People rejected ‘mandir-masjid politics’: Mehbooba


Srinagar, Dec 11:Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday said that the results in five states including Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chatisgarh, Tilangana and Manipur is “outright rejection of Mandir-Masjid politics and shows that political awakening among the people in India is on rise.”

Mehbooba, as per Kashmir News Service, said: “Results show people have voted for the betterment of their lives and economic development, and have refused to be led by Mandir-Masjid politics. The results show the people of India truly believe in religious brotherhood and don’t like politics of intolerance and hate. Some leaders who tried to divide people on religious lines spreading discord and hate red among masses have been shown the door. The brotherhood among people in these states has triumphed over divisive forces as shown by the trends set by the election results in five states of the country.”
