Addvising militant leadership to realise the futility of armed conflict, main opposition National Conference (NC) working president Omar Abdullah said that 29 years of violence in Jammu and Kashmir has achieved nothing.
The former chief minister was commenting on statement of Inspector General of Police (IGP) Muneer Ahmad Khan that militant leadership has to be eliminated because they also misguide the children of the state and lure them into violence.
Security forces in a brief and clean operation killed Lashker-e-Toiba (LeT) chief Abu Islmail and his associate Abu Qasim, residents of Pakistan, who were involved in attack on Amarnath yatra bus in Anantnag that left eight pilgrims dead and over 20 others injured in July this year.
Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Mr Abdullah said, “ At some point the militant leadership has to realise the futility of armed conflict.
Twenty-nine years of violence in J&K has achieved nothing”.
