Exemplary punishment to culprits of Kathua Rape-Murder Case in offing: PDP
State’s secular fabric to be secured at all costs, political solution to Kashmir Issue inevitable: Peerzada Mansoor
Srinagar, Mar 11: Terming the rape and murder of the Kathua teenage girl as heinous and unpardonable crime, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday reiterated that the culprits shall be brought to the book sans any delay and no one will be allowed to cause any damage to state’s secular fabric.
Addressing people in Central Kashmir’s Kangan area, PDP general secretary Peerzada Mansoor Hussain stated that the government has prioritized its efforts in giving justice to Asifa’s family and punish her killers at an earliest. He added that the probe ordered by the chief minister is going on in the right direction and no person found involved will be spared by the government.
Training guns against the opposition National Conference, the PDP general secretary stated that the party has stooped too low that it is now hell-bent to create communal and regional wedge in the state by trying to politicise the rape and murder of the innocent teenage girl.
“Jammu and Kashmir is a state which has been a torch bearer of inter-religious harmony and now attempts are being made to tear the secular fabric of the state apart. We will not allow this to happen- come what may,” Mansoor said in his address.
Terming Kashmir a political issue, Mansoor stated that the PDP’s core agenda is to strive and struggle for the amicable solution of Kashmir issue and ensure betterment in the lives of the people who have been bearing the brunt of hostilities between India and Pakistan since decades.
The rally was also addressed by the senior PDP leader and MLC Mohammad Khurshid Alam who asked the people to become the ambassadors of the PDP’s message of peace, tranquillity and equitable development in Jammu and Kashmir. “There is a dire need to get the state out of the clutches of those who fish in the troubled waters. It is the PDP that has been on the forefront in ensuring end to partiality and mis-governance which was the trademark of the other regimes in the state.”
The rally was also addressed by PDP’s Ganderbal District President Bashir Ahmad Mir, senior PDP leader Nazir Ahmad Khan, Dr Ali Mohammad and several others.
