Jammu: A day after Hizbul Mujahideen's poster boy Burhan Muzzafar Wani was shot dead in Kokernag, Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Saturday praised the security forces and said all sections of society must come together in the fight against terrorism, regardless of their political ideology.
"We are proud of our security forces. They have achieved a major success on the counter terrorism front", Singh told reporters in Jammu.
"The fight against terrorism is universal and it has to be fought collectively and all sections of society regardless of their ideology must come together and unitedly fight it," he said.
"We appeal for maintenance of peace. The fight against terrorism is collective and requires a united effort of all stake holders in J&K," he added.
On providing security at living places for minorities, including colonies of Kashmiri Pandit employees in the Valley, he said, "the protection and safety of these places is responsibility of the Government and society. They should be provided full security."
