Extending greetings, BJP incharge Avinash Rai Khanna said, "may this auspicious occasion herald the beginning of happiness, prosperity, progress and peace for all citizens and also those who would be observing fast for entire month.
"Holy month of Ramzan should come as an end of dark era (of terrorism and violence) and guide all misguided people towards right direction."
Khanna also hailed the Centre's decision with regard to security operations in Kashmir.
He said it must be lauded by all and reciprocated by ranks of militants during this month and they should not indulge in any kind of violence and bloodshed.
"However, this has come as an opportune time for the youth in particular who have been misguided and blindfolded by elusive and impracticable promises by the elements inimical to their progress,
"They must shun this path for ever and this month should come as a light in the darkness for them to come into mainstream," Khanna said.
