BJP had supported PDP ‘in good faith, they remained in clutches of Jamaat-e-Islami agenda’, says Jaitley

Srinagar: Union Finance Arun Jaitley on Monday said that the BJP had supported the PDP in ‘good faith’, however they remained in the ‘clutches of the Jammat-e-Islami’s agenda.’

In a series of tweets, Jaitley once again blamed the Congress for the problems in Kashmir.

In another tweet, he said that Kashmir issue cannot be solved by those who created the problem.

He added that the issue will be resolved by someone who is fully committed to totally integrate the state with rest of India.

Jamaat-e-Islami, a socio-religious organization was recently banned by the Government of India for links with militant organizations and fanning secessionist sentiments in JK.

Recently, Mehbooba held a protest against the Jamaat Ban in Anantnag and said that ‘interference in religion will not be tolerated’.

Mufti has vehemently opposed the ban. She recently asked that why is Government of India is so ‘uncomfortable’with the Jamaat-e-Islami.

“While Hindu groups are given ‘carte blanche to spread misinformation & vitiate the atmosphere. But an organization that has worked tirelessly for Kashmiris is banned,” she said in a tweet.

She also pointed out that ‘ideas cannot be banned or jailed, need a better idea to replace it.’

Jamaat, in their statement, termed the imposition of ban on the party as ‘unconstitutional, undemocratic and unethical’.
