NC-Congress responsible for mess in Kashmir: Brig Gupta
9/7/2019 10:24:41 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 7: Despite the government easing out many population control measures instituted after August 5, life does not seem to be returning to normal in Kashmir due to "Civil Curfew" being enforced by a section of radicalised youth backed by the terrorists, stated Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party. Radicalisation is the root cause of alienation which needs to be addressed on priority in order to restore normalcy. Despite NC & Congress claiming to be secular and non-communal as well as the worst victims of militancy, the facts speak to the contrary asserted Brig Gupta. Radicalisation picked up momentum in Kashmir after the re-emergence of Sheikh Abdullah on the political horizon of the state with full backing of the Congress. It gained impetus after 1977, ostensibly with the backing of Pakistan when Zia ul Haq was busy giving shape to implementation of "Bleed India through a Thousand Cuts" doctrine. Sheikh's successor and son Farooq Abdullah first hob-knobbed with the radical Islamic parties through an alliance to contest the 1983 elections against the Congress and later joined hands with the Congress to ensure continuation of dynastic rule rued Brig Gupta. Farooq turned a blind eye to destruction of Sufi culture and growth of radicalism. The unprecedented bungling of elections in 1987 by the NC-Congress duo led to large scale exodus of Kashmiri youth for arms training and once again Farooq Abdullah was found wanting to control the situation. The correspondence exchanged between then Governor Jagmohan and the Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi implicitly establishes the role of Farooq and his administration's inability to control growing radicalisation and alienation in Kashmir. Unfortunately, even Rajiv Gandhi did not act rued Brig Gupta. The ground was being prepared for eruption of "religious militancy" under the nose of NC-Congress. When the militancy finally erupted in 1989-90, Farooq deserted the Kashmiris in the hour of crisis and left them to face the bullets of jihadi terrorists. "When Kashmir was burning, Farooq was golfing in London." asserted Brig Gupta. His return in 1996 and subsequent tenure gave further boost to radicalisation and communalism. Rahbar-e-Taleem programme launched by him provided an opportunity to reemploy in government schools the teachers belonging to Falah-e-Aam, education wing of Jamat-e-Islami which was banned. Thus began the onslaught of radical ideology on the young and impressionable minds under the watch of NC led government.
