NC condemns killing of civilian in Shopian
Asks Governor, Home Minister to stop vicious cycle of violence in Kashmir
Srinagar : Urging upon the government of India and the Governor administration to immediately stop the vicious cycle of violence in the already strife torn Kashmir valley, National Conference (NC) General Secretary Ali Mohammad Sagar on Sunday said that the state is passing through one of the most deadliest phases of its history.
While talking to Kashmir News Service (KNS), Sagar condemned the civilian killing and wounding of several others in south Kashmir’s Shopian and said that the state Governor and Government of India’s Home Ministry must intervene without delay to put a lid over the spray of killings being witnessed with each passing day in the state. He said that the violence, death, pillage is becoming a new norm in Kashmir and would prove calamitous for state’s future in the coming times. He added that the tall claims of bringing back normalcy and stopping the stone pelting incidents have fallen flat as there isn’t a single day in Kashmir when killings are not witnessed.
The National Conference General Secretary subtly hinted that the party delegation may take up the issue with the Prime Minister and the final decision in this regard will be taken once party’s president Dr Farooq Abdullah returns to valley.
