first_imgThe advisory to Amarnath Yatra pilgrims and tourists to exit Jammu and Kashmir due to terror threats is extremely angering, Shiv Sena leader Aaditya Thackeray said on Friday. In a series of tweets, Mr. Thackeray said he has “full faith” that the Modi government and India’s armed forces will “purge” terrorists who threaten pilgrims and tourists. He tweeted, “Im sure we have the strength to purge out terrorists from J&K at the will of our Govt and not give into these threats, while ensuring safety of every pilgrim.” His remarks came after the Army cited intelligence inputs to claim that Pakistan-based terrorists are planning to target the ongoing Amarnath Yatra, prompting the Jammu and Kashmir administration to ask the yatris and tourists to “curtail” their stay in the Valley and leave the State immediately. Stating that weapons and explosives have been recovered along the yatra route, a top Army official said security forces are geared up to foil any attempt to attack the pilgrimage. The yatra commenced on July 1 and is to conclude on August 15.last_img
