Amarnath Yatra

Amarnath Yatra Terror Attack

The Amarnath Yatra, he said, is a symbol of Kashmir's composite culture and the perpetrators of the attack on pilgrims stand exposed before the people of the state.

The statement issued by Trump's Press Secretary Sean Spicer made a clear reference to the state of Jammu and Kashmir, dispelling an earlier controversy over the State Department calling it "Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir".

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday said that the Amarnath attack was an attack on their brotherhood and it has been "unequivocally condemned". "We extend condolences to the victims' families and the people of India". We are here on behalf of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to express our solidarity.

Proactive operations have been launched, mainly in south Kashmir, to track down Ismail as investigations including communication intercepts have pointed out to his involvement in the attack on Amarnath pilgrims, a senior police official said. "That's of great concern to us", she told reporters at a news conference.

"We deplore the attack on #Amarnath pilgrims & condemn all acts of terrorism".

"Today is the occasion when the country needs to speak in one voice", he said, adding that the entire nation is "rising in revolt" against the attack.

Separatist leaders also condemned the attack. The deadliest attack was mounted by LeT terrorists on August 1, 2000.

Civilian deaths have increased 164 per cent, as we said, from 14 in 2015-16 to 37 in 2016-17, while terrorist deaths have risen 18 per cent during this period to 178 in 2016-17. Police sources say the rules of the pilgrimage bans buses from travelling on a highway after 7 pm for security reasons but the bus had been delayed because of a breakdown.

Congressman Ted Poe, U.S. representative for Texas's second congressional district, tweeted, "The terrorist attack on #AmarnathYatra is reprehensible and must be condemned".

Salahuddin also leads the United Jihad Council, an umbrella organisation for anti-India terrorist organisations such as Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed, known to operate out of Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir.

In a tweet, Norwegian Ambassador Nils Ragnar Kamsvag said, "Norway condemns cowardly Amarnath terror attack". The state government is serious about the incidents that happened during the Amarnath Yatra.
