In a major development the government of India today asked security forces not to launch operations in Jammu and Kashmir during the holy month of Ramzan.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has conveyed the central government’s decision to Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today.

The decision, seen as a good gesture of government might help in bringing peace in the valley which has witnessed large scale violence in recent times.

The central government’s decision is to help the peace loving people to observe Ramzan in a peaceful environment, a home ministry spokesperson said.

The security forces, however, reserve the right to retaliate if attacked or if essential to protect the lives of innocent people, the ministry said.
