Home Minister Rajnath Singh, while appealing for peace in Jammu and Kashmir, also asked Pakistan not to interfere in Kashmir's affairs.
"I appeal to people to restore peace and normalcy" in the Kashmir Valley, the minister told the media at the end of a two-day visit to the troubled valley.
Stressing that Centre would never tolerate terrorism, Rajnath said while Pakistan carried out operations against militants in Lal Masjid in Islamabad, they encouraged youths to take up arms in Kashmir.
"This should stop.... Pakistani's role is not right. They must change their attitude and mindset vis-a-vis Jammu and Kashmir."
The home minister also expressed condolences to the families of those killed in the days of unrest.
He urged security forces to avoid using pellet guns that have blinded several protesters.
Rajnath added that a dialogue can take place to resolve whatever differences people may have in the state.
