In another incident of target killing, a 40-year-old man was shot dead by terrorists in Pulwama district of South Kashmir. The deceased has been identified as Sanjay Sharma, who worked as a security guard.
"These incidents only benefit BJP whether it is in Haryana or Kashmir. BJP has failed in protecting the lives of minorities here. They only use minorities to show normalcy in the valley," Mufti tweeted.
She also said that the BJP uses such incidents to "degrade the image of Muslims in the country".
"BJP use these types of incidents to degrade the image of Muslims in the country. I condemn this act. This is not the behaviour of the Kashmiri people. All these acts show the failures of the Government," the People's Democratic Party chief further said.
