SRINAGAR: People’s Democratic Party President Mehbooba Mufti Tuesday said that BJP is not ready to stop until they dismantle all our religious & Sufi traditions to take control by implementing their divisive agenda.

The statement from former Chief Minister Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti comes a day after the Waqf Board of Jammu and Kashmir ordered a ban on Dastarbandi across religious places in the region.

Mehbooba Mufti shared pictures of the Turban-tying of Prime Minister Mehbooba Mufti and Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on her Twitter handle and wrote, “Hypocrisy has no limits since BJP themselves leave no opportunity to get turban tying ceremony done whether at a mandir, dargah or gurdwara. They aren’t ready to stop until they dismantle all our religious & Sufi traditions to take control by implementing their divisive agenda”.

She added, “Steamrolling J&Ks cultural & traditional practices – arresting religious leaders, prohibiting Sajad nasheens from performing their traditional duties & now banning Dastarbandi which is a universal ceremony of giving blessings at religious places”
