New Delhi: Slamming the BJP over nationwide protests against the Citizenship Law, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday said people of the country need not visit Kashmir to experience the subjugation of the locals in the valley as the BJP has ensured that a ‘Kashmir-like’ situation prevails in every part of India.
“Fellow citizens don’t need to visit Kashmir anymore to witness their subjugation. BJP has brought Kashmir right to the doorstep of every Indian,” Mehbooba Mufti tweeted.
On Monday too, Mufti questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s assertion about debate and dissent being the essence of democracy in the light of the detentions and curbs on opposition leaders in Kashmir.
Notably, the Twitter handle of the PDP president is being operated by her daughter Iltija Mufti after she was placed under preventive detention since August 5 when the Centre announced abrogation of provisions of Article 370.
Other top mainstream leaders, including Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah, were also placed under detention hours ahead of the Centre abrogating Article 370 and bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories.
Protests against the amended Citizenship Act are being held across the country ever since the bill was introduced in Parliament earlier this month.
