Srinagar: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday said its worrisome to witness that there is no letup in killings and bloodshed in Kashmir even during the holy month of Ramazan.
In a statement issued here, PDP said the unabated killings of civilians, militants and government forces in Kashmir has once again made peace elusive even during the ongoing sacred month of Ramazan.
It 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.
PDP said that it has been the cardinal principal 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 wouldn’t bring any positive change on ground.
It said keeping the sanctity of the holy month of Ramadan 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, the PDP President made a fervent appeal to both militants as well to the security grid to declare 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.
