Taking a dig at BJP for its alliance with the PDP in Jammu and Kashmir, Shiv Sena on Saturday said the ruling party has joined hands with “those responsible for the ouster of Hindu Pandits from the Valley”.
“It is surprising that those (BJP) who were playing the politics of showing concern towards Hindu Pandits (in J&K) are today in power in the state by joining hands with those who played an important role in the ouster of pandits from the Valley,” Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.
“Yet, Hindus have no place in Jammu and Kashmir today and no attempts are being made to change the situation. It has become a crime to be a Hindu in the country and the Hindus, who are in power are the biggest enemies of the community,” it said.
Pointing towards Home minister Rajnath Singh’s remarks that revenge would be taken for the terrorist attack at the Indian Airforce base in Pathankot, the Sena said that “the day will never come and likewise, nobody will raise a voice to protect Hindus”.
It further said terrorist organisations like ISIS and Al-Qaeda are indulging in violence in the name of Islam and threatening Hindus residing in India, yet, there is no one in the country who has the audacity to stand up against these terror elements.
“The issue of Ram temple in Ayodhya has quietly been kept on the back burner and there are self-proclaimed Hindutva leaders who make on and off pro-Hindutva statements. But, when it comes to fighting terrorist outfits like ISIS, they cower down,” the BJP ally said.
