In a first, PDP slams militants for killing party worker

Early Times Report
Jammu, May 20: At last, the PDP seems to have been feeling the heat of militancy in Kashmir, as the party on Monday ridiculed militants for firing at a party worker.
As per reports, a PDP spokesperson lashed out at the killers of a PDP activist in south Kashmir's Kulgam. The PDP said that the party workers in Kashmir put their neck on the line and have to suffer for their beliefs. "Heartbreaking. Party workers in Kashmir put their neck on the line & have to suffer for their beliefs. Ironic that such mindless violence is justified in the name of Islam in the month of Ramzan. Shame on these cowards who call themselves Muslims," the party tweeted.
Pertinently, a PDP activist Muhammad Jamal who was shot at by unidentified gunmen on Sunday evening shot at Zungalpora village of Kulgam succumbed to his injuries in SKIMS, Srinagar.
This is after a very long time that the PDP has been quite vocal in supporting militants and defending their activities has come out with such words against them.
Last year on October 30 Jammu and Kashmir Governor stated that he admits the fact that the recruitment of militants witnessed a spike and also those pelting stones too found it easier to attack the security forces in the PDP-BJP coalition rule.
"I have not gone to Jammu and Kashmir with the BJP's band wagon. I will work as per the constitution and as far as the previous government in the state is concerned, there must be some reason that the support from the PDP was withdrawn. And what we are reaping at present is what the coalition did in the state but at that time those who were in alliance partners in the government should have reacted to the mistakes being done. Today, I am not answerable to their wrongs," Governor Malik had said in an interview then.
On February 4, this year, the party issued a detailed statement in which it objected to Prime Minister's remark of breaking the backbone of militancy. The PDP predicted the policy will fail to yield any desired results. The party even equated the situation in Kashmir with Afghanistan and pitched for dialogue with militants again.
"We have to learn from what is happening around the world including Afghanistan where there is a thrust on dialogue and Pakistan has been counted as a major partner. Dialogue is the only way forward and it is only through non-confrontational approach that we will be able to give our coming generations a safer and tranquil place to live. Making peace of graveyard prevalent had never worked and will never work," the party said in a statement while reacting to Modi's Srinagar speech.
