Altaf Bukhari condemns explosion that injured 28 children

SRINAGAR, Feb 13: Former finance minister Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Wednesday expressed deep pain and grief over the mysterious explosion in a Pulwama school that caused severe injuries to  28 children.

In a statement issued here, Bukhari said that such reprehensible incidents are condemnable and must be probed thoroughly so that the culprits are exposed and booked under law.

“I express my heartfelt sympathy and solidarity with the parents whose children have sustained grievous injuries in the incident,” Bukhari said, while urging the Governor to order a time bound probe into the incident.

The former finance minister observed that such incidents add to the already prevailing insecure atmosphere for the citizens especially the elderly persons, women and children who fear to tread outside their homes.

“I condemn Wednesday’s blast in the strongest terms,” Bukhari said, adding that attacks that affect schools are unacceptable. “All schools are, and must remain, zones of peace,” he added further.

“Sustaining fatal injuries by the children who were studying for a better future is appalling,” Bukhari said. “Such incidents that affect Kashmiri children’s life and education show disregard for fundamental principles of humanity. No cause can justify these incidents,” he remarked.

The former minister wished a healthy recovery to all children injured in the explosion and called on the governor led administration to take the necessary measures to ensure that education is provided in safe and secure environments to all children across Kashmir.
