Srinagar: PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday visited the family of slain religious leader and Jamiat-e-Ahli Hadees head Moulvi Showkat Ahmed Shah and said his killing had deprived Kashmir a respectable voice of moderation.

Mehbooba met Shah's mother, wife and children and consoled them in their hour of grief.

The PDP president said Shah?s killing had deprived Kashmir a highly respectable voice of moderation and religious knowledge.

She said violence had already caused great distress and damage to Kashmir and the people had consciously rejected it as a means of achieving political goals.

Mehbooba asked the government to probe Shah's killing and bring to book all those involved in the heinous crime.

Shah, a prominent religious figure, was killed in an IED blast outside a mosque in Maisuma area here on April 8.
