Omar blames Modi for killing  of Muslims in Assam

Blaming BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for inciting violence in Assam that left more than 30 Muslims dead, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday accused the saffron party of wanting to divide Jammu and Kashmir into three parts.

“30 Muslims were murdered in Assam because Narendra Modi made a speech there and tried to incite people against Muslims. It is a fact and truth can’t be denied,” Omar said while addressing an election rally in Tangmarg Assembly segment of Baramulla Lok Sabha constituency.

Stating that three days earlier Modi, in an election rally, had branded Muslims living in Assam as Bangladeshis, Omar said, “That statement led to the attacks on Muslims and today 30 Muslims have been put to sleep in the grave.”

On Modi’s recent statement holding his party, the National Conference (NC), responsible for the exodus of Kashmir Pandits from the Valley, Omar accused that the saffron party wanted to divide Jammu and Kashmir into three parts. “People of Jammu and Kashmir are known the world over for a glorious history of amity and brotherhood. Kashmiriyat had given hope to the rest of the country in times of dire communal turmoil,” he added.
Blaming the Opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of being hand-in-glove with BJP, the chief minister said, “The dangerous quid-pro-quo political game being played by the PDP to help Modi, with the hope that in return he will extend his blessings to the PDP leadership, has to be foiled with full force and might.”

Meanwhile, NC patron and Union Minister Farooq Abdullah on Saturday snubbed his brother Mustafa Kamal after the latter blamed coalition partner Congress of cross-voting in south Kashmir’s Anantnag parliamentary constituency.

“Congress votes were transferred effectively to National Conference candidates in the Anantnag parliamentary election. Congress leaders in south Kashmir worked with utmost honesty and dedication to ensure that the NC-Congress coalition candidates win with huge margin,” Farooq said in a statement.
