Mufti also responsible for Kashmir turmoil: Omar Abdullah

Srinagar, Thursday, February 29, 2008:

Opposition National Conference President Omar Abdullah on Thursday said that former chief minister of Indian administered Kashmir Mufti Muhammad Sayeed was also to be blamed for the outbreak of insurgency in the region.

“If Dad is blamed for the uprising in 1989 so should be Mufti Muhammad Sayeed who was the Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee chief in 1987,” Abdullah said addressing a news conference here Thursday.

Abdullah’s father Farooq, also a former Indian administered Kashmir chief minister is often blamed for the outbreak of armed rebellion in the region after rigging the 1987 assembly polls with the tacit support of New Delhi.

Abdullah said that in 1987 Congress led the government at New Delhi and added that being the JKPCC chief, Mufti should have been in a better know how of the possible rigged polls.

He also accused Mufti of giving a free hand to troopers to deal militancy with iron fist in the valley when he was the Indian Home Minster. “The ramifications of this were alienation of Kashmiris," he said.
