Politicians across the state have condemned the barbaric attack on an army school in Pakistan, in which more than 120 schoolchildren were killed on Tuesday.
While Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah took to micro-blogging site Twitter calling the act "barbaric and heartbreaking", Peoples Democratic Party's Mehbooba Mufti said, "Atrocity of this proportion outraged feelings of every human being."
"What terrible, heart-breaking images of the attack in #Peshawar. Inhuman & barbaric don't even begin to describe the perpetrators," Abdullah wrote. "Schools are supposed to be places of sanctuary and today these Godless animals have converted one into a killing field," he added.
Abdullah further condemned those who said "Pakistan got what it deserved". "And to my fellow countrymen who say Pakistan got what it deserves-SHAME ON YOU. They are children likes yours & mine," Abdullah tweeted.
Strongly condemning the attack, Mehbooba termed it as the worst-ever form of barbarism and crime against the humanity.
"My heart and thoughts go out with the parents and families of children who have lost their lives in the attack carried in Peshawar, Pakistan," she said while expressing condolence and sympathies with the bereaved families.
She added that such attacks were crime against the entire humanity and must be condemned in strongest words. "This is the worst crime that could have been perpetrated against humanity. Such attacks are sources of shame," she said.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq also condemned the heinous act saying there was no place for such acts in Islam.
"There is no place for such acts of terrorism in Islam. Such acts should be condemned no matter where it happens and who the perpetrators are," Mirwaiz said in a statement.
