Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah on Friday said the waving of ISIS and Pakistan flags reflects the frustration and anger in the youth as nothing is being done for them.
“It is actually the frustration and anger in the youth. Nothing is being done for them. They can’t show their anger by any other method except by putting these flags up,” he told the media here.
“Kashmir is in a very bad shape, extremely bad shape. The young generation is going on to a path of destruction and Mufti’s Government is not thinking on how to save the situation. The youth is not educated and wanting to take the gun. It’s evident every time, everywhere. They are attacking towers. What is a tower attack going to do?” said Abdullah.
“I am absolutely clear that the border will never change. Whatever you may do, border is not going to change. What must be done is friendship between the two countries. It is essential for survival of Kashmir and when I say Kashmir, it is Jammu-Kashmir and Ladakh. I remember Vajpayee ji’s words ‘dost badle ja sakte hain, padosi badle nahi ja sakte’. Either we will go with them in a friendly manner or move towards destruction. I am today repeating those words. They (Pakistan) should also understand this that the Muslims across the world today are facing destruction. Who is responsible for it?” he asked.
The National Conference leader also used the occasion to target Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed.
“I am sorry to say, but Mufti Sahab is not understanding the situation. His ministers are continuously looting the people. They think that they are not going to stay for long, so they are trying to make as much as possible.”
Earlier today, two offices of telecom companies were damaged by a grenade attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Srinagar district. (ANI)
