Srinagar Mayor Junaid Azim Mattu called on all communities to unite while condemning the killings of civilians that took place Thursday in Jammu and Kashmir.
The mayor said: “The elements supported by Pakistan are behind this. We should all go out on the streets and take a stand as a society that we will not allow this, I call on all communities to stand together. Kashmir belongs to people of all religious beliefs, ”he said addressing the media here.
Reacting to the killing of two government teachers by terrorists in the Eidgah area of Srinagar earlier today, Jammu and Kashmir’s DGP Dilbag Singh said civilians were being targeted to create community tensions in the territory Union (UT).
“These recent incidents aimed at targeting civilians must create an atmosphere of fear and discord between the communities here. This is a conspiracy to target local ethics and values to defame local Muslims in Kashmir, ”Singh told media here.
“We are investigating the matter. Police in Jammu and Kashmir have received evidence in previous such incidents, ”added the DGP.
A new investigation into this case is underway.
