Terrorism still there as border with Pakistan porous: Farooq

Date:

Srinagar, Jun 11: Conference President, Farooq Abdullah Tuesday said though the security scenario in  and was good, terrorism was still alive as the border with Pakistan remains permeable.

“The security (scenario) is good. Terrorism is there. Our border is permeable and there cannot be control everywhere,” Abdullah told reporters in Baramulla when asked about the Reasi terror attack in which nine pilgrims were killed.

The former chief minister of the erstwhile state of  Jammu and Kashmir condemned the attackers.

“I regret that innocent pilgrims, unarmed people, were attacked. We all, the people of the state, should condemn it and pray that god sends the people who did this to hell,” he said.

Referring to the annual Amaranth Yatra which is scheduled to begin later this month, Abdullah said the people of J-K should be ready for the pilgrimage.

“We have always welcomed it and made attempts to make yatris comfortable. God willing, the yatra will be held in a cordial atmosphere this year also,” he said.

Asked about Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif's congratulatory post on X on Narendra Modi's third term as PM, the NC president said while the two counterparts may keep congratulating each other, they should act upon the bonhomie.
