Mr Malik alleged that authorities and other law enforcing agencies, including Army had failed to take action against those responsible for attack on Muslims in Jammu.

Mr Malik said excessive force was being used against peaceful demonstrators in Kashmir, while the security forces remained a mute spectator, when property of the Muslims were being torched by the communal elements in Jammu.

He alleged that the curfew restrictions were not being imposed in the Jammu and violators of law had been given a free hand to attack Kashmir bound vehicles and Muslims in Jammu region.
