J&K: BJP burns Afzal Guru`s effigy, protests blast

BJP in Kashmir hit out at political parties demanding clemency for Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

Jammu: BJP in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday hit out
at political parties demanding clemency for Parliament attack
convict Afzal Guru and took out a protest rally against the
Delhi High Court blast that killed 13 persons.

Led by convenor of the party`s legal cell S Sharma, BJP
activists took out the rally in the city and raised
anti-government and anti-Afzal Guru slogans.

They also burnt Guru`s effigy and demanded that the death
row prisoner be hanged as the order of the Supreme Court.

The party expressed sympathy with the families of the
victims of Delhi High court blast and demanded adequate
compensation for the families of the deceased and stringent
action against the culprits.

BJP spokesperson Nirmal Kamal urged strict action against
those political parties and politicians which are demanding
clemency for Afzal Guru.

He said it will set a wrong precedence if those guilty of
attack on Parliament are allowed to go scot free.

The party has also taken strong view of the statements
being issued by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah in "favour" of
Guru.

If there is no check imposed by the Centre on such
provocative statements being issued by official functionaries
of the state, there is an apprehension that Delhi like blasts
can take place also in other parts of country including Jammu
and Kashmir, Kamal said.
