Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik on Monday asked militants to shun the path of militancy, assuring that his administration is ready to do whatever it can for their rehabilitation.
“There is nothing like ‘operation all out’ and some people are using this wrong term. We want these children (militants) to come back and we are ready to do what we can do for them,” Malik told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.
He was replying to a question on the call by some politicians to stop ‘operation all out’ and an inquiry into the killings in the Kashmir Valley.
Malik on Friday had also said that Kashmir is an issue for people aged between 13 and 23.
