Srinagar, Sep 19, CNS: J&K People’s Forum condemned the threat of economic blockade to Kashmir valley given out by Leela Karan Sharma a Jammu based VHP Leader. In a statement issued here today the Forum General Secretary   M. M. Shuja has termed it as a part of larger agenda of VHP to divide the State of J&K on communal basis. Any move to enforce economic blockade to the valley will not only disturb the peace and order in the state but will also pose a serious threat to the democratic institutions established by law. He added that the people of Kashmir are experiencing serious hardships for the last several decades and their courage should not be tested every now and then. Imposition of beef ban is a debatable issue as the law on the subject has already been rejected by society not only in the state but in many other states in India. The forum warned VHP Leader to desist from listing the social and religious sentiments of the people of Kashmir valley. He urged upon the state government to register a case against Sharma for promoting hatred and communal tension. (CNS)
