After Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ideologue M.G. Vaidya today said that he wasn't shocked over the Amarnath terror attack, Jammu and Kashmir activist Sushil Pandit said that it's the biggest tragedy if the situation does not apall him.

"If Hindus in India were not secure and it's not a matter of shock for Vaidya, then it itself is the biggest tragedy. Such statements are not good," he told ANI.

Earlier in the day, Vaidya said that he was "not shocked over the terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims."

"In the valley, with around four to five lakh people, where Kashmiri Pandits cannot live, there the life of a Hindu is not secure as well," Vaidya said.

Meanwhile, the mortal remains of the Amarnath Yatra pilgrims, who lost their lives in the attack, were brought to Surat, Gujarat.

Seven people lost their lives and 15 others were injured yesterday when a group of terrorists attacked a bus in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag.

The incident occurred at around 8.20 p.m. yesterday between Baltal and Mir Bazar. Reportedly, the bus was neither a part of a convoy nor registered with the shrine board.

The 90th and 40th battalions of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) have been deployed at the spot to prevent further untoward incidents.

People all across the country are condemning the incident, with some even staging protests against Pakistan.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Pranab Mukherjee have also strongly condemned the incident.

J-K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti summoned an emergency meeting of her cabinet to review the security situation across the state.

Inspector General of Police (Kashmir Range) Muneer Khan has said that the attack on Amaranth Yatra pilgrims was carried out by Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

Meanwhile, President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have condemned the attack in the strongest terms.

The Delhi Police has also issued a high security across the national capital on Tuesday.
