Jamaat-e-Islami expresses grief over loss of lives in Pulwama attack
New Delhi: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) has severely criticized the terrorist attack in Pulwama, Jammu & Kashmir. In a statement to the media on Friday, JIH President Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umarisaid: “the path of violence and killing can cause death and destruction but will not lead to solution of problems’’.
Maulana Umari continued: ‘It is very painful to hear that 44 CRPF soldiers had to lay down their lives yesterday. Instead of vitiating the atmosphere, efforts should be made to restore peace and security in the area and this is possible only through negotiation and dialogue. This will lead to the solution of the grievances of the Kashmiri people and help create a climate of peace and stability.’’
The JIH President said: “we appreciate the move by the government of India to carry out a thorough investigation into the reasons for the attack. This may uncover the truth behind the incident. We may be able to find the motive behind the attack, whether it was meant to spoil the atmosphere in Kashmir or to wreckthe relations between India and Pakistan or whether it was a big conspiracy to damage the climate of peace and coexistence in our country just before the general elections. We express our deepest condolences for the soldiers and pray for the speedy recovery of the injured’’.
