Vested interests engineering communal divide on eve of elections

Early Times Report
UDHAMPUR, Aug 2: Strongly condemning the attempts being made by certain vested interests to create communal divide for political motives in the hitherto peaceful regions of J&K on the eve of elections, Harsh Dev Singh, senior AAP leader appealed the civil society and youth to expose and oppose the nefarious designs of such divisive forces. We have an age old history of communal harmony and brotherhood which can't be allowed to be subverted by reckless politicians for promoting their narrow parochial political interests, said Singh. He was addressing a press conference in Udhampur today.
Strongly condemning the sacrilegious act of damaging Kali Mata murti at Chenani by a notorious character named Sandeep owing allegiance to a particular political party, Singh said that the timely apprehension of the culprit by Chenani Police had averted a major crisis which could have led to communal tension in the hitherto peaceful tehsil. He said that mere arrest of Sandeep Sharma was not sufficient and the Police needed to unearth the conspiracy and expose all those who were operating from behind the scene with the sole objective of creating communal divide to subserve their political objectives ahead of Assembly Elections. Had the Police not apprehended the culprit, the vested political interests would have created communal tensions so as to fulfil their nefarious designs. Likewise, Singh appreciated the Chenani police for solving the case of mysterious death of one Chatru Ram at Shiv Dhar Chenani where too some vested political interests were accusing a particular community of his murder in a bid to create communal polarization. He said that all such attempts of polarization and creating hatred on caste or communal basis would be fought tooth and nail.
Flaying the reports of attempts of vested political interests of trying to engineer communal divide for vote bank politics in various other parts of J&K, Singh urged upon the youth not to fall prey to nefarious designs of bigoted, fascist parties. "We need to unite to face the onslaught of the enemy rather than falling in the trap of opportunist politicians. We have to give the message of Unity and brotherhood. The freedom that we obtained is the result of the united struggle of people belonging to various religious faiths. We can't trivialize the supreme sacrifice of our valiant Jawans and freedom fighters by resorting to hate campaigns and communal violence engineered by vested interests. The youth has to carry forward the age-old legacy of mutual accommodation and goodwill in the ultimate interests of a stronger and powerful India", said Harsh Dev Singh.
Cautioning the vested political interests to refrain from fishing in the troubled waters of the erstwhile State, Singh said that people will not tolerate their attempts of creating communal polarization for power politics. "Don't you dare exploit the sentiments of the people on communal lines? Stop resorting to such gimmicks on the eve of elections. Vote bank politics has caused immense damage to our social fabric, our values, our traditions and our entity as a sovereign democratic republic. Think of the nation which comes first. You can't promote your parties by imperilling the nation and its people. People were closing observing the role played by all political parties and would stand by those who value national interest above their narrow political interests", said Singh.
"Faith and politics should be kept separate. This general rule needs to be followed by all in the interests of the nation and public good. It was generally believed that most sinister and ominous parties were those which used religion and Gods to control the people and to achieve power. It's unfortunate however that some reckless politicians and power hungry parties were adding their own litre of fuel to communal tensions and thereby trying to cause conflicts in society on religious lines for vested interests. The saner elements therefore needed to join hands to save mankind and prevent religion from becoming the new currency of politics", asserted Singh.
