NC condemns ‘destroy Muslims’ remark of BJP leader

Srinagar: The National Conference on Saturday condemned the statement of BJP leader asking voters to cast their vote in favour of Modi if they want to “destroy Muslims”.
In a statement, the party’s spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar said that such horrible assertion is reflective of BJP’s aversion for Muslims.
“What is alarming here is the fact that Modi, cabinet ministers and BJP functionaries haven’t censured the person for his hateful statement against Muslims,” Imran said, adding, “We are hearing this kind of intimidation in broad daylight by a BJP leader. The person had sordidly vowed to destroy the breed of Muslims and not just that, he has said that the party will bring machines from China to shave Muslims and convert them to Hinduism. Why is PM mute on this issue? This does not behove his political denomination.”
The spokesperson said that having been failed to deliver on the promises, BJP is again resorting to hate mongering and fanning of communal passions.
“Such distasteful communal election time rhetoric is tailored to fan communal passions and polarise the people in the run up to elections. The sheer naïve attitude of PM and other high rung leaders of BJP over this issue reveal that divisiveness and polarization is the social and the accepted policy within BJP. Every sane voice in India should come forward and dismiss this sort of campaign rhetoric,” he added.
He further said: However, this should act as an eye opener to the people of country while they make their choices for the kind of government they want to have for next five years. “We have had enough of this. Our party too is spearheading the campaign against such divisive agenda of BJP and its cronies in our state with the active support of people.”
Imran said that it is not just hateful rhetoric mongering that is on rise now, “We are seeing how barefacedly the BJP is giving mandate to such people as have been involved in various communal activities. All this explicitly reveals the fact how exceedingly communal BJP is to its core. People of the country are affront with this kind of filthy politics, the country is beseeching for change. We in our state are fighting BJP and its cronies. So far, people have rejected BJP and its cronies in Baramulla and Srinagar parliamentary polls. The people of Anantnag are also all set to trounce their divisive agenda as well.”
“We in our state have been the worst sufferers of BJPs anti-Muslim disposition,” he added.
