During his visit to the state, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh along with Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti addressed a crowd of 6,000 sportspersons at Indoor Sports Stadium in Srinagar.

Singh also applauded the leadership of Secretary Jammu Kashmir State Sports Council (JKSSC) Waheed Ur Rehman Parra for channelizing the energy of the state’s youth in a positive direction. While Mufti told the youngsters and sportspersons present in the stadium that they are the future of the state.

Later in the day, talking in a press conference, Singh said that they are open to talks with all, and they don’t need anyone like-minded to talk but right-minded. He said that all stone-throwing cases against children in the state will be withdrawn.

“This is why we have withdrawn cases against first-time stone pelter,” said Singh. “The Centre has withdrawn cases against 10,000 stone-pelting children of the state. Militants should understand that terrorism has no religion.”

Slamming the resistance leadership, Singh said, “They can play any kind of politics, but they should not play with future of children, these children not only children of Kashmir but also of India, they are an asset.”

Singh is on a two-day long visit in the state to review the ceasefire situation and safety measures for the Amarnath Yatra.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
