Srinagar: All Parties Sikh Coordination Committee (APSCC) on Thursday condemned the killing of two teachers by militants and urged the government employees from the Sikh community to boycott work till their safety is ensured.
“APSCC strongly condemns the killing of two government teachers Supinder Kaur and Deepak Chand at Eidgah in downtown Srinagar on Thursday,” APSCC chairman Jagmohan Singh Raina said in a statement.
He said the killings are part of a conspiracy to create a wedge among the majority and minority communities living in the Kashmir Valley.
Raina asked people to be vigilant about the elements who want to exploit the situation for their own ulterior political motives.
“The Sikh youth who are working in different government departments should boycott their duties and sit at their homes as long as their security is not ensured by the government,” he said.
Raina asked members of the majority Muslim community to intervene and secure the lives of the minority community members.
