Kashmiri protesting jantar mantar termed the planned murder of sarpanch as an attempt to “trigger fear psychosis” among the minorities in the valley
Several Kashmiri Pandit organisations on Monday condemned the killing of Sarpanch Ajay Pandita in Anantnag district, calling it an attempt to “trigger fear psychosis” among the minorities in the Valley.
The groups urged the central government to provide security to Kashmiri Pandits (KPs) and other minority community members living in Kashmir.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday said violence will never win in Kashmir, as he condoled the death of a sarpanch (village head) who was shot dead in Anantnag district this evening.
Ajay Pandita, a Kashmiri pandit sarpanch of the Larkipora area in Anantnag district and a member of the Congress party, was shot dead by terrorists in his native village around 6 pm, Monday the police said.
Mr Gandhi said that Pandita sacrificed his life for the democratic process in Kashmir.
I’m pained that terrorists shot my son at his back. He has 2 daughters, who even after this incident have said that they will not leave their native place:
