Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti today asked the civil and police administration to prepare a roadmap for healing the wounds of people who have been victimized in the agonizing situation prevailing in Kashmir over the past four months.
“Kashmir has witnessed a very painful and frustrating situation over the past few months. Now as the situation is returning to normalcy, we have to prepare a roadmap to pull our people out of this agonizing and complicated situation and heal their wounds,” Ms Mehbooba said.
Recounting the events of the past four months, the Chief Minister asked the civil and police administration to reach out to the families of those who died or suffered injuries in the ongoing situation and also devise a strategy so that their miseries could be lessened. “We have to support the affected families whatever can we can,” she said.
“Those who died or suffered injuries are our own people. Reach out to their families. I should get the exact figures so that we can take a decision about their future. It will be good to involve elders and local Auqaf Committees in the process,” she said. Expressing concern over local youths joining militant groups, the Chief Minister said the civil and police administration should take steps to wean away such youths from the path of violence with compassion. “Such misadvised youth must be given an opportunity to return to normal life and provided an honorable livelihood.
