Those who demand freedom kill people and rob banks: Mehbooba Mufti
Condemning the killing of Kashmiri Army officer, Lt. Umar Fayaz, Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti Wednesday said it was more painful to note is that the young officer had come home on vacation where he was attending the marriage of his cousin.
“On one hand people want solution of Kashmir and on the other hand people who come from poor backgrounds are killed,” the chief minister said during her address at the 2nd Jammu and Kashmir Medical Sciences Congress and Ist Annual conference of MP PCOS Society at SKICC here.
“Kashmiri people need to ponder that those who demand Azadi are killing young poor boys. On one hand they demand freedom and on the other hand they kill people and rob banks,” she added.
Appreciating the efforts of the doctors who have organized the event, Mehbooba took a dig at TV news channels, saying, “The tourists who are enjoying their stay in Dal Lake, pinch themselves when they see what is being broadcast about Kashmir in the valley.”
Mehbooba asked the delegation of doctors who have come from outside Kashmir for the congress to visit Mughal Gardens and other tourist spots in Kashmir.
