Ensure safety of Kashmiris outside state, Omar urges Rajnath
Srinagar: Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Friday urged Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to ensure safety of Kashmiri students studying outside in the aftermath of deadly Pulwama attack.
In a series of tweets Omar Abdullah said that you can’t vent anger by attacking innocent people.
Abdullah posted a series of tweets asking political leaders and civil society to ensure that ‘cooler heads prevail’.
“Giving vent to anger by attacking innocent people because of their ethnicity or religion is no way to honour the sacrifices yesterday. Reports of violence & arson in #Jammu are deeply worrying. I hope political leaders & civil society are able to ensure cooler heads prevail”, he wrote.
In another tweet he said: “Kashmiris/Muslims in Jammu didn’t attack our CRPF jawans yesterday, terrorists did. This violence is a convenient tool by some to shift the blame. Let’s unite against terror let’s not allow terror to divide us.”
He appealed Home Minister to ensure that Kashmiris outside the state are protected.
“My earnest appeal to @rajnathsinghji to please issue directions to all state governments to take special care in areas/colleges/institutions where Kashmiris are residing/studying. They are soft targets in a surcharged atmosphere”
