Civilian killings belie claims of normalcy in J-K: Mehbooba

GOI keeps blowing its trumpet of normalcy in J&K even when such gruesome incidents suggest otherwise. My heart goes out to Ambreen Bhat’s family & pray her nephew recovers swiftly, Mehbooba said.


Srinagar, May 26: PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday questioned the Centre’s Jammu and Kashmir policy saying the civilian killings in Kashmir did not support Government of India’s claims of normalcy in the union territory.

In Kashmir, mournings have sadly become the norm & a daily ritual. Countless innocent civilians are killed in one way or the other & devastated families are left behind to pick up the pieces. What will it take for GOI to recalibrate their J&K policy to end this bloodshed? Mehbooba tweeted.

Commenting on the killing of a female TV artist by three Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists in Budgam district’s Chadoora area on Wednesday, the former chief minister said while the government was making claims about normalcy, the gruesome killings suggest otherwise.
