Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday hailed the people of Kashmir for their unequivocal condemnation of the terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims in Ananthnag district.

“Every section of the society in Kashmir has condemned the unfortunate cowardice act of terror on the Amarnath pilgrims. I salute the people of the state,” Rajnath Singh said here.

Rajnath’s comments came after he chaired a high-level security meeting with top government officials, including National Security Advisor Ajit Doval.

“No one in Kashmir has praised the terror attack, this proves that Kashmiriyat is still alive there. This also boosts my morale to fight against such forces,” he said.

Seven people were killed and 19 others were injured when terrorists opened fire at a bus in Jammu and Kashmir’s Khanabal area on the Jammu-Srinagar highway on Monday evening. The state police has blamed the LeT terror group for the attack.
