Condemns attack on Amarnath pilgrims
The Central Secretariat meeting strongly condemned the brutal attack on the pilgrims returning from Amarnath. There is no justification for any group or force under any circumstances to lay hands on innocents. Along with those involved in the attack, those who masterminded it also must not be allowed to escape. At the same time, authorities must not allow camps with divisive interests using the incident as an excuse for their hate mongering and vilification of Kashmiri people.

The meeting while conveying condolence to the families demanded an impartial and thorough investigation going deep into all aspects
