Terrorists kill a BJP leader in Kashmir the day Mehbooba Mufti appeals to terrorists to not carry out terror attacks during Ramzan

The terrorists' attack on Mir came on a day former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti made a problematic appeal to the terrorists not to carry out any terror attacks 'in the month ot Ramzan'.

Terrorists killed Gul Mohammad Mir, BJP district Vice President on Saturday in Jammu and Kashmir’s Nowgam in South Kashmir. He was shot dead by terrorists at his home in Nowgam village. He sustained serious bullet injuries in the chest and abdomen and was declared brought dead to the hospital.

Mir had unsuccessfully contested the state assembly elections on the BJP ticket in 2008 and 2014 both. Terming the killing barbaric, BJP state spokesperson Atlaf Thakur said that despite threats from militants, Mir’s security was withdrawn by the government.

Mufti appealed to the terrorists to not carry out terror attacks during Ramzan. She also appealed to the government to not carry out search operations and crackdowns during the holy month of Ramzan ‘so that people of Jammu and Kashmir at least spend one month in relief’. Ramzan is likely to begin from 5th or 6th May, depending upon sighting the crescent of the moon.

Mufti’s statement drew a lot of flak on the social media where people condemned the implications of her appeal of ‘no terror attacks during Ramzan’.

In 2017, just a few days after Ramzan, terrorists had carried out an attack on the Hindu pilgrims returning from the Amarnath Yatra leaving as many as seven pilgrims dead.

Meanwhile, Pulwama and Shopian districts in Kashmir will go for polls on Monday, May 6, in the fifth phase of polling in the Lok Sabha elections. Due to security reasons, the polls in Anantnag Lok Sabha constituency which is composed of 16 assembly segments, is being held in 3 phases.
