In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, asserting that a spyware used against terrorists has been weaponised to deal with political opponents and dissenters, the President of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mehbooba Mufti, has said that BJP has taken a leaf out of how Britishers would suspect and treat Indians during the colonial era.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Me-hbooba Mufti was reacting to reports that over 25 people from Kashmir were selected as potential targets of surveillance between 2017 and mid-2019 by an as yet unidentified government agency that was also believed to be a client of the NSO Group of Israel.

“A spyware used against terrorists has been weaponised to deal with political opponents and dissenters. BJP has taken a leaf out of how British-ers would suspect and treat Indians during the colo-nial era.

Government of India has gone rogue and is brazenly subverting basic human rights,” Mehbooba wrote on blogging site twitter.—KMS
