Ghulam Nabi Azad's statement on J&K gets support from LeT
Pakistan based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba has supported Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad's statement on alleged atrocities carried by India in Jammu and Kashmir. In an email, LeT's spokesperson Dr Abdullah Ghaznavi quoted chief Mahmood Shah wherein he said imposing Governor's rule would sabotage infrastructure in the state. Earlier this week, J&K came under Governor NN Vohra's rule after BJP dumped PDP.
It will intensify mass killings, claims LeT on Governor's rule
"India is up to bring back the era of Jagmohan by imposing the Governor law so as to sabotage the infrastructure and commit a massacre of innocents. It is a move to further intensify the mass killing," LeT said. Further, it dissed the Ramzan ceasefire.
LeT also slams Mehbooba Mufti, accuses India of atrocities
In the e-mail, LeT also slammed former J&K chief minister Mehbooba Mufti. "Mehbooba Mufti has strived to her excellence in establishing the agenda of RSS in the Valley and Jammu. 8 lakh Indian forces are committing atrocities in Jammu Kashmir," LeT said. LeT claimed India was violating human rights in the valley for last seven decades and wasn't serious about peace.
At center of LeT's email was Ghulam Nabi Azad's statement
LeT received its fodder to make such claims after Ghulam Nabi Azad said the army killed more civilians than terrorists. The senior Congress leader said, "They killed 13 civilians in Pulwama and just one terrorist. Saying that it will be an all-out operation, clearly shows that they plan to do a massacre." Stressing on peace talks, Azad said even US and North Korea reached consensus.
Soon, BJP leaders reacted to Azad's statement
Just like anyone would have expected, Bharatiya Janata Party's leaders were quick to react to Azad's words. Subramanian Swamy said this was Congress's old belief. "I would have understood if these were the words from some terrorist sympathiser but coming from the leader of opposition in RS is sad," tweeted Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore.
