Jammu, January 10
Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti asked the countrymen to ponder why Jammu and Kashmir is in turmoil against the backdrop of the fact this Muslim majority state rejected two-nation theory and threw its lot with India .
Mehbooba Mufti whose government was cornered by the opposition parties, particularly National Conference and Congress for its inability to stop the killing of “ innocents,,” shared the concern over violence interrupting the situation in the Valley. “ We share this concern,” she said while replying to the debate on motion of thanks to Governor’s address to the joint session of the state legislature on January 2 .
She was replying in the legislative Assembly where former Chief Minister and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah had cornered her government for its “ failures in containing the deteriorating situation in the Valley where more and more youth were joining militancy and were also willing to take part in certain-death fidayeen attacks , “ on Tuesday. But he was not there to listen to her reply on Wednesday evening citing the continuing civilian killings in Valley as a reason of protest for boycotting her reply in the House.
Mehbooba agreed that the situation was “ fragile” with encounters, fidayeen attacks and other modes of violence .Reiterating that this violent situation cannot be contained by violence by police or army . “ There is a sense that there is an issue that needs to be addressed.”
The country men should think over it as what has gone wrong in Kashmir that despite being Muslim majority rejected the division on the religious basis . “ We are for India and we depend on the country for everything but our urges too should be understood and reciprocated.”
