Key religious leaders in the Kashmir Valley, including the grand mufti, on Saturday condemned the targeted attacks on members of minority communities in the valley.

Shiite cleric Aga Syed Hassan Mosavi, chairman of J&K Anjuman-e-Sharie Shian, spoke out against the killing of minorities, especially teachers.

At a meeting in Srinagar, several religious leaders adopted a joint resolution, saying that “plurality is a basic and fundamental fact of Kashmiri society and everyone must understand this pluralistic nature of Kashmiri society.”

The resolution unanimously condemned the targeted killings of members of the Pandit community and non-locals.

“They [religious leaders] expressed solidarity with them,” a statement read.

The leaders called for unity among the communities to “thwart the evil designs of vested interests and called for inter-religious dialogue across Kashmir to bridge the gaps”.

The resolution also called for the early release of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq from house arrest.

Grand Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam called the killing of members of minorities an “act of cowardice”. “We condemn such acts as they breed hatred between minority and majority communities. I call on people to maintain brotherhood and defeat these evil designs,” he said.

Civil society in Kashmir has called the targeted killing of innocent people an “attack on universal human values”.

“We call on all people of Kashmir to strongly condemn such acts and extend their full support and cooperation to the employees of the minority community for their safety and protection,” said the Group of Concerned Citizens (GCC), a company civilian based in the valley. body composed of former bureaucrats, academicians and retired judges, said

The Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCC&I), the main trade body in the valley, has called the bloodshed by innocent civilians “unacceptable and against humanity”.

“It goes against the spirit and basic concept of Kashmiryat. This has again tarnished the image of Kashmiri people and goes against cultural ethics,” a KCCI spokesperson said.
