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.
