Describing the terror attack on that killed seven pilgrims returning from Amarnath as a “cowardly act of terror”, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said Tuesday that all sections in Kashmir had condemned the attack, which “shows the spirit of Kashmiriyat is very much alive”.

The Home Minister then took to Twitter to react strongly to a tweet from @shuchikalra, who responded to his remark on Kashmiriyat by posting: “Who gives a f*** about the spirit of Kashmiriyat at this moment? It is not your job to placate. Just drag those cowards out and cull them.”

Singh, whose official handle was tagged in that tweet, posted: “Ms Kalra I certainly do. It is absolutely my job to ensure peace and tranquility in all parts of the country. All Kashmiris are not terrorists.” Following this, the Twitter account, listed under the name Shuchi Singh Kalra, was found deleted.

Earlier, Singh said, “I am pained at the loss of lives of Amarnath pilgrims. But I salute the people of Kashmir as all sections of society have condemned the attack. It shows the spirit of Kashmiriyat is very much alive.”

“I am pained at the loss of lives of Amarnath pilgrims. But I salute the people of Kashmir as all sections of society have condemned the attack,” he told reporters in New Delhi.

Seven Amarnath pilgrims, including six women, were killed and 19 injured when terrorists attacked a bus in Kashmir’s Anantnag district.

Many came forward and echoed his thought and few also lauded Singh for his response.

The home minister on Tuesday reviewed the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir and ordered enhanced security for pilgrims visiting Amarnath cave shrine.

In the meeting, sources said, Singh directed that those terrorists responsible for the attack should be hunt down soon. The pilgrimage to the cave shrine of Lord Shiva, located in the Himalayas at an altitude of 12,756 feet, started on June 29 and will conclude on August 7.

      This Home Minister is the most ineffective.No strategy only reports and meetings. Since he is from Lucknow he speaks Hindi with sweet Urdu syrup.He has no work except to promote Hindi in non BIMARU states. 1) Hum iski kadi ninda kartein hain 2) Hamare jawan ke hosle buland hain 3) Hum atank wadion ko bardash nahin karenge This is his typical style. Jawans are still lacking good equipments. They are fighting with INSAS rifles designed by DRDO duly rejected by ARMY.But forceably fighting. Civilians and Jawans are dying. No jail for anti nationals. Khangrass was better

            The islamic civil society is not a match for the acts of terrorism using ISLAM. Justifying explanations are of no use the teachers of the terrorists must be taken to task with a heavy Handed action so are their kit and kin.

              Mr Rajnath singh has realized that India is not Hindu property. If Hindu try to show power on Muslims than Hindus will have to face strong response from Muslims. So Hindus are now bending before Muslims.

                These so called Yatris come in huge numbers and pollute the atmosphere and environment here in Kashmir. Our pristine lakes , vales, glades, mountains and glaciers have to bear the burden of these dirty, uncouth, ill mannered beggers masquerading as ' tourists ". First of all, the number and time period for this so called 'Yatra " should be restricted to 5,000 people for only 15 days. Every Yatri should be charged a fee of 10,000 Rupees as Environmental Protection Fee. The Yatris should register themselves with the Hurriyat which will give them protection after they pay the Registration Fee. All Yatris must wear Green dress and carry Green flags ,so as to differentiate them from occupier Indian Forces.
