SRINAGAR: Youth National Conference on Saturday called for isolating the divisive elements by strengthening the bonds of amity, unity and tranquillity.
According to a statement issued here, Youth NC provincial president Ajaz Jan while expressing concern over hate crimes said this is a dangerous trend fraught with the danger of dividing society on communal lines. He said these elements should be kept at bay as they were threat to great traditions of secularism.
“India is abode of all religions and our ancestors have been living in harmony but some elements have started a campaign to divide people on the name of religion and a number of incidents have taken place in recent past,” Jan said.
He underlined the need for bridging the gap and dealing divisive elements involved in hate crimes with iron hands. He expressed concern over deteriorating law and order situation and killing of innocent people.
Youth NC leader also condemned the statement of deputy CM Kavinder Gupta wherein he termed the kidnapping, rape and murder of a Kathua girl as a small issue.
