Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday asked state governments to take stern action if there is any attack on Kashmiris, calling those who targeted them recently in Lucknow “crazed people”.Addressing a public meeting here, Modi brought up the Lucknow incident in which two Kashmiri vendors were thrashed on Wednesday, allegedly targeted by members of a right-wing group over the Pulwama attack that killed 40 paramilitary personnel last month.

The prime minister called the perpetrators “sirphirey log” (crazed people) in near identical remarks at the meeting and on Twitter.”It is very important to maintain an atmosphere of unity in the country,” Modi said.

He congratulated the Yogi Adityanath government for acting promptly over what some crazed people did to our Kashmiri brothers in Lucknow.”I would also like to request other state governments to take the strongest action possible wherever there is an attempt to do something like this,” he said.

The prime minister was addressing the meeting after flagging off the commercial run on Lucknow Metro’s North-South corridor, through video conferencing from Kanpur itself.
