Srinagar, February 28 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Peoples Democratic Party President Mehbooba Mufti launching a fierce attack on the Modi-led Indian regime over the recent killings including that of a Kashmiri Pandit in Pulwama has asked the Indian govenrment if the militancy is “eroded from the Valley”, then why New Delhi is putting thousands of Kashmiri people in jails in the name of militancy.
The sharp reactions from PDP chief came while she visited Pulwama and met the family of Sanjay Sharma, a bank security guard, who was gunned down by unknown men when he was on his way to the local market, the other day.
“On one hand, the [Indian] government is putting thousands of our people in jails in the name of militancy. Our houses are being attached. NIA-ED raids are being conducted. Thousands of our people are jailed in the name of terror funding and militancy. Today only four houses were attached and we are told that militancy is over. If militancy is over then who killed him [Sanjay Sharma]?” she asked.
The PDP chief denounced the killing of the Pandit and also criticized the Modi government for crackdowns against Muslims in the name of eroding militancy.
“Everyone [especially Muslims] is ashamed of the incident. We are those Muslims of Jammu and Kashmir, who during 1947, when Hindu-Muslim riots were happening all over India, saved all the Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs,” she said, adding that today the Muslims themselves are in trouble here.
She also demanded ₹ 5 lakh compensation to be paid to the three children of Sanjay Sharma.
