Srinagar: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday while paying tributes to the martyrs of 1931 said that the overwhelming condemnation of the attack on Amarnath pilgrims by Kashmiris proves that Kashmiriyat (Kashmiri Ethos) is alive.
A guard of honour was presented by the police and floral tributes were offered at the Martyr’s Graveyard in Khawaja Bazar area of Downtown Srinagar.
On July 13, 1931, 22 people were killed in firing by the forces of Maharaja outside the Srinagar Central Jail, where an in-camera trial of Abdul Qadeer, a freedom fighter, was being held.
Earlier Home Minister Rajnath Singh had also tweeted that Kashmiris have proved that Kashmiriyat is alive after the attack on Yatris was condemned by all political shades.
Mehbooba while speaking to reporters added that despite the atmosphere of fear and terror, Kashmiris cutting across political and ideological divide have overwhelmingly condemned the attack.
Seven pilgrims and nineteen were injured after a bus was caught in the cross fire when suspected militants attacked forces in Batengoo area of Anantnag district.
