Srinagar, June 27: Jammu Kashmir Awami National Conference (JKANC) president Begum Khalida Shah has strongly reacted against the remarks made by BJP president Amit Shah at Jammu recently wherein he has accused the family of Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah of accumulating wealth at the cost of Stateâ€™s people.
In a statement, Begum Khalida Shah said, â€œBJP president should bear in mind that the economic status of the family of Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah in Kashmir is known to all since the times when Amit Shah wasnâ€™t even born.â€
She said Amit Shah in his speech in Jammu revealed his party BJPâ€™s anti-Kashmir mindset and made a vain attempt of defaming the Sheikh family.
â€œHe (Amit Shah) through his poisonous remarks also revealed his and his partyâ€™s imperialist and communal mindset by sowing the seeds of enmity between the provinces of Jammu and Kashmir,â€ Begum Khalida Shah added.
â€œIn BJP, the people like Amit Shah can attempt to erase the Kashmir province from the State, sow the seeds of enmity between people of Kashmir and Jammu by their propaganda, carry out bloodshed in the region, suppress Kashmiris economically through military might; but if Amit Shah thinks that through power, he can be successful in his designs of vanishing the identity of Kashmir, he is living in a foolâ€™s paradise. And such mindset only reveals his mental bankruptcy.â€
Begum Khalida Shah said the endeavours of safeguarding the unity, integrity and efforts of progress in all three provinces of the State â€“ Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh â€“ will continue.
â€œAmit Shah doesnâ€™t know that the Late Sher-e-Kashmir Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah went to jail for his people, unchained them from the pangs of slavery of dictatorship and made the people of this State usher into the era of democracy. By the grace of Almighty, people like Amit Shah can never afflict any harm on the identity of the State of Jammu and Kashmir,â€ she said.
