Faith makes you fearless: SRK on pilgrims continuing Amarnath yatra

The home minister took stock of the prevailing situation in Kashmir Valley, particularly on the routes to the shrine located in the Himalayas at an altitude of 12,756 feet, during an hour-long meeting. But the Jammu and Kashmir police say they have intercepts that prove the Lashkar's role. Seven pilgrims from Gujarat were killed in the attack and 21 injured.

The devotion and belief of the people going for the pilgrimage at the Amarnath caves Yatra are so strong that nothing, not even the terrorist attack on Amarnath, can shake their spirits.

To prevent further attacks, security forces must step up intelligence gathering and follow-up action. "All yatra movement which is protected by the security forces on the highway stops at 7 pm after which no movement of pilgrims is officially allowed", said a senior police officer.The pilgrims had performed the yatra and had boarded the bus at north Kashmir's Baltal base camp. We convey our condolences to the families of the victims and wish a speedy recovery to the injured.

"They had finished their darshan just two days ago and had plans of visiting a few tourist places", Munir Khan, Kashmir IG, said. "They kept on firing non-stop from the front", Shaikh, who is being hailed as a hero, said.

Mehbooba Mufti said the best way one can pay homage to these heroes is to develop Jammu & Kashmir as an egalitarian and tolerant society, free from the distinctions of religion, region, caste or creed.

"No Kashmiri has ever targeted any pilgrims, and this barbarity and atrocity is the trademark of Indian forces", the group's statement said.

He is said to have been assisted by another Pakistani and two local militants. "I don't know if it's really safe for them there". "Possibility of backlash can't be ignored", he said in a Twitter message.

Seven Hindu pilgrims were killed Monday after their bus became caught in the middle of a firefight between militants and law enforcement along India's restive border with Pakistan.

"Deeply saddened at the cowardly attack on innocent #AmarnathYatra pilgrims. All Kashmiris are not terrorists".

Meanwhile, students in the Gujarati city of Ahmadabad gathered for a sit-in to protest all religious violence, while peace activists planned a candlelight vigil in New Delhi on Tuesday night. Asked if terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) was behind the attack, he said it had been confirmed by the security agencies, but the investigation was still on.
