Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said she “would not allow bloodshed in South Kashmir or let it become a battleground” as she visited the sister of a suspected militant who was reportedly beaten up by the police.

Mehbooba, who visited the interiors of Pulwama, objected to the use of force on civilians and harassment of public, saying, “Excessive use of force is responsible for the unrest and pushing youth towards the gun.” The former chief minister also visited a shrine at Lassipora Pulwama and said people’s support for political process “does not deserve to be treated harshly”.

She also urged Governor Satya Pal Malik to take action against the policemen and ensure that such incidents don’t happen in future.

Commenting on the Class 10 results announced on Saturday, Mehbooba said: “Yesterday’s class 10 results indicate the aspirations of youth, mostly from South Kashmir. There is an urge for moving ahead and kids have dreams to live up to. We need to work collectively to offer a future to our own generation and ensure they stay away from violence and refrain those who push our youth to the wall and violence.”







Mehbooba’s critics, however, accused her of trying to strengthen her base ahead of the assembly elections through the visit.
