The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has raised questions over the conviction of Yasin Malik in the terror case. The party asked how the conviction would help in resolving the Kashmir issue. The PDP insisted that the Kashmir issue was a political problem and punishment would not solve it. Describing the latest development as part of a ‘legal process’, the party said such actions have not worked in the past and will not work in future also.
A PDP spokesperson said, “We have seen that people are elected, convicted and hanged alternately, but has this resolved the Kashmir issue? Will this conviction solve the Kashmir issue? Will there be a solution?”
PDP alleges discrimination in getting justice
The PDP also alleged that different parameters are used for justice and said, “It also depends on who is facing justice. We have seen different parameters being used. Those who killed the father of the nation are worshipped. Only yesterday the person who killed the PM was released. Mosques are being bulldozed and minorities are being lynched. We hope justice is done will be given on the same parameters.”
BJP national spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla posted a picture of former PM Manmohan Singh shaking hands with Yasin Malik on Twitter. Questioning why the Kashmiri separatist leader was given protection under the UPA regime, he asked “Will the Congress party apologize for this sin?”
In an exclusive conversation with Republic Media Network, Jammu and Kashmir BJP’s state unit chief Ravinder Rana said, ‘Whoever kills innocent people, ruins the lives of small innocent children, who will plot to shed blood on this land, he It will definitely take time to deliver justice, but in the end the pot of sin will burst and the criminals will definitely get the punishment for their misdeeds.
