Srinagar: National Conference on Thursday said the recent surveys by the J&K police seeking information from the public about their religion, sect and Maslak was unacceptable and would have dangerous social and political implications.
“Such moves could be aimed at creating fissures in our society which is known for amity and peaceful coexistence of people of various faiths, sects and ideologies,” NC Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani said in a statement issued here.
Addressing party workers at NC Headquarters here, Wani said the party requests Governor N N Vohra to withhold the survey and stop all such surveying activities per such forms until all doubts about the questions and their justification are cleared.
“Also, asking families where their daughters have been married is a question that stands out as odd considering it has no implications on the law and order and security implications that the police should be concerned about,” Wani said.
He said the party would strongly oppose any steps that could possibly be aimed at fragmenting and dividing people of the state.
Meanwhile, National Conference on Thursday lashed out at PDP President Mehbooba Mufti for her “baseless and inaccurate remarks” that misrepresented the sentiments and political struggle of the people of Shehar-e-Khaas.
“While PDP’s praise of Bakshi Ghulam Mohammad was understandable given commonalities of sabotage of democracy, their lies were brazen and shameless,” NC MLA Habba Kadal, Shameema Firdous said.
“Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah, Dr Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah have all shared personal and emotional bonds with Shehar-e-Khaas and its people – as was proven by the warm receptions they have always received on tours of inner city.”
