Burhan Wani encounter doubtful
Varanasi, July 17: Terming the encounter with security forces in which Hizbul commander Burhan Wani was killed as doubtful, social activist and Swaraj Abhiyan leader Prashant Bhushan said government of India should realise the fact that military is not a solution of Kashmir problem.
Swaraj Abhiyan leaders also warned saffron brigade against its alleged bid of making India a Hindu nation asking its leaders to take lesson from Sri Lanka. Another leader Yogendra Yadav alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is indirectly supporting Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh's agenda of spreading communal hatred with beef, love Jehad and Ghar Vapsi issues
Prashant, along with Swaraj Abhiyan leaders, including Yogendra Yadav, Anand Kumar and Teesta Setalvad, was in the city on Saturday to kick off their campaign in UP to save the state from the alleged "bid of Rashtriya Sawayamsevak Sangh, BJP and SP to start communal polarization in state by fanning riots ahead of 2017 assembly polls".
Talking to reporters, Prashant said, whether the encounter, in which Wani was shown killed with his accomplices by the security forces was real or fake would become clear after proper investigation. But, he said, the government should try to search the root of the problem that is compelling Kashmiri youths like Wani to become terrorist. The government should also search ways other than military to solve the Kashmir problem, he added.
Earlier, while addressing the inaugural session of the two-day convention for peace and harmony commenced at Patel Dharmshala in Teliabagh, Prashant said defeating RSS's motive of ensuring communal polarization is the biggest challenge for Swaraj Abhiyan.
"It is unfortunate that RSS has emerged as the biggest organisation in the country. We will have to strengthen our organization and its social networking to counter the bids of RSS," said Prashant asking to expose ineligible RSS puppets getting important position in educational field to allegedly "saffronise education system".
He said saffron forces can't make India a Hindu nation by harassing Muslims. He also targeted Narendra Modi government for allegedly trying to abolish beneficial laws including the land acquisition act brought by the UPA government.
Making it very clear that Swaraj Abhiyan has not come here to provide any political alternative to the people Yogendra said, "Presently we have come among UP people to make them aware about the soul of secularism instead of becoming part of divisive politics of BJP and SP. SP had suffered loss during parliamentary election by following the path of BJP to ensure communal polarization of votes. But unfortunately ahead of assembly election SP has start realising that it can be benefitted by joining the game of communal polarization of votes with BJP."
Yogendra said that India has witnessed Sri Lanka losing its glory following the bid of Sinhalese to dominate Tamils but political parties avoided taking lesson from it. He alleged that even those political parties which were termed secular used the theory of secularism for their political gains and could not ensure development of the minority population.
Locals defy curfew .....
this morning, a police official said.
"The local Muslims carried the body of the woman to the cremation ground," he said. Malhotra and his family did not migrate when most of the Kashmiri Pandits fled the Valley at the onset of militancy in 1990. The old city has been under curfew since last Saturday, following killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces.
Normal life remained paralysed across the Valley where at least 39 people have died and over 3,100 left injured in the violence since last week.
