All Parties Hurriyet Conference (APHC) Chairman Syed Ali Gilani has said there is no threat to the upcoming Amarnath yatra in Indian held Kashmir (IHK) and hue and cry in this regard a calculated move aimed at maligning and discrediting the political struggle of Kashmiris.
Syed Ali Gilani, in a statement issued in Srinagar, denounced misinformation campaign carried out by biased media of India, KMS reported.
He said people in Kashmir, while continuing with the age-old tradition of providing best hospitality to pilgrims, have always been friendly and generous to visitors and particularly with Amarnath Yatris.
He said that Amarnath yatra has been continued for decades and people here have treated the Yatries with unique hospitality. Kashmiris had always been hospitable, decent and received the yatrees as their guests.
