No Haj for Muslims if they create obstacles in construction of Ram Temple: BJP MLA


BJP MLA from Charkhari, Brijbhushan Rajput, warned Muslims that they won’t be allowed to go on Haj pilgrimage if they create obstacles in the construction of Ram Temple in Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya. He issued the warning through a video on his Facebook page. “The Muslim community should respect the feelings (on the issue of Ram Temple) of 100 crore Hindus in the country. If they don’t do so, we will not respect their feelings too,” he said. “If they (Muslims) create hindrance or stop construction of Ram Temple, their Haj pilgrimage will also be stopped,” Rajput said. The MLA also called upon the people to avenge the killing of seven Amarnath pilgrims by “storming the houses of Millitants”. Rajput demanded that the minority status of Muslims should be repealed and the subsidy given on Haj pilgrimage should be scrapped. After putting up the video on his Facebook page, Rajput told HT it was not his statement but that of 100 crore Hindus. Justifying his stand he said if Muslims were taking it as a threat then let it be. “I completely stand by what I have said in the video,” he said. Rajput is a first-time BJP MLA from Charkhari, a constituency represented by senior leader Uma Bharti in 2012. He is the son of former MP Ganga Charan Rajput who shot into limelight after he threatened to end his life outside the Congress headquarters when party president Sonia Gandhi refused to take over as the Prime Minister in 2004.

Joint resistance leadership in a statement in Srinagar called religious clerics to hold Fateh Khawni on July 6th to commemorate 2nd martydome anniversary of Burhan Muzafar Wani and 126 other martyrs, slain during peoples uprising in 2016. Calling complete shutdown on July 8, JRL will hold a general public meeting in Tral on Sunday.

  • Srinagar, July 4, 2018: Joint resistance leadership comprising,Syed Ali Geelani, Dr Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik, in a joint statement denounced Indian Prime Minister Narinder Modi for his recent statement, saying that Kashmir is not an issue of development or administration, nor it can be resolved through military might. “Dispute related to Jammu and Kashmir is a long-standing issue in international forums and world community has agreed to decide its political destiny through right to self-determination,” JRL said in a statement. While reacting to the statement of Indian Prime Minister, Mr. Narinder Modi, JRL said that his statement is not more than jugglery of words and ilustrates frustration and insincerity. It is not an issue of mere development instead the issue relates to 15 million people for their right to self-determination, saying people since past seven decades are pursuing their sacred mission, they added. India is suffering from power of arrogance, they said and added since past seven decades India is exploiting and looting our resources, saying that authorities in Delhi are deliberately ignoring the hard realities about occupied Jammu and Kashmir. “India forcibly seized Kashmir in 1947 with its military might and we are suffering heavily since that day, JRL said. During this period, more than six lakh people have been mercilessly killed,” while pursuing the right to self-determination in Jammu and Kashmir, properties worth billions destroyed ,women molested , hundreds and thousands youth detained and tortured and killed in torture centers , said JRL and added that instead of stating any logic, they are issuing ‘threats and adding fuel to fire’. JRL suggested Indian leadership to learn from annals of history, saying Kashmir was much more progressive and on fore front in economy and life standard was far more better than other states of India, however blaming Indian authorities for turmoil, disturbance and other issues related economy and development, JRL said that forced occupation has pushed state to stone age like situtaions. Jammu Kashmir has been blessed with rich resources, forests minerals, however were looted and plundered by occupational forces and authorities in Delhi, said they. JRL while referring to authorities in Delhi, said that it is unfortunate that Narinder Modi and other Indian politicians instead of relying on rational thinking are pursuing their ‘fanatical dogma and suggested to realize the core issue related to Kashmir. The egoistic approach adopted by Indian authorities is root cause of turmoil in state, JRL said and added that “it is the youth show that their resentment against the obstinate attitude and brute force used by Indian forces.” “It is a political issue related to humans,” said they and only reasonable and compassionate approach can solve this. “Delhi since last seventy years has been practicing its coercive measures & approach,” said JRL, however failed to change the ground realities. “ . Referring to statement about “transformed Kashmir” and development, JRL asked Prime minister of India to show wisdom and mature approach as his rhetoric about transformation and development has already proved hoax. Tall claims and brags won’t change realities, instead it has caused a damage to you and your position has become ludicrous. A responsible person need not to indulge in ridiculous statements, instead it is wise to realize and accept the ground realities and shun egoistic and stubborn approach, JRL said.

Congress Will Not Ally With PDP “Now Or In Future”: Ghulam Nabi Azad

The political circles in the Kashmir Valley were set abuzz after former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti arrived in Delhi on Friday night.

The Congress today ruled out any alliance with the PDP in Jammu and Kashmir for “now or in the future”, denying reports in a section of the media on a possible tie-up between the two parties.

Asked to comment on the reports, Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad told PTI that there was no question of any alliance with the PDP, which lost power in the state after the BJP withdrew support from the coalition government.

“There is no question, for now or in the future, of forging an alliance with the PDP,” Azad said here.

He denied having met any PDP leader.

The political circles in the Kashmir Valley were set abuzz after former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti arrived in Delhi on Friday night.

The PDP has 28 seats and the Congress has 12 in the 87-member state Assembly. A simple majority of 44 seats is required to form the government and some PDP members have been trying to seek the support of the CPI(M) and independent members.

However, Mr Azad’s statement is expected to scuttle their efforts to form a new alliance in the state.

Mr Azad has called a meeting on Kashmir tomorrow to discuss the future strategy of the Congress in the state which will be followed by a two-day conclave in Srinagar that will be attended by party leaders from all the three regions — Jammu, Ladakh and Kashmir.

The BJP had pulled out of the alliance government last month, forcing Mehbooba Mufti to resign as the chief minister.
