SRINAGAR: Apni Party president Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Friday condemned the killing of three BJP workers in Kulgam district.
In a statement issued here, Bukhari said such violent incidents add to the miseries and sufferings of people and cannot be condoned by any civilized society in the world. “This dastardly attack on political workers can fetch nothing except for bringing more chaos and agony for the people,” he said while urging the government to take serious cognizance of this incident and take all necessary security measures in this regard.
Bukhari said the elements inimical to peace and prosperity in J&K should not be allowed to go scot free and the administration must identify and nab the culprits behind such attacks and book them under stringent laws.
“This unfortunate incident has taken place when the whole world is celebrating Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi (SAW). Kashmir has already witnessed enough death and destruction in the last over three decades. Now this mindless violence should end somewhere so that people can heave a sigh of relief,” he remarked.
Bukhari said that killing the unarmed grass root level activists is a cowardly act which cannot be justified by any means and philosophies. He expressed solidarity with the bereaved families, relatives and associates of the three slain political workers and prayed for eternal peace for their souls.
“We pray to Almighty Allah to give courage to the bereaved families to face this difficult time and bear their irreparable loss,” he added.
Bukhari also sought a thorough security review for vulnerable political workers who reside in more violence prone areas in J&K. “The J&K government should take a review of the security situation and take measures to prevent recurrence of such attacks in future,” he added.
