Mehbooba Mufti (L) and Omar Abdullah. 

After the Indian Air Force carried out air strikes in Balakot and elsewhere in Pakistan, on Tuesday, the Peoples Democratic Party president, Mehbooba Mufti, advocated for peace and the National Conference vice-president, Omar Abdullah, termed the IAF strike a “new ballgame” and said that war is never an ideal option to resolve disputes.

Mufti, in a series of tweets said, “If my aversion to unnecessary retaliation & subsequent war makes gullible people question my nationalism then so be it. I would rather bat for peace & save lives than sacrifice countless ones just to satisfy collective egos and misplaced sense of pride & patriotism.”

Mufti also said, this volatile situation will spiral out of control and as usual Kashmiris will be the biggest casualties.

And the NC chief, Omar Abdullah, also tweeted, “We’ve entered a whole new paradigm with the Balakote air strike. The post Uri strike was to avenge our losses, Balakote was a “preemptive strike to prevent an imminent JeM attack”. Totally new ballgame.”

The two Kashmiri leaders also expressed their concerns on the developing situation between India and Pakistan.
