The Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) Chairman Yasin Khan has welcomed the decision of Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industry to distance itself from communal forces, who have called “pro-rapist bandh” in the region tomorrow.
In a statement, Khan who also heads the Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation (KTMF), said the call for humanity from Kashmir Inc has been warmly reciprocated by the Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industries President Rakesh Gupta and other like-minded in Jammu.
He said they have publicly refused to support the call of fringe elements to observe Jammu bandh in solidarity with the rapists, who raped and murdered an eight-year-old girl.
“By observing that the Kathua incident concerns humanity and can’t be seen through communal prism, the JCCI has upheld the cause of humanity and we welcome it with an open heart. It is truly a heart-warming gesture,” Khan said.
He said the development will help improve ties between the twin regions and contribute towards peace and prospect in the region.
