Why is GoI so uncomfortable with Jammat-e-Islami, asks Mehbooba

Srinagar: PDP President Mehbooba Mufti on Friday asked that why is Government of India is so ‘uncomfortable’ with the Jamaat-e-Islami.

The former Chief Minister while reacting over the ban imposed over the organization, adding that while Hindu groups are given ‘carte blanche to spread misinformation & vitiate the atmosphere. But an organization that has worked tirelessly for Kashmiris is banned.’

In another tweet Mehbooba added that ‘ideas cannot be banned or jailed, need a better idea to replace it.’

She added that the ban is another example of GoI’s ‘muscular approach to deal with the political issue of JK.’

Earlier, the Government of India said that Jamaat-e-Islami (JK) is responsible for the formation of Hizbul Mujahidden, which is the biggest militant organization active in Jammu and Kashmir.

GoI also said that the organization is also responsible for ‘propagation of separatist and radical ideology and the organization has nothing to do with Jamaat-e-Islami.
