Women, children worst sufferers of militancy in JK: Omar
‘Govt making efforts to heal their wounds’
Srinagar, May 24: Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah Thursday said that the children and women in the State had to bear severe brunt of the militancy and maintained that the Government was making efforts to “heal their wounds.”
Speaking to the Chairpersons of Social Welfare Boards of various States who are presently here, the CM said that the worst sufferers of militancy were children and women.
“They were most innocent victims of the militancy who had no say and nothing to do with anything in this regard. The psychological and physical trauma they had gone through in the period of disturbance has created deep scar of depression in them”, the CM said.
The CM maintained that the State Government was “gradually pulling them out of this pain and providing palatable and helpful atmosphere to heal their wounds and help them live a normal life.”
“Our endeavour has been to keep their optimism live and work for their bright future”, he said adding that process of bringing them out of darkness is on. He said that the visit of Chairpersons of Social Welfare Boards from various States and their interaction with women folk of Jammu and Kashmir at various levels would help to restore confidence in the women of the State.
The CM said that the perception generated during the period of militancy regarding visiting J&K for security reasons has to be removed.
“And the mindset changed from negative perspective to the positive one. I would like you to carry the message from this place to whole of the country reflecting the positive change and peaceful atmosphere gaining ground in the State especially in the Valley. You represent all corners of India and I would like you to tell your countrymen what you have felt and experienced here during your stay”, the CM told the Chairpersons.
The CM said that the people of the State are known for their hospitality. “And they are resilient to rebuild peaceful and progressive J&K is. Peace is returning and we are receiving quiet large number of guests from all across the country since last year. We would like more and more visitors travelling here and relishing the natural beauty and hospitality of the people”, he maintained.
