Jammu Tawi, December 7
The State VHP President, Leela Karan Sharma and former union minister, Prof Chaman Lal Gupta today condemned the statement of Farooq Abdullah wherein he openly asked his cadre to support Hurriyat and asked all fractions of Hurriyat to unite.
Addressing the media persons here, Sharma said that Farooq Abdullah has come off his true colours and continues to change his colours according to his suitability. The Hurriyat is an upper ground mouthpiece of the militant organisations & is the root cause of the disturbance.
Sharma pointed out that Hurriyat is also responsible for the migration of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley. Such a statement is most deplorable & condemnable. The nation may remember that it was Farooq who for the first time established a first militant organisation known as “Alfatah” & was the founder President of this organisation.
VHP is fully determined to counter all these organisations at any cost & also call upon the so called NC leaders of Jammu province whether they subscribe to the statement of Mr. Farooq Abdullah & ready to support Hurriyat or in a position to condemn the same otherwise it will be presumed that by subscribing to the statement of Mr. Farooq Abdullah they will be providing support & hideout to the militants of which Hurriyat is a fountain head.
Suresh Chander Working President, Shakti Dutt Sharma State secretary, Ashok Gupta Prant Gou-Raksha Pramukh, Rakesh Sharma State co-convener BajrangDal, Subhash Gupta were also present in the Press conference.Meanwhile, Strongly indicting the National Conference (NC) leader, Dr Farooq Abdullah for siding with the separatist Hurriyat leaders of Kashmir, the former union minister, Prof Chaman Lal Gupta observed that its was unfortunate that the son is belittling his tall father, Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah who had publically pledged that he would never accept the two nations theory of Mohammad Ali Jinnah till last drop of his blood.
In a press statement, Gupta said, “What can be more ridiculous than that Dr Farooq made this declaration at a function which was organized to remember the great Sheikh on his birthday.”
He said that there appears that Farooq is eyeing on by-elections to two Lok Sabha seats viz Srinagar and Anantnag. By his acrobats the NC leader intends to have his pound of flesh out of the turmoil in the valley but it would be too early to comment that whether Farooq would be able to gain the support of those who have been traditionally adversaries of the Sheikh and his NC. But by indulging in pro-terror and pro-bigotry utterances the NC leaders are spoiling what the Sheikh had earned as being a staunch believer of secularism through his slogans of respect for all the religious faiths.
