Expressing grief over the loss of lives and continued violence in Kashmir, Adbee Markaz Kamraz Jammu and Kashmir Thursday asked the writers community to rise to the occasion and play their role in reflecting the sufferings of the people.
In a statement an AMK spokesman said "It has been a difficult time to even get connected with the members of the executive due to communication blockade and respond to the situation that has left people helpless".
"The way the situation has unfolded in past two weeks, it is painful and unbearable" he said.
"Killing of civilians has added a new chapter to the darkness that has enveloped Kashmir for long time. It is pains us to express grief over the death of young boys and express solidarity with those who have fallen victim to pellet guns and are at the verge of losing the eye sight," he added .
