SRINAGAR: Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM), Syeda Aasiya Andrabi, on Sunday said the agenda of “fascist and rogue right-wing” Hindutva forces will be face severe condemnation and opposition in Jammu and Kashmir.
In a statement issued here, Andrabi said after attacking Muslims in its states, the BJP-led “Hindu terrorists” were now targeting Muslims in JK “which is a matter of concern”.
“Narendra Modi’s becoming of Prime Minister of India was a major signal that Muslims in India would face tremendous hardships in future,” she said, adding, “Unfortunately, the BJP and an extremist Hindu party Jan Sangh came to power in JK with the help of selfish and immoral stooges of Kashmir.”
She said besides the presence lakhs of armed forces, in Jammu and Kashmir, “the pro-India stooges, who have sold their souls to India, are equally responsible for the extension of this illegal Indian occupation”. “Infact, these paid agents (PDP, NC or any other pro-India party) have done more harm to Kashmir cause,” she said.
Andrabi said the pro-India elements are not concerned about the sufferings of people of the state as “their only aim is to hold on to their chairs”.
The DeM chief said BJP is now extending its “anti-Muslim” agenda in Jammu and Kashmir. “The latest example of it is the Reasi incident where a family of Gujjars was attacked by RSS goons in the name of safeguarding cows. One should be concerned that how emboldened these anti- Muslim forces have become that they have started attacking Muslims in a Muslim-majority state,” she said.
Aasiya said though police and others condemned the incident, “it is a mere lip service and the terrorists are roaming around and looking for someone else to attack”.
“These Hindutva forces must understand that Jammu and Kashmir isn’t India and such things won’t be tolerated here but will be met with widespread opposition and condemnation,” Aasiya said.
Andrabi added, “People should strengthen the movement and understand that it is based on ideology in which the Muslim ideology is up against a Brahmin ideology. So we need to be strong and persistent in our struggle against the Indian occupation.”
Meanwhile, the DeM chief paid tributes to two militants killed in a gunfight with government forces in Hayatpora, Budgam on Saturday and expressed solidarity with the the bereaved family.
