts for lasting peace. Everyone must realise that violence is a zero-sum game. My deepest condolences to families of victims”.
