BJP condemns killing of party sarpanch, his wife by terrorists in Anantnag


Their sacrifices won’t go waste: BJP chief Ravinder Raina

Jammu: J&K BJP President Ravinder Raina on Monday condemned the killing of a party leader and his wife by terrorists in Anantnag district, saying that their sacrifices will not go waste.

BJP sarpanch Ghulam Rasool Dar and his wife Jawahira were shot dead by terrorists inside their rented accommodation in Anantnag town of south Kashmir.

Raina said the perpetrators of the “cowardly attack” would not escape the punishment at the hands of law-enforcement agencies.

“Once again the coward Pakistani-sponsored terrorists have bled Kashmir by killing our Kisan Morcha leader and his wife. Both of them were active members of the BJP and enthusiastically took part in the functions to mark the second anniversary of the revocation of Article 370 on August 5 and raised the Tricolour,” Raina said.

“They have sacrificed their lives for the nation and we will not allow their sacrifices to go waste.” He said Pakistan and terrorists supported by it are conspiring to turn the Kashmir valley into a graveyard but “our police, paramilitary forces and the Army are determined to root out terrorism and bring peace to the valley”.

“Our forces have launched a hunt and they will avenge the killings by eliminating those responsible for the act,” Raina said, adding those who indulge in violence are enemies of “humanity as well as Islam”.

Ashok Kaul, J&K BJP General Secretary (org.) said, “I strongly condemned the terror attack on our Kissan Morcha District President and Sarpanch Shri Ghulam Rasool Dar and his Wife. In which both of them got martyrdom. May God give peace to the departed souls and fortitude to their family to bear this terrible loss.”
