Separatist National Front chairman Nayeem Ahmad Khan on Tuesday termed the proposed hoisting of tricolour in Lal Chowk on May 16 an act of provocation by "fascist and extremist forces" hell-bent to spread hatred.
"Jammu and Kashmir is a disputed territory and those who want to hoist tricolour in Lal Chowk must know that by their silly acts the ground reality of the state cannot be changed," Khan said in a statement.
He said that such kind of nuisance forces have started a campaign of hatred against Kashmiri people on social media. "Go to Youtube or any other such social website, you can see how actively they are campaigning against Kashmiri Muslims," Khan said, adding "the irony is that some elements from the Pandit community are wholeheartedly supporting this campaign against Kashmiri Muslims."
One wonders, he said, how the law enforcing agencies spare such hate spreading elements even knowing about their illegal activities.
"The role of Indian media, especially the electronic media is very unfortunate in this regard and it has volunteered itself to favour the anti-Kashmiri trouble creators keeping aside all professional ethics," he said.
He said that the Mufti Sayeed regime has become a "puppet in the hands of the Hindu extremist forces" and has closed its eyes towards the plight of Kashmiri Muslims.
