Irfan Naqib condemns attacks on Kashmiris in Jammu, outside state


Srinagar, Feb 17 (KNS): While strongly condemning the vandalism and attacks on Kashmiris in Jammu and other parts of the country by some fringe-elements, District Congress Committee (DCC), Srinagar President Irfan Naqib today said that divisive forces were trying to exploit the unfortunate situation for their vested interests.
In a statement issued to KNS, he said, “Mob violence that broke out in Jammu in the wake of Thursday’s Lethpora terror attack is aimed to create a regional divide in Jammu and Kashmir ahead of the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls. The BJP-RSS is trying to divide the communities for petty political benefits which is shameful.”
“By targeting minority community, anti-social elements were vitiating peaceful atmosphere and unity of the state. Congress will never allow such forces to divide the communities for the petty political gains,” Naqib said.
Appealing the people of all regions and religions to maintain the communal harmony and brotherhood at this crucial juncture, the Congress leader said, “A situation is being created by communal elements to bring regional divide in the state so that favourable political atmosphere for a certain party is set-in.”
He said that hate-speech and violence at the behest of some communal forces against Kashmiris studying, working or doing business outside the Valley was deep-rooted propaganda. (KNS)
