Srinagar Oct 7: Kashmir’s Grand Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam on Thursday expressed shock and grief over the "spate of innocent killings of civilians" in Kashmir while terming it "unfortunate that members of a particular community are being targeted".

The Grand Mufti further said that "no one will be allowed to harm the communal fabric of Kashmir which is intact since past so many decades".
