BJP National Vice-President, National Vice Chairman, Indian Red Cross Society, former MP, Rajya Sabha & Prabhari J&K unit, Avinash Rai Khanna, condoled the sad and untimely demise of Gowhar Hussain Bhat the youth leader of BJP and the District President of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha from District Shopian, who was killed by militants in a cold blooded murder, when he was abducted from his home and his body was found in pool of blood in nearby forest.
Avinash Rai Khanna condemned this cowardly act of militants, where they have cut down a young tree which could blossom to bail out Kashmir from the present crisis being leashed out by the restless neighbor from across the border. He said that the peace loving people of Kashmir have to openly oppose these perpetrators of violence and lead Kashmir on the path shown by the Suffis and Saints, so that Kashmir be developed as the example of brotherhood, love and progress once again.
Avinash Rai Khanna said that the blood of the noble soul of the martyr will not go in vain and if the perpetuators of violence think that they could silence the voice of the nationalist forces by the use of gun, they are wrong and the youth of Kashmir has started to realize that the true development lies in the maintenance of peace and today the Kashmiri youth is doing commendable job in almost every field, which will open up new era of growth, development and peace for them and once again the Kashmir will be viewed as the heaven on earth.
Khanna expressed sympathies with the bereaved family and assured that the entire party and the nation is with them in this hour of grief and sorrow.
