Srinagar: Grand Mufti of Jammu and Kashmir Bashiruddin Ahmad has asked all US citizens in the Valley to "immediately leave" the state in wake of the controversial video which has hurt the sentiment of Muslim community.

"The US citizens visiting Kashmir should leave immediately as the sentiments of the Muslims have been hurt by these pictures," Ahmad said.

“People are really agitated; I have told American tourists to leave for their own safety,” he added.

The government doesn’t have control over people when they are agitated, Ahmad said, adding the tourists who are here must be protected.

The Grand Mufti said the blasphemous content on Internet about the Prophet is highly condemnable.
