In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Jammu based outfit ‘Dogra Front’ Thursday staged a protest against Peoples Democratic Party President, Mehbooba Mufti, over her statement regarding talk with Pakistan for the resolution of the Kashmir dispute.
Mehbooba Mufti in a statement on Tuesday said that Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, should hold a dialogue with Pakistan for resolution to the Kashmir conflict and bring peace in the region.
Reacting to reports of a recent ‘quiet’ visit of Indian officials to Doha to speak with the Taliban’s political leadership, she said, if they can go to Doha and talk to the Taliban, they should have a dialogue with the Kashmiris and with Pakistan too in order to bring about a resolution.
Eyewitnesses said that the protesters, led by the Dogra Front President, Ashok Gupta, raised slogans against Mehbooba Mufti and burned her pictures.
The protesters said that Mehbooba Mufti’s statement was anti-India and she should be booked and lodged at New Delhi’s Tihar Jail.
The protest was held on a day when Minister Narendra Modi is holding an all-party meeting with the political leaders of IIOJK including Mehbooba Mufti.
Addressing the protesters, Ashok Gupta said those who do not like India or actions by the Indian government such as introduction of laws like CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act) or abrogation of Article 370, should go to Pakistan.—KMS
