All India Muslim Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President Asaduddin Owaisi slammed the Indian government over the targeted killings of Kashmiri Pandits in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), alleging that the Modi government has failed to provide security to the community.

His remarks came after a Kashmiri Pandit was killed and his brother was injured in IIOJK’s Shopian district.

Owaisi alleged that the BJP-appointed L-G in the occupied territory has proved to be unsuccessful, adding that removal of Article 370 did not help, as the Centre has failed to provide security to Kashmiri Pandits in the Valley.

“This is another example of the failure of the Narendra Modi government. The responsibility to safeguard the lives of Kashmiri Pandits in J&K lies with the BJP and the Central government,” Owaisi said.
