Parties supporting banned outfits in J&K anti-national: Governor Satya Pal Malik

first_imgGovernor Satya Pal Malik on Thursday termed mainstream political parties that support banned organisations in Jammu & Kashmir as “anti-nationals” and “were playing into the hands of Pakistan and terrorists.”“The political parties coming out in support of banned organisations are making their position clear and are siding with separatists. This only helps militancy become stronger. Any party or person supporting separatists is anti-national and is playing into the hands of terrorists and Pakistan,” Mr. Malik said in Jammu.Both regional parties, Farooq Abdullah’s National Conference (NC) and Mehbooba Mufti’s Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have demanded revocation of the ban on the Jamaat-e-Islami, imposed by the Union Home Department on February 28. Ms. Mufti on Wednesday hit the streets against the ban and termed it “autocratic” and a “direct interference into religious rights.”last_img
