Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said on Saturday that the Govt of india is spreading fear with this advisory and also spreading hatred. "People of Jammu and Kashmir are scared....because of the advisory issued by the home ministry. In the past it has never happened where such an advisory was issued where tourists are being called back. Govt of india is spreading fear with this advisory and also spreading hatred," Azad said while addressing a press conference.
"Landmine was found before, but we never issued such an advisory, we condemn this move on the govt. People of Kashmir and Ladakh are very scared ever since home Ministry's advisory was issued. This has never happened in the past even after high militancy in the Valley, Ghulam Nabi Azad said while addressing a press conference," he added.
