New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday hailed the people of Kashmir for their unequivocal condemnation of the attack on Amarnath pilgrims in Anantnag district last evening.
“Every section of the society in Kashmir has condemned the unfortunate cowardice act of terror on the Amarnath pilgrims. I salute the people of the state,” Rajnath Singh said.
Rajnath’s comments came after he chaired a high-level security meeting with top government officials, including National Security Advisor Ajit Doval.
“No one in Kashmir has praised the terror attack, this proves that Kashmiriyat is still alive there. This also boosts my morale to fight against such forces,” he said.
Seven people were killed and 19 others were injured when suspected militants opened fire at a bus in south Kashmir’s Khanabal area on the Jammu-Srinagar highway on Monday evening. (Agencies)
