A tangled tale written in blood

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [Images] on Saturday reviewed the situation in Jammu and Kashmir [Images] where violence is continuing over the Amarnath land row.

Singh held discussion with External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee and Defence Minister A K Antony about the situation and possible solution to the issue.

Mukherjee on Friday held detailed discussions with former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam [Images] Nabi Azad and PCC president Saifuddin Soz.

The Prime Minister, in his Independence Day speech, voiced concern over the situation on the border state and came out strongly against "divisive politics" on the Amarnath issue.

Singh had asked political parties not to use religion to divide people but come together in finding a permanent solution to problems plaguing Jammu and Kashmir.
