New Delhi, July 12 (IANS) Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday met with a group of Muslim clerics, who discussed with him ways and means to restore normalcy in the Kashmir Valley, which is in turmoil following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani last week.

The clerics said they were satisfied after meeting the Home Minister, who assured them of all possible help in restoring peace in the disturbed valley.

Umer Ahmed Ilyasi of All India Organisation of Imams of Mosques told media later that they will visit Kashmir and urge people, specially religious leaders, there to help the valley to return to normalcy.

“Just like Muslims from any other part of the country, Kashmiris are also our brothers. We are with them and appeal to them to bring normalcy and peace,” he told reporters.
