A Brutal, Shocking Act of Cowardice to Stop Progress towards Normalcy; Mushawarat Condemns Nandimarg Massacre and Calls Upon People and Govt. of Pakistan to Condemn such Acts of Terrorism and Stop Aid and Support to Militants
New Delhi, 24 March, 2003: Shri Syed Shahabuddin, President of the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM), has issued the following Statement:
"The All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) strongly condemns the cold-blooded massacre of innocent men, women and children by the militants in village Nandimarg in Pulwana district of J&K. A brutal act of cowardice, it shocks the conscience of the nation, causes a setback to the process of restoration of normalcy in the state.
The AIMMM conveys its heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved families and calls upon the State Government to spare no effort to track down the culprits and to take all possible steps to protect religious minorities in the state.
The AIMMM appeals to the militants not to engage in such heinous crimes which can only bring a bad name to the cause they presume to serve and to the religion they claim to profess.
The AIMMM also calls upon the people of Pakistan to condemn such acts of terrorism without any reservation and the Government of Pakistan to stop all aid and support to the militants."
