Mehbooba Mufti compares BJP-led governments rule to that of Zias regime

In yet another indirect verbal assault against BJP-led government, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti likened the party's rule to that of former Pakistani military dictator General Zia-ul-Haq and accused it (BJP) of "poisoning" people's minds.

She said that the neighbouring country is still paying for the seeds of hatred sown by the military dictator.

In a party rally held at Bhatindi in Jammu, Mehbooba alleged that the military dictator's actions has created so much of hatred that instead of books, children found guns in their hands.

"A general who ruled our neighbouring country told the people that there that he will bring real Islam. Teaching the people about religion, he created so much of hatred that instead of books children found guns in their hands. You can see result of that today," she was quoted as saying by Indian Express.

She noted that presently, Pakistan is neck deep in debts and that the people there are regretting for supporting the general.

Referring the UT administration calling Army after power employees went on indefinite strike in protest against privatisation of assets, Mehbooba said that Jammu and Kashmir has been made a laboratory where things are first tested there and then used elsewhere the country.

She said the administration called the Army instesd of talking with the agitating employees.

If they want to train their guns from the Army's shoulders for everything, the PDP leader said, "then what is the difference between them and that general in Pakistan''.

She also referred to Muhammad Ali Jinnah in her address. "Muhammad Ali Jinnah fought for India's Independence struggle…. but we have one complaint against him that he partitioned our country and separated Hindus and Muslims from each other… But if you look around in our country today, there are thousands of Jinnahs who… are now dividing people as Hindus and Muslims," she said.
