SRINAGAR: The Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) chairperson Muhammad Yasin Khan has condemned what the “venomous” statement of Speaker of J&K Assembly against the Rohingya refugee Muslims in Jammu.
Khan, who also heads the Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation (KTMF), in a statement termed it unfortunate that the speaker of the lawmakers was speaking the “Hindutva agenda when Muslims are nowhere at fault.”
“Rohingya Muslims are being pushed to witch-hunting only because there seems to be a conspiracy against Muslims. The same is happening in Sambha where people from Muslim community are being unduly targeted. Such developments are alarming,” Khan said.
He said such developments seem to be part of the “unfulfilled conspiracy as hatched against the Muslims of this state in 1947”. “If such conspiracies continue to endanger the secular fabric of this state, then we may also have to reconsider our decisions.”
The KEA chairman appealed to prime minister of India, chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir and home minister of India to look into the matter.
