Sopore: A day after the state Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) claimed to have held a Mahila Morcha meeting at Tarzoo Sopore, scores of girls on Thursday accused BJP of playing ‘cheap politics’, saying that the party played with the honour of these girls.
The girls also lashed out at its woman activist for uploading their pictures on social media networking sites.
Earlier on Wednesday, BJP had claimed that party held a Mahila Morcha meeting at Tarzoo Sopore that was organized by District Mahila Morcha President Baramulla Arifa Jan while District President BJP Baramulla DK Nehru was the chief guest on the occasion.
“A couple of people along with a woman Arifa Jan from Dhobiwan village entered into our house promising to set up a ‘Cutting and Tailoring’ Centre for the girls. My three sisters called other girls from neighborhood. Even our relative Ghulam Hasan was accompanying them who first introduced them as Social Welfare employees and then informed us that they are party leaders from BJP and they have talked to Social Welfare Department for setting up a Cutting and Tailoring’ Centre for girls in the village,” Danish Ahmed Bhat, the brother of three sisters said.
He said that Arif Jan, took some photographs of the girls using her cell phone. When girls objected, she said photographs are for record purposes.
“The girls were so upset, even one of my sisters tried to end her life when they saw their photographs have gone viral on the social media, while netizens abusing them freely,” Bhat said adding BJP played with the honour of these girls and the main culprit is the BJP worker, Arifa Jan.
The girls said they will register an FIR against the BJP workers.
“We were cheated by them particularly by Arifa Jan. We talked to them after they assured us that a ‘Cutting and Tailoring’ Centre will be setup for them but they presented us as BJP Mahila Morcha workers,” the victims said and requested netizens not to abuse them on social media.
