The BJP on Thursday strongly condemned Hurriyat (G) deputy general secretary’s remark that “inspiration for the freedom struggle of Kashmir is only Islam and establishing a model Islamic state is our first and last objective”.
“Hurriyat is ‘His Master’s Voice’ and speaks the language Pakistan wants it to speak. It has no ideology of its own and is a puppet of Pakistan’s ISI.
“It is for this reason that its leaders rush to the Pakistan High Commission at the first given opportunity,” BJP spokesperson Brig Anil Gupta said.
It is a non-negotiable fact that Kashmir is an integral part of India and no power on earth can separate Kashmir from the country, said Gupta.
“The statement by the Hurriyat leader is aimed at disturbing communal harmony in the state and instil a sense of fear and uncertainty in the minds of the minorities but the nationalist cadre of BJP is always ready to meet such challenges and ensure unity and integrity in the state”, he said.
Gupta further said that the creation of an ‘Islamic State’ is the declared aim of terrorist outfits like Islamic State, al Qaeda, LeT, JeM and Taliban.
Hurriyat is acknowledging the fact that it is working to further the agenda of these terrorist organisations in Jammu and Kashmir, Gupta said.
“Such open and defiant support of these dreaded terrorist outfits by the Hurriyat demands an immediate ban on the party as all these terrorist outfits are already facing an international ban,” he added.
Pakistan, which has launched a proxy war against India and is openly sponsoring terror, will never succeed in its nefarious design of disintegrating India -- particularly Jammu & Kashmir, Gupta said.
He also criticised the Pakistan high commissioner for inviting Hurriyat leaders for the Pakistan Day function in New Delhi.
