Srinagar: Expressing anguish over the fresh civilian killing, CPI (M) state secretary and MLA Kulgam, M Y Tarigami has said violence in any form was not only condemnable but unacceptable to the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
Tarigami has urged all the political leaders irrespective of their ideological and political affiliations to put up joint efforts for ending every shade of violence in the state. “Violence in any form proves totally counterproductive harming the cause of people. And any hurdles in the peace momentum will help to thrive vested interests and extremist forces only.”
Strongly condemning the killing of Ashiq Hussain, he said such incidents not only create a sense of insecurity among people but further vitiate the hard gained peaceful atmosphere in the state.
MLA Kulgam said the government must act to nab the culprits and bring them to justice without playing any rhetoric’s.
About the killing of Gulzar Ahmed Dar the Sarpanch of Hawoora (Mishipora) Kulgam, Tarigami said such heinous acts are highly condemnable and asked the state not to shy away from its responsibilities of ensuring safety and security of the village level representatives.
Meanwhile, Minister of State for R&B, Javed Ahmad Dar, who is presently at Saudi Arabia in connection with performing Umrah, has expressed grief and sorrow over the death of Ashiq Hussain.
In a telephonic message, the Minister, while extending sympathies with the bereaved family, said that the matter was being investigated and whosoever responsible for the crime will be identified and punished under law.
Former Minister and Member AICC Abdul Gani Vakil expressed shock over the killing and demanded immediate judicial probe into the incident.
Vakil demanded a government job and Rs 5 lakh exgratia to the family of the deceased. He stressed upon the government to take every step in bringing the culprits to book and punish them so that no one can dare to do such a brutal act in future.
