JAMMU: Hundreds of activists of Team Jammu led by its chairman Zorawar Singh Jamwal on Tuesday took out massive protest against brutal killing of seven Amarnath Yatris by Pakistan sponsored terrorists in Anantnag area of Kashmir Valley.
Demonstration of Team Jammu activists passed through different bazaars of the walled city amid shouting of anti-government and anti-Pakistan slogans. Activists also urged shopkeepers to down their shutters against gruesome killing of Amarnath Yatris by the Islamic terrorists.

Addressing people at different places, Zorawar said that attack on Amarnath Yatris has exposed the so-called security arrangements made by the Centre as well as State Government for this year’s Yatra.
He said that biggest terror attack on Yatra was executed by terrorists in the year 2000.
“For the last 17 years no such incident has taken place. This year terrorists managed to target Yatra due to pro-militant policies being adopted by the PDP-BJP Government in the State”, he said and pointed out that due to political reasons BJP has given its consent to shift security forces, especially army from the hinter land south Kashmir and after systemic shifting of the army, terrorists have managed to gain ground in south Kashmir”.
Taking a dig at lame excuse shamelessly given by the BJP leaders that targeted bus was not registered with Shri Amarnath Yatra Shrine Board (SASB), Jamwal regretted that instead of admitting biggest security lapses, the shameless BJP leadership was trying to befool the people.
He said that it was not the question whether the targeted bus was registered or un-registered the biggest question is total failure of the administration to provide security to the Yatris.
He questioned, “How can authorities say that the bus was unregistered when it is officially confirmed that the victims were returning after having Darshans of the Holy Cave Shrine? And furthermore, if such are the claims of Coalition Government, then how safe are the tourists in Kashmir valley? They are not registered like Amarnath Yatris.”
Zorawar said that PDP-BJP Government in J and K has become biggest security threat because BJP has compromised with the security and integrity of the nation just for power. He pointed out that during the last two and half years, many steps have been taken by the government to encourage anti-national forces.
