JAMMU: Indian Union Minister, Dr Jitendra Singh has accused the Kashmir mainstream parties of unnecessarily creating perception to communalise the situation eyeing the coming Lok Sabha elections.
Talking to reporters on the sidelines of a function here, today during which 14 ambulances were donated to the various areas of his Kathua, Udhampur, Doda Parliamentary constituency, Dr Jitendra Singh made a strong dig at the Kashmir Centric parties for their uncalled for and provocative statements. He said “those who are accusing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of divisive politics are themselves communalizing the situation including the Pul-wama gruesome attack of terrorists on the eve of elections.
Dr Jitendra Singh, while reiterating that the war against the terrorism should be fought unitedly said that some people are trying to create an impression that the war is directed against a particular community which is not based on facts. “The war is against the terrorism and its perpetrators and not against any particular religion especially Kashmiri Muslims”, he added.
He said it is unfortunate that the Kashmir centric leaders are creating an impression that anti terrorism measures are against any particular community including Muslims.
The Union Minister, while terming the reports of threat on Kashmiris as baseless, said that such perception is being created by some leaders of Kashmir just to divide the people. “It is the duty of us all to put the record straight and isolate such forces who try to create a wedge among the communities through the irresponsible statements”, he added.
