Srinagar: Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (GPC) Saturday said that the minority community members won’t attend the duty unless the government assures their protection in Kashmir valley.
Addressing a press conference, General Secretary Navtej Singh alleged that though there were many inputs and incidents in the past about targeting of the minorities yet the government didn’t provide any security to them.
Singh accused the government of failing to safeguard the minority community in Jammu and Kashmir.
“We demand from the government to provide security to our government employees and assure the minority community that they are safe in the valley,” he said.
Singh said that the majority should come forward and condemn the attack on the minority communities.
“It would have been better if the majority community would have participated in yesterday’s protest,” Singh said. “Unless government assures security to the minority, none of them would attend the government duty.”
