Creating fear and suppression to eliminate a sentiment won’t work: Mehbooba Mufti


SRINAGAR: Former Jammu Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti Saturday said that the misadventure from the Government to create fear & suppression to eliminate a sentiment won’t work in Kashmir Valley.

She said even basic human rights of people have been suspended in Jammu and Kashmir. Mehbooba Mufti was responding to a tweet from a Kashmiri Sikh woman who had posted on micro blogging site that they faced immense hardship due to e-curfew after the death of her uncle.

“GOI’s dubious claims that people of J&K now enjoy equal rights is a barefaced lie as truth is that even their basic human rights dead or alive are suspended with pervasive impunity,” Mehbooba Mufti wrote.

She added that their (Govt) misadventure of creating fear & suppression to eliminate a sentiment is counterproductive since feelings & emotions don’t dissipate or vanish into thin air. These feelings of betrayal, subjugation & anger are absorbed & passed on from one generation to the next.

“Instead of reaching out, every successive policy is undertaken to humiliate & collectively punish J&K. These punitive actions compound this sense of betrayal and rage,” Mehbooba Mufti concluded. (KNT)
