Constitution guarantees human rights, freedom to all: Farooq Abdullah

Jammu: National Conference president Dr Farooq Abdullah on Thursday said that nobody has the right to deprive others from their human rights as constitution guarantees human rights and freedom to all.
Addressing a public rally in Jammu, Farooq said that everyone has their rights and if those rights are transgressed by someone, it leads to destruction.
He said that he will not be with that government which cannot do justice to its people as government has to give justice to every sector, religion and caste. “If BJP wants to make India successful then they should know that India is for everyone not only for high caste people.”
Farooq said that constitution guarantees everyone his or her freedom and human rights, people should not let it happen.
“People have to sacrifice themselves if they want their community to rise. People have to get out of this humiliation and exploitation. They have to fight this hatred, discrimination which tries to put them down,” he added.
He further said that being a Muslim he can visit a temple but a scheduled caste person doesn’t have this right in India. “They are oppressed and if they fear then they will be more oppressed. I am a doctor but I can say that God has bestowed equal wisdom to all the human beings. No one is superior. In today’s times, there are a lot of doctors who belong to the scheduled caste,” he added.
Freedom of press guaranteed by Constitution, Farooq said is elusive in Jammu and Kashmir. “Government’s interference and regulation of the media hampers the effective functioning of any democracy. As the fourth pillar of democracy, its independence is crucial for robust governance. New media policy 2020 has also set alarm bells ringing,” he added.
He said that the idea of holistic development of the people of J&K will remain elusive until their basic democratic rights are not guaranteed and respected. “Right to freedom of expression, protecting labor laws, democratic rights are the key elements that should be ensured to the people of J&K,” he said.
