Terror outfit LeT endorses Azad's statement
Cong leaders talking language of separatists, terrorists

Early Times Report
jammu, June 22: Top Congress leaders issuing back to back controversial statements vis-à-vis Kashmir during the past 24-hours has created an impression that these leaders are supporting the terrorists and Pakistan.
One of the veteran Congress leaders stirred the hornet's nest by claiming that security forces have killed more civilians than terrorists in anti-terror operations.
His statement was welcomed by the Pakistan based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba.
In a statement the LeT chief said: "We are of the same opinion as Ghulam Nabi Azad and others that India was bringing back the era of Jagmohan by imposing the Governor rule so as to sabotage the infrastructure and commit massacre of innocents. It is a move to further intensify the mass killings."
On the other hand another Congress leader in Kashmir praised ousted Pakistan President General Musharaf and asked the Government of India to hold talks with Hurriyat which represents the gun-wielding boys.
Another Congress leader who joined the party recently termed Pakistan as victim and the Governmnet of India as aggressor.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said, "It looks like that Congress leaders have lost the plot and are talking in the language of separatists and the terrorists. It looks like that a pro-Pakistan lobby is working within the Congress which is out to appease the terrorists and the separatists."
He said that the veteran leader has insulted the security forces by stating that they have killed more civilians than the terrorists. "Someone needs to tell the Congress leader that security forces are facing bullets and stones 24x7 despite that they are exercising restraint and are not retaliating," the analyst added.
A politician said that Congress is trying to play politics in Kashmir to appease the elements who advocate Pakistan's cause as it faced a befitting defeat in 2014 parliamentary and assembly polls in 2014 in the Valley. "On the other hand the base of Congress has been eroded in Jammu region and it knows that it's difficult to regain the foot hold which has been lost," he added.
"These Congress leaders have held responsible positions in the past and they need to mind their language and ensure that they don't vindicate the stand of the anti-nationals and the anti-India elements whose only aim is to spread terror in Jammu and Kashmir," the politician said, adding that Congress leaders should retract their statements and apologize for playing politics over the issues pertaining to "national security and country's integrity."
