Azad voices concern over Kashmir situation

New Delhi, July 11 (IANS) Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Monday expressed grief and sorrow over the death of over 20 people in the Kashmir Valley and voiced “deep concern” over the situation in the state.

Azad, who heads the opposition in the Rajya Sabha, said the law and order situation in Jammu and Kashmir should be restored as soon as possible.

“The need of the hour is to ensure that the law and order is restored at the earliest without any further loss of lives,” he said in a statement here.

Azad wished speedy recovery to the more than 200 civilians and security personnel injured in the violence that erupted after a top militant, Burhan Wani, was killed on Friday.

Earlier, Congress President Sonia Gandhi appealed to people to maintain peace in Jammu and Kashmir and said that the political gains made over the past two decades in the state must not get lost.


  1. These superficial concerns are meaningless unless we acknowledge the root cause behind this violence. The situation will continue a long as we have these dishonest political parties hiding behind ‘secular’ banner. The stenographers in media are also equally corrupt and dishonest. For example, look how more and more parents in “God’s ooowwwwn country” are approaching Police to report ‘missing family members’!! At least a dozen people from kaasaragodu have joined ISIS. But our stenographers are too afraid to look into these reports or publish those stories. This is the sad state of Indian society!! I’ve a very bad feeling that all these dishonest media and politicians will push India into a very dangerous situation resulting in huge tragedy. Every true secular person should try to stop these forces.

  2. India has some hopes. Finally, we have a journalist who is not afraid to support India and its army. Someone who is not afraid to name the enemy and and its ideology!! Will those tens of thousands of stenographers learn a lesson or continue to hide under the tables? Only time will tell…!!!
