Restoration of peace biggest challenge in J&K: Mehbooba

JAMMU: Terming restoration of peace in Jammu and Kashmir as the “biggest challenge” for the State, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today appealed the people to maintain communal harmony.

“I want to say that maintain brotherhood because the biggest challenge faced by Jammu and Kashmir is how to restore peace. You will say that everything is fine here (Jammu) but in Kashmir there is firing and strikes,” she said after laying the foundation stone of a multi-tier parking lot here.

She said that her Government has been working hard to provide good governance and ensure there are no human rights violation.

“Here Hindu, Muslims have been living together for so many centuries but when some anti-social elements who exist in every community, try to divert us, we indulge in communal fights,” Mehbooba said.

Praising the secular nature of Jammu region, she said the city has given shelter to thousands of Kashmiri migrants.

“I need not remind you how secular the people of Jammu are. You gave shelter to thousands of Kashmiri Pandits and Muslims who left the Valley and settled here,” she said. (AGENCIES)
