The Concerned Citizens Group (CCG), issued a statement on Saturday, urging the government to ensure that no innocent Kashmiris are targeted in the wake of the Pulwama attack.

“At a time when the nation is passing through trying circumstances, we appeal that the government must not take any steps which detract from the constitutional framework of the country or the universally accepted principles of rule of law. It is imperative that no innocent Kashmiri, within J&K (Jammu and Kashmir) or in the rest of India, is made to feel insecure or unsafe. In this context recent pronouncements of the Hon’ble Supreme Court have brought much solace,” it said in a statement.

“We recognize that terrorism is a grave threat to the nation, especially terrorism emanating from Pakistan and deserves to be condemned in the strongest terms. Terrorism is a grave issue and has to be dealt with unitedly by the nation’s leadership cutting across political lines. The current situation must, therefore, be dealt with in a non-partisan manner. Any attempt to leverage the developments in J&K for electoral purposes is fraught with danger and should be avoided at all costs,” the group added.
