President Condemns Attack on Amarnath Yatris in Jammu and Kashmir

The base camps have been under severe threat of terrorist attacks for decades.

As many as 21,000 paramilitary personnel in addition to state police forces have been deployed to provide security along pilgrimage routes.

The police say that the terrorists who were on bikes had attacked the bus twice.

According to police, the terrorists first attacked a police bullet-proof bunker at Botengoo.

Sharma also conveyed his condolences to the bereaved family while saying that the state and central government should ensure security for the pilgrims.

The number of security personnel killed in terrorist violence has almost doubled from 51 in the year preceding Wani's death to 98 in the following year, according to an analysis of data compiled by SATP. "I told the driver not to stop and just keep driving".

About 100,000 pilgrims have already completed the journey to the Amarnath shrine that began late last month and is due to end in late August under tight security.

"The terrorist attack on #AmarnathYatra is reprehensible and must be condemned", Rep Ted Poe (R-TX 2 District) tweeted.

Kashmir, he said, has been proud of this tradition.

He claimed that the role on sleeper cells of the Lashkar-e-Taiba or the Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence operating outside the state can not be ruled out.

"No Kashmiri has ever targeted any pilgrims, and this barbarity and atrocity is the trademark of Indian forces", the group's statement said. Muslim Kashmiris usually welcome the Hindu pilgrims who cross miles of frozen ground to reach a sacred giant column of ice - a stalagmite - that symbolizes the powers of the Hindu God, Lord Shiva.

In a fresh report to the Home Ministry on Wednesday, the J&K police said the attack was planned by Lashkar-e-Taiba "operation commander" Abu Ismail and he was supported by a Pakistani and two local militants. "Possibility of backlash can't be ignored", he said in a Twitter message. Security has also been beefed up in other states of the country following the worst attack on the annual pilgrimage since the year 2001. Bodies were brought to Gujarat's Surat airport along with the injured people.

Every attack is an attack on the idea of India. The bus was on its way to Jammu from Baltal when it came under attack. Traders in Jammu have already called for a strike on Tuesday.
