What was that again about respect for sacred things? Amarnath is a Hindu temple in Kashmir. Well, of course, this is just the bridge, not the temple itself. But there have been enough temples destroyed in the past. “Militants blow up bridge on Amarnath yatra route,” from PTI, with thanks to Sunindia. The “militants” in question are, of course, the mujahedin of Kashmir.
Militants have blown up a bridge on the route to holy cave shrine of Amarnath in Pahalgam area of Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir, official sources said here today.
Bridge no. 2 at Chandanwari, 15 km from Pahalgam, was blown up by using an Improvised Explosive Device late Monday night, the sources said.
Chandanwari is the first halting station for the pilgrims en route to the holy cave shrine in south Kashmir Himalayas.
