first_imgenforced Srinagar, Sep 20 (PTI) The business community in Kashmir today warned of snapping commercial ties with Jammu-based traders if an economic blockade is enforced in the Valley as was threatened by Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP). “We want to send a clear message to our Jammu counterparts to explain their position on VHPs statement. Do they want to do business with us or support radical groups like VHP which are hell-bent on dividing the state on communal lines,” Yasin Khan, president of Kashmir Traders and Manufactures Federation (KTMF), said. VHP had on Friday threatened to launch a massive agitation and enforce an economic blockade in Jammu and Kashmir if the assembly allowed a discussion to revoke provisions criminalizing bovine slaughter and sale of beef in the state. Khan said the business community in Jammu must clear its stand on whether they supported VHP on the matter. “The ball is in the court of the Jammu business community. We want them to go public on the issue,” he said. Khan, who is also chairman of Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA), said if an economic blockade was enforced, they would use Muzaffarabad?Srinagar route for business activities. “We wont hesitate to use Muzaffarabad?Srinagar route for trade so that Kashmir does not remain dependent on Jammu,” he said.
