Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir unit of CPI(M) on Thursday said the issue of security of Amarnath Yatra should not be politicised as it increments the element of uncertainty to the annual pilgrimage which is integral to Kashmir ethos.

"The Amarnath Yatra is integral to Kashmiri ethos and during the critical times, the people of Kashmir have whole heartedly cooperated to facilitate the smooth passage of the pilgrimage. It should not be politicised," state secretary CPI(M) M Y Tarigami said in a statement here.

Expressing dismay over the attempts being made to give "unnecessary hype" to the security of pilgrims, Tarigami said such assumptions are doing "no service either to the country or to the smooth passage of the pilgrimage".

"The security matters pertain to the experts of the field and the same should be left to them to take care of and not be discussed in public," he said.

He said the people of Kashmir need not to prove their religious tolerance and have always given their best in terms of hospitality and security of the pilgrims.
