Srinagar: Welcoming Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s assertion that the fight against terror was not against any religion but to counter a mindset that led the young to commit atrocities on innocents, the BJP’s Kashmir unit said the statement was an “eye-opener” for those who left no stone unturned to pit one community against the other.
In a statement, BJP spokesperson for Kashmir, Khalid Jehangir, said the prime minister was bringing like-minded nations on one platform and was getting support world-over.
The prime minister’s statement is an eye opener for the people who leave no stone unturned to communalize the situation and try to pit one community against another, the BJP spokesperson said.
Referring to the statement of King Abdullah-II that Islam was not about radicalisation and humanity united all religions, Jehangir said the visiting dignitary’s statement was a slap on the face of such people who are linking radicalisation with Islam and misleading the masses.
Our government is committed to restoring peace and dignity in Jammu and Kashmir, he said adding that all efforts were being made to get the “misguided youth” back into the national mainstream.
Asserting that no religion preached hatred or violence, Jehangir said all faiths taught tolerance and Jammu and Kashmir was always an abode of tolerance.
The entire world is supporting Modi’s stand against terrorism, he said.
In Jammu and Kashmir, some people are working overtime to push youth towards picking up arms in the name of religion, Jehangir said.
“They are the real culprits and should be dealt with sternly,” he added.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that action against terrorism and radicalisation was not against any religion, but aimed at countering a mindset that leads the young to inflict atrocities on innocents.
