Mehbooba Mufti appeals to militants and Centre for ceasefire during Ramadan

Srinagar | Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti has requested the militants and the Government of India to maintain ceasefire during the one month of Ramadan.

Addressing a press conference at her residence in Srinagar, Mehbooba Mufti said, “People pray day & night and go to mosques, I would like to appeal to Government of India that just like there was a ceasefire during Ramadan last year, crackdowns, search ops should be stopped, so that people of J&K spend at least this one month in relief,” as quoted by ANI.

The PDP leader also requested the militants to not carry out any attacks during this time.

” Would also like to appeal to the militants that Ramadan is a month of worship & prayers. They should not make any attacks during this time”, she said.

She also accused the government of trying to “break the people” of Kashmir.

“Government of India is at war with its own people in Kashmir. Be it the ban of Jamaat-e-Islami, ban of JKLF, the suspension of cross LoC trade, the Highway ban and the way people are being picked up by the forces. It seems in the name of curbing militancy, Government of India wants to break the people of Kashmir”.

Mehbooba Mufti served as the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir from 4th April 2016 to 19th June 2018
