Boycott everything Kashmiri, even Amarnath Yatra: Meghalaya Governor Tathagata Roy
(Sourced from PTI)
Meghalaya Governor Tathagata Roy today supported a call for a boycott of "everything Kashmiri", including the Amarnath Yatra and purchasing products from the state. Roy, who describes himself as a right-wing Hindu socio-political thinker, writer, ideologue on Twitter, went on the microblogging site to air his views. "Don't visit Kashmir, don't go to Amarnath for the next 2 years," he tweeted. Here's more.
An appeal from a retired colonel of the Indian Army: Don’t visit Kashmir,don’t go to Amarnath for the next 2 years. Don’t buy articles from Kashmir emporia or Kashmiri tradesman who come every winter. Boycott everything Kashmiri.— Tathagata Roy (@tathagata2) February 19, 2019
I am inclined to agree
The BJP leader turned governor also referred to the Pakistan Army "who are handling the Kashmiri separatists" and its role in "East Pakistan" in his tweet, mentioning war crimes like slaughter and rape. Roy's comments come in the wake of the February 14 terror attack by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed terror group in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed in south Kashmir's Pulwama district.
The Pakistan Army (who are handling the Kashmiri separatists) was among their own in East Pakistan in 1971. They slaughtered and raped right and left. And they would have kept EP but for the whacking from India.— Tathagata Roy (@tathagata2) February 19, 2019
I am not suggesting that we go that far. But at least some distance? https://t.co/WxzEpdnw4Z
