Srinagar, Dec 5 (UNI) Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and National Conference (NC) patron Farooq Abdullah today again urged the Centre to uphold its promise of zero tolerance for the alleged human rights violations in the state.

Dr Abdullah was talking to newsmen after addressing a gathering at the graveyard of his father and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah at Naseem Bagh at the city outskirts on his 102nd birth anniversary.

''Time and again we have been reminding New Delhi about zero tolerance promise on human rights in Jammu and Kashmir. If innocents are killed and women raped, Sadhbavna (Goodwill) will have zero effect and we will be left with no other option than to rethink about Kashmir's accession with India,'' he added.

Earlier, NC leaders and workers remembered late Sheikh Mohammad on his birth anniversary. Dr Abdullah and others assembled at the graveyard early this morning and offered special prayers.

On the occasion, he also released the second edition of the autobiography of his father - Aatish-e-Chinar. The first edition was released in 1980s.

The NC patron said the autobiography of his father would enable younger generations to know about the history of the state and his contribution in its development.
