Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Friday, while holding Pakistan responsible for the border killing, said that the country is showing “no respect” for the holy month of Ramazan.
Mehbooba in her tweet said, “Continued firing on the border in Jammu is cause of pain & worry. “Sad that while our country took the lead in starting peace initiatives with cessation of operations during Ramzan, Pakistan has shown no respect whatsoever for this holy month”.
In another tweet, Mehbooba said: “Pakistan will have to reciprocate & contribute to efforts for lasting peace. Everyone must realise that violence is a zerosum game. My deepest condolences to families of victims”.
Pertinently at least five civilians and two BSF men were killed and dozens were injured after India and Pakistan troopers exchange firing along the Jammu region along the International Border (IB).
Meanwhile the Union Ministry had called for the ceasefire during the month of Rmadan.
