The Jammu and Kashmir government on Wednesday conveyed a message to militants via social media that looting banks was not a holy war. The PDP government is under attack by the Opposition and others over the law and order situation in the Valley.
South Kashmir’s Pulwama district, which is a stronghold of the PDP since its inception is also a hot bed of militancy too and recently two banks were looted in the area.
PDP in a series of tweets said, “This money is from poor people who keep their hard earned savings in the bank.” “Looting banks and robbing poor people of their savings cannot be any ‘holy war’,” PDP said.
Opposition National Conference has a role in provoking the current instability in the state. They are stoking the fires for their own political game, the PDP further said.
