Srinagar: Stating that Moulvi Showkat Ahmad Shah’s good intentions cannot be doubted, the BJP Thursday said it will ask Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh to order a probe into the killing of Moulvi Showkat Ahmad Shah to expose the conspiracy behind his murder.
“We will raise his assignation issue with Home Minister and also with Prime Minister and urge them to order a probe to unveil the conspiracy that led to Shah’s killing,” Singh told the family members of slain religious leader.
Former BJP President Rajnath Singh visited Shah’s family at Lal Bazaar here. He was accompanied by Ravi Shankar Prasad and other members of the BJP delegation. The delegation is currently on a study tour to Jammu and Kashmir. This is the first time that senior BJP leaders have visited the family of any slain separatist leader.
“His good intentions cannot be doubted. He was a noble human being,” Singh said. The leader said his party strongly condemns the killing of the cleric and it cannot be forgotten that he had dedicated his entire life to social good.
“No one can forget his immense contribution especially in education sector. He advocated peaceful resolution of Kashmir and was a peace loving soul,” Singh said. He said that the BJP delegation had come with a message of peace and was willing to meet anyone who advocates peace in the Valley.
The delegation also visited the Gurudawara at Chattipadshahi in Rainawari where Sikhs had gathered on Baisakhi. (AIP)
