New Delhi: The Centre on Wednesday asked the security forces not to launch operations in Jammu and Kashmir during the month of Ramzan.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh has informed about about Centre's decision to J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.

 

The Ministry of Home Affairs, in its tweet, said: “Decision taken to help the peace loving Muslims observe Ramzan in a peaceful environment.”

However, the security forces reserve the right to retaliate if attacked or if essential to protect the lives of innocent people, the ministry further said.

 

The ministry also said that the Government expects everyone to cooperate in the initiative to observe Ramzan in a peaceful manner.

In another tweet, the ministry said that it is important to isolate the forces that bring a bad name to Islam by resorting to mindless violence and terror.

 

J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti welcomed the order and took to Twitter to thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh for their personal intervention in this regard.

Mehbooba further said that such decision will in future create a peaceful environment for a sustained dialogue.

The holy moth of Ramzan is likely to start tomorrow or Friday depending on the sighting of moon.
