The Shiv Sena on Saturday came down heavily on Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed for his demands and warned that the nation would have to pay heavy price if Sayeed’s ‘poisonous’ demands were fulfilled.
“Demanding the remains of Afzal Guru (a convict in terror attack on Parliament) is anti-national. Guru had committed a crime against the nation and showing sympathy to him would mean making mockery of judgement of the Supreme Court and the Indian law,” said an editorial in Sena mouthpiece Samna. The editorial also targeted the BJP-PDP alliance.
“The BJP’s positive politics in Kashmir will not only create trouble for that party but it would also pose danger to the nation. Those who know the reputation of Mufti Sayeed and his family would have never joined hands with them,” said the editorial.
