Urging Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to muster courage to sack two senior cabinet colleagues responsible for instigating Kathua people in order to polarize the situation, the J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President G.A. Mir on Friday said it was not the question of any particular community, it is the question of eight-year innocent girl, who was raped and brutally murdered, the statement said.

Earlier, when asked what action the party would take against its ministers Chaudhary Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga, Lekhi said: "What kind of action should we take if someone comes and says that they were misled?"

According to reports, the two BJP ministers had gone to the place of agitation at Rasana in Kathua and had attended a meeting in support of the accused to demand a CBI probe in the matter. "So, the lesson to them is not to believe one side or the other and let the law take its course", she said, adding that they should not have joined the protest.

The rape and murder of the eight-year-old child has rocked the entire country. A week later, her body was found in the same area.

She also accused the opposition parties of doing "dangerous politics" over the Kathua and Unnao rape cases.

The girl had disappeared from a spot near her house on 10 January.

The Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday condemned Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua gangrape and murder case, which has prompted nationwide anger and outrage.

The prime suspect in the case has also been charged with bribing local police officials, including a Sub-Inspector and a Head Constable, to destroy evidence.

Addressing a press conference in New Delhi, BJP national spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi said that the BJP has been speaking out against the Kathua and Unnao rape cases - both incidents that have hogged the national limelight in the last few days.
