Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a Hindu extremist organisation, Friday came down hard on Kashmiri freedom fighters raising pro-Pakistan slogans, saying that they should be sent to Pakistan.
“Those who are chanting pro-Pakistan slogans, especially the separatists along with their families, the government of India shall not allow them to live on the soil of Indian nation,” RSS senior leader Indresh Kumar threatened.
“This may result in the peace and prosperity of the Kashmiri nationalists. The government of India should deport all Kashmiri separatist leaders to Pakistan,” he said.
Kumar, who is also patron of Muslim Rashtriya Manch, expressed his views at a seminar, Challenges before the Country and the Role of the India’s Muslims, organised by the Jammu and Kashmir unit of Manch. J&K Constituent Assembly Speaker Kavinder Gupta was the chief guest at the programme.
Kumar further said that it is “goodwill” of the people and government in India that people who raise pro-Pakistan slogans are allowed to live on its soil but “now the limit of tolerance is over”.
Kumar also advised J&K Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayed to focus on the development and respect the mandate given by the people and the hand of support to the coalition government forwarded by Bhartia Janta Party (BJP).
Kumar, whose party is behind anti-Muslim violence, expressed his grave concern over the communal riots that have occurred since Independence in the country. He said this has only resulted in the loss of life and property of the common man. He appealed to the Muslims “not to get exploited in the hands of opportunistic groups like Hurriyat Conference”.
“These things add misery to the lives of the people and disturbance to the peace process, prosperity, development, education system of Jammu and Kashmir. This also leads to the increase in the gap between rich and poor,” he said.
