Budgam, March 14 (ANH) : People’s Democratic Party (PDP) youth wing today held a protest march in Budgam against the ban on Jamaat e islami as well as the hounding of Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar Faroq by the government of India through NIA.
The protest was lead by PDP youth wing district president Shahnawaz Mir .
Terming the ban on jamaat as uncalled for and the summoning of Mirwaiz by NIA as witch hunt, Shahnawaz mir demanded that the ban be immediately revoked and NIA should desist for acting as a tool of vengeance against muslims in jammu and Kashmir.
“BJP is using National Investigation Agency (NIA) to get political mileage. We strongly condemn summoning Mirwaiz Umar Farooq. Activists of Jamaat e Islami are being harassed. Many have been jailed, this is clear act of vengeance. On the other hand extremist organizations like Hindu Mahabsabha , Bajrang Dal etc are being given state patronage in many places”, mir said.
Scores of activists of PDP youth wing were carrying placards and marched from DC Office Budgam to main chowk and raised slogans against BJP and government of India.(ANH)
