Srinagar: Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said that Kashmiris will fight against aggressors like they did in 1947, when they fought Pakistani invaders and forced them to flee.
The comments were made in Srinagar during a PDP party’s first youth convention after abrogation of Article 370 of Indian constitution that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir. The meeting held at Sher-e-Kashmir Park in Srinagar.
“Kashmiris know how to repel aggressors. We know it. We know it. This is the same Kashmiri that fought aggressors from Pakistan bare handed, and forced them to flee,” Mehbooba was quoted as in NDTV report.
The PDP president was further quoted saying Kashmir had had an emotional and constitutional relationship with the country. “But you (BJP) demolished it. You played with our honour and identity, you destroyed our state,” Mufti said.
Mehbooba said that the deployment of armed forces personnel in the region will not make any positive difference instead the government of India should resolve the Kashmir issue.
“You can imprison people and kill them. But you cannot imprison an idea. So long you don’t resolve the Kashmir issue, no amount of troop deployment will make a difference,” Mehbooba was quoted as saying.
