SRINAGAR: National Conference general secretary, Ali Muhammad Sagar, on Tuesday expressed shock over government of India’s move to confer former Kashmir governor Jagmohan with civilian award Padma Vibushan.
“Awarding an infamous and notorious man like Jagmohan depicts moral bankruptcy,” Sagar told a local news agency.
“Whole world knows how Jagmohan butchered people in Kashmir and how he planned and organized things to put people of Kashmir in trouble. Jagmohan played major role in mass migration of Kashmiri Pandits from Valley to Jammu,” he said.
He claimed it has become a trend in India to confer awards on political basis. “Jagmohan was the production of pro-communal forces and he also remained a minister during NDA rule. It is absurd on part of India to glorify those who perpetrated crimes in Kashmir Valley,” he said
