Unable to digest the groundswell of nationalism and growing national sentiment in favour of Bharatiya Janata Party, Congress has resorted to lowly hate politics through motivated statements by its leaders blaming Bharatiya Janata Party for planning to communalise the situation before the 2019 Parliamentary elections. Not only has that one of its senior most leaders laid serious accusations blaming Indian Army for deliberately killing more civilians than terrorists, another won has advocated “Azadi” for Kashmir,” stated Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party. Ghulam Nabi Azad has gone to the extent of accusing the Central Government of planning “massacre of innocents” in Kashmir by imposing Governor’s Rule.
The statement of Azad has been welcomed by none other than the dreaded Pakistani terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), proving that they both are speaking in the same language and share a common ideology, accused Brig Gupta. LeT spokesperson while criticising the Governor’s rule in an e-mailed statement said that Lashkar is of same opinion as that of the Congress leader Azad and its other leaders.
Another veteran Congress leader, known for changing loyalties, in his recent forthcoming book has seconded the view of Pervez Musharraf that Kashmiris will “prefer to be independent”, if given a chance. Despite having sworn by the Constitution of India on numerous occasions Soz is not only supporting secession and Azadi but has also advocated for giving preference to Hurriyat above “mainstream” parties. Rahul Gandhi needs to explain to the nation if the Congress party also supports and seconds the secessionist and pro-Pak ideology of its Kashmiri leaders, demanded Brig Gupta.
It is not happening for the first time. Earlier also immediately after the Burhan Wani’s elimination by security forces Lashkar Chief global dreaded terrorist, Hafiz Saeed, had praised the Congress party as good ‘elements’ and criticised Modi Government for defaming him and Pakistan. “What a praise from the mastermind of Mumbai massacre”, exclaimed Brig Gupta. “ Rantings of anti-Modi statements by leaders like Mani Shankar Aiyyar on Pakistani soil, calling names to the Indian Army Chief and questioning the Surgical Strikes by demanding proofs, and lately Saif –ud –Din Soz, the turn coat politician of J&K praising Parvez Musharraf (architect of Kargil Conflict) by seconding his advocacy of Azadi for Kashmir and LeT backed Azad’s statement that, “Indian Army is killing more civilians than terrorists. They take action against four terrorists and kill 20 civilians” proves beyond doubt that Congress is propagating Pakistani propaganda in India and a strong Pakistan lobby exists within the Congress,” rued the spokesperson.
“Congress and its ally JKNC is also spreading a canard of BJP planning to communalise the environment prior to the elections. It is the Congress-NC duo that has mastered the art of communal politics and used it in every successive election held so far.
The recent attempt of Ghulam Nabi Azad to polarise elections in Karnatka is well known because he was exposed by the media. The way Kathua case was used by these parties to communalise the situation and shifting the blame on Dogras of Jammu to portray them as intolerant and rapists is too fresh in the memory of the people,” stated Brig Gupta. Congress needs to introspect and tell the nation where it stands rather than shifting the blame on BJP through a motivated propaganda, advised Brig Gupta.
