(UNI) Asserting that the footprints of global terror outfit ISIS were not large in Kashmir valley, Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbagh Singh, however, said that the fact that a section of the youth were being radicalized on those lines can’t be denied.
The DGP said an illusion is being created by some elements that ISIS has a very large presence in the valley by waving their flags publically, but that is not true.
“But the fact that people are being radicalized on those lines can’t be denied,” he warned.
“Very serious activities on the part of anti-national elements to radicalize a sector of youth are going on. Kashmir civil society has been a very open society with a very secular culture, where people extend respect to places of worship,” the DGP told reporters during a press conference.
He said Kashmir civil society has been a very open society with a very secular culture, where people extend respect to each other’s worship places.
