Srinagar: The Concerned Citizens’ Group said that it strongly endorses the “joint demand of the political parties of Jammu and Kashmir for a ceasefire” during the sacred month of Ramazan.
“The security forces must observe the ceasefire strictly and should fire only when fired upon. The Government of India must initiate a purposeful dialogue in the meanwhile with all stakeholders in a time-bound manner,” the group said in a statement issued here.
‘We also appeal to all concerned in J&K to abjure violence during Ramazan as well as the ensuing Amarnath Yatra and respond positively to the initiative of the government if it takes such an initiative,” the statement added.
The members of CCG include: Yashwant Sinha, Wajahat Habibullah, Kapil Kak, Bharat Bhushan and Sushobha Barve.
