Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti has said the terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims in Anantnag was a “blot on all Muslims and Kashmiris”.

While visiting the injured in a hospital in Anantnag on Monday, she said the head of every Kashmiri hangs in shame over the incident.

“Pilgrims come to Kashmir every year for the yatra despite all difficulties. And seven people died today. I have no words to condemn it. I hope the security forces and the Jammu and Kashmir police arrest the perpetrators forthwith and take stern action against them,” the chief minister told reporters.

“This incident is a blot on all Kashmiris and Muslims. We will not keep quite till we bring the culprits to book,” Mehbooba said.

She said efforts will be made to ensure that quick action is taken against the culprits and justice is done.

The chief minister said seven people, including six women, were killed in the dastardly attack. Those killed and injured in the attack were on a bus carrying pilgrims from Valsad district of Gujarat.

The bus came under terrorists’ fire near Khanabal in Anantnag district.
