Ms Mufti accused China of interfering in the state’s security situation that has faced heightened terrorist activity and violent protests long-believed to be sponsored by Pakistan.
In this battle, external forces are involved in this. There is infiltration, militants are coming from outside and their efforts are to create unrest in Jammu and Kashmir… Unfortunately, even China has started interfering, terrorists are coming from outside.
During the meeting, Ms Mufti and the Home Minister also discussed ways to maintain peace in the Kashmir Valley together with increasing the security for Amarnath pilgrims. Rajnath Singh also informed Ms Mufti about the all party meeting regarding the attack.
In the state, almost four districts – Pulwama, Kulgam, Shopian and Anantnag – have been severely hit by violence and communal activities since Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter with security forces on July 8, 2016.
