The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) will hold a nationwide protest on Tuesday against the terror attack on the bus carrying Amarnath pilgrims in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag district. “We will hold a nationwide protest tomorrow against the attack on Amarnath Yatra,” VHP spokesperson Vinod Bansal said on Monday.

Condemning the act, the VHP leader also sought for a decisive action against the terrorists.

In a rare attack on the Amarnath Yatra, terrorists killed seven pilgrims and injured 14 others, including policemen, when they struck at a bus carrying them on Monday.

The bus was attacked in Batengoo around 8:20 PM while returning from Baltal to Mir Bazar after darshan, Jammu and Kashmir police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) said.
