Amit Shah’s West Bengal speech clear call for Hindu Rashtra: PDP



Srinagar, Jan 23: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday termed the BJP President Amit Shah’s West Bengal speech an open call for a Hindu Rashtra and said that the Saffron party chief has challenged the very idea of India.

Shah while addressing a rally at West Bengal said that Hindu, Buddhist, and Sikh need not be afraid in India because the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill has been brought to grant them citizenship. He also termed Muslims as infiltrators and stated that time for their deportation has come.

“This is nothing but an open call for a Hindu Rashtra. Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in itself is laying foundations of a Hindu Rashtra and exclusion of Muslims and Christians. What Amit Shah has said is communal poison and this is a moment of challenge for right thinking Indians who still believe in Idea of India as we have always been made to believe,” said senior PDP leader and former minister Naeem Akhtar.


He added that the statement of BJP President has sent a very negative message to the communities other than the country’s majority community. Such remarks, said Akhtar, aren’t being taken positively in the states like Jammu and Kashmir which have Muslim majority character and other states with sizeable Muslim and Christian population like Kerala, West Bengal, UP and Bihar and northeast states.

“What Amit Shah has said negates the essence, letter, and spirit of the constitution of India which is a covenant of all communities, all classes, and all people of the county to live together,” Akhtar said.

The PDP leader said that the BJP is setting up a dangerous game for electoral gains in the country and is playing a communal hatred card as last resort to win elections. “Unfortunately, BJP has only one goal and that is to win elections at whatever cost. The real issues facing the country including the problems of Jammu and Kashmir which are of a major nature besides joblessness, agrarian crises have been thrown in cold storage,” Akhtar said.

Beware of activists impacting K-movement: Geelani to Youth



Srinagar, Jan 23: When young blood is so enthusiastic to achieve their goal, no power on earth can force them to subjugation; this was stated by Hurriyat (g) Conference, Syed Ali Geelani, in a telephonic address to the mourners of the slain  Dr Shams-ul-Haq at Soghan Shopian on Wednesday.

Quoting Geelani, the spokesman in a statement said that Hurriyat (g) chairman reiterated his pledge to take the movement to its logical end and will never allow anybody to barter the precious blood of “martyrs”.

“We need to be aware of this and we are duty bound to safeguard their sacrifices and should desist from such activities which prove detrimental for our movement,” he said.


He said that deceitful slogans of development, prosperity or material gains can never be a substitute for freedom. Politicians have turned into political leeches, sucking every drop of our blood to satisfy their “masters” in Delhi.

The separatist leader said that our movement has become so precious that no perk and privilege can compel us for any compromise.

Stressing upon people in general and youth in particular, Hurriyat (g) chairman said that we need to strengthen our faith and protect our civil, social, religious and human liberties, avoid miss deeds and nourish the Islamic culture in our homes and society without indulging in sectarian hatred and social evils.
