Akbar Lone who raised Pakistan zindabad slogans could be a MP?
India a big democracy
2/7/2019 11:38:03 PM

ET Report
Jammu, Feb 7: National Conference leader Mohammad Akbar Lone has been nominated as the party’s candidate for the forthcoming parliamentary elections from Baramulla Lok Sabha constituency in north Kashmir.
He is the same Akbar Lone who raised “Pakistan Zindabad” slogans in the Assembly on Feb 10, 2018 when security forces were fighting Jaish terrorists, who had entered into Sunjuwan Army camp in Jammu.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said that India is the only country where a person, who raises slogans favour of an “enemy country,” which has been bleeding India for some many years, is allowed to contest the Parliament elections. “Had Akbar Lone done the same action in some other country he would been booked for sedition and put behind bars. He would never have been allowed to contest the elections again,” the analyst added.
“History stands testimony to the fact that Kashmir centric leaders have never cared for national interests. Whenever NC and PDP are out of power they have always tried to blackmail Centre by toeing an anti-national line. These politicians know it very well that India is a big democracy in the world and they can get away by misusing freedom of speech,” a Kashmir watcher said.
He said that India has been tolerating politicians like Akbar Lone, Er Rasheed, Mehbooba Mufti and others as it’s a large hearted country. “ It’s unfortunate that despite India giving people like, Lone, Er Rasheed and Mehbooba Mufti the space and all the privileges, they leave no opportunity to praise Pakistan, which is a failed state. Had Lone raised Hindustan Zindabad slogan in PoK assembly there is every possibility that he could have been beheaded either by the terrorists or the government? Lone should be thankful that he is a part of Indian democracy,” the analyst said.
Its in place to mention here that when Akbar Lone raised pro-Pakistan slogans in the Assembly his party National Conference distanced itself from his action. “Just spoke to @JKNC_ President Dr Farooq Abdullah Sahib. Dr. Sahib and the entire party is of the unequivocal stand that NC MLA from Sonawari Mr Akbar Lone has spoken out of turn and his slogans in the Legislative Assembly are completely unacceptable...” the then NC spokesman Junaid Mattu had tweeted on Feb 10, 2018.
A politician said that today the same party, which disowned Akbar Lone at that point of time, believes that Lone only can win the Baramulla parliamentary seat in north Kashmir in view of his “popularity and winnability.”
Spread over three districts including Baramulla, Bandipora and Kupwara, the northern Kashmir consists of 15 assembly constituencies. Baramulla seat is presently represented by Peoples Democratic Party patron Muzaffar Hussain Baig in the Parliament.
