Former Jammu & Kashmir CM Mehbooba Mufti urged the Centre to announce ceasefire in the Valley so that the people can observe the holy month in peace.
Mehbooba tweeted, “Request GoI to cease crackdowns, & search operations during Ramzan this year so that people arent subjected to harassment & can observe the holy month in peace.Last year’s ceasefire helped in providing a huge sense of relief. Hope electoral compulsions are put aside.”

Last year, the Central Government directed security forces not to launch operations in Jammu and Kashmir during Ramzan so that it will help Muslims observe the holy month in a “peaceful environment”. Later the BJP led Central Government ended the ceasefire after a month as militant attacks continued during the period.
Twitter users, have gone ahead to ask the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, if terrorists will stop their terror activities during the days Hindus celebrate their holy festivals. Few other twitter used went ahead to explain how Islamic fundamentalists have used the holy month of Ramzan to wage wars.
