SRINAGAR: PDP President Mehbooba Mufti Monday said laws are created for the welfare of the public, but in Jammu and Kashmir they are weaponised to disempower, humiliate & punish.

Former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti was referring to the eviction drive initiated by the LG Manoj Sinha administration/

Mehbooba in a tweet said, “The collective punishment & humiliation is this government’s way of keeping people of J&K on tenterhooks & fighting for mere survival so that they don’t have the energy to fight the onslaught against their identity”.

Laws are created for the welfare of public, but in J&K they are weaponised to disempower, humiliate & punish. This latest diktat was issued because despite GOI misusing all the agencies at its disposal & unleashing draconian laws, aren’t getting the desired results, Mehbooba further said.
