SRINAGAR, May 18: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today said it is worrisome to witness that there is no let-up in killings and bloodshed in Kashmir even during the holy month of Ramadan.
In a statement, PDP general secretary Ghulam Nabi Lone Hanjura said that the unabated killings of civilians, militants and security forces in Kashmir has once again made peace elusive even during the ongoing sacred month of Ramzan.
He said the way in which precious human lives are lost in Kashmir, there are apprehensions that the government is in no mood to shun the muscular policy that so far has yielded no positive results.
"It has been the cardinal principle of the PDP that muscular and iron fist approach is bound to fail in Kashmir as such measures have in the past only wreaked havoc and in the future also would not bring any positive change on the ground," PDP leader said.
He said keeping the sanctity of the holy month of Ramzan in view, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti as the chief minister last year played a vital role in making GOI declare a unilateral ceasefire in Kashmir. This year also, said Hanjura, the PDP President made a fervent appeal to both militants as well to the security grid to declare a truce and respect the ongoing holy month.
“It is hoped that good sense will prevail and the vicious cycle of violence and bloodshed is stopped at an earliest so that the people of Kashmir yearning for peace could heave a sigh of relief,” said Hanjura.
