Amit Shah Pauses Speech As ‘Azaan’ Plays From The Mosque
Home Minister, Amit Shah, seized his just concluded visit to Jammu and Kashmir to send a strong message to Pakistan.
Shun the gun as treading on the path of violence. Any violence henceforth will not be tolerated
He said there can be no talks with ‘benefactors of terrorism and violence. “Those who ruled for 70 years in J&K suggest I talk to Pakistan”.
‘I want to talk to Gujjars, Paharis and Bakerwals’ and Kashmir Youth”, he said. He was addressing a public rally in the frontier district of Baramulla on Wednesday.
Several J&K parties are of the view that lasting peace cannot be established in the Union Territory unless Pakistan is taken on board.
Former CM Farooq Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti had recently urged the Modi government to resume the stalled dialogue with Pakistan.
But “What good have they (Pakistan) done to Kashmir?”, he asked, asking them to think about their ties with India.
“You gave stones and guns in the hands of the youth, whereas PM Narendra Modiji has given laptops and mobiles into their hands,” he said accusing Farooq Abdullah and Mufti of shielding militants, separatists, and stone-pelters.
The Home Minister has appealed to separatist militants to shun the gun as treading on the path of violence.
