Srinagar: Commenting on the statement of Mehbooba Mufti that “If anywhere Muslims are safe then it is in India”, the Hurriyat (G) on Thursday said that Muslims in India particularly those of Jammu and Kashmir will hardly buy this argument. The spokesperson called it the most ridiculous, pathetic and unrealistic statement Mehbooba has ever made.
Hurriyat (G) said that Mehbooba’s father must have briefed her in detail that in the tenure of Congress, of which he was a prominent figure, there had been 40,000 anti-Muslim riots in every nock and corner of India, where lakhs of Muslims were butchered. Slaughter grounds like Babri Masjid, Mumbai, Bewandi, Bhopal, Muzaffar Nagar, Rampur were established by none other than the Congress itself, the Hurriyat (G) said. “In Jammu and Kashmir more than 6 lakh Muslims were slaughtered and the killing spree continues. Presently the collation partner in the local government, BJP and its leaders have hundreds of criminal cases against them. But after assuming power they reshuffled the whole judiciary network in the country, enabling their own people to roam free after releasing and withdrawing the cases against them,” the Hurriyat (G) said.
“The CM may have forgotten, but world especially Muslims recalling the Gujarat carnage shiver even today after 14 years, as 3,000 Muslims were butchered, some burnt alive, women raped and molested, even the bellies of pregnant women torn and the infants cut into pieces. Houses of Muslims were gutted and whole population was forced to migrate,” the Hurriyat (G) said.
