Sentiments are hurt, but refrain from violence: J-K Govt

The state cabinet meeting chaired by Chief minister Omar Abdullah this evening took stock of incidents of law and order breakdown in parts of the state which were prompted by reports about the alleged incident of desecration of the holy book in the US, an official spokesman said.

He said the cabinet was unanimous in condemning the alleged acts as reported by an international news channel.

The spokesman said the cabinet also expressed its understanding of the genuinely hurt sentiments of the people on this account.

However, it was decided to make a fervent appeal to the people of the state not to take law in their own hands while staging protests against the alleged incidents which only result in an avoidable loss of life and property, the spokesman added.
Fresh violence today claimed 12 lives and left 70 injured with protestors torching several government properties and a private school following reports of the alleged sacrilege act.
