To appease separatists, NC's Lok Sabha candidate uses derogatory language against PM
Politics hit new low in Kashmir

Early Times Report

Jammu, Mar 17: Once again politics in the state of Jammu and Kashmir has shown its true colour with mud slugging and using lewd language emerging as a new normal. On Sunday, when an election rally of the national conference was being held in north Kashmir with party's Lok Sabha candidate Akbar Lone as the campaigner, not even the Prime Minister of India was spared in order to grab the headlines and appease separatist sympathisers.
When reporters asked Lone about his comments on the ban being imposed on Jamaat-e- Islaami, he used unparliamentary, derogatory and abusive language against none other than the Prime Minister himself. When even the ideologies could be different or we can say poles apart, still there is a respect that the Prime Minister of world's largest democracy and 1.2 billion people deserves. However, Lone known for his non- sensical statements, jibes and rants didn't care about ethics and made the Post of the Prime Minister target of his smear campaign. The video of the statement has meanwhile gone viral on social media wherein netizens question such abusive language being used by the person who if wins will represent his people in India's parliament. "Come what may. We should not use such language against the Prime Minister of the country. There are rules that need to be followed or else there is no difference between us and the outlaws. There is a line which needs to be drawn," says a Jammu based political commentator.
Earlier on February 20, Lone issued a statement in which instead of slamming the anti-national forces who have turned Kashmir into a theatre of war, has predicted that India is going to loose Kashmir soon.
Such a statement issued by a former legislator, former speaker of the legislative assembly and former minister is in itself an indication about how low can the politicians in Kashmir stoop to appease separatists.
It was him who was the first time raised pro-Pakistan slogans on the floor of legislative assembly in Jammu and Kashmir and even accused the central government of terrorising the people here. "All such rants are nothing but clear attempts to garner votes. If such elements are allowed to go scot-free, it will instigate people for more violence and more hatred will spread in the state which is already riven by crises," says Kashmir based senior social activist.
Pertinent to mention here that Lone was the first mainstream politician from the state who even opposed anti-militancy operations in Jammu and Kashmir.
Even 10 days before the gruesome episode of Pulwama shock the nation, Lone made a startling statement against anti-militancy operations in Kashmir.
He even went ahead, accusing the government of India of treating all Kashmiri people as militants. "By saying that Modi can break the back bone of militancy means that they treat all Kashmiri as militants, and they can do anything for that, even they kill civilians during encounters. Govt. doesn't care about people of Kashmir which Modi proves by his statement about militancy. They can do that but they also kill civilians which people have seen in 2018," Lone was quoted as having said in his statement by the news reports.
