SRINAGAR: Expressing strong resentment against the statement of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) president Praveen Togadia, the chairman of Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) Shabir Ahmad Shah on Saturday said it reveals nothing but the “frustration” of the VHP leader.
Togadia on Friday demanded that Modi-led BJP government should carry out “carpet bombing” in valley to “stop attacks on government forces by militants”.
In a statement issued here, Shah said, “It is unfortunate that New Delhi lacks the will to accept the reality and continues with its grudge against the people of Kashmir. It is due to people like Togadia that the subcontinent is on the verge of falling into the pit of destruction,” he said.
Shah said that by advocating for bombing of Kashmir, people like Togadia cannot scare us. “It is our genuine suggestion to the people of India to get rid of such communal zealots,” he said.
Shah added, “Kashmiris are used to India’s state-terrorism from last 7 decades and this bombing the valley makes no sense. Togadia must not forget that Kashmiris have passed through very tough stages in their freedom struggle and the nation that challenged India’s supremacy for the last seven decades cannot be cowed down by any power or intimidations.”
The DFP chairman said Kashmiris don’t belong to that nation where animal rights are protected but human rights violated. He suggested Togadia to join some elementary school “to seek knowledge”.
Shah also slammed Delhi-based media for its “one-sided version” on Kashmir. “Kashmir dispute is a living reality which is connected with the world peace and those who dream of establishing peace in the world without resolving Kashmir are living in a fool’s paradise,” he said.
