Bloody Monday leaves 16 dead across Kashmir

Sixteen people were killed Monday as furious mobs clashed with security forces and attacked government property across the Kashmir Valley in protests that were initially triggered by a report that copies of the Quran were desecrated in the US.   

New Delhi: The government Monday appealed to the people of Jammu and Kashmir, especially the youth, to "refrain from violent protests and maintain peace and order" and said they are "re-starting the process of dialogue".

The Cabinet Committee on Security, which is chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, hoped that dialogue would be able to "address issues such as the trust deficit and governance deficit".

"The CCS reiterates government intention to restart the process of dialogue with different sections of people of Jammu and Kashmir. Towards this end, the CCS has decided to convene an all-political party meet at New Delhi on Wednesday, September 15, and elicit their views on the way forward," said a note issued after the three-hour meeting that met to review the situation in the state.

"Government hopes following the all-party meeting, it will be able to engage the people of Jammu and Kashmir and also take certain initiatives and measures that will build confidence among the people of Jammu and Kashmir," it said.

The one-page note was handed out by Home Secretary G.K. Pillai after the three-hour- long meeting at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's 7 Race Course Road official residence.

The meeting was held as the Kashmir Valley is on the boil again with 16 people killed in clashes with security forces Monday. With the latest deaths, 86 civilians, mostly teenagers and youth, have been killed in the cycle of violence of street protests and retaliatory firing by security forces since June 11.

Noting that it was "deeply distressed by the turn of events since Eid and especially by the event that took place today following certain rumours", the CCS "expressed its profound grief at the loss of life and offers its sincere condolences to the bereaved families."

"The government has always held the belief that the dialogue and discussion is the only way forward to find an honourable and lasting solution.

"On the past too, the UPA (United Progressive Alliance) government had taken several initiatives to hold the dialogue with different political parties and political groups including the Hurriyat those efforts did yield some results," it added.

"It was and remains the intention of the UPA government to restart the process of dialogue. The dialogue can embrace all issues that agitate the minds of people of Jammu and Kashmir, especially the youth. The dialogue can address issues such as the trust deficit and governance deficit," it added.

"Meanwhile, the CCS appeals to the people of Jammu and Kashmir, especially the youth to refrain from violent protests and maintain peace and order. Every life that is lost and every person that is injured, beside causing immense grief, add to the complexity of the situation.

"Government sincerely hopes that the people of Jammu and Kashmir will heed this appeal and cooperate with the government in its efforts to ensure justice, dignity, honour and peace in Jammu and Kashmir," it added.

The meeting was attended by Defence Minister A.K. Antony, Home Minister P. Chidambaram, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee and External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna.
