Farooq rejects Mehbooba's Hindutva agenda claim over bhajans at J&K schools

National Conference Chief Farooq Abdullah contradicts his Gupkar ally and PDP Chief Mehbooba Mufti. Farooq rubbishes Mehbooba's 'Hindutva agenda' claim over school children singing the Hindu hymn "Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram" in the Kashmir valley. He said one doesn't become Hindu by chanting bhajans. I also sing bhajans. He added, "If a Hindu visits Ajmer Sharif Dargah, then will he or she be transformed into a Muslim?" Mehbooba's claim of using schools as a "political tool" has triggered a big storm. J&K BJP President Ravinder Raina accused Mufti of "poisoning young minds". As per the documents, the recitation of "Raghupati Raghav" was part of a series of activities that were taking place to mark the 153rd birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
