India's Amartnath Pilgrimage Facts: Terror Attack On Pilgrims, Why Hindus Visit The Himalayan Caves?
Meanwhile, condemning the terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims in Kashmir, a top Hindu-American body in the U.S. has urged the Trump admin to clampdown on Pakistan for supporting terrorist groups carrying out attacks in India.
The United States has strongly condemned the terrorist attack on Amarnath pilgrims in Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir on July 10 in which seven pilgrims lost their lives and 15 others were injured. Before that at around 8:30 pm terrorists started firing at a police auto which was stationed at a security check-post.
The Jammu and Kashmir police also told the Centre that it had definite leads on the module that hit the pilgrims and had a comprehensive plan to nab them, a senior union home ministry official, said quoting from the report.
Police said the attack began with gunmen unleashing a hail of bullets on an armored police vehicle and, soon after, on a nearby police patrol.
It appears the bus in question was not registered with the authorities running the pilgrimage, and was not a part of the pilgrims' convoy for which tight security was provided.
Dubbing the attack on Amarnath Pilgrims an attack on most fundamental liberties, the White House on Wednesday condemned the attack.
Thackeray said that the attack on the pilgrims is a awful incident and such attacks on the the shrines of Hindu is only possible in India. This pilgrimage is annually on the radar of the terrorists.
"The bus was on way to Jammu from Baltal and was not part of the convoy".
On June 27, the United States designated Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin a "global terrorist", ahead of Narendra Modi's meeting with US President Donald Trump in Washington, DC.
The horrendous attack has sent shock waves across the country and invited reactions from many sections of the civil society as well whereby social media was used as a tool to vent out their outrage as well as resentment on the issue.
Kashmir, he said, has been proud of this tradition. "We condemn this cowardly terrorist attack and express our deep condolences to the families of the dead and prayers for injured", said, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind General Secretary Maulana Mahmood Madani. We have also identified the people who drove them to their spot and who brought them their weapons.
So far, more than 1.5 lakh pilgrims have visited the cave shrine, which is located in the mountainous region of south Kashmir.
