Omar’s message even in grief earns Modi’s applause

NEW DELHI: While condoling the death of Omar Abdullah’s uncle Mohd Ali Mattoo, PM Modi on Monday appreciated the call given by the former J&K CM for people to maintain social distancing.
“My uncle.. passed away after brief illness. At this difficult time, the family appeals to everyone to respect the guidelines to not gather either at his residence or the graveyard. Your prayers from your homes will give peace to his soul,” Omar had tweeted on Sunday. In response, the PM tweeted, saying: “Condolences to you and the… family. May his soul rest in peace. In this hour of grief, your call to avoid any large gathering is appreciable and will strengthen India’s fight against Covid-19.”
The Union Territory of J&K has so far reported 49 cases of Covid-19 with two deaths.
