"I as the public representative informed chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and police chief about the incident whose intervention finally helped Ishfaq to get released this afternoon", he said.

The previous ceasefire, which was announced by the then prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and extended twice - January 24, 2001 and on February 22 of the same year - also witnessed an attack on former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah. During Ramzan, Indian forces will now not initiate anti-militant actions and will act only in self-defence or to protect innocent persons. The holy moth of Ramzan is likely to start on Thursday or Friday, May 18, 2018 depending on the sighting of moon.

"The decision would go a long way in healing the wounds of people of the state who have been suffering the pain of violence and uncertainty for the past three decades or so".

Mir said that the announcement is a big leap toward peace and efforts of the PDP leadership for peace and dialogue are making bearing fruit.

Expressing serious concern over the recent killings by government forces and strongly reacting to the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi's visit to Jammu Kashmir, a JKDFP spokesperson said that the PM is visiting the disputed territory only to deceive the world community about the situation in Kashmir. Mehbooba also thanked political parties who backed her idea of "cessation of hostilities" during a meeting convened by her recently.

The Modi government's unilateral suspension of counter-insurgency operations against terrorists in Kashmir during the holy month of Ramzan is a commendable move.

Lambasting the BJP led Central government for placating the separatists of the Valley, Mr Singh said that it had been evident from the Saffron Party's incongruous stand over unilateral ceasefire that there was a dichotomy between MHA and MoD on the issue.

"The initiative is meant to give common masses and right-thinking people of J&K a respite from violence and encourage them to isolate militants, thus breaking the cycle of bloodshed, funerals and recruitment of locals into their ranks", said an official.
