The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
Attack On Temples in Jammu
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) severely condemned the terrorist attack on the Raghunath temple and another adjoining temple in Jammu. Ten persons were killed in the attack and many injured. The series of attacks by suicide squads on temples are clearly meant to heighten communal tensions and provoke reactions and disrupt peace. The latest attack in Jammu comes in the wake of the successful holding of the elections and the formation of the new government.
Keeping all this in view, it is important for all sections of people to realize the sinister designs of the disruptive elements. Maintenance of peace and communal amity is essential to foil their nefarious plans. The central government has to take effective steps to check infiltration of the extremist squads from across the border.
The Polit Bureau conveys its heartfelt sympathy to all the families of those who died in the attacks in Jammu.
