Condemning the terror attack on Amarnath yatris in Anantnag on Monday evening, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said he is pained beyond words by the incident. He took to twitter to express condolence to those who lost their life in the incident and said that the country will not be bogged down by such dastardly attack.

“Pained beyond words on the dastardly attack on peaceful Amarnath Yatris in J&K. The attack deserves strongest condemnation from everyone,” tweeted the prime minister after the ghastly attack killed seven pilgrims. He also said that he has spoken to Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and the state Governor over the issue.

He has assured all possible assistance required. “My thoughts are with all those who lost their loved ones in the attack in J&K. My prayers with the injured. India will never get bogged down by such cowardly attacks & the evil designs of hate,” tweeted Modi.

Security has been beefed up at Jammu base camp following terror attack. Troops of 90 battalion & 40 battalion CRPF have also been rushed to the terror attack site.

The bus that was attacked had come from Sonamarg. The pilgrims were on their way back after visiting the Amarnath shrine. The police claimed the bus driver had violated rules for the pilgrimage, which state that no yatra vehicle should be on a highway after 7 pm.

      Why was this Prime Minister of ours not pained when innocent Muslims and dalits were killed mercilessly by Gav Rakshaks? Why did it take him time till the organisation of the "Not in my name" protest the world over, which he realised was a threat to his image world wide as a rogue nation?

              He feels pain ONLY when PUPPY comes below his car tyres. For Humans why should he has any feels? We humans drastically condemn every innocent killings be it in Amarnath or in post-Godhra pre-arranged riots or Godhra burns or 1984 innocent sikh killings. Lets united against those beasts who divide and rule us.

                Those beasts are none other than Brahmin pigs. Whereever they saw foot on their longest migration from Central Asia, they had destroyed empire after empire. That is exactly why they were driven out of Pa ki st an in 1946. They seduced Britishers and went on to become Prime Ministers of princely states after they were captured by British. Nobody cooperated with theBritish to prolong their rule than the brahmin dogs. The same street dogs claim themselves to be nationalists and true patriots exactly to coverup their past filth. Time for them to be kicked out east.
