‘How many pieces will you cut India into’, Abdullah asks BJP
Jammu: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah Saturday again landed in controversy. “You have made one Pakistan, how many Pakistans will you make, how many pieces will you cut India into?” said Farooq Abdullah, while speaking at a gathering in Jammu.
He re-asserted his statement made on November 11 stating, “Yes, I say it (PaK) belongs to them (Pakistan).”
He further went on to say about Pakistan that “they are not wearing bangles”.
“You are sitting in palaces. Think about the poor people living in border areas, who are bombed daily,” Farooq said.
“BJP leaders in UP give speeches and threaten Muslims that if you don’t vote for us (BJP), we’ll show you. India belongs to everyone, be they Hindu, Muslim, Sikh or Christian. And it is their right to freely vote for whoever they want to. You can’t force anyone,” Abdullah said at a gathering in Jammu.
The former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister was referring to a viral video in which a BJP leader in UP is heard threatening Muslim constituents to vote for his wife in the upcoming civic polls or face dire consequences.
